Re: [rivercityaudiosociety] Re: Magnepan 3.6R speakers
- This really puts things into perspective. The speakers are cool but they are just stuff. The time with your Dad is invaluable. I envy you so much. My Dad died at 54. I missed so many years of these kinds of talks and just hanging out together. So my friend, talk a lot, listen even more and soak it all in like a sponge. You will be making memories.Luther

Hi Don, thanks for the good wishes on my return trip.! This return trip is another thing I'm looking forward as well. My dad is coming with me on this trip, so we'll have 30+ hours in the course of 3-4 days to do nothing but drive and talk. He's 77 and retired, I'm almost 40 the age when you tend to look at your life and what you want to do with the rest if it, re evaluate priorities, etc so we'll have lots to talk about! It will be fun!
- That sounds great Ulises. I would love to hear the Genesis speakers; my first real hi fi speakers were Infinity from Arnie Nudell before he sold the company and they went downhill. I think they were the IRS with EMIT tweeters and actually looked a lot like my Sonus Faber except they had a warm oak finish. I wish I still had them! Let me know when you decide about january and I will make the announcements.....Bob
- If anyone is interested in a pair of Infinity Delta Speakers with the outboard crossover, e-mail me.

> Hi Steven, the Genesis weight 630 lb for both speakers, so around 315 lb each. The subwoofer amplifier weights another 70 lb. They're still very heavy and I'm going to need one of Bob's assistants to help me move them. All the other speakers are light in comparison.
- Hi Luther, Thanks for the great advice, I will definitely take advantage and enjoy these days with my dad, it will be a pretty cool adventure!
- Ulises,Remember when transporting the Maggies to put in place the ribbon protectorThe ribbon can be easily broken when moving without the protector in placeHave funAlan
- Hi Alan, I got the Maggies at home. I can't wait to hear them, but we couldn't find the x-overs ay Bob's house. I searched eBay for a replacement and couldn't find anything. I got Dave's custom x overs for Maggies, but I don't know if they're high pass filters, or low pass, I hooked it up to a different speaker and couldn't tell what it does. Any advice or tips will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
The MG3.6 external crossover box contains only part of the speaker's total crossover circuit. If you can't find the original it would be very easy to replicate it. You could even use some better quality parts, although that isn't necessary. Here's a link to a color coded schematic that indicates which elements are in the box versus permanently installed in the speaker itself: http://www.integracoustics.com/MUG/MUG/tweaks/mag3.6xover.html

- Ulises,The custom xovers might just be the same as the regular xovers but with better parts.Do you know if they were used with the maggies in a passive mode or were they part ofa bi-amp electronic setup. If you go to the planer section of Audio Asylum and do a search you should be able to find a schematicof what is in the external box. If I get some time I will try to hunt this downAlan
