    Well, I spent yesterday catching up on the thread to find out what was happening with you all before I post my little bit of vacation speak. Cabin was at 4600+ feet and was a break from the summer heat both day and night. Saw places in and around Maggie Valley, NC that were awesome in sights and sounds. The Ponderosa it was called. A nice western theme throughout with the Cartwrights,Gene Autrey autographed pictures,etc. Spacious with a Nordic hot tub,nice DVD selection with an upper and lower floor. We stayed upper. Six restaurants for a nice sitdown meal including Ober Gatlinburg. Close as I came to teramusa was not interesting so, later on will try. ABC liquor store had the American Honey in miniatures, of which I expected to bring some home but, alas, I downed them on the deck overlooking the very scenic view of surrounding mountains. Smooth straight out of the bottle was superb. I give it 5 stars. No Franjelico in miniature but will continue to seekout. Was able to see at least 5 sets of fireworks of which 2 appeared sanctioned. Coffee Folgers wholesale was imbibed by all, me being the 3 cupper per day, as time permitted between the daytripping along the Blue Ridge Pkwy. Chipmunks and birds were fun to watch. Friend had a case of CD's by various artists which we listened to, much to the chagrin of the ladyfolk, who could not reach the volume knob from the backseat of the Ford Edge, which did good on the trip,of which I did not as much as touch the steering wheel. Except for the riding, I enjoyed from the getgo the calming, cool weather vacation. Nice break and can rec...... BTW, I passed on the legal moonshine! Guess I did not want to crash our party. Maybe nextime...

    Wild Turkey with honey, I have to say it's a little different you can't taste the whiskey over the honey or the other way around, a nice mix. Have you tried it ?

    Well that shows it wasn't right, better off now than later. Easy for me to say but you know it's right, it would have only been worse later. Your going to be fine, it just takes a while. When you think of her just remember it was not how it appeared, what you liked about the situation was not really what was there, it was different, at least for her it seems. Your no different than you were 18 months ago, except for Jake, so your better off.

    I have read that regular sex can make you look 7 years younger. There were no suggestions for how to keep your wife from finding out though. Keith

    Thanks Carl and billybob. Wish I had you guys around to throw a few back with. This to shall pass but it just doesn't feel that way now. GF's lack of concern about how this affects me is more than surprising.

    It really is that good, my new favorite thanks to CECAA, glad you liked it. Sounds like a nice trip, it is really great looking scenery in that area, were going in a few weeks. Fall with all the leaves changing is hard to beat but we go whenever we can. Were going in a few weeks, our daughter is bringing her motorbike over here in a couple of days, she wants me to practice riding for a couple of weeks so I can ride it with the wife while up there. I have not been on a bike in 30 years I am a little nervous about this, not sure it's going to happen. All I know is it is grey color and looks really big and much more shiny than the dirt bikes I had had, don't think this is a good idea really. But you never know what will happen, Christy said she will ride with me which is not a smart answer considering, she trust me more than I do. Sounds like a good trip.

    I discovered American honey a long time ago. Somehow I don't think it is the same as what you guys are referring to.

    Your welcome. Thanks, it has been my pleasure! No problem. I brought dtel a bottle when I was on my way from FL to TX. Hooked him instantly. Hooked another forum member on it at the last gathering in Hope. I'm a bit of an enabler. It is gooooood stuff now! Hook is set...lol!

    I love the stuff, gave up that nasty crown royal after tasting the honey. Thank You Carl That's true it was instant and permanent. I have tried other brands with honey but none were as good. I like it just with a little ice.

    I don't have issues with receivers. They have their place just like a Bose Wave Radio. Both are utilitarian in nature. Shakey Yeah, that's right, receivers totally suck. That's why I use an Onkyo 818 with Audyssey XT/32 to drive my 2.1 all horn Pro setup and blows away anything I've ever had before it. Watts don't mean crap when you have 110 db/Watt. efficiency and never use even a full 1 W. And the sound has blown away every seasoned audiophile ever to sit in the sweet spot listening to their favorite music. I won't even mention the male-neutering sub-bass output. I mean why have total system integration from input to output, including room acoustics, extremely short wiring, great grounding, very high signal to noise ratios, right? It's much better to have ground loops, longer cables, filters, impedance mismatches, etc. cobbling together 50 year old signal and amplifier technology......................NOT I'm an Audyssey fan, but I hear good things about Pioneer's Room EQ. "It isn't so much that liberals ("audiophiles") are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't so."..........Ronald Reagan

Pretty good stuff I had read here. Will buy it again. There were a lot of bikes of course that did not mention. Seems alot of bike riders are digging on it pretty heavy. Funny you should mention riding a bike after several years. Have been thinking of getting another one again. It should be fun checking it out by yourself to see how it rides for you. Last time I recall riding was 15+ years ago on a Honda VFR 700, prototype for the 750. I snapped on a helmet and was gone doing 120+ when I noticed the speed. I let off slowly. Will have to use your wife riding with you, if it happens on my gf. No agreement from her to ride with me. It was absolutely a good trip!

