  1. I ran across these this past weekend. The owner said they were taken from a shut down movie theater. They need to be cleaned up, some touch up paint, a port on the 18" driver cabinet re-attached. There are 3 low frequency cabinets. Two have dual 15's and one has a single 18". The theater only had ONE of the mid/high compression drivers and horns. I asked about the other two and they had sold them. If someone where to get this and find two more matching mid/high horns it would make for a very nice front stage in a theater. Models are: JBL 2445J compression driver with horn and mounting bracket JBL 4638TH bass cabinet JBL 4645B bass cabinet TOTAL AUDIO TA-215-W8 bass cabinet I tested all of the drivers individually and they work. The appearance is the only thing that needs some work. I'm going to work on these and I plan to bring them out to the pilgrimage. At this point I'm going to have to rent a cargo trailer to bring everything out. If anyone has an interest in these send me a message.
  2. Here are more pics of the LaScala that I have for sale at $1400.
  3. I offered $180 and they accepted. I'm going to go by either today or tomorrow to pick them up. I'll post pics when I get them to clarify about the finish. Patrick
  4. Those are the ones I'm looking at. Since I'm in DFW I can drive over and pick them up with having to pay for shipping. Good deal or not?
  5. If you still have these, let me know. I'm talking to a guy who is parting out a pair of Heresys because the tweeters are blown. I offered him a fixed price for everything he has including the blown tweeters so I might be able to use these if he accepts my offer. Patrick
  6. Anyone have thoughts on this? I'm looking to buy but want to make sure it's a worthwhile price.
  7. I'm selling a pair in DFW for only $1,400
  8. I can tell you that the amp has an MSRP of $999 but I can discount it heavily. I can't post in a public forum what I can sell it for because that's a violation of my dealer agreement but I could send you a quote or private message you if you are interested.
  9. This is a great thread and I'll have to go back and read it in more detail. There is so much to absorb. I know this is already well under way, but I wanted to mention a sub amp that I sell and have used many times. IMO it's the best "bang for the buck" in this range. https://www.snapav.com/shop/en/snapav/amplifiers-speaker/episode-reg%3B-digital-subwoofer-amplifier---500w-with-front-panel-display-ea-amp-sub-1d-500r I also wanted to ask about comparing the Eminence LAB15 driver to the Dayton Umax that the OP is using. I have been considering building box with the LAB15, but the Dayton Umax looks impressive.
  10. Talk to me in more detail about what you need. I'm in near Hope, but DFW isn't far and I'm sure there are a fair share of Klipsch fans in the DFW area. Maybe start a "fan club" with some kind of perks where the revenue could go toward the museum? Just one idea of many I would like to discuss in more detail.
  11. What is the price range for buying a pair of KG3s? What I mean is ...... less than $xxx: run, don't walk. buy them right away between $yyy and $zzz: price is about right depending on condition over $vvv: keep away...too expensive. Thanks for the input.
  12. Since it's one of the premiere BluRay players available - why are you selling it?
  13. Pioneer CS R70 speakers - $300 Vintage Pioneer speakers made back when Pioneer made respectable speakers. These are a 3 way horn loaded design with 12" woofer, midrange and high frequency horns. The sound is similar to an early 70s Klipsch Heresy but with a significantly stronger low end. These have a classic sound that opens up with a bright high end and strong vocal presence in the midrange. The cabinets are heavy and very solid. Specs (translated from original Japanese manual) Scheme: 3 ways, 3 speaker bass-reflex scheme Using unit: For low-pass: 30cm cone type For mid-high ranges: Horn type For high super regions: Horn type Impedance: 8ohm Play frequency band: 35Hz - 20000Hz Output sound pressure level: 91dB/W The maximum input: 75W Cross over frequency: 700Hz, 14000Hz Dimensions: Width 380x height 660x depth of 346mm Weight: 23kg Sorry for the quality of the pictures. I had to use a higher jpeg compression than I like because of the limit on uploading 2m of pictures per post.
  14. Sterling SE 300 Cathedral speakers - $225 Great sounding vintage speakers. These are very rare and I've only found a few Sterling speakers for sale in the entire US, none of this model. The wood is solid, heavy and well built. Uses a 2 way design with a cone tweeter that gives a smooth, well balanced sound. The sound reminds me of the vintage Advent of the early 70s. The low end is solid and punchy. All drivers are original.
  15. '85 LaScala with K-55-M midrange and AL crossover. Asking $1400 on ad sites, but I'll cut a deal to members. Not sure if I'll have room in my Nissan Rogue to bring both of these to the pilgrimage.
