  1. Ok, so it´s been delivered... but. - I haven´t connected it yet, only measured ohms, the drivers seem to be ok, high setting gives about 9 ohms, low is about 5. But the cabinet needs a rebuild, all four corners are banged up, badly, even the MDF took a beating. It looked ok on the Ebay pictures, so my guess is our postal service dropped it a few good times. Packaging wasn´t enough to handle 20 kilos of speaker i guess, i feared as much without original boxing.

    Gonna hook them up tomorow and see if the drivers are good. Also pictures tomorow.

    On the plus-side, the cable i got to connect the 1.5s and the SW looks pretty sharp.

    This will be a bigger project than i thought.

  2. @Peter P. In another thread You mentioned:

     

    "If I were to connect the kg sw to the 2nd channel outputs, I would have even greater bass because the Heresy II's would continue to run full-range, ADDING to the sub's output."

     

    Have You run this option or are you satified with connecting the SW like Klipsch intended?

  3. Yes Sir, report coming up, Sir!!

    Your input is very much appreciated! Since i couldn´t audition the sub i´m a little worried. As per the owner it was used until rencently, but you never know... I´ll know more next week.

  4. So i did it, pulled the trigger and bought the thing. Even got a little discount, paid 125€, shipping included. Curious in what shape the SW will arrive here and what verneer is under that black finish...

    A question to owners like @Peter P., is there a way to see if booth woofers are ok, without breaking the enclosure open?

    Take a look at this finish. It was originally black... Sanding and staining can bring it to this. Looks amazing. 

    If you buy something like this new, you'll pay way more. 

    The one in the eBay offer is just plain black - now, but that is one of the points that tempts me to buy it. I saw that post´s pictures and others on the net. some really beautifull sw bass-bins out there.

    PeterP, and I and others talked about this before in the past here. Try a search of the forum may yield more. Glad he chimed in.

    Unless someone vetoed here, would go with it.

    Only downside Could see is you unhappy for a reason.

    Upside is, you could sell it locally.

    Another upside is you would now have bass. Owned a pair of 1.5 so yeah.

    Did that too, for example:

     

    Call me selfish, but maybe  i wanted some more recent input, but You´re right of course.

    So far thumbs-up only, reasuring.

    I've never heard the KG-SW but a good friend of mine uses an SW-8 sub with KG-2's for his TV set up and that little sub really does help to fill them in so worth it IMO. You're obviously not going to get Jurassic Park bass out of it but maybe closer to a full sized set of towers?  

    Thanks, but it was not my intention to go jurassic anyway. ^^ It´s more like lessening the bass-load on the 1.5.

    There's extra wiring involved; you run your speaker outputs into the kg sw, then run wires from the kg sw to your regular speakers; it has a built-in, fixed high pass filter.

    In fact i ran my 1.5s like that before with the Yamaha, so i know about the cables, i can stow those away under the desk.

    I´ll wait a little longer, but the feedback so far lets me think that i might pull the trigger on this one.

  8. I´ve been looking at said KG SW on ebay for some weeks now and i have some questions to once/still owners.

     

    I would team up that sube with my KG 1.5s and a Yamaha A-S201. Does that sound like a worthwhile idea?

    Another idea would be to use it with my Heresys, once those are done, but i also have a Yamaha active sub i was planing to use for the Hs.

    To be honest, maybe i´m just intriuged by the fact that the SW belongs to the KG line, looking at the pictures it leaves a good impression and it´s fairly cheap, sub and shipping about 160€.

     

    So, what are Your opinions?

  9. Among my friends, i am the only one who has a real stereo set-up, let alone HT. Either they don´t have the space or it´s  homes where music is only a background and not actively listened to. Everybody has an Amazon-, Netflix- etc. account, but watches on their laptops or phones...

    Maybe it´s an era of music & movies on the go? Often i hear opinions like: "It´s just music, why all the hussle...". or "Too exppensive." or "Too complicated.". Are we geeks? I mean we are, but, we are in the age of "Fast". I´m rummagin´...

    Yeah André ..it´s a wonderful singer- songwriter Album.  It´s called " Chants from another Place " by Jonathan Hultén . He was front man of the " death metal band " Tribulation from Sweden. It´s his first Solo Project. Love it !!!

    I googled him too right away and i thought "death metal"? This is so very different, he seems to be very versatile.
