For a sense of scale here is Kevin Harmond with the Klipsch HLS. That is a good size for a horn loaded sub. It would be a blast to put all manner of larger horns on top of this perhaps a Jubilee and some tractrix horns. That would only be about 15ft high lol.
Nice of them add a cherry beauty panel.
This guys room has to be huge.
Top notch construction hand made in Hope, AR USA.

After Klipsch latest showing at CES it is clear that Klipsch pro cinema is where the true principles of PWK are being kept and built upon. The new consumer stuff just leaves me baffled.
Radio Shack has been a zombie for years and just didn't know they were dead. HAH Zombie Shack... Good riddance on one hand as they forsake what made them great and were reduced to batteries and phones. On the other hand I'm sad to see them go for rare time they have parts I need in stock. The problem is they usually didn't have the parts in stock I needed. I would rather have seen Parts Express take them over.
These ads must have been late 40's or early 50's because PWK put an end to licensing his products early on due to quality issues.
It's really alive the hum has been banished. The original Frankenstein is one of my favorite movies. I like it almost as much as Freaks. I don't know if anyone else obsesses over it like me but after he utters the iconic It's Alive a few times he follows it with "now I know what it feels like to be god". All I'm saying is that Jeffrey, Dave, and Chris may have created a monster....
Thanks again Dave Jeffrey Chris and Joe for the help and encouragement.
I've always wanted to build my own tube amp so when I was in New York in May hanging with Jeffrey and Dave they sent me home with a schematic and enough parts to get started on a Stereo 45/2A3 amp. I have been moving toward this project at a glacial pace. I had a bit of help from my friend Chris on layout and the use of his drill press. Metal is so so messy.....
I like the looks even if it isn't perfectly symmetrical. That makes me abit crazy... loll
So how did it go?
Well after my friend Chris went over my work yesterday he only found one issue with a wrong resistor rating which he happened to have so he dropped them by for me today. I completed my homework and plugged it in and turned it on.
Some hum.... Only one channel working.... Sound is coming out.
But no smoke no burning no smoke 8-)
I wasn't going to post until it was working perfectly but that wouldn't be very honest or fun. We learn the most from mistakes anyway.
Stay tuned for part 2.
EDIT Part 1.34
It turns out parts like LED's have polarity and if one is reversed it does not work. Now I have both channels working and the amp is stable. However it just sounds terrible. Tomorrow I'll dive in to take measurements to see what else I have done wrong and buggered up.
