  1. Yea I suppose I should just look a single La Scala, those pop up every now and then. Even a beater La Scala would work really, and just paint it black. It has the B&C made in Italy which is the good driver. Hate to have to pay $1k for another single if I could even find one. I'd love to try a pair of them for sure, I've read your posts and others, I'm sure they are incredible.
  2. I'm using a Cornwall right now between a pair of Khorns for my center channel. There is a KPT 904 for sale locally for $400 which I know is a better speaker and it would allow me to pair up my Cornwalls again so I can either sell them or wait till my kids smarten up and want them. Any thoughts on if this would be a worthwhile move? Price seems a little high for a single, what are the chances of finding another single 904?
  3. 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
  4. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. Had Quartets before and they aren't worth anywhere near that much.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.

    SOLD

    How did they compare against the Cornwalls?
  13. Bash 300 is what BFM recommends for Tuba, pretty sure he claims there is nothing to be gained by using more power.
  14. 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.
  16. Looks like they are being demoed in a hotel room, audio show somewhere.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
