    To late I own the xti's. There is plenty there to satisfy my needs and this setup does not require much power.

    Whether they are the best or not I don't know but I have migrated to all Crown commercial amps. The best consumer amp I ever had was an Integra 50.4 which had the power needed for most things out there but I did not like the sound nor the Audessy room EQ thing. I know nothing about that Beringer but DSP is the way I am heading. Chris A and Claude both recommended the Xilica over the rest for DSP so what I am personally going to do is two Crown xli800's and the Xilica XP3060 and feed it all from my Workstation. I did get a DBX Driverack Pro from a buy a month ago and bought the mike that goes with it for room EQ. They can be had for $200 used + microphone and it worked in my environment better than the Integra did. Here is one for you. Miniman "Praises to the King"

    Got both of them running tonight and I can only imagine what these will be like dialed in. I will get that and let you know. I have a copy of the 1812 but not a very good one.

    Here is a picture down the throat. Next here it is with woofer in place and wired ready to close up. Here is a side view and for those of you without a 402 my hi-tech modular support milk crate gives a size.
  5. OK Hatrack you get your wish. Cleaning up the shop again today and I have moved it for the last time. Drivers removed and cabinet going to the ridge top graveyard. These parts will be going to Hope too where I hope they sell and I don't have to hassle with packing and shipping.

    I only had one running yesterday and places were rattling in the shop I had not heard before. Not that the volume was all that loud but the notes were that low. Today see's #2 done and in place so stereo earthquake. My wife said she could feel it in the house. Stop in when you are in town. Say you don't happen to have a good rocket or jet engine or helicopter recording do you? Wonder what artillery would sound like heh heh. You helped it happen!. This is iit and a significant improvement over the MWM and all I want. I am not a fan of super deep bass since I don't watch movies. I had a set of EV-TL440's here which were rated at 20hz and they just hurt to listen to. These seem to go almost as low but are not painful and the definition is much better. The kind of surprising thing is the amount of bass I was missing out on with music I had no idea had notes that low in it. I mean the same songs sounded good with the MWM's but the bass is deeper and more defined and even the bass notes the MWM would play this S-MWM does so with more feeling. It is a space hog though. I had finished a set of 1" Baltic bass bins for a set of LSI's and had stuck one of my larger tweeters in there in the separate horn bin. I was really liking them until last night. With the S-MWM on one channel and the beefy LSI on the other it was pretty shocking how thin and puny that poor LSI book shelf speaker sounded. It has everything to do with that. I knew I would have to dial this thing in and have the Xilica and REW ready to go to bi-amp and set crossover points and EQ when I get back from Hope. I just cobbled something that would let me hear it. Now that KPT HF crossover was designed for the 1132 driver but a much smaller horn and the LF side crosses over higher than the final setup will. But I got to hear it. Anyone who wants to stop in is welcome just call or PM me first. This is not a passive crossover system with a 106" effective horn depth and will need to be time aligned in addition to the rest. I have to get an extension handle for my paint roller to finish the inside before one of you asks why I did not paint it all. I reached in as far as I could.
  7. Anyone from Orlando coming to Hope? Would you be willing to pick up a speaker and bring it with you if you are?
  8. It came out of the KP-115. One driver. I have no idea what they are really worth so I just priced it $70 lower than the same ones on EBay.

