    Evenin everyone. Update: Lawn still needs mowed if anyone's interested. Ha! Consumed and wandering aimlessly 😂 Watching the first game of the Stanley Cup Finals w/no sound. I was channel surfin and there it was. Think I know where John and oldtimer are. lol Just remembered that Brain Salad Surgery tour in 1974 was done in "Quad." They had it running in Cleveland Stadium. As I recall, I was lifted and transported outta there landing somewhere between Kansas City and Tupelo, MS after the encores! 😎

    Tuesday morning and I'm almost sober. We ended up putting my 396's on the back patio this weekend and the more we drank the louder it got. I generally try to be a good neighbor with regards to volume but failed miserably this weekend. I earned the right to wear my "Pissing off the neighbors" t-shirt Sunday night. On the garage front, I finally finished priming the ceiling this weekend. Chad hasn't fixed the error message I get when posting from my phone so I haven't been able to post pictures. I still need to paint the ceiling, hang lights and garage door opener, install trim and make shelves. A lot left to do but I'm getting close to the finish line.

    Other end. Nothing hooked up...just there. Minimal albums to listen to, CD's still mostly packed, no internet so can't stream, no TV up here so can't browse server yet. But that's ok...we're in the new house.

    Here Here! Lotta talk about that today... well twice that I saw. Hope you didn't wake to ugly or could sweet-talk your way to a ride home🤣 Fantastic play list the last couple of days. Been having blt's a lot too but not like that one until the next time I make one. Geeze 96 + every day for the last week... thing is I'm grateful because it hasn't rained. @dirtmudd you know that's like a bat signal for me!! Play Aerosmith then insult (the sound quality of the LP you do allude to) the most recognized R&R band ever! It's copacetic MTBs sweet sounding self titled from `73 Tull-ish with a southern... somebody plays the flute.

    It happened so fast I couldn't even tell the friend what was happening. I was having convulsion-like shakes, diaphoretic, lethargic and nearly unconcious. I just remember that I wanted to go to sleep. She (the friend) got me to the ER, who was already called that I was coming, gave me an amp of D50, 3-4 oz. of orange juice and a meal that had more carbs than the Holley company puts out in a month. Went to my GP doc today to tell them what happened and get my meds adjusted. All this so I can also pass a pre-op exam to get my hand operated on (painful trigger finger).

    Cake icing in squeeze tubes works well especially if the person is non communicative. Squeeze some between the cheeks and gum. You always run the risk of hard candy choking the person in need especially at that low a blood sugar reading.

    First, welcome back. I'm guessing that puts some clarity on some aspects of your life. I get the weight thing too.... I dropped from around 165 to 129 in about six months. My wife bought some jeans....had me try some on....then said "here, try THESE on" and they fit. Looked damn nice on me.... then I stopped cold in my tracks, turned and said "These are YOURS, aren't they??" They were.

    Went and picked up the 396's from the freight carrier because I couldn't wait and it was only 24 miles from me so tonight won't be the first time I've pissed of the neighbours, but I have, on occasion, reminded them of two very important things: 1. We have no noise ordinance in our township. 2. "you think that's loud, hold my beer"

    don't count on the published efficiency levels being accurate, you can expect them to be in the range of at least 2 - 3db hot and they are often measured at 1KHz.. Still a 2A3 can surprise most audiophiles, I am sure yours will also.

    The big suction cup sounds like a great idea, but the rough surface could be challenging to get a good seal. Prying is an option but damage to the wood is very possible, either the cover or cab. If they use some form of putty or sealant from the factory, it will probably be pretty difficult to pry off cover without damaging the cover and cab. Let me preface I don't own this cabinet, nor have I ever attempted to open one but I do have an alternate idea. Since it is the bottom of the bass cabinet and is rarely seen, I would purchase a single sturdy pull handle attached by two wood screws. I know you are in Italy and may not have a Home Depot, but surely you have access to a hardware store. I would attach this handle about 40 mm from the edge of the access panel then use handle to open. If you cannot do it with just your arm strength, you could also pry against it (handle opening) using a extra large screwdriver or a lever of some type (crow bar or metal rod), using a block of wood to protect the cabinet where your pry bar contacts. Once you have it open, remove the handle and re-insert the 2 screws. You can use the handle on the other bass cab hatch too. When you purchase the handle, also purchase 2 extra attachment screws as they usually just come with just 2. If you are really attention oriented, you could apply as small amount of rtv silicone sealant to the screws to completely seal when re-inserting after removing handle. Hopefully I have presented my idea sufficiently here. Drill an appropriate pilot hole for the handle screws before insertion. 1/16" min (1.6 mm), but based on the diameter of the screws. Not too large on the pilot hole tho. In the end, you will have two extra screws in each access hatch, on the bottom of bass cabinet. Big deal. Link to the the handle I'm describing/proposing below. Handle could be a bit larger, but you get the idea. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Liberty-Hammercraft-3-1-2-in-89mm-Center-to-Center-Black-Front-Mount-Drawer-Pull-P93000C-BL-C5/100146770

