  1. Just about finished wet sanding the primer and the black satin finish will be done by the weekend done soon, the sanding is taking longer than expected. Price has changed accordingly to Sold.
  2. Fancy cables are nice to look at and fun to brag about to your friends about so spare no expence and head over to Radio Shack and get the house brand cables or order on line from Parts Express, the Dayton brand audio cables built very well. http://www.parts-express.com/wizards/searchResults.cfm?searchFilter=&srchExt=CAT&perPage=27&sortBy=1&layout=grid&page=1&srchPrice=&srchCat=861&srchMfg=301&srchPromo=&srchAttr=
  3. I use a soft paint brush to dust the passives on the Chorus II's.
  4. Your speakers can in fact be bi-amped with your pioneer, weather or not it helps the sound any will be up to you to decide. Post back with your results.
  5. Very nice find, those Frote II's do look like new. What are your opinions from switching from the Marantz to the Mac integrated , any downs or all good ? I never place my Chorus II's (similar to Forte II) in corners though admit it does help augment bass response, even with a straight wall depth placement makes a difference in sound, just take some time with experimenting with room placement and see what works best for you in your room, not all are created equal. Buy some lottery tickets while the gettins good, luck don't last forever. []
  6. I agree, love the bass guitar on that track.
  7. Be sure to post pictures! 4 of these should raise the roof, literally, or destroy it. You better have one big space to drive 4 of these things, good luck with the build.
  8. The amp has a two year warranty, try to find the receipt and send it in before the warranty expires. The shop where you purchased the product may be able to help if you still cannot locate the receipt.
  9. Sorry, did not catch the no HDMI on the television, disregard the link then. Have a look around Parts express, they may have something that may work for you.
  10. This may help with your issue. http://marantz.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/marantz.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=14&p_created=1185996684&p_sid=h9DLczXj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_srch=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPSZwX3NvcnRfYnk9JnBfZ3JpZHNvcnQ9JnBfcm93X2NudD05NCw5NCZwX3Byb2RzPSZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9JnBfY3Y9JnBfc2VhcmNoX3R5cGU9YW5zd2Vycy5zZWFyY2hfbmwmcF9wYWdlPTE!&p_li=&p_topview=1
  11. Carl, please read the pdf link i posted right on this page. Chris, well put, distortion is distortion, i just thought it was normal for woofers to sound the way they do until just recently. Now having a complete horn loaded system it has changed the way i hear music, all for the better. Since my completion of the horn loaded subwoofer paired to the LaScala's my Chorus II's just sit idle, what a shame huh ? The music now just flows from my speakers and creates a complete soundstage without missing a beat, i can hear where every band member is playing instead of just hearing the good familiar sound, not that the subwoofer made all this difference but from other previous speakers owned too, nothing ever sounded just right. Never will i go back now that im spoiled with horns, the way it was meant to be heard.
  12. As much as i love Klipsch products i would steer clear from that choice, move up the Klipschladder or look for something completely different. Knowing what main speakers you are running with your Onkyo may get more help.
  13. Its gonna be a hard sell around these parts but good luck. Too bad this did not come up last year, i could have used those cabinets to replace my Altec Valencia A series that were really beat up though i would have offered cash my Klipsch are not for sale. []
  14. This statement was taken out of context. Every statement i ever read states by horn loading a driver the distortion is reduced and SPL goes up, unless you can show me otherwise i don't see how you can argue different. Please prove me wrong. Actually it wasn't. You made a statement that a direct radiating subwoofer design created distortion. Period. I never argued the merits of horn loading or it's benefits. This was never a discussion about distortion vs SPL in horn loading vs conventional direct radiating subwoofers. At least not from my end. No period, that is a comma and you keep jumbling my words around. Lets keep it civil here shall we. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/context http://www.thefreedictionary.com/context'>
  15. Looks like the word is getting around. [] http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1236870
  16. No Does your subwoofer amp have high level inputs ?
  17. After the woofers are broken in post your thoughts about Bob's cast frame woofers if you don't mind, another opinion is always welcome. I too have been thinking about starting some veneer jobs around the house just for some practice so when the need to veneer a nice set of speakers it won't be too fugly looking. Where did you end up getting your sheet stock ? When i was looking around the price varied so much it was hard to make an educated decision on what to buy.
  18. Have you noticed any difference in sound from the unmatched woofers ? By the way, very nice looking speaker.
  19. Is there any preouts for the main speakers or just for rear & center ? If you have preouts for the main use those.
  20. Here is a good article with some numbers. http://hps4000.com/pages/special/woofer_distortion.pdf

  22. "Anything that moves, distorts" Roy D.The less that the drivers have to move to produce the required SPLs, the less distortion there will be - and this was an empirical observation by PWK. Truly horn-loaded drivers move much less than direct radiators to produce the same SPLs. If this statement is in fact true it makes sense, while my thinking may be off kilter my previous statement is at least correct. Time to find more information on the subject. [8-|]
