Taking a flyer before starting to drill holes for HNs. This is the 2 tweeters, 2 midwoofers model (1984). Thank you!

    I know he had Gimpod's Circuit Boards, but didn't know he had the Larry's Rings.

    If you're in between ring cycles (Der Ring des Nibelungen - lol - for you opera fans...? crickets...) you might consider buying/using hurricane nuts - if you haven't already. Almost the same result, and always available.

    Thanks for the reply Mr Hz. No joy to be found on the ring search. I did install hurricane nuts; they worked out very well. Enjoying the sounds!

    Cheers!

    I must ask, what exactly do Larry’s rings do to improve the sound?
    Not Tom or Trey or Jim just Micah

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    They are a mechanical lock down for the drivers. Just help tighten everything up. Improved coupling to the cabinet improves bass response and overall clarity. Also facilitates future mods without risk of stripping wood/MDF screw holes.

    Lock the speaker driver tighter to the baffle. Screw holes do not wear out.

    Sorry for the late post, Dr. Wu, especially if this has been covered elsewhere...
