  1. You are only reading the woofer or woofers impedance at the binding posts. 3.5 to 4 is normal on a Klipsch speaker. The caps in the network "block" a reading of the HF. Ya nominal is 8, but not gonna see that with a meter
  2. Would rather sell center and surrounds with stands together. Would sell the sub and XF-48's separately
  3. OK, I so messed up and truly sorry. Pair of XL-12's on on the stands, not XL-23's. Was getting ready for a weekend bike trip and never noticed how I listed, guess I should done the review post...dang it
  4. Pair of XF-48's, XL-23 center, pair of XL-12's with XFS stands RT-10d black SOLD
  5. If it is flat on the floor that would be an issue, angle it up if it is not already. Anything between you and the 2.2? Table? All the drivers working? Both woofs and the tweet? There is only 2 dB diff between it and the 4.2's Even angled the better solution is no more than 2 feet above or below the mains A KV-3 offers the same 95 dB rating as the 4.2's, but maybe hard to find Today new the KC-25 would be a good match and offer 98 dB, but you still need it off the floor even a foot would help
  6. I like Acid Blonde........I will attend this year....O wait a sec...I work here so ya I will be, never missed a single one Hope or Indy
  7. email promedia@klipsch.com We tried the email address you have in your forum account and for some reason it would not go through
  8. There is no reset, it could be a loose cable between the display and the features board on the amp, or the feature board has a problem. If you email technicalsupport@klipsch.com and let us know when and where purchased we could help from there
  9. Picky....I missed you down there, well we all did RF-7 II's with RC-64 II P-39F and 60ths in the room as well 60ths close to the corners, P-39F next with RF-7 II next Pwered by a Jamo reciever, they did well with reciever power..... I had the Gallery room around the corner using the G-28 for the LCR and G-12 as side surorunds with a SW-308 sub......I would like to hear some feedback on that system. They sound great. Room was 16 1/2 wide and don't recall depth but most sat about 12 to 14 feet back Other than that it was HOT, nice to be back here where it's 66 right now......Hunter and I stayed a week, Trey is still down there on vacation
  10. Built in 63, I did not do a thing to the K-77's or the K-55-V's, all were fine and original
  11. Had K-33-P woofers ( cones were gone), replaced with E's K-55-V mid on K-1000 horn K-77 Alnico, has the chrome horn lens Type K-1000-5000
  12. They are working time fine now. I went into them Replaced the woofs and caps. They sound very good if not great at least that is what I think.
  13. In a conventional horizontal, WTW (woofer, tweeter, woofer) center channel both woofers are in parallel (seeing the same signal) and respond up to the crossover frequency of say 2000 Hz where the horn tweeter takes over. The problem with this approach is pronounced hot spots and nulls in the response as your listening position moves to the left or right of center. In other words the tonal balance of the speaker is inconsistent or varies quite a bit as you move laterally off of the tweeter axis. The cause of this is common midrange information coming from two different acoustic sources (locations) on the front of the speaker. A tapered array takes one of the woofers and rolls off it's upper frequency range at a lower point than the other woofer. This gives one acoustic source for middle and upper midrange frequencies (the other woofer and the horn tweeter). Both woofers still contribute to bass and lower midrange frequencies, which are less directional, and the lateral dispersion from one end of the couch to the other is now more consistent. I hope this helps.
