  2. Welcome to the Forum. You may want to indicate what part of world you are in. Dallas?
  3. Give it awhile, you should have lots of responses by this evening. Lot of long time fans and owners of RF-7II here, and lots of crossover network knowledge on this.
  4. I moved this to Talkin Tubes so OP might get more response. There is a link from original post in Two Way to this thread so people will know where it went.
  5. Welcome to the Forum! If you want to post photos and your listing in the Garage Sale section you can, or I can move your post there. The Alerts section is a way Forum members let other members know when Klipch items are for sale on outside locations like Craigslist or ebay, usually they are not affiliated. Garage Sale is for people such as yourself who have Klipsch or audio equipment for sale. Either place is fine, but you may get more response in Garage Sale. Other folks here can give you their thoughts and suggestions as well. Travis
  6. That was an awesome series. Conviction Integrity Units are an essential thing. Patricia Cummings (featured in the Philadelphia episode) is a good friend of mine.
  7. On the crossovers, the Klipsch authorized repair/replacement dealer is: Edit: It seems to me that now it'sJEM PERFORMANCE AUDIO https://support.klipsch.com/hc/en-us/articles/360036957831-Heritage-Crossover-Repairs I'm not sure if they sell kits if you want to DIY it, but you can give them a call. They use same parts as KGI if you want to keep it original.
  8. Welcome to the Forum! You will get lost of responses here.

  10. Note to self. Do not allow feedback, of any kind, on platform that sells poison dog food and exploding batteries. Where were most of those two wheel hover boards sold that were catching fire?
  11. They for sure set and control pricing, Paul Jacob's spoke about this at Pilgramage in 2016 and advised they were pulling out of Amazon. Short term would be a hit, long term a positive. I think, not sure, Amazon came back and said they had reconsidered their concerns.
  12. Welcome to the Forum!. I have moved this to the General section because I believe you will get more responses, and faster. Travis @HDBRbuilder may have actually built those, we will see.
  13. You have to know the evolution. Before MacPherson in about 1905, you could sue the dealer you bought a truck from if it was defective, but not the car maker or a supplier whose product was the item that actually was the problem, like the maker of a wheel that goes onto the truck. You could only sue who you bought truck from. This was because a case in England that said you had to be in privity. It became part of our Common Law. Winterbottom, about a postman. Common law is judge made law. It's drawing lines on how far should liability extend beyond parties to a transaction
  14. They do if they get into canonical law.
  15. Welcome to the Forum. You will get a lot of response on your questions.
  16. I agree, I think the problem for Amazon is their agreement exerts too much control, specifically, pricing. Amazon can say anything it wants about its business model, just as Uber can, the court is going to look behind that and determine if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, looks like a duck, etc. Seems way to thin to me to impose liability for a battery that exploded months later on Amazon, but I don't wear a black dress. What is Amazon? A delivery company? A broker? Facilitator? Middleman? Consignor? Wonder what Restatement says about consignors, or an auctioneer (they don't take title either). Title? So I set up a shell company, I'm just a warehouse.I get dog food from China and batteries. I make very clear to those companies I'm not taking title to anything. Risk of loss is on them. I will store their goods for a fee, and arrange to send it wherever they want me to send their deadly dog.food and batteries. Then I provide a platform where people can order exploding batteries, and deadly dog food. I make money on storage, I make some money on shipping and handling, and I also get a cut of what I sell through my platform (which is full of disclaimers and other legal mumbo jumbo that says when the other guy's battery blows up, or food kills your dog, you agree to hold me harmless and only seek recovery against the title holders/manufacturers). It's been so long since I looked at any of this but privity of contract (title) seemed.to go by the wayside with strict liability in tort (Buick v. McPherson maybe?) and a great lawyer somewhere argued as between an innocent plaintiff, and those who make, distribute and sell a dangerous product who can spread risk, an innocent plaintiff should recover as a matter public policy. When there was a free market, so to speak, in products liability law, and lawyers could lawyer, the market function seemed to work so much more efficiently. What if the battery was sold on Ebay? Thinner still to me. UPS who delivered it, thinner still. Travis
  17. Bummer, I'm going to have to get a G rated card instead of R rated card.
  18. Here is the decision. California has long had chain of distribution liability. They even created market share liability in drug cases. "As a factual and legal matter, Amazon placed itself between Lenoge and Bolger in the chain of distribution of the product at issue here. Amazon accepted possession of the product from Lenoge, stored it in an Amazon warehouse, attracted Bolger to the Amazon website, provided her with a product listing for Lenoge’s product, received her payment for the product, and shipped the product in Amazon packaging to her. Amazon set the terms of its relationship with Lenoge, controlled the conditions of Lenoge’s offer for sale on Amazon, limited Lenoge’s access to Amazon’s customer information, forced Lenoge to communicate with customers through Amazon, and demanded indemnification as well as substantial fees on each purchase. Whatever term we use to describe Amazon’s role, be it “retailer,” “distributor,” or merely “facilitator,” it was pivotal in bringing the product here to the consumer."
