  1. It's all about the synergy between your gear, speakers, room and YOUR melon. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  2. That's cool. I did pretty much the same upgrades to my KLF-30's. Despite what some may think, the sound is the same as the original speaker only it is performing properly. 100%. No aging, failing parts or components due to cheaping out from the factory. The only thing I changed back to original was the tweeters. The MAHL tweeters were too hot for my taste. However, I have two pair of 30's and the pair in my main system have the original tweeters (with titanium diaphragms) and the other pair in my 'Balls Out' system still have the MAHL tweeters because at loud volumes they seem to be more suitable. A little more aggressive but staying smooth at high volumes. I dig it. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  3. My ears. I've had all of them in my room. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  4. I don't think a KLF-20 vs a Cornwall is a fair comparison. A Cornwall vs a KLF-30 would be a more fair comparison. The KLF-20 can be a nice speaker but compared to a Cornwall it's simply a smaller speaker with a smaller sound. Not in the same league as far as overall presentation.

  5. That looks great. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  6. Could be the next thing. Take a ride on my Khorn. Live a little.... Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  7. It would be interesting to see what mods he does to his Klipsch. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  8. Speakers associated with rockets, flamethrowers etc.......probably pretty cool. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  9. Do your 20's still have the original crossovers? Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  10. That construction adhesive is hard core. It ain't going anywhere. Besides, I wouldn't take a chance on running a screw into such thin walls on those cabinets. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  11. Exactly......as well as filling any voids. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  12. When I did my 30's several years ago, I just got what I could with the caulk gun and everywhere else I just shot the PL Premium on a glove or a small paint brush and worked it into the joints as well as for the added braces. I wasn't shy with it. More is better than not enough. Haven't had cabinet issues since. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  13. For peace of mind just glue those suckers and add a little front to back bracing while you're in there. It's cheap and easy to do.....and you don't need to be a journeyman carpenter to get the job done. IMO It's not necessary to remove the front and rear baffles (unless they're literally falling apart). Just finger or brush some heavy duty construction adhesive (PL Premium X3) in all the joints.

  14. What preamp are you using with it? Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  15. That's cool. I dig my Aegir. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  16. I should also mention that my opinion/experience is only with Klipsch speakers. Other types of speakers (JBL) I have no problem running flat or with no preamp. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  17. Several times I've tried to go direct without a preamp. It always sounds lame to me. I always seem to prefer a certain flavor that different preamps have. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  18. Maybe that's part of the reason why I've gotten such good results adding absorption and diffusion in my listening room. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  19. ....or just do a 180 in my listening position. That would be cool. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  20. If one has high frequency loss and can't hear high frequencies, how can they be sensitive to them in how they hear the music? Just trying to understand which was part of my original post. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  21. I can totally relate to that. My main system has a sweet spot established at 11 feet/equilateral triangle. I never listen loud in that room anymore. Loud volumes at that close of a distance is just annoying to me these days. However I have no problem cranking it in a secondary basement system that is a wide open area.

  22. Yes, I have a certain level of tinnitus/ear ringing. I am a heavy equipment operator and although I wear hearing protection 100% of the time, it's my understanding that vibration is something that can't be avoided and plays a detrimental role in this regard. Add that on top of years of loud concerts etc. In my own evaluation, I feel like I hear accurately but the mild ear ringing is merely a nuisance and distraction. Before I continue on and pretend that I'm not a deaf MFer like the rest of you guys......let's forget about hearing loss for a bit and let me crank this next song. Rock on.
