  1. They are great for movies and very easy to get set up and sounding good. Inch for Inch I have not heard better . Contrary to popular belief these do like lots of Power. I noticed a world of difference going from an AVR to seperates.
  2. Really nice ! Doesn't look like you have to worry too much about neighbors.
  3. I've never heard one but I am really attracted to the look of that amp . Enjoy !
  4. You came unarmed last time we had a battle of wits ...... and now you want to try again ?
  5. I wish ! the system is currently disassembled due to having to move it . I will get pictures up this summer when I finally get a chance to set it all up again. Unfortunately I have not been able to use the CT8150's yet ,so that will also have to wait until this summer. Sorry I am of no help at this point in time and even sorrier I haven't been able to utilize this system as of late.
  6. FWIW I think buying a 2 year old vehicle is probably the smartest way to go. Letting the original owner take the big hit . The hit isn't as much as it used to be but its still considerable . You do lose out on some warranty , which all you have to do is answer the phone the next time it rings and someone will be offering you one. I personally prefer the more optioned vehicle and once you've had it a little while no one will be more impressed with a 2022 vs a 2019.I tend to drive the wheels off a vehicle so for me , the enjoyment of the additional options over 10++++ years far outways the additional cost spread out over those same years. That being said I bought a new 2020 Duramax Chevy HD in 2019 but I really wanted the 10 speed vs 6 speed Transmission .I use it mostly for towing and it is amazing ! I started looking at used vehicles but it ended up at the time that I could go new for only about 5K more, gain a few new features and a new warranty.The market was different then. If you buy the used one just make sure you can get your money or most of it back out of it if you decide you don't like it . This way you can move on easily , won't be as easy with a new one . Bottom line .....Even I don't listen to me but those are my thoughts .
  7. I certainly hope not. He has a wealth of knowledge and is always so helpful here.I even bought a Xilica and and a XMC-1 figuring if it was good enough for him it was certainly good enough for me. I was selfishly hoping I could lean on his expertise when I get around to setting it all up.It would be a huge loss to the forum.
  8. I should probably clarify. For Music they are awesome for Home Theater when there are long gaps between lfe they will go to sleep and they don't come out of the sleep mode for a couple seconds after the initial lfe signal. Doesn't seem like much but it is a little annoying . The sleep mod will cure that. So for the K2's I'm going to use for Home Theater Sub Duty I will and I suggest the sleep mod.
  9. They are great for subs , the dampening factor is phenomenal but the auto off can actually be a nuisance, the subs don't come on in time during lfe. There is a mod which I keep meaning to do to overide the sleep mode. It is just one jumper and if you google it its easy to find
  10. I think you guys are misunderstanding , thats on top of the THX Ultra II system , 3- MCM Stacks, 2-LSI Splits,2-LSI's, 2-LaScala's, 6-KI 102, 4-KPT200's ,and whatever SSP's ,X-Overs,Amps,etc
  11. @ClaudeJ1Yes ..... It was an expensive day I was there to purchase your Lab 12 .I got to hear the THT that you had already sold and it was impressive. We went upstairs and listened and I was blown away by the pair of DTS10's you had. Decided at that time I was going to get some one Day. I finally got one several years later but still would like another one. The K402's Well......... I was mesmerized ! I had my MCM 1900's for a short period of time and nothing even came close until I heard the K402's . My jaw hit the ground and I drooled so much you joked about getting Lobster bibs for the next time you Demo'd your system. Like @Dave A says .Blame it on Claude well that day has cost me about 4K so far and will probably end up closer to 5K in speakers alone , never mind crossovers , amps ,etc
  12. Those are impressive ! I've never heard those bass bins but I would love to hear them someday . Anybody who has heard K402's will tell you how magical they are. GLWS
  13. @Dave1291 Thanks for the heads up they are very talented . Never heard of them but I would have wondered down the street to see them (Bath/Fairlawn Area) . I see they are playing in St.Charles at the Arcada 4 days before I go there for some medical tests. St.Charles is my hometown and the Arcada Theater is where my 3 MCM 1900's and 2 MWM bins came from. It's pretty cool that my Home Theater and soon 2 be up and running 2 Channel Speakers are the very speakers I saw all my Movies from about 1975 -2000 on.If I could sneak out early to see them I would.

    @WestcoastdrumsI might be missing it but I think your price disappeared
  15. I have read where the K1 sounds better on mids and highs .I personally have not noticed this. They sound almost identical to me ,if not identical. However I never set it up where I tried to compare them head to head.
  16. They are my latest additions . It's HP 42U Server Rack
  17. My Home Theater has been uprooted due to my fathers poor health and me taking care of him now. But soon It will set up like this I have 3 MCM 1900's for my Left ,Center , Right, If you look at the rack from the top you will see a D45 which will run the MMTM, a K1 which will run a MSM and a MSSM, and a K2 which will run a MWM .So times 3 that will chew up the first 9 Amps. Next will be the 2 Crown 8150's they will run the Front Wide Split LSI's , Rear LSI's . Sides 4-KPT200's , Atmos 6-KI 102's The last 4 K2's will run Subs , I have 1 DTS10 and would like to add another , I am also thinking I will add 2 Devastators to go with. I have 1 Xilica XP 4080 and will need to add another along with an Atmos Processor
  18. I have been amassing these amps since October of 2013 and just received the final one last week. The tower consists of 7-Crown K2's , 3-Crown K1's , 3-Crown D45's , and 2-Crown CT8150's. It also has 2-SurgeX SX-1120-RT's to protect the amps and an ADJ switch to control some external server rack fans in back just in case it does get a little warm in there .
  19. Parts Express had the Tweeters with the horn for really cheap a few years back. So cheap I ordered 5 just to have in case there was a problem. Found this I hope it helps https://reconingspeakers.com/products-page/klipsch-kl-650-thx-tweeter-k-135-an-129108/
  20. This is what I was questioning. There are many great non horn loaded bass bins and subs but I find this statement misleading.
  21. You forgot one word in your last statement.....properly.
