  1. I have suggested that they develop a process where someone can order speakers and there are many photos taken at various stages of the build, along with autographs so that the purchaser receives an album of the whole process. That would fetch a premium, I think, and do something that I don't know is done anywhere else. Also I have suggested that as a fundraiser, the Klipsch Museum sell photos of pages out of their logbooks for specified Heritage serial numbers. I would pay for a framable photo from the logbook for my SNs, and I think others would too. Sort of like a birth certificate.
  2. That's one of the coolest things I've seen in a while.

    ALK ES500T extreme-slope network design ready

    Great discussion about maximizing usage of resolution in the digital domain, I've really enjoyed this exchange. That's the place to do it for sure.

    DIY Amp Kits..??

    I agree wholeheartedly with this. You won't find it cheaper and you don't want to compromise the design with inadequate heat sinking.

    DIY Amp Kits..??

    Amp Camp is an event where Nelson Pass himself walks people through building a class A amplifier. At the end of the day, everyone has a working amp. This amp kit is this year’s design. The first batch sold out right away, and I expect this batch to do the same.

    New Klipschorn AK6 coming out?

    Thanks for posting that. His reference point is 1 meter in front of the grille and the tweeter signal arrives first at 3.7ms. Speed of sound at around 20 degrees C at 1 atmosphere is 3.43ms / m, so his 3.7ms is entirely believable, the tiny difference maybe accounted for by the K77 throat depth, so this is the "zero" I was talking about. Nobody listens at 1m with their ear in front of the grille, though, (and no idea on the vertical placement of the mic) so I'm not exactly sure how you'd measure the other paths and get the delays. The simplistic and probably wrong method would be to subtract 3.7 from the other two times. I could imagine that measuring the true woofer delay would probably be much harder to do than the mid and the tweeter, but I could be wrong. I'm wrong a lot. Someone else will have to weigh in on this, I'm over my head.

    La Scala Split Project

    Well. I met @MookieStl today for the first time, and I'm here to tell those that don't know... he's a straight up good dude. He's helping me out with my HF corner problem, and I can't tell y'all how happy I am about it. You folks may not realize how cool this Klipsch community is, but this is a really special place. We didn't know each other at all, and in fact, I only talked to him on the phone maybe 2 minutes before I met him in person. We did some listening with one of his LSIs on one channel and one of my splits on the other channel. Sounded great. The best part is we couldn't tell the difference between the two channels. We had 'em maybe 20 feet apart and toed in a bit and tried all listening distances and they sounded consistently good. We wound our way through some SRV, Head East, Aristocrats, some Steven Wilson, a bit of Diana Krall, Joss Stone, and Norah Jones, and even some Moxy and Zebra, all the while talking about drivers and crossovers and KHorns and Belles and La Scalas and Heresys and a few other things, and didn't even have beers or even chairs. I can't wait to update you all on the Splits project, but without Mookie's help on this roadblock, I may not have ever updated you again. code
