  1. As a side note, the RF-7s fit comfortably in my wife's 300m. I folded the back seats down, put one in the trunk laid parallel to the long way of the car and the other one laid west-east in what is the back seat area. At first glance I didn't think they'd fit, but they fit with plenty of room to spare. (Just a little FYI in case anyone ever needs to make a road trip)
  2. I live in St. Cloud. I actually delivered the RF-7s in the Home Depot parking lot in Plymouth today! Thanks for the offer, I've always wanted to hear a pair of Khorns!
  3. After selling them on eBay and having the buyer who lives in Indiana have a friend who lives 65 miles from me meet me to pick them up, my RF-7s are gone. I know that when I first bought them I started a thread on here about a pair of speakers that I will have forever. Well, I guess forever ended up being 14 months. If I hadn't found the incredible deal on the near mint pair of oiled oak Forte IIs ($275), I know I would still have the RF-7s. The one issue I had with them was that they are finicky speakers as far as amps go. I didn't have the time nor the $$ to be able to experiment with different amps until I found the one that was 'just right.' I had powered them with a vintage Harman/Kardon HK730 twin powered receiver to a mid 90s Sony Dolby-Prologic receiver to my most recent Harman/Kardon HK3480 2 channel amp. They definitely sounded the best with the vintage HK. In fact if I ever get a shot at an old Twin Powered receiver again I might just pick one up and use my HK3480 as a pre-amp. It was nice to get them out of my basement and free up some space. I will miss their in-your-face rock-and-roll no-holds-barred performance. It was a tough decision to choose the Forte IIs over the RF-7s. In the end, the sweet midrange of the Fortes and the fact that they are smaller and much easier to move around won me over. I hope the new owner is able to enjoy them.
  4. Does anything appear loose inside the port or inside the subwoofer itself when the woofer is out? Is there a chance that your gain control or your sub level got messed up accidentally? Also, there is a separate subwoofer section to help you out better on here: http://forums.klipsch.com/forums/8/ShowForum.aspx
  5. In fact they have the sub you're looking at right now discounted $50 if you click on the 'Site Map' button at www.svsubwoofers.com and then click on 'B-Stock' B-Stock Model SB12-Plus-black Product ID: b-SB12-Plus-black Number in Stock: 1 Price: $649.00 [Add to Wishlist]
  6. If you don't blast your music the SVS should keep up with the RF-7s just fine. Something that has helped a lot of people is to get a decibel meter and a calibration DVD or CD and use that to set the gain and crossover levels on the subwoofer. SVS sometimes sells refurbished items on their site for a bit less than new, and there are great deals on SVS subs to be had on eBay and audiogon as well.
  7. Having only heard the RF-83 I would say that both would do a number on your eardrums in a short period of time. Max spl on the Khorn is 121dB according to Klipsch, not sure about the RF-83 but I would think its probably about the same.
  8. If you go SVS you'll hear more deep bass than you probably have ever heard with any other subwoofer. It extends the useable frequency range of most systems a couple octaves lower. It isn't going to be as big of an impact with music (unless you listen to techno or pipe organ) but especially for movies you will be blown away. Zuzu, I think your shelf idea would work, although you might have to do a lot of tweaking with the phase knob on the subwoofer to get it to blend best with your other speakers. If you get the sub, take your time and have someone help you out with adjust the crossover and phase so that it sounds best to you. An hour's time getting everything dialed in just right is worth it!
  9. I think he means that the black Fortes are easier to find in that more people bought them because black is a more neutral color and is easier to blend with other room furnishings than oak or walnut can be. I don't have anything in my room that's even remotely close to being the same color wood as my Fortes, but do you think I care? NO WAY! []
  10. Lookin' good Roc! I love the color of the walnut Fortes! I wish my room was as wide as that! Your room looks to be about twice as wide as mine. Very cozy accutrements as well. I would spend a lot of time in that room.
  11. The SVS CS cylinder series which is unpowered might be what you're looking for. They'll extend the bass of your system flat down to 16Hz or lower depending on the model that you go with.
  12. What kind of sub are you using? I think that audible vibrations might occur if you put the sub on a shelf, but you can always try it out and see. Is there a reason why it has to be in the equipment stand instead of on the floor?
  13. I think you could probably find a nice sub cable that costs a lot less than $300. A sub's placement in the room is critical to how loud it sounds and how well it blends with the other speakers and how it interacts with the room itself. There's no way to know what setup is best unless you try experimenting with different places. Putting it in a corner will increase the output quite a bit but the tradeoff is that many times it will sound too boomy or will create large peaks and valleys in the lower bass frequency range. Do you have a entertainment center that you could place it behind or beside so that it wasn't as noticeable?
  14. Enclosures and crossovers are designed around specific woofers and drivers. If you start changing things your results will probably not be what you want them to be. A good upgrade to the bass would be to sell the Heresy's and use the money towards a set of speakers such as Fortes or Chorus.
  15. I'm going to try and hit up some garage sales here this year. Some of the small towns around where I live have a city-wide garage sale event one weekend a year. Problem is I don't know exactly what to look for as far as electronics but it will be fun any way!
  16. Heresy or Forte if you're lucky. (If you don't mind pre-owned)
  17. No, I've had her for 6 years. I just was messing around with different avatars.
  18. Well, they ended for $746.00. I had hoped to get between 700 and 800 for them. The high bidder has a friend who lives an hour away from me that I'll be delivering them to, so no worries about shipping them! They will be missed, but my Forte IIs will ease the pain of the loss. []
  19. Ending in a couple hours!! []
  20. +2 for Pomp & Pipes. If you've got a capable sub it will shake your rafters loose!
  21. 'Nuff said! That's the most depressing comment I have heard yet! What's wrong with a drummer who likes Klipsch? [^o)]
