    What I Got Today!

    Got ahold of Klipsch... They are sending me out a new driver and told me to keep the other. Very easy to work with!

    What I Got Today!

    Mine came with K-77-M squawkers, from the previous owner. They sounded great as well. The CT-120 was very noticeable, but they also complete the highs that the K-77's can't reach.

    I put the A-55's in when I got home from work today. Not much to comment on yet. They may seem a tad lower in volume, but they sound good. I'll probably need to listen to them for awhile. I did rerun Audessy and it did change the EQ a touch. I forgot to take a before and after pic. I likely will not make a thread about, but will when I completely refinish the speakers over winter.

    What I Got Today!

    Ordered some K-33-E's from Klipsch the other day and received them today. I was pretty disappointed... Even before opening one of them, you could tell it wasn't packaged well, and it wasn't. No plastic bag and nothing to stop it from knocking around. I requested a replacement for the one driver as it looks beat up. Hopefully CS is easy to work with. That's thr driver cocked at an angle. It fell soon after this picture. The box looks like an outer box to the other box. Packaged very different...

    Picked up some A-55-G's. I'll probably install tomorrow and see what I think.
  6. I picked up some good condition La Scalas built in '78 and the wife likes they way the look over the RF-62's that they replaced. She thinks they look cooler and doesn't mind the size. We have a large living room, so that helps. I wasn't sure how she'd react... But a negative response would not have stopped me anyway. I've never heard the new La Scalas, but I know I prefer the look of the older ones... Probably because I grew up with them. I've upgraded drivers and the crossovers to my liking.
  7. I haven't owned a SHO in 6 years. I tune the fastest SHO in the world and have started tuning more these days. You'll see me on Netflix in the fall... www.jaztuning.com K-77's are still for sale.
  8. I have a set of K-77's I pulled out of my LA Scalas to upgrade and I will likely never use. Both were in perfect working condition when pulled this week. The horns have a little poly on them from whenever someone finished the cabinets. $125 shipped CONUS.

    Close... It's gotta Klipsch badge for a reason. My Jeep has a Mercedes diesel in it. 😛

    I grew up with my dad having a set of La Scala's that he purchased in 1982 and knew what they'd sound like... So I knew I'd be changing some things. Overall, I wish I had bought these sooner.

    Someone did some swapping on mine before I got them. They had AL's and the squawker had been replaced with a K-55-M (which sounds good and the cap is sealed). I like the high end extension of the new tweeters. Coming from RF-62's, I was missing it with the stock speakers (some of that could have been crossovers). The squawker/horn is less in your face now, but balances out nicely. I'll still need listen to them more, but I will probably just sell the old parts to recoup money from upgrading as I don't plan to put them back in.

    I didn't waste time in upgrading! I picked up some CT120's and A/4500's and I am very happy so far. I will likely upgrade to the A-55G soon and replace the bass drivers.

    What I Got Today!

    So... I finally got these in my house last weekend after buying them 10 months ago. I am pretty happy with them as they are in decent shape. I will refinish them soon, but I already ordered A/4500 XO's and CT-120's. I will likely get the A-55's and replace the bass driver with a new K-33 (one of them has a noise, but I haven't opened it up yet as I could only hear it on once song). My sub is keeping up with these better than I thought.
  14. No longer for sale.
