Default Elsinore speakers in Melbourne??

Hi
I was wanting to know if anyone in Melbourne has made these and if so would it be possible to have a listen? No rush, just interested to hear what they sound like. Let me know if you have version 1, 2 or 3
Thanks!

if you are after a truly strong alcoholic beverage that tastes great! then you need to try Chamay.

Brewed by Trappist Monks in Chamay, Germany, its authentic traditionally brewed recipe, fermented in the bottle, and packs quite a punch at 9% alc. vol.

costs around $16 aus for a 750mm bottle.

I tell people down here that my definite impression, and not alone, that more Danes drink Tuborg than Carlsberg. Even Tuborg Green is quite nice on the palate. My brother's favourite I think is called Faxe Fad or something? Do you know it. Recall a certain footballer whose nickname was Faxe, John Jensen, because that was his favourite brew?

I tried Carlsberg Master Brew at 10.6% when at the brewery, mate, that is TOO strong, even for me. I hit the limit at 8%.

Come on, who is going to do the DC Bias Tweeter Cap and report back?

Now for the center channel, it sounds different not as good as the fronts, but very close! you said you might have some ideas about crossover changes. What did you have in mind?
But it do sound a lot better than a B&W HTM61

In the center channel cabinet i moved the basport in the middel behind tweeter pointing downward
Excellent. A photo or two would be good to show how you did the centre channel, as well as the others.

Did I post a suggested crossover for the centre channel? If I did, I have forgotten and where?

PS: BTW, how far/long by car car would you be from Hellebaek, if I go visit my sister? No plans yet, but would be nice to meet up some day.

Down to 12V signal the electrostatic microphony phenomenon is mostly strong is mentioned in the video, so better cover more range higher up. It will be interesting to hear for differences with one vs two batteries as an easy test.

OK on that. Below is what I have set up my Elsinores with 18V - the 1K or similar value becomes a necessity to keep the input to the filter at 0V at all times - some amps will not like it if it isn't included:

Have only just done it and had a quick listen. No huge improvement like that of a single battery, but it does seem to help, so it's pobably the way to go.

Sound like you are the man!

If you are using 4.7uF you are currently using two, one per channel. But now you will need eight - have you got that?

If not, as an alternative, go to a Jaycar store and get some 4.7uF/250 MP (metalised polypropolene) - they say they are for crossover in their catalogue if I remember right. They are bright yellow:

http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView...r&form=KEYWORD

They are $9.95 each. I buy them wholesale as I have an account with them, so they are not that expensive to me. If you have one pair already, you only need six. Just make sure that the two channels are the same and the location on one channel matches the other channel.

You can also buy the other bits at the same time:

2 x 100K 1W

2 x 1K 1W

4 x 9V Batteries

4 x Battery Clips to suit battery

That and a handy soldering iron.

I've have the quad capacitors with 9v in place. Left out the 1k resistor with no problems. Needs some time to go back and forth before I say anything but thought it might be a good time to talk about a recent story.

A few weeks ago a work friend told me that he purchased a new LP called Buddy and Julie Miller - Written in chalk.. RTI 180g pressing

Friend complained about some terrible sibilance causing his tweeters to distort and make this record unenjoyable and asked if I could try it on my systems..

I took it home a few days later. It sort of a country thing whith the two singers recorded, one in center and the other slightly off center and more forward in the mix. I immediatley noticed that there was strong energy in part of the treble that made the singers sound sort of intense I guess, and violins on one track also had this character as well..

The whole time I listened to this record on the Elsinore the tweeter never distorted and had no problem dealing with it but I was aware that the mix or pressing or whatever was not quite right..
I listened to the LP right through and enjoyed it..

Now, I play the record on my second system with scanspeak tweeter and there goes the tweeter breaking up on the S's and C's and distorting, off and on when things are pushed..

I bring Lp to work to give it back and He is amazed that I hear this problem on one system and not the other..

My friend wants to give me the Lp and I insist that he try it again because I know he likes the music but I also appreciated it as well but figure maybe second time through he may find that the problem is minimal so He takes it home for another couple of tries..

Anyway, I come into work today and I'm handed the lp Buddy and Julie Miller- Written in chalk.

Joel

RE: DC Bias in Crossovers

Does it matter if the amp is tube or solid state?

No, it should work with any amp. But to be safe, especially with SS, be sure to include that 1K resistor.
