  1. i haven't been around very long, and i am COMPLETELY NOT technical i.e. i know what sounds good and what doesn't. if you haven't guessed, i am MKP's wife (haha). F*CK convention and everybody else. You speak your mind and when someone is being an idiot, let them, they can't help it. don't get sucked in or offended. opinions are like azzholes, right? we all have one Look at this forum for example. it started innocently enough and then the sarcastic humor comes oozing out of the 4 corners of your screen lol. when life totally kicks you in the teeth and it is so hurtful that you can't talk about it, you can write about it. these forum folks have consistently lifted each other out of pain, despair, hopelessness. i am sooo glad my husband found these people. yea, it is just a forum. but it is not just a forum. there is so much support here. most of the time i don't feel involved. tough. when i think of something funny, i post it. silly pics, etc. we are all imperfect people. be yourself and roll with it baby!!

  2. That picture I posted is directly from the SVS-SB2000 manual - it appears like it has line-level inputs. On the MA5200, he can remove the jumpers between the pre-amp outputs and the power-amp inputs and use Y-splitters to route the full-range signal to both the H3's and the sub. At least that's what I would do - like the picture.

  9. Glad it wasn't worse. Not a good feeling when you know you're going down while on a bike. Been there, twice. Neither one my fault. Between my two street bike wrecks....2 totaled bikes, 3 totaled cars. One of my brothers was always amazed that I would spend $600 on a helmet.

  10. ^ Roger that, its raining down here too. For the next 3 to 4 days so they say. Time for indoor projects once the weekend comes around. Have to take the better half to LAX Saturday morning, she's going to Peru to see/take care of MIL. MIL is now 95 and living with SIL which is a much better situation then trying to live by herself. Hoping the round trip to the airport is only 4 hours, wish me luck.

  11. Yep, hit a "Curb" of new concrete, 4" lip, sharp edge of concrete when new pavement covers old black top and they forgot to place temp asphalt for a little ramp, a dozen cars had front blowouts. I hit at 39Mph because i was just throttling up coming on to the freeway. (Low speed Wobble) Sliced front tire in half, $12.5K to "Re-Fresh " ride. Likely the worst part was the wife was 6 car links behind me, never saw me go down, but drove up on it. She saw me, and a guy walking back to her saying "He's Alive"

  16. And I hear ya' right back! I did a similar comparison a couple of years ago with a DIY speaker I had built. It's the age old question "how good is it?" when the answer is "compared to what?" In my case I compared it to the Bose 301 since it was a fairly common speaker a lot of people have heard and I arbitrarily assigned it an "average" score of 50. For no good reason. +++ Hey, it's your thread, so it's your rating scale.

  17. The crossover point will be where the Heresy woofer naturally rolls off and the subwoofer low pass adjustment is made on the back panel of the subwoofer.

  18. pbphoto summed it up nicely in the illustration above, the OP just needs to adjust the settings on the back of the subwoofer to get it to blend properly and its finished.

  20. There is not need to run the speaker or sub full range. The ideal is to blend at some XO point. That sub does not have line level inputs which would work best. I don't have an answer and need to think about this problem. You can also try both ways since you get the final decision on what sound best: just proceed with caution at a reasonable volume. You certainly don't want the sub playing over 100 Hz unless it is right next the the speakers or between them.

  21. Texas has some crazy weather swings. The weekend before last I was hunting near Fredericksburg with my son. We were tent camping and the temperature dropped below 16F both nights. The highs were in the 20s. Two days later we were hunting about 50 miles from there and the afternoon temperature reached 86F. I came back with a bad case of bronchitis (and 5 deer).

  23. The Y-cable method I mentioned would send full-range to both your amp (and thus your Heresy III's) as well as your subwoofer. Set the low-pass on the sub somewhere in the 55hz range to blend in nicely with the H3's and you're done. This is how I run my H3's with a sub, powered by a MA6500. This is what is also recommended in your sub's manual:

  26. If you like the place, then stick around. Seriously, I don’t feel welcome here often...even after 10 years. I think i can relate to you in that i don’t feel that I fit in very well in most places that I’ve been--so i come to experiences expecting to remain an outsider. People generally like me; but, i suspect I keep people at arm’s length. And you’re right--it’s probably more on us than them. We often don’t know each other’s life experiences that make us sensitive to certain things; and while I prefer written communication, it’s hard to joke around sometimes without being taken seriously (i guess, i don’t think i’ve ever been taken seriously). Just keep participating and continue being you. The best person you can be is yourself. If anyone here has an issue with that, pay them back by sticking around. I will say that a few of the folks here seem to be spectacular and have been very kind to me.

