he makes omnidirectional speakers himself

How come everytime I find something neat at the thrift store you already have one (or two or ten for that matter) Have you been a Frugal-file (tm) all your life? Can I just shop at your place from now on?

By the way, I'm looking for a set of 16 ohm Corals for a set of speakers I built a month and a half ago. Do you know where I might find them?

How are they coming Doctor Dave?
Also, I contacted the post office and it looks good for getting the tweeters for my newest creation today. Fingers crossed. Will post pics.

Cal

You can shop here, but that doesn't mean stopping the role of "Rescue Ranger" in Surrey
