  1. 105 dB at what FREQUENCY at what DISTANCE? What was the input POWER requires to achieve 105dB? What is a "reference level peak"? Hmmm... Engineering minds want to know...

    WTB: Newbie, Interested in Klipsch in Texas, Budget Ideas?

    After 12+ years, my favorite is stacked KG4's + SUB-12's. I have ceiling corner locations on the short wall, with the stack on top of Forte' II's. I invert the bottom KG4's to produce a line-array of four 8" between horns near the ceiling and at seated ear-level. Room coverage is spectacular, and easily throws 30' into my kitchen/office. Titanium HF diaphragms from Midwest Speaker. Parallel wiring - series sounds awful - be careful of 2Ω load! ADCOM 7400 100W/ch handles them OK, 200W/ch GFA-555 is much better. Friends love it, newbies are awed by the gigantic immersive soundfield. You can easily build this for under $1200 at current prices. Photos to your direct email, they are all way over 2MB! Good luck!

    $5.00 1/8" stereo miniplug > stereo RCA cable or adaptor - and you are in business! Plug it direct into your power amp - the Chromecast app has a remote volume control! Perfect for esoteric audiophiles that eschew noisy preamps and unnecessary tone controls.

    Looks like Google is killing this because it can’t spy on you! All their other Home devices have microphones inside! Just ordered 3 direct from Gurgle at $15 + tax w/ free shipping. This will be the end of a great product. It beats all my analog and HDRadio tuners, and Spotify Premium on direct A/B shootouts! I'm NOT selling these, sorry I jumped the gun without pointing toward Google.com! https://www.androidpolice.com/2019/01/16/you-can-still-grab-a-15-chromecast-audio-from-google-while-they-last-which-probably-wont-be-long/

  7. Fabulous WiFi > Analog 1/8" mini output DAC. Closeout at $15 each, FREE shipping if you buy 3! I've compared mine to SONY & Sangean HDRadio tunas & Spotify Premium - easily whips them all! SOLD OUT at Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, everywhere else.

    KLF series tweeter diaphragms for sale... Price drop!

    Hello Moray James - No worries sir, no refund necessary, DCR = 8.3Ω. Surface is extremely sticky (?) so I won't try a Q-tip! I will keep them as spares for the dozens of vintage Klipsch speakers I've put into friend's music rooms. In the interest of transparency, you may want to post photos in your next ad - to avoid misunderstandings. FYI, I have 100% positive feedback on AudiogoN & eBay for 15+ years, 100% on PayPal & USAudioMart too. Happy Listening to you and all the Klipsch Forum members in 2019!
