lol you should use an Amiga keyboard, thats what NASA used to use: Video: NASA Morpheus moon lander crashes & explodes on test flight - YouTube

I blame the transition to Windows computers.

smooth compared to earlier cd-horns that have edges in them. and can be crossed pretty low.

So I have 2 other parts of the puzzle to collect before I can use the HF144's.

Unfortunately they dont come in cereal boxes thou finding a minidsp in you cherios would be less of a shock than a 8 cell horn

It will be the end of the month before I can raise the £200 for the horns and then a week or two for the minidsp, unless I can lose that in the monthly shop somehow

I am going to need a preamp at some point too but I guess I can make do with the volume control on the minidsp for a while. I'm heading towards a battery powered B1 with board & jfets from Nelson himself.

I think I can power the minidsp from a battery as well. I wonder what the benefits would be? Other than the obvious - getting it of the crappy circuits in my block and one less mains socket needed!!

If your mains power is as bad as mine, battery power is de-riguer for HIFI/HT apps if you don't have a power conditioner. Worse is all the shielding required in my locale. 'Customer no service' AT&T's crappy DSL modem can't hardly function without shielding and even then, their line filtering leaves something to be desired if I understand correctly how this system works.

This one 8 Cell Multicell Horns for JBL,Beyma,Altec, | eBay

Would value your input on this one GM


As for power, I am thinking of using the ACA (5w class A) for the HF144's and for midbass a Hifimediy T1 (100W into 8ohms ) both of which I can power with SLA's!!

I thought Ideally I could get my entire system from preamp upwards of grid and just have the sources on the mains.

Hmm, larger than an 808, smaller than an 805, so guess it's designed for the 20-20 kHz BW's mean equal power point = ~632 Hz XO.

The throats don't come to as sharp a point as the tin 'can' horns, so HF response won't be quite as smooth/extended, but overall looks like a good bang/buck product.

Sure wish I had the patience! I wonder how much a [12] cell would be to get down to 500 Hz [1205].

is the 632hx the cut off for this multicell so I should crossover higher, say 750hz?

the guy also makes a 15 Cell version. We noted some odd details in the throats pics. From the builder - 'Because of the widening of the of the entrance it keeps all the 15 appertures the same area never thought about it before" & "yes the cells are slightly shorter on the outside banks but the throats make up the differance by being longer on the outside edges"

Just to clarify, do you mean small end or the large end of the cells are not as sharp? The guy seems open to small detail changes
