  1. I guess the OP never came back to update. Maybe he figured it out in almost 2 months time.
  2. These were the original crossovers I used in my Belle clones that I built and they do sound great. I had ordered matched pairs of the Russian PIO capacitors from an awesome seller on ebay and confirmed this with my Fluke meter, too. But, I ended up building a new set from scratch so these aren't being used. I took everything off the boards and repainted them black then remounted and soldered everything in place. Obviously these will work in a great many speakers so it's up to you to decide if they work for your needs. Asking $225 shipped anywhere in the CONUS. Please let me know if any questions.
  3. If Amazon HD Music could have that ability along with a way to search through a saved artist catalog, I'd go back. Otherwise, I guess I'll stick with Spotify.
  4. I know, most everyone has seen these done so I thought I'd add mine to the mix. I stripped off the old material and covered it in some of the remaining ribbon mahogany veneer I had from when I built my Klipsch Belle inspired clones a couple years back. I'm not as thrilled with the phenolic backed veneer as it was thicker than normal paper backed veneer and tougher to work with. But, it does look better than the original silver color as mine had stains on it from its last 40 years of use. I believe I'm just going to order a new dust cover as I really dont want to spend hours on mine making it look newer. Yeah, it's a hundred bucks but it's bolt on and go and my time is worth that.
  5. I don't think I've ever attempted a chat on there in all the years I've had it. Maybe this is something new? Anytime I've had an issue, it was taken care of if it was within the "window" and even a couple of times when it wasn't.
  6. Jeez... I miss the prices this stuff, and others, could be bought for 10 to 15 years ago.
  7. Good for you. I avoid watching the news anymore as I dont care to hear anything about it. I figure by mid November, they'll have it figured out.
  8. I'd personally rather have Black Satin than I would Golden Oak...but under that black is definitely oak. Lol. Just a personal preference. But those aren't v1's for sure. I'd be in for $800 but that's about it.
  9. Only 3 years ago. Inflation has made them go up in some areas. lol
  10. Go to the link below and scroll just a little ways down. It will show the B and B2 close together.
  11. They made a nice difference for sure and it's easy to do with the parts that are already on the Type B crossover. It's a petty minimal expense.

    Stimulus Money?

    Awesome. I did my taxes early so hopefully this will come fairly quick.
  13. That is a big ol' box.... Looks good!
  14. Pretty sure this should have been put in the Alerts section
  15. The 743 and 753 were the most problematic at the time and a lot of it was video switching but some were amplifier sections. It wasn't all of them for sure; a lot made it through with no issues and are still working today. I would still buy NAD today, if I needed more new things, as I still know the National Sales Manager for NAD. Still a great line.
  16. That series wasn't one of NAD's best efforts. I was the rep for NAD & PSB when those were out. Great sounding receivers for sure but typically worked better in 2-channel mode than surround. As great as the company was, they were always a couple years behind everyone else as far as HDMI switching, surround modes, etc., than the Jap companies. The T773 was a beast though,...when working.
  17. I used wood screws BUT they were on the inside as I made 3/4" glue blocks all around the inside of the back so I could glue & screw the back panel on from the inside. I think I have pictures somewhere and I'll post if I can find them. I did the same mounting on the back panels of the KLF-30's I had that suffered the same issues. Edit...found the pics. The original glue job inside on mine was awful. It looked like it was done on Margarita Friday at 4:45pm. Original glue job... Redone...
  18. I took the backs of mine completely apart and reattached them and also did some extra bracing. Made them much more solid. I've sold them since but they are great speakers.
  19. Thanks. It served its purpose for a couple years in our last house. I built it based on what equipment I was using at the time so everything fit really well. But, went to some new things so it wouldn't work with new goodies so I donated it to a church sale thing. But all of that was easy to work with.
  20. A few years back, I built an entertainment center out of 1/2" MDF that I "veneered" with 1/4" oak (or birch) that you could get at Lowes or Home Depot that came in 4x8 sheets. It made for a 3/4" piece of wood, basically. Turned out quite good as I cut sections out to make it look like planks and then used solid oak on edges and routered a nice edge. Those sheets were very reasonable and stained really good. Thing is, they may not have that now at those stores as I would imagine it came from China. I went to Lowes over the weekend to get a piece of their "cabinet grade" 1/2" birch for some garage cabinets we built and they were out of it but had some 3/4"...but not much. Went to the local lumbar yard and they had some. Edit...found a pic of entertainment center.
  21. Maybe put a different kind of "table top" on it that can hide those screw holes if you're so inclined. Give it an overhang edge like a coffee table might have possibly. Looks great!
  22. @M_Klipsch So what did the actual dimensions of your cabinet end up being? You used the Dayton 10", right? What amp will you end up using? @jason str Are there any car audio woofers that work just as well that you've used or tested? I guess it would be just making sure it falls within the Fs, Qts, and Vas and make sure the depth works as Bill listed. I have access to various brands of car audio woofers I can buy for cost and possibly find one in a dual 8-ohm version so I can run a stereo amp on it. That is if I go with the Rockford RF2000 home amp I have. Otherwise, it may be one of the Dayton "plate amps" with DSP.
  23. One of these days when time allows and I'm caught up on building "stuff" for the new (1 year old) house, I'm going to build one of these since I bought the plans already. Looking good!
