    Internet is to slow at the lake house to post a pic, this one was supposed to go with the other post. Added the wood to the walls also.

    Lol, I adhere to the very fine principal of laziness myself. Bringing sub to speakers or the other way around, seems far lazier to me, than the energy output to date. From dealing with Craiglister scammers, to all the keystrokes already made. Man, I'm tired just thinking about it.😀

    Yeah, a tube amp, which only makes a few watts. A very solid 70 watts/channel like you've got would usually be well sufficient. Unless you're entertaining fair-sized groups a lot in a large room...

    Yes, that’s the place. When I did the tree handrail in the cabin, he said I could use the little flatboat to get a cypress tree. I told him I was not going to cut down a tree from a 10’ flatboat. He said use any tree so I picked a oak on land.

    Well, I had a look at the specs on the Morel drivers. Not much of a replacement for a K-31. The Qts is wildly off and the required volume is about 3 times larger than what the Jubilee will provide. However, I do understand that for some of the folks around here will dismiss the engineering and throw up their hands and say "but it sounds good ...". So maybe this is a great idea of mixing drivers. After all, a guy on the internet said "but it sounds good". Wait: Am I supposed to insert a smiley face or something ?

    My wife at Bishops Castle in the San Isabel National Forest, Colorado. A remarkable structure, built by one man (The castle, not my wife. She is remarkable as well, but required one man and one woman to build) on private property within the forest. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bishop_Castle

    They certainly are not cheap but I bet they sound amazing. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Klipsch-CF4-Epic-Series-One-Speakers-Cherry-Vintage-1994-RARE-CF-4-Vintage/143349054811?hash=item216044fd5b:g:V2gAAOSwZP9dSgdo

    In the local Kijiji ... "Subs and amp", " Make me an offer. Worked when pulled out of sold car. Or trade for pot seeds." Ok, well I'm not sure you can do a mutual audition on that trade.

    I've had my ampsandsound Kenzie Encore for a couple of years now. I thought I would give a review here as many Klipsch fans like to mate their beloved speakers with tubes. https://www.ampsandsound.com/products/kenzie-encore-headphone-amp I'm not new to tubes. However, I'm not a veteran either. I've certainly owned more solid state in the past...esp McIntosh. In fact, my goal over the last few years was to have all or mostly McIntosh electronics. Well, I just can't seem to let this little cute preamp go. It is small and well finished with a nice layout. It has two pairs RCA Inputs and one pair RCA Outputs. It also has two different headphone outputs that I've used but not going to review here. Instead, this is used mostly as a preamplifier for me. You can look up the specs on the website but the unit uses: Input tube: 12SL7 or equivalent Output tubes: 1626 or VT-137 The tubes that came with it were just fine. You can find buy extras online for cheap. With an adapter, I switched the input tube to a Telefunken 12AX7. I use this preamp with the Oppo BDP105D and use the Oppo as the volume control; as the Kenzie has no remote. I have two different set of amps interchangeably mated with my Cornscalas which my son and I love to listen to. We use either two monoblocked McIntosh MC275's or Mcintosh Monoblock MC1201's. I can't decide what combo I like best but right now currently have them with MC275's. Recently, I acquired Klipsch KI-396's and have the MC1201's on them. I now use the Kenzie Encore with both sets of speakers. I also have it in the chain of my KP600 system with active crossovers and 10 channels of amplification. First off, the unit is solid. Heavier than you would think. When you power this up, there is no hum, buzz, click, or hiss. Power down is uneventful. Background is silent. You can't tell its on. This is remarkable as my stereo is a highly efficient and high powered system with a combination of many components. Despite it being labeled as a Headphone Amplifier, it has enough gain to drive all these amplifiers keeping a low noise floor. In fact, I keep the gain knob at the 11 O'clock position. So let's hear about the sound. This certainly sounds like a tube preamplifier with the highs that sparkle and the mids that come forward. Fortunately, there is no substantial roll-off of the top end and the bass isn't boomy. I would call the low frequencies balanced without bloat. At no time did I hear any glare or brightness that can sting my ears in the 8-10K range like some other amp-preamp combinations I've had. My ears are sensitive to those frequencies and I've had other setups with my MC275s and 1201s that have that notable issue. I don't have the words to describe how this preamp can add a sense of realism and emotion. It seems to bring me back to listening to music with joy as opposed to listening to the speakers and focus on things such as clarity and dynamics. In other words, I forget about being a critic of the sound and instead sink into my sofa chair and listen. I'm not saying this preamp doesn't have clarity and dynamics, what am saying is that I find I don't focus on it. There is definitely 3-D and spacial movement as the music sets a stage in front of you. This is hard to put into words until you've experienced it. The preamp is a keeper that I feel is rightly priced. jc

