    • the woofers have been painted with  black dye ,  the dust caps have been replaced ,the black cement glue is not centered  -there are brad nails  all around the motorboard -      
    • My C20 will be paired with a PS modded and upgraded Accuphase P300 which is a great SS amplifier....when I upgrade them. I will be interested if a synergy will exist and if the tube rectified C20 will deliver some punch in the bass. One can hope....overall the pairing should deliver some magic. I have tube amps but I'm going to try the Accuphase first.
    • @JoeJoeThe3rd   Hey Joe,   I just bought the parasound a31 to pair with rf7iii. I was really nervous before reading your review. You see i had rf7ii's paired with emotiva dr3. That emotiva amp is much more powerful and really pushes my rf7ii's like i love. I was nervous about going down to 250 watts on the parasound. But if i read correctly, they can drive your rf7iii's to the moon! Good to hear. Cant wait for my new speakers and parasound come in so i can hear for myself. I was worried if I really could tell a difference from the ii's to the iii's and if the lower power rating wouldn't reach levels I was used to. 
    • You have connections for 4 speakers....why not. If it is a active sub use the output L&R
    • They have new woofers at a minimum.  Only people I see keeping Klipsch used prices down are the people here.  Let them go up in price. 
    • In theory you could use the pre-outs.  Either L or both L/R to use the on-board amplifier on the sub.  I can't promise it'll sound all that great though since I don't know enough about how the H/K handles that and if your Klipsch Sub has a high cut to filter out the upper frequencies.
    • Answer As low as possible, such that your system is just able to achieve the maximum volume you want to hear.   Background Your playback system will sound better if you set the "gains" correctly.   This is more accurately called optimizing "gain structure" of an audio system.   Well designed electrical audio components output two things, (a) noise, and (b) signal. Noise is bad and at a fixed and low level, the signal is the good thing, the music. The signal is not fixed in level and can be very low (near the noise) or very high - it can even be so high that it starts distorting. The goal is to run the signal as high as possible so that the distance between the noise and signal is greatest.   Example 1: Some people say you should set your amplifier gain at maximum for it to sound best. This is false because it forces you to turn down the downstream components, such as your preamp, to achieve the listening level you want. By turning the preamp signal down, you just pushed the music closer to the noise floor.   Example 2: Turn the amp gain way down so that you have to turn your downstream components at or near their maximums to hear a low sound level out of the loudspeakers. If that sounds distorted, turn down each downstream component until the distortion goes away, then turn them up again until you find the "just beginning" to distort volume settings. During normal listening, you should be close to those maximum volume settings. THE LAST STEP is to turn up your amp gains so that you get the sound volume you want out of your loudspeakers. This is the ideal.   Example 3: If you're into measuring things, this is how you optimize gain structure with little monetary investment.   God bless you and your precious family - Langston
