    epic cf 3/4 version differences

    This is what I have right now. First attempt at a sound absorber. Need another pair and have an idea for a second attempt

    Marantz 7704 Parasound A52+ Center is (will be) vertical standing. It's only set up for stereo and I have all my amps sitting on the center as it lays on it's side right now. I still want to build a front stage and need to acquire an AT screen along with building a pair of full marty subs. Things are moving slow. Just bought this house 2 months ago and I'm the only one living here so I don't have nearly the spending money I did when I was renting half a trailer home

    I have 5 CF4 actually. Found a lone wolf v3 at the Pilgrimage this year. The idea is to make a surround setup with them. But the more I think about it the more I realize I may need alternatives for the back side for space reasons. May end up trying to pick up a bunch of KV4 or something possibly

    I have both v1 and v3 sets and I'm in Minnesota. You can come by and play some tunes for some time if you want to hear for yourself. I've never A/B them side by side myself. It will be biased somewhat as I don't have any silicone on the back of the v3 horns like I do the v1. But if you're interested let me know

    CF-3 which version?

    Version 2 still uses the same woofers. v3 lost the stiff/rigid woofers of the first two

    I'm guessing you messaged the guy on the craigslist ad since I have nothing in the PM box 😅

    WTB: KLF 20/30 Horn (K703 horn)

    There is a pair local to me listed for $160 (drivers included). I can scout them for you and work something out if you aren't close https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/ele/d/klipsch-klf30-midrange-driver/6673016217.html

    Same here. Which place are you looking at? The only speaker salons I know of are Hi-Fi Sound and Stereoland

    You can try adding dynamat or silicone to the back of the horn. I did 3/4 tube of silicone on the recommendation of @wvu80 and found it very useful for me

    I've always been under the impression that solid state amps have higher damping factor than tube amps. But even with that said, I moved from a vintage Marantz 2270 (Damping factor: 45) to a Parasound A52+ (Damping factor >1100 @ 20Hz) and it's kinda amazing to hear the differences. Woofers hardly move at all even at full volume. If I make the Marantz the pre-amp (different than what I have typically) and throw the bass knob all the way up then they certainly do have visual movement. But otherwise they are very still even with ~200 watts flowing through them. Now, I do have v1 and v3 pairs so I'm not sure how the woofers will behave between the two as I only have the v1 hooked up. And the v3 woofers are MUCH softer than the first generation for certain. I suppose I can do a test or video if that means anything for you

    Is that speaker cone cut out in the middle to support the tweeter?