    For a 2way, finding a horn that goes low well and high is sometimes difficult. At 1200hz on up.... not hard and it was called the econowave. You can use 1" drivers from Dayton and Selenuim. But to go lower than 1200hz ... 1.4" or 2" drivers become needed. I know the JBL 2380 can do it but needs some EQ in the HF. Im not really sure what other horns would do it... Dave's Eliptrac is so special as its a 2" horn that could do 500hz to 18khz without Eq or issues. The next best choice is the Fatial LTH142... its a 1.4" horn. I have loved B&C drivers... the DE85 and the DE750 come to mind for 2way but need a 2" horn. As the Fatial is 1.4" I used the most logical 1.4" I could find :-). This project was expensive... Could have build a cornscala for nearly the same money... Extra plywood was the only real additional cost. This wasn't done as I wanted a smaller speaker to fit my new smaller room. Although the LF12 is 94db which is much lower than a K22. It still makes for a very very efficient speaker which digs lower than any stock Heresy and without the bass hump or porting. That said, lots of paths... many good ones.

    In 1977, I was 12 years old. The only report I would have gotten from a manager is that if I did that again he would throw me out. Thank you for the information. I will try to find someone who might know more about the theater to see if there was more. I do know that it is a very small theater and did not have any type of surround sound. So far, one correction I have to make is that it's not a 12" woofer. I have the original woofer that was part of the package I bought. It was in a Realistic box that said 12" but that speaker must have fit something else. The one I have says it's a 515 on the tag. The 8 cell horn is a tar filled 805 with what I think is a 288 driver. Thanks again

    Done. I went for the handle solution. It was pretty easy, the gasket material isn't sticky at all, so i didn't have to pull too hard. Maybe even a 'softer' solution would have worked just fine. Now i'm left with two extra screw holes, anyway, they are barely visible from the inside. I'll just use some wood stucco or something like that to completely close them. Thanks again for your help guys.

    Thanks guys ........ it’s really hard to capture the true beauty of the veneer but I hope to try to post some better pictures in the near future. Klipsch’s redesign of the cabinet allowing Top and Bottom cabinet’s continues veneer matching on these as well as the Pair Matching is stunning in person IMHO. 🙂 miketn

    Well, I could take credit for typing that fast, but remember what I wrote in the first sentence of this thread: I copied those posts from another thread. So my error (I suppose ) is that I didn't update them faster than the first poster in the thread to be mutually consistent without the intervening posts from the original thread by people other than myself. Sorry about that--I'm not THAT fast. Thanks. It's nice to hear from time to time. Absolutely. Thanks, Bruce. Not rudimentary but actually extremely insightful. The "minimum-phase story" is one that I didn't talk about above, but it is actually critical to understanding what is occurring with recordings, mastering, sound reproduction systems including really good loudspeakers, and listening rooms. The problem (as you already know, Bruce) is the concept of minimum phase isn't part of high school education (which is about the only common point of reference for all readers)...🤔 I.e., tying those few really hi-fi recordings whose originating phase relationships are perhaps largely still intact to flat frequency response and flat phase (i.e., non-multi-track recordings), then reproduced by loudspeakers having flat frequency response and flat phase (if the frequency response of the loudspeakers isn't absolutely flat, then the phase is also then messed up--because loudspeakers are minimum phase devices) and having very good directivity that keeps the early room reflections minimized, and into a listening room that doesn't immediately mess up those phase relationships by adding nearfield early reflections before it can reach the listener's ears. These are simple concepts for those that have been exposed to them in advance of this thread. But not so much for those folks that are being exposed to them for the first time in this thread. That makes the thread a bit more than a 60-second sound bite, unfortunately. A lot of people say: "well, I don't listen to music that has that level of fidelity". Okay, so you don't. But I do. I like my music with as high fidelity as I can get it--even if that means I have to undo some of the damage done during mastering (but I can't fix mixing issues) via undoing the "translation EQ" and perhaps a few other things--which opens up a lot of recordings for higher fidelity reproduction. So I do demastering--and I've written about how to do it in a thread on this site. Same thing for doing measurements using a calibrated microphone and REW, dialing in loudspeakers (PEQs, delays, etc.) and rooms with DSP crossovers, and acoustically treating my room to control early reflections. Well...there it is: the concept is actually pretty straightforward...just not often found on these web pages. Chris