    Since whoever gets the last word in usually wins, I just make sure I hang up on him a lot! I'm behind on everything right now, especially shipping. I use a nice packing place down the street, and all I have to do is make it over there before they close. I'm not always real good at that. It's not always easy being your own shipping and receiving department. So, that meant I still had Steve's AAs here last night, and since Deb and the kids were out visiting friends, I decided to load them up. With a whole week of solid listening behind me, I thought I would once more spend some time listening to them using the stock setting for the K-55. The session convinced me that I need to find a place for the Auricap in my builds, because the sound was really nice - but even so - with the volume up, the K-55s start running away from the rest of the system. For louder levels, the additional 3dB drop in midrange output works really well. I played with this for about an hour before putting my networks back in. All I can say is that the sound stayed smooth and balanced, with just the right amount of bite up through the most obscene volume levels. This behavior was very reminiscent of the Jensen PIOs. There were other differences too, very evident with vocals and piano, which sounded much more life-like, vibrant and clear, but not stripped of their natural warmth. On tap 4, the other networks were just obnoxiously bright. My networks also did a much better job at separating out the instruments during busy, normally congested passages. System of a Down's "Toxicity" was amazing on these new networks.

    I'm glad to hear this... (I know that this is not your case, but) Sadly, I learned my lesson the hard way mostly because I "used to be" a one more turn type of guy, just to make sure it was tight enough. That was until I felt the need to turn a spark plug on my car just a little more to the right and it broke off. I still remember the shock of my neighbors when they heard my verbal reaction to what had happened. Therefore, I'm very tender when it comes to speaker terminals.....

    LOL. Nice hat. How could Dave possibly want more with the hat to top all hats like that?! We will await news of your progress with baited breath. I hope Ron's Audyssey EQ has enough capability between 3,000-15,000 Hz. to act as a PEQ for his JBL 2360A CD horns as he will require shelving in that range with about +12 db at 12 Khz6 . Since you will be crossing over to such a low midrange frequency (ideal, IMHO) of 225 Hz. +/- 25hz. you should be in the same neighborhood as your woofer mass break point as well as an optimum throat size for that horn already. More than likely, the only change you will make is to maximize the rear chamber volume, which is easy to do. But I will still be very curious about your process, progress, and ultimate conclusion via your EARS!

    Only update is my screen came in. It was HUGE! Like way too much fabric huge. LOL. When I told them I didn't want the "Precision Cut", I thought that meant that I wanted a non-angled 150" screen but instead, they sent me enough fabric for me to angle it myself and cut it myself. It was only about $20 difference so no biggie. Since I have the extra fabric, I'll angle and cut it. Wake will be working on building the front wall in his spare time so I'm not in a hurry.

    Can you say Deja Vu?? And will the re-issue ALSO have the "elvish runes" on its back,? I've been growing out of my original for years now...and maybe it is time to get a new one that is NOT a size medium, but maybe a size extra-large?? Hopefully, the reissue will be SILK-SCREENED instead of the "iron-on (quality??)" of the original. The stretch fabric of the original tended to stretch much further than the transfer did, which tended to break up the transfer and it would separate from the cloth when washed. I would love to see this shirt as a re-issue, too! Yes, this pic is of me back when I was a slapping together a hundred-plus HDBRs a day...raggedy-looking dude wasn't I??

    Just a thought. The whole world doesn't want to hear your music. Shut your doors and windows if you want to crank it up. Have a few bevies and knock yourself out.

    picked up a whole trailer load of Klipsch Pro cinema speakers- I'll be using them in the theater where I work. We do the rock musical 'Hair' next month so the two KPT484 subs will be the first to go into service.

    Unfortunately, in my house there is such a thing as having too much bass.....at least for my wife. She already thinks the RSW-15 is too much bass. That's what the volume know is for. It goes up AND down. I'm sure there's times when she's not around I live in a stone house on two acres - for the neighbor's own protection!

    Tried to get some specs on RB5 or RB5II today. The Product/Discontinued gave both part number in the pull down menu, yet returned no data. Using Google, I was able to locate the info on the Klispch website so the data on older speakers still exists, but something seems wrong in the website SEARCH function. Thanks

    Thanks, I'll be listing some more stuff here in the near future. Stay tuned. Pick up always preferred, besides where else can you hear a whole pile of Klipsch in one place (ok at a lot of you guys' houses), but it's a pretty nice tour for those new to collecting.

    And to be clear I enjoy the old threads......however they arrive. If they hold no interest I move on. Its always fun to see Duke's avatar and momentarily get excited thinking that he is back....only to realize that thread was from 2005.

    These have been my main speakers for 12 years. I purchased these because they were more kid friendly now the kids have grown up ,and I can go with a more traditional speaker. They have upgraded crossovers from ALK Enginering Universal network. I am asking $1200.00 which includes delivery up to 200 miles from Beaumont Texas. If you would like you can pick them up for $1100.00.
