      DC do you still replace surrounds for Cerwin vega Red Ring 15" woofers? I haven't talked to you in ages. I upgraded big time with income tax refund and purchased NAD pre/amp and amp and went to MC cart for my TT.

      I was going to take them to that shop in Dallas but I remembered you worked on woofers. Let me know if you still do this and a guess on parts and labor if I bring the woofers to you.

      I followed your "franken-speaker on the Micron 421's & wanted to ask if The tweeters that come W/it would be good enough or do I need the tweeters.

      Hi Doug. In post 7 of this thread http://www.audiokarma.org/forums/showthread.php?t=600719 you mention you have the horn mids for EV Maquis speakers. 8HD I think.

      If you still do, I might be interested as I just acquired some really nice walnut cabs, and had the SP12b + T35 + Sentry I crossover (uses the same drivers in a different cab). It would be very nice if I could take them to the next level.

      And just in case... I do have some Jensen RP-201 Mid horns too, but had targeted a different plan for them. But if folks feel strongly about it, I could relegate them to the Marquis. Would need to do some creative x-over work in that case. Whereas the 3 Marquis design work is done, and I would simply follow the EV recipe.

      Hi Doug, (guess here) My name is Paul Davis and thank you so much for letting me take some of your time and hopefully you can help me, I'm the proud owner of a pair of customized Dahlquist DQ-20s and I also run them with a Velodyne ULD 15 series 2 (bet you can tell where I'm going here) I am in dire need of a set of schematics for the ULD as I think it's time to change out the caps in the power supply and this time around I think I will tackle it myself, I sent it back to Velodyne for repair just prior to them stopping support but it's doing that cut out distortion only at loud volumes or when turned up past 1/4 on the unit... it's not dead yet but I don't want to let it self destruct, I looked at sandmans site and was hoping to find something a little more clear or if you are one and the same then I already have them. Thank you again for your time and expertise, Paul Davis (paulyaya) paulyaya@bendcable.com

      Sorry to barge into your inbox, but I'm from Arlington, and another member (Michael/tomlinmgt) suggested I ping you about re-foaming and re-capping a pair of Dahlquist DQ-10's I just picked up.

      I didn't really have a budget for the speakers and certainly don't have the budget for professional work, but on the other hand, I don't have to do them right away and depending on the cost of getting them done I might be better off in the long run by not taking a chance on messing them up with DIY labor.

      Can you tell me what it would run me to have them done in your shop? I need surrounds on the woofers and I'd like to have the crossovers recapped. I don't want to spring for premium hardware this time around... just basic electronics.

      And neither of the piezos are sounding. I jumped them over to the dome tweeters for a moment and both the drivers work, I'm hoping the recap will restore them to working order.

      Thanks,

      Hi,

      I read that one AK member said that you did some upgrades in a pair of AR-9 speakers!

      If that is truth, could you do it again? sell the parts? have any part list?

      PLEASE, let me know!

      Thanks

      Hello,

      I was referred to you by 'tomlinmgt' for help with my RSb's. I'm finding the midrange control is high maintenance. I disassembled them last September and did a thorough cleaning. They sounded fine until recently when they started to be intermittant again. I have to rotate the knob several times to get good contact. I'd like to replace them with something new. Can you suggest a good audio quality pot (or is it an L-pad?)? 5ohm-25W. While I'm in there I may as well replace the tweeter control. Rated at 5 ohm-5W, according to Infinity crossover data sheet.

      The prior owner recapped and refoamed the woofers. I hope this is all I'll need to replace for a good long time.

      Regards,

      Rob
