New Klipsch logos. They kindly sent them 5 years ago, because one of the originals was missing.

Final set up in our living room (My wife points out that it sometimes seems to be more a studio than a living room...)

Thank you all for help and advice. In particular I would like to thank

AL K for this very great sounding universal network. This LS will be

keeped in original condition. But I will go on to look for a future

project concerning Altec 511b or ALK trachorns combined with some more

modern tweeter design and a corner horn.

Nice job. They look great.

I have 1990 LaScalas and a 1977 center channel LaScala. They sound slightly different, and I really like the sound of the 1977 a lot.

I'm sure yours sound excellent. Enjoy.

very nice.

husbands living room vs wife living room. I gave my wife a chance to decide what is "living room" stuff once. After we moved out everything but the TV, the room looked empty and non-functional. After we moved the non "living room" stuff back in, she never commented about the studio look again.

Yes, very nice indeed.

One thing that I noticed that would kind of suck if you really wanted to try something like Bob's CT125 tweeters is that it looks like the magnet of the K77 is almost right up against the top of the cabinet. Being that the magnet on the CT125 is larger, I'm not sure if it would fit in the stock location.

However, if you're keeping the LS's all original, then you wouldn't have a problem at all. [;)]

Nice work!

Thanks all of you for your participation and positive feedback.

Now after having spent time for intensive listening I would like to

point out that due to the new crossover even classical music with

strings is very much more a pleasure to listen to. Therefore the La

Scala is becoming more an allrounder than it was ever before.

I am very confident with the sound even if I am aware about limitations

(i.e. low bass performance, squaker, driver etc) . This does mean that

a future project is not urgently necessary for me to enjoy the

music. A new project would be more an adventure and the challenge to

take part on innovations and developments as dicussed on this excellent

forum.

I am following the new posts with a lot of interest, particularly about

planning to build new type of bass bin combined with trachorns. At this

moment I don´t need to "upgrade" to the vintage corner horn as it shows

other limitations in comparison where the La Scala benefits (i.e. upper

bass section). All in all it is currently a lot going on here, and may

be after a year or so some of you have first experiences with new

styles of horn designs.