  16. Polk SDA II speakers $375 Matched pair of high end Polk speakers. Truly amazing sound. The SDA series was Polk’s first attempt at expanding the state of the art in loudspeakers. The SDA-2 was just below the top of the line SDA-1, which added an extra mid-woofer, a larger cabinet and a few hundred dollars to the price, along with slightly more bass extension. The SDA-2 is no slouch and many over they years felt it superior to its big brother. SDA stands for Stereo Dimensional Array, and its goal is much the same as what Bob Carver was after with his Sonic Holography: to cancel the aural crosstalk which smears the imaging clues and confuses the ear. In the Polk version, an umbilical cord connects the left and right speakers and feeds the left channel signal to the right speaker’s SDA array and vice versa. This has the effect of canceling the crosstalk, making the left ear hear the left speaker only and the right ear the right speaker only (in theory). In practice, it is far more effective than one might think. The SDA-2 speakers are mirror-imaged pairs, with the driver compliment as follows: two 1″ soft dome tweeters horizontally arrayed near the top of the front baffle; below the tweeters are a pair of mid-woofers, also horizontally arrayed. On each speaker the inner tweeter and mid-woofer are the SDA drivers; the outer pair work conventionally. Below the two horizontal arrays is another mid-woofer in line with the outer woofer above it, and below that is a 12″ diameter passive radiator, which takes the place of a conventional port. A black cloth grill covers all of the drivers. On the back panel, there is a tweeter-protection fuse above the single set of 5-way binding posts. Below the fuse is a socket for the umbilical cord connecting each speaker. Model: SDA 2 Tweeter: 2 x SL1000 Stereo Driver: 1 x MW6600x Bass Driver: 1 x MW6600x SDA Driver: 1 x MW6600x Bass Radiator: SW120 Crossover: Dual Board SDA I.C.: blade/Blade Dimensions: 12"D x 16"W x 39-1/2"H Shipping Weight: 80 lbs. per Cabinet Frequency Response: 16-26,000 Hz. (no tolerance given) Sensitivity: 92 dB / w / m Nominal Impedance: 4 ohms Suggested Amplification: 10-500 watts continuous;common ground amplifiers only
  17. Posting some pics now of a few of these along with a better description. Cerwin Vega Hed U321 Speakers - $300 These Cerwin Vegas are a hard to find HED design with extremely high output and crisp, clear sound. I bought these from an estate sale and did significant restoration. The tweeters are brand new and the exact same model as the original tweeter since they were still available to purchase new. The classic red foam Cerwin Vega woofers are no longer available for purchase new. I did extensive research on various drivers and used the Thiele-Small parameters to find the woofer to give optimum performance from this enclosure. The woofer I selected gives solid performance down to 30 Hertz and in my opinion sounds better than the original Cerwin Vega woofers. They are polypropylene with a foam surround which is the same style the original Cerwin Vegas used.SHOW LESS
  18. I have quite a few speakers that I am trying to sell. I will bring as many as needed to the pilgrimage if anyone is interested. For now these include: '85 LaScala Polk SRS II Cerwin Vega HED U321 Pioneer CS R70 Sterling SE 300 Cathedral AudioSource LS TWO Infinity SM112 Factor Electronics 70v outdoor model Frazier cabinet/bookshelf speaker B52 club/DJ speakers with 15" woofer Black non branded 8" 3 way that sound surprisingly good If interested message me. Here is a shot of all the speakers staged and ready to listen to in my garage. I have an 8-way speaker selector that allows me to pick a single speaker at a time to quickly switch between different pairs of speakers. The Keurig is for sale too by the way!
  19. I just sold a pair of these about a month ago for $600. Wish I lived closer.
  20. Yes - I've signed up. I need to talk to you about the details at some point.
  21. I have a pair of LaScalas that I need to sell. I WISH I could keep them, but I'd have to build another wing to my house to have room for them. It would be perfectly fine to me if I had huge LaScalas in the main living room, but my wife has mentioned words like "aesthetics", "tasteful", "matching room decor" that are completely foreign to me when it comes to getting the best sound in each room of the house. She told me that I have free reign in the media room but the other rooms of the house she has to approve. I won the battle in getting to keep my Chorus in the bedroom, but she actually prefers the tower Klipsch F1s in the living room because they LOOK better. I have an industrial LaScala (black) for my center channel and I just picked up a pair of industrial LaScalas that I can use for my L/R so they match better. Alas that means that my other LaScalas need to find another home. I bought these from the original owner less than a year ago. I barely had a chance to use them so I hope they find a good home. I'm asking $1400 and have them listed in a couple of places but if anyone here on the forum is interested I'll consider dropping that price a bit. I know these pics aren't the best but I wanted to get something up here to start the conversation. I'll post more later that show all the side plus the serial numbers.
  22. Alex, Looks like you did a great job on these. I look forward to talking to you more about these. Thanks, Patrick
