    • Elvis has left the building. Thank you and good night.
    • you’re not alone there ... i think the same thing. 
    • Ye of little faith!  Don't split hairs between nominal and actual impedance. And don't look at DCR as actual impedance.      A K-43 has always been a drop-in for a K-33.  So its impedance in a horn would be about the same, 8 ohms nominal.  Two in parallel would be 4 ohms and you really should have a 4 ohm tap to run them.    The impedance curve of the Jubilee is pretty typical.  Both of those woofers are 5.7 ohms Re (DCR).      jubilee imp.pdf .pdf
    • I went by the grocery store today (on my day off) and picked up some Folgers Breakfast blend...so I'd have some coffee next week, when I expect my regular tub to run dry...  nevertheless... they didn't have the classic folgers stuff lol... I progressed into chilies later tonight, and the opportunity popped into action, to try a Irish Pancake shot.... sooo, wth, I ordered one..., jameson & buttershot's in one glass and orange juice and a piece of bacon in another, and it reminded me of my forthcoming folgers selection, albeit, fine & dandy... just tired of the summer n 100 degree days, and wishing for a nice low pressure system to bring wet rain this way.... with the hope's of being able to snarl dtel on his yearly ocean cruise lol...
    • So did you make it sing steadily while you poked/prodded around or did you start at the bottom and work your way up checking every fastener, finally stumbling onto the pea under the mattress?
    • ... o O ( after 15 year's )   thinking that we need to see sawdust, and a 4" horizontal splitter screwed in there, along with a woofer motorboard reinforced with 1/2" steel angle iron....   .... o O (just because) 
    • Dear Dave A:   Ship all three to me for careful inspection.   You maybe won't like front-firing, directly-radiating at you 15 inch woofers (1) , woofers that are front horn loaded, from 135 hZ on up.  The two-way A7-8 has a very poor deep low-end compared to any Klipschhorn .   That alone, is a critical negative amongst true audiophiles.  And besides,  there are no provisions for employing banana plugs.    Jeffrey Medwin    (1)  Jim B. Lansing used to always say,  quite privately " ALTEC VOTT is like vaginal sex, as opposed to anal sex. "
    • bkwa1959 , I live   1.5 hours away  , I am gonna drive down , maybe take my Heresy with me  , Bill says we can hook 'em to anything they have . They even let you take home stuff for a week or so . At any rate  ,  I hope to be patient enough , or ,might just buy a PL
    • It's my premise that the gentleman that you identified knows what he is doing, but that his motives are less than stellar.  I don't like what he is doing--it's dishonest.  It is my belief that the reason why this thread is here and is growing is that discussing the review really does matter. Talking in depth about the review in a systemic manner rather than just taking poorly aimed pot shots I think is important. And attempting to summarily dismiss this discussion is something that I find to be uncalled for and unfair.  I believe that this type of magazine review does unnecessary harm to Klipsch's products--particularly the Khorn.  I think that's a pretty important subject, actually.   I think that it's not such a mystery. (You probably do, too.)  The reason why I took the time to write what I did--and it took a while to cobble together what I wrote--is that I believe what the magazine did does a great disservice to Klipsch and others that might feel that the Khorn has been almost a singular example of rebutting the easy opinions expressed by this magazine. PWK spent a significant effort rebutting these sort of "drive by" reviews, and also leading by example in his loudspeaker designs and educating his customers and his own staff. So it does matter because there are a lot of people out there (as evidenced by some of the responses here) that don't have enough information to separate the truth from assumptions, and that they actually take the words of a magazine that hasn't done it (and probably can't do it) over the words of those that have (Klipsch).   The point of talking about precedence of requirements in loudspeaker design is I believe is important--so much so that I intend to extend the discussion to Jubilees and perhaps other closely aligned loudspeaker designs.       Mine don't, but then again I've spent time getting to know them better via testing, updating settings, changing in-room configurations, and experimenting with different room acoustic treatments in order to significantly improve their acoustic performance. This work over the past 5 years is the basis of the above discussion on precedence of loudspeaker requirements.   I'm very familiar with this work by Sean Olive--and championed by Toole. There are some real issues there that ultimately benefit Harman and its current product lines.  I'll wait on those discussions. Just note that there are reasons to not believe the requirements precedence that Toole apparently pushes, and that it is quite easy to rebut.   Chris
