  1. Klipsch Professional KPT-904

    WAF is about 1 out of 10 ... but she loves the sound ... major improvement over my Cornwall's
  2. Klipsch Professional KPT-904

    @rockhound . Thanks a lot! Lot of sound for a 12x12 room ... OK; great for the man cave Thanks for the "no bracket needed" .... think the box will look nicer if I flush-mount the horn. Yes, will use grilles; if you can PM me contact I'd appreciate it. Can probably make some for the horn boxes, but also want to put grilles on the 904 box - which will be a bit harder. What kind of cloth did you use? (Thinking about the classic Heritage cloth which Bob Crites still sells.) Many thanks, Emile
  3. The Most Popular Songs 1940-2016

    Too old to remember But ... first song I recall (parents played it over and over again) is Edith Piaf's "Non je regrette rien" from 1960. Cheers, Emile

    Hi @rockhound . Thanks! Guess I am not the only one who thinks these tweeters are too ugly for a living room ... OK; WAF! My living/tv room is "small" (about 15 x 20 ft), but one side and half the rear is "open" to a 25 x 35 ft area. The 904's will be elevated about a foot ... so the horn will be about 5ft high. Too high? Think I should keep the bracket to "point it down?" Many thanks! Cheers, Emile

    OK; decided on "removing" the tweeter and building a small box for it (with DuraTex paint and a grille - main woofer box will get a grille also). Prob 17W x 11H x 11D to "just" fit the horn into it (and throwing away the adjustment bracket). Stupid or??? Main question ... do I enclose the box, or just leave the rear "open?" Many thanks and cheers, Emile
  6. Ebay K402 and K510 with drivers

    Hi @The Dude. Was there yesterday and saw 3 sets ... did not look closely enough to see the "cracks," but did see one or two which did NOT have any cracks Yes; he only has "one set" listed on eBay. Cheers, Emile

    These 904's actually look pretty decent. Think it will cost WAY too much to get them veneered, so think I'll just stick with the "industrial" black look. So; think I'll build a box for the horns. 3 questions ... 1) should I even bother with the angle brackets or just put the driver/horn in a box without it, 2) anyone know where to get this patchy black paint? and 3) any ideas on grilles? Many thanks, Emile

    Seller I got these 904's from also has about a dozen drivers for 904's. And ... THREE PAIR of 402/510's. Most in better shape than the pics; a couple look brand new. And he is willing to make a deal ... offered me a pair for $1000 - but had no more room in my SUV Guy seems honest; think he is from Thailand.
