    Woofer replacement in old speaker

    Hi, I was away from this project for a while. Just wanted to verify that this surround replacement will work ok before I order. I measured the diameter of the cone itself to be 5,7/8" and the outer is just shy of 8,1/4".

    v3 Paradigm CC-170 - Excellent shape

    Sorry to anyone who e-mailed me. I'm no longer able to sell at this price, the shipping to the US was calculated wrong and it would end up costing me too much to ship to make it worth my while:frowning:.

    v3 Paradigm CC-170 - Excellent shape

    WITHDRAWN I have for sale a Paradigm CC-170 v3. This is a horizontal mtm style speaker that sits on top of most medium sized or bigger TVs. It is in excellent overall condition. In fact, the only difference I noticed from a new model is a small smudge on the tweeter that doesn't affect sound...

    Finally finished my infinite baffle

    I've heard from a few sources that it's common for pro-amps to not have enough gain for some recievers. Some sort of in-line pre-amp may be best.

    Amateur review of the Adire Audio HE 10.1

    Thought I'd update this a bit since I got new equipment: Here's the new test equipment. Pioneer DV-578 Universal DVD player connected via digital coax to a Musical Fidelity X-DAC. The DAC is connected via nice DIY RCA cables to a Cambridge Audio Azur 540a stereo integreated amp and the output...

    Speakers vs room size

    Yeah I suppose the definition of a bookhshelf speaker may not be the same to everyone. Many might not consider my Aidre HE 10.1s to be bookshelf speakers. They are relatively large and have a 10" mid-woofer.

    I should clarify what I mean with positioning too. Since the Klispch speakers use horn-tweeters their high frequency response is somewhat distributed in a small range. So instead of aiming the speakers directly at the listener, try aiming them more in a straight forward fashion. Good luck!

    I've found that amplifiers have alot less effect on overall tonality then the speakers. If you find they are too bright you can play around with their positioning. As well, you might want to experiment with placing items in your room that can warm up the sound, such as rugs or curtains.

    what is headroom???

    Definetely. I've got Adire Audio HE 10.1s (95.5 db/w/m) powered by 30 clean watts per channel and the headroom is amazing. It sounds so effortless and I've never had the amp run out of juice.

    Speakers vs room size

    There are 2-way bookshelf designs that can do this as well. My Adire Audio HE 10.1s are a bookshelf stlye design but are capable of high SPL. They are also 95.5 db/w/m which is very efficient by most standards. Covers 60Hz to 20 kHz quite well too. However, I can see what you're saying with...
