    I recently replaced my vintage Luxman gear with a new Luxman L-509X integrated amp... the combination of power and detail from the 509X and the sensitivity of the LaScala IIs is incredible! It seems like this combo was made for each other... I know this is a lowly YouTube video, but here's a clip of the last several minutes of Doråti's 1812 Overture... an amazing demonstration of how dynamic and refined the La Scala IIs are (with an admitted assist on the cannon fire from an SVS SB16-Ultra)...

    Hi guys, Few months ago I bought rf-7 ii, Rc-64 ii and r-115sw drivers. I had the chance to get them very cheep so I did. Only the drivers. Then I saw a guy selling the an empty rf-7 ii kabinet so i decided to buy that too and some more stuff and build the whole thing. Most parts I got. I miss the horn drivers and the crossovers I cannot find in europe and shipping from the States is all together more expensive than I want to spend. So I decided to use an active crossover (behringer cx3400) splitting two ways using two amplifiers. First one would be behringer A500 on the low and onkyo sr608 on the high. The thing is that I still don't have the horns so I used the Rc-64 woofer, which fitted perfectly on the spot of the horn. On the top I added a super tweeter with built-in passive crossover that goes from 5000-40000 hz. I use separate r-115sw for the very low, set to 60hz When I hooked everything up it sounded great, soft and complete, definitely better then my old rf-82's which I play along to hear the difference. But I cannot compare that to original rf-7 ii because I never heard those. I would like to have the sound at least as original rf-7 ii producing the whole range but I don't know if I'm missing something in the range without the horns. I cannot find the documentation om Rc-64 to see what range de woofers produce. And Im struggling how to set the crossover points. I would appreciate your suggestion and help.

    They had a little better food but nothing to get excited about, now fried mushrooms would have been my choice and horseradish sauce can go with almost anything. That what scares me, a little snow on occasion if good, your amount of snow is not........for a Southern anyway.

    Excellent taste in the speakers as well as the socks may I say sir! Well when you get tired of those khorns, I certainly wouldn't mind putting a couple bucks in your pocket so you can buy some shiny new silver speaker cables.

    Buy a pair Cornwall IIs. Recap. Save yourself a ton of money and get great sound. You can swap drivers and or diaphragms as well for not much coin.

    All good points but if the price of entry is reasonable and it operates properly, he is in for a real treat. Bill

    A real shame. I grew up watching Hee Haw with my Dad. It wasn't my kind of music (being 12 years old) but I did like the show a thought he was a good player. Later I realized he was a fantastic stringed instrument virtuoso.....RIP Mr Clark

    It's incorrect calling Mr. Clark a guitar virtuoso. If it had even a single string on it he could play it masterfully. Roy Clark, Stringed Instrument Virtuoso covers it fine. Saw him at Arthur Smith's studio playing with Arthur & Tommy Faile when I was a kid. Incredible person, incredible talent, very funny man.

    And I scooched over to the center couch seat last night while we watched the CMA's. Told the wife what I was doing and she said "Aww, you want to sit next to your wife." in a joking way, and grabbed my hand. 😀 Also asked her if she has ever noticed right speaker dominance in her seat. Of course, she said she never noticed anything. 😀 Imaging is just fine in the center seat, as it has always been with every speaker set we've had in this system.

    Just went to Costco again and now they have added an LG 65" OLED tv to the offerings there at $2499.00. Interestingly they have the Samsung QLED and LG OLED tvs on one side of the isle and all those other less impressive Tvs on the other side.

    Thanks for the input, this helps. As I listen to more recordings, I'm finding that many recordings of the same work (classical symphonies) sound poor, but some sound fantastic. I guess the Heresy just needs good recordings...

    a member here names moray james has lots of mods hes tried & says are improvements for the chorus 2. he may chime in soon. but heres a short list of some things you can do. add 1-2 oz of weight to the passive radiator to lower the bass freq a little. add bracing to the cabinets to stiffen them up some & experiment with some acoustic foam. also wrap the backs of the horns & woofer baskets with some type of product to dampen them, some use rope caulk on the horns others use dynamat type material. & another thing for these speakers is they like clean high power, they sound fine on normal reveivers or 50-100 watts, but they have a peak rating of like 1000w & really come to life when you have closer to 200watts per ch. i like mine on my onkyo 100wpc receiver, but when i hooked them to an adcom 200wpc amp &pre they were at a whole nother level. & yes, good recordings!

    So I called Duracrest Fabrics a few minuets ago and spoke with Ralph Fortino, president of the company. What a great guy! Completely unpretentious. Said he could re-do my forte II grill covers with current lambswool fabric on forte III for just $100.00 after the 1st of the year. That is material, labor, etc. Also stated he has current Heritage grill cover badges for $20.00 each. Just a hop, skip and a jump to factory in Elk Grove Village, IL. So, should I stick with original badges which are perfect, or go with new? Decisions, decisions! Best regards, John

    No one here would EVER think about using Klipsch pro gear in a home environment with consumer level gear. LOL.
