  1. it is a bit funny , you mean , that the shipper just happened to have a spare woofer laying around -
  2. the same happened to me with shipping a k42kp woofer on ebay - the woofer magnet sustained a knock -the box was evidently very badly packaged with no padding - yep - some people just dont package correctly and dont bubble wrap - -sad to hear this - hopefully - the cabinets are ok -
  3. here are the Vertical and Horizontal directivity plots whether in Vertical or Horizontal orientations http://www.neumann-kh-line.com/neumann-kh/home_en.nsf/root/prof-monitoring_studio-monitors_midfield-monitors_KH420#
  4. I really like that idea, it makes the speaker much more versatile however it's used. here is how Klein Hummel describe the setup of their Tweeters and MIDS whether horizontal or Vertical - Quote : The mid‑range driver and tweeter are mounted on a fully enclosed (sealed cabinet) sub‑baffle with sculpted baffle wave‑guides, which K+H call MMDs, or 'mathematically modelled dispersion' waveguides. The sculpted baffle is made from the same LRIM (Low Resonance Integral Moulding) material as used in the O300, both to provide controlled dispersion over 80 degrees horizontally and 60 vertically, and to avoid edge‑diffraction problems. If the monitor is to be used on its side, perhaps as a centre channel in a surround system, the sub‑baffle can be rotated to suit very easily. https://www.soundonsound.com/sos/feb09/articles/kleinhummelo410.htm -

    these bikes can go to the end of the world and back in stock form - I am sure wire wheels must be lighter and would transform this bike for off road -the lighter this bike is , the further it will go -and the mechanicals will react quicker - be better on fuel -any reduction in unsprung weight is criitical -as this is a big bike - what a beauty you have there - I know a few guys who have the older units as Cult bikes -hidden away -

    Wow, congrats, great looking system you have there! You have a beautiful listening room to enjoy the LS. I've also been a big fan of Yam 'Natural Sound' amps for years, using a CA2010 controlled by a Carver C4000 pre-amp. Enjoy! are any of these class A amplifiers Yes, the CA-2010 and its little brother CA-1000,1010 can be run in Class A. In Class B the CA-2010 puts out about 120wpc; in Class A only about 30wpc, and the amp gets siginificantly warmer when in A mode. Spec-wise, Class A supposedly offers warmer highs and a tighter bass, but my ears aren't able to discern the difference. Your mileage may vary, of course .Class A amplifiers are the best out there -and the most expensive - congrats on the amps - running so hot can damage an amplifier that is not true CLASS A - and do very serious damages as well , as ALL components are run at maximum, output all the time - any damage aslo requires the replacement of a lot of parts -and most technicians have a hard time reparing class A amplifiers -
  7. Actually the idea is not nutty at all , a lot of big band Technicians do that all the time while they are on tour as spare drivers are not always available - they hear the rubbing and they have jigs to re-align the cones -if I remember well - the EVM series woofers have the voice coil as a seperate part for over 30 years -
  8. gfong, The original square magnet woofers you have now are better than the new K-33E round magnet ones. Personally I would have the one you have fixed if possible by a competent professional or recone both. Bob Crites replacement woofer was designed around the K-33E square magnet woofer from my memory. I've owned multiple pairs of Klipschorns and LaScalas at the same time. My brother in law lives about 5 miles from me and owns Klipschorns as well. I took a LaScala over to his house and we personally switched out and A/Bd the K-33E round magnet woofer, the K-33E square magnet woofer, a Crites steel frame woofer, a K-43E steel framed woofer, a K-43E Cast frame woofer, a K-44E cast frame woofer, and an Electro Voice EV 15W-K woofer. The K-33E in square and round were used of course in Klipschorn, LaScala, etc., K-43s were used in Pro LaScala, and MWMs, the K-44E was used in Pro Klipschorns = TSCM, and the Electro Voice EV 15W-K was used in early Klipschorns (the "K" denotes Klipsch) The Electro Voice EV 15W-K sounded the best to both of us, and I am going to be selling a pair of these that have been fully restored shortly, but you are talking several times the money of the Crites cast frame woofers. PM me for pictures and a price, but I wont be able to reply until Friday. I know a reconer in Ft. Wayne, Indianna that is the only guy authorized by Electro Voice to recone their obsolete speakers that's work cannot be compared to anyone elses and he could fix or recone your speaker or speakers correctly. His name is Tom and his phone number is 260-494-1677 Roger hi - Roger - can you send us a picture of this EV 15W-K - is this a 4 ohms speaker - or 8 ohms - just curiouds to see this beast - I always fancied EV products - they absolutely sound great versus the Eminence - by the way - Klipsch is making woofers , that was shown in the Hope Gathering this year - as well as new mids for the SCALA - I am curious if KLIPSCH will have a replacement in house made K33 - thanks a lot Roger - one can see that quality was once not an object - those EV woofers were just the best for KhORNS
  9. Probably if used standing up, they probably stood them up for a picture, they are made to lay down. I really like how they made the new Ki 362 where the direction of the horns can be changed. Being made to be mounted either way for commercial instillations it makes things much easier, or to lay down for a center channel. pro quality Studio monitors are all designed where the direction of the horns can be changed -here are the best out there - the KLEIN HUMMEL , simply by removing the 4 screws and rotating the mids and tweeters assembly
  10. for sure - The proof is that regular Cornwalls are time aligned - plus if you add a k400 to a Cornwall - Voila - super Cornwall - super midrange - the horizontal plane is the ideal for sound quality - Now - if you lay the CW VERTICAL on it's side like in this picture - the horns are in perfect alignment and must definitely sound a lot better than a CW vertical standing upright - -dont forget that most JBL and EV were designed with the woofer and the drivers in the vertical plane - so maybe PWK was trying to ride this wave as well until he finally went for the Horizontal placement as the ideal

  12. the vertical Cornwalls with grilles are to me more appealing than the non-grilled CW Decorator - it's a lot cleaner look - wow are these nice - Klipsch really did a very nice job with that design

    crash bars are essential to protect ones legs and in this case the cylinders as well -just as long as they dont interfere with the cooling fins - plus these have liwuid cooling so that should be fine
  15. yeah -all you have is to edit your profile -
  16. nice veneers - 2k $ FAIR PRICE -
  17. modern amps all pretty much sound the same - class D amps are not the best -however - try a class A and you will never go back -
  18. double that - they grow in the North country -
