"I'd be first in line if Bill were to do that."

No... you would be second cause I would be first!:)

Along w a FC 416.
I only live 2.5hrs from Great Plains Audio. I'd probably be faster than Fedex. :-)

I was down there earlier this year to pick up a bunch of drivers I had Bill juice up for me. New phram's and remags and a couple recone's... a pair of 416's and a pair of 414's. He's a super nice guy, gave me the nickel tour. Saw the room where they make the diaphragms. They were doing some 288 phrams when I was there. Not a super swanky setup... but it does the job.

I wonder if there is even a chance of field coil stuff ever happening at GPA. That would be so cool.

So, for you guys with Altec 614 cabinets... how tall of stands are you using? I'm going to build some very soon similar to Kenrick Sound's and I'm debating. Seems like 8-10" high might be a good point. Thoughts?

I use cinder blocks. :)

Speaking of EBay, there is a pair of 414z/614/32a/806/hiraga speakers listed for local pickup in Tennessee. Price is reasonable.
The crossover designed by Jean Hiraga published in Sound Practices Issue 11 was a lot more complicated than the one pictured in that auction. Besides that Hiraga XO was designed for large format Altec drivers. :chin
