Have not. And the similarities - ?

I don't remember anything "wild" except maybe when in the pouring rain almost going up the exit from I 30. We were blessed that no one was exiting at the exact same time. Or that the State Troopers weren't checking us out:). Thanks for the ride Carl. I did take the bus on Friday but thought Carl might enjoy a rider on Saturday after shaking Martinis ALL DAY LONG.

The wall of water that came from the sky right at that time was unbelievable.  It reminded me of S.E. TX.

That would actually have been better.  I would have seen their lights and known it was the exit.  You sure couldn't see any street signs.

That's my wife sitting patiently doing her knitting, letting me roam about doing the "forum" thing. Same wife that has patiently watched as Cornwalls, Belles, Heresys, LaScalla, LaScalla again, Quartets, RB75, KHorn and now Jubilee roll in and out of our house. She has that same look when I show her a picture of the next speaker soon to roll in. She just looks up and rolls her eyes. And lets not talk about the dozens of amps/preamps. Now explaining the semi truck pulling in with a crated 1502 to be centered between the Jubilees just Might be another story. Just maybe --- but I bet not. An angel she is ----

It's a beautiful day when you have a wife that supports you in your hobbies isn't it? Mine does to. Man, you've gone through a ton  of speakers. Curious what was/is her favorite speaker?

Not unexpected but the Jubilees now sit on top for. And again for me I've always enjoyed LaScalla. The KHorns were already modified when I bought them so I have no experience with stock K's in my room.

I believe Linda's favorites were Cornwalls.

Thanks. It's always interesting to hear of your significant other take. Women see color differently then men too. While I may "see" a type of blue she'll say "no honey that's grey". Once I study it 10/10 times she's right. I know what I hear and luckily my wife and I track pretty close when it comes to the sound of receivers & speakers. 

 

Cheers.

Where are the KLF 30?

Klipsch should bring back the Bad *** 3-Way KLF 30 series with the new speaker technology. Black Oak. They would sell. I would buy. 

 

What happened to 3-way? Everything I see from Klipsch is 2-way. 

 

This is would be cool too. 

1 - 15 inch Woofer

1 - Mid Range Horn

1 - Tweeter Horn

Black Oak/Black Cover

 

Why doesn't Klipsch make speakers like this.
