  1. Oh! I love test questions.... -6? right? My instinct said to go lower and I had been enjoying at -9 all evening. I think in his manual he says there is no right answer so to try different numbers. I will follow your suggestion and try -6 today. I was running the La Scala at 0 on the tweeter. I think my preference is to run a little hot. And my room is treated and more dead then alive sounding. And if I'm running external subs that could allow for lower attenuation as well? Thanks for helping me understand.
  2. dude they are running shoes! update.... So I never mentioned that I had only installed only one of the Kappa woofers and had the original in the other cabinet. Maybe I'm imagining it but the center image is so perfect now that both are installed. I'm into the first record. I guess i didn't think they were that different. Could that have an impact? on the over all sound stage?
  3. approaching the 24 hour mark.... Things have been much better. Like if i was at this point last night i probably would not have posted. the more aggressive toe in and time aligning the tweeter has helped. I'm sure i have all the problems @Chris A was talking about but at least they are familar sounding problems. The sound is much larger and i'm pretty sure I can improve on it.
  4. i if you look at my pictures the whole front wall, and both corners are covered in bass traps, and behind my listening position. I also have some at the first reflection points. They are from gik, maybe they use corning 703. I still prefer them pulled away from the front wall and side walls. if you are telling me that the sound stage and imaging will improve my moving them into the corners i'd be willing to try. I'm be more likely to take the swarm approach or a pair of dual OB subs. Maybe just because the other forums I read suggest that. IDK? i guess it all comes to to measuring to see what's best. thanks for the thorough explanation.
  5. thanks @ChrisA so much for taking the time to write all this. If i had belles and went to Lascala would a lot of what you said be the same? or if i went to a the bigger klipsch horn instead of the eliptrac 400? it sounds like I probably had a lot of these problems before, this is not just because i "upgraded? "And to your point the only way to tell is to take measurements before and after? The placement has made the biggest difference. They are basically in the same place as my La Scalas. i liked the idea of having a slightly less deep speaker to tuck them in a little but pulling them out from the walls give me more of the sound i'm used to. I have external subs. All of my Klipsch speakers i preferred away from the walls. I could never get rid of the boomyiness. And if i go active ALL of my problems go away?
  6. @Deang would my modified AAs from you work in this set up? just curious.
  7. just an subjective observation. As i pull the speakers out to more of the middle of the room i'm getting a much better center image. Also toeing them in seems to be helping. When i stand up it sounds more of what i'm used too. I'll call it better, maybe better than the sofa "sweet spot". And as i move are the room the sound does a sound better everywhere compared to my La Scala. BUT i do think what i had before sitting in the very narrow sweet spot was still more engaging. Mid horn is attenuated to 12 following AL's advice. following everyones advice..... i'm pulling out the measurement equipment.
  8. Thank you it does help. Some practical things to think about and try. I had a pair of Salk speakers that had a open back or closed back. The closed back to allow for more pin point imaging. Great point!
  9. Sorry, yes confusing. . It is at 6 for the mid and 0 for the tweeter, yes the 120. I was saying thats what i settled on when I went to sleep. I was enjoying it.. I have triend everything from 3 thru 12 for the mid. I went back to 6 on the mids for default.
  10. i went to sleep at 6, after trying 3-12. I went to sleep feeling much better about the sound.
  11. thats an option but i should give it more than 24 hours before i give up. yeah I am a "tinkerer" cars, trucks, home, food... whatever. Every time I modded the la scalas i like them better.
  12. yeah i got those mics and stand. years ago... to help with placement and room treatments. gave up and seemed to surivive with out it for the past 5 years
  13. Bells were ok not better than the Modified La Scalas so I transferred stuff over and they sounded better. Then tonight I got the horns. Lots of changes is 24 hours. I thought with my ALK ES crossovers *** helped with the time alignment?
  14. ok. I did this to one. Could something like this effect the time alignment? Even just doing one speaker, gave me some depth and center image.
