  1. Don’t stress to much guys. I am an Electrical Engineer, if I blow something up it is my own fault.
  2. I am excited. Hopefully I can fix it. Thanks Youthman!
  3. The vinyl was coming off my RS-3’s it pealed off easily. I would give them a good sanding, mask off the faces, then paint away.
  4. As @Youthman said, With the masking there was no way to have a vertical center without it being way to high. I have heard that a vertical sounds better. Not sure where that comes from. When I built this center I did testing by moving around my towers and swapping with the new center. After a couple hours of testing i could tell zero difference in the horizontal center and my original vertical towers. My testing concluded that the height of the horn was way more important than the orientation of the cabinet itself. as said before, the horn was rotated to keep the original orientation.
  5. Those version 3's look fantastic. i would expect the 12d to be a good addition to them. That is a great setup
  6. The swap for the K77M fell through. He had them also listed on eBay and they sold. After all the good input here I think the real issue is the crossover anyway. There is a slight difference between the K77 and K77M but it really takes a back burner to the AL crossover that nobody seems to like. The AA crossovers from Crites are $324 shipped. Definitely not something I am going to buy right before Christmas. At least I learned what is needed to get these Lascalas sounding better.
  7. In deang's tread he says we would need to source the autotransformer from him but says not to ask to buy the part until he anouces it on his Facebook page. (This was in June). I can't seem to find his page and don't want to harass him. Has anyone seen this posted or can point me to his page or another source. thanks to all!
  8. This is awesome. I have had no such luck searching. And yes, I totally missed when you posted this so thanks for pointing it back out. It is so easy to miss stuff on a phone. i am still interested in the conversion thread if anyone runs across it. I have searched but no luck yet.
  9. I can definitely solder. I will do some digging. Like you guys said. May be easier to start from scratch. We will see. Thanks.
  10. Great info! I would have to see some scematics. I can't help but wonder how much modification it would take to convert AL to AA or just build my own AA. I know Crites sells them built already.
  11. BTW. We love the bright sound and never have thought any Klipsch to harsh. Can someone tell me the difference between the CT125 and K77M.
  12. Great info, thanks! Would you mind elaborating on how noticeable? Were they brighter etc.
  13. Had to wash out the pic just to get them to show up. I figured someone would say "no pic...didn't happen." ;-)
  14. We watched Star Trek Beyond last night. The RS-7s really showed out with that one. Plenty of action scenes. This was the first time the surrounds didn't sound like surrounds but just sound from the correct location. There is nothing small about the sound. I set the crossover to 60Hz as suggested by Tasdom. Sounded great. I will play with the settings but honestly it is hard to do A-B testing with my memory.... The RS-35s did well as Atmos speakers but honestly have nothing to compare them to. The combination of RB-61 rears and RS-7 sides seemed to be a great combination. RB-81s may be a closer match but honestly I don't know if you would even be able to tell the difference. Sound that wrapped around you felt seamless. During Dolby into fx I could really tell hey sound very much the same where before the 35s didn't have the same sound as the fronts at all. I also installed 3 acoustic panels (also courtesy of Youthman) directly above the beanbag. It may be placebo effect but the center vocals seemed clearer. Hard to get a picture of black on black.
