did a simple job for a friend. he has some extra 50’s Jensen speakers and wanted to use them with this GT40 amp.

he told me GT40 has mono and stereo output mode. so, we decided to leave one of the 6.5″ speakers as it was. then put a long thread 1/4 jack on the other output.

the only place I found for the internal/external switch was the inside of the bass reflex vent on the back. the back panel itself is too thick to attach the switch.

First I thought this was about the Ford GT40 but then I noticed the speaker. 😂 Or is this speaker a limited edition? Anyway good job!

Are those stock speakers 8 ohms each?

on May 29, 2020

yes DCR was 6.5 ohm. it means the stock speakers are 8 ohm. it took more than a year to break in the stock speakers. they sound dull but now they sound not that bad

Hi is the front speaker cover just held on with Velcro like in the picture?  I’m trying to pull it off but it doesn’t want to come loose.

yeah I’ve been there too. the Velcro is damn strong

  • en More than Human

  • The next evolutionary step for humans. Some of us will make the conscious choice to have our bodies integrated into a machine such as a spacecraft or a probe. By integrated I mean encased in a pod permanently connected up tp a “Matrix-like” system where our bodily functions are taken care of by the pod and where the sensors of the ship become our senses and we are the mind and soul of the machine.

    A perfect blend of machine and flesh.

    Over time our bodies would mesh with the pod and we would look very little like a human. To human eyes we would seem grotesque and removal from life support would mean death, So, our bodies remain in a windowless pod greatly shielded from radiation, heat or the effect of gravity or g-forces.

    Then as this hybrid being, we could survive where no human could survive. We could live indefinitely if we slowed the body down while keeping the brain functioning. We could explore the universe this way. We would be more than human.

  • en Got ink?

  • Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard Medical School have teamed to develop a novel tattoo ink that can show your body’s health changes.

    The novel ink consists of biosensors that react to changes in the tissue fluid and make the skin an “interactive display”. So far, researchers have investigated four biosensors that respond to three types of body information, changing their colors.

    As the pH-value increases, the color changes from violet to pink, an increasing sodium content is seen as a bright green under UV light, and blue becomes brown when the glucose level increases.

    This animation from a video of the researchers shows how such a tattoo might look like:

    Especially for diabetics, a tattoo with ink that reacts to an altered glucose level could be useful. They have to prick their finger with a small needle if they want to measure their blood sugar level – usually several times a day. This procedure can be painful in the long run and can lead to small scars.

    the voicing of stock 8″ speaker is quite different to 50’s Oxford 8EV. I guess this stock speaker came from Oxford as well but I could be wrong.

    I replaced the stock 25uf 25v power tube cathode bypass cap to 47uf.

     

    it came with stock Amperex buggle boy which is still alive and kicking and GE 6v6gt. only the rectifier tube has replaced at some point.

     

    stock speaker is on the right side.
