  1. If cone travel was so minimal in the design Klipsch would not bother using a thicker gasket, its there for a reason.
  2. I'm partial to wheat beer myself but variety is good as well.
  3. Simple enough to measure if it clears or not. Surround to gasket surface.
  4. The Octoberfest is very good if you haven't tried it yet.
  5. The short straight horn of the Altec Lansing is better in some ways and not in others. Deep bass ? Really needs a sub but the mids are cleaner. Only 18 gauge wire ? Looks like you will need to alter a set of jumper cables to re-wire those cabinets from what I've been hearing around here.
  6. 2 passives in the side of a new version of the Chorus instead of the one on the back and you might have something.
  7. No need for sand in the risers, just make them solid. Rubber feet are fine. If you are not running a subwoofer you should consider doing so, raising them that much will deteriorate bass response.
  8. Every cabinet is off just enough to make each brace different unfortunately, you will need to fine tune each brace as you install. Yes, hope somebody with some experience will give some details.
  9. Offset bracing is a great idea, just as effective as an offset woofer on the motorboard however i felt the same way about looking at the offset bracing as being sad to look at and chose a center position for my La Scala's and am not unhappy with the results. The coloration is no longer bothersome as it was. Here is a good >link< and lots more on the subject if you take a little time to Google My set for reference.

  11. I would not worry about the so called splitter witch is really a reflector, as short wavelengths bounce off the reflector they lose their cohesiveness as a wavefront emerging at various angles of phase canceling each other out . Same thing is happening when short wavelengths hit the sidewalls off the rear throat. These bends act as a series inductor killing high frequency response, its just part of the design.
  12. I'm just the same with thighs, marinate with hot sauce and 70 min indirect off the coals on the side of the Weber. Potato chip skin chicken thighs. Salt & pepper the skin (or whatever you want really) Fill 1/3 of the grill or so with charcoal and cook indirect. Chicken skin up for 70-75 min, no need to flip or check. Fill your belly.
  13. A long screwdriver or even a steel rod with a golf ball on the ear side(drill a hole in the ball and shoe goo the ball on the end of the rod) works just as well as a stethoscope, the only difference will be you will hear the sounds with one ear instead of two. Just put ear protection in the other ear to filter out background noise. Good you have things squared away now and good luck with the project.
  14. Thank's Jim, not always a good trait in a time crunch but if the OP chooses the textured roller it does hide ugliness pretty well.
  15. Bondo the dings, dents & corners if need be. Sand Quality primer. Sand smooth, prep is everything Duratex. Sand the Duratex between coats if you are not happy with the finish.
  16. Agree, if the wire is too thick to fit into your terminals you can always strip it down so it fits. The last 3/4" of the wire is going to make zero difference. Soldering the ends is a great idea as well.
  17. Deflector size is not going to cause a resonance.
  18. Play something that gets the noise activated and use a stethoscope to determine where the noise is emanating from. If a stethoscope is unavailable a long screwdriver, steel rod or similar tool will work holding one end up to your ear and the other end against the cabinet.
  19. Reflectors do nothing under 200 Hz, the sound waves are too long. Like i said midrange is what it will effect if at all.
  20. The only detriment with a smaller splitter i can fathom would be a slight loss of midrange performance if anything.
  21. Recheck the woofer dustcaps & leads. The crossover can create noise as well if not secured properly. A rubber mallet can be a useful tool for finding loose panels or parts. If you are worried about marring the finish put a facecloth over it securing it with a rubber band.
