  1. any info is helpfull, as i have a guy that wants to trade me for my utility trailer ($500) value
  2. i had this problem once, and believe it or not, it turned out to be a bad RCA cord
  3. absolutely an amazing purchase, and i have to agree, beautiful collection
  4. i think maybe MARVEL is right. maybe the khorns have a different bass than i,m used to. all of my conections are good, and proper, and everything in the cabinet checks out fine too. i hooked up a 20 band eq, and it helped alot. i will purchase a good 12"-15" sub, and i think all will be ok. regardless, the khorns are now part of the family. '
  5. all of my polarity seems to be correct, and on the woofers too. the bass i have is very "tight" (like comparing a 10" sub in a car to a 15" in a car). the bass i am expecting should be a much lower, more room shaking kinda bass.
  6. ok, i sealed all of my edges with pipe insul. unfortuneately, not alot of difference in bass. the bass i,m getting feels like a thump in the chest, but kinda hollow. very nice if these were a set of technics or something, but they,re k-horns. i also swithed over to another yamaha amp. its 120 per ch. its an av style "htr-6080" i do however have a blown tweeter, which i ordered a pair of k-77,s from crites, but highs are not what i,m lacking.. i would really like a deeper, more room shaking bass. any recomendations on a decent sub?
  7. so,basically the edges of the long 3-4" board running up and down, and the top wall edge of the main bin? am i getting this right?
  8. will the pipe insulation make that much of a difference?
  9. ok, awsome! i have a much better understanding of the cabinet now. thnx marvel
  10. the distortion point that i,m getting at higher volume is my little yamaha gasping for air. i will try all of the other things as well. i,ve been tweaking things all night, and its coming together for sure.
  11. is there a link that somebody has, where i can see this? i know these are not your average speakers, but would like to learn about how extreme they really are.sounds like i need to be re-educated. ok guys, teach me please
  12. things are sounding alot better. placed the k,s on the 14ft wall, night and day difference. then pulled off the wheels, and got a much deeper bass. they sound pretty good now, but nowhere close to where they should be. they do sound good enough to notice that i have 1 tweeter that is blown, so that will be replaced imediately. i start to fall in love with the sound when i get up around the distotion point with what i have on hand. i sent the guy an email for the tube amp in the link that joker posted. this is food for thought: with this cabinet being a "ported" enclosure, has anybody ever covered the rear "port" and cut out lets say 2 or 3 3" ports close to the bottom of the makeshift cover for possibly an improved bass response? has anyone tried this? anyways, i,m defineately pulling the khorns off of kijiji as we speak, the wife and i are not gonna part with them. time to add some power and some more tweaking. thnx guys
  13. i,m gonna pull the wheels off of them 2nite, as well as move then into the 2 good corners on the 14ft wall. if that dont work, i,ll try the foam technic, and if that dont work, i,ll try the false corners. please keep posting ideas, i,m sure i,m not the first k-horn guy thats going through this. i,ll keep you posted on the progress thnx in advance, colin
  14. i,m not a burnt kinda cd guy. i,ve actually done the same as mentioned above and litterally thrown out a brand new cd because the recording was crap, so i,m 100% on track with you guys on that one. my favorite recordings are anything that is x masterd like maddona or lidsay buckingham for example. they dont cheap out on quality. as for the model of yamaha i have, its a rx-v692. it has treated me well for many years, running a set of vivid,s and then later a set of cerwin vega at 15,s. i dont mind spending money if i need to, as long as i,m sure its gonna help. i am very suprised to hear that timmins has deals on anything. i deal in a lot of classic car parts and have always found that they were way off on thier prices. maybe its the recent mining boom thats got more money floating around, therfore dropping thier prices on used stuff? i,ll have to check it out
