  8. Today, I received my final paycheck from my previous job, and to my surprise, it was more than twice the amount I had anticipated. To celebrate my daughter's graduation from high school, I decided to treat us by purchasing a new grill. I used it to cook a delicious meal consisting of lobster tails, filet mignon, asparagus, mushrooms, Vidalia onions, and red bell peppers. It was a fantastic way to mark this special occasion, and I must say, grilling proved to be a much better cooking method than my usual pan-frying skills.

  12. If the manufacturer is actually stating that the cabinets have 116 dB sensitivity, then do the following three things: 1) read the fine print, 2) take that number with a huge grain of salt, 3) put your wallet back in your pocket (if the "sensitivity" is important to you).

  13. Me too. Looking forward to this. How long has everyone waited for dedicated subs for the Heritage models? I would not miss this opportunity to learn and listen all about these.

  14. So today, I came home from work early as I'm not feeling well, and my apprentice is not either. I just spoke to him by phone and he says he has tested negative for Covid, but still feels bad. I'm old and broken down, so feeling bad is not unusual for me, but he's young and strong, and for him to be feeling that rough concerns me a bit. If you are a praying person, please send up some words for Ryan's health. That said, I thought I'd take a minute to sum up this thread for any interested parties by saying that last night I made the decision to spend a fair amount of money ordering a number of parts that will be going into my Cornwalls in an attempt to make them sound more like what I want. I won't detail what I'm planning here, as such things are understandably frowned upon by the good folks who host this forum, but I will be discussing the work on my YouTube channel, the link to which can be found on my profile page. It will be a couple of weeks before work begins, as it will take a while for all the parts to arrive from the various vendors. When it's all said and done, assuming I'm happy with the outcome, I will have a lot of original Klipsch parts for sale, and I will post them here before putting them on eBay, and that way perhaps someone can repair/restore their speakers with original parts. Thanks!

  22. @billybob @OO1 Thank you both for your valuable insights. I've done some research based on your suggestions: 1. On Amazon, the J-foot seems to be suitable only for TVs up to 70 inches. 2. I also came across a mention on BestBuy stating that the speaker has a maximum weight capacity of 70 lbs. 3. Lastly, I found another potential solution on Amazon that might address my needs. I truly appreciate your assistance and guidance. Thanks again!

  24. I was starting to worry that you wouldn't get them Congratulations! Pictures are always welcome. They can't be too large, but if you use an android phone you can take a pic with a little extra room around it, open it up and click the edit tool. Along the bottom it has 'crop',, click that and take a little off the size. When you save it it gets resample and the size goes down a LOT. Pictures, we like pictures...

  33. Some left from the latest drop of Freddie Kings - 1971 release of "Gettin Ready" out there if you're interested... The first of Freddie King's three albums for Leon Russell's Shelter label set the tone for his work for the company: competent electric blues with a prominent rock/soul influence. King sings and plays well, but neither the sidemen nor the material challenge him to scale significant heights. Part of the problem is that King himself wrote none of the songs, which are divided between Chicago blues standards and material supplied by Leon Russell and Don Nix. Here's the full album. Yea, I did it... I'll find a place 😂 💪 😂

