  1. Hello all! I'm selling a few extra things I have sitting around. First off is a brand new in box pair of black RP-160M bookshelves. I got these as part of a bundle with some RF-7 II's and an RC-64 II but I already had a pair of them, so I don't really have a need. Asking $350. Can and will ship at buyer's expense. I also have a couple brand new in box WA-2 wireless subwoofer kits for use with the reference series subs. I bought a couple R-115sw's and they came with them but I prefer a wired connection. Asking $60 each, will ship at buyer's expense. Last but not least I have a pair of Cherry Polk (eww I know) RTi A9's that I ended up with as part of a trade and I really have no space for them. Plus, I'm sort of a Klipsch guy. No idea what these things are really worth, but MSRP looks to be $1500/pair. The previous owner either had them shipped or knocked them over, and unfortunately they have a couple dings in them. The worst by far is next to the middle woofer on one of the speakers, but all drivers are absolutely flawless. I have a couple pics to highlight the damage, luckily it's mostly covered by the grills. If there's any interest, I'd strongly prefer local pickup in Terre Haute, IN. Asking $600 for the pair.
  2. May be selling this original pair. I am the owner since day one. Great condition. Gauging interest. Thanks!
  3. http://emotivalounge.proboards.com/thread/48225/free-klipsch-cornwalls If anyone is local to Chuck in Portland Maine he is offering up free 1973 vertical cornwalls. No affiliation but I have been chatting with Chuck for years on the Emotiva forum. Awesome deal for someone local! Tim
  4. Hello, I have a set of vintage corner speakers that I would like to find out more information about. Can anyone tell me what they are and what the value might be on them. They are in very nice working condition. Thank you
  5. I have Polk Audio [LSiM 707 (as Front Main), LsiM 703 (Front High), LsiM 706 (Center), LsiM 702 F/X (Surround)] in my 7.2 systems. I would like to know if RP-140SA as atmos speakers matches above system (particularly for Lsim 707, note: its top surface is slightly curve not flat). Any your input will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

  9. Hello. I am in need of (2) Passive Subwoofers for a pair of KG4. Anyone have them besides Ebay? Thanks!
  10. So I have a Onkyo TX-SR706, I thought of upgrading to a TX-NR555 would that make a difference? I have R28F's and a R25C connected to it so far that's all.. or should I get R15M bookshelfs for my rear surrounds?
  11. Hello, I'm forced to change my amp in following "desktop" setup: notebook -> Audioquest Dragonfly v1.2 -> Wireworld Luna 7 -> Denon PMA-720 AE -> Oehlbach Bi-tech 4 -> Klipsch RB-81 II. My budget for amp is 550 € (610 $). Local dealers offer mostly Cambridge Audio, Marantz, NAD, Yamaha and Onkyo. Any recommendations? I'm also considering a DAC upgrade. Something like Cambridge Audio DAC Magic Plus would be nice. Do you think it's a good idea or should I look for more expensive amp with build-in DAC instead? One way or another I need to buy a USB cable... Any advices regarding a cable company with reasonable prices considering my budget and setup. As for genres. I'm listening to all of them
  12. Hello all members, This is my first topic and post on this forum, my english is a bit weak and rusty, so please be tolerant Recently i found white heresy speakers... seller didn't know what he was sellin' - to be honest i didn't know what i was buyin' too. So a bit akward situation. I bought them with Arcus TL 220 (set Arcus + Klipsch) - to be frank the 'little ones' - heresy... i paid for them almost nothing... I plugged them in into an oldschool Grundig A9000 (Marantz PM-80, with slightly bigger transformer), I was literally blown away with the sound quality, on everyday use i'm using Quadral Montan MK V - or maybe i should say i was using They are true legend speakers, that's for sure. In the past i had some JBL Studio monitor speakers... But to the point, Please help me, which heresy they are, i'm confused because they are first of all white inside and outside. The best part is i've never seen heresy with non-removal front grille, that's my biggest confusion. Crossover - Type C Lowrange - K-22 with red foam (alnico?) Midrange - K-55V (alnico?) Tweeter - K-77 (alnico?) They have non-removal grille - is that normal? No other information gathered, no backplate info, no nothing - they been repainted, at least outside. Please give me more info, they play phenomenal.

