  1. zero sound difference at nominal sound - plus the Square magnets should sound better - you are downgrading - Alnico K77 round magnets demagnertise with time - ferrite square unirts dont - square units hit 16khz - round 12-13 max - That's what I heard, too. Note: My Khorns and Belle have square magnets, but I have some old round ones in the bedroom. They, too, "hit" 16 K, but not as loudly, I guess -- I've never done an AB comparison with REW. That depends if the round magnet K77 tweeter would have the copper beryllium leads - if they do they can hit 16k - otherwise they simply blow - while the square K77 with standard leads can hit 16k and not blow -
  2. The forum got a real technical analysis from the AEA guys - by a technically expert team that started a whole revolution in the sixties with Bands like the Allman Brothers - Here is a link to their history and humbleness - in comparison with other push-overs who are nothing other that Bullshit experts - http://aeaaudio.com/legacy-page/
  3. The AEA name resounds with high quality -we still remember the gear -no mistake as to who started it all -

    Any Boxing Fans?

    lousy fight - they never got into any kind of great boxing - what a lousy - boring - bullshit fight
  5. yeah - 1250 big ones for 30$ of veneer and a pair of H2 -

  7. actually any Japanese Amplifier will be better - and definitely Sansui - these were very high end quality and very tough - solid - and very long lasting -
  8. superb pair of speakers -and rare as well as they usualy are painted black - plus in Texas - great job -, one great quality of the KP 101 was the crossover -they were meant for Cinema so Vocals will be just right - http://www.klipsch.com/kp-101/details
  9. there was pair of awesome looking KP 101 in Birch raw - did you see these -
  10. I dont see why you are sorry - you are on the other side of Seattle - aint bad - and not very far for tons of deals
  11. yeah it seems so. it's a fc253hz horn just like Greg's V-trac. I'm going to use BMS 4592ND-mid on it. the tweeter is Beyma CP-25. for the lower notes I'll use a LS-like folded horn I've been tweaking for months not. I would say it's also very similar to Greg's Vittora bassbins. I'm not a carpenter but I can build things with wood. veneer is something new in my area but I'm working on it and experiencing different glues and ways of applying veneer on the BB plywood. for now it's a horn I built with veneered BB. not bad but not the end of my endeavor. we have 1ton air press in store and I'll soon build a vacuum bag press, then I would go for other sizes of Egdar style horn and maybe biradials 6952932a5b9142c5d5a70a9211290add46d9cd2e82f8c8b908236d9fa8d44f03.jpg beautiful -
  12. sorry - I do remember now - the EV 15W-K was the driver in the earlier 60's Khorn -
  13. 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 -
  14. I would buy a single square or round magnet k33E - the K33 threads are here https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/148475-k-33-e-vs-k-33-b-specs-anybody-have-factory-measured-ts-data/page-2
  15. I would think that (4) four 15 inch subs are required in the room - so adding two (2) 15 inch subs in the front of the room would be needed as a minimum if not (2 )18 inch subs -
  16. I am confused - CHORUS 1 is rated at 100 watts - you are suggesting 3x or 6x the rating - how can the speaker hold up with 3x or 6x the rating - aren't you going to blow components http://www.klipsch.com/chorus-floorstanding-speaker/details
  17. Nikko was very low end gear in the mid to late seventies - -
  18. I forgot to ask - how big are the woofers in the console -
  19. A kp101 would be a cheaper alternative and sufficient for the console - you would need a pair -
  20. unreal - my other question is how long does it take for the tarnish and corrosion to come back and does it come back quicker
  21. Tim - Sancho has 5 Heresies at ear level - I also use mine at ear level , which is where your Heresies will just shine -no risers required , although I would love to sample Heresies with a slanted riser - -I put my Heresies on top of my Cornwalls one day and they have been there ever since -would I have stands made , they would be 36 inches tall and capable of holding a 50 lbs Heresy - -the picture you see here is the perfect height , by coincidence - PWK had designed the Heresy with identical drivers than a Khorn to be a center speaker for Khorns -
  22. there was a similar pair for sale right here on the forum https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/147821-la-scala-ii-prototypes-for-sale/
  23. good luck with the sale and yes . the floor is awesome
  24. I have kids playing around my Cornwalls and Heresies all the time - so far no problem , they are just not appealing to kids - IMHO - always leave the grilles on -
