    • You assume that is the case with your bass bin/subwoofer vs. the K-402-MEH.  I think you've missed something (once again) about MEHs.  A hint: look at the horn/driver loading differences via boundary loading.  If your bass bins/subwoofers have similar sized horn termination geometries, then I would still like to see the data for my needs--which is not a lot to ask considering the effort I've spent above, and a request that is obviously within your abilities based on your posted measurements above.   You say you're puzzled by the few rebuttals and requests for data I made on your opinions.  I can assure you that personal opinions-as-fact statements in this thread that I can't agree with aren't going to "slide by".  In case you haven't noticed, I've actually put a bit of effort into the subject over the past few years.  Because others here (clearly observable from the comments above) also read these statements, if I don't take exception to them, some readers might conclude that I agree with them.  (I don't, at least the ones that I've commented on.) I've made measurements that helps me to request some of that data based on your particular statements I've taken exception to. Other requests for data are real (e.g., your subwoofer's distortion measurements vs. your K-402-MEH), I actually need that data.  If you prove your point with measurements, I will acknowledge it.  I don't believe they are unreasonable.   As a side note, you've also actually pushed me into questioning some of your statements--as if it's your right to do so with impunity, which I personally don't understand after providing the data and information that I have to this thread.  Have I done something to offend you?   If you would like to start your own thread, you're perfectly able to do that.  I only ask that you don't say the things I have taken exception to (above) in this particular thread without backing them up with something that's more than opinion (yours or any others).  That's it.  Everyone is entitled to their opinions.  Not trying to mute the conversation entirely, just keep it a it more fact-based than opinion-based in this particular thread (as I believe that I have mostly done, above).   Chris
    • Roon requires a computer...I was under the impression that media players are basically a computer too. What is the difference besides price, and shielding for noise? I run a i7 NUC for Roon which is still a computer.  Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk      
    • I didn't notice, but you are right.  Move squawker from 2 to 1, tweeter from 3 to 2.  That will attenuate both by an extra 3db.
    • 34dB of gain? Holy Guacamole. Thats 50x so 4v nominal input would be 200V which would be 5000W into 8 ohms(if that were possible) And little old me, I can't stay in my room for more than 5 minutes with 10watts going into my bass bins and some fraction thereof into the 402s.
    • This is the dilemma I am facing. It's even worse in Canada because shipping, duties and taxes totals around $40 USD per driver. So each driver would cost me $80-$100 USD all in.   As for the Heresy comparison, here is an all-Canadian analysis if you are interested: H1's go for around $600 USD here and maybe $750 for the H2's. After shipping (I live on an island) I'm looking at a total price of $700 - $850 USD for a pair of Heresy's.    When you say bullet proof, are the Heresy's known to be better built or ...?   
    • When I A/B'd the CWI to the CWIII, I preferred the CWI for the overall presentation, likely due to the larger midrange horn and lower crossover point of the CWI.   The CWIII does offer some improvement in the low end.   The tweeter in the CWIII may sound more refined to you (smoother, extended highs maybe?) than the CWI tweeter (K77).  But there are drop-in replacement tweeters if that is a problem.  Except for recapping the crossovers, dampening the mid horns, and adding a 9kZ frequency trap, my CWI's are stock and I think they sound fine.
    • @dwilawyer   Pardon the shameless plug for my own for sale thread, but this: https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/196074-orchard-audio-pecanpi-all-in-one-streamerdac/   Is a really nice all in one solution that gets you a Pi in a quality case, a linear power supply and XLR/RCA output, dual mono Burr Brown flagship DAC chips. This is the type of thing you want in your Living Room, Kitchen, Bedroom where as the above post is a little more budget friendly for outdoor music. You can even do WiFi with a USB dongle. Phone/Tablet to manage the music, the PecanPi to process it and outputs to your existing AVR, Preamp, etc., obviously that feeds your amp/speakers...but you already knew that.