Only $69 a pair and free delivery through Newegg today for a pair of Klipsch RB-10 bookshelf speakers.
  14. Jim, Can you tell me what I have here? I acquired a really nice pair of old Klipsch speakers in huge ornate wooden cabinets. They look like they were used in an auditorium or something. They work great. Can you help me find out more about them like year mfg., age, model, purpose, value, rarity, collectability ? Here's a pdf link with a bunch of more pictures. http://montereymusicclub.com/klipsch/klipsch.pdf I'm being told they're home made cabinets and Klipsch never put out anything like this. They were definitely made by a cabinet shop, not home made. They're a matched set, the cabinet work is A1 and there's no evidence there was ever anything else inside them to think they used to be something else. Each of the back of the horns have a Klipsch tag; PK K-55-V / serial #10035 and #10041. There is a Klipsch id strip on the bottom edge of the electric board that says Type A. What would that mean? Who likely made these and is there any way to trace the history via the above serial numbers ? Thank you, Gary Smith
  15. Hello there. I recently purchased the Klipsch Reference Premier RP-280F speakers and wish to BI-AMP them to my Onkyo AV Reciever. TX-SR805. I purchased these in hopes of BI-AMPing to increase front power. The problem is the cabling. I originally was going to buy this Gotham SPK 8.25mm cable pair but they went out of stock. (see image) Does anyone have any other recommendations on cabling that would be equivalent or know a source for this cable other than Amazon? Thanks!
  16. Just to share my experience. I just replaced my K-77M driver-to-horn gasket with the "Garlock Style 3000 Blue-gard compressed non-asbestos" sheet gasketing (1/32 inch thickness). I could hear the improvement especially (at least to my hearing) it eliminates the high-end distortion that usually heard whenever I maximised the treble gain on my pre-amp (I'm using VTA-12 tubes pre amp). Does anybody has the same experience by replacing their K-77 driver-to-horn gaskets especially when there are NO aftermarket gaskets for K-77M driver-to-horn? My Cornwalll is the 1981 version with all original stocks and Bob Crites' B2 crossovers inside. Cheers, Jimmy
  17. Hello Gentlemen, I am seeking a pair of EMPTY Klipsch Cornwall Cabinets. Please contact me a 65AmpsLondon2 [AT] GMAIL DOT com. Thanks, bob
  18. I recently purchased (4) RF7II to replace my wides & fronts that are currently RF82II. These are in fully dedicated theater. I have RB61II as my surrounds and figured why not use the RF82II as surrounds. I was planning on putting them on a 20"'enclosure and tilt them slightly with a slanted isolation pad and this will put them at 62". My question is, will it be okay to tilt these slightly? I have never tilted a floor standing speaker. My reasoning is to have surrounds in same place as bookshelves where (62") and aimed slightly down above ear level. I can't put them on floor at ear level bacuse my 2nd row of seating is on 10" riser to see over 1st row that is on 6" riser. If I can't tilt I will mount them at 48" (middle tweeter) so tweeter is slightly (2") above 2nd row setting. And 4" above 1st row setting. So tilt or no tilt guys?

