    Matching surround bipole for KPT-535

    W.D.S.T Klipsch Wide Dispersion Surround Technology surround speakers take a different approach to surround coverage than dipole and bipole surrounds. A Dipole models place drivers out of polarity to create a null on one axis of the speaker. It is popular to sit in the null, thus the loudest sounds come from indirect radiation from the speaker. A dipole, used in this manner creates a diffuse and non-localized rear sound field. 1) Some drawbacks to dipole surrounds include that the rear sound field is not confined to the rear. As much radiation is radiated forward as rearward. 2) A dipole also depends on other surfaces in the room to reflect the sound to the listener. 3) A dipole can only create a diffuse rear sound field. 4) Finally, a dipole is very inefficient at low frequencies, as the out of phase bass cancels. B Bipole models place drivers on several faces, with the idea that the radiation is equal in all directions, like a point source. 1) The problem is that the drivers interact, and actually radiate sound very erratically, with a different frequency response in each direction. 2) The sound field created is not coherent and as a result is not very realistic. C) Klipsch WDST surrounds are very much like a professional concert array. The high frequencies, made directional by the horn, are arrayed at the proper angles to provide even coverage, or with the same frequency response in all directions. The single woofer is crossed over where it is omni directional, thus creating a system that truly radiates sound equally in all directions. 1) WDST models provide balanced direct and reverberant sound field to listeners. Since the response is the same in all directions, the reverberant sound filed reaching the listeners from other directions, is balanced spectrally with the direct sound, creating a coherent, realistic rear sound field.

    Matching surround bipole for KPT-535

    first we don't make bi-pole speakers... Most any surround will work...we use both versions in the cinemas. KPT-1200VBM is what I use...LS III in front

    If you "hear" that, it is only distortion....you can't "hear" below about 30Hz. Remember I said about...

    We will see if that can happen. Roy is lazy....so who knows.

    Happy Birthday Old Man

    This is an open letter I sent to the company today...I wanted to share here too. Happy Birthday Paul W. Klipsch! I would love to tell the old man that a few more times. I have been to a few of his birthday parties. I think my favorite one was his 96th. My wife at the time and myself were invited to visit them at a friend of theirs home in Hot Springs. We met with Steve and Becky Phillips there. They had just been to Hope for the first Pilgrimage and received the invite from Mrs. Valerie. Once we all were there, we ate, talked and listened. That’s right, we set and listened to Khorns with PWK on his birthday. In my book that has a supper high cool factor. Not long after that, Klipsch offered Steve a job and he and family moved up to Indy and I made a new best friend. I would like everyone to take a min. to think about their job and that PWK made that posable. We owe a ton to that man and I for one am very thankful. When Paul passed, I told Valerie that Gabriel needed help with his horn so they called Paul up to help. I look forward to hearing that horn someday. Trey Cannon – Systems Engineer

    Mike, I DO NOT think that everyone has the same point of view. I know the stance of many of the LONG term members. Folks like yourself that I have worked with for years know me. I say how I feel and call it like I see it...(remember i only have 1 good eye, so things can get blurry Sometimes folks take things to personal. ( I know I do) I was trying to not be personal. What we all can agree on is we love how PWK's products allow us to live the music. I know for a fact that the guys at the top feel the same way. They always have there music going, just like us. The company has put a ton of cash in moving PWK's product into the forefront of sales. They took them all to CES this year for the first time in 20 years. There are special programs for sales for the dealers to use. The dealers that sale that product are narrowing...trying to focus on the product that built this company. You all should be proud of that. I am. I look forward to meeting up with all our friend in May.

    I will watch the gate...we have a ton of gators in the area that like to eat....We can "feed" anyone we don't want around. I want to address the corporate support....I know for a fact that it is hard for the co. to offer ANY funds to any event. It is even harder when the attendees of the event act like they want funds but not the involvement....... No crossover school, I don't like to fight. ANYTHING I have done for this event over the last 17 Years has been done because I am a bigger fan than most if not all of you. SETI : I still have a scrap board with a name on it for you. One day I will get it to you. Our Girl does a FINE job herding you cats....Love ya SIS

    It looks like Gayle and I will be there.

    When this all started 17 fans sent me a letter tell me how they got hooked and that they were coming to visit...they ask what day would be best. We had folks fly down from Indy to join me in hosting the event. This went on missing only a year or two until 2011. I had tons of help from forum members and friends. I had about $10k to work with. the money is no where close to that now. I took on a new boss and job and was "phased out" of the event. I am glad to see the fans keep it going and I am glad to help when I can. I plan to be there...maybe....just maybe I can chill and not work. Just spending time catching up with old friends and making new ones... but when have you ever seen me sit down and not work an event?

    Hello all...over the last few days I have been told that I no longer work for Klipsch... ....Not by Klipsch mind you, but by others. Not sure where this came from, but I am still here. " well my card let me in this morning...we will see after lunch ;)"
