To everyone else who attended the event. I must say that there were several nicely executed speakers there....some really nice examples of woodworking, etc. Of course, I cheat.....I just throw on paint....
I noticed that there was a preponderance of mini speakers, too. And full range single driver systems. It seems that toobs are very popular...and the Bottlehead meistro had some very interesting stuff on hand.....gonna have to check into that further. I don't know if toobs are for me, I hear they tend to warm up a room and I already run a tad hot...don't like to be in an overly warm room for too long. We'll have to see.

Terry.....what can I say....but "thank god, I finally used up the purple" However, I did find another interesting color.....and it ain't black or dark gray. It IS dark and classy looking....though I may throw caution to the wind and go with something even MORE eye-abusing than the purple...maybe a red or bright blue or canary yellow......well, I just don't know for sure, yet.

Toobs can be very addictive, the only shortcoming being that they tend to be on the short end when it comes to power. With inefficient multiway speakers, a lot of power is used up getting them to satisfactory levels, often at the expense of dynamic headroom. I think that Lew Hardy's Vivaldi speakers demonstrated that efficient (toob friendly) speakers and outstanding, dynamic sound are not mutually exclusive.

I can see that Rhonda (John's better half) has been influencing him again. He's admitted that he tends to be pretty conservative when it comes to color. Thank goodness she's there to save him from color blindness. I wish that I could use bright, vivid colors, but Bondo tends to only come in sedate, muted colors, although I suppose I could use colored pencils to scribble notes to myself on the cabinets instead of my usual #2 lead.

Best Regards,

Nothin' wrong with that. Our missing friend Terry Cain used many beautiful, bright colors for his Abby.

For those thinking about the Adire DDRs, keep in mind that these things crave power. If you are wanting to use a 5 watt amp you'd be better served with a different design.

I would like to join in saying thanks to Lew (spelled correctly this time) and hope we can all do this again.