  35. @KROCK my lil woman make a believer out of you? I know I got @JohnJ, @Full Range and prolly @dirtmudd hooked a few years ago but that's what this place is about. I just noticed ya posted a new release of Just Won't Burn and how it was on pre-sale now w/a release the end of September. My advice to anyone even THINKING about ordering it is to go the pre-sale route instead of trying to pick one up somewhere. They'll be gone in a heartbeat. wwwTeceschi-Trucks band. She did this song the first time I heard them about 6-7 years ago and my jaw dropped. I've since picked up the release and PAID but I HAD to have it. Naturally she's got Derek w/her on it @ the Beacon. Good? It's freakin amazing so ya better pony up boys. 5 Star plus imo. @KROCK, Thanks for the heads up on the "Deluxe Edition" I've got 2 comin! I'll MAKE room. 😂 Previously, Susan Tedeschi announced her plans to mark the 25th anniversary of her iconic solo debut, Just Won’t Burn. The impending drop expands upon the initial format to include five previously unreleased bonus tracks and more. As a preview, the artist has shared a live take and visual equalizer for “Looking for Answers” from Tedeschi Trucks Band’s October 7, 2022, stand at New York’s Beacon Theatre. “I remember writing ‘Looking For Answers’ while visiting my parents in late ’94,” began Tedeschi. “I was delving into other types of tuning, and it’s one of the first songs I wrote in open D. One of the verses is about learning to pray, an intimate homage to my Catholic upbringing and the pursuit to figure out the requisite prayers – looking for answers that nobody knows,” she concluded. Just Won’t Burn was recorded by Sean Carberry at Rear Window Studio in Brookline, Mass., and produced with the help of Tom Hambridge. On the topic of the anniversary set, Tedeschi commented via a press release, “Making Just Won’t Burn was a pivot.” Dotting the presence of other artists on the LP, such as guitarists Adrienne Hayes and Sean Costello and harmonica player Annie Raines, who assists on Tedeschi’s original songs as well as material popularized by the likes of Ruth Brown, Junior Wells and John Prine. Her comments continued, “All of a sudden, I was working with different groups of people, new musicians, new songwriting collaborators. We had no idea how it was going to turn out. I think the thing that held it all together was the blues. Blues is a language that I love. You can take it anywhere in the world and communicate with people, which isn’t necessarily true about other forms of music. And being a white artist in a black milieu, you just have to let the music speak.” Following the ’90s release of her debut solo set, Just Won’t Burn achieved Platinum status and earned Tedeschi a Grammy nomination in 2000 for Best New Artist. “The way people react to Just Won’t Burn has always been heartwarming and surprising,” admitted the artist. “I used to get letters from a prisoner who identified with the songs and found hope in them, and then I started getting letters from the rest of the prisoners on the cell block because it was the only cassette they had.” Discussing the achievement, Tedeschi added, “Sometimes, when I look back on the 25 years since the release, I think about the places I’ve been and the adventures I’ve had, and I feel like Forrest Gump. I say, ‘No! You’re a baseball mom. You didn’t do all that!’ But I must have. The blues has its demands. You have to be honest — musically, emotionally, and personally — above everything else, and that can lead to some uncomfortable truths. But the blues hasn’t burned me. It hasn’t hurt me. It’s my main resource. I can express myself and get stuff out about my life – or, like B.B. always said, ‘whatever ails you.’ The blues got me here.” Jambands.com JUMP!

  36. OK, so while I have been working in audio electronics for a while (since 1977), I am the new guy here, and I understand my place as such. So I definitely would not like there to be a "capacitor war" on my account. That said, I believe there's a lot more to cap replacement in crossovers than "is the old cap really bad." Changing from bipolar electrolytics to film caps can change the sound of a speaker, and not necessarily for the better. Sometimes, a crossover designer will voice a speaker with a certain kind of caps (and inductors, as well) that have maybe a bit more than the minimum ESR (or DCR in the case of inductors). Replacing these with "better" components can change the sound of a speaker considerably. I have a pair of smaller Advents on my main workbench as test speakers, and a couple of years ago I recapped the crossovers (it was necessary, the caps were seriously leaky) and I replaced the bipolar electrolytics with thumb-sized Nichicon film caps. This got rid of the excessive midrange reaching the fried egg tweeters (which is why I checked out the crossovers in the first place), but the VERY low ESR of the Nichicons made the top end brighter than normal. I've gotten kind of used to it, but at first it was bothersome. I may still add some 1 ohm resistors in series with the tweets to tame them down. That is, if I ever have time to fool with it.... The Cornwalls I have include what I believe to be the original oil caps. They tested well, and they're not physically leaking oil (and yes, you DEFINITELY can smell it when that happens), so I don't plan on replacing them any time soon. I don't think they're the root of the problem. I will be replacing the horn gaskets soon with some supplied by a friend who used to build PA speakers, and we'll see what that does. I just have to get them - and some time - first.

  45. I ran back and forth high pass at 200 and slight boost to meet the sub around 100Hz. Another method is high pass where the bass bin falls off 80-100 Hz (room). Those subwoofer amps should make that end easy.