    Well I fired the first one up today using a KPT456 split crossover. No fancy stuff no EQ no bi-amp just a crossover not really meant to.cope with this beast. This bass bin so completely overwhelms the 402 that it is ridiculous. Won't have time to do more than get the second one up and running before I go to Hope but let me tell you that you are sitting inside the bass drum and large organ pipe with this monster. I don't believe I will be looking any further unless I add another horn for a three way.
  10. Came in a set of LSI's with KP-115's needing serious corrective measures. This is the wrong speaker and it is massive. If anyone is interested $120 delivered to Hope. Mailing this is possible but will happen in a week or two because I have to do a box search first and it will happen when I manage to get to town and look. The only ones like it on EBay right now are $199 each. Ohm meter and frequency sweep generator going with me to Hope so anything I bring you can check out there.
  11. I just used a set of E crossovers to build an AA. Change the buss wire to all odd number terminals on the barrier strip, (if I am remembering wrong I am sure someone will correct me here but I don't have it in front of me) add a 13uf to the two new 2uf's and you will already have a correct autoformer and coil. I use better aftermarket tweeters so I just scrap the zener's and take them out. There was also a set of AA's recapped with Sonicaps for sale on EBay yesterday for around $199 which was a better buy than buying something you have to fix up. That E2 is not like the E and don't get it.
  12. I thought so too when I got it. I wanted a real example to follow thinking maybe of building a set and decided it was pretty complicated. Then I started getting those KPT-456's and lost all interest in doing so. Still it is something to work from for someone and I really don't like chopping things up. I have threatened to do so with these before and have not yet found the resolve to go it. It is a factory build plywood bin. Hatrack if I do end up chopping it up it will be $400 for the parts as they are plus shipping. Or someone can get this for what I paid delivered to Hope or pickup at my shop. The more time I spend on this the more I will want and finding boxes and packing these up requires me to drive to town and hunt boxes down and go from there. Hours more of my time and I have given these enough already. Someone wants the box-o-parts delivered to Hope they come in a nice wood container.
  13. That's pretty good. What are you cutting those parts on?😁
  14. These are tentatively sold but if not you are 2nd in line Schu.
  15. I have a set of KP-250 II recapped and with my large MAHL tweeters in them along with the KP115's. These are nice condition and can go to Hope. $800.00 Pictures later if anyone is interested.
  16. DBX is $190 and Furman shown has lights but the one I am selling does not The Furman is $90.00 Both os these can go to Hope and I would also consider mailing them shipping extra of course.
  17. This set will be at Hope for $90.00. Or you can get them and pay shipping which would be $13.50 Priority mail.
  18. OK I have kicked this thing around and never could quite decide to destroy it so last chance here before cut up for parts. One tweeter only and it does not work. Two horns two K-55 clone type drivers, two woofers two crossovers some L_Pads and one cabinet delivered to hope $300. Please do not ask me to bring these unless you are really serious about getting them.
  19. K-77 tweeters are round and square and run $100 a pair I will have an ohm meter and sweep generator with me so you can check them out. Maybe four sets or so. They will be in Hope and then for more $ on EBay.
  20. HIE HSM My tweeters in there and also recapped with Sonicaps. $600 and yes that is the price.
  21. Would you be willing to box it all up and ship to 38472? What would be the cost for that if you are willing?
  22. Bought this refurb from Crutchfield and used it for a short time to try out Audessy which I had heard so much about. I did not like it and here it sits. Time to go and I have the microphone and original box and packing stuff. $400 and I can bring it to Hope if that helps. Otherwise get me your zip and I will get a price to insure and ship. While I am at it an SW10 sub for $90.00 pickup or Hope delivery. I am also going to list a set of fiberglass/aluminum trimmed HIE HSM recapped and with my large tweeter in them. $600.00 and they will also be in Hope. For grins and giggles I have a KP682 sub in good shape I can take there too for $250.00. I also have various K-77 tweeters. Again I can bring these to Hope and they are $100 a pair. If any of these are of interest I will post pictures.
  23. These look a bit like a set that was floating around over there on a big wood base. If it is they were painted black and then had the paint removed. That paint will be there in the wood grain and you need to ask before hand to see the base and a close up of the wood. Or at least ask if these are the ones that were painted and stripped. When I talked to him, assuming these are the same ones, he told me I had to get over there ASAP since he was leaving for a job by the end of the week and was raising money for it. That was about a month ago.

    It is not Klipsch that discourages this but rather it is the number of people who will be there. I have been advised against bringing them and that is what will happen. However anyone who happens to be in the area is welcome to stop in just contact me ahead of time. Give me a call and I will turn the volume up so you won't have to rely on your phone GPS. We have very spotty coverage out here.
