  1. KG4 as center channel, on its side above TV. Sounds great in my room with the other KG4s. I have it angled down, which is hard to see in this picture.
  2. Mine is horizontal over the TV. I will post a picture when I get home.
  3. Hate to say it, but another KG4. Good news is they are relatively cheap, though you wind up with an extra. I made my extra into the rear channel of a 6.1 setup. My KG4 front three can't touch my basement theater but I am always impressed by how well they disappear and just let me enjoy what I am watching. If I was after a single "center" to go between them I would peruse an Academy. I would prefer my center to be more capable in the mids, not less.
  4. WTB MWM single bin splits

    If you DIY there is always Claude's Quarter Pie design. Starts off the same as a MWM but a more home friendly shape.
  5. Bifocal lens vs Progressive lens

    I use progressive lenses with no problem with one big exception. I do a lot of bike riding and running (triathlete). I do not recommend using them for that, I have bifocal sunglasses I wear instead. It seems like it is too easy to misjudge distances when traveling fast, though never an issue when driving. I think it is a head angle thing. I also don't like them when playing trombone, again an angle issue. Costco lenses are great by the way, and cheap.
  6. Klipsch MCM, Frankfort Indiana (not KY)

    Sorry about the confusion, I saw Frankfort and ASSuMEd. Location is FRANKFORT, IN. I have to say that I am curious as well, though these are rare enough I don't know how what is there should be priced, or much about the mid horns.
  7. If for real seems to be missing a piece or two (tweeters). He is asking $1,400 for what is there. https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/ele/d/klipsch-mcm-1900-trade/6462243389.html
  8. LED Projectors

    My first projector was a LED 720p LG. It was a pretty good projector and trouble free in the 2 years or so I owned it. When I went to 1080p LG did not offer anything competitive, but if they did I would have given them a hard look. I liked the fact that there was no lamp to burn out, and the colors were quite good.
  9. Crossovers for new DIY speakers

    Thanks. I will check it out.
  10. I am toying with the idea of building a new trio of speakers for my living room HT system. Not enough room for bass horns so direct radiator bass. I would build a three way design using 12 inch woofers in their own boxes (bass), with my trio of Volti horns with EV DH1A drivers for the mids. Not sure about tweeters yet. I am not sure what to do about crossovers. I could go electronic, but that would mean creating a more complex system and risk annoying She Who must Be Obeyed. Passives would allow me to use the Pioneer AVR that is currently in place, but I know zero about designing and building passives . I am wondering if I could use an existing passive design with either slight or no modification? Electronic crossovers are easy for me to figure out how to make fit, having already done it with my basement system. I am in no hurry, this is just in the planning stage. The living room system sounds ok, better than I would have thought using KG4s as fronts. But those excellent Volti horns are just sitting there in my basement, unused, and begging for a new purpose. Thoughts appreciated
  11. Silver Faced Receiver

    Always have loved the looks of the 70s Yamahas, and have owned several. The HK 630 I currently have sounds better than any of them, though the Yamahas had so many cool looking switches.
  12. marantz sacd on a budget

    Here is a new option for a nice price. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00X6AGWRQ/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 My Integra can decode so I am using as a transport but it is doing a fine job. Blu Ray is good too.
  13. Klipschorn

    Better is subjective. I would vote for the all horn K-horn. If you can get them for the price of shipping (pallet shipping is surprising cheap)its a no brainer.
  14. Bob will sell you crossovers that sound like new but original crossovers. He also has the A4500 (?) which lowers the crossover to the tweeter and helps out the K400 mid horn. That requires new tweeters but is worth it IMO. Others such as Dean sell improvements on the old designs. Lots of ways to go about this. Bob is the easiest, and does a nice job.
