Hey Carpenter,

I figure the off topic is a bit more welcome here. So, my line arrays are 7'6" X 13" X 21" 3/4" MDF all around. 12 6.5" Axon 6s1 woofers with a single Raven 2 in the center. I guess they are a semi-line array, but they are pretty amazing. I've never heard anything that do dynamic swings they do. Unfortunately I don't know how long they will be with me. I have an MTM with 2 PHL 1240's and the Raven 2 stolen from the lines. They simply sound better. The dynamics are not the same, but all the tones seem much closer to the truth. The joy of DIY is finding what will sound better.

F-4 driving high sensitivity PHL Raven MTM is pretty sweet.
I haven't fabricated a line array, though I've often considered the possibility. Do you think it's worth its salt below 500hz. I could place my paper-mache horn in the center of the stack...

For me, the joy of DIY is having the where-with-all to engage and create something wonderful--anything sounds better than nothing...yes?

It's in the current Stereophile Buyer's Guide.

I think they can manage two months.
If we are lucky, maybe we'll get a preamp/buffer/surprise schematic here before May...Or not...

Maybe I missed something somewhere or screwed up my browser (both of which have happened before on more than one occasion) but I can't seem to access www.passlabs.com/np anymore. Did that directory disappear with the coming of the new web site? I just went looking for the updated F4 schematic there. Comments?

What was on that page? I can access Nelson's pages when I delete the np suffix.

Edit: I tried my bookmark that links to the page I think you're referring to, and no, I can't access it either.

It was a directory that Nelson used for publishing all sorts of interesting stuff like historical photos, previews of Firstwatt schematics, etc.

It seems to be history.

Hopefully, you managed to capture the major points of interest while it was available.

As reported recently, that was the folder that got hacked and
brought down our site and email for three days. It was wiped
and currently unavailable.

Thank you Nelson. I had thought it was just the SA4 file that had been the source of the problem.
