  1. Happy birthday Paul W. Klipsch, thank you for all you did and for being the man you were.
  2. my condolences to Ritchie, family and friends. So very sorry for your loss. I will light a candle for Barb.
  3. you are right with a caveat, you can plug them in and listen and decide if you love them or not then if you want to to keep them you will need to support them. People tend not to listen and be lazy. You should not ship a KLF20 or a KLF30 with the mid motor in place either as it is heavy enough to break/snap off from the horn if the box is given a good shake. This is kind of the same with the EV DH 1506. If you don't shake them or drop them or move them not problem but they do need a shelf or a brace or a hangar to hold the motors weight. Great driver the DH 1506, like Bob Seger said "like a rock".
  4. Altec A7 with 811b.my first store bought speakers, I wanted but could not afford a pair of Valencia with 511b horns
  5. EV DH1A drivers are true S.O.T.A. compression drivers, there is nothing else like them and the more compact Neo motor versions which use the same diaphragms.
  6. some brace work is going to be better than no brace work, this is minimal so don't expect a big difference. ferrofluid can have more or less impact upon driver damping (internal resonances) depends on the driver. The correct viscosity would be required and you don't know what that was so you are in the dark. A generic shot in the dark will at the least provide some extra heat transfer. Get some and try it, if you like it leave it in if you don't remove it.

    it's ice at the outer edges!
  8. Why don't you have a look see for a pair of Peavey FH1 cabinets, it's a better horn and a better cabinet (a tiny bit larger). It's not very likely you will beat the $200.00 price but if you can find them local that would make all the difference.
  9. RIP Dave and condolences to the Mallette family.
  10. The first 47 characters say it all thank you, "you can do what ever you want to your Klipsch speaker".
  11. that's reproducing harmonics only everything over 6KHz. now imagine if you improved all the fundamentals and upgraded the mid?

    no that's a deal! (the round ones are hard wood the flat one are soft wood)
  13. Those horns should never be shipped with the drivers mounted to the horns. you can repair them.
  14. Best keep a ball lock in that hitch if you want to keep your camper.
  15. a used pair of Peavey SP1 but at the age they all are now a xover re cap will be manditory. be careful they will spoil you as they are better than a La Scala.The CH1 horns were designed by a couple of engineers who had left Electro Voice after Don Keele left EV. They are the real deal but they can be found for peanuts.
  16. I can tell you right now that 36" won't happen as Noel does not have packaging that size and shipping revolves on how the carton is packed. Folks almost never consider this and a custom pack is simply not worth it. I can tell you that you are not likely to find a better pack job for a pair of speaker stands, Noel has it down to a science.
  17. looks like some sort mutant embryo face huger from an Alien movie. all kidding aside yes jumper wires with spade and or banana connectors are to be preferred to the stock flat plate factory jumpers.
  18. if you have adhesive issues then you will (or do) have issues with both the front and the rear baffles as both are installed with the same hot melt adhesive. If you plan on taking them apart then do yourself a favor and repair both baffles all in one process and don't wait to repeat later on when the other baffle starts to make noise. You should remove the melamine from the baffles (not hard to do) at the glue joints and then you can bond with white wood glue (PVA) which will last forever and be far stronger than the original hot melt joint. You should install brace work while they are open (also remove the melamine to bond brace work). I have rebuilt two pairs of the three I have owned including swapping the vents from the rear to the front on a pair I built for my daughter while she was away at school in smaller quarters, the front vents allowed her to place them close to the walls to save space when it was at a premium. I regret that I did not flip the position of the mid and the tweeter by cutting off the top of the front baffle and flipping around as this will place the mid horn closer to your seated ear level. Hope this helps
  19. did you check with Atlas for data on the mid driver? I found the following in 20 seconds third listing on my search for the T35 this is the T35A. https://mypicsonline.net/archive/archives.telex.com/archives/EV/Horns/EDS/T35A EDS.pdf The polars are taken with the tweeter with its long axis in the vertical position (the way it was designed to be used).
  20. I know how you feel. I had a stroke last July and I am working on doing as little as possible to de stress as I have a massive dual jugular clot so I am taking warfarin to keep it from growing while my body slowly eats it up. I was having seizures which turned out to be caused by stress and so the dr.'s order to do as little as I can for as long as I can. Really tough to do nothing. Hang tough and look forward to getting better you will get there, summer is just around the corner.
  21. 4:30 am for me its 5:30 now! Best of luck with the shot. Only thing I can say is not for me I have a very low trust level of big Pharma and government and together they make/share billions perhaps trillions of profit at our loss.
  22. I understand that but you could use a top quality full range driver like this for your project, place a grill over the mini Khorn cabinet and install this behind it. That is unless you want a really tiny speaker then you could get a two inch full range driver but you will not get any bass response while these play as low as my H3 do though not as loud obviously. Just so you understand that you cannot scale a horn, the desired cut off frequency will determine the physical size so a tiny Khorn or Belle won't make any bass but you can make a tiny look alike Khorn using a direct radiator rather than a horn it will look the same but the direct radiator will make bass. This tiny Tannoy DC (dual concentric,two way) driver is just a little over five inches across the frame so you have a sense of scale. With a horn loaded tweeter it is a two way which is exactly what Paul Klipsch always wanted the Khorn to be, trouble was for Paul he could never get the Khorn bass bin to go high enough to crossover to a domestically sized mid horn and so by necessity it turned into a three way design. Paul worked on the idea of a two way Khorn for decades until he and Roy Delgado came up with the Jubilee which was a two way horn system exactly what Paul had intended the Khorn to be.
