Hey Pi guys,

Been some years. Used to post under Themilford. But the password retrieval function has apparently been disabled... anywho...

I'm going through my piles or parts and unfinished or dismantled projects and found I have two Eminence H290 flares, but they are different. I know it probably don't matter much, but I would like to get a matching pair. One looks a little rougher and is much heavier, als the plastic seems thicker... the finish on the front is a flat/dull texture coat. The other looks newer, is much lighter and thinner and has a glossy texture finish on the front.

Anybody have one or the other for trade? I would love another older heavier one. Either way I would like two matching ones and am happy to swap either to get a closer pair. I can post pics.

If you want, I can reset the password for your old account and then you can login and set it to whatever you want it to be.

As for the radial H290 horns, it sounds to me like you may have gotten them from different batches. They were all pretty much the same, but I did notice over the years that the texture and color would change from time to time. Seems like the mounting plate area was slightly different at one point too.

But it's probably going to be hard to find those old horns. You might check Ebay.

Thanks Wayne. sure, that would be great. let me know what I need to do.

As for the older horn, I figured somebody here might have one left from an unfinished project, like me. doesn't hurt to ask.

FWIW: I have a bunch of NOS Motorola/CTS tweeters from the old Studio 1/2 days... I would be happy to trade a pair of those for a matching H290.

Also, I have a pair of H295s... not sure why I got these, but I have no use for them and it seems Eminence no longer makes them...

I've reset the password for your original "themilford" login and sent instructions via email. https://audioroundtable.com/images/thumbs-up.gif

I kinda like your new login though too. Smile
