Right then people, as quite a few people suggested a new thread, here we go.

For people who have come here first this topic started on the

-=SHOW OFF YOUR SOUND SYSTEM!!!!=-PART 2 thread

from page 388-394, but I was kinda taking the thread over, so we've moved here for anyone who wants to keep an eye on the project or discuss it.

Big Love to everyone for your interest and kind words (makes a nice change from being grumbled at by the Mrs for always sneaking off to the workshop.)

Awesome work.  The pics are like porn to me.  Big Beautiful Berthas.

Also, I live in the states and have never been anywhere that had those running.  Definitely something special there.

OK now following this tread.  Can’t wait to see all six stacks, so you need to get going (apologies to the family Big smile )

I was just looking at your photos and have to say this is a project of epic proportions. they are without doubt the best photo's of the system that I've seen and truly show the size of the system in all it's glory.
I agree with the others about the original horns but then we're not the people financing the system re-build are we? but it would be nice to see it as originally put together, Not to sure where the people got the original horns being harsh thing from as I use to frequent the MOS (Friday nights) and it always sounded awesome to me (if a bit scary at times)

Your work on this system is truly inspiring and will preserve the history of it and Richard Long so to you sir I tip my hat! without doubt the best thing I've seen of this forum Clap

What do those Levans weigh,and how exactly do you manage to move them around? I do admire your spirit in tackling a project like this,but even moving them about to sand down/repaint must be a nitemare,with serious risk of personal injury or strain?
Be seeing you.

I think they are about 250 kilos each Ian, I know they be a bitch to move but with the right kit not impossible. having somewhere to keep it all would be the real problem imagine how much space six stacks of that would take up?

Got pics all the way through the project chap. I was a bit wary of flooding the forum with my pics, but now I have my own thread and people are asking for them, here ya go..

This is a picture given to me of the system whilst in MoS before I got my sticky mitts on it. You can see how dented the lovely DD horns were.


Jan 2009, removed the top/mid/kick sections from Mos and had to store them in my mates warehouse till I found premises of my own (can't really store this stuff in your garden shed.) I also removed 4x JBL ASH6118 (can see 2 of them on the left, well the back of them) from the bar system. The JBLs were awsome cabs but had to be sold to finance the project.

Apart from the cabs, these amps were all I got.


Jan/Feb 2010 Martin Audio finally finished building the new subs and I could finally take the Levans out.


All the bolts and screws had been painted over for 18 years, so no chance of taking the barn doors off in the club, so we had to take the Levans out with flares attached! 280kg each. I took a crew of 6 guys for the task, no worries.




We just squeezed all 6 levans into a 7.5T lorry, with a few inches still poking out the back, we couldn't even pull the shutter down, we just put the taillift up and that held everything in place


Now with my own storage sorted out we can finally start some work, this was the sorry state of the cabs at the beginning. I had dismantled the Levan horns by now.







Will continue the story in pictures in the next post....
