  1. Nice amp. Wanna sell it? (j/k)
  2. I run 7 Klipsch Pro speakers on an Onkyo 7.1 receiver. It's supposedly rated at 120W per channel, but the RMS rating is probably closer to 85 or 90. Halfway up the volume is painful and will run you out of my office, long before any clipping occurs. *<;o)
  3. With clipping, visualize it via a sine wave. Normally it's a smooth curve up and over the top. Now if you are trying to push too much power through an amp that cannot handle it, the top of the "mountain" curve ends up getting chopped off flat. This acts like DC current, always on during that flat part. Your drivers are run on AC, so the voltage goes from high to low 60 times a second. So your drivers move in and out as per the voltage. During the clip, it's powering the driver with a constant on. Drivers don't like that, heat up, and burn out. (I know I took a lot of shortcuts with this explanation, but they are simply concepts...) My post count was 667 on this one. The neighbor of the beast. *<;o)
  4. KSB 1.1's. One SW8 II. One pair of KSF 8.5's. Two 1979 Super Heresy! A pair of Epic CF3's V1.0. A sequential pair of R-14M's. A super nice pair of KP-3002's. A matched serial pair of KP-101's. 2 sequentially numbered pairs of KG4's. A pair of KPT-100 taken from a theater in Gainesville. A pair of KP-1000's, modified into 2-way garage speakers. A perfect pair of 1977 ‘Heresy E’ export model "H-WO", laser emblems. I've not yet sold any Klipsches, much to the chagrin and consternation of the Mrs.
  5. I bet he's done with this particular forum after his "encounter"...
  6. If the system he built does what he wants, why change things? Granted, if capacitors have aged over time and the sound with them, then you might not notice that anything wonky has occurred. It's always fun to play with new gear, however, and as long as you don't sell off the original parts of the system, you can always put things back to what you liked.
  7. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This. Exactly this. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ @Steve Brunson
  8. I think you might find that the bass response was curtailed more by the smaller cabs than the woofer change. I doubt the company will give you new inspection stickers for speakers that were remade into cabinets that did not match the original specs, and one of the three drivers being replaced. You should be able to lift the paper labels off the "new" cabs successfully. Google something like label removal chemicals or sprays.
  9. In that case, I would pass myself unless I needed a set for another room. Keep your eyes out for a reasonable pair of KG 5.5, that might be worthwhile for you.
  10. I should say something helpful... They look decent, some small dings on the risers. If they are $200 or less, they are a good deal IMHO.
  11. @Yukon888. Welcome to the forum. It would be good if we could see the serial numbers, that would help a lot.
  12. Wecome to the Forum. The repair you suggested will most likely be okay. If not, it needed replaced anyway... *<;o)
  13. I hope that there is another prodigy that @Chief bonehead can foster and teach, to bring up the next generation. PWK started something that will hopefully become a grand tradition.
  14. Here is a video where a guitarist plays a copy of the very first electric guitar built by the genius Les Paul: (LOTS of cool history!)
  15. That's funny. Leo Fender was friends with Les Paul, and had access to the research Les was performing in his creation of the world's first electric guitar. Gibson was waffling and not sure that Les Paul's creation would sell, so Fender came out with the first commercial guitar. Even though Fender was having a field day selling these things, Gibson still balked about putting their name on these guitars, so Les said "Put my name on it".

    1957 Khorns for sale

    The easiest way to do pictures is in my signature at the bottom of this post. If you have any questions, please let me know.
  17. Those beat my deal on Epic CF3’s for $100. I’m jealous (but not too much)...
  18. Have you been drinking red wine next to your speakers again, Randy?
  19. Set up your Cornwalls and follow geoff.'s advice. If you look at the bottom of my signature, there is a quote from Paul Klipsch. Most anything "bad" you will hear in other recordings are not a failure on the part of the Cornies, as explained by the man himself, PWK. Give your ears some time to get used to what you are hearing. It is a more faithful re-creation of what was recorded than any other speaker system in this price range. Another fantastic recording is "Owner of a Broken Heart". Play that at your normal volume, and you will fall in love.

    Wow, I haven't heard that one in years.

    The other issue is the fact that this is a Klipsch owned and operated site. Their playground, their ball and bat, their rules.

    Nearly all of the forums I have been a part of have these same issues. On another site where I am active, they tried to solve it by building a sub topic for new people to say hello. They loaded that forum with a bunch of pinned threads that answered most all of these beginner questions, and newbies were pointed to this area and asked to read those threads. This area of the forum was marked "Flame Free", and old timers that jumped salty in that area were relegated to the Gulag for a week. They learned pretty quickly to be nice in that forum. Anything silly or stupid outside of that area was open to snark and ridicule. Most new members ignored this sage advice, and constantly posted threads asking the same questions that were already covered. The smart (wise?) ones actually read the threads, and knew the answers before posting. Those were the guys that stuck around. There is no way to fix the willful ignorance on the part of the others.
  23. You should ping him directly so that he gets the notification/ email: @dvsbiker
