  1. I completely agree with you. I originally had my "other" speakers in what is now my Klipsch room and in a/b testing I realized that my room needed directivity and not wide dispersion. Most of us have to make some sacrifices because of the rooms we listen in. The Klipsch designers really have done great work in considering the room as a major part the equation. Did I mention I think the cabinet work is freaking awesome.
  2. You got plenty of credibility in my book. Just between you and me, ssshhh don't tell the others, I own and buy more than only Klipsch products. To show my allegiance this coming weekend, Klipsch will be my first stop at the Axpona 2019 audio expo in Chicago, Illinois
  3. Just having fun deciphering the communication breakdown by multiple parties in this thread. Just hoping to lighten things up in here.
  4. I am keeping one pair for myself.
  5. One more available. Like new old stock. It is perfect in every way. Literally as close to new old stock as you can get. Fresh pics coming Sunday along with a new special price for Klipsch Community members only. Look for the new thread Sunday in Garage. Shipping is double boxed to protect the original Klipsch Academy box and packaging.
  6. First one is sold. Crites titanium tweeter is gone. Crites crossover board is gone.
  7. Final Hours and the Sumo Andromeda and Sumo Electra will be gone. Send your best offer now.

  9. I just heard the RP8000F last week and the owner of them choose a Parasound 5250 over Classe and Marantz. The subwoofer was a SVS PB16 Ultra.
  10. Axpona 2019 one week away. I am going to the Klipsch room. I also hope to visit the following Anthem B&W Bryston Cary Audio Classe Emotiva Elac Focal Gik Acoustic Harmon KEF Krell Luxman Madisound Mcintosh Moon Audio Parasound Schiit SVS Triode
  11. https://www.toolshedamps.com/custom-amplifiers Check these out. Would be my local builder if I needed one. They have been used for powering several different klipsch conventions including CES2018. I just got off the phone an hour ago with the owner Matt. Funny thing, he had a local Craigslist ad for a pair of Cornwall III with 70th anniversary grills for sale. When he returned the call we chatted about Roy Delgado, tube power vs SS, and Anthem pre/pro's for multi channnel. Oh, and those CWIII's are walnut in the original box with 500 hours $3K and local pick-up only.
  12. Oiled Oak west of Knoxville, TN asking $350 https://knoxville.craigslist.org/ele/d/knoxville-klipsch-academy-center/6854713720.html
  13. My wife gets involved in my purchases. She travels with me, helps out in evaluation of what she hears, helps in determining when I am being overzealous and reaching beyond our living space and budget. Keeps me out of trouble and brings us both closer together. Not that she is into the audio scene, but she does like to be involved just like you said. If she is not interested, she leaves it up to me. I do not have to have any discussion with her on this item though. There is no way it fits into my future either.
  14. You have until Sunday to decide
  15. You have until Sunday to decide before I pull the add sell the Sumo's on Ebay.
  16. Never mind. I did not realize we shared pics on the other thread. Doh!😖
  17. 😖 There is no other choice. Design, engineer, and build new speakers or buy new ones. There are no other direct swaps on these.
  18. Really? I was not aware you owned them too. Are you willing to share a pic of your 250's. 😍 Mine are 250Ti. The woofer vent port foam repair requires removing the dust cap and pushing the foam plug from the inside out. A fine mesh screen (like the type used in a faucet aerator) replaces the original foam plug so no worries of deterioration down the road on that part. The foam was there just to keep trash out of the driver.
  19. Have you considered buying a used JBL 035tia?
  20. I have done the JBL diaphragm rebuilding myself. Need to do another 12 tweeters though. Not overly difficult, does requires patience, a steady hand, and don't make a mistake or you're SOL. F&)$!ng JBL foam is all over the place in them and all of it needs to be addressed. Woofer surrounds, woofer magnet vent ports, and tweeter diaphrams. Plus the cabinets constuction, finishes, grills, and fabric are sh!t. Sound fantastic though. There are better out there.
  21. In my experience the math will only get you close. For a perfect finish make a practice piece and template from that. Make sure you cut you miter joints at exactly the same angle no matter what. Cut it long and then....Fit,cut,fit,cut,fit,cut,etc.
