  1. Welcome. I have a pair of CF2s that I've owned for 23 years. Bought them new. New Xovers last year by Bob Crites a fellow forum member and replaced a horn that I bought from another forum member at the same time. My control amp went out and damaged those components and if it hadn't been for the help from members of this forum they'd be sitting collecting dust. Be happy to answer any questions you have about them if I can. Heres a link to the specs. The picture is wrong but the specs are right. https://web.archive.org/web/20130205065520/http://www.klipsch.com/cf-2
  2. Those sound horrible especially after they fail and take out both sets of Xovers and a horn that's not in production any longer. A big shout out to Bob Crites for the new XOs, a fellow forum member who's name is evading me right now for the flawless replacement horn, and to Rotel and Audiogone for the brand new amp at half price. Lol
  3. Or if the plastic threads strip out. Lol
  4. During a night of drinks and music by the pool my Groove speaker got knocked off the coping and fell into the water and made its way to the bottom of the hot tub. I thought for sure it was toast. It was completely submerged for at least ten seconds. Out of desperation I placed it in a container of rice immediately and left it for three days. Much to my surprise after the time in the desiccant it powered on and works flawlessly without any noticeable change in soundstage. I think Klipsch can up that rating from water resistant to water proof. I'll vouch for y'all.
  5. Love my Epics and after 22 years with them I have zero desire to search for anything else. I had my Xovers repaired by Bob Crites who is a member here a couple years ago. Believe it or not they can sound better and Bob can make it happen. Congrats on your purchase!
  6. I bet that electron microscope is a chick magnet filled with positive electrons.
  7. My previous home took on water during tropical storm Allison. I lost all of my furnishings and had 51k in flood damage repairs to the structure and replacing appliances and furnishings. I hauled my Epics up into the attic to save them. Even though the insurance would have covered the cost for them they couldn't have replaced them. That may be the reason I have a bad back some 18 years later. Those things weigh a ton. I still have them and Crites repaired the Xovers about a year ago. Was it worth it, you betcha!
  8. I have a R10SW sitting right beside my rack. My table is on a Pangea Vulcan rack with spiked feet setting on half inch saucers on a wood floor. No issues with feedback or tracking at high volume 120wpc. The rack also comes with polyurethane gaskets that are placed between the shelves for isolation. It's a great rack for the money. You can pick one up online at Audio Advisor for $100.
  9. I watched an interview with John Lennon and Paul McCartney on AXS tv a few years back. Both of them said they prefer the mono releases of their work because of its similarity to a live performance. The white album in mono sounds fantastic. Better to my ears than the stereo version so I went out and bought The Doors self titled first LP in mono. It sounded like crap. There's obviously a lot of variation in recording studios and mastering but if done right mono can't be beat.
  10. I mounted an led light bar under the middle shelf to make cueing up easier when playing LPs
  11. It's a Pangea Vulcan Rack. I bought it online at Audio Advisor. They sell the saucers for the spiked feet as well.
  12. Not at all. It's a solid cherrywood hutch. Very sturdy and the 120wpc amp has seen 80 percent on the volume scale more than once. I have the sub set to front fire so the rack gets very little feedback as well.
  13. The 10" sub is perfect for the CF 2s. Took some fiddling to get the gain and frequency adjusted just right.
  14. Thanks! I couldn't see just throwing it out after the rear projection tv went out. We upgraded to a 60" led tv in the den and moved the hutch into the formal living area and turned it into a music room. Very happy with the way it turned out.
  15. Thanks. The 2s need the sub since I changed amps. The Rotel is much brighter than the old Kenwood separates I had that used to drive them.
