    My mother passed away

    Nothing to say that hasn't already been said. No words can replace a loss. I've been reflecting myself lately, as I am now the age my mother was when she passed (51). That was rough. I feel for you.

    Looking to upgrade to horns

    We always had spare bearings on hand because we used acrylic templates for pickup openings and rear control cavities, and a seized bearing would melt them and make a mess... Leave the bearing in oil when not in use; wipe it dry it just before to keep the excess oil off the wood. Run the rpm as...

    Wanted Phase Linear DRS400 (for parts or working)

    If we know the primary and secondary, wouldn’t it be possible to get an off the shelf torroid to replace the original? Maybe some output voltage tweaking with regulators? How “unique” is this transformer?

    PL14_20 RevE6 versus PL14_20 RevG1 Dual Mono?

    The only thing to add is a second amp and run full dual mono. That made a huge improvement for me, plus having the amps right next to each speaker with the shortest possible speaker cable, to help the amp control the cones (increased damping factor). All good! (But I don't use Phase Linear...
