    Hi everyone, I recently picked up some Klipsch Quartets that I am going to upgrade with the Crites Speakers crossovers. I've seen some folks bracing on similar speakers like the Fortes. I haven't seen anything specific about what it means to brace and what strategy to employ while doing it...

  10. SDX15 Quartet Build - Unimpressed. Suggestions?

    Creative Sound Solutions
    I finished up the build and have just been testing it the last couple of days. Two thoughts. 1st - The amp seems to rattle. 2nd - It doesn't seem to have much output before the amp goes into clipping. I've placed it next to a 10 year old Mirage 10" I have wanted to replace and it honestly...
