  1. I've been so pleased with the performance of the RSW-15, I decided to purchase it's identical twin! I've passed on several RSW-15's that were out of state due to not wanting to ship this beast. What is the likelihood of finding another Maple RSW-15 locally? Guess about the same likelihood of me finding a single LaScala to use as a center channel. I purchased the sub from it's original owner. The twin is in excellent condition with only minor scratches on the top of the cabinet. Both woofers are in fantastic shape. The speaker grill had all 4 pegs broken and the previous owner used white glue to secure machine screws to the grill so the white shows through the grill. Will likely throw the grill away since I don't use them and it's in pretty rough shape. I haven't cranked them up yet as I need some suggestions regarding placement. I'll start a separate thread in the subwoofer section though.
  2. I have a SW12 that needs a woofer and a Sub 10 that needs a amplifier.The Sub 10's cabinet is great but the SW12 is fair. Free to anyone in the Cincinnati area. I will upload pics soon.
  3. So I have a pair of RF-42ii and a Dayton 1200 sub for my TV. I've been having huge trouble with receivers and have gone through 4 different ones until I finally ended up getting the Denon X2000. This may sound crazy but with the cheaper receiver I had - AVR E200 and AVR E300 on these same towers the sound was a lot more "open" and seemed to "surround me" this was most noticeable when listening to music. It was just more enjoyable listening to music. I don't know what the reason for this could be but right now it feels like when I listen to music as if someone has put a barrier in between the speakers and my ears. It's hard to explain the difference but it's a significant difference. Could this be down to EQ? I played around with the EQ and it did make it sound a little bit more "open" but it still doesn't get anywhere close to how it felt when listening with the E200/E300. E200 doesn't have audyysey mic, but E300 does. I used it for E300 and it sounded great. Question is less of which receiver is better quality but more of how do I get that same "room-filling" experience. I hope its simply down to room eq. Thanks a ton
  4. Hi, I have Polk rti10s, 8s, csi5, fxi5, r300 and r150 as well as bic h100 sub and velodyne cht10 for trade for klipsch speakers. I just want to try something new. I am located in tacoma, wa so would ideally be with someone local. Don't hesitate to make a cash offer too! Thanks!
  5. I have had these for awhile but never took them out of the box except to photo. Can provide photos on request but I am having trouble attaching to this post. Was going to use them in a new house but we never got approved to buy. Serious surround sound from these bad boys! They are black so they blend with any decor. Would like $350.00 but will concider offers. I live in the south metro area of the Twin Cities, Minnesota but will ship for actual shipping cost if your not local SOLD!
  6. My parents are roller skating rink operators and they are getting out of the business. We are selling all of our speakers, which are made by yours truly, Klipsch. We have 6 Lascalas and 2 MCMS. All are in great working condition!! No visible wear and tear on the casings of the speakers, just a bit of dust. We would like $7000.00. We are able to deliver, if close by or we would hire a trucking company. If you prefer a trucking company, the shipping price would be paid by you and if we can deliver for you, we will just add a flat rate of $300, as long as you are within 70 miles of the zip code 13021. If you would like more pictures, please let me know!!! Always Willing to Negotiate!!! Thanks!! Email: mafmusic12@yahoo.com Phone Number: 315-567-6868
  7. So I'm a total noob and need some assistance from the community here... I've got the most basic setup possible, however I still can't figure out how to maximize my speaker's potential! I've recently acquired a set of RB-35 bookshelf speakers and have set them up to my VSX-822 receiver. The receiver is a 5.1 channel, however I only have these two speakers and my dad took back his DOGG floor speakers... Anyways, I currently have them Bi-wired (at least I think so?) to the L and R on the receiver. There are still 3 open ports for a center and 2 surround... The back of the RB-35s have dual binding posts. I'm currently at work but found this picture on Google that is exactly how I have mine setup currently: [see attached] So am I best off with this setup? The single wire essentially comes from the L output of the receiver, and splits to both binding posts on the speaker... Same for the R speaker. Or should I run a separate wire from the L to the bottom or top binding post, then a separate wire from the L surround to the bottom or top binding post? I figured that would be too much power to the speaker and damage my goods... Any help would be greatly appreciated! I can take better pictures when I get home if needed! Thanks guys! BTW, I know I probably need more speakers in my setup... I'm saving up for a Klipsch center, but just graduated college and money is tight right now so speakers are last on my list unfortunately
