We have some more stuff coming like some new Heritage speakers that WILL BLOW YOU AWAY. Stay tuned.  FOR SALE to MEMBERS of the Klipsch Heritage Museum Assocation, Inc. d/b/a Klipsch Museum of Audio History KLIPSCH SPEAKER SALE (OPEN TO ALL MEMBERS) Featuring Klipsch Heresy’s (Chief Bonehead Editions), Klipsch Professional Theater Speakers (“KPT”) and Klipsch Permanent Installation Speakers (“KI series”) MEMBERSHIP DRIVE AND FUNDRAISER for the Klipsch Museum of Audio History The Klipsch Forum the Klipsch Heritage Museum Association, Inc. (KHMA) which operates the Klipsch Museum of Audio History recently received a generous donation of Klipsch speakers they had in excess inventory. These speakers were used as “demo” speakers from trade shows, speaker demonstrations and tested in installations. When they were returned to Klipsch in Hope, Arkansas they were all tested at the factory by the head of Quality Assurance and determined to be in excellent working order. The KHMA has decided to use these speakers to encourage people to join KHMA by initially offering them only to MEMBERS of the KHMA, and . . . As a special “thank you” YOU, our Members The Officers of KHMA wanted this be an additional benefit to show our thanks to all of YOU for stepping up first and in a substantial way. A very big thank you to our largest contributor and sponsor Klipsch Group, Inc. for this colossal donation of speakers. Friends, there are no pink headphones or “crap audio ” in this list. Now for the speakers. The Thanks “UP-FRONT” Kevin Harmon, KHMA Trustee and Khorn Corps member, personally inspected all of these speakers and they were photographed by Khorn Corps Member Elden Luquet, husband of KHMA Trustee and Secretary, Christy Luquet. Kevin, as many of you know, has bought and sold a lot of Klipsch Professional, KPT and KI speakers over the years. Bill Hendrix supplied a wealth of information on these speakers. He has owned practically every KPT and KI product we are offering for sale, as well as used them to set up sound for his church and other settings. A tremendous shout of thanks to Jim Hunter for picking up these speakers from KGI and taking them to our new annex building out near the airport. Finally, thanks to Chief Bonehead, Trustee Roy Delgado, Jr., for suggesting to KGI they donate these speakers in the first place, filling in some technical information here and there, AND, agreeing to sign the Chief Bonehead Heresy’s. Physical Condition of these speakers varies from “good” up to “excellent”. They have been photographed and you can view all photos and judge the condition of these speakers for yourself by going to one of the following links: Speaker Photos Dropbox link with “hi-res” photos: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4lx0uurp15zbsxs/AABr3we9ERoj0ASDYBGJYV4ha?dl=0 The Dropbox folder includes a Subfolder with the photos of the Chief Bonehead Edition Heresy IIIs.

If you pick up before or after Pilgrimage you will also need to bring along your own manpower to load them in your vehicle of choice. Technical and Condition Questions: If you have technical questions about the speakers for sale, Bill Hendrix and Kevin Harmon have volunteered to answer questions about the specific products, how they sound, what they match with, what components they have, what goes well with what, etc. For the fastest response, I would send both of them an email and they can get back to you as their schedules allow. Also, include a text and/or phone number so if that is the quickest way for them to respond they can use that option. Bill Hendrix has owned, bought and sold nearly every product on this list and is very knowledgeable regarding the KPT and KI product lines. He can probably even tell you if a particular speaker will fit in a Suburban or not. Kevin Harmon has also owned some of the speakers on the list and has personally viewed each and every speaker listed.

  9. From Matt Sommers, Creative Director and Renaissance Man: Dear Klipsch Family and Friends, We are excited to share the new ‘Keepers of the Sound’ video series, which honors audio pioneer and company founder Paul W. Klipsch, and celebrates pioneers of all crafts — spotlighting those who’ve stayed true to a vision of preserving their rich heritage, while adapting to today’s tech-driven world. These pioneers give insights into how listening to music through Klipsch speakers drives their spirit and endeavors. The first installment in the video series features legendary American musician, singer-songwriter, and producerButch Walker, as he creates music for his new album using Klipsch headphones and speakers in the recording studio and playback listening area. Walker has performed on, written and produced albums for artists including Taylor Swift, Train, Pink, Avril Lavigne, Keith Urban, Katy Perry, The Struts, Panic! At the Disco, Pete Yorn, Harry Connick Jr., Weezer, Fall Out Boy, and many more. As a friend of Klipsch, and supporter of pioneering craftsmen in pursuit of a better, more powerful and emotional listening experience, please help us promote this video and Butch Walker by posting or sharing it on your social media platforms. SHARE or REPOST from the Klipsch Social Media Channels on Wednesday, September 19. Here is a list of our properties.

    Classic Heresy I HWO, consecutive serial numbers

    I think there's one in MO, for sure one in OR.
  17. Yes personal audio speakers, for you and up to 300 of your closest friends at a Mancuso Loft party or Brooklyn nightclub
  18. Steve Winwood's daughter live through Khorns, free food and ETOH to boot
  19. If I was anywhere within 3 hours if that I would be there. That dealer is clearly "all in" with Klipsch and Mac.
  20. they can't be at the same time, IRS requires an election. But you can have a partnership made up of multiple LLC's and Corporations.
  21. Both provide limited liability, one is a corporation, one is a hybrid (LLC). They both typically provide the same protection, however, one is taxed like a corporation, the other like a partnership so you can avoid the "S" corp drawbacks. This is more of an accounting question than a legal question. Travis
  22. You @Don Richard @TubeHiFiNut both need to take a breath. I didn't go back to see where this started (not gonna), it just doesn't need to continue. After all, this is just audio.
