  1. Good evening all. I have a small KSW 100 sub. Bought it back in 2013 and have used it ever since. I have noticed lately that once the source is turned off it doesn't seem to kick back in when next turned on. For years I kept it on auto. The odd thing is that if I unplug and replug, it goes back into activity. I thought it might be the power bar I had it connected to - I changed it but this same pattern exists. Do the switches go after time? Once I "reboot" it things are fine. Weird...or maybe not. Anyone ever run into this sort of thing?
  2. The Forte IV is an evolution that corrected all the former weaknesses. The new Heresy IV is in the same boat.
  3. Small bookcases up flat against the walls behind the speakers could help.

    I hope you get your 50 years! Love you crazy Americans and hope to spend my winters on the gulf coast of Florida ( family tradition). Going to be 59 in two weeks, just shy of the BIG one. The men in my family are not known for our longevity so I enjoy every minute. If I make 78 I will tie the record set by my father a few years back.

    I hear you , although being a Canadian my metaphor is the last ten minutes of the third period hoping for overtime.
  6. Love it! We used to call it stereo TV. I know several people who are moving back to a straight up two channel system for music/TV movies and ditching the 5,7, 11, 224.12 systems. I do like having a centre but could live without it. What I would consider the perfect solution would be the rise of three channel "stereo" amps.
  7. I don't like the sounds of this at all. I'll stick with streaming Jazz Fm Toronto live and the Radio Tunes channels.
  8. Very interesting design but even larger than than I have now.
  9. This could be the ticket.
  10. Power/surge bars. We still get a lot of sudden power outs which is hard on everything. This winter has been better than most years though.
  11. It looks like a better sub than I have, although approximately the same size. In the end I may be SOL when it comes to a sub that takes less floor space. Chances are this will be the one should/when my current one buys the farm. We live on the 10th floor of a condo tower so earth shattering, wall shaking bass is not what I'm after. Just a little controlled bottom end for TV and the ever diminishing number of movies we watch. I'll be glad when the comic book movie fad is over.
  12. Which is the smallest sub Klipsch makes? I have an old KSW-10 that I enjoy but it seems to be getting a little erratic when on auto (fine when just turned on). We have terrible power here and are prone to frequent brown outs, failures and surges - chances are likely this may be the cause. If this is sign of end times I'd like to replace it with an even smaller footprint. I see KEF has announced a new sub which is quite small, however I would like to stick with a Klipsch product.
  13. LaScalas with a piano black finish would be spectacular and very distinctive.

    The man was an unofficial champion and ambassador of the brand and its legendary designs. I'm sure there may be some corporate types who thought he was undermining them, but this was not the case. His passion led him to to develop a Klipsch restoration cottage industry for loyal lovers of the brand. He took it so far as to develop the Cornscala - a project that many had thought or mused about over the years. What if we could combine...He actually did it and answered the question. His name will be remembered for years to come and will always be tied to Klipsch by those who knew either his work, his motivations, his company and the man himself.
  15. From my FB a few moments ago.
