There are 2 Changs for the FE127 (undrawn & unnamed at the moment -- loninappleton do you have children?). I have to get some EnABLing done right now, but i'll see if i can get at least 1st pass on them done... they are based on the Classic GR Fonken & Floorstander Fonken (the later will be quite Needle or Zigmahornet in aspect)

I have never been married and have no children.

No rush on getting out the Chang for 127e.

One idea I was playing with was being able to sample both with one build. I have my long sideboards cut and I've considered the possibility of making 2 different internal treatments. Chang is a BR box with narrow port where the box is the Compression Chamber and rear horn is a humoungus port. The Harvey's more nuanced CC would give a different effect. If I could do the back, top bottom and internals the same width, I could slap on the other side panel and be able to test the 2 styles with dry clamping.


In the mean time I'm going to finish off another set of high resistance speaker cable to see how it works with the GM MLTL.

Default kids names

I've got two boys that are real charmers and with names that might and an 'interesting' flare to the Chang line:

Oliver aka "Ollie"
Gabriel aka "Gabby"



I could post pictures if you wanted to test if the personality fit.

I like those. Scott? Pictures, sure

We usually like to alternate female/male names as we go alomg... but it isn't a rigid rule... will you build a Chang if we name it after your offspring...

"Dear, those are so BIG!!"

"But they are named after the kid..."

"Well OK then."

I have a pair of FE127s that need a home so absolutely. I will build them. I'll see if I can shrink some photos for upload.

Also, Gabby Gabriel(le), could go either way on the gender thing, so maybe your tradition is intact.





Ryan

See if this attaching thingy works ...

Default The boys

My master anglers ... Gabby (l) and Ollie (r) with a pike caught this past summer... whilst visiting their great grandmother in the land of 10,000 lakes.

Ryan

PS. Names or no, I'll probably still build what you guys put together...

Well I didn't actually know where this was going but there is a special youngster for me.

Her name is Brynn Olivia and she is 10 now.

Maybe her mom can shoot me pic to post. Anyway, that's the only name I have to offer.

You have to watch me... sometimes i don't know where i'm going.

Olivia is the female counterpart to Oliver, maybe we can use Gabriel & Olivia for the 2 FE127 Changs.

You'd have to build one, and symmettry would be best filled if you each built a different one (but i'm not going to push that)

I was born and raised in the land of 10,000 lakes, that looks like the last fish I caught. One of my favorite memories is floating down the Apple river. Sorry for being off topic but you guys did crack the door open.
