    5.1.2 Speaker Placement with sofa against wall

    I'm with Shiva, I like option 2 also, they're closer to your seating position. You might trying placing the sub in the corner, see if that makes a difference.

    Moody Blues Days of Future Passed.....Live

    Now that's cool! Saw them four times but that was a long time ago. So are they borrowing orchestras as they go? I seem to recall that "the London Symphony Orchestra" on the album never really existed.

    Forte II - trouble taming brightness

    I was told the same thing about resistors which is why the stock ones are still there. But I do trust Deans opinion. Mark

    Forte II - trouble taming brightness

    So my expert audiophile engineer description is they just sounded better, ha. Smoother and more enjoyable. Those caps have nearly 30 years on them and they were junk to begin with. I was reminded that I did some of Moray’s mods with the dynamat on the baskets and horns, a bit of poly fil and I used new gasket material on all speakers and passive. I had no idea those quicksilvers had that type of power. I actually had an amp with kt88 tubes at 60 watts a channel, crazy thing is I considered it bright with my chorus ii which have the same squakers and tweets as the forte ii. Enjoyed an el34 amp BUT love my el84 amps, low power warm and sweet. Mark

    Thread CRAPPING Honey Pot

    Life is truly scary.... Perhaps in the holder of the mind, what is scary?
  15. Haha ... blame any "bad" sound on the kid's toys
  16. I like option 2, you will have more envelopment from the surround field, with them closer to your sitting position.

    Moody Blues Days of Future Passed.....Live

    Watched mine several times. Saw this tour while visiting my son. Great show and great venue at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA.
  18. I have a 21 x 14 room with sofa against the wall. A Samsung mu8000 65 on the other side of the wall. Speakers: Klipsch: RF-62, RC-52, RS-42 for 5.1 SVS Prime Elevation for the 2 ceiling speakers. I have hard time decide where to put the surround speakers. They are bipole speakers, so they can be placed directly towards the seating area without creating a hot spot. In the attachment, I marked their location as option 1 and option 2. I am trying to get some opinion from someone who experienced this problem before.

    Want to mod Heresy 3 - need information

    I don't believe there is any real problem with cabinet construction I think rather this was/is simply a case where the application of adhesive was not being watched properly and some got built with little to in some cases close to no adhesive in all the joints. I can see this happening unfortunate but worth your time to check. The brace work I did eliminates this as a problem both from a structural and air tight point of view. It never hurts to check which is why I mention this.

    Forte II - trouble taming brightness

    would be a plan to remove all your drivers and stick a few flat tooth picks intro each hole along with a good daub of whit wood glue, trim the tooth picks sticking out of each hole and re install your drivers snug them and later after an hour snug the screws again. This will tighten up all the screws. Would also be a good plan to install fresh closed cell foam gasket material but not 100% necessary but you have to know after decades the gaskets in there are all flat by now. While you have the drivers out you might also plug the holes inside of the cabinet where the grill studs mount to make sure they don't leak use a caulking any kind will do just fill the holes and you will have plugged pretty much any leakage there is. This will have a positive impact.

    Also I agree with others that spoke of the top mounted fan. Well spent $100 that gives you flexibility on gear placement.
  26. Adding an inductor will come later, if at all, as I will be experimenting heavily with that portion by Janauary. It's an incremental modification either way, so just do all the other stuff in the meantime. Keeping the midrange as is with new caps has worked so far, so it's all about the tweeters, either one will do. 10% on caps is good enough and should be done first, since those old cans are crap by now. Just changing the caps will "lift the veils" from the female vocals and you will be able to tell whether guitars are steel or nylon strings again. Get the Kappalite 3012 HO, the tweeters, the woofers and the port. If you can't get the ones from parts express, any 4" Inner Diameter pipe cut 4" deep will do if Parts Express won't ship to Canada. I will talk to DaveA about shipping to you, since I have done all the curves for him, but I can't promise anything on the MAHLs until then.
