Greetings Forum Family,
This is indeed a great opportunity for forum folks to have first access to speakers donated by Klipsch in support of the museum. Please note that the prices are but a few dollars over half price. Roy knows that I have Klipsch in-wall and in-ceiling speakers in my home and have installed them in friends' homes and asked me to share with you. Each of these speakers was voiced by Roy and, therefore, share the Klipsch signature sound.
I will be purchasing some of these for additional applications in my own home. My Klipsch pro theater is in need of some ATMOS height speakers and a couple of you have asked about ATMOS height. ATMOS height runs from about 100Hz up and all of the speakers on the list are capable of serving as ATMOS height. I will be purchasing two of the DS-180CDT. The DS-180CDT and the DS-160-CDT both permit modest aiming of both woofer and tweeter. That will allow us to aim the speakers back a bit.
The CSM speakers are two speakers in one chassis. There are two tweeters mounted in a dual-voice coil woofer. Both left and right channel are present in one speaker, much like the AWR-650-SM rock speakers. I will be buying two of the DS-180CSM to install in the ceiling over a covered patio and two more for a friend's patio ceiling.
The DS-250W LCR look very interesting with similar configuration to the venerable KG-2.5, a real over-achiever. These should make great LCR speakers in the wall around a TV and even better with a sub.
For the DIY and tinkerers, any of these speakers could be mounted in a little 1 to 1.5 cu ft cabinet for a variety of applications, like a pair of garage speakers. The in-wall speakers were all designed to be installed in a wall cavity with 16" OC studs and 8' ceiling. That totals about 2.7 cu ft. A little floor standing DIY cabinet 12" wide, 12" deep, and 42" high yields about the same volume. You could build a little mini tower and pop in one of these speakers. I'm sure y'all will have more creative uses.
Please let me know how I can help or answer questions . . . .
