  1. “I put ZERO thought into who does or does not like me or who finds me hard to get along with” That’s really all that needed to be said. You are certainly entitled to treat the world any way you wish. But the world has a way of getting even. Best of luck in the future.
  2. I find that in general, people have unrealistic expectations and little empathy for people employed in service industries. Generally, I feel that people hold the people providing them services to standards that they themselves would be hard pressed to meet. Ironically, I find this has gotten progressively worse over the decades in conjunction with businesses trying to provide more and more services designed to minimize inconvenience to their customers. As for the Amazons and other online sellers of the world, I am continually amazed at what they do and how well they do it. We use a variety of them often, for a wide variety of goods at a wide variety of prices. The problems have been minimal and resolved well within reasonable expectations. We’re Just lucky I guess.
  3. The frequency response curve shown on this link doesn’t worry me, even the apparent crossover related dips, I’ve seen highly thought of speakers with far worse. The distortion curves seem worrisome, especially for a Klipsch Heritage speaker. Are the distortion curves as bad as they look? Could something have been amiss with the speakers, or perhaps in the measuring technique?
  4. Not having the skills myself, I would have the crossovers tested. If the components are still within specifications, I would leave them alone. My understanding is that it is entirely feasible that the crossovers could still be in spec. I am also aware that opinions on this vary widely. And discussing capacitors can be contentious at best. I would not just arbitrarily replace them.
  5. Assuming everything is working to spec, please resist the urge to “upgrade” these. Original condition this nice deserves to be left alone.
  6. There are a lot of good things about forums such as this one. The one universal bad thing with forums is that someone will find fault with anything/everything.
  7. All original Belle’s that you have owned since new!? Do not tamper with PWK’s design unless something becomes obviously defective would be my recommendation! Consider me envious.
  8. Assuming that you have the space for them, in terms of being able to place them fairly wide apart and some flexibility in toeing them in, I would buy the Cornwall’s. And I would cross them over to the sub very low at 35-40hz or so.
  9. With apologies to the late Gordon Gow of McIntosh for basically stealing this, if your amp has a “voice”, it’s broken. 😂
  10. How about contacting the folks in the Klipsch Professional Department? They are known to have a Bonehead who probably can help.
  11. Some on the forum, including some Klipsch folks, should find this book to be a little light reading. 1000 pages. According to the table of contents there is a bit in it on that PWK fellow. http://www.hornspeakersystems.info/
  12. Keep the speakers. Build a new shed! 😂 Just do the best you can to place them high up in whatever you have for corners, angled down into the listening area. I don’t think inverting them will matter with no solid surface available above the woofer.
  13. When the man who designed the speakers says to place them on the floor in the corner for best performance, you should. The ceiling is simply the floor, upside down. So, inverted in the corners would be the correct answer, IMO.
  14. I suspect that PWK is livid. Everything bad he envisioned happening in having others review and measure his speakers seems to have transpired with this review. He felt that all speakers were corner speakers. Yet his very own legendary corner horn speaker was both reviewed and measured without proper corner placement. IMO Klipsch should be embarrassed for allowing this sorry excuse of a review to have transpired.
  15. Prepare to learn just how far down the rabbit hole these guys will help you fall! 😂
