  1. I have fou d a nice wide sweet spot by aiming the speakers about 1' behind my head. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  2. You should be able to find some freeware online to resize your pics to a smaller size so that you can upload. There are also online websites that you can upload your images too, and then it resizes to uour desire. Then you just download the new file and upload here. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  3. Lol...no one told me that in the 80s. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  4. A friend of mine has a HT in a 10x12 shed that is fully treated....He runs LaScalas for the front channels, and I have to say it sounded great! Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  5. Do you get any slapping with the woofers being closer to the mounting pad? I was thinking of actually adding a little space qith my Kappa 15Cs. How much clearance would the Mortite give me? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  6. Pm sent... I have Ammonia Ave, and Eye in the sky in 5.1. One of my Elvis Costello albums shocked me at the dynamics one night. I was just using my phone to measure SPL. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  7. I sure wish I could hear the Alan Parsons albums demastered...one of my favorite groups. Have you listened to the 5.1 versions too? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  8. @rickmcinnis Did you make your ports 10 to 1 compression...if so I do not see how you could change the size now without patching. On mine I used a 45 degree router bit to chamfer the woofer side of the woofer mounting plate. We chamfered down to about 1/8". Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  9. I have used the recommended center channel speaker in the past when I had Paradigm speakers and it is not as good IMO. In my last HT with JBL 2360As I used identical speakers for the front channels, and in my current K402MEH setup I also use identical speakers for the front 3 channels. If you want the best sound you need to use the same for each of the front 3 just like a Theater does.The center channel needs to be as good as your left and right as during movies it is the most important speaker in the front.

  10. Why not go active? A friend of mine is using my old La Scala bass bins with EV horns and drivers as 2ways in his home theater and they sound great. He is doing it the budget way with MINIDSP 2x4s, but you could go with a 3x6 crossover if you want to stick with a 3 way. You could also get the B&C 2 way compression driver, and then go with a 2x4 active crossover. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  11. They have not gone bankrupt as far as I know...I just saw a recent Youtube Video with 2 of them and they were talking about the new Jubilee anniversary edition. In addition I get emails all the time from them on sales of their products. Have you looked at the Klipsch news area they have contact info. It is possible that they do not have anyone working the phones because they are working from home... as they are not essential to have in the office during a pandemic. If you are not happy with your speaker...return it before your return time expires. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

  13. When I was in the Air Force I really got into audio equipment too, and before I got out I also got a pair of La Scalas. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  14. The carpenter missunderstood me, and that is why I ended up with a one piece cabinet. I think the way he did it was easier for applying the veneer though. I have not used any measuring equipment yet. I hope to have my new amp done soon so I can get Chris to tune ot for me. I think the bass I have with a cabinet is more than I have with the left and right without a cabinet. I will most likely have him do it the same way for the others,but I will have the rear panel access a little wider so I can get the woofers inside easier. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  15. I just searched using Tempest Search which searches Craigslist all over the USA, and found a pair listed in Bend Oregon for $1500. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  16. Have you tried Tempest Search...it searches Craigslist all over the USA. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  17. I finally received the Sennheiser 6xx headphones that Fedex lost for 3 weeks. I really like them, but they are def a bit darker sounding than the 402MEH. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  18. I like the Yamaha p2500s qmps...plenty of power, sound great, cheap to pickup used (I bought mine for around $200 each), reliable and they have fans if needed.i hqve never heard a fan even comein in my new setup or my old setup. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  19. The stuff I got was from Amazon, and it cost me about $120 to do 2 layers of each type for the full cabinet.. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00URUIKAK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_cwfhFbT5NXHX9 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TKXMPH7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_qxfhFb33DCFAB I hear you on the weight... I think mine are around 200+ lbs each. Sent from my SM-G985F using Tapatalk
  20. Looks great, and I bet it sounds even better! Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  21. How do I know if I need to use any stuffing, and or pyramid foam (for reflections) with my cabinet? My external dimensions are 25" wide (front), 17" deep with it being 13" wide in the rear, and 47" high. I am using 2 Emminence 15" Kappa C woofers with the EV DH1A compression driver (which is huge). The cabinet is 3/4" thick except for the front baffle which is 1 1/2" thick. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  22. Who are you asking...if it is me use EV DH1As... I think they are 6 or 8 ohm. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  23. https://www.spoonflower.com/tags/speaker%20grille I found out about this on AVS Forums. Sent from my SM-G985F using Tapatalk
  24. I am in Mexico, but the place that prints on their material is in the USA. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  25. The horn mouth is not really unsupported...the woofer pads are attachrd to the front baffle and also the horn it self. The front baffle is 1 1/2" thick, and is beveled on all four sides where it connects to the horn (it is under pressure when the screws are installed. I did this by laying the horn face down, and then laying the cabinet in place. By doing this there is a good amount of weight on it when the screws are installed) It is rock solid. The woofer pads are sealed to the horn ports with silicone adheasive and it sticks like glue... I have to use a putty knife to seperate them. As far as a faux finish on the horn...I am going to try and make a woodgrain grill for it. I found a place that has acoustically transparent material and will print whatever you want on it... I am going to see if I can get a goid pic of a sheet of veneer, and then photochop it onto the horn pic. I will try and match the image. Also the cabinet is one piece eccept for the rear panel now. Today I installed some dynamat type matetial and it providrs additional sealing...I assume. Sent from my SM-G985F using Tapatalk
