    Of course it can be discussed without bringing politics into it.

     

    I respectfully disagree.  Science is fact based.  Gaslighting works on humans, but not on a virus.  


  2. I seem to be in agreement with others above.  I doubt your amp is the problem, or that a new amp is the solution.   I suggest the following:

    1. Allow time for them to break in;
    2. Experiment with placement, corners work best;
    3. Continue to insist that Klipsch correct the grille defects; and
    4. Consider a subwoofer, or two, or three, or four.

    In my opinion, every Klipsch Heritage speaker benefits from one, or more, good subwoofers; horn loaded are best.  That is not to say that subs are NEEDED.  Klipschorns and Cornwalls produce most of the bass available in recordings of music.  My “Supered”  HIPs produce bass rivaling Cornwalls in my small space.  Nevertheless, the use of four tapped horn subs flat to 25Hz powered by a pair of class D amps, provides that low bass impact unavailable without a sub.  The explosions and exaggerated bass available in games and movies have created false expectations of what natural bass is and what it sounds like.

     

    People are amazed at how little perceptible sound comes from the four TH subs, but how much of a subjective difference it makes having them energized.  For example, the heartbeat at the beginning of DSOTM is fine and can be heard and felt without the subs.  Nonetheless, switching on the subs makes it sound better and can rattle the walls, windows, etc. at high volume.  Switch off the amp driving the HIPs and there is remarkably little perceptible information coming from the subs.

     

    Welcome to the forum.  Enjoy your beautiful Cornwall IVs for many years to come.

     

     


  3. Recalling Spencer Davis reminds me of Steve Winwood, a one time bandmate to SD.   My millennial nephew, Matt, was headed to a concert.  My brother asked his son who he was going to see.  Matt said Eric Clapton and that “some guy named Steve Winwood was the opening act.” My brother informed Matt that Steve Winwood is not “some guy” and he doesn’t “open” for anybody.  He explained that Clapton and Winwood are peers, despite the disparity in fame and commercial success.

     

    When he returned from the concert, he understood my brother’s comments and agreed that Winwood was more than “some guy.”

  4. To discourage tailgating, the car in my avatar had a spring loaded rocker switch on the transmission tunnel that could activate the brake lights, including a CHMSL in the roll bar, without applying the brakes.  I think Flammable’s approach is more effective.

  5. That is a flamethrower.  Note the spark plug used to ignite unburned fuel.  That would be quite spectacular at night.

     

    If you’re a passenger in Flammable, you are in flammable, does that make you inflammable?

  6. Congratulations Chuck on 15 years.

     

    Inquiring minds want to know what you plan to do with all those letters “D” you’ve stockpiled by skipping them when they are supposed to be included.  I’m certain you used to know what to do with them.

    What are those Dave?  How close are you to Hinkley?

     

    They didn’t all get the social distancing memo about using every other post.

  8. Thank you for posting this.  It does bring back memories.  Where did you locate it?  Are there more like this available?

     

    There were several duplicate pages which threw off the numbering.  An ad from Klipsch & Associates is on page 190 of the magazine, which due to the redundant pages is at page 197 of 215 of the link.

     

    What is an inflation adjustment from 1957 to 2020?  Even without a specific multiplier, those 1957 prices seem high.  For example, $525 for a Sony Superscope R2R was a lot of money in 1957.
