  1. Here is the old Klipsch spec sheet on MCM-1900's. MCM1900good (1).pdf
  2. My Super MWM's are 16' center to center and most choose to listen at around 12' to 14' away. Amazing fidelity and presence you can never have with direct radiator speakers. Of course they sound good out in an open field too from 90' or more away. Big horns done right just flat out beat everything else.
  3. Yeah the ads for these are everywhere. I think the upcoming holidays and people worried about 30+ % inflation at the grocery store this year have really hurt the used pro Klipsch market. I have a similar set that is not the caliber of these up for some time and not a nibble.
  4. They are the Gen 3 402's and were installed new on this set. 4080 Xilica . 1132 which is the correct Klipsch driver for this set. Who cares about the passive if you have a Xilica with good settings already entered for this set. I can tell anyone this is a good set from first hand knowledge and normally these would have been long gone. Big sets are moving slow right now and that is the only reason they are still here. You snooze you lose and you wont see a set this good at this price again.
  5. I have seen MCM 1900's in fairly small rooms and within reason if you can get them through the door the bigger the better.
  6. That's right and a cheap easy fix. This is the way a set of 942/4's is set up in my shop right now.
  7. Hot glue is much quicker and I doubt the heat will hurt the cap.
  8. Those nylon clips and cable ties will dent your caps over time. I use silicone caulk to fasten all caps to my boards now and there will be zero damage or stress this way.
  9. Hmm, your tag says Hong Kong and no locale was given so I had to ask. There is an old Chessie caboose in Ethridge, a small town close to me on a siding. Ex Louisville and Nashville then ex CSX and now Patriot Rail. Passenger trains ran until the early 60's here and I ran across an older guy who used to ride from Columbia to Lawrenceburg TN on this line. I have followed the track in places and according to this old timer the ride was quite scenic. I can believe it and rolling countryside with numerous stream crossings and some steep grades it would be fun to ride this line. Freight only though for some time and almost abandoned. by CSX. When I moved here in the late 80's the road bed was in terrible shape and used to connect to Chattanooga through Pulaski. The Pulaski to Chattanooga line was pulled up but the rest was saved and today sees freight rolling along daily.
  10. The magic answer to this shipping or driving question is UShip. They have picked up and delivered 4 items I sold with no trouble. Cheaper then I could drive to do it and that is not counting wear and tear and time.
  11. Offered by a guy who cares about audio.
  12. OK what is a Chessie Caboose doing over there?
  13. I don't know how a lot of things are done. I was once working on an LSI and when I opened it up there were char marks at the top of the slot where the woofer mounts. A true rockin hot concert no doubt. My respect for SLV types only grew as I looked at the replacement woofer labeled Taiwan with no model number.
  14. I checked the woofer out and I think it may have problems. I am probably going to just throw it out and not take a chance on it.
  15. Sorry about that. My wife has had a rough couple of days and I just plain forgot. I will try to get them looked at this evening.
  16. Leave your "$12,500" price tag on there where they have to peek a little bit to find it so they can realize not only do you have good taste but you are modest too.
  17. Are you impugning Earcrometers? Are you saying they are not efficacious and golden?
  18. another predictable reaction. 😁See now I planed ahead knowing all this esoteric electronics voodoo ahead of time. While I do have wire mesh it is way down in that 8" thick 5000psi slab that mainly depends on the fiber mesh for crack resistance. My cleverly constructed steel building was designed to be an audio enhancing Faraday cage to reduce all harmful electronic interference. It's why my speakers sound so good with so few components.
  19. If Klipch will really sell you a K-33 for $129.00 I would not look into reconing. You would probably spend close to that on a recone and then how do you KNOW the recone dude has real correctly made recone stuff to duplicate the OEM K-33? I have 7 K-45's and 48's in the scrap bin right now because reconing in Nashville is a big PITA and I have no assurance these woofers would be restored to OEM specs other then an empty promise. I have one of these old woofers on the shelf. Have to see if it is working and if it is you can have it for the price of shipping. I will get back to you tonight.
  20. Now there is a mouthful of marketing babble speak! So picture yourself in the listening room in Hope where you will see zip cord on the floor. Good enough for Roy means good enough for me. Buy 12g by the spool and be happy don't worry. From Audiogon, and I mean way gone, today. I just love humor in the morning! "Had my interconnect cables custom made to be 10’3.47” long…mathematically this is the perfect length as all the distortion has plenty of room to disperse." Well that is true for one specific wire manufactured in a particular way. The math changes when you vary construction and gauge and strand thickness. Cable cooking and freezing can change the math when it alters the metallurgical structure.of the conductor. You can reverse the cable and the math will change. Wire has a best way for proper electron flow. Avoid laying speaker cables on a bare floor as wood will change the flow of electrons and render your mathematically precise calculated wire to then be incorrect. Ceramic tile will not unless you have tile with heavy iron content. Also avoid finer wool carpets as they are prone to static electricity buildup which can effect your outcome too.
  21. First thing you do is switch speaker leads and see if the problem follows the speaker or not. I have seen connections to the woofer fall off. Checking resistance with the woofer wires loose from the barrier strip will tell you that. Those old K-33's are quite durable and my first suspicions would be it is something else. Also loosen and tighten all the connections at the barrier strip.
