  1. Hey Josh, welcome to the Klipsch Forums, we're glad you are here! [<)] It's always important to keep the wife happy, but I'll hand it to you for not getting rid of the Fortes. You'll love them on the 3 season porch! I've never compared the "82's" with Fortes, but I think you'll be fine. Dennie
  2. That's one lucky kid/young man! Give him a BIG CONGRATULATIONS from us! [<)] Passing on High Quality sound is a fantastic thing. Give yourself a pat on the back for doing the right thing! Dennie
  3. Hey NimaBeamer, Congratulations on the Parasound 2 ch pre-amp! [<)] The "harshness" could be caused by your room. The louder you play it, the more the room comes into play. Have you played with speaker placement, when playing loud? Or tried covering bare flooring, tables, walls with a blanket or something, trying to calm reflections? The room is a major component on any stereo system. Keep us posted and continue to enjoy this great hobby of ours! [] Dennie
  4. Whirled Peas = World Peace I've seen the bumper sticker! [:$] I've also seen: Give Peas A Chance! - A Famous John Lennon qoute. Kinda, sorta.... [^o)] Dennie
  5. I'll keep you posted.... I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you Boxx! There's nothing like Family for the Holidays, Good Luck! Yeah, World Peace would be the greatest gift we could have! [G] Dennie

  7. Google is your friend.... Just some examples! [<)] Dennie
  8. Fantastic! [<)] Thanks for the recommendation. Dennie
  9. Hey NimaBeamer, we're glad you are here! [<)] I don't know if "Bi-amping" will help much. I find that room placement has the biggest effect on the sound. What's your room like? Do you have the Epic's against the wall? Are they "toed" in towards the listening position? Do you have any room treatments like diffusers or absorbers on the wall, ceiling, etc? What year were your speakers made? Have you updated or replaced the capacitors? Older dried up capacitors can really have an effect on the sound. Tell us as much as you can about your set up and we'll try to help you get the best sound that you can. Dennie
  10. Congratulations Jeremy! [<)] Be sure to keep us posted and let us know how you like it. Merry Christmas to you and your Family! Dennie
  11. No, no! That spindle hole is way to big to play. Like these.... Photo courtesy of our friend Wardsweb (posted on another forum)! [<)] Dennie
  12. Absolutely! I was thrilled to get this book! [<)] It's just the right thickness to tilt my La Scalas up a tad, to give me the best sound I've ever had! ........ .......[] Seriously though, if you find something in there that makes your set up sound better, fantastic! I've not read the book, but I've seen it advertised a lot. [:$] So, it seems to be working for Jim! [^o)] Dennie
  13. Outlaws website says it's on sale for $629 until Dec. 30th. If you go with an integrated, YES you would run both speakers from the integrated. You mentioned "entire speaker set"? Are you running more than 2 speakers? Is this part of a Home Theater? Don't hesitate to ask questions Jeremy, we love this stuff and we are glad to help. BTW, welcome to the Klipsch forums and the Klipsch Family. We're glad you're here! [<)] Dennie
  14. I agree with Cubdog, you'd be better off with an Integrated or here's the Outlaw RR2150 Stereo receiver he mentioned. This has received many good reviews. It's loaded with 2 channel features.... •State-of-the-art stereo receiver inspired by the art deco table radios of the past •High performance FM Stereo/FM/AM tuner •Multiple inputs with separate record output bus •USB input for playback of streaming audio output from compatible computers •High quality phono input for both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges •Processor/equalizer loop •The only stereo receiver with a subwoofer output that includes selectable, analog bass management [Y] •Front panel "speaker equalization" selector adds a half-octave of bass boost at a choice of frequencies to improve performance with compact bookshelf speakers •Headphone jack with level control •Front panel stereo mini-jack input for easy connection to portable devices such as iPod® •Tone control defeat •Precision, motorized volume control •A/B Speaker Output •Pre-Out/Main-In connections •IR In/Out jacks •Removable IEC style power cord •Multi-device, programmable remote control Here s the link --------> CLICK HERE Dennie
  15. Hey, it's all about the music! [<)] Good for you Brad, a "ear recalibration" is always a good thing. Thanks for the review! [Y] Dennie
  16. Hey Cal, you might want to ask this in the "General" section. More Southern California members may see it there. I don't know of any, but wish you luck and hope you don't have to ship it at all. Dennie
  17. Hey Druss, that is great to hear. [<)] Keep us posted, Dennie [Y]
  18. You're right, horns are very efficient. But the RF-82II likes a little more power to sound their best. Here are the specs...... SPECIFICATIONS BUILT FROM: 2010 DEPTH: 16.3" (41.4cm) with grille ENCLOSURE TYPE: Bass-reflex via dual rear-firing ports FINISHES: Black Ash woodgrain vinyl FREQUENCY RESPONSE: 33Hz-24KHz ± 3dB HEIGHT: 43.9" (111.4cm) with feet HIGH FREQUENCY CROSSOVER: 1400Hz HIGH FREQUENCY DRIVER: 1" (2.54cm) Titanium diaphragm compression driver mated to 90° x 60° square Tractrix® Horn INPUTS: Dual binding posts / bi-wire / bi-amp LOW FREQUENCY DRIVER: Dual 8" (20.3cm) Cerametallic cone woofers NOMINAL IMPEDANCE: 8 Ohms compatible POWER HANDLING: 150W RMS / 600W Peak SENSITIVITY: 98dB @ 2.83V / 1m As you can see, they can handle up to 600 watts peak, so using and receiver or AVR with 25 - 50 wpc is really under-powering them. If you've got a friend or a stereo shop near by that will let you borrow or "Demo" a 200wpc amp, I think you'd notice the difference right off. The bass and mids will really shine and fill out the room. There is a huge difference between a 200 watt amp that is barely breaking a sweat, over a 50 watt amp that is maxed out. [] Dennie
  19. Wow, sorry for you loss, but it's good to have you back. Is there any way you can fit "Heritage" speakers in your room? I think you'll be much happier with the "known" Heritage sound that you loved, over the Reference series. Not that the Reference series is bad, it is just different. Dennie
  20. Congratulations Big Al! [<)] When I replaced the original crossovers in my 1979 La Scalas, I said it sounded like someone took a blanket off of my speakers. The difference is amazing and I'm glad you made the change. [Y] Dennie
  21. My Bad! AVR= Audio Video Receiver. Also, we don't believe in Stupid Questions, just stupid people who don't ask questions! [] Dennie
