NICE WORK, Kevin!

But then, you've always done NICE WOODWORK, IMO.

Pics of my new speakers

Been doing a ton of work at the spot where we throw our parties and I've got our new speakers done. We had a pair of Klipsch La Scalas and a Yorkville 15" folded-horn sub for our last party and they sounded great but didn't have enough coverage. The horns are just too directional to run the room with only two.

We also had another pair of La Scala woofer sections so I built a set of mids and tweeters to turn them into another pair of speakers. We used Selenium drivers, D250X for the mids, and ST324 for the tweeter. The mids use a new Klipsch K-401 mid horn, which is the replacement part for the original Klipsch 400 mid horn. The crossover was designed and built by Howard Doctor at the Vancouver Audio Speaker Clinic based on the original La Scala xover with modification for the higher-output Selenium drivers.

These are the first speakers I've built and I'm proud to say they sound great; nearly identical to the originals.

Because they're so efficient, all four speakers are run comfortably by a single 280wpc power amp! In this case, an HH V800. Even when the system is pounding, the amp barely registers.

Thanks!

Thanks, guys. The space is great: it's an old, run-down building in a rough neighbourhood. It's run by a nice guy who seems happy to have me show up all the time, hang disco balls and build speakers. We throw parties every month or so and split the profits. I'm pretty stoked to have it as long as it lasts!

The thing that will make your place THE BEST is the fact that it is not just another formulaic room, designed and built according to textbooks. Your room is designed, conceptualized, and built from scratch, BY YOU and YOUR TEAM, as a ONE OF A KIND!

Your audio is a bit different than what everybody else is doing, and your layout is individual, as well as decor, staff and service. You will be a unique and distinct club, and THIS is the strength and beauty of your room. Know it, learn it, and be able to use it well.

To be totally honest, the fact that your not a standard copy the blueprints kind of room, or a corporately owned operation, will allow you to do whatever you want, and theme parties your own ways, will be your GREATEST asset.

Also, I like rooms from the small to medium size. These rooms may not be the largest, but can be the MOST KICK ASS and rooms with an emotional feeling, there are!

I like what I see. AND, add to which, same as before, you have my contact info, when you need some help, have some questions, whatever, YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME!

This is EXACTLY why we're doing it this way. When we started these parties it was because we were so sick of going to shitty nightclubs, paying too much for drinks, paying too much cover, getting bossed around by bouncers, and having no fun.

With these parties we're doing, we charge $5 to get in and we hire the nicest folks we know to work the door. We don't advertise on Facebook at all, just pass it along word-of-mouth so everybody who shows up has heard about it from someone they know personally. This isn't about exclusivity - it's still open to anyone it's designed to foster a feeling of ownership and belonging. We also give everyone these ridiculous fruit-shaped noisemakers at the door just to set the mood and put a smile on their face.

The effect that it has had is incredible, people are smiling and open and talk to each other like friends. We've had between 150-200 people each time, which is just about perfect for the space. I'm so proud of it, they're easily the best thing I've done as a DJ so far.

Anyone who knows their dance-music history will see that we're basically just trying to follow David Mancuso's ethic as closely as possible!

Thanks again, Scott. You've already been a ton of help. I'll definitely be in touch again once we get serious about building our own subs.

That was exactly what I thought looking at the pics.
Keep up the good work.

Looks great Lime Twig...Love your no facebook spam policy After all we know what it's all about at the end of the day..the music.

At the moment you can't get near my turntables....easily hahah



To make things even better I now sprawl out into the next room hahah


Complete with audiophile vintage "chair" speaker stands hahahahahah



This will have to do for a bit...surprisingly the room sounds better than some other better looking rooms I have been in..I still have the B&W's in my other room on proper stands

Some pics of our last event, and our first party with the new speakers I posted before!

We invited our friends' seven-piece live Disco band Saturn this time and another pair of DJs called Love Dancing. The combination worked like a charm, with the DJs playing upstairs and the band playing a set in the middle of the night in the sweaty, nasty basement. Since I played the opening slot I was even able to enjoy myself this time.

It was a little bit too successful and we doubled the number of guests we did last time. Still, it never got uncomfortably packed and the energy was great. Not advertising publicly is pretty good at keeping the number of jerks to a minimum. I think when everyone is one or two degrees removed from each other, they tend to act more respectfully.

That's me playing a few pics down playing our new floating console - which, I'm happy to say, FINALLY solved the skipping problem! It's mounted to the post at right and suspended from the beam above. I've also got a cool new solution to installing a rotary mixer but you can't really see it in the picture. I built a rack-box with a french cleat on the side so you can bring the mixer to the gig and attach it to the console just like a drawer. Pretty stoked about it, i'll post pics soon.

Lots of balloons, lots of tinsel, a couple of disco balls, and jacking Disco music all night long

Wow, these pics posted a couple pages back are pretty interesting.
I think you might want to think about doing some dusting in that
Booth LOL















Seriously though, I’m curious about the system set up. It seems like a lot of
Different cabinets mixed together. You have 3 totally different sub designs with
the scoops, J horns and dual 18 direct radiators, and 2 different mid bass horns…
sealed dual 15 horns and ported single 15 horns.

It would seem from the pics that the system would have issues with cancelations
and phase issues and at the very least muddy bass response due to the difference
in timing from all 3 sub designs. Just curious about what you have done or what
processing your running to correct those issues.
