Randy,
I have Acrobat Reader 3.01. I even shut off my firewall and virus scan. No luck. All I get is a blank white page even after a ten minute wait. There is no address in the address bar.

It looks as though Steve used Acrobat Distiller 5.0 to create it, so I believe you'll need Acrobat Reader 5.0 to view it.  

Peace,
MikeS

I have the same experiences with music.  I don't own any true audiophile audio systems but there are times when I am listening to the right music at the right time and I am in the right spot between my speakers that the effect of the music on me is just erie.  I currently am using a pair of old mid-field monitors in the near-field for production and just plain listening and I have had a few times where I actualy get goosebumps because of the music and how it sounds to be all aound me.  Sometimes I wonder exactly what is more important(at least to me) when it comes to listening to music.  Is it the soundstage being realistic and not just plain flat?  Is it a truly flat frequency response from 20-20k?  Or is it something else.  I hope to one day have enough money to try owning my own tube amps and possible the RL-2's and mate them with a nice sub in hopes that I can at least get the whole range from 20-20k and have a good soundstage.  I have a feeling that is what my ears are looking for.

Dave and Mike,

Acrobat Reader 4.0 will open it ..... but, you might as well download the newest one while you're at it ..... Grin

Something else you might try is downloading the actual .pdf file to your hard drive and opening it from there.

Right click on the link that Steve provided and "Save target as ....."

Sometimes, .pdf files do not work very well across the internet ..... Tongue

Regards,

Randy

Downloaded the newest Acrobat Reader and this time it worked. Guess I need to update my programs more often.

My copy of the plans are already at my buddy's shop, and he is figuring materials and costs for me. By the way, that means all the speakers on my web site EXCEPT the L-1590's are up for sale to finance this project... My HWK-15 doesn't go either.. Thank You Steve, i once again, bow to the east, towards the "Musical Mecca" in IL.

Steve, can you tell us anything about optional brace "E"?  
Under what circumstances would I want to install them or not?
Is it 3/4" thickness like most of the other braces, or 1-1/2" like brace "D"?
And finally, do I put them against the side walls or out in the middle like brace "D" so as to form a kind of grill teeth in the horn mouth?  
Thank You

Steve, Thanks for sharing your redrawn imperial. You just have to love the horns and some of the things they can do. I've been working on some duel 10" cabinets lately. Maybe the rear load style of the imperial in a downsized manner might sound good too.

Mike,  We use the aluminum throats for a few reasons. I did not want the driver mounting directly to the wood of the horn. The begining section of the horn, or throat, can impart a lot of changes to the overall horn. This way the throat can be changed around and the mouth of the horn stays the same. you could have one horn with a few different throats and have all kinds of different sounds and be better suited for different drivers of choice.  So to answer your question, The aluminum throats are the means we use to couple two components and offer a variable too. Straight side throats had a lot more peaking issues along with more throat distortion.  The conical shape sounds, and measures better.

ANYBODY in Los Angeles area
that is planning on building a pair of the IMPERIALS?

I would like to team up with someone if possible,
(Build two pairs at the same time).

I personally know 3 Cabinet makers that have nice
shops that will let Me use the shop & equipment.
one of the shops has two spray booths if You want
to Laquer the Cabs. Also cheap prices on the Lumber.
email Me if interested.

RGeorge,

I hear You, They're monsters.

I will be using them in My Shop (plenty of room)1300 sq ft.

and in about two years I will be moving them into
My new Listening room that I am going to build (plenty
of room Grin)   approx. 300sq ft.

It's not that I don't love My 4" horns, It's just with the
imperials, You can play any type of music at loud levels.

...with only 1.8 watts!!  And, better yet, when you are playing, you are ALWAYS in the lowest reaches of the first watt - the death zone for most SS gear, but that is where the Zen really breathes.

You said it. The first watt is pure gold, with these
super efficient badboys You will have major headroom
even with the little Zen.

I wish there was  a print on the high frequency
Horn lens.  But then it probably isn't that critical
as to the actual dimensions of the lens. just looking
at the photo of it can give a pretty good indication
as to the size.
