    I finally decided to put some grills on the Chorus II passives to prevent damage to them from the cat. Ended up going with some Generic eBay 15" grills and earth magnets. Worked very well. Very clean look as well.

    I agree John and thought the same thing. They do have a two-year warranty though. I know if i was runnng repairs for Schiit I'd have some "upgraded boards" for audiophiles so maybe them seeing what I had helped. That's just a guess though dunno. Whatever it is I have to take into consideration the "innards" aren't burned in too. Sounds fantastic now though so giving this a spin and it's sweet! Gotta love the jazz renditions of the Allman Brothers.

    Bookshelves, small surround system and a sub, but it's a start. Restricted to online, but again it's a start. https://www.costco.com/CatalogSearch?dept=All&keyword=klipsch

    Room EQ Wizard (REW) works for me. It does all that you've mentioned, plus a lot more. Here's a link to a thread where many of the different plots/measurement types are shown:-- here and here. You can also look at Omnimic if you want to buy everything as a package. Personally, I'd buy the calibrated USB microphone at miniDSP (UMIK-1). There are other packages available that you can pay for: ARTA, Acourate, etc. For me, I don't see any advantages of these tools over REW. Chris

    Big games coming up tomorrow and the Big 12 has a path to the CFP. #5 Utah got crushed by #13 Oregon Friday night. The winner of #6 OK and #7 Baylor may jump into 4th, especially if #4 GA loses to #2 LSU. Saturday is going to be pressure packed for all the top four teams, and those wanting to be a top four team.

    More psychedelics! Gotta look into that band. Makes me think of the Peachoid between here and GA.

    Couldn't resist. Bought it as a stocking stuffer for myself. Starts out good. Pocket torch, with safety cover, safety lock and a stand so it can cool off before you put it away. Soft grip handle so you won't drop it. Well thought out. Er, um but then there's the bottle opener. Yup a bottle opener. On a pocket torch. Flame and brewskis . What could possibly go wrong? And it's hardly an afterthought. Most of the torch is plastic but the opener, metal so it won't break before you run out of gas. I wonder if the inventor is still alive?

    Ohh whoa This is the music I know I feel I gotta let it show This is the music I know It's to you, I gotta let it show The second tune off the record was big on the radio around here for a couple of years after this came out in `81. Missed out on them here in town but in about `01 or 02 they opened a new Harley dealership just north of the Satellite Beach bridge on US1. Not bad for some old rockers even then!

    Another pile, not 415's though, shows up next week. See I am not like Westcoastdrums though and keeping it all a secret until the walls of my shop start bulging out. I am a nice guy and let you know temptation is lurking about. Honestly though I don't have the problem it's the guys who will be finding places to put these that will have the problems. I have plenty of storage and a forklift. They have desires and most of them wives with speaker evil eyes.

    The Klipsch/Pro website lists my speakers as surrounds, so I will need to place a pair in the back corners of the room.

    I have always preferred the 3-way Jub over the 2-way. But honestly since the recent trip to Roy's lab now I can't say why. The 2-way Jub blew me away. This was the 3rd time I heard Jubs in that room in Hope. Clearly, Roy has evolved the presentation of the Jubs. If I could get THAT sound in my house it would be the end-all for me. I don't think 2 or 3 way has as much to do about it anymore. We were supposed to be there to hear the new Heritage models and I walked out wondering why my expensive setup doesn't match what I heard when he played the Jubs. I have TAD 4002s on my 402s, and 691s on my 510s. I have a Xilica processor. Mcintosh preamp/amps. Roy only had a pair of 691s on his new version 402s, and it appeared he still had the same EV DX-38 processor and same Jub cabinets I saw in there 10 years ago. He had a new QSC Pro Theater amp. The drivers, amp, and newest version of 402 horn are probably all that changed in 10 years..........besides the processor settings and maybe wires. I would just get the standard 2-way now......which gives you those exact speakers........and go to the next education session, listen.........talk to Roy..........and especially look closely at that room. I know we all like to tinker and find our own sound. But I don't think I could do any better than that.

    well played brother Mike, well played. I worked at a Kmart for about a week. I was sent home my first day because i wasn’t wearing a belt. I was busy doing stuff at closing time and got locked IN the store. Thankfully, the manager was in the parking lot talking and saw me inside the store and unlocked it. The cleaning crew was there but they were locked in all night by design. I was going to call the fire department (don’t know if they had 911 back then).

