    Here's our car, it's a LOT of fun! Only 550 HP out of a 5 liter supercharged engine. The interior is incredible. It has the optional refrigerator, back seat videos in the headrests, and a huge sunroof. It is fun to be at a stoplight beside some "boy racer", and smoke him on the green. https://www.motortrend.com/news/2010-range-rover-sport-autobiography/ 2010 Range Rover Sport Auto Biography - 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show - Motor Trend Like the Range Rover Sport Supercharged, the Autobiography Limited Edition -- debuting at the Los Angeles Auto Show -- is refreshed for 2010. That means much more powerful engines and tweaked styling. www.motortrend.com
  2. I've been watching this ad on Offerup for quite a while now. They started at $150 (I think), then dropped them to $100. Then $80. Finally at $50 I couldn't stand it any longer. I replied to the advertisement. The spec sheet looked really good, so I bought the pair of Fender 2841's for $40. Just something to goof around with. Similar specs, size, and shape as my KP-3002. The little "butt cheeks" horns sealed the deal. I couldn't help myself. I will post actual pictures once I get them out of the car and set up somewhere for testing. I also got a Behringer "guitar" style amp for $20 that is missing a couple of knobs. This pic is of the same make, but in a little cleaner shape: @Emile
  3. Please try the posting site that's in my signature. It works well, and it's free and unlimited.
  4. I'm surprised that I didn't find Klipsch earlier than I did, to be honest. My brother in law (think well to do lawyer) was going to donate everything in a storage unit, and told us if we wanted anything, take it. There was a pair of KG4 in pristine shape, so I got them to try out. Wow, was I glad I did. They sounded better than nearly everything I've ever heard in the "home speaker" category (and better than a lot of "pro" gear). I bought a second pair of them, also in perfect condition. The Bose 901's went bye-bye very quickly. I'm now listening to Fleetwood Mac on a fully Klipsch Pro 7.1 system in my office as I type this. My wife loves the Epic CF3's. The list keeps getting longer. *<;o)
  5. My wife says I like "fiddly" work, so she and I both agree with you!
  6. To be perfectly honest, as a real bass lover you should have a subwoofer with a pair of stock Heritage Heresies. There have been a lot of conversations regarding this around here... With your space considerations, there are a couple of things you can do. Add a sub to the far right, hiding it behind the plant and the end of your bookshelf, firing into the corner (This will sort of mimic the Klipschorn bass design that uses the walls for extra amplification). Or (if you are more adventurous), grab an identical pair of subs that are front firing. The pair can then be used as speaker stands without changing the footprint very much at all. I've heard that a sheet of sorbothane between the top of the sub and the bottom of the speakers will help with any excess vibration and protect both from scratches (I've used regular rubber sheeting between speakers successfully!). This will also free you up a little bit as far as speaker placement goes. Just an old guy's opinion, and someone else may have better ideas.
  7. I love your setup. It's rather clean looking! You might think about moving the speakers to the left and right around 6" (and the same forward!), and slightly toe them into your listening position. That space in front of the speakers is already "dead", not being used. If it were my set, I would bring the front of the speakers exactly as far forward as the front edge of the TV stand. Angled toward the middle puts the "focus" of the sound directed more toward your ears. A small rug will help with your "panning" issue, cutting down on the reflections you are getting off the floor. You can always move them back if you are having a party or something.
  8. I should read all replies before posting. *<;o)
  9. I love the PK initials on the PRIDE sheet under the sanding department. If that means what I think it does... That is one heck of a card to have. You should make sure to put it in a small ziploc bag, and tape that inside the speaker it came from. Preserve it for posterity.
  10. Here's one on the cheap ($45!). I've owned a couple of AVR's in this product range, and they do what you need. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/ele/d/san-leandro-sony-51-home-theater/7159376947.html If you can do $95, here's a better unit, 7.1 surround (it's basically the same unit I have running 7.1 / 4K TV as a monitor), in my office: (remember that you can always haggle a bit on Craigslist) https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/ele/d/redwood-city-onkyo-ht-rc-watt-hdmi-4k-v/7159002341.html @ETO
  11. The organ amps actually do sound very good. "Nice watts", as you put it. As it stands now, my office 7.2 surround system uses four of these amps, driving two KPT-100's (doubled up on the center channel), and two KP-1000's (both back channels), and all four speakers sound fantastic. I would call it a warm, rich sound. The bass and mid bass / woofers are awesome sounding, even at very low wattage. Every bit of the audio seems perfectly clear, no "mud" at all. Using the "All Channels" setting takes both sides of the stereo feed, and puts them through the proper side. Only the center channel plays both feeds, and the staging makes the music sound as if the band is in the center of the room, all around me (like I am on the stage, in the middle of the band). I'm thinking of setting up the guest room / parents bedroom with a setup of KG4's, utilizing the last two amps in the collection. Vinyl, CD, and Blu-Ray. It's actually my plan to have a separate listening room with a stereo setup (don't tell the Mrs.!). They sound very similar to tube amps that I've worked with in the past. I've tried them with both with regular line levels and pre-amplified feeds. They don't seem to care what you feed them. If you can find a pair of them (and they seem to be very inexpensive on eBay), give it a shot. I think you will be glad that you did.
  12. This seems a reasonable price with one speaker having a water spot on top: https://orlando.craigslist.org/wan/d/longwood-klipsch-forte-ii-speakers/7153664777.html I would have a set of dark glass tops cut, if necessary. I can't tell from this photo, so maybe it isn't so bad after all...
  13. Thanks for the heads up. I go away for one weekend, and missed out on a great deal. I appreciate you thinking of me...
