  1. I have seen SW12 parts on Ebay here and there in the past, including the amp. Keep checking and one should come down the line. You can also put out a want ad here and on Craigslist. If you wait for months and nothing appears, you can part out your SW12 and sell on Ebay. There might be someone out there looking for what you have. It's doubtful Klipsch would have replacement parts any more, but give a call. They are very helpful.
  2. With my experiences fixing voice coil buzzing, I've had to remove the plastic ring you're talking about. Coming from the magnet side of the basket(back side), you can use a flat head screwdriver to wedge in between the plastic ring and basket (screwdriver is now perpendicular to the woofer surround). Now move the screwdriver handle away from the magnet. This will pop the glue joint in a small section of the ring. Follow this glue joint seperation...gently.. until you get all the way around. I've done this with three woofers of different ages. The older the speaker has proven to be a more brittle glue, making the process easy. One that popped off well was an SW12. Another that was more tenacious was a KG 3.5 - that ring did chip in one place (grrrr). This is what I've done without any council so......I'd appreciate other comments. I hope this is helpful.
  3. Hi all, I've been a Klipsch fan for about 10 years now, but have just hopped onto this Klipsch Community. Have a question that's been in my mind for a while now. Looking at the specs for some expensive models (P-37F for example ) the frequency response seems to be starved in the low end. My technical knowledge will show here, but does the 'low frequency extension' make up for that? And how so? How does LFE in the P series differ from the RF-7's response going down to 32 hz? Thanks in advance for your knowledge.

    War Movies

    OK, this one should probably be near the end of your Neflix queue as far as a war movie. So after you've exhausted the others on this thread (excellent lists!), give this a try: Pan's Labyrinth Directed by Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy movies), it's set in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War. 1/2 war movie, 1/2 girl-and-her-imagination-movie. It splits these two plots quite equally. Subtitled and definately more drama than action. Leave your mind open for fantasy (yep, fairies and creatures) and you'll enjoy. I hope. I hesitated a lot before posting this, as this movie may belong outside this war movie thread......
  5. A truly great movie you must see and hear is Serenity. Came out in 2005. Right away in the beginning after the 'Universal' letters encircle the earth, your sub will rumble. It's a great Sci-Fi movie with.....a plot! This movie came from a tv series on Fox called Firefly around 2001.
