  1. What I heard is pro is for train stations, airports and pro wrestling events and not suitable for home use. Why would anyone even think of doing so is beyond me. Hmmph!
  2. https://www.newegg.com/western-digital-blue-1tb/p/N82E16820250088 Back up to $100. I am a simple guy and spend enough time screwing around with CAD programs and learn this and learn that and update all the time. I believe more than what is neccesary to do the job is inviting complications and more to fix and take care of and in this case does not gain me a thing to go down that road. A 2TB secondary hard drive and leaving my PC on when I want to play music is the way to go and I don't have all that other stuff to hook up set up fix up maintain and trouble shoot on down the road. Dell to Xilica to amps to speakers and I fail to see the need for more. Plus I get to mix and match or whip out Audacity and play with files if I want to. Really nice 6 core Intel 9 cpu boxes with 1tb ssd + 2tb secondary are maybe $700 now on dell refurb site and ONE device will do all that music stuff.
  3. Put an ssd hard drive in there and all that spinning platter noise goes away + everything is much faster. What model do you have? Newegg has WD 1TB SSD's right now for just under $90
  4. I use a dell workstation. It has a Quadro graphics card which i never did figure out how to hook up to my Xilica. In the mean time I was wandering around the web one day and ran across a High Definiton software upgrade for the crummy Realtex sound card on my PC board. Installed the update and it was day and night different. I need nothing between my PC and the Xilica now and the sound is quality is superb and can output 192khz at 24 bit. Free from your sound cards web site the very best thing you can do.
  5. I have about given up on 402's and I m in the market for 6 of them right now. Looking at alternatives to buying 402's or 510's new from Klipsch because it runs the price up on selling used gear. Surely here is a horn lens and driver out there new that would sound as good for less. The 510 I mean not the 402.
  6. Say Carl I wonder if you have managed to finish the hot sauce yet?
  7. Thinking about a portable screen and projector so I can play star wars.heh heh.
  8. I have thought about bringing various drivers and horns I don't think I will have a use for and maybe a rack of gear, amps, DSP EQ's etc in it.
  9. I have to admit I would not change out the woofer either. Do a recap and maybe replace the tweeter and that is all I ever do with these.
  10. Too much smoke is right and that's why I was asking about his set up. Best I have ever seen is a drop fire box and no burning anything directly under what is being smoked.
  11. Well describe your smoker and what you are burning and where is the fire?
  12. Wow Claude you hear that? Committed AND finished!!! I am taking a trailer and you can stop in here and ride with me the rest of the way if you wish.
  13. This was kind of my point when I mentioned the crossovers were different and the wattage ratings are too. Roy has mentioned that all pro speakers have greater headroom than homeowner types.
  14. Wonder why Klipsch has the two Chorus and the 301 rated different?
  15. Here is something to consider. The KP-301 is basically the same driver set but rated for 200 watts vs 100 for the Chorus and the only difference I can see is the crossover. Perhaps changing the crossover would be best and I can tell you those 301's are more speaker.
  16. YES to hard pass. You don't want to pay for someones Frankenstein when the electrodes may be ready to fall off.
  17. I like how his sales are private so you can't contact past customers. I see private sales it is no sale to me.
  18. I will be bringing my Super MWM's Xilica xp3060 with 2 crown xli800's one DBX drive rack and one DBX graphic EQ in a rack. UMike and Laptop with REW and TrueRTA leaded Three way speaker I am building possibly a Super heresy
  19. OK I will look into it but it will be a bit before I do. I am swamped right now.
  20. For the bass bin or the whole setup with I assume your K-402's on top? If just an LF crossover I would like to see a picture of it and a list of components. Are you using the Klipsch PEQ's for the bins? I have to admit I got one running tonight with the PEQ's in the Xilica for the S-MWM and probably not optimal but hate (no I don't I loved it) to say the S-MWM is clearly better. That may change as I get time to dial the 415's in and get a horn on top to go with them.
  21. Let me ask you this. Would YOU be willing to pay another $50 to get an anodized set of tweeters if it ends up costing me that much to do adding in shipping two ways and the anodizing cost for small lots?
  22. OK did you jump the two woofer sets together off one amp or use two amps? Let me rephrase that. Did you use one channel per pair of woofers or tie them together and use one channel per bass bin?
  23. Not so. There is a particular font or logo that may be copywritten but I can write University of Michigan 12 Ohio State 43 any time I want.
