Yeah... we realize that, but finding someone willing to lend us one is not the easiest thing to do, nor the most cost efficient method. It is better if we can obtain one directly from the manufacturer, who will have it insured and take care of the shipping to us and back to them (or perhaps let us keep it for a giveaway ).

I personally was very displeased in the 115. The bracing is horrible and not secured well. As far as response and performance I wasn't overly impressed either.

Hmm Bummer. But would love to see them measured.

Re: Subwoofer Testing Coming Soon and Suggestions/Recommendations Thread

I don't think we have reached out to Klipsch and we should look at testing some of their subs. I will see what I can do there.

On another note... I did not bring this up initially, but since they obviously are not interested, I suppose I will let everyone know. When I contacted Danley Sound Labs, I spoke with their marketing guy and he stated that the home theater and forum market is not really the market they wanted to pursue. I tried to explain to him the number of people he could reach via a forum like HTS, but he stated he did not believe the owner would be interested, yet he would talk to him and get back with me. Of course I never heard back and it has been over a month now. What I gathered from the conversation was they only wanted to cater to the professional market and do not want their products in the homes of enthusiast. My perception was that they do not believe the home market really understands their products. It is unfortunate, however, they do have the right to decide their own market.

I've glanced at their SW-311 and KW-120 for a while, wondering what they might be like. If you're able to secure either of those I'm definitely in.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

I got two KW-120 and they are beasts.

There are probably subs who play lower (< 18 Hz, Seaton etc.) out there but imho for the street price and their footprint they are are very good. I run an Anti-mode 8033 C with them.

Re: Subwoofer Testing Coming Soon and Suggestions/Recommendations Thread

Any updates on getting info on TC Sounds Ripcurl amps? I do have LMS-R15s and would love to see a good amp with DSP that matches them. Anyone know if they will drive 2 Ohm

Regards
Dwight

Re: Subwoofer Testing Coming Soon and Suggestions/Recommendations Thread

I checked and I actually sent a request to the Klipsch PR rep back on October 29, 2012... with quite a bit of info included, yet I did not even get an acknowledgement... was totally ignored. I have sent another request and will see what becomes of it. I am not too hopeful though. Unfortunately, some companies are just this way.

As much as I enjoy my Klipsch speakers I must admit when it comes to CS they are lacking. I purchased some Klipsch S4I ii's which came with a soft carrying pouch. Through reading and research I knew some earlier ones included a hard case which I felt with my job would provide better protection. Like you I sent an email requesting info wondering how or where I could obtain the hard case. I never received a reply and must admit I was a bit turned off by the lack of correspondence. Even though they were only $100 earbuds a reply of some sort would have been nice.
