Didn't even know that there was a mounting kit.

But I would assume Blue-Tack will keep your Heils pretty good attached to the Horns without 'harming' the Horns.

I have some other speakers in my living room attached to their stands with Blue-Tack and it takes quiet some effort to pull them off.

Has anyone tried the factory mounting kit from ESS to mount the large Heils to the Horns?  It consists of two long bolts, a thin rubber base, bolt caps and a modular hookup block.  It looks intriguing for us that seem to knock those things around (or have pets that do).  The major issue it seems is the bolts use t-nuts that would mount inside the top plate of the Horns and of course, you'd need to keep that compression chamber air tight with silicone.  Other than pulling the fostexes to have access to the inside, it looks simple enough.  I think they cost $25 for each kit.

Maybe a long thin lag bolt could be used to make this process easier where the compression chamber wouldn't be penetrated at all.  The lag bolt (if they could be found) wouldn't be as strong, but may be substantial enough to prevent Fido, Fluffy or a two-legged friend from scooting an AMT to it's death.

Just wondering again...

This may be something for guys looking for some inexpensive sub watts.

Thanks to Helen and Ed.  I had a great time just being there and I'll bet others did as well.  For us old guys, it's going home.  Anyway, the foods and the moods were always fine.  I missed the rocket (go figure) but heard it was excellent.  

John's 45 amp is very, very good.  I'd go a solid grade A although it's a wimpy 45.  Great tube and fine amp.  The impact and tone were wonderful.  

Randy's small OBs are an example of things that shouldn't work.  They can throw holographs at 8'.

Ed's Truth preamp is still topping my list of "things that can't work".  Wink

Howdy everyone,

I rolled into my driveway at 9:00 PM last night after two very fine days at HornFest 2019 …..  Cool

It was so good to see some of the regular attendees ….. but a few were MIA …..   Sad

The "Southern Hospitality" was excellent as usual and Helen was charming as always, putting up with this crazy bunch …..  Grin

Happily, John brought his latest 45 SET amplifier and it did not disappoint ….. SUPERB !!!

The rocket launch (in the rain) was the best ever ….. straight up and nearly out of visual contact.

Thanks again for a great get together,
