  1. Try the flavored creamer first, the Frangelico is REALLY good over ice but I don't know how it taste in coffee ? And that could get a little expensive. But if you like Hazelnut you need to try it. "According to the manufacturer, the name of the liqueur is based on a legend of a hermit named Fra Angelico who "created unique recipes for liqueurs." However, the bottle itself most closely resembles the habit of a Franciscan friar, while the liqueur's likely namesake, the famous painter Fra Angelico (d.1455), was a Dominican, whose robe would have been white and without the cincture. Frangelico is made in a similar manner to some other nut liqueurs: nuts are crumbled up and combined with cocoa, vanilla berries, and other natural flavors, and then left to soak in the base spirit. After the spirit has absorbed the flavor of the ingredients, the liqueur is filtered, sweetened, and bottled." Yes, I will be getting the creamer first, on our shopping list. Plan on trying the Frangelico now that I know about the flavor. I can get into over ice. Then on the the coffee just to see if works. Some liquor stores here have miniatures. Maybe I can try it that way first,lol. Thanks

  5. You can also go to the klipsch.com non forum website, at the top right side(of non forum website) you will find "HELP" tap onto that then put kg 5.5 or tangent t500 in once at a time and you can do a direct comparison between the two. heres the link to tangent thread https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/73121-anyone-heard-the-tangent-t-5000s/ Best of luck to you. Please keep us posted on what you find in your comparison. May add it to the tangent thread or even ask a question in that thread about them both kg5.5&t500. Good people frequent that thread. Searching will bring up lots of good ifo as well..

  6. For $150 the tangent 500 in mint condition is a very good buy. Many similarities of the t500 to the heresy 2. I have some t5000's and although the specs between both the 500 and 5000 vary from what i read and know the 2(t500&t5000)are a heresy variety with a passive 12" radiator kind of speaker that are a bit rare. I have heard some people say the t500 are big brothers to the kg 5.5. Even at that i would still say it would be a step up into what i prefer in a klipsch 3 way in the klipsch heritage series. It is likely your 5.5 need updated crossovers or just freshened up as well as the t500 once you get them in your hands. Using an eq in my opinion you can get out of them what you will get with a fresh or updated crossover. Regardless my comparison hearing the kg 5.5 and tangent 5000 yes they are very similar although the 5000(much like the 500)being a 3 way as i prefer is like i said a simple big brother to the kg 5.5. If you do not buy the t500's please let us on the forum know, as well as if you buy and dont like them. Please take good care of them as well. They are becoming very rare and as a passionate klipsch collector myself i see preserving a pair of mint t500's now 25 years later will be very much appreciated. Also if you dont buy im sure depending on your location that you will find a buyer for them. At this time may not make a whole lot of money although i may be very wrong. In time even at this moment the tangent 500&5000 is very hard to come by. I will find the current t500,t5000 klipsch tangent thread and post it here for you to read. Cheers to you!

  7. Hi guys i have a chance to pick up a pair of tangent 500 in mint condition for 150$ and am wondering. How these would compare to my kg 5.5? Any input is much appreciated.

  10. OK, no stripper. I had sanded pretty well before, and Mr. Reference's advice to NOT over-sand sounded about right, so I cleaned up the surface one last time with a dry rag, and stained. Before: And after, with stain: (the lighting is slightly different, so the lighter places near the bottom of the pic are not really lighter than the darker top, which is in a slight shadow) I am doing the work in our finished basement, so there is an old 36" tube TV in there. I had to move the speakers, because when they were within 5 feet of the TV, the magnetic field from the two 12" woofers caused the colors to distort on both sides!

  12. The T500 is the Heresy II with MORE Bass. If you love the Heresy II, you will love the T500. KG5.5 and Tangent 500 are two different beasts. (one is a leopard, the other is a tiger )

  13. you can't beat the price for the drivers alone. I would buy them for that price. As far as speakers go if you are into modifying I would look for a pair of 5.5 or parts for a 5.5 and build a cabinet that is a little larger and you can tune it a little lower to around 30 Hz.. Titanium diaphragms will transform a pair of 5.5 as will other modifications, you can have a lot of fun. Another great option would be a pair of CF3 which are a three driver two way much superior to the 5.5. Lots of options to explore. Best regards Moray James.