  8. Hi Guys, I recently got into the world of klipsch with RF-42ii's and my parents were in the market for a surround sound system and I talked them into purchasing the RB51ii system with: RB51ii (fronts) RC52ii (center) RS42ii (surrounds) The only part that is remaining is the subwoofer. I haven't heard great things about the Klipsch SW110 - pros/cons? Also any other sub in the 500 dollar region that would be really good? I've heard a lot about the SVS Subs. Room is 400sqft and is a perfect square. It has marble flooring and a lot of hardwood/glass furniture. Also would the new klipsch reference subs be any good? KLIPSCH R10SW/R12SW? There are no reviews since I believe they are yet to be released? Thanks a ton guys
  9. Hi Guys, I just put together my first 2.1 system for my television with the Klipsch RF-42ii + Martin Logan Dynamo 300. It's my first ever sound system and I'm glad it was from the Klipsch reference line. They sound incredible! Alright, now to the tough part: I originally had a Denon AVR-E200 hooked up to these speakers (yes I know it's an incredible cheap receiver, but I initially picked it up to go with Pioneer SPFS52 towers which I got rid of cause the Klipsch blew me away) then I upgraded to an Onkyo TX-NR525. It seems that with this new receiver over long periods of listening my ears start to fatigue and hurt. I never experienced this with my Denon receiver and I listened to these speakers for hours on end with those. My question, is this all in my head or do Onkyo receivers really pronounce high frequencies which combined with the klipsch towers just cause ear fatigue? If you guys could recommend a good AVR to pair with these towers I would be grateful! Please keep in mind I have a tight budget, don't want to go over 300 USD. I like a nice warm sounding receiver, but wouldn't mind a nice neutral receiver. Feel free to let me know if its all in my head or if there is any real substance to what I am experiencing.
  10. So my son and I purchased Need for Speed tonight. The wife was heading to bed so that meant the RSW-15 would have to go night night as well since she is such a light sleeper. I switched the LaScalas to Full Range since the sub was turned off. You probably know how I have shared how unimpressed I've been with the bass response from the LaScalas. Tonight, my faith in their low frequency performance has been renewed! We had it at a descent level and I kept finding myself smiling from ear to ear like a little kid on Christmas morn. As the cars raced by and panned from speaker to speaker, the LaScalas continued to impress me with clarity and for the first time, in low frequency. It was so lifelike and immersive that both my son and I kept commenting how sweet it sounded even without the sub. There were a few LFE drops that the LaScalas handled wonderfully smooth without distortion albeit not the slam I get from the RSW-15. When the Army Helicopter pulls up from the ridge in the "Hooking Up" scene, the sound of the rotors of the copter was truly stunning. The more I listen to the LaScalas, the more I confirm that they are a HUGE upgrade from my previous RF-83 / RC-64.
  11. Dear all, Just to give an update... Finally my 1981 Cornwalls that I got from ebay are arrived. They came in extremely well packaged. They have travelled from US all the way down to here in the sandpit, almost half of the globe. Both are still in their original crossovers & drivers. Some scratches & dings on the veneer on both speaker but it's not so visible from seating position. I've been using 2-ch of RF62 for the last 6 years & these are my 1st Cornwalls ever. My set up are Denon 2809 receiver which goes through the VTA SP12 pre-amp & Latino's ST120 amp. Mostly I listen to jazz & classic using AppleTV (Flac), all using only 2-ch fronts. I placed those Cornwall right next to the wall on the side and around 60cm from the rear wall with toe-in about 45 deegrees to my listening position. Distance are around 3.5m between the CWs and 3m from each to my seating position. Compare to the RF62, at the same volume level & tone control set up, these Cornwall bring up more details, bass and wider sound stage. The bass is huge as to my taste and it's not boomy. The last two days i've been listening for at least 4-6 consecutive hours and it wasn't fatiguing. When i played Norah Jones' "Seven Year", the sounds of the hands on the strings can be heard in more details. Roberta Flack's voice was heard just like she sing up in front of me. The sound of Coltrane's sax also much more details & I could hear some of his breaths in between the passages. So far I love the way those 2 CWs sounding & I will do some upgrades on the crossover as well as the driver, but not in the near future. Thanks to all who gave me some helps on the info re: those "beasts". Warmest regards from the Sandpit, Jimmy PS: Herewith I attached pictures of the CWs.
