Default How are you gonna get that through the door?

I'm building some 15inch Tannoy DC cabs and have been sent some great pics of oversize projects.

Lets collect them here and celebrate the loudspeakers that get us:

1) A knowing look from our better half

2) A shake of the head and the comment 'isn't that a bit big'

3) How are you gonna get that through the door?

Posted on gainclone.com earlier today. I'm not sure whose they are but: a) They look amazing, b) They look amazingly out of context in that delightful living room

Usually I'm all about 'who cares if it sounds good', but this might be a tad over the edge for me

But that's pretty darn impressive nonetheless...

That looks like a WR-650 microwave waveguide flange I work with in there. He he.

Here is my D.I.Y. entry. The back chamber and driver must be removed (bolts), and vaseline applied to get the beast up the stairs. Then there's the issue of the ~350 lbs and gravity.

I'd like to face that horn out the open boot (trunk) of my car and attach the small end to the unmuffled exhaust pipe.

That is one of the more recent iterations of Kevin Brooks system.

Kevin is the US distributor for Ales

Kevin was the Brooks part of _ Sierra Brooks_ with Victor Sierra making up the other part.

A friend who has heard Kevins System says it takes things to a level that you cannot believe existed.

This friend has traveled to all of the VSAC and most of the East Coast Gatherings -

Those Ales drivers run over $100,000 US per channel.

More than a little out of my league.

Regards

Ken l
