  1. If your pretty sure its a solid 2 db then id start by cleaning the driver and speaker wiring connections. 2dB is quite abit for a single driver to be off if you ask me. What SPL level are you testing at and does it vary? For example how db is it off at 80dB vs 95dB ?
  2. 20 seconds? Hardcore snipers bid at the last 4-7 seconds.

No number of 6" drivers are going to beat a Khorn. So I wrote them off as viable contenders... Not even in the same league, IMO. DM---------------- What white paper are you reffering to? The Pi Speaker Alignment Theory? .. http://www.pispeakers.com/PiAlign.doc I am not sure what you are talking about but no Pi speakers use anything smaller than an 8" driver.
  4. The horn is an Eminence H-290, Radial 90x40 , I did not build the corner horns simply because I dont have the space for such a large speaker. Mine are one of the smaller speakers from Pi. Thanks for the compliment but my work is nothing compared to some other home built Pi speakers, check out the gallery.. http://home.comcast.net/~bentvalve/pigallery.htm
  5. First and foremost , I respect and enjoy Klipsch speakers , after all even after I got rid of my Klipschs I still enjoy reading here. Anyways I built some Studio Series 4 Pis from http://www.pispeakers.com , details are here, http://home.comcast.net/~bentvalve/pi.htm Its been around a month now and I cannot believe what a major leap these were from my RF-3IIs, I have heard LaScalas , RF-7s and the KLF20s and I feel as though my Pis outperform all of them. $750 and some time and I have a true lifetime set of speakers..there simply is not much else to be desired in a speaker from here. These are unbelievably dynamic , powerful and detailed sounding...extremely delicate when needed and powerful and explosive when needed. These are really quite easy to build , I highly recommend these to any Klispch owners who might be looking for other alternatives in horn speakers. Pi is owned my Wayne Parham who has been building and designing speakers since the 70s....there are models for as low as $100 a pair for the parts on up to $1000 and more. Wayne shares the plans for free over the internet, just go the his forum and ask. Well I hope I am not intruding here at Klipsch because that is not my goal, I just wanted to let Klispch owners know about these great speakers.

If you guys try and complain, saying hey it printed as $379, you can probably get them. I dont know, give it a try. It worked for me and I am happy as he*l. Just upgraded from a RF-25 to the 5's, but the thing that sucks is that I remember paying over $500 for the 25's.... ---------------- Congrats, you got lucky...only thing is you should have purchased their entire inventory because you would have at least doubled your money! My store new about the error before they opened..the Mgr is anal.

    WOW! That is low!!
  10. Well I am no longer a Klipsch owner but I still like Klispch speakers and I do at least own an Aragon Soundstage. https://home.comcast.net/~bentvalve/
  11. ok its still available as several folks have backed out or not gotten back to me ......and the price is lowered.
  12. Heck i'd be happy with 5 Academy's , this is a nice sounding speaker! Unfortunately I just dont have the room for the speakers it matches with except the Heresy II so I am probably going to sell it after all.
  13. I picked up and Academy center for a good price and was just going to use it for a short while while I am between speakers then resell it but I may consider keeping it if I can find some mains to go with it. Reading up on it at Klipsch.com I see it matches with the Chorus II, Cornwall II , Forte II and Quartet. Does it match well with any others such as Heresys or? I just sold my RF-3IIs and RC-3II mains and center, I switched out every component on my rack trying to get the RF-3IIs to work out for 2 channel music and it just did not pan out. I was not planning on going with Klipsch speakers but if I can get a nice combination going with the Academy then maybe I will try Klipsch one more time.
