    • Went with neither. Wanted to try the Klipsch Heritage stuff out so listened to some Cornwalls and then some Heresy II’s. Came home with the Heresy II’s    I don’t know if I am correct but it appears that the soundstage is much improved. I am running the Heresy’s with 2 subs.
    • Coytee,  I think you and I may be long lost brothers. My Mother used to say the same thing to me. 
    • Something light and relaxing this morning ( my down under time )  This album is from 1975 and I remember the single with a funny name being played on the radio  Anyone remember - Popsicle Toes  Artist - Michael Franks  Title - The Art Of Tea   
    • I DUNNO ABOUT THAT! Having been here for most of almost two decades,  from what I can tell there are a number of FORUM MEMBERS who must have gotten  pretty damned warped in a relatively short time, considering their ages!🤣  It took far longer than that for my own warpage to fully manifest itself!🤪
    • Thanks for all the advice. I'll  post pics when done. I'm in no rush. Winter project.
    • It takes "time" to learn how to Warp properly. Am I funny or what? JJK
    • I've found myself anxiously anticipating each new addition to the Ms. Belle biography of PWK  thread myself!  I never got to meet her, she passed away not very long  (a year or  so, maybe?) before I got back from Italy and started working at Klipsch in July 1976.  PWK had already re-married to Miss Valerie by that time.  But everybody in the plant who DID know Belle was very glad to have known her!  Some were still a bit wary of Ms. Valerie, though!  The PWK biography that Ms.Valerie commissioned makes it look almost like Belle never even existed...and tends to leave out any impact Belle ever really had upon PWK's life and the success of his company, IMO!  What I gleaned from other employees (some of them working there from almost the very beginning) who had known Belle for a number of years, was a MUCH DIFFERENT story than what the book seemed to tell!    What I tend to see in my mind is a very loyal wife who watched her husband start-up a business based upon a hobby, with only a part-time  Army Reserve salary coming in from his side of the household and very little to nothing coming in from the company itself for many of the early years.  Whereas her entire salary as a school teacher was committed to the support of the household.  A spouse like that is a major important part of a man's life story!  PWK was doing very well financially by the time I started working there.  BUT, it had NOT always been that way for the company!   There were times when the company was not even able to pay the employees...that is a fact...and PWK offered them shares in the company instead!  Most took him up on that offer, too!  They had faith in him and the products he designed and they made!  SO there is VERY MUCH missing in the "OFFICIAL" biography, IMHO!   Being a history nut, I desire  to know what is missing!...within reason, that is!  
    • I prefer the KLF30s to CF4 IMHO. I like the detail of having an extra tweeter horn, as well as not having to raise the speaker up to get the big horn firing at ear level.
