    I believe you're mistaken. Panacea has a post count of 67.
  4. That sucks. Sounds like what I run into with craigslist all the time. I didn't think it was suppose to happen here. Good luck on your search.
  5. Hmm...didn't realize UMG was also blocking that video stateside. It only told me Germany on my end. Not cool. Thanks for the heads up. Well, that's to be expected to a degree with not being able to compare to the first one."It Could Be Sweet" by Portishead typically sounds like this through the web: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKlrUHAZWQ0 Is that without any midbass bump? Sounds like it on my end but I like it. Sounds alot like Sade to me.
  6. I'm gonna pull an "Ethan Winer" here and let the golden ears decide. Grab the earbuds and listen to this, paying particular attention to the quality of the bass: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Om3BvwaE5d8 Then listen to the second song in this one: In the last video, is the subwoofer actually passing a signal? First one didn't work due to the country of origin.[:^)] The second one the bass sounds so horrendous I cannot make an honest comment [:|] Maybe I should have just stated that an emphasized midbass is not natural.
  7. I cannot make sense of that. Please educate me... Dave Wow, this one slipped through the cracks! Sorry for the delayed response Dave. midbass The range of frequencies from 40-80Hz http://www.stereophile.com/content/sounds-audio-glossary-glossary-i-m I realize that you're into some very deep bass. That's cool...very cool. However, I'm referring to music where the kick drum is just that....it kicks. I usually put a bump in the 40-80hz range of my PEQ that is eqing the subs. I've had subs in the past that were capable of digging much deeper....and when trying to play them "deep" with typical rock and roll music that relies heavily on a pulsing, chest pounding effect type of bass the "deep" bass was always lagging behind. Very cool....but never fully "in" the music.....slow. I'm not saying it's neccessary to try and break everything in your house. It just seems that the mid-bass frequencies and up are the most "musical" and they are the most effective for most types of music. Not discounting "deep" bass...I think it needs to be there for the full effect but emphasis on mid-upper bass rather than deep, infrasonic bass will be more articulate and accurate. You will not win that argument anywhere in the audiophile world Scott. Anything to change the natural characteristics of the music or musical instruments will be in direct conflict with the goals of the audiophile world. But after saying that I am with you on the midbass punch and enjoy it immensely. I have a pair of subs that excell in midbass slam but if i want to listen to music in a critical matter they are turned off. Once you overlap your mains with a sub which between 40hz-80hz which actually the punch tends to be more towards 100hz you have left the fidelity of your main speakers. Overlap is overlap and it just becomes personal enjoyment but it is not accurate and never will be.
  8. http://audiophilereview.com/audiophile-music/rip-then-sell-your-cds.html Just an FYI.
  9. Keep it smooth, balanced, tight and let er rip! Stone Sour anyone!
  10. The word of the day, "need". Obviously one persons "needs" are different than anothers. In all seriousness though, my Chorus II's are capable of giving great listening enjoyment without any aid. It is those times when I really want to raise the roof I am able to do so without making my Chorus carry the burden. Let the "club" subs feel the strain. It also doesn't neccessarily take high volumes to feel the music either. It just adds another level of enjoyment to my music experience.
  11. [Y] I figure since I have a "club" amp might as well have a pair of "club" subs. I'll be back later I'm headed to the "club".[]
  12. Give me pitch definition over a rumble box anyday!
  13. Looks like a reincarnated GFA 555MKII. Has 50 more watts in 8ohm stereo and 100 more watts in bridged but everything else inlcuding 4 ohm operation is almost identical. Sorry to hear about your 5802.
  14. I made a comment about that in another thread because I feel for people that are having issues with that woofer. Just from three of us here on the forum which is myself, SWL and a mutual friend Mike we had 9 out of 12 woofers that were bad in our KLF 30's. That is just to name a few of us that have had issues. Seems like unless someone buys off of one of us Klipsch members they are buying KLF 30's with bad woofers. I got a replacement from Klipsch and had to send it back because it was bad from the factory. There is a problem somewhere but hopefully it gets worked out.
  15. Takes a stout amplifier to control that 15 inch woofer in the Chorus II but it can be done.
  16. The Quartet is almost 4 decilbles less sensitive @1watt/1meter. The specs say it will play 1 hz lower at 38 whereas the Chorus II is 39hz but since you own both you know that is almost hard to believe because the Chorus II seems to play lower as well. Basically the Chorus II does everything the Quartet does only bigger and better. Now if it is floor space you are looking for then the Quartet is the obvious choice. I will leave with the obvious disclaimer that this is IMHO.
  17. I feel for you. Out of all the speakers I've ever owned I have only had problems with one woofer and it would be the K-31-K. Klipsch told me after I bought my first batch that you couldn't purchase them any longer. This was about a year ago so I hope things have changed and the old K-31-K production line is back up and running. I have just never seen so many failures as this particular woofer.
  18. Well maybe there shouldn't be but to my ears that statement is way off.
  19. The XLS's aren't in the same league as alot of other Crowns either. Personally I like the Crown K series and the QSC PLX/SRA series.
  20. I love mine. It doesn't shut off at low volumes and sounds awesome on KLF-30's. Do the earlier K-2's look different than this....or is their appearance the same? Same.
