JEM Performance Audio...my experience!


Recommended Posts

Last Saturday night, I called the number, not expecting an answer, just wanted to add to my address book.

 

Jim answered, coached my through taking pictures of my 1980 La Scala Tweeters, Squawkers, & AA Networks.

Got around to pulling the AA crossovers, and shipped to him last Tuesday.

 

He rec’d them on Friday.

 

Called tonight. He through, and ready to ship back.

 

Invoiced me on PayPal for a trivial amount, including return shipping, with insurance, via FedEx, $159.57.

Expecting a return to Klipsch specs, Vs. Bob Crites’ specs.

 

May they both R.i.P.

 

Prolly this Veteran Armor Crewman won’t be able to tell the differ...

Thank you for your service. Were you at Ft. Hood?

They won't be to Klipsch specs unless you use similar oil can capacitor's.  Otherwise it is BS.


Be interested to see what Roy Delgado has to say about that. @Chief bonehead

 

However, a member here, Dave1291, just sold me an original pair, complete with non leaking oil cans. Thanks, Dave!

From JEM:

 

"The capacitors I sell are approved by Klipsch engineering.  I met personally with Roy Delgado over a year ago and discussed Klipsch crossovers in depth.  Roy took the time to explain the differences in capacitor design and how they react in a network.  My desire was to keep the vintage Klipsch models operating as PWK designed them to sound."

 

"Keep in mind my service only repairs Klipsch networks to factory specifications (using) Klipsch approved parts."

 

From the Chief himself:

 

"It’s pretty simple and it’s not very complicated.  It’s just not “Roy” endorsing JEM, it Klipsch."

 

 "It’s about the WHOLE network and voltage transfer curves"

 

Seems convincing enough to me, would likely try them out when the time comes.

How did those "non leaking cans" measure for ESR?

do you have someone who can install one of the sets without you knowing what set you are listening to and then install the other set and compare.


Way yonder too much trouble.
