  • New Rack

    I finally got around to a new rack. I built the old wooden back in 85.
    I bought a VTI BLG503 with an extra shelf. After a temporary setup I was concerned the glass shelving ringing. I knew this might be an issue but I love the way the black glass looks. So I bought some 3/4" thick mdf and made shelving to go under the glass. I sealed the edges, sanded and sanded and painted them black using oil based paint. Now the shelves are dead with no ringing. I also filled the legs with sand and applied green Loctite any loose caps. I added strips of Dynamat to the steel shelf supports.
    The results are outstanding both in looks and acoustically!

    In addition I bought a new 65" Sony for the family and moved the 60" to the cave.
    Check it out!

  • Re: 2.3TL and 1.2TL updates

    When I first got my 2.3TL's this is what I posted.

    "I did some more listening last night. In their stock form I find them sluggish, muffled and veiled. They have nice mids and vocals sound good. Top and bottom end is not extended. I am writing these notes so I can come back to them as the rebuild progresses."

    Then I changed the tweeters to 198's and this is what I posted.

    "I swapped the tweeters to RD0198s. Right out of the box they kill the SL3000s. I did not realize how much of an impact they would have on sluggish bass."

    F1, you were right.
    I thought they were good but now that I am improving sources and treating the room they are beyond my expectations. :)

    The MC metal armor is grounded to the sub-panel but the receptacle box is plastic.
    The MC ground conductor is grounded to the sub-panel and the receptacle.
    I got a lot of good info from the attached White-Paper.

    The goosebumps are back.
    The 2.3TL's are singing. :)

Howdy, Stranger!
