  1. I know I've been absent for a while, but when did they become unobtainium?
  2. Any thoughts on doing this with 5.1 audio? I'd like to play some 5.1 music from DVD. I have the amplifiers, but need to drive them with analog audio. How can I do this? Does someone make a 5.1 extractor with decent noise floor? I'm planning on putting my Klipschorns in the living room as front channel, La Scalas as the rear channel, a Heresy as center, and a THTLP as the sub. Thanks for the help.
  3. Lol yes but I didn’t have to, there was a yellow post-it on the wrapper with the number right on it.
  4. #21 checking in. Book is fantastic, just beautiful. Thanks to all who made it happen.
  5. https://www.ebay.com/itm/255273044888 They look nice. A55G's, walnut tweeter horns, Crites crossovers. No affiliation.
  6. Wow. Bid right now is around $900 with 15 hours left (or more?). Seriously great deal for someone, even at double that. No room, no time, no money. That about sums me up.
  7. Early on, they used narrow-gauge 8-tracks.
  8. Ah, the very rare "bass on top" versions. lol. Seriously, great price.
  9. Sounds really familiar. Check out what I did. I chopped the tops off like you are thinking of doing, and made rugged splits on wheels. New handles, SpeakOns, all trimmed out. K33, A55, K77, Klipsch crossovers. 401 horns. They sound fantastic. BTW, I'm not sure how that photo below got affixed to the topic, those in the photo belong to @MookieStl I think. You gotta walk through the thread to see how they turned out.

    Death Clock

    I’m big-boned too, but only in my head. That thing says I have 20 more years. Hmmm. Mookie, can I have all your stuff?
  11. Yep. Better photo (maybe) from original thread: https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/175660-la-scala-split-project/&do=findComment&comment=2315670
  12. Not a very good photo but if you zoom in you can see the U. I will try to post a better one. It fits perfectly over the edge of the plywood.
  13. I put aluminum U-channel on the front edges of my splits. Works well and is very stiff.
  14. Same here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Unless I'm mistaken, putting them at the midpoint raises the resonant frequency by two. I think you might be better off by offsetting them by a tiny amount (1/8", 1/4"?) from center. Then you present two different resonant frequencies, one higher than fundamental / 2 and one lower than fundamental / 2. Am I right on this? The amount you'd have to move them off-center would mean that you couldn't visibly tell they weren't centered.
  16. Not going one way or the other on this, but here are some facts to consider... Two different retailers show the Klipschorn AK6 at $8249 each. I have a pricing sheet from 1 October 1967, which shows a K-B-WO Klipschorn at $804 each. Using the inflation calculator at https://www.bls.gov/data/inflation_calculator.htm, $804 in Oct 1967 is worth $6513 in July, 2021. $8249-$6513 = $1736. The AK6 contains the new tweeter, the new cable management system, and enclosed backs which the 1967 model did not have. I don't know how much to assign to each of those new features, but lumber prices have gone up too, as well as fuel. As far as them being priced out of reach, I felt this 35 years ago when I was in my 20's. No way could I afford a new pair any time between 1986 and now. I settled for used.
  17. I would love to have a set of Belles. Too far away and no where to put them. GLWTS.
  18. Not on facebook. can you post a photo and location?
