  1. Past hour
  2. I probably won't process and post until after the fact, but I saw a request to create a centralized thread for folks to dump photos. So @TasDom, here go you. @CECAA850, can it be pinned?
  3. Welcome dlee, $300-$1000 based on their condition. To get a more accurate value please post pictures of the speakers. Front, with and without grills, sides, tops and rears. If they have riser bases their condition would also be helpful. Your location is also good in case there is an interested buyer here.
  4. I did not post the picture.... but I like the coffee pot...
  5. Yesterday
  6. I am sell my Cornwall II's, bought in 1986. They are the black finish sound awesome and good condition. Any suggestions on their worth?
  7. Privileged turd is still a turd... Dave

    I've got an "original" recording of Apollo 11 blasting off back in 1969. Dad took myself and the son of another friend of his down to watch it. Took a little hand-held portable cassette player with us and Dad played (the dramatic) TV interviewer a bit.... None the less, some idiot (that would be me!) turned it on during lift-off and don't you know.... it picked up the sound! Decades later, Dad called, said he was cleaning out some closets and sending me some stuff.....that was in there. Knowing how old it was, I didn't try anything with it.....I immediately sent it to someone (forget who) who was into tape restoration (or so he said) None the less.... sent it out and they copied it over to a CD so now, I have that recording in digital format....It's a WMA file If you can get past the giddy 9 year old who's making a fool of himself as 9 year olds might do (ahem, that would be me again).... it's pretty damn impressive to hear that thing take off. It will literally shake your room. Feel free to crank it up for me! I'm trying to upload it but, it's a 12 meg file.... I'm doubtful that it will work. I can email it perhaps (?) Oh, and if you can get past the gigging 9 year old, there is more on the tape..... a VERY exciting pool game... you can hear someone (ahem, probably me) hitting the cue-ball, it hits something else. Don't recall if you can hear the pockets or not (had ball return) and you hear some 9 year old chatter. Again, I don't recall what BUT, it will clearly put you to sleep. Clearly I was not very creative in my recording skills!! In the background??? You can hear my very first stereo playing! It's not blaring but it was a Yorx or something like that. Had some Superscope speakers that were 2-way. BUT, I went to Radio Shack and as an experiment, bought a midrange driver.....drilled a hole in the cabinet & screwed it in. I then went to that funny batch of wires inside it....took two of the wires (probably those going to the existing tweeter) and as I recall, snipped them and added this one in, over & above the existing. That was my attempt at converting this 2-way Superscope speaker into a 3-way....after all, MORE ways was better than fewer ways! The music playing in the background? as I recall, was In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. Yeah, at 9 years old, I was already corrupted!! Looking like this file is going to take? I typed above while it was evidently uploading. Damn, looks like it worked??~!!!!! Apollo_11.wma
  10. If I recall correctly, Mr Delgado also stated that these would be a suitable replacement for the Chorus II passive as well. 👍
  11. Just to clarify the clarification the new parts from Klipsch do "look" different but they are the same part number and most importantly are mechanically the same, this has been verified by the Chief himself so the new parts will more than just "work" they are Klipsch approved factory replacement parts just to be clear that is all thanks. 😶
  12. We're here waitin onya.
  13. Can one of you folks that are fortunate enough to attend, please start an official Pilgrimage picture thread? Thanks!
  14. That's an understatement.
  15. the reason that Alnico drives can lose magnetic charge is because of heat build up this can occur most often by pro use at very high play levels. If you are concerned you could always send the drivers to Great Plains Audio who are Altec and they can recharge your woofer to as new condition. If your drivers have not suffered hard use they may be fine. If they sound good to you why worry? You might rather pend the money on a pair of subs. Be careful while visiting the Altec site as those drivers can lead you down the path to the dark side of the Lansing Heritage as drivers designed by James B. Lansing will steal you away from the Klipsch light in which you are basking at the moment, such is their tremendous design and build quality. https://greatplainsaudio.com/
  16. The diaphragms ended up being phenolic and not ti. I originally had a pair of Forte I's and replaced them with these Forte II's that had been re worked with a nice veneer, crites ti tweeters, crossovers supposedly redone by crites, and updated mid diphragms.(thought I was told crites ti, but have learned there aren't crite ti updates for the mid) For some reason, the Forte II's don't sound near as good as the original Forte's to me using same location and gear. They sound much harsher and not near as natural. I changed back to the stock tweeter and it improved it but not near enough. But this deserves a thread of its own......
  17. Does Guitar Center or another music store stock these? I would like to pick one up.

    To late I own the xti's. There is plenty there to satisfy my needs and this setup does not require much power.
  19. Woot! Woot! Babadono (Eric) and wife coming by when they get to the airport to pick me up for dinner, so getting to kickoff the events early! Looking forward to the dedication tomorrow evening and all the rest to follow. The work at the new archive building and KMAH by Jim Hunter and the rest is incredible. If you don't make the dedication of the archive make sure you see it before the weekend is out, it's going to be awesome. Travel safe. Looking forward to seeing you all. May cook a pot of Texas Red from scratch for Saturday afternoon snacks, especially if Carl follows through to join me with his martinis. My chili and his martinis will be a dangerous pairing... Dave
  20. you need 3 more hands. oldtimer is right. It looks thin and overcooked. That's what cowboy/boiled coffee looks like when the grounds are dead.
  21. Howdy. I'm adding another photo that should show the port better than in the photo I initially posted. These speakers are in Buffalo NY. I have not as yet dealt with the cost of proper packaging nor determining ship weight. First I was endeavoring to receive basic info such as ballpark value and where to market them. Then relay that info to the musician and let him decide where to go from there. Suspect, if you guys think someone on this site will be interested, he will OK me to market them on this forum. Any questions please let me know. Much thanks for the comments to date.

  23. Thanks avguytx. You did a very impressive job on your Belle Clones. I love the ribbon mahogany. And finallygotmyheresi, thank you for your kind words. The midhorn opening trim is because I changed plans and had to fill in the cut out I did for the stock K53 K701 horn flange when I switched to the K 700 rear mount horn. It worked out but I created more work for myself. I still have to paint the screw heads bronze to match Dave A's MAHL lenses that I painted satin bronze. Still debating if I should darken in his engraved trim lines. The devil is in the details. 😉
  24. Both are places few people care to spend too much time in.
  25. Good Luck tonight...... Go Islanders!!! Yes, Yes, YES
