Many thanks for the great posts and first the most important is the sound and very pleased you are enjoying the new speakers. It's great following the posts and lots of fun going through the drivers. They are similar, but they also have their own sound. The cabinets come out great and Zebrawood with the black bases are a great combo just like Jorgen's speakers. I have installed inserts on the bottom of the main cabinet so you can also have the bases off and still have the tilt.
Sorry about the driver confusion and here is how it ended up.
There is no more DIY drivers so the Model 7A and F and the model 5F are gone in name.
The RS7's are ferrite and the difference is the cone and the surround. Going forward I will call all the 7's RS7's. The alnico's are Model 7A's at the moment. I'm working on changing the cone and surround on them too. My mistake for labeling Jorgen's speakers RS7's, I apologize for that. I will gladly swap your speakers Jorgen when the RS7 A's are done.
Going forward I can have an option on drivers in the 7 Series. I think it will be quite fun and you can driver swap sort of like tube rolling.
When done the drivers are
RS7A for Alnico
RS7F for Ferrite
RS7V for whizzerless Ferrite like pstrisik and beowulf
The Whizzerless is really sweet sounding and vintage sounding. Smooth smooth smooth, not as much top end though. I tried with the Alnico and too rolled off as compared to the Ferrite.
Great to hear about the Dennis Had amp and another great choice out there which is important. They look fantastic too.
Hi Louis, Canada Rob and all
Wrote you an email Louis, but might as well post here aswell, no worries with the labeling, no need to apologize at all. I am a little curious on how the RS7A would be compared to the ones I got. I sort of enjoy having a set of speakers with the "Omega handprints" all over them, so it would be cool to have the most Omega "infected" drivers as well, it makes them even more special in my eyes. That said, the speakers i got now are very very nice in how they sound and I couldnt ask for more, but then, of course if Omega seriously thinks the RS7A is an upgrade, a swap or something would be a cool thing, very nice of you to come with that suggestion/offer. I hope we can talk this through in the email I sent
Another thing; looking at yours Pstrisik i wonder what would happen if I gave my speaker a tilt? Anybody who would like to speculate? I guess it could be done, just for fun, just add something under the forward spike. Dont know if there is a building difference between mine and yours Pstrisik, except for size (how many liters are yours exactly) and the tilt?
I guess and hope you atleast could be known as the driver rolling champ of Alaska...
