JWC DIY Mini Punch Kit From Fast Lane Audio

Here is a cool DIY bass horn project you should check out. The design is from my friend JC but the kit is the brainchild of Fast Lane Audio. They have several horn kits available but this is the latest one. I own several of JC's bass horns and they are all a lot of fun as I expect the minipunch is as well.
Here is a video of the build process JC put together. It is very detailed and he doesn't miss a thing. If you want to pick up a kit from Fast Lane Audio this video is a must watch.  

Some pics of project in progress.
 Fast Lane Audio does great CNC work which makes these projects so easy to put together.

 I can't wait to here this horn project.

Jensen Super Tweeter 1952

The Jensen Super Tweeter was released in 1952. I heard one years ago. It was added as a tweeter in an early pair of mahogany Klipschorns. It was pretty early pair as one still had a K5 mid horn.

I've always had a hard time with rock music. What I should like and respect I don't but I do love Zappa but more than Zappa I love Beefheart and his Magic Band. 

This selection goes out to my friend Terry aka IBSlammin.

Sylvania 212-D

Really BIG triode. As I understand it Western Electric and Sylvania made this beastie. I have not been able to locate the datasheet but it makes a 211 look small.