  27. If the manufacturer cannot give you a straight answer knowing they designed and tested their product before putting it on the market, our opinion would would only be a guess at best without knowing the driver T/S parameters and cabinet volume. High passing is not going to hurt anything but you may miss out on program material, if the subwoofer was designed properly it should have a high pass already installed in the amplifier itself to prevent driver damage.

  28. My first Klipsch experience. It was 1988 and I had just moved back to my hometown of Indianapolis after landing an electrical engineering job and I wanted to celebrate with a new audio system. I went to my local high end audio dealer which was Ovation in the Casetlon area of Indy and purchased a pair of Polk speakers and a receiver. I hooked up my new gear and put on GNR "Appetite For Destruction". The speaker overload protection soon kicked in. I was so disappointed, I boxed them up and back to the dealer we went. Of course my salesman first wanted to know what kind of cables I was using. "Uhhhh speaker cable" I replied. Well that is your problem, you need these new $$$ Monster cables. I was not so easily convinced and thus my salesmen threw in a few feet for free to get me out of there. Back home and reconnected the same problem still existed. Back to the dealer again. Of course this time my salesman was sure it had to be the electrical service to my house was dirty. Just so happened my friend had an oscilloscope, so I verified a lovely sine wave was present and confirmed what I already knew. This time at the dealer they asked me what I was listening to? Another gentleman nearby whose name was Victor (I think he was the mgr) told my salesman to get me a pair of Heresy. He then looked at me and said "Go home and try to blow these up, if you do, I will give you another pair". Of course I didn't try to blow them up, but I did crank them up. The difference was amazing. I was now completely happy even though my wallet was a little bit lighter due to the extra cost of the Klipsch. I have been loyal to this day to Klipsch (except a SVS sub) and have 3 different types of heritage lines in my HT setup and am always wanting more. I am a past forum member but my old profile got lost in the software changeover sometime ago during a period of my inactivity, so I am starting over but I do not believe I ever told this story. I also have an event that would be best named "My most awesome Klipsch experience" but since I am again a noob I need to work on my post count. So I will post it separately.

  31. Your speakers look as good as new. A few days ago I pulled my rarely used Heresy IIIs from a shelf and placed them on top of a pair of subwoofers. I am really surprised at how good this combo sounds, with the tweeters at seated ear level and the subs giving me control of the bass, fine tuning the sound depending on the type of music played.

  39. Klipsch Chorus II > McIntosh MC2105 > C26 > Sonos Connect. You are already there with a classic music system. If you plan to stream compressed music only at this time this is all you need. The only upgrade would be a higher quality DAC which would make Lossless and compressed sound better. But you would still use the Sonos for wi-fi. You can either get a DAC only or a pre/DAC like the McIntosh D100/150 which would replace the C26. However, If you think you will add a turntable later then you will want to keep the C26 and just get a DAC, the D100/150 has no analog inputs, other products might. Based on budget, presently I would recommend spending money on reconditioning MC2105 and C26 and adding quality cabling through-out. I suggest you start a new Thread requesting DAC recommendations to focus attention just on that purchase, there are many options.

  44. Yes...but not REGULAR production. And, very few were sold. The whole concept was to have a speaker that basically performed like a stage LaScala, but had a smaller foot-print, and was easier on space AND weight...so that more of them could be carried in the same truck/trailer space that LaScalas would take up...for road shows and the like. The "Little Bastards" were actually MORE expensive to produce than a LaScala, with negligible savings in weight...therefore cost-prohibitive. We would take a pair of the "factory loaner" LB's to the Little Missouri River by Blevins, AR, quite often...set them out on the gravel bar where the river bend is, run some speaker wire back to the door speakers on my 1980 Dodge D-50 Sport pickup, and use alligator clips to attach the speaker wire to the terminals of the door speakers' speaker wire...and rock the river using my in-dash cassette deck! Keg parties, ice chest parties....lots of people wading or swimming in the river, or floating on inner tubes...and BBQ grills fired up on a lazy summer Saturday afternoon...it doesn't get any better than that! I could fit two LB's, a LARGE ice chest, and a 55-gallon drum grill into the bed of that truck easily...with room to spare!
