Klipsch Ultra Fanatic

Klipsch Ultra Fanatic (7/9)



  1. It was a smaller group but very high quality. There are discussions ongoing for making changes for the next get-together. A BIG THANK YOU to Ginny for stepping up and taking command of the visitor center and taking care of the day-to-day business. She is the local we desperately needed. The new gift shop is growing and getting many different products. Thank you Ginny!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Roy and Jim for the classes and tours. The hardest working group we have is of course Craig and his crew. It is amazing to see the progress every time we go back. For all the members thank you so much because without you the PWK Museum wouldn't exist and the events would never happen.

  2. If you get exact duplicate can caps made from HeySeed you just take really good pics so you get everything right and make sure you get everything on the right value. Don't do anything you aren't comfortable with but it isn't bad if you get the right parts and document properly.
  3. Caps don't look leaky. Maybe a nice cleanup and fresh wires for cosmetics if ya feel the need. If they work leave them. Mine were physically oozing or I wouldn't have touched them.
  4. Don't chicken out just replace the big can caps with some from Heyseed Electronics and that big brown electrolytic and you will be most of the way there. I love these fishers and can't get enough of them. Good luck.
  5. I am considering getting a ultrasonic cleaner from harbor freight for restorations but also I was thinking I could design and 3d print an lp holder for it. https://www.harborfreight.com/automotive/cleaners-auto-care/cleaners-degreasers/parts-washers-cleaners/6-liter-ultrasonic-parts-cleaner-59430.html The one you posted looks better.
  6. How much does an 1802 HLS cost. It will go lower than 20hz and sounds fantastic. I have one and it is insanity. After hearing the new Jubilee I understand where they are going. Klipsch is as good now as they have ever been. The road ahead is bright. IMO. The new subs are based on the HLS technology. These new subs will be game-changers because traditional subs just can't keep up with horns. I know I tried for years and sold every sub I ever heard. The only one I liked was Bruce Edgars Titan but it belonged to a friend.
  7. 1957 Ampex console first stereo console. This is a good one. I've had it for years and taken many stabs at restoration. I finally made some progress. The amps, preamp, and tuner are now functionally. I also added some bluetooth. The record changer is going to be swapped and the RTR need serious help. The belts fell out the motor needs some work. All that being said I have a tuner and bluetooth for now. The guts all spread out so we can find issues more easily. Nice little JBL 8" full rangers.
  8. Ye olde price price. I hate to ship so lets try $850.
  9. Ok it was noisier than I could be happy with so we replaced the filament transformer with a potted filament transformer. We also added potted upgraded choke. Also rerouted some input wires. It is now much much better. Don't think it can get any quieter. This is abit over the top for what I need so it must go. Forum price $850
  10. We are going to build some LP storage units next year. I hate reading spines. I just won't do it. Maybe I can't do it lol....
  11. They were never as good separately as they were together as a group. John has always been my fave. If John had lived longer there is no telling what would have happened I'm sure we would have had another album or two but they went out on top.. Go read the book The Beatles Sessions. It is an eye opener on how much they collaborated which was a lot. It also shows the influence of Martin and the EMI engineers. Together they were unstoppable and built a catalogue of work unequaled in such a short amount of time.
  12. Thanks for the kind words. Jim Hunter got the #1 Khorn operational. I just bought a woofer off of ebay which we aren't sure is optimal but appears to have worked. Lucky us. The museum still had some PWK Western Electric 555s left so Jim had to make a stand so the weight of the driver didn't hurt the horn. This also required a field coil supply of about 7 volts @ 1.5 amps. Then it was ready to roll. This all started when Jim and someone found an amplifier carcass in the basement. The original idea was to do a delicate restoration but this amp wasn't safe by any modern standards. This thing ran just under 400v across the room to the speaker. This is when I noticed the gain goes to 11 so eat your heart out spinal tap. Then we found late 1940's articles that mentioned his Push Pull 6a5g / 2a3 amplifier with integrated electronic crossover. This was the amplifier parts we had on hand. I didn't feel right changing the artifact. We decided to leave the amp as an artifact in the museum and build something from scratch based on the artifact, schematic, and the articles PWK left for us. This was a group effort I just paid for stuff and was the solder monkey 8-) . Dave Slagle of intact audio helped figure out all the custom iron for the electronic crossover. Not only did Dave figure it out and wind the parts but he donated them to the museum. This project would never have worked without so much help and expertise from Jim, Chris, and Dave... BTW the tubes in this amp were PWK's and were in the original they still tested good so we used em... I hope PWK would be ok with some of the liberties we took. Oh BTW this is a 5 Watt amplifier. Some parts are different just because we had better parts available. This is what started it all. Here is the artifact...
  13. If we took any pictures there was a big guy that took our cameras and smashed them to pieces. The bonehead classes are a should have been there events. I can't wait for it to hit the fan. Roy has a winning recipe of whoopass.
