HEY SAM!!

I am using a pair of 8" Peerless drives in a 6.5 feet tall, floor standing two way "three-quarter-wave-tube" arrangement , ALL DIY'd from the hand made and soldered crossovers to the cabinet built out of 18" MDF with vineer and full length brushed aluminium fronts, 22" Granite base, with four adjustable brass spikes down to the four pairs of Brass Dimes with dimples for these spikes to rest on - even had a Trumpet/Horn etched in the granite base!! - Howzzat??

I have been rather lost for sometime - but reading this gave me the impetus to perhaps now make a set of rears using these 6.5 inchers! - that leaves only centre and viola I'd have upgraded my "Stereo" to a Home thratre!!

Now you tell me if I qualify!!

EDIT: ... all those enticements hold true - of fiery crab curry and assorted culliniary delights served by appropriately dressed damels with vicarious and varying skills/appetite - while you float on down the backwaters of Kerala, twinkinkling stars and failing twilight for company - we'll throw in a full moon and couple of owls as well for good effect !( - both willing!!)

they are not shielded so they might distort your TV tube if placed close.

Mud pots can make nice boxes too. damp them well though.

Wow! of course you qualify. One pair is yours! How will you pick them up.

People - I really do love the drinks and food I'm gonna get, but remember, You need to show us what you did and how you did it.

hey Sam,

Can i have one pair Please.

What will I do with them ? - Use them as Woofers in my Car - i have no idea about ICE so really have no clue what else I can do !!

Reason why i deserve them - Easy to pick them up as i can drop at your office and collect them

Cant drain you in beer but what about a Bhel - Mitha??

didnt knew that !!!!
thank you navin.

but the last time when we did such a thing, we didnt find a place near the TV and also didnt want them near the TV for the appearance point of view, we placed them close to the roof that to on the adjacent wall, so there was atleast 10 feet away from the TV.

didnt understand what you meant to say. did you mean dampen them?? how to do that??. when you say about damping the pots, i can only think about putting sand around the base of the pots and wet the sand, thats what we did last time, but that we did so as to give support to the pots so that they dont fall down. or something like wrap a peice of cloth and wet the cloth. But either of the cases, we need to add water to keep them wet!!!.

@navin and sam,
can four such 6.5'' subs in a custom enclosure produce better sound than one JBL bass tube in a verna. May be i should buy two 4 channel amps, one for the subs and the other for the front and rear speakers (yet to decide on components or co-axials).

Sorry Sam... I have firewall issues at work and the connectivity issues at my new home persist!... tech issues and the guy says it'll take another week for them to sort it out (its a private colony and they have a private exchange - no other option at the moment) .

My pics will be up - that is a PROMISE!!

More than enough. At that size you could even go push-pull or MTM or MMT (you need 4 woofers for any of these).
