  1. Are they measuring and compensating with eq? How different are the curves with the zxpc horn vs what we have seen posted for say the 510?
  2. Good flexibility, you just need to make sure the horn and driver actually sounds good. No eq will fix a problem there.
  3. If you just want to take the raw response of the driver without any eq and also hope that the crossover points are "close enough" based on the components in the crossover, grabbing a pre-made crossover is fine. When you want to use a passive (or active) that provides reasonably smooth frequency response and crossover, it will need to be more accurately tailored for the driver you are hooking up to it. Really depends on how accurate you want things and if you will be happy with just that, something that is more generic.
  4. Why active? It will really matter on what driver you are connecting to it as to how hard it will be to manage with a passive network, or active.
  5. It would not void the warranty. You are not doing anything to the speaker itself. No different than using something like a long run 15 meter run of 24 gauge speaker wire hooked only to the high frequency section of the speaker.
  6. Recognize this is not optimal but will likely work unless you push your speakers very hard.
  7. If you have availability to resistors such as https://www.parts-express.com/mills-1-ohm-12w-non-inductive-resistor--005-1 You can remove one of the straps on the back of your RP-8000F speakers (where they can by bi-wired) and replace the strap with the resistor. That can provide a slight drop of the horn in output.
  8. A one or two ohm quality resistor in place of the strap going to the high frequency may do the trick and take the edge off.
  9. Those settings should have brought up the midrange some and made a warmer sound. The highs may still be a little "in your face" depending on placement and room treatment.
  10. If you still have the pins, I find this acrylic glue has a deadly hold and can be good for fabricating small pieces. Dropped my Jasper circle jig and router on the floor, busting out the areas in the jig. Didn't want to pay $40+ again. Got this glue, filled in the broken out areas and re-drilled to match original. Worked great. Forms a very hard acrylic bond and is just like lexan when hard. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003HNFLMY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  11. Kind of what I was thinking. As they wanted to make the Cornwall III a Heresy with better bass, the nicer mids of the Forte III or even perhaps going back to phenolic for a lower crossover on the midrange vs Forte III would likely be nice addition called Chorus III. Then Klipsch would have my interest once again.
  12. Have you started running the RP-8000F speakers full range?
  13. Good to hear. Sounds like a better starting point for you. Do some changes from there.
  14. Disable your AVR Audessy and run the 8000F's full range.Set the sub for around 60hz or lower, match the output. You might be quite surprised.
  15. Quite reasonable. BTW, if you are posting here, some will question your sanity.
