    Joke ??? OK, Two words.......... "Michigan Football !"........ 😅😂
  3. If pictures are worth 1,000 words, your Avatar is worth 2,000 words! Roger
  4. March of 08 here, I'm still just a shiny virgin here! Been here just long enough to know that Amy leaving and the loss of the BS Forum are a big reason I spend more time on Cory's Klipsh off topic on Facebook, than here! Rog
  5. My Nakamichi amps have a anti DC protection circuit to shut the amps down if to much DC output is present. The Adcom GFA-565, 300 watt mono blocks I ran way back when did not and roached a few woofers as they went bad. Roger
  6. How old are you, are you a kid cause you sure don't know your klipsch History! PWK created his first speaker the klipschorn, a home speaker to reproduce the sound of those giant horn speakers he grew up on in the Movie Theatres. Furthermore, Klipsch the company is obviously not owned by Paul who has left us, but they are in it for the money, NOT the nostalgia! Any genuine long term Klipsch lover would NEVER call headphones, subwoofers or any design PWK wasn't personally in "HERITAGE!" Want to know when Paul sold the Company? PWK was a genious and was a modest man. PWKs logo was klipsch with a lower case "k". As soon as Fred bought the company, he changed to an upper case "K". This speaks volumes about "who" both men were. Roger
  7. Carl, Yes, Cory was involved with Roy to get a small run of them done. I think Cory had seven for sale but they are all sold now. Rog
  8. They only did a small run of the KPT-1502's and they are old sold. I believe they were being sold for right at $3,000 without an amp. It's big brother the 1802 is still available and makes the best Bass Guitar reproduction you will ever hear IMHO! Rog
  9. You are obviously talking your beliefs and not truth. You have obviously never heard a Klipsch KPT-1502 or 1802 in person. A direct radiator has 10 times the distortion of a Horn and it IS Auditable! Roger
  10. I disagree again, both the Bass horn on the La Scala and Belle are far to short and these speakers are not even acting as a Horn below 100 Hz. Better look at a Horn Sub that can cross that high for best results! Roger
  11. I disagree!! A fully horn loaded speaker Like Klipschorn, La Scala, or Belle deserves to be in a fully Horn loaded system and I don't think for one second that most of us that have multiple pairs of these are that worried about the additional space! My vote rather is most of us are Puss-Pusses and are afraid of the wife! I have never had that problem but boy am I aware of it with most of you.... Hey, the ideal would be one, or a pair of Klipsch KPT-1802's but if your really don't have the room or the budget, a fully horn loaded sub like the DIY F-20 has a pretty small footprint and is only tall and if your aren't handy with tools you can always contract a build with Carl !! For hat it's worth to the sissy's among us, that's just my 2 cents! Roger
  12. The speakers are ONLY supposed to get Alternating Current at all times. If you turn your amp up to loud, you can Clip the amplifier. Clipping the Amplifier means you have run out of headroom and instead of a round wave of Alternating Current, the tops and bottoms of the wave are Clipped off meaning they are flat, straight, or cut off. These flat spots are DC, both positive at the top of the wave and Negative voltage at the bottom of the wave. These flat spots of Direct Current are exactly what heats up your voice coil and can blow your speakers. A lot of good amps starting around 1980 had two RED L.E.D.'s, one for each stereo channel and they would start to light up when you started running your amp into Clipping. Kind of like an idiot light on your car! ... Roger
  13. Richard, You know that I love Kevin to death, but he has it worse than I do! Denial is not a river! Rog
