What horns are you using?

I am debating on using either the Heresy Industrials or the KP 3002 for the side surrounds... Any suggestions? The HIPs are a 3 way, and the KP3002 are 2 ways. but almost as tall as my La Scalas were.
I am using EV hp 640s for the left and right with the Faital pro hf200 drivers. The center will be a Lascala bass bin with a p audio ph 4525 horn with bm d750(aka K69, which is what they put on the K402).


As for your surround I think the HIPs would be the way to go since they are smaller. I know some like to use their Cornwalls for surrounds but I think its way over kill. Now since the Kp3002 are 2 ways they may match better with your customer fronts. One idea is sell both and pick up 2 pairs of the Kpt-100 which I think would be ideal.

How do you like the Faitals? I have the HF14 drivers (same as the ones you have but without the 2" adapter) I am waiting on my 2" adapters, and then I will be installing them in my 2 EV940 horns, and 1 EV9040 Horn which will be setup on my 3 La Scala bass bins. The EV9040 horn will become my center and the EV940s will become my width channels. Yeah, I thought about the 100s but I decided to go with the more efficient HIPs, and KP 3002. I was real tempted to sell the HIPs and get another set of the 3002s though. What keeps me with the HIPs is that they are small enough that I could use them for heights in the front. I think I will sell the SR-70s though.

So how does the Faital driver compare to the original EV driver?

Re: My retirement Home Theater

I haven't really given the Faitals a chance yet, are the 9040s large horns.

Here ya go...https://www.google.com/search?q=ev+h...m=122&ie=UTF-8 The 9040 is similar to the JBL 2360A horn.

Sorry but it wouldn't let me copy the pdf address.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

I feel like I am going down memory lane for the Klipsch lineup. 402's, 510, MTM's ect. I wish I had the room. Jealous

I do remember seeing the 1/4 pie build. I have always kept my eye on horn builds from the Klipsch guys. JWC and others. Looks like a great design that will reach down to about 30hz I think.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Today we got the walls up for the area behind the screen for the speakers. Hopefully in tomorrow we will get it all sealed off, and insulated. I have discovered that we have room for the height channels if we put them in the corners about a foot behind the Width channels. Will that be ok? If not we can put them in front of the screen close to the ceiling, but it is not as good of a location as the corners would be as the corners will allow the screen to be higher on the wall.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

I think a foot behind would be ok - are you planning to use Audyssey or a like piece of software? It should be able to handle the delays and such without an issue...
