Tima, maybe you should try to search for set horns instead of Wilson, might get better results

He's off the grid til Wednesday

There's nothing wrong with the code as best I know as I get the same results as Bonzo
I never said there was. I was hoping to learn what the expected forum response is.

Yes I get results on searching for Wilson on that thread. It is quite straightforward.

On top of the page hit the magnifying glass.

Hit that small wheel on the right so you get the drop down menu.

Put Wilson in the top text box, then select "this thread" instead of everywhere.

You should not have the member box clicked.

You need to do this after clicking on Keith's thread

One browser window open. I followed the instructions to the letter.

Here is the result:

The text in the white space below "Oops! We ran into some says:
The following members could not be found: Wilson.

Edit: the forum response is kinda what might be expected because the simple search input box says: 'Member' in light grey lettering.

Fwiw, the results reported here are the same as I've been reporting all along. Thank you Bonzo, Micro, astrostar for helping.

The admin may have access to logs that give information about the problem.

Tima... You are entering Wilson in the member box.

You have to enter it in the top text box. If you want enter it as soon as the text box appears after you click the magnifying glass.

Well ... I guess that's my stupid. <banging head for not seeing the obvious> That works. Thank you for your patient help.

My suggestion would be for the return message not to say "Oops we have a problem." and respond about the member name. Instead say: "No search term entered."

Technically you are entering a valid search. If you put in the name of an existing member, it would return his posts.

No problem. Helping you search is easier than helping another Wilson owner search amps, one day he will also bang his head for not seeing the obvious

Heh. The Crusade Persists. ;-)

Okay - what speaker made in the US and currently available do you think should replace my Alexia 2s - and that will work well with my Lamm M1.2 monos?.

Those are still hybrids. There you are fine.

If you get to lower power SETs that will be interesting. You will have to audition some to see your balance of nuance, tone, large scale slams. For your music I have no doubt it is SETs and horns, just that there are different types.

It is like a guy new to carts saying which carts. There is more than one good one, but they have a different balance and some people can be turned off but one attribute one component has vs another.

I hope to hear lamm hybrids on three different speakers in a few months

Lamm hybrids stay in the family character. If I changed amps, which I'm not planning to do, I'd look seriously at the 18W ML2.2.

As far as I know this owner is now only looking for cables.

IMHO in order to be of any help in this hobby you have so share some preferences in equipment and music, or have a minimal technical expertise. Unfortunately you do not fulfill none of these conditions.
