  1. Based on serial number, when were these made? Pic attached.
  2. I have a pair of 85 LaScalas that I'm bringing to sell. It has the original crossover. Since the crossover is easy access without opening the cabinet this would be a good one for the re-cap demo / training. What would I need to buy? I know Crites sells a kit but is that the best route vs finding caps that are the correct value from elsewhere? What value caps would I need to buy and what quantity? Patrick
  3. Yes I am going to the Pilgrimage. I have several speakers to sell there and I wanted to know if I needed to re-cap before selling if it would add value. Or alternately if NOT recapping would adversely affect the value. I have a set of Cornwalls and LaScalas of my own that have original crossovers. Based on what has been said it seems like those need new caps regardless. Thanks for the advice and info. The recap training session sounds like a great idea. Patrick
  4. I have several pairs of older Klipsch speakers as well as other brands. Given the age of some, I would suspect that new caps are in order. But how can you tell if they need to be replaced? I listen to each set and they sound great. Without having a new pair of a given speaker to A/B compare, I can't tell if what I'm hearing is how they are supposed to sound or if something is wrong. Being in my mid-40s and working in pro sound for so many years have not been kind to my hearing in the upper frequencies. I've EQ'd enough rooms and run test tones to know that my hearing tops out around 12k or 13k. What exactly is the sound to listen for if caps are bad? Thanks, Patrick
  5. A pickup at Goodwill that isn't working......could be a million things that might have happened. If you could spend $100 or less on repairs I'd do it. Anything more and I don't think it would be worth it given that you don't know the history and something else might be going out on it soon. These are good amps, but like anything - if they have been abused I wouldn't want to take the risk.
  6. Shipping would be tough. These are heavy and would be hard to pack. I'm going to bring them out to Hope to the Pilgrimage if you're going to be there. Patrick
  7. No - I think it's just bad lighting.
  8. PA subs are more for high output and to get decent response on the low end you would need a DSP with some EQ to boost the low end. I have some JBL cinema subs with dual 15s and the specs are similar. But they handle a massive amount of power. I have the low end boosted and smoothed out from 30hz - 50hz by boosting at 30-35 and cutting from 50-80. It doesn't handle 1600 watts now but I'm only pushing it with 600w and it sounds pretty good.
  9. I noticed a couple of people mentioned something about less than good condition of these speakers. I want to know what you're seeing that makes then less than top condition. I want to get the most that I can so I'll do whatever I need to make sure they are in top shape. I saw something on the front edge of the right speaker that looked like a little white spot on the corner. I'm not sure what it was but it wiped off with the wet rag easily. I'm probably should have wiped them down before I took the pictures but I literally just unplugged them and took the pictures as they were. I got the other badge yesterday and I put it on. That was the only blemish with the speakers. The drivers are literally perfect. What would I need to do to make these a very good or excellent condition seeing as how I'm not sure what's wrong with him now that seems to be a detraction? Thanks, Patrick
  10. Gone. What was it? If you see anything in the Dallas area send me a PM.
  11. Why would someone drive a Ferrari when they had a Honda before? Nothing wrong with a Honda but the Ferrari is so much more fun. Basically because the Cornwalls blow the doors off the Quartets. They are bigger and better in every phase of the sound.
  12. Yes. I love them. Made by Snap AV. Very underrated. Good value for the price. I sell Snap so if you're interested I buying new let me know.
  13. Keep sanding until all you can see is the "white". It is real wood....a veneer so it's fairly thin so you can sand through it if you're not careful.
  14. Where can I get the 4.5" drivers that the RF10 uses? I found a pair that I can get at a really good price but 2 of the drivers in one cabinet are shot. They can't be reconed because the magnets actually broke loose. I want to find out how much the replacement drivers cost before I decide if I want to buy them.
  15. Thanks - I could strip them and re-finish but I don't think that would add significantly to the value. I have ordered another badge to replace the one that is missing. The components are fine and they sound good as new.
  16. I have searched this forum, eBay, Facebook, Craigslist to get an idea of what Quartets should sell for and I can't find a good reference. They sound great, no problems with them at all. But I ran across an incredible deal on Cornwalls so I have to say bye-bye to the Quartets. What is a good price range to ask for these?
  17. I have several AV receivers that I'm bringing to sell at the Pilgrimage. I need to clean them up, find a few knobs, make sure they are shined and polished, etc, but I wanted to post a list now so anyone interested could start thinking about it. Pics below the list.

The top of the line was the 16.5. The low end was the 2.5. Despite being an economy model it was actually a pretty good little receiver. It produces 35 watts per channel and has appealing looks. Concept implemented an interesting design with their push button controls. There is a built in LED in each push button. The LED's make it easier to see which functions are active in low light or darkness. Designed by Richard Shramm of Parasound fame.

  18. Yes - that's correct. Let me know if you're able to come by and hear them.
  19. Let me know if you're interested in the ones I have.
  20. Isn't there a such thing as patents and copyrights? I'm surprised the Klipsch legal team hasn't jumped on this.
  21. To ask why he was getting rid of them. I have LaScalas I could trade if he was looking to downsize or he moved into a new place that wouldn't allow corner placement. Patrick
  22. Did you get the ones that were listed on Craigslist in Dallas? I had contacted the guy about them but didn't have $2k cash to pull the trigger.
