  1. I'm looking for new crossovers for my Volti-Modded Khorns. The BMS 4592nd driver is way more efficient than stock. Is there a way I could modify these for use? I mean I'm sure there is, but is it advisable? I bought the Volti package used and it did not include the crossovers. His crossovers seem kinda steep.
  2. I pasted it from google.pics. Showed up for me, but looks like it exceeded the image size limit.
  3. I don't have any real great pics of them. This will give you an idea though. My understanding is they took sheets of veneer and dyed them, reglued them together and then cut them to get the patter. They are not rosewood as some people assume.
  4. I paid $2700 for my '79 Ramblin Rose K-Horns less than a year ago. 4 hour round trip driving. Was happy to do it. They hardly ever come up within easy driving distance here (Cleveland) and when they do, they generally go fast unless there are major condition issues. I got $1200 for my Corwall 2s so I think the market for Klipsch Heritage is pretty solid here.
  5. I totally agree with you. You do have to spend quite a bit more to better it. I'm not saying it isn't a remarkable driver. I would like to hear it on the Volti horn profile, but the adapters are spendy. Might have to make my own Super Cornwall, lol. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  6. Following. Recently upgraded my Khorns with Volti-parts. I might be up for using the old drivers in a build like this. I look forward to what your solution is for the mid horn. Having had a pair of Cornwalls, I feel that was clearly the driver holding them back (same for the k-horn actually). I'm surprised there aren't more 3d-printed solutions for horns. Seems like a printer with a rotating turntable wouldn't need to be very large in order to pull off an oblate spheroid profile, but I will be the first to admit I am well out of my depth. I admire those of you that do this sort of engineering greatly. Excited to see what you come up with.
  7. $300 is a steal for a nice pair of KG4's in my book. They are so versatile and well balanced. You can not touch the look and performance of those speakers with anything new today at $300.
  8. I think you could just fasten them together and sail them across lake Ontario.
  9. They look fantastic. Scott stuff is magnificent. I've got a fully restored 340a and a pair of 210f Dynaural monoblocks. Some of the most beautiful gear ever made by any manufacturer. Scott gear does not get the respect it deserves.
  10. Damn right it has! I'm so grateful this thread produced such rapid results. Looks like I might have the new drivers tomorrow. I'll let you guys know my impressions once I've got them sorted. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  11. Its a Plycraft knock off. Curb find. Found this one too. I believe it's chromecraft. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  12. I'm in North East Ohio. What do you have? Keep in mind I just blew my madd money on John's Volti gear, lol Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  13. Thank you. I've collected for years. This is tip of the iceberg, lol.
  14. They are Ramblin Rose c1979. Not sure if you know how they are made, but I have read that it's made from sheets of birch and walnut that are dyed and reglued and radially cut to achieve that effect. Gotta be an expensive process. I've also read that there were only 25 pairs made with this veneer. The pic doesn't do them justice. They are hypnotic.
  15. Hey man! It's my wtb thread. Wtf? PM sent as well Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  16. I'm clearly fishing for a bargain, lol. I just bought the horns in January. Haven't broken the news to the wife that I'm planning on spending just as much to replace 2/3ds of the drivers. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  17. I get how they work and what they are for, I just wondered how you used them. So you never had them hooked up to see how they sound?
  18. I have never seen these before. Very interesting. How did you implement them?
  19. I'm looking to move to a 2'' midrange horn on my K-horns and thought I'd take a shot in the dark that someone might have moved on from the Volti Audio stuff or was looking to otherwise sell it. Pic of my horns because I love them.
  20. Time to pour some life back into this thread. Very interesting read. I too have less than ideal corners where a piece of window trim prevents the tail board from sealing to the back wall by a couple inches. I don't think I need to go the whole false corner route. Can I get away with widening the tail board and top and bottom of the bass bin to meet the walls? Is that flare distance created by the wall critical or is the air seal the critical part? I'm thinking I might try making it with some modeling clay or moldable weather stripping.
  21. $100 shipping Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  22. I have a pair in the garage. What are you offering? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
