Welcome 98_1LE,

Fellow old school Klipsch owner here. That speaker system must rock with them all being identical around the room. I would love to here them. Have you ever thought of upgrading the crossovers in them or swaping out the tweeter diaphragms? I did that in my Forte IIs and was amazed at the difference in SQ.

Anyway glad you joined the WYSC club and thanks for sharing.

Nice to see a fellow Klipsch owner, new or old. Good looking speakers and I bet they sound amazing. I also love the full tower approach. Don't see that too much anymore. Wish I could go back to that.

Welcome aboard.

Hi PC hope everything is going good with you since I have not talked to you in awhile. If you don't have plans for this weekend why don't you bring your van down by the river (hehe) and come sit a spell at my place?

I still have cable cleanup to do, which won't happen until next week when UPS gets a monoprice order here, but I got the new switch and NAS roughed in today.



This is what the network now looks like:


I have only had it a few hours but am impressed with the Netgear RDNU4000 NAS. I was tempted by the faster Synology, but had read of several problems with them.

Good setup and welcome to the forum, a wealth of knowledge.

Thanks, I am almost done with this project.

Just need to find something to nail/clamp down the power cables in the corner, and would like to find some type of clamshall (like a flat hair thingie) to hold the cables running between the switch and router flat against the wall.

EDIT: Pics moved to OP.

I sold the 1LE long ago. Someone offered me what I had paid for it nearly 3 years earlier and knew I had autocrossed and ran it at open track events, so it just seemed like a "no brainer". I sometimes regret selling it, but I bought it as a "collectible", but didn't have the will power to leave it in the garage.

A highly modified 2001 Trans Am took its place.


And a pic of the GPS after the practice run at Big Bend in 2008 (we are limited to 168 by the rules lol)


It runs 166 mph in the mile at the Texas Mile, and would take 6+ miles to achieve top speed (estimated around 193 by Cartest2000 but I doubt I ever go that fast). It has a built motor with heads, cam and full bolt-ons, 6-point welt in roll-bar, Porsche 996tt front brakes, air conditioning and 10 speaker CD sound.

That's awesome! Glad something spectacular took its place. I had a supercharged 95 Silver TA with a built 383 that I sold to a good friend that helped me with the all mods over the years. The TA was actually my first car. I miss it too but still get to ride around in it when I go to NJ to visit my family and him.

I don't know why we have to choose such expensive hobbies but it sure is fun!