    I knew this was going to leak. I've been back up on the Hill working on this for the last two years. This was supposed to be unveiled as part of the Kennedy Center Honors 2019 this week during at the induction of Earth, Wind and Fire. It is the sole reason behind last years Farewell Tour for George Clinton as the leader of Parliament /Funkadelic. He will be nominated by the President at the beginning of next year's term as the 1st Secretary of the newly formed Department of Funk. The Senate is prepared to put aside the Impeachment trial and take up his confirmation on an expedited basis. Bootsy Collins is slated to be the Undersecretary of Grooves. The Department's motto will be "We Got The Funk!" and the central courtyard of the Departments headquarters will feature a full sized stature of James Brown bustin a move. All employees will be issued Flashlights. Now I know my fellow Klipschers are true patriots and can be trusted to hold dearly what I am about to reveal. A large portion of the Department's budget will actually be dedicated to cutting-edge research on very large array space orbiting speakers which can be deployed over China, Russia , North Korea and Iran on short notice. The Bar-Kays, "Too Hot To Stop" will be broadcast causing their missiliers uncontrollable spasms of dance floor booty calls rendering them incapable of pressing the launch buttons. Should that prove insufficient Johnny Guitar Watson broadcasts will lull them into a center of the groove. Be strong my fellow Americans for we are the funk!

    For my main listening room, everything is active. In my other rooms, simplicity is key, and analog still reigns. Here's before and after when I added a Zobel to a tweeter, with help from DATS and SPICE (for circuit analysis).

    Just when I think I’m out they pull me back in,I was ready to get away from vinyl and before I started to list my turntable I was looking on one of the Audio sites and a guy had a like new Denon DL-103r cartridge for sale and he was less than 75 miles from me.I contacted him and I told him I was interested in his cartridge and when he told me he was planning on spending a couple of days in Pigeon Forge,Tn .So today we met and I installed the cartridge in my system and what a shock I didn’t think a 450.00 cartridge could sound this good.So instead of selling my turntable I am now thinking about buying or building a record cleaning machine.

    While I don't have measurement tools. I have heard ZERO difference on my "test tracks" after this "mod". I don't think the magnets are THAT powerful to impact the driver on the other side of the speaker.

    I've been doing both, lately. DATS made it all very easy. Also great for designing Zobel networks.

    Going to be a fun day. 60 degrees and sunny. Pig Picking, shooting, a few beers by the Cape Fear River with 50 or so high school chums (all guys). Taking a 9mm, AR-15, and a new .22 single six Wrangler. A 45 minute ride into the boonies. Report to come..........

    That's strange they would ship you a new or refurb and not admit the one you marked had an issue. Glad the new to you one sounds good @Dave1290

    I am fortunate. Military TriCare covered my family for ~ $500 / year I turned 65 I now have Medicare primary and TriCare for life for me. The family is still covered under TriCare Prime at the same cost of ~$500 / year My Medicare premium has a $57.80 surcharge due to my income. I was paying ~$42.00 for the family. After my 65th birthday I now pay $244.40 per month for the same coverage. So my birthday cost me $200 a month.

    i’ve been blessed in this regard. I have Tricare from my military retirement and also since the VA rated me at 60%, i get everything through them for free. When i retired from my county job, i turned down their retiree medical (it would have cost me $550 per month) -- i didn’t need triple coverage, especially at that price. Hope you find a deal that is manageable for you.

    It'd be alright for a quick spot-check or similar use. Definitely not for any part of a comprehensive, iterative process except the very initial stages, perhaps. Although I'm sure there are as many people with perfect muscle memory as there are with perfect aural memory...

    It's been suggested that I mention that I'm currently planning on providing a tutorial on REW and using a DSP crossover for flattening in-room response of SPL and phase. The exact date/time/place while there is TBD. I'm planning on bringing a Yamaha SP2060 or EV Dx38, amplifiers, a laptop for running REW, a calibrated microphone, preamp, floor absorption, etc. for the demo. If there is any interest, I could also run through how I currently demaster music files using Audacity (freeware). If there are any specific topics that you''d specifically want to be covered in either of these subject areas or other subjects, you can discuss it here or by PM. Chris

    After the speaker positions are arranged for the best sound, I will work on color matching the whole set.

    After vertically aligning the voice coils, the tweeter was in a position to radiate onto the backside of the K-402, so I put a mat of ROXUL into a black pillow case, to absorb that angle of dispersion.

    As we get further along in this homestead we find ourselves seeking out ways to encourage growth and life, rather than tear it down. I'm still a consumerist ***** with my love of electronics, but we also continue to seek out ways we can simplify our life, reduce our negative impact through better stewardship of our land and resources, and become more self reliant. We went to Medieval Times the other day for a homeschool field trip and I was saddened by all the wasted chicken left on the plates of kids and adults alike. I probably wouldn't have given it another thought if it weren't for our own efforts of raising, harvesting, and squeezing every bit of food resource out of our birds. So with that growing awareness in mind, here's our Christmas tree for this year - and maybe future ones if it survives.

    Indeed! I posted that on here a while back and was amazed at how few were even willing to take the measurement! I guess if a person invested in a costly SS “arc welder” they don’t want to find out that they only need 1 watt to satisfy their loudest possible listening level. 😀 Maynard
