  1. This is what I have been doing for years. EQ the speaker to the room. Works fine. But I will get one of Klipsch's new ported subs. That will be a major breakthrough.
  2. Why port the lascala? Klipsch will soon be selling the ported subs with the DSP and amp included. You can't go wrong. Those things will bring lascalas into the 20s fully engineered. You can use these subs with other Heritage as well.
  3. Can you tell me what it feels like?
  4. I have a used K55-V diaphragm. Used but still works fine. If interested PM please me. It is $40 plus shipping.
  5. I use a laptop, and audioquest carbon cable into a Benchmark DAC3. Sounds fine to me. I haven't tried it any other way so I have nothing to compare to. I also have Fiio streamer with Sabre DAC for bluetooth and that sounds good for bluetooth but not as good as the laptop and DAC.
  6. Arto, I have two of the same amps on order. I intended to use as monblocks, but balanced. Are you running balanced? If so, did you get the required cables (for balanced) pre-made from Decware or did you have to make them? Can you share what the cable requirements are to monoblock them? I know, two different things. But it is good info if you could share. Thanks
  7. I bought a pair of SE84UFO. I bought these on 4-10-22. At that time I was around number 1200 on the real time build sheet. Today I am at around number 380. Doing the math Decware builds around 400 to 450 amps per year (all types included). It will be close to another year for me. So around a 3 year wait. Right now I see over 2400 on the list. That would be over a 5 year wait (closer to 6) the way things are presently going. Enjoy fellas. I feel like if I eventually don't want these amps I could double my money in about an hour. By the way I can use them on any of the Heritage in my signature. I had planned on the lascalas. I require near silent equipment. Anything else and it won't be in my house.
  8. Can we hear -68db? Seriously, I am waiting on two of these amps.
  9. Yeah..........don't forget the sub. Every bar needs a sub. πŸ™‚
  10. I miss bowling. When I worked at Lockheed Martin in the early 90s our team was named "Four lean hounds". We had some awesome times. Those were long seasons, like 10 months.
  11. Rough! But I see potential. Be prepared to spend significant $$ after the purchase if you want all this to be right.
  12. Dumb question: Have you tried a "cheater" plug (temporarily) just to see if lifting ground does anything? Obviously, this is not safe and hopefully you are plugged into a GFI anyhow. Another dumb question: Have you tried shorting the inputs when you power up and have nothing connected on those inputs? April 10, 2024 will be two years I have been waiting on a pair of SE84UFO. I was around number 1250 when I purchased, and now I am around number 400. How stupid.......I will never do anything like that again. I hope I still have the same email and phone number when they finally build those things. I hope I have the same address. I hope I am still alive. πŸ™‚
  13. There was a 308 at one point. Not sure if that is available anymore. It had a bigger throat than the 305.
  14. I have a couple as well. Both spring terminals and both in good working order.
  15. This is going to be another fantastic Chief Bonehead class. But we need a name for Mike Dyer. Maybe Ambassador Bonehead? 😁 He is just as entertaining as the Chief but in a different more commercial way. Excellent presenter. You don't want to miss this class and especially the Chief's faquitas. I can't say enough about the special marinaded meat the Chief grills up. A+++
  16. You have built quite the system. Beautiful. I think you need a bigger house Mike. πŸ˜€
  17. On some phones you have to set the phone USB output to a specific setting.
  18. I run a pair of 884s. You must really be pushing them hard if you are seeing the cabinets flex. I have not seen mine do that. Maybe I haven't looked closely enough. I am using a QSC PLX2 1104 for about 310 wpc. But just having listened to just the subs here and there at times........I doubt I play anywhere near what it would take to flex the cabinets. πŸ˜ƒ As far as I know the only way inside is to remove the woofer.
  19. What equipent is driving the lascalas? Could it be a synergy issue, and nothing really wrong? Sounds like you made careful repairs. But, Sonicaps can leave a brittle sound. As mentioned already there are kits available with factory replacement parts that return the speaker to original performance. It also has been mentioned already but some of the replacement diaphragms out there are seriously sub par. Not sure where you go to get the proper ones. This is a concern.
  20. Holy cow! ☺️ Craig going digital. ▢️ I remember you scolding the piss out of me years ago for that. ⏩ Imagine feeding D to A audio into your NBS and VRDs. All I can say is it won't hurt them. It can sound really awesome actually. 🀣 πŸ‘β­οΈ
