  1. for $99 you stole the RB-5s and I agree with everything The History Kid wrote about them...enjoy! Bill
  2. I believe it should be some open cell gray foam (If I am remembering correctly) and it is in there in no particular place beyond what you mention... Bill
  3. another excellent point...it is always good to know where the volume knob is pointed whenever turning on your rig no matter if you use the power conditioner auto power on or not... ...and I miswrote earlier the EICO is a combination Power and Treble switch it was my McIntosh MAC1900 that had the combination Power/Volume switch and I also used the power conditioner to start my listening... I've never had any issues using the power conditioner as the ON/OFF switch for either of the two ... Bill
  4. a good point or you can check and use DeOxit once in awhile...in my experience the switches tend to get scratchy when they need "cleaning" of oxidation...all good advice Bill
  5. I've not had any issues in 13 years with my EICO (it is not my only means of music listening but has been my main means for about the last year)... I have used a few different power conditioners (the box type not the strip)...one from Monster, one from Panamax and one now from APC...good luck with your choice. Bill
  6. I have an EICO HF-81 with the power/volume knob combo that can wear out and is impossible to find...I have left mine on a power conditioner since about 2006 without issue...I use the power on the power conditioner as the ON/OFF switch...is this what you were asking???...I don't see what the issue would be using the power switch on the power conditioner rather than the amplifier itself but would appreciate any thoughts someone might care to share... Bill
  7. thank you all for sharing these pics... Bill
  8. nice job Thaddeus...much appreciated and I also like the B&W photos... Bill
  9. the screws arrived from Parts Express...cost about as much to ship as the bag of 100 screws cost...about $17 bux...I followed the example above...removed grills, drilled out pegs on grills...removed plastic pieces from speaker receiving end...carefully screwed in screws...attached floating grills... I had to remove each once to adjust slightly the depth of the screws...these fit tight and I don't know how many times I would want to attach and remove the grills as the screws could strip out of the plastic pegs but overall it was worth it for my 3 missing pegs and the grills won't need to come on and off very often anyway... my brother has a set of RB-5s (actually I have two brothers with their own RB-5s) so I'm sure theirs will get the floating grill fix Bill
  10. if this works as you say, there are a lot of people you just made very happy...thanks...I may give this a try on my RB-5s Bill
  11. I know that when I have used an Academy or a KLF-C7 that they sounded close to my Heresys...I also know (to me of course) that my Center Heresy sounds perfect with my Heresy Mains... Having tried the KLF-C7 between my updated kg2s it also sounds close...using the KLF-C7 or the Heresy in between RB-5 lls sounded terrible...to the extent that I couldn't listen to it is a Home Theater setting either with music or movies... YMMV Bill
  12. I knew they wouldn't last long at that price...must have been bought sight unseen as she had told me they wouldn't be available until after work hours tonight...congrats as well to new owner hope they post on the Forum with pics Bill
  13. no affiliation...good luck
  14. I believe Dr Bill’s recipe is what Klipsch used but use what you like, your results may vary... Bill
  15. Dr. Bill's (not me) recipe': *remember fire hazard* BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil) heats up as it dries so any rags and whatnot should be thoroughly washed with water and soap and disposed of safely...preferrably outside... the Drs. recipe' IIRC: 3 parts Gum Turpentine to 1 part BLO...I found mine at Home Depot but should be able to find anywhere...good luck but wanted to share...Do only in a well ventilated area... Bill
  16. your take is interesting since I mentioned anyone can get the "secret" phone number proving there is no conspiracy and the black helicopter comment should further prove I was poking fun at it (unless Klipsch has taken to buying any black helicopters)...but whatever makes your world go 'round Bill
  17. except that everyone who wants to can know his number... the black helicopters are warming up on the tarmac... Bill
  18. to give you a good idea of how unobtrusive you are...I never knew you were a moderator until reading this...I just always liked your sense of fairness and evenhandedness... Thanks, Bill
  19. just my 2 cents but I have tried an Academy, a "popbumper'd" Academy, KLF-C7, KLF-C7 with Crites titanium tweeter modification and Heresy between my Heresy Mains and by far my Heresy (with Crites CT-125 tweeter in place of the K-77) and my Heresy Mains also have the CT-125 tweeters as well as new crossovers (well, new 10 years or so ago now) and nothing else I have tried has been better... That said I did mention what I've tried...and I've also tried RB-5s and Quartets as Mains... next was my KLF-C7 but honestly the difference in the KLF-C7 and the Academy was pretty close and at the time everyone wanted the world for Academys so... If yours are Heresy lls you can use the titanium tweeter mod but if they are Heresy ls you won't be able to use the titanium tweeter mod... Good luck with your choice...I really think you can't go wrong with any of your choices and I think you will like your Heresy home theater... Bill
  20. you've been around here long enough to know that isn't the case... Bill
  21. someone is getting a very nice set of speakers!...congrats to the new owner and the seller... Bill
  22. I wish you were closer too butI should be selling some rather than buying any and 8-9 hours...good luck with your sale Bill
