  1. BouBou: Follow the link below for what I did, for a similar situation as yours. A bit more elaborate than Max2, but not much. As he indicated, it helps to have a good table saw. Particularly the 45 deg. cuts on the 2x6 that is bolted to the tail board. Hopefully, you can see from the pictures, that instead of screwing into the side grill braces, I used eye bolts and Molly bolts to snug the back boards in. My method may be unnecessarily elaborate.

  2. Dimitry, since you have wooden floors have a look at how I did my 60th anniversary style backs. Just follow along with the pictures in the link below. https://picasaweb.google.com/115266395444773202379/Khorn60thAnniversaryStyleBacks# Rich
  3. Ok that is what it looked like. Great job, even more simple than mine. http://picasaweb.google.com/rbakedq/Khorn60thAnniversaryStyleBacks# is a link to a few pics on how I did mine.
  4. Davis: you did your backs very much as I did mine. How did you attach your backs to the speakers? what did you screw them into? I screwed the rear edge of my backs to a tail board extension, and I use eyebolts and toggles to secure the front edge to the Grills. Very solid. I also sealed them up with weather stripping and felt. Rich.
  5. If you go to the following link you can see how I did the backs. They turned out much better than I expected, and not very hard to do. http://picasaweb.google.com/rbakedq/Khorn60thAnniversaryStyleBacks# Parts list: 8' 2x10, 4x8x3/4" mfd, eye bolts, toggle bolts, screws, weatherstip, felt and paint Rich
  6. I have to agree with Kent. The Manley Stingray is a great sounding amp and matches very well with the Khons. You can see what is in my current system, and all I can say is that it is a toss up between tthe two setups. The 2A3's have their own thing, but when I really want to rock out, I go down stair and pull the Stingray out of the pool room system and put it in the main system. Rich
  7. To be clear I have good corners. My problem is that because of the wainscoating I can not get a good seal with pipe foam. I did use memory foam, and that did work, but the backs are better and it is easier to move them around. Rich
  8. This is what I did: http://forums.klipsch.com/forums/p/109982/1108625.aspx#1108625 Rich
  9. Yes, only a few holes. I do like the ALK ES Xovers. Is that what you have? Rich
  10. You can also take a look at what I did. Very easy, and it works. http://forums.klipsch.com/forums/t/109982.aspx Rich
  11. Coytee: I did missinterpret you post sorry. I read it on my Blackberry so it did not come across as you meant. Also, I could not tell the pic was a Bong!!! makes much more sense.
  12. Maybe I will just delete the post or the link to the photos. Lets just leave it that backs make NO differece what so ever. I have done other mods and updates, but give the responce from some posters I am not going to post them. I thought I was trying to help others. I am PUFFING now: I think what I came up with is clever, easy to do, low in cost, and accomplishes what false corners and backs are supposed to do. Bye.....
  13. Dean is correct what I am hearing is more of what is already there. Compared to the memory foam I was using, the bass is tigher with the backs. Compared to nothing, just somewhat tigher. Rich.
  14. Rick; I think much improved. Deeper a tightrer bass. And yes I did it because I wanted to be able to angle them better. I also, was having problems getting them sealed using foam. Groom, In my case, no need for a bottom as I have wood floors. I sealed the bottom of the tail board and the backs with felt. Rich
