  1. Not 100% certain just yet, but I'm thinking about selling my Oris 200 Horns w/ Tang-Band W8-1808 Drivers. I will try to upload pictures later. I'm asking for $1,200 for the set including the Tang-Band drivers. I'll also include a MiniDSP for crossover/DSP purposes at my asking price. Many here have successfully used the Oris Horns with Khorn Bassbins. These will be for local sale only in the MD/DC/VA area.
  2. You guys are absolutely right. I'm actually the same way. Even though sometimes you can purchase another person's DIY project for less than the parts alone, there is still hesitation because you want the excitement to build it on your own. The Acoustic Elegance TD15M drivers from these speakers have been sold/shipped. I will be selling the SEOS15 Horn and B&C DE250 drivers separately.
  3. Final call before I part them out. Price drop to $700 for Klipsch form members. I already have an offer for $550 for the woofers alone. For $150 more, one gets $100+ worth of crossover components, $220 worth of Baltic Birch cabinets, plus $210 of compression driver and $75 SEOS waveguides. Think of these as Conwalls on steroids :-)

  5. WVU80, My zip is 20817. Klipsch forum members price is $750 ($850 everywhere else). These are absolutely great speakers and, although I personally don't like to listen loud, you are right in that they play clean at even extreme volumes. I know many here will gladly drop $800 - $1000 on Cornwalls, or $1,000 - $1,500 for Lascalas, or $2,000 to $3,000 for Khorns, but maybe little uncertain about dropping $750 for DIY speaker - but I promise you - you will not be a disappointment. Bill Waslo is a very much respected designer in the DIY community. The crossover was well designed and provides a seamless integration between SEOS and the TD15. This speaker has a performance/price ratio.
  6. I have speakers based on the following design by Bill Waslo: http://libinst.com/SEOS/SEOS15/SEOS1...5%20design.pdfParts, including wood, cost me $1,150. I'm asking $850 in other forums - I'll accept $750 from fellow Klipsch forum members. I just don't think you can get similar performance anywhere near that price. They were constructed with 3/4 Baltic birch. I did not apply a finish - so the new owner can stain/finish to their liking. If you are not local, I may be able to ship the parts. If you are interested in parts (AE-TD15M-8ohm, B&C DE250, SEOS 15 Horn), let me know. PM me for pictures

  9. Skillz, They are about 55" tall. The main tube section is 24" in diameter and the wood pieces are approximately 27" in diameter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks fella. I think its a good deal for someone local. These were never pushed hard. People would come over and think I some sort of bass freak just because of their size and because of the way they look :-) But truthfully, I never cared to listen to them loud. In fact, I don't like my movies loud. That being said, I immensely enjoyed these subwoofers. People don't realize how much low-frequency presence there is in movies. Even at low volumes, if there is a scene where there is background thunder, you could feel it in the room (even at low volumes).
  11. I have a pair of DIY Sonosub Subwoofers that I built about 7 or 8 years back. Each subwoofers contains a 15" TC-Sounds TC-2000 4ohm SVC subwoofer. These are passive subwoofers - you will need your own amp. I'm going off memory, but I believe they are 320liters of internal volume and are tuned to about 14Hz. I paid nearly $350+shipping for each subwoofer at the time. I also paid a $100+ for the 24" sonotube. I seen people sell old SVS passive subs for $300. Don't know what is a fair price, but I was thinking $250/each of $450pair.
  12. Just reading through this thread now. It's amazing how much of my experience has matched Dean's comments above. I upgraded my stock Klipschorn with Volti 2" Horn, plus BMS drivers and ALK ES Crossovers. Don't get me wrong - there was definitely an improvement in sound, but its was mostly experienced at high volumes. I can't remember the cost now but I think the Volti Horns were $600+/-, plus $1,300-$1,400 for BMS Drivers, plus $1,500 for ALK ES Crossover. I mean, you are talking about nearly $3,500 in upgrades. If I had a gathering at my place and we were listening to the system at loud volume, everyone enjoyed the effortless sound. At low to moderate levels (i.e., my normal listening level), I'm not sure if the improvement was easily observed. I mean you had to be listening to the music with a very critical ear to be able to detect improvement. You almost have to be looking for the improvement - which can take the whole joy out of the main objective: enjoying the MUSIC. I eventually ended up selling all my upgrades and appreciated having the dollars in my hand than to have all that money tied up in a system where I rarely got a chance to enjoy my investment. If you want to go the 2" route, and have the money, and enjoy tinkering around with your system - then it can be a fun journey. My comments are not meant to discourage anyone. I'm merely just sharing my experience - any by sharing my experience, I'm hoping it may help others set their expectations. My last comment is that if I had to do my system all over again, I would expend my energy on learning about room acoustics and use my money there. Going back to my system above, I'm sure that I would have achieved a greater improvement in sound if I had invested the aforementioned $3,500 in learning/implementing room treatment than upgrading various speaker components. Again, that comment is based on my experience, with my system, in my room.
