    Latest Tangband project

    Just wanted to say I heard Tim's speakers at the meet last weekend. They sounded great and would seem to have provide a terrific bang for the buck. Not to mention those little drivers look damn sexy!

    NWWA DIY Audio Meet 2004

    If you think the screws weigh more than the wood, then I'll let you carry them next time ;) Seriously thanks for hosting this at your offices and doing the raffle. Also the presentations on driver design and speaker re-coning were very informative. I had a blast! George

    Gimme your vote -- choose my legs

    I vote for B from an aesthetic perspective. Also you could check out the rubber feet from Acoustic Visions. I got to see some in person today and they look better than I thought they would.

    Sealed Tumults - dual subs

    hello Brian, I too have built some Rhythms and I'm very pleased with the sound. One thing I have noticed is that the bass from these speakers is exactly what I'm looking for in terms of a balance between music and HT. It follows then that my ideal subwoofer would have the same sound as my...

    DIY Amplifier

    Seems that it does Mike, I would take a look at Aspen amplifiers. You can find their forum here: http://www.audiocircle.com/circles/v...b7e8f82386f468 I can not vouch for them directly as I have not yet had time to build my kit, but I have yet to hear any negative comments about them. You might...

    where to find fsv Glue

    I'm glad this topic came up, because I hadn't heard of fsv before. Sounds like a good alternative for contact cement that doesn't require a press. Let us know how your project turns out. George

    Invitation to Seattle area DIYers

    John, Thanks for the pictures. Dust blobs or not, it looks like your speakers turned out great; congrats! I considered adding a plinth as well but since my current couch sits so low I decided against it for now, just a bit of tilt does the trick. Yes I would love to get your opinion as to how...

    Invitation to Seattle area DIYers

    John, Northcreek has been changing their offerings lately as they've started using some tweeters of their own design. I ordered a pair of Rhythm values but George recommended their new D28 tweeter over the 9500 so I went with that. With their new offerings I believe what I ordered would be...

    45 degree 3/4" carbide height chamfer bit

    Hey Dan, I do have access to a table saw but it is very inacurate and our efforts at recalibrating it have always ended in failure. I don't want to risk having the chamfers being uneven on my cabinet so I am going to use a bit for now. Thanks for the tip though, George
