    • I realize these dampening tweaks are tempting because they are cheap and you can have fun doing them.....but seriously, they aren't worth the time and effort in the KLF-30. The better components mentioned are definite upgrades. No band-aids.

      The downside is that they're not free. Not cheap either but when you figure what you'd pay for a new pair with equal performance....it's totally worth it.

    • I haven't posted any simple, relatively inexpensive, flea power amp circuits in a while and have received a number of requests from DIYers who want to build something new to use with their Klipsch speakers.  So, here it is!   One of the requests was for something using a "less typical" looking output tube and the first one which came to mind is the 6GC5.  It was registered by Sylvania in June, 1960 for use in the audio output stage of TVs.  Although it is a 9 pin miniature type, its very large globe allows for substantial heat dissipation as may be encountered in a small, closed, TV cabinet.  Power output in this circuit is about 1 watt @ 32 Hz which can drive the more efficient Klipsch speakers (especially higher efficiency types like the Heresy, CW, La Scala/Belle, as well as many of the Reference Series) to very loud levels in smaller size rooms.  The pinout of the tube also allows the socket to be wired so that a totally different tube can be used if desired, the 6DB5 (a venerable TV type tube from the same era).  The latter is more conventional looking and gives the user the opportunity to roll either type as the mood dictates! This build features revamped p/s AC wiring to further increase isolation from the signal circuitry, and an externally adjustable "ear bleed" filter to set the high frequency response to taste.  If you haven't experienced a pair of mono amps (as opposed to a stereo amp which shares the p/s rail between both channels) you are in for a treat as crosstalk between the channels is limited to that of the source resulting in a huge sound stage if the recording was done that way. Bottom end response is excellent and should satisfy those who like lots of bass.  The midrange and top end approach that of a good SET (at least in my opinion!).  The amp runs very cool and can be used all day without getting hot or heating the room.  Conservative operating parameters ensure extremely long tube life.   I'll post the schematic separately so it doesn't get lost among pictures.   Maynard

    • What happened Maximus - room just too small?
    • So I'm curious as to what glasses you have used that works either as a prescription or not? I see those cheesy TV infomercial ones and think they are a waste of money. I need something as well my vision has always been bad but is getting worse at night.
    • I will take it.   PM inbound to you.
    • AAs tapped out 6dB down in the midrange instead of the stock 3dB.
    • Looks like the Klipsch P/N is 121501 on that bastard woofer. Someone at klipsch should be able to ID for you. Maybe even Cory @MetropolisLakeOutfitters ? Call Klipsch  1-800-554-7724 and go to the Pro side. I can't remember what option that is.
    • Night isn't a problem for me. I know for sure where all the cars are in front, to the side and in back. The yellow and white guidelines show up well on the road.  There are ample streetlights. However fog and very heavy rain are a problem.There aren't any bikes or pedestrians running at night where I live. They are probably scared to death at night riding. JJK  
    • Did the point to point already, the two speakers are very different in volume at the same power level. I'll do some swaps this weekend. Hopefully the round speaker of unknown age that also does not say K33 anywhere is the culprit. I'll report what I find.
