    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 -
  3. 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 -
  4. 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 -
  5. 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 $750 DAC when your computer sound card will work just as well? Heritage speakers when Synergy's will do the job? Jeesh. You get what you pay for. I strongly Disagree with the Dac comment, However I strongly agree you get what you pay for ESPECIALLY with TOOLS, there is a right tool for the job in every situation I have ever encountered and I have LONG been an ADVOCATE for buying the right tool ONCE, This is one of my peeves with my dad he will buy the cheapest tool to get the job done and wonder why the results come out as they do, I had to stop working WITH him, If I do anything for him now he must leave the area and allow me to do it myself Just watched a 10 minute video on the festool and I can tell you that thing looks like the RIGHT TOOL, Looks like they thought of everything. If I ever get back to woodworking I can say I would get the track saw before I would buy another table saw I was honestly curious about the saw and was not attempting to speak ill of it (I love tools, about as much as audio) finding a good tool always made me Happy here is the video -
  6. the poly are not as harsh as the titanium - IMHO
  7. the tweeter diaphragm is where you should look to see if they are poly or Titanium -- the stock klipsch were poly although there some new titanium units that some call pretty harsh - open them up to see what you got
  8. excellent overall - except that scratch -I figure the cat also likes the speakers
  9. they made these cabs with MDF -and that can go ways into great sound -as the cab is sealed -these cabs can be repaired by only changing the damaged panels -motorboards look ok to me - Chorus are always black in the front -
  10. any older 70's jap amps - yamaha mostly - absoluty awesome
  11. great work - keep up the great work -
  12. you are much better off - removing the dust cap on the other K33 E - and measuring it - then just replace the dust cap -
  13. these speakers can be reconed for much cheaper than replacing the whole woofer - 100$ maybe
  14. betcha , the nurses must be happy of Dee 's improvement -
  15. OR me - really mint shape - for pro speakers - I can imgine these are not sold yet
  16. everything here in California is overpriced. wrong - gas is 2.75 in NY -
  17. you can unscrew the k55v and split the driver whithout damaging the diaphragm - this can give you a look at the diaphragm - you can see if it is damaged or scratched and even dirty - by comparing both , you can also swap the drivers halves and test them that way - -if you can return them - do it before it is too late -
  18. you cant beat rear wheel drive though in the mountains , however that VW can handle good on straights and bends but not mountains
  19. 392 cubic inches is great but it sure must -s--k on gas -these huge pistons can ingest a whole lot of fuel - although that is much better than an R/T 440 Magnum - that 440 must have been 5 miles per gallon
  20. one pair of 2 way Jubilees is not enough for your application - 2 maybe at least and they have to be 3 way - the problem is the warehouse which will sound very canny -these carry 2 12 inch woofer per enclosure - and than is simply not enough - maybe in conjunction - that would give you a better sound - more detailed -but still not enough for 350 people that create a lot of noise on their own - so you need to over-ride that sound and that means 2 twice more sound to deafen that noise before actual music is heard - then again for wider dispersion - you are missing the K402 horn and k69 driver - with that it would be an entire different animal - -figure 2 pairs of jubilees - 3 way on the 4 corners plus the MCM for the bass - that would be really good -but since you already have a pair of Jubilees and 1 Mcm- that aint bad either -
