    Analysis Interconnects

    Build some. Get Eichmann Bullet plugs, some 26 ga solid core. Use a cotton sheath. less is more.

    Walnut tweeter lenses

    Tennessee walnut is fine with me. I can live with hickory, mock orange, locust, black gum, sassafras, dogwood, or hackberry. When are you shipping?
  3. This is using a velocity constant of one. Most propagation coefficients range from 0.75 - 0.8. But still long.

    My new K-horns setup needs your help.

    I have weird tastes. 1. Onkyo M-504. Never heard one, like the looks. 2.McIntosh MA5300. Got to be good. I like a quiet amp. Hook each up. Turn on. Set gain to lowest level and listen to K-Horns. Then crank gain and listen to noise. Quietest amp wins.
  5. A room 12 x 18 is not bad. With the locations of your windows a Klipschorn is out. I think Heresy is your best option. The 375.00 ones in CT might be the ticket. Once home you can talk to Bob Crites about getting the most out of them for reasonable amounts of money. But for maybe 800 - 1200 you should be able to swing a pair of Hiii. They are engineered to be a little more efficient and have flatter response than the earlier versions. Many who OWN Hiii and either Hi or Hii say there is step up in sound quality. A sub will be fine if you do not set the level too high. The neighbors will know if you set the sub level too high. There is not much below 60 Hz in most music. I have a car with a car show stereo and the bass gets muddy if the level is adjusted too high. Many subs have a crossover built in and allow passing the high pass filtered output to the mains. I prefer doing this with software but most subs are okay in this function. I purchased Hiii and loved them. Sold my previous speakers which were more expensive than the Hiii.
  6. My listening area is a kind of similar. Loft with two large bookcases full of lp’s in the two corners where Khorns could sit. Guess that is why I have La Scala’s. When I retire may try something like the OP’s rig to eliminate the sub and finally use a Klipschorn.

    Heresy III

    I went the other direction in rolling in a sub with LSii. Cross at 60 Hz. Use 18 dB/octave high pass and 6 dB slope for low pass. This extends the subwoofer output to try to balance the falling output of the LSii.
  8. I like your idea. The 2,000.00 for a 30+ year old pair of La Scala is high. But I looked around Houston and that was the price range I found. Or beater club speakers for a grand. Wife issues with that option. A great price is 800.00 - 1200.00. If I had found a nice pair in that range I would not own LS ii. Look in the Garage sale forum here. Look on Craig’s List, eBay, even Audiogon. Several members here manage to locate Klipsch at reasonable prices.

    Moving La Scala II upstairs solo?

    I put my LS ii upstairs. I would guess the bass bin at 140. The top is light. It is small and 3/4”. I piss anted mine with a strap. But used to move piano’s and safes for a living. They are too large to bear hug. You need a strap to get them on your back. Anyone that thinks a 100 pounds is this thinking LS i. The LS ii bass bin is a load.

    Heresy III slope angle?

    I think tilt back is listening distance related. Close listening benefits from greater tilt back.
  11. When I read the released details of the AK6 and AK5 La Scala’s I must have been reading and comprehending two different items. I THOUGHT these latest TOL Heritage models had switched to titanium diaphragms. Not sure that it makes a difference. Wife would not let another pair in the house. She asks why a new pair of H iii are boxed up in the attic. Try to keep her out of the attic.

    Mike, PM your address and I will put a handful in the mail to you. I have a few of the 1/4”& 3/16” Blue connectors. Quality, USA connectors.

    What's the best tweeter?

    I grabbed them off this site. Think Dave A posted most. I will have to look for them. Also think Claude ran some of the tests.

    New La Scala Tweeters need break-in?

    Congrats!!! The LS ii are working well in my system. Think they expose issues.
