There have been so many requests for people to try to see what other AVSers have, and many who would like to audition speakers, that I started a frappr group for AVS speaker owners....

so please, join and post your setup, so that others can see and maybe one day audition and share experiences in your area:

http://www.frappr.com/avsers

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is NOT to turn into any debates or brand promoting or flaming wars, or it will be closed ASAP.

This is merely to provide a useful tool for folks to be able to see where others are in case they would like to audition something before buying or to share experiences and/or thoughts

I first saw this on the sub forum, then the Ascend forum, now here. I think adverstising rates on the Frappr site are going to be rising!

Personally, I don't mind if people advertise, as long as they are approved by the management and kept to a minimal. I would love to hear some of the experts and manufacturers give more detailed and more educated information on why their speakers or equipment is the must have! Not just tooting their horns but also comparing their equipment to other equipment. It would be cool to hear members state "yes, that is my experience or this equipment in no way even rivals what the advertisement says". For example, I started a thread on triads versus def techs. Paul from triad responded, but Chet from Definitive did not. I would love to hear their comparisons and contrasts of their products as educated audiophiles. That, along with, some of the more experienced audiophiles on this forum would make for some interesting reading. I remember in school, they called these debates, pro and con.

advertising and feedback are fine, but this thread is NOT for that purpose.....this is only for all AVSers to share (and post pics) of their particular setups, that is all. Sort of a Gallery with a map, of sorts.

if you need info or feedback on a particular item, post a thread, and you should get plenty of feedback

Main: Dynaudio Contour Special 25 -- mesmerizing!
Center: Dynaudio Contour SC -- matched perfectly with S 25's
Surround: PSB Alpha Mini -- low budget but get the job done
Subwoofer: REL Strata III -- most acoustically accurate under $2k



Dynaudio Special 25:

Cambridge Soundworks surround system in the family room to be replaced with Klipsch THX Ultra2 system soon (I hope). Talk about going from Ford Model T to Ferarri Testarossa in one giant leap!

Pair of Klipsch RCW-5s to be installed in dining room as my zone 2 speakers this weekend.

This isn't a home theater setup, but one for a computer, so excuse my little system.

Klipsch Promedia Ultra 5.1

dreaming of saving up and getting a real system sometime after college

Greetings. I am preparing to build a pair of subwoofers for my HT setup. I recently acquired a pair of Klipsch 18" speakers and I am considering building Sonosubs using these speakers. I am assuming a volume of 10-13 cu.ft, but I am unsure of number of ports, their legnth and diameter.
The 18" Klipsch speakers came from a commercial theater subwoofer. the speakers are 4 ohm, with a free air resonance of 26 hz.
Any and all suggestions are welcome!

Hi and welcome......but wrong forum! Goto the subwoofers forums and they will help you. Do a search on "sonosub" and/or under the name 'SteveCallas" and you will get plenty. lots of good info and HUGE sonosubs.

2-ch:
A very pretty pair of near-mint 1986 Klipsch Fortés in oiled walnut (fed by audio research tube stuff). After a cleanup and a couple of hand-rubbed coats of Fromby's oil, they seem to have a glow which comes from deep within.

HT:
Two Klipsch SF2s up front, two Klipsch SB2s in the back, one Klipsch SC1 as the center, one AR 8" sub (All fed by a Panasonic XR-55 digiamp, serving a panasonic AE700 lcd projector on a 96" diag. screen)

Office:
Two near-mint 1985 Infinity RS1000. (Fed by a 1978 Pioneer SX-680) These were my first 'decent' speakers, bought 'em when I was 15. Still have 'em. Use 'em every day.

In The Planning Stages:

1. Replacing the HT Klipsches with five or six new Klipsch Cornwall IIIs. This will have to wait 'till I get a place big enough to hold five Cornwalls (the front three will go behind a perforated acoustically-transparent movie screen) (note: cornwall III is in the works, hasn't been released to the public yet.. but yes, the Cornies are back after a near-20-year absense!)

2. Finding a pair of Infinity InfitiTesimal microspeakers for the office.. I kinda like the old RS1000 but want the InfiniTesimals for their uh, kawaii-factor (and EMIT tweeter )

I hope they do them justice in the new release! I've been ebay scanning La-Scala's. I'm a snob, I used to have an ugly old set of K-horns and insist on a folded horn if I get another set of Klipsch.

My current system isn't the best I've ever had but considering the state of my hearing it is good enough...

Yamaha RX-V1400
Carver AL-III's in the Front
Definitive C-1 Center
Definitive BP-2 Rears
Koss 12" Sub

I have my vernable JBL 4311's hooked up to the computer and my MP3's sound fine!
