  1. or just use a pex tubing to a copper pipe with sharkbite connectors - zero tools or solder - zero corrosion issues - and they are re-usable - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX-p8fJBav8
  2. Swensens - ice cream shops is a quality above - http://www.swensens.com/storelocator/index.html

    I see that now - you say you used regular plywood or was it birch - how did you glue all these together - you added brad nails as well - I suppose - did you add any plywood to the top portion of the Scala bin - since I see that it is split -
  4. Wow, what a great idea. Some of your guys have irreplaceable knowledge and although some of that can be found on the Forums, putting all that info in one place is a great idea. I glanced at the Wiki page. It is sparsely written and is out of date. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klipsch_Audio_Technologies And you're right, Gary. That comment (discussion actually) on "honkyness" needs to go. Would you care to start a new thread so people who can update the Wiki article can coordinate and collaborate? funny to say - but Honkyness - could very well be a southern expression used at the factory by some workers as a slang - and we all know that PWK had his own and unique slang -
  5. First of all - Wikepedia rarely make errors as they research the subject in a historical perspective - compiling a lot of data they extrapolate to make a summary - silk has been used in making diaphragms for a long time and may be still used today - re-inforced of course - we all seem to forget that the EARLY diaphragms were either made by University or later on by Atlas and eventually EV -so Klipsch per say never made their own diaphragms -but University and EV did use silk in their diaphragms - -PE has these University silk diaphragms for the 1828T - http://www.parts-express.com/ev-genuine-replacement-diaphragm-591235001-for-electro-voice---university-id30ct--300-132 Here is an article that is conclusive -for the use of silk - http://www.audioholics.com/loudspeaker-design/loudspeaker-drivers/diaphragm-material

    I see you also changed the wiring of the speaker - so that should also be a plus here , versus the lamp cord -

    If you will recall, I originally designed my Quarter Pie bass horns with this woofer. It is more efficient and the greatest benefit is in extending the midrange performance of the bass bin, where our hearing is most sensitive. I had them in my Peavey FH-1's for years (what I call a "cheap Scala" and a much better W horn horn than the Klipsch version, but I digress and it ain't real Klipsch. It greatly improves detais for sure, but you can't buy one new. It has to be an old frame with a recone, which is why I found the Eminence Kappa 15C to be a cheaper and more available alternative with similar perfomance in the mids. and a little bit better bass. Claude - since we are on the subject now which is best overall for detailed mids and more bass -a K43 ---EV 15B - or Eminence Kappa 15C

    thanks for the info -
  9. I couldn't disagree more. Building cabinets 30+ years and never had a problem. Any good straightedge and circular saw can replace a tracksaw. cant be more right than that -but it does require one to be skilled -
  10. 640For saw. Two rails at 129 each. Clamps are 39 each. And vac is 475 I thought the 640 included the first 55" rail....................Guess not they nickle and dime you on the accessories - big time - and they are very delicate stuff as well - the saw is as small as they get - but you gotta be careful - as the tracks can bend - the plastic can break - so easy does it - if you want it to last - the vaccum is a neat job , and it works -though -
  11. It seems the hypocrisy is strong in this thread (this is tongue in cheek, don't get offended). Look at how much members here pay for gear. A $750 DAC when your computer sound card will work just as well? Heritage speakers when Synergy's will do the job? Jeesh. You get what you pay for. I strongly Disagree with the Dac comment, However I strongly agree you get what you pay for ESPECIALLY with TOOLS, there is a right tool for the job in every situation I have ever encountered and I have LONG been an ADVOCATE for buying the right tool ONCE, This is one of my peeves with my dad he will buy the cheapest tool to get the job done and wonder why the results come out as they do, I had to stop working WITH him, If I do anything for him now he must leave the area and allow me to do it myself Just watched a 10 minute video on the festool and I can tell you that thing looks like the RIGHT TOOL, Looks like they thought of everything. If I ever get back to woodworking I can say I would get the track saw before I would buy another table saw I was honestly curious about the saw and was not attempting to speak ill of it (I love tools, about as much as audio) finding a good tool always made me Happy here is the video -
  12. the poly are not as harsh as the titanium - IMHO
  13. the tweeter diaphragm is where you should look to see if they are poly or Titanium -- the stock klipsch were poly although there some new titanium units that some call pretty harsh - open them up to see what you got
  14. excellent overall - except that scratch -I figure the cat also likes the speakers
  15. they made these cabs with MDF -and that can go ways into great sound -as the cab is sealed -these cabs can be repaired by only changing the damaged panels -motorboards look ok to me - Chorus are always black in the front -
  16. any older 70's jap amps - yamaha mostly - absoluty awesome
  17. great work - keep up the great work -
  18. you are much better off - removing the dust cap on the other K33 E - and measuring it - then just replace the dust cap -
  19. these speakers can be reconed for much cheaper than replacing the whole woofer - 100$ maybe
  20. betcha , the nurses must be happy of Dee 's improvement -
  21. OR me - really mint shape - for pro speakers - I can imgine these are not sold yet
