  1. https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/ele/d/everett-klipsch-heresey/7395323772.html Look Ma, no flower pot stains!
  2. I saw references in older threads, but I thought I would share the download links if anyone hasn't checked it out yet. Great resource for older tubes, speakers and gear originally published starting in the mid 90's. Here is a link for free downloads: http://www.enjoythemusic.com/diy/0414/vacuum_tube_valley.htm As an example, Quarterly #13 (out of 20 posted) has an extensive interview with Paul Klipsch as the lead article. Here is an index of topics covered in all issues: VTVDEXnu.pdf
  3. Why not put it in the garage sale section here...not a lot of comparables out there...best offer?
  4. here's some pics (not my speaker, not my cat LOL)
  5. JBL WTBs frequent this site: http://www.audioheritage.org/
  6. https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/ele/d/seattle-speakerlab-factory-cornerhorn/7386903666.html These are the good early plywood units...
  7. direct predecessor...you can definitely see the influence of the Shorthorn (S version particularly) in the long vertical rear port in the early Cornwalls...also shares the smaller woofer opening like the early cornwalls... This "T" version is claimed to have more bass extension than the more common "S" version Don't mean to hijack the for sale thread...these are some of the rarest Klipsch units out there...hopefully they find a good home (with someone that will provide post purchase follow up with setup pics!!)
  8. So Cal prices tend to be higher...
  9. related topic: Interesting power cord kit build instructions from Bottlehead: https://bottlehead.com/bottlehead-power-cord-kit-assembly/
  10. The foam trick assumes your walls are fairly square and free of tough spots like windows, doorways, etc. Given your current placement, the left side with the window casing would rule that option out IMO. With the sealed back, you also will have some flexibility in determining how far out in your room the "sweet spot" is with the stock setup.
  11. Strongly suggest you add the backs (false corners)...I installed my khorns with the foam pipe insulation that many recommend, but didn't get the "magic" until I really pushed hard and pressed them into the corners, making a much more airtight seal...changes the entire high/low frequency balance...the bass was totally different and the shrillness disappeared for me (except on bad recordings) Suggest you try this first before other mods...couple cheap sheets of 3/4 " mdf and "Bob's your Uncle"
  12. https://spokane.craigslist.org/ele/d/spirit-lake-klipsch-heresy-speakers/7376871402.html need some cosmetic TLC....could be HII's
  13. Just buy a used Crown D-75 (a) for half your budget...you'd be surprised how good it sounds with the Klipsch stuff. I bought a couple just to get my toes wet with bi-amping/dsp and they surprised me with the quality of sound they enable from my H-II's and LaScalas. The L & R Gain controls and the balanced inputs are a bonus IMO. You may want to save a bit more for a decent tube combo.
  14. This one looked like good art (particularly when I was 16)... http://www.matiklarweinart.com/en/gallery/annunciation-1961.htm
  15. https://portland.craigslist.org/clk/ele/d/vancouver-klipsch-heresy-700/7371200895.html Add some new grills and you have a real bargain IMO...
  16. better question: is someone more protected against Covid-19 with a mask or with no mask?
  17. My three sets of AAs from various vintages do not have the additional inductor. I believe the 0.4 mH was added by by forum member John Albright to tame the midrange for those that like a bit reduced energy in that frequency spectrum. Cheap enough to try it with or without to see what your preference is.
