    LaScala Subs Ideas

    I'd stick with a horn-loaded sub. It would blend in much better.
  2. I'm an imaging freak. The guy I bought my KHorns from wanted me to hear his 802D. They didn't image at all but he was very happy with the 'upgrade' over the KHorns. Got the KHorns home and they didn't image at all! Turns out one of the crossovers had the mid-driver wired in reverse polarity. Once that was sorted out they disappeared from the room. I'm sure that 802D properly setup can be awesome. Those I heard were not.
  3. I've got one of those too (60-inch F8500). Sweet picture. Inky blacks.
  4. The problem is that there is no such 'max'. The volume is gain requested, and what you think is requesting 125W peaks might be 1000W peaks, which will be clipped and sound bad, and may damage your speakers. Back in the day we had VU-meters to have a better guess at the power we were feeding our speakers. But I guess since people saw numbers of 1W or less often enough, that wasn't good information to give in order to sell new 100W+ receivers, so they got rid of them.
  5. I defeated the x-curve in my KPT-100 crossovers.
  6. I agree with the pro cinema line; I use X-Curve-defeated KPT-100. But without a rear wall to hang them on... you'll need something on stands? Or ceiling speakers?
  7. 'Watching' your viewing history, not literally watching you... Some TVs have cameras of course, which can be used to remote control the TV and for Skype. I don't use it on mine; too much of a hassle and I don't do much with my TV except turn it on and off and navigate Netflix.
  8. If you haven't heard them in the room, it's hard to draw conclusions. The room does soooo much.
  9. Does he want only people living in the US to answer?
  10. Honestly, if you are outputting to HDMI and watching Blurays, I don't see the point of anything beyond a sub-$100 Sony player. I have two. They have worked well for a few years. They are disposable if they ever break down. They gets the bits off the disk and onto the HDMI transport.
  11. Finally saw San Andreas. Minor nits that don't give away anything... Must he do everything? Fly the helicopter, hit the autopilot button and jump out to the rescue, really? Weren't there two SAR techs in the back seat, so the second one could have gone out? At the end, that boat propeller was indestructible! And it never tangled up any debris either. Ah well. There are much bigger gaps in the movie, but those little things bothered me.
  12. I have an Elunevision electric & tensioned AT screen and like it a lot. It comes down in from of a plasma 60-inch for movies, and partially blocks a door to a second media room that the kids use. So I don't leave it down when not in use. I have had it for a couple of years and have had no issues with it. Highly recommended. See my galley for pics.
  13. So relabeled Jamo. Had to happen sometime.
  14. Interesting. I have Bob's A-4500 in any case, so I can assume it's balanced... (happy Canadian turkey day!)
  15. Yes, that is what I have in my Super Heresy's currently. I also had a pair of those CT-125's in LaScalas I refurbished, where I dropped the midrange/K55 level on the Autoformer by 3 db to match, since the CT-125 is not efficient enough for a Khorn/Belle/LaScala. It's a really good sounding tweeter and it measures ruler flat to 20K for all other Klipsch Heritage, however. Huh? Bob sells it as in drop-in replacement for the K77 and you are saying it isn't?
  16. I don't use it a lot but it is a great little lens, very sharp, acts like a 70mm on a DX camera. I and everyone knows what you mean by that, but... no it doesn't. If this comment implies what I think it does, we are about to embark on a photographic argument worse than capacitors... LOL! I didn't know it was a hot button issue.

    I respectfully request

    Some people seem to be under the notion that gun violence happens in all western countries...

    All in one remote

    Nice thing about the Harmony remotes is pluging them into a computer via USB to program them from a list of equipment models.
  20. It could be fixed with bondo and re-veneered, but that would entail removing the very large side veneer as well as the easy to peel 1-inch edge. I really, really feel for you. :-(
  21. Just got the joke! Good one!
  22. Please, I'm really not "that" needy. That said, I've had time to work an interesting problem to something of a conclusion and will discuss it on the forum page of my site. I'll provide the link for those that are interested. I registered but can't find anything relevant. The 'Engineering Projects and Discussion' section is empty.
  23. Greetings sir! The green plot is something I've been noodling here. The K77M can actually remarkably good at higher sound pressure levels "if" you use the green curve. To use the green curve however requires other changes to occur and that's where things get very interesting. it's possible however to take the Klipschorn to a much better place without having to take a second mortgage out on your house. More on that later. Did I miss it?
