    So, Why Was the M40 Abandoned?

    This is incredibly frustrating. I have asked support if they THEY won't make them, maybe they will give me the design to give to any of these 3rd party manufacturers that already make them for other brands.

    Klipch M40 ear cup torn advice on repair

    I also have the same issue, both ear cubs popped apart at the same time. I got a pair of those replacement ones and they don't have that "ring" that the originals have that mount to the headphones. I hadn't thought about cutting that ring off, I may give that a try.

    KSW-15 vs. R-115SW

    I currently have 2 KSW-12's (one front, one back) in my HT set-up with my La Scala fronts and Chorus II center. Curious as to if either of the 15" subs would add anything overt he 12's, and if so, are the reference ones any better than the KSW-15? I see a few KSW's on craigslist from time to time, and the R-115's are mostly new since they are the current model.
  4. Yes, they are nice! I do not have the desire at this point to sand and refinish, and I don't think they need it My question was more on what to use for regular cleaning maintenance...lemon pledge? Murphy's oil soap? Just a damp rag/paper towel?
  5. I picked up a pair of La Scala's tonight locally from 1978. The code says Birch Raw, but they are not bare wood now and I assuming they have been stained. Any suggestions on what to use to clean them up - any kind of furniture oil or polish? They are in pretty good shape... There are a few chips/nicks here and there that can be expected for speakers 40 years old...would be it wise try and "color in" the chipped areas with a matching stain?
  6. I am currently using 4 x KG 1.5's for my side/rear surrounds. I have had them for many years and usually just had them placed on the floor since I didn't have room for stands. New house, new room more dedicated for the theater set-up. Unfortunately our builder was being a pain so I couldn't pre-wire, but I may suck it up and do in-wall/ceiling. Any recommendations on models what would fit my set-up? In-wall vs. ceiling?? Thanks, Joel
  7. I have a pair of Chorus II's for my fronts and asked the same question about 2 years ago. I got a similar response at first (...another Chorus II),but others responded in a smilar way as you above! I patiently waited and watched criagslist for an Academy center, Forte II's, or Quartets. Lucky for me, about a week into my search, a really nice pair of Quartet's popped up for $275, which I jumped on. As it was a pair, I still have the "extra" one sitting off in the closet. Joel

    Speaker mounts or stands for KG 1.5

    Thanks @billybob! I always thought the threaded holes were to attach to mounting brackets, but I guess not!
  9. Hi All - I am currently using 4 of the KG 1.5's for my side/rear surrounds. I have had them for many years and usually just had them placed on the floor since I didn't have room for stands. New house, new room more dedicated for the theater set-up. Unfortunately our builder was being a pain and I couldn't get the surround points wired prior to the walls going up, otherwise I most likely would have done in-wall/ceiling speakers for the surrounds. My question is with the KG 1.5's, are there any recommended mounting brackets or speakers stands? The bottoms have some threaded holes that I resume are for brackets or for the stands? Would appreciate any thoughts/guidance. Joel

    Chorus II lack of bass and Belle replacement?

    Thanks everyone for the thoughts. I am going to play with the AVR settings, as I think that's the issue. It's a Denon X2100W. The question about the Belles was not necessarily meant as a fix for lack of bass, but more of a general question...I always loved the look of them and I have the space for them (but not Khorns), and they were locally available. I have honestly never heard them but was intrigued. But the points made on a 2 channel vs. AVR set-up may have sealed the deal to stick with what I've got and tinker/fine tune, rather than replace regardless of the bass. Thanks again to this awesome community!
  11. 2 Different questions for the group... My current set-up is front Chorus II's, center Quartet, KG1.5's for surrounds, and 2 powered 12" subs. 1) Comments regarding the Chorus II's include raves about how good the bass is of the Chorus II's stand alone, but I am not hearing it. I am going to try to re-balance my Denon receiver, but even on Pure Direct mode there doesn't seem to be that lower frequency rumble/pop coming out of them that I had expected. Could it be something with the speakers or crossovers? I've felt this way since I got them, but the sub seemed to make up the difference for television, but not so much for music listening. 2) Someone locally has put up for sale a pair of Belle's with AA crossovers (1979?) but newer sonicaps. Some cosmetic issues and they are more than $2,000 for the pair. My question is if they would provide enough of an upgrade over the Chorus II's for a home theater set-up? I usually watch movies, but also occasionally listen to music (typically rock), so I would want the best speaker for that. I think the Chorus II's have been great for movies, but have not had that punch for movies. I added the 2nd sub in the back and that has added a lot, but like I said with question 1, it may be a re-balancing issue I will look at tomorrow. Thank you for your indulgence!

    Confused - Sub input vs LFE

    OK, great, thanks! Appreciate all the input!

    Confused - Sub input vs LFE

    Thanks - So will it make a difference if I just do one channel (L or R), or should I use the Y connector and do both?

    Confused - Sub input vs LFE

    Thanks for the reply - Any reason why they would have gotten rid of the separate Subwoofer input?

    Confused - Sub input vs LFE

    My KSW-200 is having some issues and I am looking for a replacement. Locally, several folks are selling KSW-12's at good prices, but I am concerned about the inputs. I have read the Klipsch FAQ's and the online manuals, but need some help interpreting what I am reading. Simply, with my KSW200 I have a single RCA sub cable going from my receiver to the sub. Plus is does have Line In L/R, and Line our L/R RCA jacks. The KSW-12 does not have that subwoofer input jack. It has RCA L/R. IS there a reason the KSW-12 doesn't have the Sub RCA input? So I am confused as to how I would set this up with the single sub cable?? Maybe I am overthinking this? Thanks in advance, Joel
