Being, as I am, a 'vintage' guy, I only listen to 'vintage' music

Hmmm...last I checked they're playing The Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, etc. on the oldies stations...doesn't that count as vintage?

Or if vintage means 'big band and earlier' do you have a recording of 'Sing Sing Sing' by Louie Prima you could crank up to 11 for scientific analysis? Or the 1812 Overture? Or Saint Saens' Organ Symphony?

p.s. Anyone else familiar with the PAWO running Fe127e drivers + subwoofer want to weigh in? Dave? Scott?

I've heard our proto-PAWOs vrs Mileva. I'm waiting to hear Jesse's deluxe ones before i comment on that comparo... add a pair of subs to any FR and high-pass the FR. The higher you cross the more you can rock. Once you start XOing above 150-200 Hz you have to ask why am i building this complex (and big) cab when a simplier one would work better.

(actually you can say this about almost any speaker)

For the record, my modified 40-1197 open-baffle speakers (damar varnish, Planet10 phase plugs, felt on the back of the magnet, damped basket. etc) did pretty darn well (when augmented by a sub crossing at 85Hz) with 'Cultasaurus Erectus' last night. Given that the Fe127e is supposedly much better than the 40-1197, I'm guessing that it should do fine (even though there's a big difference between open baffle speakers and horns / TLs.

Also, in case I haven't thanked you before, Dave, thanks for the phase plugs - great performance-improving tweak! I don't suppose you sell singles, do you? I may need one for a mono setup in my office.

Default I should also mention

...that I've found Blu-Tak to be almost as effective as duct seal (and easier to work with) for damping baskets. It also appears to maintain its elasticity for a longer period of time.

Plus, it's blue!

Sure i'll sell you a single. And with minimal packaging and no insurance i can sneak these out as a letter so that the postage doesn't close to double the cost.

Yep, BT works. As to whether it remains more plastic depends on the brand of duct-seal, I've pulled dusctseal that i 1st applied over 25 years ago and reused it, finding it the same consistency as new stuff.
