vinylbrother & brownslane said it well with good advice. And Yes, ignore the haters, unfortunately you will get a lot of Snob comments here. CV's definitely have their purpose & place, nothing like them to rock AC/DC or ZZ Top or for the party where you let the drunk idiot friend play DJ :D ...

I have owned Energy 22's since the mid 80's & still love them. I have bought, sold, compared many other speakers over the years & could always pick out the 22's in blind tests. I even went as far as to collect spare drivers by purchasing pairs with a failed driver which generally sell cheap....

I've purchased from Parts Express a few times & found it easy & hassle free. Shipping was very reasonable for Dayton Ultimax 18's which were big & heavy & included the duty & tax. Unfortunately shipping for flat packs was too high & not worth it. Try to find a local cabinet m...

 Forum: Vintage Audio   Topic: Bridging a pair of Nikko Alpha-220 amps

According to the service manual, the Nikko Alpha 220 is rated at 130 wpc into 4 ohms @ .02% THD, so that would give you 260 watts into 8 ohms bridged, per amp. Probably a little more at clipping.

Nice looking rack set-up 8)

The 12S tweeter is compatible but will sound very different than the other unit. The original CM used Ferrofuid which is probably dried up now, so the 12S unit will sound very "bright" if it still has the original Phenolic Brown diaphram. While the original diaphrams are no longer availabl...

What you are asking for is pretty tame in the Pro Audio world. :mrgreen: I would suggest visiting the Facebook group "Unofficial DIYSoundGroup Enthusiasts" or similar where you will receive more support & expertise than this site.

I would guess it's not a 1979 build. Some of the changes you mention happened around 1982-84 according to some of the different schematics I just reviewed. Silver handles were also the norm on the old units. Your unit does look in great condition though! I would grab the serial # off the bottom &...

I tried to attach a Behringer PDF with RMS info but I guess it's not allowed. PM me with email & I'll send it to you. 3000 = 315/8, 620/4,1040/2 per channel RMS x 2 4-6000 = 315/8, 620/4,1040/2 per channel RMS x 4 6000 = 1100/8, 2200/4 per channel RMS x 2 I am currently running a EP4000 on a sin...

The 6000 is essentially 2 x 3000 in bridged mode, so only 4 ohm minimum. Need to buy another 6000 :twisted: :D

Having an option to search "Sold" or "Completed" listings like on eBay would be very helpful. A Google search with correct terms will sometimes get you these but would be nicer through the CAM site. When marking an item "Sold", CAM prompts me to give the selling price o...

I saw George Thorogood several times in late 80's, early 90's in the Saskatoon Centennial. The one time, Sound was Over-driven & Distorted so bad, worst I've ever heard. Bad sound guy really wrecks the experience & reputation of the artist. Are some of these guys working drunk or just plain ...

I did this for the first time recently & was fairly straight forward, creating an invoice through PayPal. The buyer had no idea about Canadian dollar, so I did a quick conversion & quoted him $US. Ended up shorting myself as PayPal conversion was not as good, so buyer got a good deal, my fau...

JBL has supplied a couple different glues with their Recone kits & there is always lots left over that I've used for other non-JBL work. One was a "Bostic Adhesive 4035" & was the best for spider/surround to basket. It was Brown in colour, so not the best looking for dustcap but I'...

I must say I'm disappointed in the JBL's. Just finished re-foaming them and I can't say I'm impressed. I've never heard JBL's before, and have read all the hype.....They seem rather mixed up in their sound, muddled, not clear or detailed. Awesome Yard Sale score! Right out of college, I worked at a...
