Yep, owned two pairs. He now only uses the big Russian 6c33 power tube, two each mono. Forty watts of single ended power, huge trannies but fire breathing dragons for sure. If you csn deal with the heat the 6c makes the best sounding tube amps I have owned. Owned the AM, Almarro and Another brand that evades me. His earlier amps proved a bit troublesome with poorly placed bias controls, resistors that would go poof. But Vlad always made good on any issue. His new amps use self bias I believe. They made Klipsch Heritage sound absolutly Huge - made PP and UL tube amps sound very small.
I'm not sure if it's me or you avguytx. But who cares. Everyone has the God-given right to their own opinion. And not everyone is going to agree with yours or mine it is what it is I have no hard feelings about it My father and my oldest son served in the air force so that we all can Express her feelings and thoughts I didn't take any offense to anything. if I lead anyone on to believe that it did I'm sorry. So let's just help this gentleman and get this fine product sold. I've had many carver amps and preamps. I like them a lot. I feel guilty for kidnapping his post and I apologize to him for it
My zip is 20817. Klipsch forum members price is $750 ($850 everywhere else).
These are absolutely great speakers and, although I personally don't like to listen loud, you are right in that they play clean at even extreme volumes.
I know many here will gladly drop $800 - $1000 on Cornwalls, or $1,000 - $1,500 for Lascalas, or $2,000 to $3,000 for Khorns, but maybe little uncertain about dropping $750 for DIY speaker - but I promise you - you will not be a disappointment. Bill Waslo is a very much respected designer in the DIY community. The crossover was well designed and provides a seamless integration between SEOS and the TD15.
This speaker has a performance/price ratio.
The JBL 2360 sounds better the higher the crossover point is. The drivers I have used include the JBL 2445 and 2446. These are readily available on eBay if you want to try a used one. Again, you need to specify whether this is a two-way or three-way system and whether the crossover is passive or active. You may have mentioned this but I got lost.
