    khorn bass bin solution??

    I'm thinking about building HD false corners to put in my existing corners. I built my basement room with corners 16ft apart specially just for my Khorns. If I don't use my THT sub I'm still not happy with the bass. I feel like the sheet rock walls are too thin and flimsy to project the bass forward and just absorb the sound, its also a carpeted concrete floor which doesn't transmit the sensation of low frequency through the floor. Do you guys think adding false corners as described in the Dope from Hope would give me a substantial improvement or would enclosing them like a Khorn TSCM is better? Thanks

    Wire connectors quality

    Tin the wire? I've never heard of that before.

    Eyes To Look At Car For Me

    Owned an 06 330i, loved it, the handling and power were perfect. The plastic water pump went out, dealer wanted $1100 to fix it. Ended up buying one online for just under $100 and a friend helped me put it in, took about 2 hours. Sold it not long after that, just too scared of what might be next that I couldn't fix myself.

    Check these Cornwall IIs Out.

    Looks pretty much like a thin piece of wood with cutouts for the speakers screwed in on top of the grills....pretty much ruined them. Maybe he's just trying to cover up torn or poor condition grill cloth.

    CL: Klipsch Quartets - $700 (Kingsley PA) a bit high

    Had Quartets before and they aren't worth anywhere near that much.

    Another RSW 15 bites the dust

    That Behringer should easily be enough, wasn't the original amp only 650 watts? What about the Bash below.... https://www.parts-express.com/bash-500s-digital-subwoofer-plate-amplifier-500w-rms--300-752

    Another RSW 15 bites the dust

    All of us that have passive subs do it. Anyone who has built a horn loaded sub uses a separate external sub amp. I have a THT LP that is powered by a Bash 300 plate amp that I mounted in a wooden box that I built, it sits off to the side of all my other gear.

    Can't you simply buy a decent external sub amp and just run speaker wire into the cabinet and to the driver. Leave the shitty plate amp where it's at, disconnected and fully sealed. You will still have all the controls and way better reliability as long as you have room to add one more piece of equipment.

    How did they compare against the Cornwalls?

    TUBA HT Amp ?

    Bash 300 is what BFM recommends for Tuba, pretty sure he claims there is nothing to be gained by using more power.

    Bargain La Scalas found in Dallas

    Sounds like the OP has noticed an improvement with the AA crossover versus the AL which he compared pretty much back to back but it doesn't sound like a night and day improvement. Seems everyone here says how awful the AL's are but can anyone really explain the difference? I'm on the fence to replace the AL's in my Lascalas with either AA's or ALK universals. Are we talking like a 20% improvement or is it just some subtleties gained that most people struggle to hear?

    Khorns. Denver

    The ad shows a pic of the crossover...is that crossover missing a bunch of parts or is that how they were back in those days.

    I've loved Klipsch all my life but.....

    Looks like they are being demoed in a hotel room, audio show somewhere.

    New VTA ST-70

    That's the way to do it. I have the same amp and use it with an Emotiva PT-100 preamp, I get plenty of volume.

    Unboxing 70th's...

    That one box top looks like it is warped from water is that what it is? Who would let that happen, that would've really had me worried. Glad there was no damage.

    Looks like a work of art, even the older ones look killer.
  20. Well finally got it hooked up and it sounds great. I had a Yamaha A-S801 integrated hooked up previously and it was good, the HK 730 is better. I really can't believe it sounds better than a $900 new integrated. The bottom end is better the mids just sound more relaxed and overall it just sounds right. The HK has more than enough juice to hit crazy loud levels just as easy or easier than the Yamaha which is supposed to have a true 100 watts per channel. Very happy so far.
  21. The guy just retired and said he was just moving some pieces he had collected through the years. He had all kinds of modern and vintage audio throughout his home and said it all works. He said the oak wood case is super rare and that he rarely saw any even in the 70's when he sold HK's when they were new. He said if I didn't like it or need it that the case alone could probably sell for about $100 on its own, but I think it looks great and don't plan on getting rid of it. If I ever decide to part with the receiver I'm sure it will only help to retain the value of the unit.
  22. I went and grabbed it after I saw this post earlier today. Looks really awesome and sounded great. I'll be hooking it up to the Lascalas soon.

    New VTA ST-70

    I re-capped with caps from Bob Crites, so I should be good there. I'll try and get pics to show how they are positioned and some other shots of the room too. Did some testing a couple days ago using my Denon with an Emotiva UPA-2 amp and using the graphic EQ and some tone adjustments I brought some better sound out. Oddly enough if I stood at the farthest point back on the right side about a foot towards center I found the best bass. I was the only place in the room I felt I had what I was looking for. So could it just be my room? The front wall is 16ft across, the room is 22 ft deep. The right side up front has a 5 ft wall that then opens up wider about another 3 feet. That right side wall is just sheet rock and framing with nothing on the back side. Is it my weak wall? The other side is sheetrock against cement foundation (basement). Should I fortify that right wall or maybe consider heavy false walls as shown in the Dope from Hope. Maybe I'm losing all my bass into the room somehow and false walls would project the low end more effectively out into the room. I open to all options, its a music room only an no one to shut me down. Maybe enclose the backs with some heavy 3/4 plywood?

    New VTA ST-70

    So I had already removed the ST70 from my Khorns downstairs and hooked them up to my Cornwalls in the living room before I had a chance to switch speaker wires and try them to see if they were out of phase. With the Cornwalls the amp plays great, full rich sound with plenty of volume. Now I'm really stumped why the Khorns sound so thin, they really have almost no bass. Should I open it up and inspect the woofer, maybe it has an issue? These are 41 years old. Maybe the speakers themselves are wired out of phase and are cancelling each other?
