  2. Value of Belle Klipsch other questions.

    By the way I don’t know what networks you have but later Klipsch balancing networks offer more frequency spectrum shaping and less acoustical interaction between the drivers. miketn
  3. Value of Belle Klipsch other questions.

    FYI Access to the woofer chamber is from the bottom. Don’t think that is the cause of your issues though.
  4. Value of Belle Klipsch other questions.

    Non original drivers with stock networks not designed for them could cause many issues as well. miketn
  5. Value of Belle Klipsch other questions.

    This isn’t typical for the Belle. If these are used and new to you have you verified that all the drivers are connected properly and in correct polarity with the crossover especially if someone has been modifying and messing with them. miketn
  6. The fact is the Recordings and the whole Recording Process is not neutral and has no consistent standards so unless you have some method of compensating to some degree for this you are missing a good opportunity for a higher quality of reproduction from your system. The debate isn’t if we need Tone Controls it’s about what kind of flexibility will serve our individual needs the best depending on the quality level of compensation our individual goals might be. miketn

    Since when has that slowed us down around here....?

    Hmmm. So if one was to make sure the port side was against the side wall (assuming full length side walls and low enough crossover frequency used so that polar response wasn’t a concern) couldn’t that be similar to the floor orientation? miketn.

    I thought about this also jc and I believe it could be a very good option. Could open up some possibilities of improving room mode issues as well in the room. miketn
  10. Happy Birthday Old Man

    Thanks Trey Happy birthday PWK The respect and love often expressed by those that have actually spent time with him is a great testament to him as a person. miketn
  11. Audio Mags: Impressions

    I have perceived this "effect to sound reproduction" during modifications of some amplifiers I have done in the past. How amplifiers perform during complicated music signals versus the typical test measurements performed on them and shared with the public is part of the problem because these typical test simply don't reveal the complete performance characteristic that we have the ability to perceive IMHO. Audio Magazine during the time that Heyser and Keele were doing speaker testing there was excellent and very far ahead of the typical magazines of that time period. miketn

  13. Tube amp mods

    To minimize confusion and since Craig is familiar with your amp and the modifications he performed it would probably be best to give him time to respond to your situation. But definitely don’t continue to operate the amp this way. miketn
  14. Tube amp mods

    Wow..... Stop running the amp immediately the tubes and amp could suffer damage if continued.
  15. Tube amp mods

    To be clear the bias current you will need to use with the tube will vary based on any particular amps Plate to Cathode voltage drop across the tube. miketn
