  1. Better plan on replacing that sub at some point as it is not an matter of if but when that plate amp is going to fail. Unfortunately the odds are against you. Look into other brands of subwoofers. Not sure how the new Klipsch subs will hold up yet as they have not been on the market long (RP-1200W, 1400W, 1600W).
  2. I would keep it around 50 to 60Hz because with a 12db slope you are still bleeding up to about 72Hz when set to 60. Unless you can do a 24db octave slope which tightens the cutoff frequency.
  3. Too much or I would look into them. This guy appears to have a used stereo shop in Barre, VT but his prices on used gear are certainly on the high side. He does however have a nice selection of used gear just asking too damn much for it. He has them on Facebook marketplace as well. If he was around $2500 to $2750 I would make the trek and sell my La Scala's to partially finance them. The crappy AK/AK-2 networks in those would be the first thing to go or upgrade them to AK-3's by swapping out some caps and coils.

    Screechy piezo's yuck. The older versions with dual quad manifolds and four K-78's were far better than the piezo's.
  5. Too narrow not wide enough for them to image correctly. You should have at least 4ft of wall on either side once they are in a corner. You are better off with the La Scala's.
  6. The Cornwall II grills will not line up properly with the Cornwall 1 HF/MF driver layout.
  7. All oil finishes will need reoiling at some point. Nice but not $4K nice maybe half that.
  8. It's because the one woofer is using the other one as sort of a passive radiator and generates some additional bass. Perhaps the capacitors in the networks need replacing.
  9. I ran two DBX BX-1's at one point one in 4-channel mode and the other in 3-channel mode. Fabulous amps that can essentially be run into a dead short. No the BGW amp is not the same not even close. I have service manuals and schematics for it but good luck finding someone to service it or find parts. The remnants of the DBC company that moved to CA with Gene Raymond the Lead Engineer was sold off to The Sound Room in Berkely. CA then they turned around and sold what was left to Musician's Service Center. That was a number of years ago though. Perhaps the only reason that I sold them and purchased a Sherbourn 7/2100A 7 Channel True Mono Block amp to replace the duo. Good luck in your quest.
  10. Thanks I sent the link to my Brother in Law in Texas.
  11. Yeah but you will need S/N's from the speakers that will possess them Klipsch won't sell them outright because of the DIY'ers. Good luck.
  12. I just replaced mine with a pair of a/d/s L200E's. Huge upgrade in performance. Plug and play. Nice pairs at a decent price can be found on eBay. These are some of the best mini speakers that you can get.
  13. Junk and junk. Plate amplifiers will fail it is just a matter of time.
  14. About $1800 overpriced. Nice looking speakers though just too much.
  15. All your doing with the cabinet below the Belle is turning into a bass reflex speaker which defeats the purpose of horn loading. Better to just add a competent sub and leave the Belle engineering alone.
