    Klipsch Subwoofers lacking the 'WOW" FACTOR

    The information i was referring to was in my first post. The differences between a tapped horn and a fully horn loaded model as the exposed cone of the tapped horn increases distortion that cannot be passively filtered out in the folded horn. You know this...

    Klipsch Subwoofers lacking the 'WOW" FACTOR

    Yes, filters can reduce distortion out of the subs capable bandwidth ( design dependent ). Remove was maybe a bad choice of words.

    Klipsch Subwoofers lacking the 'WOW" FACTOR

    I was referring to the downsides of the tapped horn and not the efficiency part. Bandpass filters wont remove distortion.

    Do yourself a favor and get rid of it. If you need something small go with the Pro Media 2.1 system or better yet small bookshelf's and decent sub(s).

    The other downside to the tapped horn design is higher distortion, the exposed driver causes this unlike a fully horn loaded design where distortion is filtered out through the folded horn itself. Every design has advantages and disadvantages but horn loading is as good as it gets.

    woodworkers in the crowd, finish ?

    If you want protection and the natural look use any good automotive car wax ( paste ) on them, be sure to work out of direct sunlight.

    Sub feet/spikes

    These products are not going to make a bit of difference on carpeted surfaces. Bare floors are another story....

    Sub feet/spikes

    As mentioned above, rubber feet are available at Parts express, Menards, Home Depot, Lowes and most hardware stores. Don't fall for more expensive gimmicks.
  9. Not currently taking any orders. Thank you for the thought.

    Simply drill new holes in the correct position.

    Bridge Mode for KG-4s?

    Wire up 2 speakers in series for each channel for an easier amplifier load.

    K-77 Equivalent Drivers

    My grinding comment above should have been explained better, you grind the cabinet a bit and not the driver itself. The LSI may be a bit different, or just depends how the cutouts were laid out during construction just as every bass bin is just a bit off in measurement.

    K-77 Equivalent Drivers

    The Eminence APT 50 actually requires a bit of work fitting into the La Scala as it rubs against the top of the cabinet, a bit of grinding takes care of that and its really not a bad driver overall and you don't have to worry about frying it like the stock K-77 using a first order filter.

    K31 and the Jubilee

    Horn loading normally increases impedance, the 8 Ohm driver in this case likely is no longer an 8 Ohm driver.
  16. The THT is meant to be fired into a boundary, the F-20 is not. Placed in a corner or firing into any boundary all bets are off, the THT uses the boundary to extend the horn and add 12+ dB not including cabin gain. Pay the extra $15 for the plans, easier is not better in this case.
  17. I'm waiting for the Sessions toilet paper myself.

    Best DIY subwoofer?

    The Tuba HT makes normal subs sound like children's toys.

    Here i was doing it all wrong as i was smoking the weed and then eating the pizza.

    Value of Belle Klipsch other questions.

    Belle and La Scala are deep bass compromised and the amplification will make no difference, the horn is just too short to produce deep bass notes. Add a proper horn loaded subwoofer into the mix and you will never know its there.

    Klipschorn or La Sacala or...

    If they were not stored in high humidity likely they will just need new crossover capacitors, if humid conditions existed in storage they may need more attention.

    Best low cost Center Channel match for KG 4's?

    If the KG 4 is horizontal yes, horn dispersion is highly compromised. If you can stand the KG 4 upright it would be the best match.

    Got SUBS for my La Scalas!!

    Pull one of those woofers so we can get some information on what drivers you have there, maybe they can be used for subwoofer duty or maybe not.

    Me too. Bacon, sausage and onion with BBQ is my go to. Another great not so popular pie is just a regular tomato based sauce with Italian beef and hot giardiniera.