  19. The 500, 400 and Heresy II all use the same components. The 400 is ported, the 500 uses a passive radiator. The Klipsch info says the 400 and 500 have a K-24-K woofer with a poly cone, but it isn't. Bruce

  20. Good idea, hate to buy a bottle and find you don't like it. I like it with just ice, let the ice slightly melt and your ready, I like liquors like that, you can get the real taste not being mixed with anything. well that's how I also did with Crown Royal which has now been replaced by American Honey which was introduced to me by forum member CECAA850 as a present, when he was passing through. Really good stuff and very smooth. American Honey? Wow, I am behind the times. That is how I drank my Crown. Intense flavor. I will be on lookout for the Frangelico. Thanks

  32. Exactly OK this may sound crazy but it works well. What I use outside is a pioneer car radio that has preouts, and a small Crown amp instead or the pioneer amps. The pioneer has a connection for the single wire headphone as an input, it also does HD radio and CD's. I plug my phone or laptop in and stream Pandora or Spotify. It works great for the outside bar or in the other yard speakers if I don't go out of wifi range. In this pic I had some Heresy's on the bar trying everything out before mounting the Heresy's permanently, sounds great and works perfectly. I use a 15' wire to connect to the phone so you can sit anywhere at the bar or even lay in the hammock and change songs. The box with the radio and amp are now mounted in behind the bar, an old car battery on a trickle charger runs the radio. Not normal but works great and the sound would surprise you, the speakers are now mounted where the grills are in this pic.

  36. I will say while running 5000's with an eq without fresh crossovers I added a very good powered 12 to them(tried a few powered 12's)and found they did not need a powered sub. I have also owned quartets and its a toss up although my quartets were not black which i prefer black i still found the front passive made it a bit easier to place in a room for use. With the h2 I really have to go tangent all the way. If you are hungry for bass get a cheap eq until you can update the networks. Musically compared to a kg 5.5 I really find it hard to compare. They are both good although the 3 way tangent will likely make you much more happy. Very similar to a quartet.

  37. They are 3 ways! The advert at Klipsch list them as two way. They are 3 way, like a heresy if you want to think that. They are tallish. Around 36 inch as may recall. Ther is/was an image here at Klipsch. Nope, Sorry! They have been corrected: http://www.klipsch.com/tangent-500/details

  42. Cheers on the choice of black. I cannot believe now to find you looking for 20's in black. 3 months ago i had my hand on a pair a little over an hour from me in findley ohio on craigslist. Now all i find in that area is somebody else looking for black 30's. I am onboard to help your search here in north east indiana. Nonetheless best of luck on the hunt and i will look into my prior contacts with 2 different black klf 20 purchases that i let go of or they let go of me.. mark

  44. As someone who has had the opportunity to listen to a MartySub and a 4.0 cu. ft. 18" sealed sub, can you provide a more detailed subjective comparison? I can see from the graphs that the MartySub is louder, but beyond that, does one sub sound different and/or better than the other? The sealed sub has the advantage of being a simpler build, and it's smaller/lighter, but beyond those two obvious advantages, do you see any other factors in the sealed sub's favor? I don't have any measuring equipment (yet) to take graphs, so it'll just be what I can tell. The sealed sub definitely gives greater extension. Based on reading the MartySub thread a crapload of times, I shot for a tuning closer to 15Hz rather than 17 (+/-). From the 15Hz on up, it's no comparison - Marty all the way. Below 15, it becomes a much closer comparison. Running a 15Hz wave through the Marty causes something in the room to shake in a way that sounds like drywall slapping against studs...it's downright impressive - something the single sealed could never do. If you sit right in front of the sub when the 15Hz wave goes through, you can feel air moving - I never felt that with the sealed. To me, the sound from the sealed and ported were very similar. The ported sounded "closer" if that makes sense, but overall, I can't say that one sounded better or worse than the other. From the back of the room, the Marty definitely still had more presence than the single sealed. All of this listening was done with an EP4000 bridged with the gain nob turned towards 3:00. Just for the heck of it, I hooked up both the Marty and sealed to the EP bridged and turned the gain all the way up. Talk about the best of both worlds...I have kept it that way. Regardless, I can definitely say that I never plan on buying another sub. DIY all the way.

And yes it normal, at 10 days she is a cutie (looks that way anyway), gone a month and she would look like Bo Derek, it's perfectly normal. Well just guessing really, being married for 35+ years things have changed so much I would guess girlfriends and the whole dating thing is totally different now.
