I didn't see any safety cables.  I guess it would be a pretty short cable.

Na, it's OK, it's only him and his wife at home most of the time, the odds of it falling on one of them are slim. :o

Nobody asked Chiefbone head mdf or plywood, if ply, baltic birch (the real stuff) or Gerogia Pacific. 

 

Zildjian?

 

Evans or Remo?

 

What caps he went with on his steep slope "audiophile" networks.

 

Frankly, the answers to these questions are so obvious that the Head Chiefbone should not feel obligated to even recognize this inquiry.  He has more important things to do.....I think.

We were at his house for days, only one day to hang the speakers. It took the rest of the time to get them painted white from black and dried, including brackets, many coats. Sprayed them on his back porch under the roof. Because it rains almost everyday around Palm Beach around 3 or so, and hot and humid

 

. I still can't believe I hauled an air compressor and paint gun 1/3rd the way across the country. It was 4 362's painted the other set will not be hung but will be rears later.

A. Zildjian was the standard back in the day.  It would take a great live demo to get me into any other cymbal.

They don't have a union for that.

 

Although there are plenty of journeyman bullshitters.

 

You are a straight talker.  You could build a house out of a stick.

He's listening to Donna Summer right with a left/right comperator trying to narrow down his picks.

I'm using the CW IIIs along with a Heresy III (center channel) in a home theater. I am finding the timbre match excellent and the front soundstage seamless. I'm wondering if the match between the Heresy III and the Cornwall IV will be as good. And if not, is one relegated to going to three CW IVs if one wants a seamless front stage?

 

That's interesting because I also am running two Cornwall IIIs, one Heresy III in my home theater in my living room. And I'm also running two Paradigm X15 subs with an Anthem AVM 60 pre-amp and Monolith 5 amp. I run them in "all channels" mode right now, but I haven't set up my Anthem ARC room correction yet. I still absolutely love the way everything sounds!!

 

The funny thing is that it seems like music sounds even better when I have all channels on compared to just 2-channel stereo. Maybe it's just because I am used to listening to music like that now, but it still sounds amazing!!

Yes but I have tried hard to keep the same spectral balance in the paul’s heritage models as he likes them. So a cw4 would fit well with a h3 or vice versa. There some physics/acoustic stuff that can’t be over come but they sound like a family of sound products. 

 

 

In October you will be able to ask many questions (and maybe even get some answered) like the one's asked in this thread over the last few days.

Why did Klipsch ever stop Chorus production?

In 1996 for the KLF-30. The market trend was pushing hard for speakers with a smaller footprint. Tall narrow deep speakers were in vogue. Electronics were coming standard with subwoofer outputs. Multi channel at home was a finally a real thing. Big old box speakers seemed very old fashioned. Kind of like how old muscle cars were getting dumped at the same time. LOL.

I bought my Chorus II's in about 1994. The instant I heard the sound coming from them I knew. I compared them side by side with the Forte's and, to me, the Chorus' were significantly better. I compared them to speakers costing 3 and 4 times as much and nothing was even close. I had to sell them in the early 2000's due to moving into a smaller place. Now I just don't have the room for them and have the KLF10's. I guess we were looking for smaller footprints after all... I wish Klipsch would have continued development of the Chorus instead of the Forte.
