I think you did great as long as the receiver is in good shape. It probably needs to be serviced. Great pickup. I have a Pioneer sx-1010 myself. Yours is a little newer than mine.

Received another speaker from Klipsch today, a 1502, that I needed to complete my Jubilees.

I had already started to open it before I remembered to take some pictures. The shipper R&L Trucking was awesome and put it in my carport.

After the packaging was removed and I walked around it and that smile formed which has not gone away yet.

The music room remains a mess but most of it is back together.

 

I have reconfigured the Xilica as per @Chief bonehead and am working on gain structure. My first impression is Wow there is music in that bottom octave and it is good. Some of the bass is very nuanced and some is punchy fast while being very clean and having correct tone. I'm using a Crown amp rated at 1500 watts at 4 Ohms bridged.

 

I agree with @dtel that the china cabinet needs to be watched as I have already been reprimanded by my wife. Works like that vibrating football game we had as kids. The first music played was Gotthard's Domino Effect CD. I want to thank @MetropolisLakeOutfitters for putting up with me asking for one of these every couple of weeks and then actually getting one for me. I recommend them highly.

Yes, a lift gate. It was not easy as it we bigger than the gate itself. The driver was great just like the one that delivered the Jubilees from R&L.
