  1. Cabinet size depends on driver T/S parameters. You can't just shrink a cabinet without consequences. Most blow so much money on speakers and amps that subs are an afterthought or have only this >[]< small space left for a sub and wonder why it does not sound that great in the end.
  2. Old school phone lines can get you as well.
  3. Perfect for automotive use.
  4. Works like a port, just a tuning device.
  5. The Sixes are the way to go if decent sound is the goal.
  6. 100 % Positive. As far as i know Klipsch has not used any spacers to mount the K-33 or K-43 but use a thicker gasket to keep the cone from contacting the motorboard. Maybe some think because it has less Xmax it should be OK but really this has little meaning in this instance.
  7. Black cabinets need black paint, there are a few ways to get them looking better. Black permanent marker- cheap but works OK. Black touch up paint- apply to scratches carefully. Give them to a local auto body shop and have them prep and paint will give the best results. Duratex is another alternative. Do it yourself prep and rattle can spray.
  8. Any oil based finish will darken the wood and many yellow over time, the only finish that will really leave the wood natural is wax and any good car wax will do. Nothing wrong with water based finishes, i have used water based Poly on many wood floors & cabinets with great results and longevity, this would be the second best natural looking finish using a matte finish.
  9. The Eminence Kappa 15 C is not just a drop in replacement in the La Scala, you will either need to double gasket the woofer (witch i don't recommend) or make a simple spacer out of plywood so the cone does not slap against the motorboard. Adding a good sub takes away any negatives in the replacement of the K-33.
  10. Not a real comparison, 2 different speakers with different needs in two different areas of the room. About as useless of a comparison as you could get. Until you get either in your room setup with your gear its a coin toss.
  11. Once you get below tuning the woofer moves quite a bit. In the case of the Chorus II you will never hear the passive overexcursion until its too late. You may gain a few Hz in the bottom end extending the ports but you will give up something else in return hence my sub recommendation.
  12. Nothing is free in the audio world, its all give and take.
  13. Leave the ports alone, add a proper sub to strengthen the bottom end.
  14. You will never get a sander into the back section of the bottom panel, sanding the front section will make it look worse as it will never match throughout the panel. I recommend matte Polyurethane or wax in place of spar varnish for the natural look.
  15. Soundbars suck. I second the little amp and bookshelf option.
  16. Avoid goo gone ( contains Petroleum distillates ). 100% Silicone spray may work.
  17. We got some snow here, slow and steady is not my idea of a blizzard. Never trust the weather report.
  18. First thing i would try is a damp lint free towel or old undershirt, put some dishwashing soap in the water when wetting the cloth. Avoid over wetting the cloth so not to drip anywhere. This is the safest route, may as well try that first.
  19. Getting rid of that 150 Hz hump makes a big difference in a positive way, every little improvement makes for a more enjoyable listening session.
  20. Hopefully my son is off work Saturday so he can deal with it.
  21. Hope the weathermen are wrong again. Our snow thrower needs a new needle and seat and the parts are no longer available.
  22. The answers have been posted, you just can't interpret them. You're welcome.
  23. Your legit questions have been answered and proven with test results and professional opinions but yet you still ask the same questions about the same subs. The theory of 1 sub vs 2 need to be taken in context.
  24. 21" driver and cost effective is an oxymoron.
