  1. No, there was minimal foam to begin with. If i recall that foam pad was U shaped on the bottom of the cabinet, it was probably moved to install the crossover there. Nothing to worry about.
  2. Unhook it and lay a large towel on the floor and prop it up at a 45 degree angle and try again as the gasket may have gummed up over the years.
  3. Saw Eddie back in the early 90's, put on a pretty good show.
  4. The passive will move either way unless there is a gaping hole, the passive will move back to its normal position slowly if there is a leak. Sometimes i forget some have no experience but it seemed pretty self explanatory.
  5. Check the cabinet for air leaks by pushing the woofer back as evenly as you can and checking if the passive stays in the same position, if the passive moves back in you have a leak. To find the leak ( if there is one) run a 20 Hz tone through the system, enough to get the woofer moving 1/8" or so and using a 3/16- 1/4" vacuum line or similar type hose with one end near your ear and the other end go around all the drivers, passive, terminal cup and seams. If there is a leak you will hear a chuffing sound from the end of the hose.
  6. Experiment with pulling them out from the corners. If that is not enough spend the money on a substantial subwoofer or two.
  7. If a homeowner builds his own home is it worth less than the neighbors similar house of similar size ?
  8. Flared ports reduce port noise, more airflow = more noise. A mod for older versions can be done with half round trim, probably not for versions with grille option. A miter and coping saw will be needed for this.
  9. Those sewer drain covers are impeding airflow through the ports, remove them. Pre-stain wood conditioner will smooth out the blotchy color issue, just follow the instructions on the container.
  10. The extra magnet is a bucking magnet, should be no difference except shielding.
  11. Neither the frame or x-max has anything to do with weather a driver is suited for sealed or ported. EBP (dividing Fs x Qes) is used to determine this. An EBP ( Efficiency Bandwidth Product ) around 100 usually indicates a speaker is best suited for a ported enclosure. An EBP closer to 50 normally indicates a speaker is best suited for a sealed enclosure. A speaker with an EBP 50-100 might work well in both types of enclosures. This is a basic rule of thumb anyways.
  12. Piezo tweets don't age well, if they are original just replace them. Motorola KSN1016A ?
  13. Bad investment. Find a good used set if that's the way you want to go.
  14. Hacker Pschorr is my favorite, with a lemon slice.
  15. I like to hear everything that is recorded personally. If you never heard it you won't miss anything.
  16. Many very wealthy people are frugal beyond belief.
  17. If cone travel was so minimal in the design Klipsch would not bother using a thicker gasket, its there for a reason.
  18. I'm partial to wheat beer myself but variety is good as well.
  19. Simple enough to measure if it clears or not. Surround to gasket surface.
  20. The Octoberfest is very good if you haven't tried it yet.
  21. 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.
