  1. I like their stuff, but if it was just me I would pass on it. I have pretty much seen everyone I wanted to see - except Led Zeppelin. My niece had just locked down tickets for all of us for the Cleveland show and Bonham died almost the same week she bought them. I haven’t had a drop of serotonin since. This is for my wife’s birthday. Deb would’ve been happy in the nosebleed section, but blowing her away is so much more fun.
  2. My first concert was Starcastle, Styx and Kansas. Ticket was $5.50 2024: 2nd row for this show? Two VIP tickets - $933.83.
  3. It wasn’t sarcasm, I just didn’t understand.
  4. At first, he didn’t have a tweeter. After moving some things around, he ends up with no midrange or woofer. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  5. He veneered the top and sides of the boards. I felt like I was doing surgery. I covered as much of the veneer as possible while soldering. I also charged for the autoformers and extra for packing since they were going across the border. I think actual labor was $200 per board. He’s basically selling for cost of the parts. Pretty good deal from where I’m sitting.
  6. Ever build anything like this before?
  7. @mikebse2a3 https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/how-do-these-two-charts-come-from-amps-with-essentially-the-same-thd-n-measurement-1khz-5w-4-ohm.45551/ I went straight to the 7.2 receivers at Best Buy, since those products used to be the worst offenders. They don’t even list the test frequencies anymore, just give you a total power number. I looked through some of the Chinese built tube amps on Amazon. Same - all you get is a total power spec.
  8. You will get a bandwidth specification, but I’ve seen plenty of amps and receivers use “x amount of watts at 1 kHz” when rating power.
  9. Label is wrong. These are modified AA’s. Theta film and foils with 6dB attenuation on the midrange. About $650.00 shipped if built today.
  10. Good thread. If Jensen was still around I would still be building with them.
  11. Don’t know if he’s involved with any of the day-to-day stuff but he is 81. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
  12. Vintage rule: replace part with like part. Your capacitors are metallized polyester - you can get a kit from JEM Performance. Link is at the top of the page. Going to a polypropylene film and foil is smoother, but also much brighter.
  13. If you don’t know what to do with them, I’ll install the kit for $150.00. Dean
  14. What’s fun is to curve something that someone swears is the best thing they’ve ever heard. Measure first, then you can start trusting your ears.
  15. Did you read the pinned posts at the top of this section of the forum? Did you read all 9 pages of this thread? You’re not likely going to get any additional information. If you want to discuss modifications using non-Klipsch parts/ third party solutions - you need to use a different forum. Some of us use … https://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?forums/the-klipsch-korner.131/
  16. A rookie shot, but I like the perspective.
  17. Those old cans (pre 70’s) are paper in oil. What I’ve never known for sure is whether or not they’re hermetically sealed - I just know I’ve never seen a leaky one. I’d be inclined to leave them alone.
  18. I run “power hungry” ATC monitors with a 60 watt Cambridge integrated. I probably have 30 watts more than I need. To be fair, the room is small and I do sit close. Not as dynamic as horns, but they can surprise you.
  19. Jeff probably never goes into the Technical section so wouldn’t know about the sticky’s. For the uninitiated, Crites can’t build a “factory spec” crossover because he doesn’t have the right autoformers. You can do a lot of other things with the larger units, but “factory spec” isn’t one of them.
