  • Schematic came from Bob, but the design work of the chassis was all mine. The picture is Bob Carver with the nearly completed amplifier.

    Truly a work of art.

    Fooling around last week. Had to take a family photo before a few pairs move along.

    That's a pretty impressive collection you had going on. How many pairs are you down to?

    Thanks, haha. Things have crossed the “obsessive” threshold, so with good intentions of “doing better” I sold the 1C's, 2B's and the 5B's since that photo was taken. However, another pair of 7B’s with Peerless and another pair of 3.1’s somehow ended up in my garage... planning on refurbing them and reselling soon. The 7B's will be getting mahogany veneer and a crossover update. Then I’ll compare them to my modded 7C's and decide which pair gets to stay. My other pair of 7B's will be up for sale soon. Just need new grille cloth and a little TLC. Once all that is done, will put me down to a total of 10 pair of vintage Polks left here. I still am hoping to wrangle myself up the pair of 2.3TL's from Idaho, but I’m afraid my friend @theycallmechad has fallen in love with them. Currently I’m working on a pretty epic subwoofer build (JL 12W7-AE and two 15” PR's in a 4cuft enclosure) that I’ll document in another thread. Then new crossovers for the Talon Khorus pair. Then... It never ends. But it keeps me out of the bar (and my wallet empty...) 🤘🏻🤘🏻

    @JayMX You’re putting a 3 ohm car sub in an enclosure with two fifteens? For home use?? I’d call that epic. My car audio guy has told me in the past not to have different size subs in one enclosure, because of a difference in excursion, and some other potential issues. Says the sound gets muddy.
    I’d love to hear that when done, as I’m a big fan of JL subs.
    Bars empty wallets too. (;
