    A little confusing

    Now saying that they are the original owners and never been touched. Something is not right. $400 was too high for KG-4's ( found mine for $300) & may still be a little high for Quartets in my opinion. If someone went to the trouble to change the original x/o's over to new cups then who knows what else has been done.

    Bluetooth "iPod" Dock on Steroids

    If they sound good enough to replace those terrible old Heresy's you've got, let me know as I could probably take them off your hands. LoL Seriously, I realize you've got a lot of time & effort in this project but whenever there's time to get that BOM posted I'm sure several here would find it invaluable. Thanks

    A little confusing

    This popped up a while back and I just recently really looked at it. https://anchorage.craigslist.org/ele/d/klipsch-oak-speakers/6694230660.html Contacted the seller & informed them that this wasn't a KG-4. Obviously by the picture & dimensions it's a Quartet but the KG-1 binding cup is very concerning. They are lost. Someone told them it was a KG-4. Hope they aren't using that KG-1 binding cup with the KG-1 X/O. 😮

    Bluetooth "iPod" Dock on Steroids

    Been following this as a 'true' portable sound box is always in demand. Gone through more factory work boxes than I care to remember (Milwaukee, Ryobi, DeWalt etc.). Is an updated material list coming in the near future?

    Passive Radiator Grills

    Chose a couple of these 2-piece w/ 12" grills. https://www.parts-express.com/parts-express-steel-mesh-2-piece-grill-for-12-speaker-black--260-428 Thanks all.

    Passive Radiator Grills

    @Skichuck77 Thanks. Added hurricane nuts & stainless allen head screws to drivers so drilling around passives isn't an issue. I'll check them out.
  7. Wanting to protect my KG4 PR's from prying Italian Greyhound noses & other possible issues when they are moved around. Finally found the time to upgrade the X/O's and tweets, amazing difference in SQ and imaging. Also trying to negotiate for a pair of Quartets on CL & will want to protect those too. Tried searching older threads for an answer but couldn't find much on it. Wondered about some 12' automotive sub woofer grills but not sure where to source them. Anyone have any 'ingenious' & attractive options?

    ?Heritage Theater Bar?

    Yes, I agree. Ran the Sony DA1800ES room EQ. Probably not the best EQ but has always made a noticeable difference in the past. Also connected two channels up straight to my Carver M1.01 & M200t amps fed with a digital signal from my Cambridge 851N. Again, clear & crisp but diminutive sound with no presence or authority.

    Thinking something was wrong with mine. No distortion, clear & detailed but no mid range volume, very directional with a narrow band of detail in that if your listening height / location changed more than a few inches the SQ deteriorated immediately. I'm a firm proponent of sub's but I better be more impressed with the stand alone sound of a $2k+ speaker than the beautiful finish. In this case I wasn't. Set my pair of 1990 KG1's with Crites rebuilt x/o's & Ti diaphragms in place of the sound bar and it was a night & day difference. Love the brand just not this particular speaker. Hope it was a one off issue.

    As was my expectation. Sadly disappointed.

    ?Heritage Theater Bar?

    I have a RW10 for the sub and used it. Sound was hollow and disconnected without it. I realize it's a very small enclosure but my Polk 5 channel surround bar sounds so much fuller & lifelike. Hooked the bar up directly to my Carver M1.0t thinking the Sony DA188ES Receiver might be the issue. Still sounded like a pair of Bose Cubes to me. Maybe it's defective. Called Crut......d. & explained my problem, they said send it back. Have always been satisfied with their customer service. Already noticed that they have a returned & refurbished one for sale on their site. Should have known better to wait until the reviews were available.

    Listened to it for 2 weeks. Packed it up and sent it back. Crystal clear highs, little mid range & no low end what so ever. Beautiful speaker but highly over priced for $2200. Really disappointed. Wanted so bad to love it but my 2 KG1's for $50 sounded better in the same place. 😐

    WTH ?!?

    Emailed Customer Service about it but got no response.
