Bt-12 speaker tilter.
« on: April 07, 2015, 02:53:16 pm »

Does anyone have a extra pair they would be willing to sell or know of anyone that may have them available? They are out of production at the moment.

Thanks

Best of luck in your search.  I don't think I've ever seen one offered for sale, used, on ebay, the marketplace, or elsewhere...people tend to hang on to these rare and useful items.  BTW - shouldn't this be in the Marketplace as a WTB, rather than LAB Lounge?

I'd like a pair too.  They are supposed to be available again in the fall.  In the mean time, I'll get a pair of these:

I have a pair of these. They are decent but just under the load rating of my SM 80.

What makes the BT-12's better than the K&M's?

They maintain the Center Of Gravity and so keep the load balanced throughout the full range of adjustment.  There's more, but that's the gist.

Thanks Dick - so would the K&M's be risky to use with something like my DSR's?
I do miss the tilting option on these speakers. I used to use it from time to time on the PRX's.

Does anyone here use tilters with the DSR's???

DSR's should be fine, but they will put some torque on the pole going into the sub (if that's how you are using it).




BTW, do a search. Those K&M tilters have been on amazon for 15 bucks each for the longest time. I bought a pair years ago.



These tops are maybe 40-45 pounds. The tilt was about halfway (which would be 7.5 degrees iirc). I didn't want to go much farther because these subs just have a simple steel top hat for the pole. Not super strong. The pole and weight distribution were fine. I was just worried about pulling the pole socket out of the sub....

I have been searching online and I cant find anything less than $56 each for the basic tilter which seems a bit high. However, if I am getting something strong and reliable I don't mind too much.
I am sure I have seen them cheaper than this but I can't find any right now

I'll be using the 20mm threaded pole in the sub and also tripod.  I don't want to put  lot of stress on the threaded sub insert. The stand would be OK - nice and strong with legs wide for stability. I'd also only tilt a small amount - maybe 10 deg max.

There is a Yorkville tilter - very basic, 15 degree tilt only and no adjustment but only $5. I'd like to find something in between $5 and $56. I might get a couple of the cheapies and see how they work.
