    Favorite childhood toys?

    My favorite toy was the Marx Shooting Gallery. Had to be the noisiest indoor toy I ever had - Internet picture.

    LaScala's and Tubes.

    MC 30's go great with Chorus II's and the ST-70 goes well with RB51 II's and Chorus II's.

    RF3II vs RF82II

    I purchased complete new RF3 II crossovers from Bob Crites and am very happy with them. I recommend them highly.

    Other brands of speakers...

    Yeah but the whizzer cone is where the real magic is. Maybe a horn loaded whizzer is the next level. @Deang your reply really made me laugh and I must admit partly because I had not thought about that. How many Forte 3 drones would I need? 😁

    Other brands of speakers...

    The first set of speakers I owned were Panasonic Thrusters - 6.5" full range with a 6.5" passive radiator - no tweeter just a whizzer cone. Not very nice but apparently I liked the passive idea because my next purchased set were Chorus II's. In between I built several speakers and cooked off many tweeters. Now with Jubilees I am not sure where I would go next???

    HD closes KC manufacturing plant

    The Cleveland being the performance engine and the Windsor being the truck engine. With a stronger block design for trucks the Windsor is capable of more power. It is easy to stroke the Windsor to 427 CI today.

    HD closes KC manufacturing plant

    I bought one of the tariff buster 699cc bikes from Honda. It had 83hp instead of the 60 hp the 750 version had the year before - it was an 86 model so tariff would have been 1985. Compared to the bike a year before the new 699cc version was far superior in looks, weight, and performance. It had an 11K redline. I am a V8 person but when it comes to bikes I like inline 4's unless we talk about the CBX. Always liked the HD's but the performance and price were a problem for me. I do buy american but broke with that for performance which HD did not have in the 80's. P.S. Got hit by a car a few years ago, got new hip to prove it, so gave up riding until children are out of college.
  8. My sister had one of those - it did work flawlessly.

    A motor like that would be my stereo.

    Earphone Advice

    After having a chance to use the X11's I really have to agree again - these are the most comfortable I have ever worn. As a bonus they reproduce many different kinds of music with good balanced tone and dynamics, a thumbs up recommendation from me. I wish I had gotten another pair.

    CES 2018: Klipsch Blog

    There is a nice blurb about the Klipsch Museum in the Klipsch Heritage Classic Brochure on page 14. This is part if the Press kit.

    RIP Jerry Van Dyke

    He could really play the banjo which I enjoy seeing every time I watch McLintock - RIP
  13. Welcome to the forum GSM. While I am not a Heresy owner I do know that parts are available to restore the modified speaker to original configuration. I would have a hard time believing that tweeter would sound better that the original, that said without hearing it. Also better upgrade parts designed for that set of speakers are available as well - try the Bob Crites website as I have bought great replacement parts from him that fit exactly. www.critesspeakers.com - no relation to me other than I am a customer. P.S. Nice find!

    Hopefully the 1502 will become available and a third LP Bin.

    Home Theater Receiver question

    I have used Yamaha products since 1989 and been very happy with them - still have the original integrated amp I powered my new at the time Chorus II's. Currently I am using one of Yamaha's Aventage receivers with and RF3 setup that has been without issue for many years and it sounds great. While I prefer Yamaha my advice is at least buy something at least midgrade.

    Earphone Advice

    I stumbled on a deal for X11's just before Christmas and have used them for several days. Schu is right about the bass being lite but they do sound good and balanced - better than my R6's. They are lighter and easier to wear than any others I have tried. A bargain at the price I paid.

    Internet slowing down on several sites

    Just to throw in my two cents, you do realize the Net Neutrality was enacted only about two years ago. The Internet has been around decades - Right?

    Thanks for the heads up Chad - The TOS was easy to renew.

    honest indoor 2 channel

    I agree with dtel, somebody should have told me sooner as well. I have Jubilee's in a 20 x 22 foot room and they sound better that my reference home theater and my Chorus II's. I think you need to redo your math.

    Heritage Headphone Amplifier

    Very cool and can act as a pre-amp.

    Klipsch Jubilees and Roy's brand new Xilica Settings

    + 1 for Xilica Was looking to go passive on the Jubilees but @Chief bonehead convinced me active is the way to go , so went with the Xilica from @MetropolisLakeOutfitters and must say it was the best choice for me. I am continually amazed at how this system sounds. I'm now one of those people that thinks, all day, about getting home to my stereo.
