Hi Nelson,

If I can figure a way to get the D9e Type II out of their cabinets (they appear to be stuck in the circular inset that supports them), I would gladly bring them to your place and we could install them in your baffle for a listen.

Thanks,

Joe Cohen

That's funny . . . sometimes those guys seem to get maddeningly tight tolerances, and things get stuck. Mr. Teramoto had to trade up to a lower-precision scale because he was becoming too much of a fetishist on getting everything just right out to some silly level of precision. He recently assembled about twenty drivers and was cursing his metal parts fabricator for leaving nearly zero tolerance on the threads, so that his whole body was sore from tightening down threads. That led him to come up with an idea for a tool that will allow him to tighten things down without getting so darn tuckered out.

Good luck getting the drivers out of their circular ***-basket.

Don't think so... I've driven the Elise in the UK with the Rover powerplant (to the Lotus factory in Hethel for a private tour no less... lucky me) and I've driven the Toyota/Yamaha US version with some well done upgrades (my buddy's daily ride). while it's a great car... I'd never give up the Esprit V8 for one plain and simple. A well sorted Esprit is a great driver's car... for me, even moreso than the Elise... for track day, well... I'd probably pick an Elise, preferably with another 50+HP.

Regards, KM

That sounds great (pun), but wait until I get some newer baffles built,
as I want to try some larger ones with better woofers.

Plus my wife will give me a bad look if I don't clean up the listening room first.

In the meantime, I do believe I'll be in your neighborhood in about
two weeks or so...

Larger baffles...I guess that taller and narrower may be more WAF preferred over wider and shorter ones. What about the baffle like Jamo's R909, with two 15" woofers, and a D9e Type II Feastrex on top?

Hopefully the kitchen table will be free of active crossover parts too!

My own thought is a little different. Among the baffles awaiting test
are an "MTM" arrangement, with the FR nestled between two 15"
drivers. It's a big baffle.

So many toys, so little time.
