  1. Seller has another ad for one Belle top grill. https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/ele/d/elmhurst-klipsch-belle-upper-speaker/7264268060.html
  2. I like the way you think. I would be devastated to loose my LCR WO Chorus II's. Glad you found a workaround here.
  3. $150. Chicago. From reading the ad I think these may be NOS. Double check the part#. https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/ele/d/elmhurst-klipsch-cornwall-speaker/7264197261.html Seller has another ad for one Belle top grill. https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/ele/d/elmhurst-klipsch-belle-upper-speaker/7264268060.html
  4. Some of the Record Heads in this forum may also be movie buffs. New release. January 17, 2020 John Carpenter Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 With Exclusive Slipmat https://www.shoutfactory.com/product/john-carpenter-anthology-with-exclusive-slipmat?product_id=7350&utm_source=rejoiner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=John+Carpenter+Birthday+Sale+1%2F12%2F21&utm_content=JOHN+CARPENTER+BIRTHDAY+SALE+-+1%2F11%2F21&rjnrid=dDoNrrA Disk art is ok, but not a fan of the cover art.
  5. All gone! Now $599.00 Was $1,100.00 Save $501.00 (46%) https://www.musicdirect.com/integrated-amp/marantz-hd-amp1-integrated-amp-dac
  6. I love OPPO media players!
  7. Deang is done. Call JEM and report back. Then if they won't do the work, call the place I suggested earlier because they are legit, but not factory accurate "voltage tranfer curve", but can definitely build a high quality board. If you read the links I post you will understand why so few are involved in this kind of work. Applied math yes, applied income...well a few actually figured that part out pretty well.
  8. For continuity and those who want more answers 202 https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.ti.com/lit/pdf/snoa224&ved=2ahUKEwjMoKr3_IzuAhUBAZ0JHQ9eAKQQFjAVegQIDxAB&usg=AOvVaw1K2sJPOSLZkoxVaff7o3dV
  9. Great! Now that you understand, read this and ask again. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roll-off
  10. Practical capacitors and inductors as used in electric circuits are not ideal components with only capacitance or inductance. However, they can be treated, to a very good degree of approximation, as being ideal capacitors and inductors in series with a resistance; this resistance is defined as the equivalent series resistance (ESR). If not otherwise specified, the ESR is always an AC resistance, which means it is measured at specified frequencies, 100 kHz for switched-mode power supply components, 120 Hz for linear power-supply components, and at its self-resonant frequency for general-application components. Additionally, audio components may report a "Q factor", incorporating ESR among other things, at 1000 Hz. Ask again once you understand all of the above including the links provided.
  11. I am in for one first pressing, first edition, with dust jacket please. Can we get book signings done? The antiquarian book collector in me is asking a sincere question here.
  12. Ignore. I was unaware until now. See below.
  13. If this is in fact true, then I have no problem saying it is a very poor design choice intended for one single purpose only. What you can do then from this point forward is entirely based on your budget and willingness to move away from the original network. Anyone with the technical capability of measuring and designing a new network for the purpose of solving specific issues with a poorly designed crossover would find it very time consuming and therefore very expensive. There are countless speaker models out there in the world to choose from. A relatively low budget model will never get the attention required to address these kind of things. I own a couple of pairs of speakers, which are of a very highly regarded design, and also happen to have an extremely complex crossover, and parts count alone prevents anyone other than a few motivated owners with high level of talent and knowledge from doing any refinement except on their very own pairs. I am just saying you will likely not locate a tech, service center, or even a DIY'er who will want to do this work at a budget that will commensurate with the value of your speakers. Your choices are very limited. Compromises will need to be made. Or buy new speakers.
  14. MADISOUND https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/ Simple. Send them a crossover schematic and they will build a board for you. Printed circuit using high quality parts. You can choose the level of quality. If you want to tweak a circuit design, just send them a valid schematic with the changes and that is what you will get. They are local for me. I have talked with the owners in person multiple times over the years. They build anything you send them. Not brand specific. They design and sell their own models also. Send them this https://community.klipsch.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=121396 or this https://community.klipsch.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=121395 They will look something like this (for demonstration purposes only)
