  1. Ignore. I was unaware until now. See below.
  2. 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.
  3. 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)
  4. Very cool. Nice price. Please let us know when the RP-160M's appear at 1/2 price.

  7. I know it has been a while, but I thought it was important to add this here. I envisioned something similar earlier, but this is much better than what was available at that time. Alexa Care Hub. https://www.amazon.com/Alexa-Care-Hub/b?ie=UTF8&node=21390531011 Introducing the Care Hub, a free feature in the Alexa app that gives you new ways to remotely check in on parents or loved ones. With an Echo device at your loved one's home and the Alexa app on your phone, you’ll know they’re up and active. You can also get notified if they ask Alexa for help. It’s a simple way to feel close even when you're apart. It’s easy to check in and know everything is going well throughout the day. A quick glance at the activity feed shows your loved one’s activity by category (like entertainment). You won’t see the song they played or what they said. Set up alerts to notify you if there's no activity or when the first interaction happens every day. It’s reassurance for you and independence for them. Alexa will call and send a notification to your phone if your loved one asks for help. You can then call or drop in on them through the Care Hub, or decide to contact emergency services.

  9. Old news. It is now ok for anyone to question and comment. Not just me. Anyone. You too. No one is special here. We learned all about this prior to this thread creation. I did not and will not bash any thread. I feel like YOU are trying to bully me. That is not OK. STOP. This is the way.
  10. These are not original Klipsch parts, or even good reproductions. These are scraps of wood. The asking price clearly does not commensurate the sale item or quality.
  11. What's with that extra plywood cap with old paint and janky 1/2" plywood screwed to the inside? Couldn't afford the extra expense of new wood and some extra hardware? What a deal. I have some solid oak scrap wood around here in better shape anyone could have for far less than a hundred dollar bill.
  12. Was it actually $1500 for the pair? Not the asking price for each? Verified? Who checked? If yes then... @wvu80Will you please add it to the spreadsheet at the list price? Thanks.

    Go get 'em!

    I actually bought something to solve a problem like the one suggested above. The factory cable to an amplifier sometimes would sag and disconnect causing the amp to lose all power. I recommend the product in the link below for a solution to that problem. The one I have actually uses 12awg 20 amp cable so there is real weight. https://www.amazon.com/Tripp-Lite-Computer-Connector-P007-L03/dp/B07GX86ZQM/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=locking%2Bpower%2Bcable%2Biec%2B14awg&qid=1606148340&sr=8-2&th=1

    Low hours on them. And the ceramic is an upgrade from the wood ones! Here is some more info for those that might not know what they are missing. Great read. https://www.musicdirect.com/accessories/Cable-Elevators-8PK
  15. Good call. Thanks for making the deal even better.
  16. Title says Klipsch Heritage Speakers - $1,500 (Tallahassee) Subject says Klipsch Heritage Speakers pair. Mint condition with custom glass tops. Moving and they need a new home. $1750.00 new apiece.
  17. Simple question: what is the next step up from Chorus II? Simple answer. Chorus III. Wished for it, but we did not get that. So we have Cornwall IV. We, not including me only because I can't afford 5 of them. CWIV really narrowed the gap with the LaScala group too. I remain extremely happy with my modified CHII X5 set-up regardless of the current state of new speakers that are currently available on the market.
