Unless you're alluding to another aspect of "DIY" , this is not quite so easy for those of us 35+yrs on in a monogamous relationship - even if the Doctor prescribes the right little blue pills

oh, you meant Dr Amar?

sorry

Something like a "Sweet 60"

per side....

Some guy at MIT around 1970 did that with about 100 smaller full ranges per side in a whole 4x8 sheet of plywood. It did "hoot".

I recently purchased some used 901/VI rather cheaply, I've been curious about all the hub-bub over the years. I have one of the 901 drivers in my 1989 Cadillac doors, Delco/Bose enclosure. It has always sounded awesome so I kept them and replaced everything else.

I found this site looking for info on building crossovers so as to improve my 901's. I'm gonna experiment with adding a tweeter and subwoofer.

I think the 901's will work where my (not yet built) Aiko's won't. Loud party music, rock, techno etc. The sub will be used with either. The full surround sound mess the 901's are known for is nice for some music, aggravating for others.

new Porsche...

don't you mean another new Porsche?

if any of us posting here could afford either option, it'd probably be papa

Geez Chris, what's all this about? I'm just talking about having a few fasteners around for when you might need them.

Sheesh!

Yeah, thanks for that.
I got them cheap to begin with so spending some cash wasn't a problem, but after thinking about it for a while, might be better to start on another project!!
