  1. Here you go. Thanks for taking a look!
  2. Not sure, I have to decide if I want to send in for a rebuild or buy new. New our decrease my "down time, but it is $200 more. Mine are from 1978, so not sure if the rest of the parts also need replacement from age.
  3. Thanks! It is helpful. I suppose I can try the new crossovers first and see the difference, and if I wanted to get the C120's later if I want.
  4. OK, so if I go that route, do I stay with the AA crossover or get the a/4500???
  5. Been doing a lot of reading on various forums and wanted to get an opinion from the fellow members here. I've got a pair 1978 LaScalas with the original innards. We use them as a home theater watching TV, movies, and sports (when not in a pandemic). Occasionally I will fire up the turntable and spend a few hours spinning some vinyl. I am considering making these modifications: A. New Type AA crossover from Crites with tweeter diaphragm replacement or B. New A/4500 crossover with the CT120 tweeters. Cost is about the same, so that's not much of a factor. I am leaning towards option B, but the purist in me says this changing too much from the intended original design. Like is a Chevy still a Chevy if you replace the engine? Would appreciate any thoughts on the topic...
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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?
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Thanks @billybob! I always thought the threaded holes were to attach to mounting brackets, but I guess not!
  14. 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
  15. 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!