  20. Not Affiliated Got home from a brutal 12 hr shift at the factory. Running on about 22 hrs awake (fairly normal for a Wed/Thurs).See my wife off to work, decide to check Craigslist for some Forte's (cheap ones fit my budget). Find the following post: http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/ele/6045363894.html WHOA!!! Looks like Cornwall I for $450!!!! Slightly distressed, but right in my wheelhouse! Send an e- mail and get ready for bed. I pad dings, look at e- mail, and seller says may be seen before 1300 today, and there has been lots of interest. (Sorry, retired military) Call Muldoon and say I'm of my way. (Hope they fit in the Pimpmobile ((2000 Volvo S-700))) Hit the ATM. BOOGIE. Hit traffic onna 101. Schvitzin'. Get to Indian School Rd and 82nd street. Realize I don't have the address. Call Muldoon and ask for address. No answer. Turn on street on Google maps and park. Wait. Wait. Call again. No answer. Grind teeth. Wait. Guy walks up to car and sez "Are you the guy from Chandler? I just sold them. So many people called I didn't know who was who." Le Wah!!!! Oh, well I still have a lovely wife of > 30 yrs, who puts up with my varied manias and five children who are good citizens and six grandchildren who think that I'm OK. And a line on some Forte's I can afford. Le Wah. Any how there are still many components for any in the Phoenix metro area who may be interested, and if the price on the Cornwall speakers is an indication, there are bargains to be had. Happy Hunting JBCODD
  21. Hello, I've had an SW-12 since 1993/1994. It had been working very well until about two weeks ago. About two weeks ago, it started making two kinds of noises after it gets warmed up for a while, like 6 - 35 minutes. One kind of noise is static-like and the other kind is what I'd call crackling kind (could be the sound of clipping). These noises come on whether any source is connected or not. Until these noises come up, the subwoofer appears to work as good as before. Once these noises start, none of the controls (LEVEL, PHASE, and LOW PASS) has any aural effects on the noises as far as I can tell. I've plugged the power cord of the unit to many different wall outlets in my 2-story house and also with or without my computers, cable modem, router, etc. ON, and the problem shows up anywhere. So, I'm leaning towards ruling out things like ground loop or interference from Wii-fi, etc. as the cause of the problem. Even after the noises show up, the source material keeps getting reproduced as usual. I suspect the problem has something to do with overheating of the amplifier because they don't show up immediately after I turn the unit on. Also, I found one area of the top plate of the plastic cover that covers the amplifier has a sign of getting soft before, but I have no idea when it happened. I have connected the speaker leads inside to a regular speaker and the noises came on, so I'm ruling out the problem lies with the subwoofer's speaker unit. I have cleaned the pots for the controls fairly well, too, so they're probably not causing this problem either. I'm now concentrating on the amplifier. As a starter, I downloaded a service manual of SW-12 and SW-15. It's here: http://www.audiolabga.com/pdf/SW12-15 I.pdf Pages 15-17 are the schematic of SW-12. The top portion of Page 16 (Sheet 2 of the schematic) is the part I'm concentrating on [labeled DRIVER CKT filter driver bd.] now because the location of the cluster of 4 transistors (Q7, 8, 9, and 10) coincides with the previously softened area on the amplifier's plastic cover and also the area on the circuit board these four transistors lie on is not burned badly but dark brown. (Each of these transistors has its own little heatsink, so they are probably known to get hot, but maybe with my unit, they may be getting too hot to affect the performance of other components in the amplifier.) Now, I'm completely clueless when it comes to electronics. I'm hoping that someone here can help me with questions I have about the schematic and electronics in general. Tonight, I removed the amplifier and measured about a dozen resistors' values with the unit turned off without any source signal being fed to the amplifer. Since my multimeter can't test capacitors, I'm not going to mess with capacitors now. Obviously, I don't want to remove any components from the circuit board to take their measurements if I can avoid. As far as I could tell, there were no apparently damaged components or suspicious solder joints. Four resistors caught my attention, though: One is R45 1M. It's first resistor on the DRIVER CKT (on the left on the schematic). When I take a reading, the value is only about 109K. Here is my first set of questions: 1. Do I need to remove at least one end of R45 to get an accurate reading? 2. If it's faulty and I install a good one, would it make any noticeable difference in the circuit? Two other resistors which give different values than the specs' are R74 and R73. Their values should be 2.7K ohms according to the schematic and the parts list in the service manual. My meter reads about 1.42K ohms. Here's my second set of questions: 3. Do I need to remove at least one end of R74 and R73 to get their accurate readings? 4. If they're faulty and I install good ones, would they make any noticeable difference in the circuit? And here's my final question for tonight: 5. If you were tackling this problem, where would you start? Thank you in advance for reading this post and possibly offer some answers/advice/suggestions. Happy Listening! ------------------------------------------------------------- Additional comment: The main heatsink on the back of the amplifier never gets hot. It remain just mildly warm. On the other hand, the small heatsinks on the four transistors on DRIVER CKT get too hot to touch.

  24. Hi guys just like the title says... I'll entertain new or used. If you have another sub you have had great experience with that you are selling I will look at those too! Thanks everyone
  25. Hey everyone! So I just ordered a R-115sw and after doing some measurements it would probably work better for space issues if I had the R-112sw instead. If anyone has a R-112sw and wants to upgrade I would like to trade. If not, I'll do fine with the R-115sw and have to manage . Anyways, your used R-112sw + $250 for my brand new sealed R-115sw. I am located in Southern California. Thanks for reading!!
