  1. 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 . . . . Bill
  2. I have RB-75 about 12’ from seating with 8” RCR-5 directly over head, but about 18” further apart each side than width of seating. Turned them down another 3db from Audyssey settings and it sounds great.
  3. Hi Emmett and welcome to the Forum!! I am researching some interesting up-coming options from the Museum Store (new post to follow). Klipsch does make pendants to which you can add in-ceiling speakers, but that will likely be less satisfying. Klipsch makes the Designer Series that offer two options with pivoting (aimable) woofer and tweeter, the 8" DS-180CDT and the 6.5" DS-160CDT. I am ordering a pair of the DS-180CDT to use as ceiling height speakers so I can aim them back to the listening area. There is a modest 15 degrees of aimability. The Klipsch Museum of Audio History will be offering B stock DS-180CDT for about $175 each and the DS-160CDT for about $152 each, bit over half off. Watch for details coming soon . . . .
  4. I have rear RCR-5 (8" predecessor to 5800) in one room with RB-75 LCR and rear RCR-3 ( 6.5" predecessor to 5650) in another room with RB-75 LCR. The 5 (8") is fuller sounding than the 3 (6.5"). Either speaker will work fine for surround, but you may prefer the larger. I assume you are using a receiver that will allow you to adjust the volume of the rear to an appropriate "front-matching" level. There is no replacement for displacement........
  5. The K2s are on their way to their new home.
  6. I have two Crown K2 amps for sale in good condition and operation. These were originally owned by our own, Michael Colter, then sold to a forum member for a garage system. I have enjoyed these in my home for the last few years. Now it's time for someone else to enjoy them . . . $350 each, or $650 for the pair.
  7. KP-362.pdf Here is spec sheet on KP-362. I'm using four of them for live music in outdoor beer garden. They sound fantastic, but were not designed to give deep bass below 40ish. We use two KP-682 double 18s for the lower stuff. For your home use, you may prefer the addition of a small sub. It won't take much in a small setting.
  8. Ki-396-B = Black -W = White -R = Raw Birch
  9. Dual 15" with a 510 on top is called a KPT-904. A fabulous 2 channel or HT
  10. The KPT-884 is a fabulous sub that I used with my Jubilees per Roy's recommendation. I powered it with a Crown Xti. Deep and clean.
  11. Hi All, Looking for a single Ki-362 or Ki-215, with or without drivers. I have KP-362, but the cabinets are 1" too wide for the installation. Thanks! Bill
  12. Hi, I'm looking for a pair (maybe two pair) of KP-682 pro subwoofers or KPT-684, please. Thx!
  13. Here you go... KI-102 116448.pdf
  14. The need has been filled. Thanks to all for your PMs and assistance.
  15. Woofer is the K-48 (not K-44), same as Chorus
  16. Thanks, Emile. I pm'd JC. Looking for KSM-12 to match others,
  17. Hi All, I'm looking to buy a couple of KSM-12 stage monitors. If you have some, or know of some, please let me know. Thank you, Bill
  18. The KP-3002 is a great speaker. K-48 woofer (think Chorus) with a K-65 HF driver on the 604 horn. The K-65 is a real over-achiever. The box is constructed of OSB and covered with rat fur (carpet). Anything under $375-$400/pair, in good condition, is a good deal (imho).
  19. Specs can be found on page 10 http://images.klipsch.com/SWIIManual_635042116832530000.pdf
  20. Those are fantastic! That kpt-4350 would be a great center channel between all those 904s out there. Put it on its side and set a really big tv on top. ;-)
  21. Update 2/2/18, 3pm: Several of you are going to be enjoying your new/additional adventures in Klipsch pro. Tim says he has at least a couple pair left. He really appreciates your support.
  22. I've been in conversation with Tim Kresko, Audio Rescue in St. Louis. Tim has experienced some medical challenges and is offering some really good prices for Klipsch Pro to raise some cash. Tim is offering the KPT-456 for $200 each, or $400 for a pair. The KPT-456 uses the same LF as the KPT-904; two K-45 woofers. The 456 uses the venerable Klipsch 1132 HF driver on a tractrix 506 horn. The cabinets are in really nice shape. Unlike the 904 where the HF sits naked on top of the LF, the 456 HF is enclosed in a really nice cabinet the same width and depth as the LF. It looks sort of like the top-hat on a K-horn B model. These are without networks and can be bi-amped or Crites can fabricate networks. Bob has the network schematic, so you can roll your own, should you prefer. Bob M. of Ram Sound and JC speak highly of the 456. I purchased two pair, JW purchased two pair, two of my local buds are considering some for themselves. I believe Tim had 13 pair total, so there should be a few pair left for first-come. Tim also has a complete pair of MCM1900 with networks for $800. That's a deal!! He also has some MWM (2 woofers) for $100 and split MWM (1 woofer) for $50. I'm happy to answer any questions (within my knowledge set) and put those interested in touch with Tim, for those who may need his contact info. Let the shopping begin . . . . We may be able to arrange a pony express run from St Louis through KC, Wichita, Oklahoma City, to the DFW area if there is sufficient interest and a willingness to add a few bucks for gas like we did a few years ago for the pony express run from Nashville.
