  1. In an effort to consolidate and focus forum content, we've moved some things around, combining several previously too-specific forums into other forums where it made sense to do so. No posts were deleted in this process, only moved. So, here's how the new forum structure breaks down and where things were combined/renamed). Klipsch Announcements Klipsch News (formerly "Announcements") Klipsch Pilgrimage / Meetups (formerly "Klipsch Pilgrimage") Klipsch Website & Forums Info (Combination of former forums "Website" and "Forums") Klipsch Audio 2-Channel Home Audio Home Theater (now includes the old "Palladium" and "Powered Subwoofers" forums) Architectural Klipsch Pro Audio (moved away from its own forum section) Technical/Modifications (a combination of the old "Technical Questions", "Updates & Modifications", and "General Electronics" forums) Headphones Personal Music Systems (a combination of the old "Computer Speakers" and "iPod Speakers" forums) General Klipsch Questions & Info (now includes the old "Vintage Vault" and "Accessories" forums) The Klipsch Joint (formerly "Other Areas of Interest") Garage Sale Alerts Lounge (combination of the old "What else is on you mind", "Music/Movies", "Sports", "Computers/Gaming" forums) Right This Minute As you can see, there is much smaller number of forums to weed through. We feel this will help everyone in various ways. Thanks everyone!

  5. Welcome to the forums, and Happy Birthday! It's a good place to be when you can simply enjoy the great sound of your Klipsch... Sometimes we get carried away with trying to improve the gear, sometimes succeeding, sometimes failing. Sometimes we don't know which took place. So... continue to enjoy. Bruce

  7. The sound of the horn is more determined by the shape than materials. I like the sound of a wood horn, but I am relatively certain it is psycological. I dont think these would be a fair comparison for a K-402. The curved portion of this horn is cnc cut, then hand sanded. Dave Sorry I was not able to use the quotes. I reallt dont like the new site changes.

  8. Important but not important if you don't need additional gain stages or any of the advanced features.. I've been using a Slagle Autoformer Volume Control. The device is passive with one autoformer per channel no resistive parts. This thing baffled me when I first got it as it doesn't even require power. All this does is attenuate the sources directly. I have not had a single device it couldn't properly attenuate whether digital music server, rtr, phono preamp, and cdp. TI'm not going back to a preamp even though I've used some very good one. In fact I am building another Slagle AVC with the autoformer that has more settings. In my setup I have found it to be more true to sources and source material. his is the less is more camp. Here is an example.

  9. Craig, aka Mustang Guy, is the right person to evaluate this stuff. We had a long conversation yesterday. His background and location in "Chemical Valley" makes him uniquely qualified for this assignment. Craig understands the need to find a source for the anti-static agent, Cyastat SN (or equivalent), in small enough quantities to be useful to individuals. It's not a solution ( pun intended) if any individual gets a drum of anti-static agent and then has to re-bottle it in small quantities and ship to individuals. We need to find a distributor who does that as his/her business. I want to apologize publicly to Craig for forgetting to send the Elvanol in the package. Apparently, I've been around too many chemicals, thus damaging the few remaining functioning brain cells. I was flabbergasted when he mentioned the absence of Elvanol, and then I saw the small container that was intended for the evaluation kit. As we spoke on the phone, Craig was on the ChemicalStore.com site purchasing his own stash of PVA. As promised, when the anti-static agent is sourced, a list of supplies and sources will be posted. In the meantime, if you want to try the PVA facial alone, get some Elvanol 71-31 from ChemicalStore.com, and Kodak Photo-Flo 200, and glycerin from Amazon (see attachment). Distilled water and suitable alcohol are no problem.

  10. Not a clue, I have not yet heard them. I suspect they will sound good, because JBL, Fostex, and Altec have all had good success with similar designs. Dave

  11. I haven't. Looks like the La Scala bass bin with a modded top. I don't think it came from Klipsch like that. I am, however, far from an expert.

  13. Actually, the Klipsch Upgrades business is doing better than I thought it would at this point. I focus on upgrades for Khorns and Belles, and I figured the number of people inclined to do upgrades that haven't already, would decline as the years went on, but the business has remained steady. It's good work that keeps the lights on at my shop, and I intend to continue as long as I can. Greg

  15. Only one side is on the wall and still sounds good. But with 2-RWS-15's and 2-JBL ES150P's I have enough bass for now. (-: http://s981.photobucket.com/user/wrench722/library/H%20Horn You made those!! Let me pick up my jaw from the floor... Since you made them, why not make backs for the sides that are not sealed off with a wall? I think horn-loaded bass sounds better than direct radiating bass of those subs. Plus, the bass bin handles up to 450Hz; no way the subs will do that or that an AVR will even let you set a crossover frequency that high.

  16. I would talk him out of the wireless speakers. Just let him know its a great idea dad but it just has not caught on to where anything worth the money has been put out. Im sure he would pass on wasting money

  17. I have been using an inexpensive Birch/Maple plywood for my prototypes, however I think Baltic Birch ply would be ideal. Because of this horns design, they are relatively easy to sand with a palm sander to get the basic shape, then hand sand the finish. I am going to spend some time on this horn today. I would like to get this to a point where I can kit this for DIY builds. Dave

  18. Sorry to hear you have to part with your gear! I'm not surprised you have a list of folks interested in the MC-30 that was a smoking deal! Good luck!

    Seating for four by Palliser. The riser is medium-term temporary (ha ha!). Room is 18' deep, wider in front than at the back.

  20. Greetings on this fine night chaps.......Drinking some new Dogfish Head "American Beauty". It's a beer brewed with ingredients suggested by The Grateful Dead and their fans. I have been trying a bunch of Dogfish Head beers due to watching a documentary called BREWMASTERS on NetFlix.....Very good show about the brewery. I also got some MEAD......Sky River!!!.....Cheers

  21. Someone just sent me the link to this thread. I haven't been here in a long time, geez it looks really different around here. Had to jump through a few hoops to get back into the mix. Thank you for the kind words guys. I've been working my butt off to try and make Volti Audio into a real business that might someday be sustainable. It's hard. The review in Stereophile worked out great. Art Dudley is such a nice guy. There wasn't another writer/reviewer in the industry better suited to reviewing the Vittoras than Art. I was very fortunate that he came into my room at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in 2012 and was quite taken by the Vittoras. I'm very pleased with the review of course, but what totally shocked me was the Class A rating in the October issue of SP. That is REALLY cool. Still recovering from RMAF 2013. We made the best sound we've ever made there. A lot of credit goes to Gary Dews of BorderPatrol Audio and his fantastic 300B amplifiers. My most recent newsletter if anyone cares to read it http://www.voltiaudio.com/newsletter/NL25.shtml I'd like to say that I'll be hanging around here more often, but I'm just so busy lately. I'll try to check in now and again. Greg

  23. Phantom center (no center speaker) would likely be better than using a small unrelated speaker. As for not using a sub, I am pretty use than you will get a compressed version of the LFE channel redirected to the KHorns, rather than the full effects. The LFE channel runs 10 dB hotter than the others so they must attenuate it in a 5.0 configuration. Build a horn-loaded sub!
