post #17431 of 35363
@PinotEvil, I'm using RB-61s and SW-450 sub for a2.1 setup and love it. I got black 61s for $350 on clearance when the 61IIs came out, $400 for the 61IIs is a good deal.
What price talk rule? Prices are flying in the tv threads.

Man, these horn loaded tweeters are a trip. Just looks like a big square hole with a pc of clear plastic in the middle, but very clean sound. Looked at some diagrams online. How in the world do they pickup the details more than many normal some tweeters?
post #17433 of 35363
compression drivers
post #17434 of 35363
Yeah, I just read some how to's on making the horn and phase plugs. Explains why it looks like it does when you look in there with a light.

I also like the way the Reference II grills look. I'm leaving them on.

Yup! Pulled trigger... had to do it. Been eyeing them up for a couple weeks now, but couldn't swing the $549 pricetag. ALMOST went with those Energy's that I "didn't" mention in an earlier post. But then literally stumbled onto this deal. BANG! I was sold....

Any suggestions on a crossover for these and that RW-12D sub? 80Hrz do the trick?

I had a find yesterday. Found a pair of chorus II's at a pawn shop yesterday in great condition. I got real excited and started thinking I'll be in trouble when I bring these speakers home. The wife would kill me. To my relief the price tag read $800 for the pair. WAY overpriced. Didn't say it was a good find, but in my cruising around pawn shops/thrift stores for vintage audio equipment that was one of the better items I've seen. Now if I can just talk them down to $200 I might be in business!

If they are in really good condition $200.00 each is a good price. Klipsch only made them for 6 years ... shame as they have a great sound. I have seen them go for $300.00 each for like new one's here in Fort Worth. Cornwalls go for what the pawn shop wants for them.

80hz or 120hz on the sub. although you might find that anything higher than 80hz might localize the sub.

The only klipsch I routinely see around here are the little 2.1 media set. Studio monitors and p.a. speakers are what's popular in the pawn shops here. Its a shame. I see more good components at the goodwill than I do at pawn shops.

not totally sure right now. I might be something custom. Something that mimics a RF7, but with two 12 inch woofers and compression driver for the mains. two 10 inch woofers and compression driver for the center, and one 12 and compression driver for the surrounds. All in tower configs.

Look on Craigs List for Klipsch KLF-20's or 30's Towers. Best friend has 4 of the 20's and the matching C7 center and a SVS Ulta 13...WOW on HD Blurays. Stereo is not bad either. But he has a Very large room that opens up the rest of the house with tall ceilings and a hard wood floor. RF-7's were so brite in there he had to decrease the gain to them(loaners). I have super small den, low ceilings and carpet. My old Cornwalls are 8 feet apart and in the corners turned as to aim at your shoulders setting the ceter of the sofa 8 feet back old school "Boxie" tone bass on soft music AVR on Direct mode...no processor. Dad had these on a McIntosh when I was youger so I have 30 plus years on Cornwalls....
Brother had LaScalas and Heresy II and they all have different sounding bass in the right room placed correctly (see owners book for heritage ) can't go wrong with KLF 20 or 30 X 4 or go to Bob Crites web site he makes custom Klipsch mains and surrounds with Heritage style horns etc... I have his new cross over boards in Pop's 1979 Cornwalls wow at super low volume you hear the L to R seperation... Have fun....
post #17445 of 35363
no, what I meant was that i might do something custom not bought. I have know about crites for a while.

Cool..... my late Dad made some DIY Klipschorns back in the late 1960's when I was a kid. They are in the shop covered up. They need new 15" woofers and the wood needs to be refinished and buy new Klipsch grill cloth. Old University Classic folded horns,old Jensen Gold tweeters with drivers. They are just too big to sound right in my small den. Next year when we add on to back of the house I have some ideas I got from TLS Guy.wow look at his room.... post up when you build them.

Standoutdesigns.com has solid wood cabinets made the same design with the doors or open shelves and fans in the rear but expensive. Maybe after the Holidays I will get a black one. They have a add on this forum with a pic of a RC-62 with the grill off. That is what caught my eye, was my center fits in it perfect.

Your Dad does Great work.... I wish my Pop was still here to help me build one too. Some day I get around to restoring his DIY speakers. Oh well he was 90... hope I have another 30
post #17451 of 35363
I would definately advise you to build one. Not hard at all and fun.
post #17452 of 35363

surround. Im under the impression you would use surround back with 7.1
post #17454 of 35363
I would need prints and some instruction on a project like this. I framed houses (summer job in college) and I built my 8' fence in back yard. Finish cuts....ummm need a table saw or???? I need to Google this and read up on projects like this. I bet their are prints or kits etc.... you got me thinking. Do you prints for your cabinet?????
Long winter and attached 2 car garage I can heat to work in.I retired this year I wish I had watched my dad build those speakers when I was a kid.... had a Honda 90 so Pop's speakers were not on my radar back then.. now when he was done

oppps Sorry for thread jack...

I got a craigslist app on my phone. Everytime someone posts something with klipsch in it I get notified. Lots of kg series around lately. Don't have room for them, but if I find something big or heritage series on the cheap I'll be on it.
post #17456 of 35363
Yeah. The CL app is fantastic for notifications. I have mine setup for several different markets since my home city isn't huge on hifi.
post #17457 of 35363
Thanks for the tip Brandon! I now have that app on the iPad.
post #17458 of 35363

It really is a great app. I have mine set up for all sorts of different notifications. Problem with it is I have so many it updates with a bunch every few minutes. I know I can change the frequency of the notifications, but I'm always afraid that mega too good to be true deal will come up and I'll miss it if I don't check.

Now if I can just find another single la scala in working condition for about $50 then I'll be set!

I could use the other $50.00 LaScala for a center for my Cornwalls
