  1. Parts-express.com would be a good place. The 25uf and 18uf (orange ones) could be electrolytic caps and the 8uf and 4uf (brown ones) could be the Dayton polypropylene caps. Cost about $20 plus shipping. http://www.parts-express.com/cat/crossover-capacitors/292

  2. Okay, so I get this phone call from the University of Utah. The accent is a little thick and I'm really tired. He informs me that he has a background in audio, and is curious as to why I don't use air core inductors in my low pass sections. Red flags start going up, because well, I'm the guy that can hear the difference between capacitors but now have to blurt out that I can't hear the difference between coil types (if inductance and DCR are kept the same). He insists there is a difference and that it's quite easy to measure. I'm having some trouble understanding him, but there is an air (ha ha) of competency to his speech. The only thing I can think of that might be applicable is in the area of hysteresis. So, even though I don't think the bigger horn loudspeakers come within a light year of experiencing this problem, I realize I might actually be wrong. I start thinking that if this guys thinks this way, then others probably think this way too. This brings us to the question of using something you don't think makes a difference, but you do it because someone else might. So, to cover my backside, I decide to ask Mark Cooper of Universal Transformer if he might be interested in winding up a 2.5mH air core for me in 14AWG. It won't win a beauty contest, but these guys don't mess around when it comes to winding stuff. Alright, it's ugly, but it's tight and varnish impregnated/dipped. I specified the peculiar shape -- the conventional method takes up too much geography on the board. Comments?

  6. Major Bar Announcement.... With the recent upgrade to our "forum" the never before seen board of bar guy's has made the decision to upgrade the sports/television section of the club. Here is a mock up of what is being considered. Additional restroom facilities are included with this plan. More parking may be needed to handle the increased flow of bar patrons coming to the club, therefore the board is considering purchasing the vacant lot next door. More info as it becomes available.....

  7. Here is a bit of what I've been working toward... Been a few years and 30+ amps in the making :-). Its the same amps Ive built numerious times but have moved some of the build process to more efficient repeatable means. Believe it or not, the hardest part of building these amps is the grounding scheme, somewhat complex and used to provide the quite I demaned for use of my La Scala's. I swear, you could hear a bad preamp tube through the tweeter :-).

  8. For the record, the Volti Audio V-Trac horn was the first Khorn replacement horn developed with a 2" throat - a feature that was soundly disregarded as unnecessary by ALK at the time. To my knowledge, the V-Trac horn, developed by me, with information that I gathered from many different sources, all of whom I have thanked numerous times and am eternally grateful to, has outsold all other Khorn replacement horns (regardless of throat size) combined. I believe this is because of the good marketing that I have done, implemented with information that I have gathered from many different sources, all of whom I have thanked numerous times and am eternally grateful to; and also because of my ability to take an idea through the prototype process and end up with a manufactured product; and also probably because most everyone who hears the V-Trac horn thinks it always has been and still is the best sounding replacement horn available for the Klipsch Khorn. It should also be noted, that unlike all the other Klipsch upgrade parts suppliers, Volti Audio does not rely on the Klipsch forum for business. I'm not saying that Volti doesn't ever sell to a Klipsch forum member, I'm just saying that I'm not on here on a regular basis cultivating business. I suppose I should thank Dean for keeping this thread up on top for the newbies here at the forum to see, and by doing so helping them become more acquainted with www.klipschupgrades.com Thank you Dean.

  9. When i first got it i was pretty much going to only use it for movies. After all i have a 70" lcd behind the screen i bought 6mo before i got the projector. But now its hard not to watch it on the screen. Games tv movies whatever. And when i do want to use the other tv just hit a button and boom the screen is up and out of the way. Plus they have projectors that work with all the lights on. So you don't need a light controlled room like we used to years ago. Im not saying buy one I'm just saying its something that for the money your spending might be a better value.

  11. These are not paper in oil, they are metalized polypropylene in oil. I have not used these, nor have I heard these in any of the Klipsch networks. As far as I know, I don't think anyone else has either.

  12. I only have one at this point. They are waiting for me to decide if I like what they sent me. As for what I hear, I am jaded. I've made my mind up about certain things a long time ago and this creates problems. Last year I adopted the idea of letting others evaluate for me. Some are like me (opinionated), and some are relatively new to the concept of critical listening. It's been fun and educational.

  15. You could return the tv and and get 125" screen and projector. For what you paid you can get a pretty nice set up. 2500 for a really good projector and 1k for a really nice screen.

  18. Dependent on when, I'd certainly be there and would likely (have to check with the landlord, my brother) able to offer a roof in Texarkana to one or more at our lil' ol family homestead he still maintains there as a "place to be." For those from afar, it's less than an easy half hour from Klipsch HQ. Anyway, certainly interested and I suspect LoneLobo would be as well, again dependent on when. Dave
