  1. I was talking of the Trade Secret https://www.tradesecret.ca/scratch-removers-for-wood/ dark bottle for Walnut , it works on raw veneer , it's dark oil
  2. the tangent larger 400 series, the cabinets were made with fiber board , the cabs were not veneered and there was use of vinyl
  3. 4 to 6 inch horn ????? ,the most common horns have a throat diameter of 1,4 or 2 inches
  4. @wayneair you can get a much better finish on these speakers if you buy a bottle of ... TRADE SECRET ...dark formula , sold on Amazon
  5. Toronto is definitely a big City and Ontario is huge, since you like the Forte , there are 4 versions , the Forte speakers have bass , lots of bass , , I would go for the Forte III since it was a very big improvement over the Forte II , it is crucial for you to audition older LS speakers , because the new AL-5 2 piece cabs do not sound anything like older 1 piece LS cabs .
  6. they dont make em like they used to
  7. Lascala and Forte speakers are completely different speakers , the Forte is a bass reflex cabinet with prominent bass , the LS is a folded horn speaker with much less bass , but the mids are more articulate due to a larger mids horn , I would recommend that you listen to a pair of Lascala and see if they please you , on the other hand , the Forte IV is a serious improvement over a Forte 1 .
  8. the Chief said it could be done , but how ? may still be a secret

    Technics make excellent turntables , whether new or used ..... as long as the TT is in good condition
  10. call kipsch tech support or email tech support , they can help you , no one on the forum can troubleshoot issues with the 1200 without real tools in a lab , VIP read the information posted online by klipsch
  11. a dust cap is a dust cap , as long as it's the correct size
  12. keep the old wiring , clean up any corrosion on the Autoformers , check the zener diodes , the 245uH coil requires a brass screw .
  13. you're very right , clean SS power is the way to go for the long haul , no tubes to replace ever , no adjustments needed , no tune-ups , no repairs for 10-20-30 years , the perfect example , with an excellent pre-amp , Yamaha A-S-1000 or 1100 or 1200 , and yes quality matters , a cheap SS amp will not do
  14. JEM is a klipsch parts vendor , the installation is easy , do not twist wires or leads , do not use too much solder or heat , you can use crimping tools , the capacitor lead should not be compressed or twisted .
  15. the Conwall III in this thread are not a Heresy III , but they do share the same tweeter , mids horn , mids driver , if you're close by to Location 78414 , check em out

  17. hard wood flooring would avoid allergens , carpets except Persian rugs also contain chemicals , wood remains cooler with excellent sound properties .
  18. here are some dust caps /no lip on Ebay there are plenty of sizes available https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313&_nkw=speaker+dust+cap+no+lip&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_odkw=speaker+dust+cap&_osacat=0
  19. the stains can be removed with a magic eraser , TRADE SECRET sold on amazon will remove the scratches and it will oil the veneer at the same time , the contents are coconut oil mixed with colorants , no VOC's , no chemicals ..... wipe it on to restore the natural finish , that 's it .

  21. a replacement amplifier for the KSP -400 would have to power a 15 inch subwoofer + the drivers , you could turn the powered speakers into a passive speaker with a crossover , but you would need to power the subwoofers separately .
