    • I think you need some stands for those speakers. Stand up and listen to your speakers, and then sit down again and you'll probably hear why.
    • Thank You very much to Mr. Crites!  I modified the crossovers as he suggested and purchased the titanium diaphragm upgrades and installed them. These little babies sound great on my back porch. I mounted them with OmniMounts and angled them down and inward perfectly. The high frequency horn is balanced with the bass driver and very crisp. I do have a BBE processor helping them out as the feed is from Sirius/XM off my theater receiver. I'm going to swap out that processor for another I own that has the subharmonic synthesizer to help round out the bottom end. These speakers play at background levels 95% of the time. Thanks again to Mr. Crites for his thoughts and immense wisdom.  
    • The man cave is one my favorite rooms for our grandchild.  I even have a train down here for her play with.  Surprisingly, she has never messed with the audio gear other than touching the giant woofers.
    •   I used one of those Dynaco ST400 amps to power 4 Speakerlab SKhorns in a mobile DJ biz in the mid 70s.  With two 8 ohm SKs in parallel per channel the Dynaco put out 300 watts per channel.  I fried the occasional T35 voice coil, replacements were readily available from EV.
    • Just saw this. Carl my friend, so sorry to hear of Amy’s situation. I’m not one that wants to be cheered up when i’m going through something that sucks, so i won’t try to cheer you up. Just know that if i wasn’t a 1000 miles away (or however far that country that you live in is from Los Angeles) I’d be there for your family...and the Rottie. I’ll keep praying for you all...in God’s hands is the best place to be. Best Regards always. p.s. i think my first conversation with you was when you were shopping for a guitar for your daughter.  Was this daughter Amy?
    •   The idea with biwiring is to connect the amplifier to the filter halves separately to prevent intermodulation, generated by one driver, to influence the other driver. http://www.sonicdesign.se/biwire.html   They are saying filter halves.  Technically a passive XO does not have filter.  Capacitor, resistors can behave has a filter along with the inductors.  Either way you look at it, a large gauge wire will accomplished the same thing as bi-wiring.  Many of us have tried it, including me.  I eventually switched to a heavier gauge wire.  Give it a try and come back in a few weeks and report your anecdotal account to go along with the many other reports that can't be show to be statically significant from a scientific standpoint.   Bi-wiring is relatively cheap and technically easy to do, it is worth a try.  Nobody can tell you what you hear or don't hear for the most part.
    • Hi, I recently purchased a pair of Klipschorns and have spent an embarrassing amount of time troubleshooting and restoring these old gals. I have hit a road block with one of the woofers. Cosmetically it's perfect. I see no cracking or deteriation. It produces sound, but very, very quietly and distorts. Both woofers measure 4ohm. Help. Please. Sanity receding.  Thanks
    • The seller upgraded the tweeters since one was bad Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • Thats all that is needed... even a tweeter upgrade is questionable.
