  1. DIY driver board? Are is it commercially available?
  2. Not sure if the red rocker Sammy Hagar still has the female Native American bassist while on the subject. Bass players shouldn’t use picks though. Also Joann Shaw Taylor can sling a six string guitar as well. Just wish her sound engineer could cut back on the db levels somewhere in the mix. Always a bit too “hot” resulting in audible distortion.
  3. Hung on to those!
  4. Rather than spend more $$ me thinks will go the horizontal route for the rears. Problem solved. Thanks for the input @billybob Jimmy
  5. @billybob what if I horizontal wall shelved the 3.2’s ? Also already have the heavy duty brackets and 16” shelving wood. Could do the Heresy’s up higher as well. When I built the home I put speaker drop wall plates in.
  6. I think there is a pair of 1.2 on Marketplace in Houston. Not the price gouging “Cypress” one.
  7. @billybob are they the smallest kg? And the Heresy’s
  8. The rear space I have to work with.
  9. From other thread reads while I haven’t spent a lot of time on, my question. Seems a topic talked about quite a bit. Try to use matching series in a HT system. Myself, have never been into HT much. Just about anything would suit me fine in that aspect. Mainly I’m a 2 channel Klipsch hoarder. Along with being a tube fanatic. However ….. My last two (same day, different sellers) acquisitions were kg3.2 pair, kg2.2U single, SW-8 and Velodyne CT80. Second seller, picked up the KLFC7 black. I don’t think I will comment on the center other than the fact I didn’t look it over closely during the transaction. Rain and “ Klipsch talk” had me scurrying about, plus the second planned buy was still a good driving distance. The KLFC7 was picked up first. I will only mention “Cypress Tx.” as a hint. I will upload a photo of the simple repair I made to correct the screw-up or rather lack of. Also just recently picked up a pair of sequential #’d Heresy in fairly nice condition. Which leads me to this post. I plan on using my trusty old Denon AVR-889, KLFC7 center, Heresy for front surrounds, kg3.2 rear surrounds and the Velodyne + SW-8 subs if room permits. I’ve taken measurements and think I can squeeze both in the cabinet. My major concerns are, the Heresy’s will have to be placed on top of the Belles and the kg3.2 are too large for wall mounts, as I have now. Thinking if I had a smaller pair kg’s, would fit the bill. Even if I installed wall brackets and shelves the 3.2’s are still too large. So now I suppose I’ll be on the hunt for kg1, smaller footprint as I’d rather use the existing mounts. Any other options? All Klipsch please. And I always try to pick up used as I’m a tight assed sob. Lastly, the clutter on the left still has to be cleared!!
  10. Now this I’d like to sit in one of those chairs!
  11. In and all around way the Belle’s just have more of “it” with an MC30 on each. Your CF3’s being extreme outward are in the mix providing some mids, mid bass and a certain different bass kick, faster attack, but maybe not quite as deep fills as the K33’s. MC 75’s drive the CF3’s. This is my “turn it up to concert levels” system. When I pop in a live concert DVD. I’ve had visitors tell me ‘it’s like you are actually there’. I also love the Thorens through the C20 phono stage as well. I have my best cartridge, Pickering XZL-7500 with a Redboy (Nate) Altec/Peerless SUT stepping up the signal. One other thing to consider, the Belle’s aren’t so directional, such wide dispersion, dig deep. I should toe in the right CF just a tad more. Hope this helps @avguytx
  12. MC 30’s and 75’s, thanks fellas. CF3’s in the mix also.
  13. The very reason I am a firm believer in tube stand alone amps. Mono blocks or 2 channel power amps. Then the all important preamplifier with tone controls. Even use the loudness contour on my McIntosh C20 and couple of Heathkit SP-2. My 1961 CW pair absolutely knock the socks off with a Dynaco ST-70 and any tube preamp I have. H H Scott 130, Heathkit SP-2 (2) PAS 2 un-modded. The Aric Audio unlimited has less bass, no tone controls.
  14. No words, just thought I’d post this pic.
  15. Wasn’t via “Garage Sale” per this forum. But instead was contacted by a member that has attended many Pilgrimage. And most likely a member of this Forum. Scammed for $300.00. My own fault for sending funds via PayPal F&F. This person knew I wanted the CF4 horn drivers won as a Pilgrimage door prize a few years back. Contacted me on Messenger. Money sent then plainly ignored. I won’t mention names unless the great people I’ve met in Hope and GP need this information. Oh well, screw it. Name is shown in the photos.
  16. I’ve certainly seen cleaner chassis. You don’t have a fortune invested at your purchase price. Certainly do have this completely rebuilt and at least IBAM for individual output tube bias. Just my 10-c-
  17. The resistance measures in the high 5 ohm range, reason I raised the question. If anyone knows what impedance specs were during the time period of their manufacture. I’ve read CW came in 4 and 8 ohm. In the back of my mind I believe I’ve read that.
  18. In the kitchen, dining room for initial listening. Holy crap. Also having,Klipschhorns Belles, CF4’S, CF3’s, KLF30’s. (the kg5.5’s found a new owner yesterday). It’s getting difficult to judge the “TOP DAWG” now. May just be the room dimensions. And the way they disperse into the longer area.
  19. Added more Heritage to the collection. According to the seller @Arno 1961 Cornwalls. Brought my Fluke 77 with me for resistance measurements. Total impedance at speaker terminals measured a little over 5 ohms with a small deviation from one speaker to the other. i was able to narrow it down to the K77 in one enclosure. One ohm’d around 13 while the other closer to 8. But no sign of distortion or other side effects. They sound terrific in fact. At one point, I was told the cabinets painted blue. And that was over white. The backs are still blue. While that doesn’t bother me, what does is the fact, the factory tags have been painted over. The only solution to trying to remove paint to make them legible again without destroying them altogether would be trying to carefully scrape lightly with a razor blade. If anyone has better suggestions, I’m all ears. Also would anybody know if 4 or 8 ohm during this time period? I will add some photos, reduced size with my iPhone later.
  20. Can’t get link copied and pasted....

  22. Thanks @henry4841MC 30’s pushing CF4’S back wall, MC 75’s on the Belles.
  23. Personally I believe a ST-70 is worth putting a good notched plate GZ-34 in. Sometimes can pick up a decent used Hammond labeled. Of course does not have to be notched plate. I have picked up some Valvo NOS a bit cheaper then Mullard, Amperex, etc.
