    Finally I got them today and did the upgrade, wow what a difference - day and night.
    It takes about 10 mins and for anyone that has Klipsch speakers, please do the upgrade, there will be 0 regrets.

    Here are few pics:

    Just imagine switching to a large format driver with more than half as much less distortion as a small format driver and here you are using a tiny one inch diaphragm with even more distortion (about twice as much) than a small format compression driver. You could even consider a larger horn to lower the point at which your polar response is held under control. That's why bigger is always better. This change is a good example of what a small improvement can do for your listening enjoyment.

    Is there any way you could make your listening area any wider and not so confined to the speakers only being 2 feet apart or so? I guess a person has to work with the space given but that's going to always be a limiting factor in the performance of the KLF series speakers with the rear firing ports as are most all rear ported speakers. Is there a "long wall" in the room where you could have them, say, 8 to 10 feet apart?

    So what's the size of this area that you're using? How far do you sit from the speakers? There almost becomes a point of diminishing returns in going much larger with speakers within certain listening distances and room sizes.
