  1. Guys, Subject line says it all....for a moderately loud old-school R&B band, would the KPT-100's be a viable choice for monitoring near-field on stage? This is the band. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEWpAjxABtE I see some 15" slants on stage. This is an auditorium/movie theatre. They usually play much more modest venues. Any info helpful, thanks.... Chuck Snow
  2. SSD, These are some beautiful surround sound speakers you have there, lol..... I started with one pair of H-I's and was happy and had a stable situation for 25 years. Then I joined this forum. Since I joined the forum, I have added: 1pr Pro H's, 1pr split-cabinet CornScalas (a DIY cross between a Cornwall and a LaScala), 2pr KP-3002's, and 2ea KP 115 SW's and a pair or AL K TracHorns with Atlas K55 drivers, not to mention a butt-load of crossovers, amplifiers, subwoofer control units, multieffects processors, preamps, etc. Two of the most interesting gear finds were the Yaquin tube buffer(unity-gain, just smoothes the digital ice-pickiness out and adds a bunch of dynamics, especially to bass and drums) and the BBE Sonic Maximizer. Take a picture now and 10 years later, surprise yourself. Welcome and congrats on finding a hobby that won't rot your brain or steal your soul...and by all means, rock on... Chuck
  3. This might be a way for me to solve my stage monitor problem..... Where are you located? I am in Birmingham/Hoover . Are cabinets and motor boards intact? Thanks, Chuck
  4. Let's go to Kentucky and 'splain it to him...or perpetually ignore him....the virtual death penalty...I was willing to forgive a little ignorance, but you're right, smells like the bottom of the dumpster behind your neighborhood fish market...
  5. His last post kinda ruffled my feathers. Fellas, It could be that he just is not aware of the amount of gear that passes back and forth via this forum,and does not know of the collegiality and family-spirit that pervades the forum, nor of the generally accepted high class level here. Just a thought...
  6. I am very interested in the 115's. Please email me , cedwinsnow@yahoo.com , with a phone number so I can call you and work out the details. If you are in Wytheville, that would be a 6.5 hours, but if they are in good shape, and the price is right, it would be a worthy road trip. I will not be situated to do it until about 3or 4 weeks from now because of work and family obligations, but I most seriously want to get these. In fact, you could consider them sold, given the above caveats. Thanks, Chuck Snow
  7. MJ, Please reconize(trucker CB term) I only alerted our fellow-travelers to the sale, I am not the one who sold the H's. Blessings, Doc
  8. Good looking H's, great price. http://bham.craigslist.org/ele/3920434153.html
  9. And the Selenium phenolic-dome driver is just a little less than the Atlas diaphragm, and the replacement diaphragms for them are around $10.00 each. Sound is similar.
  10. Found this while looking around the Southeast. Somebody was looking for some in the garage sale section, I think. Here's the link: http://nashville.craigslist.org/ele/3801381899.html Happy hunting!!
  11. Youthman, thank you so much for posting this alert! With the help of my Daughter who lives in Tampa, I was able to get these. They fit into the back of her Passat just fine, and will be ferried north to Montgomery in a couple of weeks when my baby girl comes for a visit. I already had two of these, and they are so good, I wanted another pair. I have the first pair biamped with an active crossover and have adapted the crossovers and added a pair of the ALK (made by Martinelli)Trachorns for midrange and am using the horn in the cabinet for high frequency. The midrange horn driver is a Selenium phenolic, and the hi-freq driver is a Selenium titanium. That is my TV sound and rear channels for music. Set up this way, these speakers compare favorably to my Cornscala mains, except the bass is better. The speakers were in great shape, and the price was good. KP3002's are fantastic! Thanks again, Chuck
  12. Forum, There is an unusual variety of Klipsch gear for sale on Craigslist in Birmingham, some reference series, couple pair H's, sweet pair of KG 5.2's, pair of the Chorus, some Mirages, and a couple sets of computer speakers. Enjoy... http://bham.craigslist.org/search/ela?zoomToPosting=&query=klipsch&srchType=A&minAsk=&maxAsk=
  13. These people are excellent...good choice of products and great service. Last tube I ordered was a Genelex Gold Lion 6922. I ordered it around 3pm and it was making music in my living room by 10am the following day, thanks to FedEx and Tube depot's stellar customer service. The tube is working well. Good luck with your tube adventures!! http://tubedepot.com/
  14. I'm badly prejudiced, and too exponential about The Shoals, just "representing" for my buds, I guess. I must confess I like most or all of it, though, whether NOLA(Mac Rebennack, Allen Toussaint, Professor Longhair) Memphis, Muscle Shoals, Detroit or wherever. If it is in tune, on time, and carefully executed I like it....and the Hi-Fi is not complaining. Neighbors maybe another question....
  15. I am certainly interested in these two cabinets. This is the KP 3002, the trapezoidal cabinet model?? Please let me know what we need to do to make this happen. Direct email is cedwinsnow@yahoo.com Thanks, Chuck Snow
  16. http://www.allmusic.com/artist/the-muscle-shoals-rhythm-section-mn0001352027 I have friends that worked as session side men and producers at both places. If I had to choose one body of work over another, I would vote for the Shoals. I am not objective, and yes, the dilletante remark was a little hyperbolic. Most people are not aware of the very big mark Muscle Shoals made in defining soul music. The artists came with ideas, and the music men revealed them, much the same way as a sculptor frees the image from the stone.They really did not seek to make a style, per se, they just played the music the only way that seemed good to them, and history shows us the result. Muscle Shoals also transcended soul music by recording many pop, country, and rock artists, like the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, Bob Seeger, Delbert McClinton, the Oak Ridge Boys, Glenn Frey, The Osmonds, and so on. There are a couple of interesting documentaries out there on the subject, and the area still is producing excellent musicians and bands, like Alabama Shakes and Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit.
  17. Dilletantes...the real Soul Music came from Muscle Shoals, Alabama...
  18. One wants always to be a part of the solution rather than further contributing to the problem.
  19. Just a general FYI to everyone: Bill is so easy to deal with, and courteous, diligent with his follow-up, and his packing job could have been one of the numbered wonders of the world! Kudos to the FedEx guy too...it was raining, and they left the package in a plastic bag so that it was only a little damp feeling, not quite wet. I have not hooked up the crossover, gotta go find some funky adapters to split a signal out for it. I have an interesting mix of consumer and pro sound components and interfacing is always an issue to some degree. So far, this is a great transaction, fair price, HIGHLY responsive seller, excellent due diligence in packing and shipping, can only say good things about him. Actually, everyone I have dealt with here on this forum has been exemplary in every way, truly an amazing gathering of kindred souls! God Bless everybody, Chuck Snow
  20. Bill, Thanks. Sent a PM. I have a crossover now that makes a hummy sound...was only able to deal with it by inserting a mono Rane EQ I had lying around unused and attenuating around 60 cycles...kinda makes for a 'flicted subwoofer situation...I know about typical 60-cycle noise and this is somewhat different...got a super-duper line filter and conditioner that is typically used in Ham radio installations, plugged the AC mains into that, ran the output of the XO through a transformer and it is not due to ground loops...nothing I have tried so far would kill this hum...got new cables, yada yada...swapped channels on the power amp, hum went with...so I'm thinking a new, non-humming XO is in order. That is why I said if it does not hum I am ready. I am over this buzzing. How do bees take it? God bless, Chuck
  21. Bill, If it's quiet, I'll buy it RIGHT NOW... Thanks, Chuck Snow
