Cabinets are some home built versions of Electrovoice "Regency" enclosures I picked up several years ago. The 15" coax shown is a Stephens Trusonic 206axa. This is a project that should only need some basic refinishing and some assembly.....

Here's a pic of a Stephens P52A driver. Produced before the 206axa, and has a different shape of cone (curvilinear). Both the P52A and 206axa have true multicellular horns, looks like they're made of hand bent/soldered sheet metal, then tar coated. Really nice construction quality on these.

I'm looking through your photobucket pix right now.

First impression: I'm in awe, especially of the big Altec system.

Second impression: I love the pic of the huge horn in the back of the pickup truck. Strikes me as the logical response to "what do you do if the a-h*le in the car next to you with the bumpin' stereo won't turn it down.
(you get in front of them, then BLAST them)

Cal,

Still looking through your pix. Lots of nice stuff there, must sound AWESOME.

What brand/model tweeter is in that coffin shaped speaker? Looks like an inverted dome ?? Focal ?

Hi, thanks for the response. The coffin shape is just the camera angle, they actually have parallel sides. They are my bedroom speakers. They are a bi amped 4 way. The inverted dome came from a set of AGS speakers purchased from the Sally Ann. Make unknown but they say Japan on the back. They are about 25 years old. The mid as you can see is OB and is a holey Coral salvaged from a set of Monarch's and given the planet10 treatment. They are around 35 years old. The mid bass is an MCM purchased from RAW for 5 bucks each. The Tang Band subwoofer and Dayton plate amp came from Parts Express and the passive radiators are from McBride. Two cabinets in one. Here's the back with the same funny camera angle.

Cheers.

Hah, bi-amped system for a bedroom..... you're even sicker than me...

I need some clarification, or definitions.

AGS speakers? Sally Ann? OB? holey Coral? planet10? RAW?

Which Dayton plate amp is that? I try and get over to Parts Express whenever I visit the Dayton, Ohio area. Back in August I picked up a few pairs of these just to play with:

Listening to my Ohm Walsh speakers convinced me that Omni can be a good thing, particularly in a home theatre. I figured the Spherex would be a good approximation of Mirage Omni's , but on the cheap. Likely will end up as computer speakers along with a sub.
