  1. May I gently take issue here, Claude? Start with the presupposition that I have the highest regard for you personally and your solid opinions. I don't have a dog in this fight so I consider myself neutral. I know the Crites company by its stellar reputation and I don't know the OP at all. What I read in Post 1 was the OP was NOT trying to tear down Crites. He did not mention the company by name and he seem surprised that after he posted a picture everyone knew who the builder was. As you said, all the posters here are knowledgeable and honest. We can have disagreements on various topics but the replies here were honest IMO. My take was that the OP had a legitimate concern over a technical issue based on what he read on Crites website. He posted a topic here looking for feedback. I give the OP as well as the Crites company the benefit of the doubt. Both were acting in good faith and as I read more and saw some of the responses from Crites it seemed to me, as others have suggested, that there was not a meeting of the minds. It further looks like both sides are trying to find a fair resolution that is mutually agreeable. That's what I would expect from a fair customer and a great company. I think the Klipsch forum members in this thread have offered great perspective and advice. I applaud the OP for having an open mind, I equally applaud Crites for offering some fair options. I don't see any ill intent on the part of either party. That's just the view of a neutral third party. Thanks in advance Claude for giving my comments a look. Whether or not we end up agreeing or disagreeing on the intent of the OP I feel sure we'll still be forum friends. -Dave
  2. According to Crites website the price for AA's is $530. https://critesspeakers.com/prices_-_new_crossovers.html
  3. I think the Epic Owners Group thread has details on that, including pictures. I think I used a 1x3, maybe a 1x4 board. I put little rubber pads on the ends, then glued and screwed the board to the support piece. Klipsch OEM had two braces and used a similar support piece. I just copied what Klipsch did. You can see the lighter colored boards, those are mine. I braced one of the Klipsch braces just because I had extra wood. The stock brace is plenty, it's just that I'm into overkill. What you don't see is I had the 1506 not only sitting on the shelf but on a small but dense rubber piece to kill any unwanted vibration. On the other picture you can see the fiberfil I put into the bottom of the box near the XO. It's at the top of the picture.
  4. No, plug and play. +++ Have you gone though the Epic Owners thread? There's some good info on CF-4 mods. I had some harshness in the HJ I wanted to get rid of. I damped the horn, removed some foam from the lower end and put about a pound of Fiberfil in the bottom near the ports.
  5. A pair of DH1506 ship nicely in a single USPS Medium Flat Rate box. @nmorris43I have the DH1506 in my CF-4's. Be sure to build a shelf for the 11 pound 1506. OEM KN-63 is 4 pounds. You can probably sell the K-63's to recoup part of the cost if not all. The K-63's are unobtanium and diaphragms are no longer available.
  6. I know the old Type AA La Scala from the 70's was 125 pounds. The new MDF model is 175 pounds.
  7. Umm, no. That price is called the sucker search. Unless they find a sucker then those will be sitting a long time. That is at least triple what they are going for today. And look at the rotted out base board. These are in Avg/poor condition assuming all the drivers work. Sellers list the Khorns in "like new" condition. Umm, no. Should I contact them and let them know I paid $900 for my 1979 Khorns in much better condition, a few years ago?
  8. I started jotting prices down due to my poor memory. Years ago we'd get into discussion on the Klipsch forums about what a used speaker was worth. I'd say the La Scala was $1200, somebody else would say $1000 all day long, others $1500, but which was it? Heck, I didn't know. I'd see where someone bought one but I couldn't remember all the prices so made up a spreadsheet and let it do all the math. It's part of the way I enjoy this activity. Klipsch Heritage used prices ver 2021-08.xlsx
  9. Maybe. I watch local ads etc. and haven't seen a decent set of H1s near Nashville for less than this in over a year. I defer to your superior knowledge of your local area. You know your stuff and keep up with local sales. All I've got is 49 confirmed sales of H1's in Good condition $387 and 46 confirmed sales of H1's in Avg/Poor condition $330 over a three year span to come up with the averages I quote. I don't know the Nashville market and in fact I'm not sure I have anything documented from Nashville. I fully acknowledge that may not mean anything when looking for speakers in a person's local area. My Heritage Prices spreadsheet is a good research tool and not the final word on used speaker prices. It's a good place to start especially if a Buyer (or even a Seller) hasn't been keeping up on prices.
  10. Agree. Ch2 in Good condition average 777. In Avg/Poor condition 682. Those are in Avg condition because the tops can be sanded and restored to new looking with some time and work.
