  1. Just an FYI: this is the alerts section for posting other peoples ads, might get better exposure/results in the garage sale section...
  2. a link to the for sale ad would be helpful for those interested, not just a pic from the ad.

  10. opinions differ greatly on this subject... but heres what mr crites says about break in for tweeters & other drivers. & after all they are his tweeters so he probably knows best. Q: How about break in time for drivers or new driver diaphragms? A: Yes, and depends on the size of the driver. Tweeter diaphragm probably break-in at a matter of seconds. They are very low mass and move very little, so any break in would happen almost instantly. Probably happened when the factory tested the diaphragm after manufacture. Midrange are a bit bigger and have a bit more mass. Break-in is probably on the order of minutes with these. Woofers would take the longest. I think that break-in on a 12 to 15 inch woofer would be less than an hour played at pretty good volume using music with a lot of low frequency content.
  11. you're entitled to your opinion. i agree different types & brands of caps sound different, thats not at question here, i was just posting what bob says regarding the subject of capacitor break in. anyone can disagree with anyone but he knew what he was talking about & many other credible people agree... but then again some dont. personally i dont know which is correct, but i know i didnt all of a sudden one day say to myself, "hey my caps are broken in now!" i've done quite a few recaps, nowhere near what you or others on here have done or at the same level, but for the most part they sound the same after the first day as they do a week or 6 months later... nothing physical changes in a standard polypropylene cap like a woofer surround that does need some break in time. but im no electrician so i will leave that to others to debate. i also agree lots of folks dont hear or notice lots of things, but on the flip side im also well aware lots of folks "think" they hear or notice something but when put to a real blind A/B test they cant reliably pick between the average capacitor, speaker wire or RCA cable... placebo effect is real.
  12. listed or sold? & what condition/finish were they? not doubting you at all, but i check this midwest area regularly & havent seen any chorus 2 in average condition for over $1000 in quite awhile... except on ebay. aside from the ones i mentioned above, i actually just saw/missed a pair of mint black chorus 2 with the original shipping boxes for $800. the same seller also had a pair of custom piano gloss black chorus2 that looked great for $800 advertised & agreed to take $600 for them, but the timing didnt work out for me & he sold them pretty quick locally. not saying they dont come up for $1200-1500, but those prices are definitely on the very high end of current market prices in this area & usually only seen on ebay & even then they sit for many months before they sell & its frequently a best offer accepted sale. but as we all know, klipsch prices are all over the place lately.
  13. just now seeing this thread but heres what bob has to say about capacitor break in. personally i notice no difference on my recaps from the first 5 minutes to an hour to a month or longer... Q: Do components have a break-in time? A: Some do and some don't. Capacitors would be a definite NO. Let's look at this one a bit. You have new good quality capacitors installed in your crossovers. Capacitors have exactly two qualities that effect the sound of your music that goes through them. Those are capacitance (what we use them for) and ESR. ESR is the sum of all other qualities of a capacitor other than capacitance expressed as an Equivalent Series Resistance. ESR is a bad thing. Good caps have ESR so low it is barely measurable, on the order of a couple of hundredths of an ohm. ESR is made up of stuff like the resistance of the leads and their connections to the foil inside the capacitor or stray inductance or dielectric absorption. So, we put our new caps in the crossovers. These new caps are right on the capacitance value the design calls for and the ESR is almost unmeasurably low. What exactly of these two qualities do you expect to change with break-in? And if either of them changed, why would you expect the sound to get better since the only way they could change is to go away from the "perfect" values they had to start with? I hope any caps you use in your crossovers are good enough that they do not change at all for many years of use.
  14. thanks. fair price for the sb's. but you got 2 pb2000's for $600? thats a great deal. were these the ones you said the guy flaked out on or a different sale? & please give a review of the pb's when you get a chance, how much better or different are they than the sb's for music? movies?
