    • @Schu @Chris A  So here's a 'cheapo' test that I did tonight.  I was waltzing by a downstairs bedroom and noticed a coupled of rolled up memory foam mattress pads from my girls beds.  They are the size of a single mattress as we bumped them to fulls recently.  Anyway, my little brain started churning.  The pads are about 1 1/2" thick and pretty dense.    I rolled them out on their sides from just behind the rear of each main, curving through the corner, out to the sides, extending past the front of the mains.  On their sides the pads were just taller than my cabinets from the floor up.  Played a couple of jazz, musical tunes, and what a difference.   The sound was warmer, cleaner, and more 'there'.  Less distractions in the music.  I pulled them down and listened to the same tracks and again a definite difference could be heard, but the wrong way.  Honestly, I wanted to put them back up but I know the wife wouldn't go for the pristine painter's tape/mattress pad install.   So, I suppose in my room some absorption panels are the way to go.  Each room is different obviously, but for me it's a place to start.  All I do know is I'm ordering some soon.
    • Well there ya go! Enjoy and do tell what you hear.
    • It's really great going down nostalgia lane   A lovely album that is part Jazz Fussion and part Progressive Rock   Artist - Ayers Rock Title - Hot Spell - 1980   Thoroughly enjoying this album - think I will spin it again for another listen   FR  
    • We'll have Carl for that, so there will be no need for such sophisticated instrumentation! 
    • Don't know but who is qualified to measure Martinis
      I submit that I can but only if un-buffered, real time, 400K UHD is provided
       
    • I don't know if Erich will sell the flat packs separate from the SEOS kits.  If you can use this precision CNC 3.0 cuft enclosure it can be assembled easily with nothing more than wood glue and masking tape, that's how well they fit together.  This is a DIY kit and are sold for cost or close to cost to support the DIY community. http://www.diysoundgroup.com/waveguide-speaker-kits/fusion-15/sentinel-flat-pack.html  
    • Sorry to hear that.  Now who's gonna measure SPLs and voltage to the speakers?   
    • I had forgotten that I set up some Flickr albums from the 2015 Gathering.  Here are the links:   Names with Faces - Klipsch Gathering 2015 https://www.flickr.com/gp/132760388@N06/81Yg03   Klipsch Gathering 2015 - Photos by Seadog https://www.flickr.com/gp/132760388@N06/nQFEe1

    • @CECAA850 Carl ... i was praying for one of your girls when she was sick -- was it the bride or the one in the blue dress?  And how come her guitar isn’t in the photo? it’s a nice family photo--congrats man.
    • This forum helped nudge me to decide to buy my KP201s last year and it's one of the best audio decisions I've ever made. I use them in 2-channel with a Klipsch Sub 12 (Emotiva A-300 amp and Adcom GTP-500 preamp) for music and video games and they're stellar.   Mine are oak and I wouldn't want to place them outside, but if they have the more rugged commercial cabinets they'd do okay for that. I think you'd like the sound, they're tireless whether pushing huge dB or playing quietly. I'd buy them again right now if I found another good pair nearby.   They might be fussy if you use a home theater receiver, I don't like receivers in general (so I'm biased here) and if there are any gremlins in its sound that'll be all you'll hear. They'll take just about any number of watts as long as they're good watts, though.
