Description

After a long time building, swapping, going back on ideas, I finally finished the system I had in my head. 
This will keep me happy...just for a while....

Hello Al.....   I came by today to visit and look at MANY of the audio systems / photos and was saddened to see yours as being the ONLY Klipsch equipped system !   I was happy to see your Klipschorns!!   

I am very active in the Klipsch forums, and hang out during the weekends on 'RIght This Minute'....  You should take a stop by, we have a great group of Klipsch owners on board...

My room (Longfellow Music Hall) is a special room tuned for the Klipshorns.  Simple system....  Dynaco Mark 3's - Dynaco PAS-2 into the KH's....   The speakers are 18' apart center to center, so there is PLENTY of breathing room for them and the seating area is 17' back...   My doors are always open for anyone that would like to come by for a day and spend some time listening...  

Funny you should mention the Crites upgrades.   I JUST sold his tweeters to a forum member and went back to the originals! I really could not hear the difference, don't know why I did the upgrade...

However,   I DO have the Sonos caps on the xovers, but that is the only change...   Had to get rid of the old GE oil filled caps before they leaked out!   These are on the TYPE 'A' units...   Mine were built in 1967 and have the unusual WHITE grill cloth....   

Enjoy the music !

Hi there

The room is 15ft x 24ft ( about 10ft high)
It works very well with the k horn but to be honest I believe if I could have 3 more ft wide and 4 in length I couldn’t ask for better placement. The setup sounds great but I have the feeling that on a wider spacing it could sound even more realistic at decent volume. Do you have any experience in placing khorn?

Thank you for the comments. It does sound lovely. Especially since I replaced the stock tweeter with the crites 120 together with new crites crossover A/4500. Really nice improvement for not so much dollars.

That is a really nice system. I have a Bottlehead Eros and a Crack with Speedball in one of my systems. I've been fantasizing about building a system with Klipsch LaScala's and BH amps.
