Dave MacKay Posted July 17, 2022 Share Posted July 17, 2022 The La Scala AL5 comes with risers that look to raise the speaker about 3” off the floor. The risers can be seen at about the 7:00 mark of this video: Having the riser seems to contravene rule #5 of PWK’s "8 Cardinal Points of Reproduction" (aka PWK’s 8 Rules😞 5. Freedom from cavities. The space under a speaker box formed by mounting it on legs can destroy the bottom octave of response and deteriorate the next two octaves. Did Klipsch find that risers don’t affect sound like legs so that risers are OK? I’ve been thinking about adding risers to my ’86 La Scalas to get them 3" to 6" off the floor (to avoid damage and also to raise the tweeters closer to ear height) but wanted to know the pros and cons before building them. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