  11. You are correct sir. The average for LS of that vintage is around 1200, the last confirmed sale I show was $1600.
  12. Heresy I's go for $400 all day long. These are owner re-finished going from Birch Raw to a dark walnut. I'd go $300 tops and only if I was really wanting a pair of H1's.

    Heresy IV

    I had one unconfirmed sale price at $1800. No other sales
  14. Did you pick them up? For my Heritage Prices spreadsheet, what price, if you don't mind?
  15. Great system. We all know about the RF-83 and RC-64 but you should also know those RS-62's are no joke! Incredible surrounds that will keep up nearly any system you pair them with.
  16. There are work arounds for banned words but that is equally against the rules here. For the sake of discussion you could say "beitches" spell or b*i*t*c..." but you are not supposed to be doing that. You get the idea. The best way to refer to that particular album is to link to it, explaining that it contains a banned word that is prohibited by forum rules. We would all understand that. There are very few instances where banned words are the title of an album, but the example you give is certainly of of them. I can't think of anybody I've seen post here who would faint if they saw the banned words as we are all adults. However many of those same members might object to posting those same words because we don't want to violate the forum rules and lose our privilege of posting here. Your common sense should tell you what words to avoid. Keep it clean as if your ten year-old child were reading it. If a forum member were to start a word with F and end it with uck they better be talking about a firetruck or they are likely to get banned.
  17. @MeloManiacThe Forum has always had a software filter which will ***** out a standard set of words and notify the admins. I don't use those words or I've learned to use other words the filter does like. Usually all it takes is a word to the wise and the person who makes the post takes it down himself. When I was new to the forum I made posting mistakes and others more experienced helped me with their guidance. It's easy to use the Edit feature to take out the offending words or pictures. There are no words that I type which are so important to the world that I can't delete of redact my own post. It's not personal. In terms of art, the middle picture you've posted showing a woman's private parts is certainly not acceptable on this forum. There is no filter which will remove it that I know of. We are left to self-police ourselves so the Admins don't have to inspect every post. They have enough other stuff to do so we respect that. The typical response of the poster is "thanks for the heads up, I'll take the picture down." Posters who don't get it eventually get the thread or post flagged and the Admins delete it and the offender can be banned. Banning a forum member is a very rare occurrence as most people "get it" but it does happen. I hope that helps clarify things. -Dave
  18. Read the first few posts in this thread. I summarized various articles on the CF-3/4 and there are links. In particular look at @AlexG posts.
  19. I thought my CF-4 v1 was nasal. They weren't accurate, the pitch was about 1/3 too high. I fixed mine and now they are very accurate. I'm off to the gym in a few minutes but when I get back in the early afternoon I'll give you some info which will fix that. If you don't want to wait I've already detailed that earlier in the thread. I just don't have time at the moment to find it, but it's there.
  20. I think the Epic Owners Group has some more detailed pictures. There were two OEM braces and I added one more to the sides in the middle which was the shelf, then a long one with a rubber biscuit top and bottom. The vertical brace had to be off-center because the CD takes up the middle space.
  21. They aren't plug and play. The K-63 uses a neo magnet and weighs 4 pounds. The DH1506 are 11 pounds each. They will crack that horn lens unless you build a shelf for them to sit on. All this is detailed in the thread referenced above "Epic Owners Group." Highly recommended reading. While I had the box apart I built a shelf for the 1506. I damped the horns with pure Silicon caulk, an 11oz tube per horn lens. Cost around $6 I braced the enclosure I added about 2 pounds of Fiberfil to the bottom where the ports are. I took out the two 1.5" foam sheets from the bottom only. When I added a 15" sub the CF-4's had a sound with more accuracy and more dynamics than my La Scalas, more than my Khorns. The little improvements added up into a big overall improvement.
  22. I bought it to swap into a center speaker which would timbre match my CF-4's. Having acquired an RC-64 III pretty much put an end to my need for a better center!
  23. That didn't show up on my Ebay search, I wonder why? Either way, $110 shipped is not a crazy price and that 1506 works great in the CF-4.
  24. I don't have to sell my DH1506 so it doesn't affect me one way or the other, but...if it's substantially more, just contact the Seller and cancel the sale. The Seller doesn't really care. I did see one 1506 for $400 with $95 shipping on Ebay. Is that the one? Edit: I saw the one for $85 and $15 shipping Sold today. If you got that one, it's a good deal. They usually go for about $125 each and you can put two into a $15 flat rate Medium USPS box.
  25. I've got your DH 1506. You'll get the Forum Member's discount. 🤜🤛 $75 plus shipping. $15.50 USPS Medium flat rate box. Make it $90 shipped.