    The current set up-Acurus A2007, Yamaha CX-A5200, Zu Audio cube center, La Scala AL5 fronts, Sonance VP80s x4 in ceiling surround (14 ft floor-ceiling windows-wall mount not feasible) Rhythmic SW. Just replaced an Onkyo TX-RZ800, which I thought sounded good, but dayum what a difference...WOW

    @Emile don't think of your closet as a closet ... it's a really big port for your sub! Unfortunately, anything bigger than the DD10s for me, would likely be noticeable as the DD10s fit exactly inside of stands that I built for my Heresy. Hence, other sub(s) would be "outside" the stands and much more visible.

    Haha ... I hear you Have a different/similar problem. Trying to add a subwoofer to my (small) stereo room ... only place possible is a "closet." Been searching the web for days ... only good advise I really found was "try it." (Have a 15" sub in my main room; so guess I'll be hauling it into this "closet" to try.) Think the best advise is to try your subs first with temporary cables ... you may find that your "intended locations" are not the best. Maybe you'll get lucky and find that the best location is within "hard-wiring" range. After that you can decide

    Thanks @Emile, I had ruled out the RocketFish versions given some feedback I saw. If I have to hard wire both, they will be close together, which may be ok ... just looking for affordable options vs tearing apart the drywall! Maybe I'll have to sell one or both and get ... hmmm a bigger single subwoofer. There's a very nice Funk Audio 18 inch for sale near me. I wonder if my wife would notice if 2 cabinets turn into just one (slightly larger one).

    Hmm, I wonder how your Epics would sound connected to the sub you already have in the other room? Perhaps, a test would be in order. 📣

    Hey guys, didn't spell it out well. Think I should keep it? I do hate it when a song with a particular "weight" to the presence or ambiance that it can fill me with is F'd by a popping! "Echos" has tonnage of that weight with me, just like "And You And I" does... I sent that lp back with it's pop at the intro.

    The woofers, back air chamber and bass horn are a system and all have to work together. To get a horn to go lower, it must be LONGER, not taller. Longer inevitably means bigger. Look at some of Klipsch' cinema subwoofers. To accomplish what you want, you need to keep the K-33 and back chamber volume but make the plan view of the La Scala trapazoidal and maybe 6' deep all the while maintaining its exponential expansion rate (hint, measure the bass horn nearest the mouth and calculate the distance needed to double the area and continue to double the area at each increment of that length). Try this. Face the bass horn into a corner (backwards), centered and aligned on the 45 deg centerline of the corner. Space the mouth 14" from the wall measured from the front of the bass horn, parallel to its outside. See how that sounds. You may want to place a 2' x 4' piece of plywood also centered in the corner to block off the useless triangular part of the corner. This will simulate another fold in a longer bass horn, all for the cost of a piece of plywood. If you like it, start designing a new horn.

    I have owned many CD players as well as universal players from many brands(Onkyo, Integra, Yamaha, Denon, Sony, Cambridge Audio, Oppo, Adcom, NAD) costing as little as $50.00 to as much as $2500.00. Of all I have owned, the best sounding player is my current NAD C 542 which retailed for $499.99 back in 2006. Nice neutral tone, great pace and fast punchy bass. Bill

    My previous subs have been RSW-12 and RT-10D. The JTR is in another league altogether. The only comparison I can make would be when I lived in Japan I had a Nissan Silvia that made 300whp and was rear-wheel drive and then purchased a 530whp awd Skyline GT-R. Both the GT-R and the JTR were leaps forward in performance over what they replaced. The pressure the JTR creates in the house is simply insane. I plan on getting one more
