    Klipsch crossovers

    Lol, math basics 😁 Thanks, glens

    What to do with this?

    If it was me, I'd use the type A. Drop the tap on the autoformer from 4 to 3, change the squawker cap from 13 to 6uF, and keep the tweeter cap at 2uF. Use some nice AudioCap Thetas, and you're done, for ~ $140 total, shipped.

    Klipsch crossovers

    VAC or VDC is fine. To calculate voltage equivalency, you would divide the VAC rating by 1.4 to calculate an equivalent VDC, or multiply the VDC rating by .7 for an equivalent VAC. Crossover caps typically have lots of headroom where voltages are concerned, and if you go to from, say a 250 VAC cap to a 250 VDC cap, you've increased your voltage headroom.

    R-115SW stops working after 10 minutes

    This. I bought an either refurbished or open box RSB-11 a couple of years ago from an authorized dealer. When it arrived, I found that the woofer voice coil was knocked out of alignment during shipping. I contacted customer service and was directed to send the faulty sub back for repair or exchange (can't remember which). Klipsch paid for all shipping and repair costs, updated me via e-mail as service progressed, and the new (or repaired) unit has been working without trouble for a couple of years now. Pretty good customer service in my experience.

    Factory quality control?

    That's what happens when I skim. I blame my eyes; they dart around like they're late for an appt.

    Factory quality control?

    I think Schu was implying that the driver might be wired out of phase for a reason. Not saying that's the case, but it's not uncommon, depending on the crossover design.

    Pairing a nicer wireless sub with my soundbar

    I'm confused; in a 21 hour old post, you stated that you already hooked this system up at your home? Is this a replacement? if so, let us know how it goes. Hopefully the woofer output will be improved. Sorry, I don't have an answer to your question about the R-10SWi.

    RSB-11/general subwoofer questions

    It's really a woofer, not a subwoofer, and I get a surprising amount of output from mine in an average sized living room (placed in a corner). It sounds like something's wrong with your unit.
  10. ARX, that looks just like the old QSC-152i horn that Zilch used for his Econowave designs: http://techtalk.parts-express.com/forum/tech-talk-forum/34467-flex-your-pcd-mettle

    The Sixes name

    I think Klipsch decided that the market wasn't there for the 15, but not positive about that. There was a thread about it a while ago.

    The Sixes name

    I think the 15" version (which was scrapped) were called the 15.

    The Sixes name

    6" woofers, is my guess.
  14. Thankful that I never have to read another ishwash rant again 👍
