      Welcome to the newly upgraded Klipsch Forums! If you have been here before 8/1/16, you'll notice a facelift. Not to worry - your posts, messages, gallery images, etc are all intact. There are many new and upgraded features to the forums. We'll be posting an updated FAQ soon. In the meantime, feel free to ask any questions in the new Klipsch Q&A section. NOTE: The search index is still being re-built, so searching and activity feeds may not be 100% complete in results yet.

Not sure what's wrong but I'm following your written instructions exactly and this either randomly works or not depending on what I'm searching for. I just did a search within this topic for the word "upper" since I knew it was in here and yes...it found it. I then did a search for the word "mean" since I knew it was in Amy's reply a few posts up and it found nothing. More often than not, it finds nothing. What am I doing wrong? I've searched for "rf-82", "RF", "SC" and a few other common ones like this and the search comes up empty. Can you help me out?

Thanks!

Not sure what's wrong

I have the same experience when searching. I do believe all the old posts are there, but where??

My PC remembers all of my old searches , they auto drop down as I type in the search box. The new system will not find most if any of them. I do remember the results, but it means I can't find similar old posts.

Now I'm not saying I want to live in the past, as there really is only the moment but as in other Forums it is practice to search first. Many of the questions or topics have been gone over before. For interest I have !975 "Heritage" LaScala, funny it was new when it was shipped to me, anyway just about every thing has been covered about it in the past.

So I type in [LaScala] in the search box - 4 pages of previous posts come up the oldest is 19 Aug 2013.

Search for [K33E] a woofer in many Klipsch loudspeakers, I get 5 pages of past posts the oldest is 17 Sep 2006.

So How to search archives now...? chris

Do not know for certain but, maybe the results you are after is in the old forum. You might try that.

In this new forum, I click klipsch.com(top left) and enter the the product description on that page...example: RF5 and enter on the keyboard. Usually I get a page with the RF5 and if a II version, I get that too on the same or other page.

Wow, did a heresy search there and enter and all 3 models came up...

Well, I just did an old forum view and it is limited in scope...so much for that idea. Neat stuff though...

I did a recent search using the "lascala riser" and found 3 pages on this main page new forum search using "all forums"as my parameter. Dating way back.

Best Answer to what? Original question not answered, just how to search now.

How can we get searches of "archives" older posts? Or is this feature lost? There are thousands of old posts and lots of good info somewhere.

I just did an old forum view

How can I do an old forum view? thanks.......... chris

The search engine in the new forums is something I want to fix soon. It's not optimal at the moment. For some reason, some things just don't come up in search results. It's a problem with the default search engine. There is supposedly a solution, but I've not had a chance to really implement. Hopefully soon I can.

Thanks

Chad thanks for that info, I feel if you know about this we will be happy with the results, as everything you have done here is always spot on! I just didn't want to have all the old info lost. Not really that important on a scale of 1 to 10, but as you noticed us Klipsch lovers are a picky bunch!

Have a great New Year, both to you and to all the fine folks at Klipsch.

Thanks for looking into this Chad. There is a massive amount of information within this site so I use the search function a lot! It has saved me countless hours of aggravation and "trial and error" time while setting up my system or fixing nagging technical issues so it's frustrating when the search function is not as "intuitive" as it was before.
