  1. Foolin around with suspect science when you should be concentrating on the sonic benefits of gergerbles.

    Is that that Russian spy chic who was cozening up to the NRA guys.
  3. Welcome. The Heresy 1's have a very simple crossover. However, after all this time the capacitors are past their prime and should be replaced as part of your refresh. You can use modern capacitor replacements, but with the heresy 1's I own, I used NOS (new old stock) Russian PIO (paper in oil) caps. Paul Klipsch designed these using PIO caps and in my opinion, which has never been proven to be wrong, they will sound the best. Electronically that's about all you should need to do to these speakers.
  4. Software manipulation of the sound. Why not just call them Bosebuds.
  5. No Heritage. Just small stuff. I doubt you'd have to be a dealer to sell these Klipsch products: https://www.costco.com/CatalogSearch?dept=All&keyword=klipsch
  6. Sounds like a rough patch indeed. I hope you both do well.
  7. Stopped in Costco today only to spot Klipsch Model KHO-7 outdoors speakers. They are half the price they are offered for on the Klipsch website. A search of the Costco website reveals that they are carrying seven other Klipsch products. This is a good thing.
  8. True story, which I think I've mentioned on the Forum before. I'm away at college, run out of clean laundry and figure it's time to go visit Mom. So I load up a pillow case with stinky stuff and hitch a ride home. Arrive at dusk. Walk up to my front door. No lights on. Gee they must be out. Put my key in the door. It doesn't turn. Look through the windows and the place is empty! They thought they'd ditch me but I tracked them down. Kind of a weird way to say goodbye to the home you grew up in. I'm sure they told me they were moving but it obviously didn't register. I was in college and my thoughts were focused on things like girls and beer, and I'm pretty sure there were something called classes in there somewhere.
  9. Beta Tau Epsilon. It no longer exists. Back in the later 50's national fraternities were banned from all State University of New York campus's, mostly over their racism towards Jews. So Beta was a local fraternity confined to one campus. This that and the other thing, including the 60's man, lead to its demise from lack of recruitment in the mid 1970's.
  10. The other is from one of my favorite popular historians. Another Brit. This isn't his best work but still a well written synopsis of Napoleon's campaigns from 1805 until the end. If you are into military history please read his books about Verdun, and the Algerian Revolution. You will thank me.
  11. Finished up two books this week. This one was written by one of my fraternity brothers. A British thriller:
  12. When I went away to college my parents moved. Their new address was Abbey Road, Town of Onondaga, NY. Funny nobody steals that road sign anymore but back in the day, it was stolen all the time. Hell, I think I may have even stolen it. Given my affinity for Da Beetles, I'm pretty sure it was subjected to urinary cleansing.
  13. I like racks. There's Bettie, there's Boopsie, there's...
  14. Maybe new ones but don't buy used for this product. The failure rates on these pods is very great. Crap components from China.
  15. Sorry I'm wrong. The pod they have is for the ProMedia THX system not the GMX 2.1 system. Anyways, here's a link to the pod but it appears that you might not be able to buy them anymore. I'd check with Klipsch themselves to see if they have any left in stock: https://www.klipsch.com/products/klipsch-promedia-2-1-computer-speakers?model=control-pod
  16. 1st time was when he woke me up out of a sound sleep on the last morning of Woodstock. Second time was late Spring, early summer of 1970 at Syracuse War Memorial a month or two before he died. I've seen some magnificent guitarists over the years. To name just a few: Muddy Waters BB King Albert King Keb Mo Buddy Guy Keith Richards Eric Clapton Peter Townson Neil Young Al Dimeola and the best of them all: Paco de Lucia
  17. I do like those caps, but with paper cones you know they'll need replacing, plus no horns!
  18. Here's the link. I think I"ll pass. Paper cones. Beware. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-high-end-speakers-audiophile-grade/303415249931?hash=item46a4f54c0b:g:wiYAAOSwdz9eASUc

    Love the cross hatch, but is that a before dinner snack?

    Yeah! Happy Birthday! Now would go ruining it by acting responsibly. Come'on , a little surf and turf on the side. You deserve it. Your heart deserves it. Your stomach deserves it! Me, this is typical side salad. Lettuce, cukes, sweet pepper, Campari tomats, fresh Basil grown by me, and a imported Pomegranate vinegar, topped with croutons. The fatso main course is lurking off camera.
  23. 103 years old. She was one of the voices of that time, and it's a great song.

    I like em that way. Also overcooked roasted asparagus (lemon, pepper, coarse sea salt, olive oil) with lamb topped with fresh rosemary that I grew.