  12. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to hear Jeff Hoak's LaScalas and they were beautiful sounding speakers. I had the chance to pick up a pair recently and had TOTALLY forgot how large they were. LOL. These have an absolutely beautiful finish. Other than a few small nicks near the bottom of the cabinets, they are in amazing condition for a 34 year old speaker. Everything looks original and they have AA Crossovers. Serial Numbers are Sequential. Based on the serial number, they are Vintage 1980. There weren't any stickers on the back so I'm not sure of the style these (not even sure what different variety LaScalas came in. I have no idea what finish these are in or if they were stained at one time. Feel free to help educate me on these because I know little to nothing about them. I've been listening to a variety of source material. Youtube and streaming and Airplay from my cell phone sound like garbage on them. Haha. I think it's because they are just very revealing? Once I hooked up Dave Matthews, Eagles and a few other concert DVD's, they sounded very nice. I've always heard guys speak of how the 3-way heritage speakers have better midrange. I've owned Forte II and Chorus II and I thought those were "heritage" but later found out they weren't part of the heritage series. I never felt they blew away my RF-83's in the midrange department. The LaScalas definitely have a better midrange though. That midrange horn is HUGE! The throat on the horn is 2ft deep. It's very smooth and vocals sound amazingly natural. Bass from the LaScalas in my HT is extremely weak. I even turned the crossover for my mains to Full and they were still weak. I've always heard guys say that about the LaScalas and there are a few that "claim" the LaScalas have plenty of bass. Sorry, that's just not the case in my room. Over the next week, I want to move them into my living room (wife has to leave for a few hours to do that). I want to see how bass sounds with hardwood floor and how they sound in a very open floorplan layout. No worries as long as you have a capable sub. My RSW-15 provided plenty of low end to allow the LaScalas to really shine. Movies sounded amazingly clear and precise. Very detailed. My next step is to do some A/B comparison between the LaScalas and the RF-83's to see how they directly compare to each other. Because the LaScalas do not have banana plugs, I have a set of speaker cables hooked up to the RF-83's and a second set hooked up to the LaScalas and will have to change the cables on the back of the amp. It should be another fun comparison. Here are some pics I took of them tonight.

  17. I have a few Klipsch KG speakers. I have been using them throughout my house. One 3.5 has a indentation on its cone. I prefer local pickup.
  18. Hello, I have a pair of RF52ii's for sale, they are in like new condition, I'm the original owner, they lived in a smoke free environment and have no blemishes or marks of any sort. I have the original boxes and packing materials so shipping is no problem! I just moved and they are still boxed, so I don't have images right now, but can unbox them if images are requested. They are currently located in Lexington, KY and could be picked up or easily shipped directly to you. They are about 40lbs each in their boxes and will ship from 40515. Asking price is $375, these speakers are like new condition. I also have a RC-52II Center channel speaker for sale for $225
  19. I purchased the Klipsch S4i Rugged Edition about 6 months ago, and they have quickly become my favorite pair of earphones ever. However, I have recently lost the eartips that fit me best. Can you guys tell me where I can get replacement ear tips in India? Thanks a bunch! Mathew
  20. One owner, excellent condition RF52's, with the original shipping boxes! I cannot find any marks or blemishes on any of the surfaces of these speakers, they are in outstanding condition. These are not RF52II's. These are the original, older and slightly more affordable RF's. I used these as surrounds and ended up with RF52's as mains, they are nearly identical, I can tell no sonic differences, and aesthetics are incredibly minor. I bought the speakers as I had the money and they upgraded the line before I had completed the system! I have the original boxes and packaging materials so they will be safe to ship - buyer pays shipping. I am currently in Winston-Salem, NC, however I will be moving in a few months to Lexington, KY and making some what regular trips up there - if that influences any one's purchasing decisions. Click here for more images Please let me know if you have any questions! These were originally $329 Each - a total of $658 Retail. Buy the pair for $300!

