Why is impeding illegal folks from invading the US an issue?

The drivers arrived packaged like a fine watch or camera. (Or at least the way I think such things should be shipped.) The drivers were double boxed over the original package. Impressive.


That's good to hear, Steve. I just got notice that my AMTs should arrive in about five days. Meanwhile, I've been studying the crossover posts here, and reading Nelson Pass' Current Source Crossover Filters http://www.firstwatt.com/pdf/art_cs_xvrs.pdf article, trying to determine what I need, and getting my questions together prior to calling Ed.

Everything seems straightforward, so most of my questions revolve around my main amp, the First Watt F1J. According to Nelson Pass, caps look like inductors, and inductors look like caps to his amp. The "tend to" from the Pass quote below has me wondering if the crossover will be as simple as reversing the 5µF cap and 1mH inductor.

I guess I'll find out soon enough when I talk to Ed.

"It [the F1] does not work well with ordinary passive crossover networks – the
components and their locations tend to be reversed.  It won’t break, but
probably won’t sound good.  If you have an electronic crossover, you’re in
better shape, at least until I can finish a white paper describing passive
crossovers for use with a current source."

Tod, I got it right away, and I laughed.

Happy New Year EVERYBODY.

Glad to hear you got it, and were amused, Steve. Going for the laugh sometimes gets my ass in trouble. I spent so much time in the corner in grade school that my forehead grew into a wedge, but apparently I haven't learned a damn thing.

Pastides USC President for a little while longer, needs to have Ray Tanner and Will Muschamp in his office first thing Monday morning, and explain they need to start earning their more than ample salaries. That game against Akron and yesterday's shutout are a total embarrassment.

Virginia wore them out!  I only watched some of it because it was played in Charlotte and I have family members that went to UVA.

I thought UVA would win, but 28-0... ouch.  Cry

Clemson put the leprechauns in their overrated cage and Alabama rules once again.  It's really good to live in the southeast.

And then there's basketball, oh my.  Grin

Straight from the manufacturer.  Retailers are still selling them for list price.  Here's where they are:

https://essspeakers.store/collections/heil-amt

Cheap is good.  Grin

edit... ESS is shipping free as well and that's really nice since these weigh quite a bit and the box is large.

Which version do you order there are three listed:

Great Heiled ( appears largest)
Great Heiled II (appears smaller)
Great Heiled III (appears smallest of all)

Thanks John

(including the reminder about your bout with a kidney stone. Ugh!).

I should share less.  The opiates make me free.  Good thing I didn't have the will to post when I was jacked on morphine.  Wink


My stone put me in the worst pain I'd ever been in, and the morphine they gave me at the Emergency Room gave me almost instantaneous relief. Rereading your old post made me get up and drink a big glass of water, 'cause I never want that experience again, so thank you for sharing! The only advice I haven't followed was from the ER doctor, who told me to cut back on coffee. Yeah, right.

But enough about my crap, get some Heils and smile.
