  1. Good question, Jeff. I thought that the discussion was as civil as one would imagine also. The only thing I can think of is that the last few posts I read used an abbreviated form of a term for a nationality that in this hypersensitive PC world might have caused either a reaction from someone, or the perceived threat of a reaction from the administrators of this board. I hope that I am wrong (it certainly would not be the first time) but as you said, either we missed something or the French have a term for it: "I don't know what."
  2. I would imagine it would make them sound differently. The tweeters are now vertical, changing the dispersal pattern. This would be the most obvious difference. Since you are using a sub I am not sure how bass response would differ.
  3. The Pusher-- steppenwolf Next: Darkness at the break of noon Shadows even the silver spoon The handmade blade, the child's balloon Eclipses both the sun and moon To understand you know too soon There is no sense in trying
  4. Federal reserve regulations specify the maximum float allowed. I believe that today that figure is three days.
  5. I am still looking for Quartets if anyone has a pair for sale. The guy in Tulsa never communicated to make a deal and today I see them here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=5852161062&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT Hopefully someone will have a pair within driving distance of Denton, Texas. Thanks to all.
  6. I totally agree with you on the location of the diamond logo. They should have asked us about it. []However, I do think it looks great overall & like the veneer. I want one! Hopefully in 10 years I'll find one on Craigslist. (yea right) I appreciate Klipsch keeping these speakers going (esp. adding the Cornwall to the re-releases) & not ditching them in favor of tall skinnies that need a sub. Fat girls make the rockin' world go 'round.....
  7. really! they were at Monterrey Pop? I guess between Hendrix and Joplin I must have gone to pee. Oh well, nothing lost.
  8. D-man and edwin what can I say? I have noticed in the last few months how much Klipsch and its People do for the people on this forum(yearly pilgrimages for example and if anyone has talked to Tech Support and how they will go out of their way to help for example I called Tech Support and spoke with Stephen Philips late one evening about the older crossovers and as we were finishing talking I realised he had stayed well past his quitting time.). People have talked of the support for the Heritage Line wasn't what it should be But I say these days business is hard and the going mentality is Older Technology isn't good and alot of companies give in to the lets introduce something new to keep sales up whether its really an improvement. Klipsch is working to hold onto the Heritage Line and I honestly don't think many companies do that these days. I've owned Klipsch since 1987 and have had the privilage of a tour of the Hope Factory twice in the early 1990s. Back then I got to know Ginney Sanders and Jim Hunter also who personelly helped me when I had some problems with some La Scalas I had bought and they tried to arrange a meeting with PWK on one of those tours I was given but unfortunatley I just missed him. ALSO for those that will understand this after years of wanting and finally getting my 1979 Khorns(bought in 1990) and can appreciate the Genius of PWK's Design, Build Quality, Craftmanship and The letters stamped U.S.A. on the back of them then yes I do take pride in owning such a High Quality Product both then and now. So again I will say Thanks to Klipsch for being the kind of company with the kind of people that will treat a customer such as me so well over so many years!!! mike[] Plus it is hard to argue with a chihuahua.
  9. Putting alot of chrome on a Pinto isn't going to make it a Porche. Not better - it's worse. _______________________________ No but it might make it more fire proof.............
  10. Think of Ned from South Park singing Kumbaya and you get the picture.....
  11. Interestingly enough, the experiments you speak of are being toyed with by today's youngsters. So maybe Klaatu has had more influence on them than the Beatles.
  12. Not really a rant, just your version of history. The looping and scratching was started way before the end of the 90's though. Take MC Hammer's "You Can't Touch This" for example. A pure Rick James line with dancing and a one phrase lyric. Even before that there was "Just the two of us" which in its chord progression sounds a lot like 50 ways to leave your lover. Yeah disco sucked for rockers but punk was already gaining ground before disco became overbearing. Nice synopsis Pauln.
  13. Lead me through tortured dreams childhood themes of nights alone
  14. the scary part is that my memory for lyrics is what it used to be, and that ain't (oh man i just said ain't) good. ______________________________________________- the carrot is better than the stick, but in this case, the carrot is a stick
  15. ok edit here, my bad. My life's course is guided decided by learned strong (some say limits drawn) _______________________________ parentheses represent alternate lyrics
