  1. I have no direct experience with them, but they simulate extremely well in tapped-horns.
  2. Started out as a level ceiling, but Roy got a little too enthusiastic with bass EQ. 😀
  3. https://stlouis.craigslist.org/ele/d/eureka-heritage-klipsch-heresy-speakers/7035598165.html No affiliation.
  4. Lately I've been experimenting with exactly that. I have the ability to switch between 2 (phantom center), 3 (true center), 4 (phantom center with surround), or 5 (true center with surround) channels on-the-fly. I find that 4 channels works best in my room with my system. Using the center brings the soundstage too far forward, almost like the vocalist is sitting in my lap. If my mains were spread really far apart, then the center would probably help, but they're only spread about 60° so the center is not necessary.
  5. Ah, Alice. I never bothered with such foolishness -- usually went home over St. Patrick's Day. Though one year I watched in amusement when my housemates dyed the dog green.
  6. Tempted. But I need another pair of speakers like I need another hole in my head. Have only been to Rolla once since I graduated from there in '82.
  7. For my main listening room, everything is active. In my other rooms, simplicity is key, and analog still reigns. Here's before and after when I added a Zobel to a tweeter, with help from DATS and SPICE (for circuit analysis).
  8. I've been doing both, lately. DATS made it all very easy. Also great for designing Zobel networks.

  10. Not sure how this could happen with an HDMI connection, but from your description it sounds like the left and right channels are out-of-phase. If the soundbar adds the left and right input channels to produce the center output channel, then anything that is in both of them (such as vocals) will cancel if they are out-of-phase.
  11. The finish won't affect the sound. As long as the drivers are good, the enclosure is solid, and the price is right, they are true Klipschorns. That said, if the photos are any indication, they are gorgeous.
  12. Yes, allpass compensation is necessary in any Linkwitz-Riley crossover having more than two passbands. See response from Greg Berchin (who is actually me) here: https://www.dsprelated.com/showthread/comp.dsp/112896-1.php As for a ramping filter, not sure what you mean. Is that commonly called a shelving filter? If so, then I use them occasionally in place of peaked-highpass filters to boost bass, because they have better phase response.
  13. Just to be pedantic; not all IIR filters are minimum phase, and the best example of a nonminimum phase IIR filter may be an allpass filter.
  14. That's almost as good as the old Joly Website. Anybody else remember Joly?
  15. Does his system include a tinfoil hat? ... With a ground wire, of course.