I will ship in the USA, but you will pay the paypal fees. tia, Ron
  22. I am putting together my first ever stereo system (turntable, speakers, receiver), and I recently purchased a pair of vintage 1980 Klipsch Heresy HWL speakers. My dad had a similar pair when I was younger, so I purchased them partly for nostalgia and sentimental reasons. My earliest musical listening experiences were through Klipsch. They had a tremendous impact on me and are a huge reason why I'm a musician today. My next step is getting a tubed receiver. All the research I've done on the vintage Heresy speakers suggest that the Heresys really sing through tubed instead of solid state, as that is what they were designed for. They also recommend getting a receiver or amp with a mid level controller. So far, I've been looking at Marantz (specifically the 2270 and 2275 model), Mcintosh, and Fischer. However, I'm also trying not to break the bank and am open to other suggestions. I will only be playing vinyl through this set-up. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions, recommendations, or advice. I'm brand new to this! Thanks!
  23. Hello, I am new to the Klipsch community and I have been listening to Klipsch speakers my whole life, love them, and I have something I would like to share with everyone so here is my story. About two years ago I was online looking for a pair of Klipsch speakers. I wanted a pair of La scala or Cornwalls but I didn't have a lot of money at the time and just wanted see what was out there and what the going prices were. Then I found a listing for a pair of Cornwalls that were pretty rough looking and had blown speakers but they were only $500 and for some reason I had to have them, so I bought them. I live in Dayton Ohio and the seller lived in Chicago. He wouldn't ship them so I rented a SUV and headed to the windy city. When I got to the sellers house he greated me and we talked for a bit (really good guy, Klipsch nut) and then he said, well let me show you your speakers. When I turned the corner and saw them the first thing I thought was, I made a huge mistake and it's to late to turn back now. The cabinets looked like they had never been cleaned, covered with a dark film and dirt. The grills were both broken and there were some pretty deep scratches. This guys cat was sleeping inside one of the cabinets and had been using them as a cat scratcher too, they were in bad shape. He helped me load them up and I headed home thinking all the way, I screwed up big time. When I got to my home there were two of my buddies waiting on me to help me unload them and take them in the house. Man did they give me a hard time, laughing and ribbing me about how bad they looked and, You rented a SUV and drove all that way and paid $500 for these, and to make things worse we unscrewed the back panels and they had Radio Shack woofers in them. Everything else was there and all original but Radio Shack woofers, Really. After making the drive there and back and getting razzed about how bad they looked and the RS woofers it was time for a beer and let that day go. The next morning I started working on my diamonds in the rough, taking everything out of them (the RS woofers went right in the trash) and started to clean them up. They had the correct crossovers, tweeters, horns, drivers so things were starting to look up. I started wiping the cabinets down with some Murrphys oil soap in warm water but this stuff wasn't coming off. After getting them as clean as I could they still looked a little dark. I could start to see the gain and the real color of the wood starting to come out but I didn't know what kind of wood it was. It didn't look like any finish on a Klipsch speaker that I had ever seen. I got some very fine sand paper and started sanding them down very lightly, taking my time and being very careful not to go to deep. As I was sanding I suddenly realized these were something different, something very different, and I was right. After doing some research on Klipsch web site I knew I had found some diamonds in the rough and it was all well worth it. The cabinets have consecutive serial numbers and were made in 1973. They are made with Zebra wood and according to Klipsch they are very rare. Only a few pairs were ever made using this type of wood and Klipsch never used it again. In 1973 a lot of groups were protesting about the destruction of the rain forrest and all the trees being cut down. Zebra wood comes from the rain forrest and Klipsch wanted to avoid any bad publisity for importing this exotic type of wood so they stopped using it before they really even started to. I don't know how many they made but I have never seen a pair like it and probably never will. I was able to find a nice clean pair of the correct 15" K-33E woofers along with replacing all the diaphragms in the K-55 and K-77 drivers. I sent the crossovers to Bob Crites to replace the old capacitors and make sure everything was up to spec. I went to a local wood working/ cabinet shop and talked to them about what would be the best way to refinish the cabinets and make that zebra wood pop. They were very helpful and told me what to do and what not to do. It has taken some time and money but it was well worth it. In the sun light the zebra wood looks awesome, very detailed lines and color running through the grain, sometimes I just stand there and look at them. After I got them back together and started listening to them on my 10wpc set tube amp I was amazed. Nothing sounds like a Cornwall powered by a single ended tube amp and nothing looks this good either. So that's my little story about how my diamonds in the rough became to be the crown jewels. I have some pictures of the whole process they went though and I just wanted to share them with everyone. Let me know what you think and thanks for taking the time to read my post.
