A couple of weeks ago a friend gave us a pair of Altec 604E speakers and crossovers in cabinets. The drivers look new!

I'm thinking of doing up an open baffle system with the 604E's as the main drivers and adding a pair of EV SP15's as the mid bass helpers... Could be interesting with 2 100dB 15" alnico drivers per side that only need to go down to 100Hz. Below 100Hz the cardioid subs that have 2 15" Dayton IB15 drivers each take over.

Nice small system with 8 15" drivers...

Insert jealousy here.

If you think your system's overkill, I'll happily give some of them a new home...

At the opposite end of the spectrum/'something completely different', picked up a Cowon J3 PMP yesterday. Surprisingly nice sounding unit, Wolfson DACs.

Just some M4 T nuts to bolt in a few 15" bass drivers On a different note i received a nice pack of 100 MPSA42 transistors i had been waiting for...

Excursion should never be a substitute for cone area. Always have both, just to be sure...
That's what the T nuts are for... 4 x 15" +/-17.5mm excursion


Bring on the earthquake effects...

event horizon - please play

Let me know if you have any house left.

Cal, all those drivers look similar to my bedroom floor at one time, 'cept I had just 1x 15" driver, 1x10" driver, a couple of 8s, and lots of small stuff...

I've nearly finished the extension speaker for my (overkill) guitar amp.
With a bit of luck, you'll hear it over in the 'States. Theoretical 117dB output. Not bad for a teenager.

Edit - there was me thinking 8 M8 T-nuts are enough for a 12" driver. Clearly, I've been over-doing things...

Nice score Gary! Pop them on top of the subs you have already and let us know.

You can see a similar rig here:
Big OB fun. Come hear!

Hi Pano,

I got the speakers and amp/tuner off Craigslist and the Advent boxes from a buddy. The same buddy who came to my rescue when I saw the ad for the drivers but was already 3 beer into my evening and needed someone to drive. The fellow they came from seems like one of us. I asked him to join us here at diyAudio. He has many systems and these are just the things he probably will never use. Like us, he tends to find goodies here there and everywhere and just keeps the drivers. Over the years he has accumulated many and I guess now it's time to downsize a bit. He likes selling these things cheap to see the expression on peoples faces. I'm glad he didn't want to see what I had done to my underwear. Literally cookie jar money for the whole lot.
