      Hey Ron.

      I bought your Knight 15’s 3 years ago. My Fisher 500C blew a JJ output tube and that may have done some damage. One of them has a crossover issue with very low output to the T35. Bypassed the pot-no change. Put on an 8K hz test tone straight to the T35 and it goes to full volume.

      Any ideas where to start with this? I am not a real solder head as far as caps etc. are concerned.

      Thanks!

Then replace all the caps the size in uf needs to be exzakly the same the voltage the same or higher

      Hey Bryce! All is well over this way. Just the busy season for me so I've been working a lot. Sounds like the move went well.

      Well, looks like that didn't work. Might have something to do with the fact that I let my subscription lapse ;)

      Ron, pics are up on the thread. You should go and check out all of Dad's (and mine) hard work. Too bad the drivers haven't come back from Ohm yet, but the pics are impressive nonetheless. I think that you will like Dad's skills on the point-to-point wiring!

      Hey Ron, do you think that you can take a look at my Ohm Walsh 2 Recap thread in the Speaker forum and see what you think about a color coded (possibly) capacitor in the crossover? I've been having a hard time nailing down what it is used for exactly and what I should replace it with.


      Thanks!

      Hey Denny, Thanks. I worked most of it but have tomorrow off and this upcoming weekend. I think Kate and I are going to be headed up to the lake for the weekend so that will be a nice break.
      I still need to hook up with Lance to grab the fretboard you cut and shaped for me. and he is going to grab the framed Festus LP for the Hilton ;) I let you know how it works out.

      Thanks again,
      Ron

      Thats what i thought so. My speakers being 102db might have too much hum with the A318. I don’t know if the small A205A might deliver good bass though.

      Thanks man.

      Hi Jairo,
      Wow, that was some time ago when I owned the Iconics. I never got a chance to try a Almarro amp with those speakers but have heard a few 205's driving similar speakers including the Altec Model 19. I have also heard the 318 on many occasions and although it's a fabulous amp, might not be be the greatest match for a pair of Iconic's or Valencias I have owned. The 318 (particularly the "A" version) was and is better suited to speakers with sensitivity ratings in the upper 80's or low 90's. Even Allmarro has made claims to that effect. A fellow AK's and personal friend of mine ran a pair of Heathkit A101's with a 318 for some time. I thought they sounded very nice together but gain was very rapid. Both are nice amps but I think I would look to the 205 personally.

      Hello duocanoe

      I was wondering if you finally got the almarro amp for your altec iconics? The reason I’m asking is because I’m in a similar situation as you were when you posted about which almarro would match best for your 100db sensitive speakers.

      I might be picking up a new table from a fellow AK'er down in Florida, a PL-L1000! Thought you might find that interesting as Dad has probably filled your ear about how awesome it it! :D
