    Once John get's completely set up in his new shop, it should really start kickin'. Has excellent bang-for-the-buck values.

    I'm looking into building a nice pair of sealed 2-way speakers for my grandparents with the Stryke 7" glass-fiber midbass and a SA-RTW2 ribbon tweeter for coolness factor. It will be cool because both drivers will be yellow, and the enclosure is going to be glossy black with a black grille so you can see the yellow behind the grille. My grandparents had a pair of old Rectilinears that are starting to noticeably show their age. The Strykes should sound worlds better with the reciever's Loudness control switched on.

    What do people here think of the Stryke 7" midbasses as far as bass extension and sound quality?

    Rory,
    I'll L.Y.K. I just ordered 8 of those and 5 SA-TW1 tweeters. I'm designing a super duper 5.1 budget system. The SA-RTW2 ribbon tweeter was what I wanted to use but due to $$$ it was out of the question. That and the CTC distance would be too great for my MTM mains & center. It would work fine for a bookshelf TM though. I plan to do a BIG web page for this project as well as my sub. If you wan't me to send you full specs & plans now, email me & I will send it to you [​IMG]
    I am a little pee'd though.....Online shipping didn't get my complete order correct & I have not heard from John about it since Friday. I'll call or email him AGAIN tomorrow.
     
  6. Chris,
    John is often (I know he is now) very busy. He gets tons of emails and it takes him a while to get through them. Your best bet is to call him. That is what most people do if they want a quick responce.

    I'm not real worried. I'm was just used to the quick responses I was getting from him for the first week or so of emails. I'll give him a buzz.

    Hey Jeff Rosz,
    I'm starting to build my D.I.Y. web page now. I don't have any pics of the parts b/c they haven't arrived yet but I will try to get as much done as poss before hand that way I can just plug it all together later. It will be similar to Pat Sun's page with pics, tips, and instructions on building my sub and speakers as well as other projects. I will send you over some stuff now if you wan't. Same for you Jim Peitersen [​IMG]
    Still no word from Stryke on my order.........[​IMG]
     
  10. Here is something from an email on 6/12. I don't think this uses the improved underhung motor or now. Perhaps they were concieved before it. Anyways, here is something that will eventually rear its beastie head.

    Not to get too off subject but has anyone got an email from John or spoke to him recently? I've emailed him several times at both addresses as well as called the shop and his cell. Both times leaving messages and still nothing ............

    Talked to John today. My stuff got out Tuesday so nothing but the PE & Zaltron order to play with this weekend. I can build my xovers & finish my sub at least. He is super busy & about 100 emails behind if anyone dropped him a line. So, no worries [​IMG] I did get him to BS a bit about his new TC subs. They sound F'n great. He also has some full range speakers in the mix that should be coming soon. Lots of R&D and prototypes, $ going out, not in. If the subs are as good as he says they are that will surely change. I'll get busy on my DIY page this weekend for all who are interested.
