  1. Since JWC and I are strong on the idea that potential natural ACOUSTIC improvement at the more critical 300-500 Hz. range by adding reflectors, thereby mating with the upper end, I would say hold off until you have exhausted all the improvements that can be made with PEQ FIRST! Then go back for a second look if those other things don't work for your ears. I think the curves you posted look very encouraging to going with the PEQ route with your Xilica.
  2. Or, just build a tapped horn to stand up against a wall. Paint it the same color so it "dissapears." Then just feel the energy below 60 hz.
  3. I have never forgotten "21% Prime is a Crime" under Carter, who was the nicest guy, but the worst President. I had to pay 16 3/4 % on my home Mortgage and Note. We eventually refinance twice as the interest rates came back down, but that took a big chunks of our budget, as my wife had to work, and me with on full time and one part time job. I also remember how Iran quickly gave up the hostage crisis, as soon as Reagan was elected by a landslide. He was not afraid to push the button, so to speak. Now Iran is messing with US worse than ever. I was just glad to see a hard driving BUSINESSMAN at the helm instead of yet another frikkin' Lawyer/politician, who have always been on the receiving side of a paycheck instead of having to create jobs! (No offense meant to Lawyers who buy Klipsch speakers, of course). FYI, my baby girl was all A's from K-College Senior, High Honors grad with 3.9 and holding 2 jobs. She got a job in 2010, one of the few kids that did, with full salary and a company car. Yes, I'm the proud dad for all my kids who have done so well. Congrats on your girl!
  4. I'm sorry I posted this, but I really like Dennis Prager's videos. Geez, and I though I was being politically neutral. I'm a Libertarian after all. I doubt that any with the harsh comments even watched it, which makes me care even less.
  5. Not sure what's relevant about Google's 99% biased employees (Including Sergei) leaning left and controlling and censoring the Conservative viewpoints. They even put the 10 Commandments in the Pornography category because of "thou shalt not kill" because it's about murder. They are a MONOPOLY, but it will be a while before the lazy Congress does anything about it.
  6. https://www.c-span.org/video/?462661-1/google-censorship You can fast forward toward the end for Dr. Robert Epstein. A real eye opener.
  7. It's about time. I've been adding new tweeters to all Klipsch speakers for over 12 years now. I remember my initial factory tour back in 1985, where one of the workers said to me: "Changes come real slow at Klipsch." No kidding.
  8. Yes, and I only read Playboy for the articles!
  9. Overall a positive review, with the usual Blah, blah, blah, BS that is the "Audio Golden Ear Prose," typical of those magazines.
  10. Never. It was fun to be part of the evolution on your dime! But I do think you should try JWC's modification. I believe it would improve the high end of the woofer acoustically between 300-400 Hz. Now you know why I wanted you to make the backs removable.
  11. I agree. It's just about as boring as saying Brigitte Bardot looks old now because she is old!
  12. Even Liz Taylor got old. So what's your point? Look at Clint Eastwood. A young lady I know who works in my local video store said: "Clint Eastwood's not looking too good in his latest movie, The Mule." I replied: "Sure, but he's almost 90 years old. We should look that good if we live that long!" Other than Raquel Welch who still looks good past 70?
  13. Yes, and with only 8 watts, they will do plenty of ripping at around 115 db!
  14. Paul Voight invented the Tractrix horns in the 1930's in England. He also came up with the Lowther driver for his corner horn, which are now used in Transmission line/backloaded horns, 1/4 wave pipe, and open baffle systems today. There is a Voight corner horn in the Klipsch Museum in Hope.
