  1. Subwoofer/Speaker Delay.....

    Thanks Rob. I'll check out mtg90 over at AVS. In the meantime, I just hooked it up so that I was able to delay the subs, rather than the mains through the DEQ2496. Same story. I much prefer no delay one way or the other in my room. When the mains and the subs are the same distance, everything just locks right in. It was fun experimenting though.

  2. Subwoofer/Speaker Delay.....

    I just realized that I should be able to use the DEQ 2496 that I already have to be able to do this. So I should be able to try this sooner rather than later. Would still like some opinions on this. In particular, is this an option when using the Mini-DSP? Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  3. It's been quite a while since I've had an AVR and I'm pretty foggy on how I used to use the delays. Now, I have a two-channel setup and I'm able to use my DEQ 2496 to delay the mains. I've found that I prefer to not delay the mains at all in my room. I would like to experiment with delaying the subs behind the mains. I'll have to get another gizmo to be able to do this (it will not be an AVR) and was wondering if anyone here does this with any success. If this makes no sense at all let me know. I just know that in my room, delaying the mains degrades the sound quality in my room. So I thought I might try delaying the subs instead. Thanks. [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  4. Funny you brought this up. Today I was just thinking that I should consider changing the thick, heavy curtains I have on the window behind my sweet spot. I originally got them to deal with any brightness and they worked very, very well. However, now with the A-55G's I'm wondering if they are necessary anymore. The warmth and fullness the 55G's throw out there....gonna have to do some experimenting. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  5. Since I picked up a second Crown K2, I've just been punishing these 30's! This morning, full throttle....the highs were just nasty. No bass. So I adjusted my audiophile clamps from HD and WHOA NELLY!!! I got the dreaded 'knocking' and 'whacking' sound. From BOTH speakers. So instead of clamping from the sides I clamped the front and back. Good to go! I proceeded to rock hard and gotta tell ya....when KLF-30'S aren't falling apart before your very eyes, they are amazing. This winter gonna fix em up proper but in the meantime I'm having fun with my clamps. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk

  7. SVS B4 Plus...

    Yeah, those SVS's were incredible for movies even though they had help from a pair of RSW-15's and a pair of 15" Velodynes..... but it was the SVS's that were responsible for making the floor buckle and felt like the couch was raising up off the floor. Those suckers could really pressurize my room. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  8. SVS B4 Plus...

    https://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/ele/d/svs-b4-plus/6253521817.html I used to have PB-12 Ultra/2's and this is one sub I always wanted to check out. Anyone here ever owned/heard one of these? Very tempting.... Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk

  11. DAC's

    Yeah, it just came back to me. Carl's positve comments on the Maverick were what got me to buy it. In fact, I bought two. [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  12. DAC's

    I have that Maverick Audio D2 DAC and really like it. Especially for the relatively cheap price of admission. I did some tube rolling and upgraded to discrete op-amps. Worth the extra money putting the total cost of the DAC right around $500.00. I believe there are a few others here with the D2 that have been happy as well. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  13. Has anybody tried the 12" woofers from Crites yet in a pair of 30's? Gonna fix up my 30's in my basement system and will start with x-overs from Bob. The woofers in them are fine....I replaced them a few years ago with the K-31 E version. It was all Klipsch had left at the time. The 30's in my main system have the original K-31's and are fine as far as I can tell. I'd just like to have an extra set on hand just in case. Curious if anyone has compared the orginals to Crites' version. Crites version, if I recall correctly work in the Heresy, Jubilee and the KLF-30. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk

    I know how to listen to it. Fricken awesome subs.[emoji106] Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  15. What I Got Today!

    The first K2 I got a few years ago sounds great on my KLF-30'S but not as good as I thought it would on my subs. Next weekend I'll try the K2 I just picked up on my subs. A K2 on the mains and a K2 on the subs should gel pretty good. In the meantime, my EP4000 and/or the Macrotech 3600vz sound phenomenal powering the subs. Love these old school Crown amps.[emoji106] Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
