    North West Hifi Show (Cranage)

    Sheffield to Cranage.... Thumbing a lift... anyone going to Cranage (either day) from or past Sheffield? I had a knee replacement 3 weeks ago and can't drive for another 3 weeks.

    Wanted IPL TL's

    Excellent. Cash on collection is just fine. Await your pm.

    Wanted IPL TL's

    Here you go. They have vinyl wrap round the sides, one has a patch on the top (last photo). Not for smart living rooms as they are, but they work fine.

    Wanted IPL TL's

    For the S3 pair, £80 as is. I have some of the HiVi midbass drivers that IPL used later on too, if interested as a spare pair of just to get a different presentation. £40 a pair for these. Also have spare tweeters.

    Wanted IPL TL's

    I have a pair of S3's and a pair of S5's. I have way too many speakers so happy to sell either or both. The S5 have carbon fibre bass, dome mid and dome tweeter, while the S3 have Ivan's bespoke metal cone mid-bass and cone tweeters. So, both quite old versions. Both finished in black, functional rather than good looking.

    I suspect that they come from local releases / escapes

    Help me! Sd Acoustics SD1

    I guess that, as the OP is listing the driver types, he has got them. Mine have different mid and bass units, and SD was known to use different drivers from time to time. I have a full set of (used) replacements if anyone needs them. I have PM'd the OP with a basic crossover diagram, which came from here: https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/multi-way/137210-sd-1-speakers-2.html

    Help me! Sd Acoustics SD1

    I've got a crossover circuit for a slightly different version, but I think that my ones (with 2x8in bass drivers and Dynaudio mids) have much the same circuit. I'll dig it out and PM you a copy.
