  1. For Sale: Altec 19's

    It is well regarded on the High Efficiency Speaker forum.
  2. DSP options for your Pro Klipsch Audio

    You meant to say going ACTIVE, not passive, right?
  3. DSP options for your Pro Klipsch Audio

    I should add that Xilica is a CANDIAN company, so may be a bit easier for you to get since you are not crossing the border with fees, shipping, etc.
  4. Why not use an Inuke as a main power amp?

    Hypex NC-400 Mono Blocs. It's in my signature. Look again.

  5. Why not use an Inuke as a main power amp?

    Yes, I've read almost all of Bruno Putzey's white papers on all things Hypex. He really knows what he's doing!
  6. Why not use an Inuke as a main power amp?

    You may be right as not all Class D amps sound the same. But for sheer NEUTRALITY, POWER, MICRO DETAILS, DYNAMICS, LOW NOISE, ETC. nothing beats my Hypex Class D amps. I've owned just about all of the others. Tubes and classes alike.
  7. WTB Single K55V, K77

    I have a round K-77.............PM me.
  8. Raising P.S. Capacitance

    You will have greater turn on surge as the caps charge. It may sag your line voltage for a very short time, but no worries.
  9. Best DIY subwoofer?

    I can't disagree on that note. 4 of those and a Behringer will set you back about $2,000 and you will have perfectly balanced bass from all 4 walls or 4 corners.
  10. Super Heresy 1 (Baby Cornwalls Mod.)

    While I do appreciate the effort here, again, different is NOT the same. When I plug that woofer into my modeling software, I can see the effect of the smaller magnet, which is a lower BL product, even though the cone mass is similar. What this means is you won't get the same FAST MIDRANGE response/handoff to the mid horn and driver, which is a BIG part of the magic for the Super Heresy Mod and also the reason why I did it to begin with originally. The ported bass response turned out to be a big, pleasant surprise but not the original intent. So the emphasis, on this lower BL will be more towards the bass and less towards the midrange "tilt" in the response. It's also a few DB less efficient, so it will throw off the Xover balance also. Again, there's a good reason why Klipsch chose to use the K-42 as their "Pro Woofer" for the Pro Heresy variants in the past. Whether the K-42 was made by EV or Eminence, it had the same specifications from Klipsch. This is why I recommend the Eminence Delta pro, which is, essentially, a K-42 without the Klipsch name. So if you are after the exact same performance as Jim Jimbo's now famous Super Heresys (I sold my other 3 to another friend), then going to a different woofer than my original recommendation has it's compromises, which are UNTESTED by me. I don't intend to build any of those myself and if you do, you are on your own............especially if the results are not as big of an improvement as you expect. You have been warned.
  11. I always measured 13 ohms on all the ones I had, which is quite a few.
  12. Super Heresy 1 (Baby Cornwalls Mod.)

    Those are in great shape. Nice. BTW, the Pre-1980 Heresys, Cornwalls, etc. used the same Poplar Core Veneers as the Khorn fronts. FYI, and NOT crappy, cheap MDF. Also, my first pair of Khorns, as a "kid" were KCBR's 1977 which were made of Baltic Birch inside and out and weighed 20 more pounds than the older fir plywood Khorns. I sold them to a friend with the option of buying them back someday. I put some Formby's Tung Oil on those things AFTER I had polished the raw wood with #0000 Steel wool, the most beautiful birch finish you ever saw. But these Walnut Heresys really are super nice. Pun intended.
  13. Super Heresy 1 (Baby Cornwalls Mod.)

    Are you building some also?? Or have you done it already?
  14. Super Heresy 1 (Baby Cornwalls Mod.)

    Always good to read this kind of stuff. I have owned many pairs of Heresy's over the years. Now trying to see if adding twin 5" ports on KP-250's will extend the bass a tad more, but I still think the best mod I ever did, YOU OWN.
  15. Super Heresy 1 (Baby Cornwalls Mod.)

    OK, so I woke up this morning and realised that, based on intuition and experience, using the Dayton PA310-8 woofer, not only save you money, but PROBABLY, you can just do a woofer swap with the original K-22, cut a hole in the back, glue in the port, and you PROBABLY won't have to do anything at all to the E network. You will just have better BASS, which is the #1 issue with old Heresy 1's. Talk about "too easy." So thanks to Karlson3 for the discovery. It might become a really good solution for some DIY modders. It's my hope that if any of you do this, you will report here with measurements and listening impressions. Thanks in advance. That being said, the original Heresy is 3 db more efficient and probably the better of the two mods, I guess one gets what they pay for, but this may be better AND good enough of an improvement for the budget conscious.
