  1. What I Got Today!

    Quote: I am a believer in a lot of little improvements add up to a big improvement. In my profession an accumulation of tiny errors contribute to very costly and hard to correct problems later. Things such as an injury on the job can always be traced back to a track record of small minor rule violations and near misses.
  2. Klipsch Official Limited Edition T-Shirt

    Question to the new shirt owners. So no silkscreen on the back at all? Just a plain black back?
  3. A smaller portion of my collection for sale with prices

    Edited for price and inventory. Have another look.
  4. Here we have a pic of the internals of a Furman Elite 15 PF i, think DM without the light extentions and here we have the internals of the APC H15
  5. I am not currently interested in Whole Home, so I have only these 2 options today. Please chime in at will though. I will be purchasing either shortly for my main system (listed below) The Furman is the better brand, higher cost, available at a savings of $173.29 over retail. Has longer durability without being MOV self sacrificial. 4 high current outlets. 15amp in/out The APC is the more publicly know unit, lower cost, but still at a retail price. Good joule rating, but lower overall durability. Has automatic voltage correction in 3 settings. 2 high current outlets. 12amp in/out. Possibly 3 amps are reserved for A.V.R. reserve? http://www.furmanpower.com/product/conditioner-power-ht-15a-dual-meter-ELITE-15 DM I http://www.apc.com/shop/us/en/products/APC-AV-Black-1-5kVA-H-Type-Power-Conditioner-120V/P-H15BLK ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Main system : Panasonic TC-P60ST60 plasma; Denon AVR-X6200W; Outlaw 5000; Klipsch RSW-10 sub; modified Klipsch Chorus II Fronts; modified Klipsch Forte II center; modified Klipsch Chorus II surrounds; modified Klipsch Academy rear heights; JBL L20T3 front heights; Mogami 10ga speaker cables, Mogami interconnects; custom gaming pc Secondary system LG 47" LCD; Onkyo tx-nr818; JBL 240Ti Fronts; JBL L40T3 Center; JBL L100T3 Surrounds; Mogami cables; custom htpc/server.
  6. Side walls would be much better. Speakers behind you couch near in close proximity to your ears would overwhelm the rest of the sound in the room
  7. So in your case you would place the speakers in the location closest to the diagram above, according to your room allowance, and at your avr/preamp/receiver or whatever you are using, make the setting as left and right surround speakers.
  8. Any interest in an Chigoland GTG

    Of course you can do this anyway you want to. I am just happy to have a GTG at all. So my idea is we could go with a spreadsheet method and choose the date with the least objections if we don't get more luck. Hard to find common ground of a large number of folks with varying priorities. Just my .02
  9. WTB: Risers for Chorus II

    Please allow me. Go to your local lumberyard or big box store or Woodcraft store and buy 2 pieces of unfinished walnut boards 1" x 3" x 6' long. Set the saw to a 45 degree bevel. Out of the first board, cut off the end to create your 45. Flip your board, measure 18 1/2" long to long and cut again. Repeat. Then cut 2 more pieces 15 1/2" long to long same way. Grab the next board and do the same thing again. Now you have risers. All you need to do is wood glue the miter joint, clamp them together with 24" clamps. Later when you can visit a friend with some tools, you can predrill 1/16" and hand nail 2" hard finish nails into the joints. Watco walnut oil with a rag, and wipe dry. When dry, flip your Chorus II's upside down. Attach small angle brackets of your choosing to the risers by predrilling shallow holes and 5/8" wood screws. Now lay the riser on the bottom of the speaker and predrill and screw in place. Finally attach 5/8" metal furniture nails by nailing into the 4 corners of the risers. The metal furniture nails have built in spikes and just bite in when struck with a hammer. Flip speakers over, attach speaker cable and start the party. For less than $100 total, you test or learn some skills and keep the tools you buy, borrow what you don't have, invite a friend for help, and get what you want right now. Attach photo op here. I left out one step on purpose, for those of you with access to a router, a 3/4 cove bit will due fine for the upper riser edge. For the original black trim paint, or those who have original Klipsch black lacquer, Dupli-Color semi-gloss black lacquer aerosol spray paint is the closest match in a can.
  10. Taming the K 53 K.

    IMO, adding an active crossover would be "easiest". A product like https://www.minidsp.com/applications/digital-crossovers/digital-crossover-basics#anchor-2
  11. **SOLD**

    I sold my pair of Quartet with same upgrades in 14 hours once they hit ebay, so hang in there, be patient, and firm in your conviction.
  12. WTB: Chorus II crossovers

    I have 2 pairs of Klipsch Chorus II's in Walnut. Set as L, R, SL, SR. I also have one pair of Forte II. One single Forte II is used as Center. L, C, R have Crites crossover boards. I am asking for 4 separate crossover boards for the Chorus II.
  13. WTB: Chorus II crossovers

    I would sell my Crites chorus II crossovers to you if @Deang wants to build me 2 pairs to replace them. Send me a PM.
  14. The Quartets front facing grills will be at least 20" out from the wall. I placed mine on rolling furniture movers https://m.harborfreight.com/material-handling/dollies/18-in-x-12-in-1000-lb-capacity-hardwood-dolly-63098.html to bring them up closer to ear level, and ease of placement.
  15. WTB: Titanium Mid Diapghram's

    I have a pair of forte II with Klipsch Parts sourced K-52/K-53-Ti installed along with bandpass boards and crites crossover boards. I am currently using one Forte II now as my center channel. The other is stored on a shelf in a bedroom. In home theater applications, I have never noticed the midrange overpowering the other drivers regardless of 375watts rms. When I used them as a front pair in 2 channel, I loved the sound and definition using a Carver TFM-42, an amplifier well known for warm tube-like sound. IMHO the titanium klipsch parts are more refined and therefore are more equipment sensitive. My advice is "Don't change your midrange drivers unless you own neutral to warm sounding amps and preamps, or plan to later." I will mod my 4 Chorus II's midranges after I purchase another amplifier. ----------------------------- My System Main system : Panasonic TC-P60ST60 plasma; Denon AVR-X6200W; Outlaw 5000; Klipsch RSW-10 sub; modified Klipsch Chorus II Fronts; modified Klipsch Forte II center; modified Klipsch Chorus II surrounds; modified Klipsch Academy rear heights; JBL L20T3 front heights; Mogami 10ga speaker cables, Mogami interconnects; custom gaming pc Secondary system LG 47" LCD; Onkyo tx-nr818; JBL 240Ti Fronts; JBL L40T3 Center; JBL L100T3 Surrounds; Mogami cables; custom htpc/server.
