  1. In guitar amp world, this means you have used the wrong fuse, which lets several things fry.
  2. Play this at low volume while you sleep. I actually connect it to a rodin coil for vibrations only. It's more powerful than melatonin as far as sleep goes, but your dreams will amuse you.
  3. I've only had relatively brief encounters with loudness. I played guitar in several bands over the years. Still do. At 60, and relatively new to horn speakers and tube amps, I recently started sleeping with ear plugs. Every little sound bugs me. Apparently I'm hearing more.

  5. I've done lots of mods for my vintage La Scalas, and I can tell you from experience, you'll get more satisfactory and immediate results from higher quality power and speaker cable with a new speaker like your Cornwall IVs. After all the great mods to my crossovers, drivers, and internal wiring, I still get a nice surprise with good power and speaker cables. Try this DIY high end cable. It's actually a very low cost experiment.
  6. Definitely a scam. The 'seller' has posted the ad several times.
  7. The seller feedback is 2. Looks scammy.

  9. My AA experiments revealed the same. Materials do make a sonic difference. I'm relatively new to the tube amp/horn speaker scenario, so I take every tweak I can get since I have no treble, mid, bass, presence, gain... or all those nice eq tricks I had in my solid state days.
  10. Used prices are definitely coming down. I bought really nice Heresys in July 2021 for $450. These need a little work by most standards.
  11. Not mine, but maybe a good deal for one of you. https://delaware.craigslist.org/ele/d/dover-klipsch-heresy-br/7515532022.html
  12. No. Just one of many ads I run across.

  14. I haven't plugged it in yet, but I just got the Quicksilver line stage preamp: http://quicksilveraudio.com/products/rc-line-stage-preamp/
  15. Very nice mods. Of course, the ultimate mod would be a new pair of Forte IVs.
