  1. I would like to send my very deepest condolences to Roy Delgado, Chief Engineer for Klipsch Group, Inc. on the unexpected loss of his younger brother. I will be sending our condolences to the family in Donna, TX. If any of you would like to contribute you may do so by sending donations to Busy.bees.orders@gmail.com via PayPal. Just put ROY on your contribution I’m not tagging Roy or any of his family in this post, in the hopes that we can pull this off without notifying them. As always, feel free to PM me with any questions you may have. Christy
  2. Once we finalize the donation procedure for this project the placard will read something similar to “Donated by the Klipsch Forum Community, Klipsch Owners Facebook Group” and other Facebook group members that may contribute, such as Vintage Klipsch Owners, Klipsch Fanatics, etc. This project struck a chord with a lot of folks. The momentum assured the Museum could make the acquisition. We could not have accomplished this without all of you supporting the effort. I’m truly overwhelmed!!! Thank you all!
  3. Klipsch fans are truly “die hard”, in case you haven’t figured that out yet! We are a bunch of crazies. Thank you @rjw1678! Hope you stick around here for awhile! It’s a great group of folks.
  4. Stay tuned...all of you that have so graciously offered to donate towards this cause. We (the Museum) will need a couple of days to work out how to handle the transactions internally. We will be updating here with a link on how you can contribute. Thank you all!!! The support for this project has been incredible!
  5. @DizRotus, thank you for your phone call today. I think we are all in agreement these LaScalas are deserving of placement in the Museum. We will all do whatever is necessary to accomplish this task. Thank you to everyone that has offered input and monetary assistance to make this happen. There are times I feel “tested” by my involvement in the museum and then there are times that my heart explodes with pride. This is a case of feeling the pride. You guys are absolutely the best. Looking forward to the next update from @DizRotus
  6. I’m thinking your estimate is a little high considering the condition.
  7. @USNRET, we have transportation arranged at no charge to the museum. Thank you all for continued support of our efforts.
  8. Thank you @Youthman I’m hoping the OP realizes the historical significance of these speakers, by donating them to the Museum. I have transportation arranged to the Museum in Hope, AR if the OP is willing to donate. Of course, a letter of donation would be provided. That being said, I’m in agreement with you. It would take a tremendous amount of work to restore these. Christy
  9. I’m just not sure what the OP is wanting. A donation of LaScalas would of course be ideal. Beyond that we may have to request donations to fund the purchase. I am of the opinion that they belong in the Museum...hopefully the OP is of the same belief.
  10. I have asked @JRH to take a look at this thread. Personally, as a Board of Trustee member and Secretary of the Executive Committee for the Klipsch Heritage Museum Association, I want these for the Museum. If the OP would be willing to donate these, the Museum could possibly arrange to pay shipping. I’m loving this. To the best of my knowledge we have no LaScalas in our Museum collection. OP, please advise????
  11. Anybody recall the forum member that tracks pricing on used Klipsch Heritage speakers?
  12. What a great loss for the music industry and our community. https://www.google.com/amp/amp.tmz.com/2017/10/25/fats-domino-dead-dies
  13. I completely agree with this statement.
  14. Technical and modifications would probably be a great section to post this project! Can’t wait to see your progress! Looks like all you folks from that area need to get together and attend the 2018 Pilgrimage to Hope, AR! Christy

  16. Warning points have been issued for the abusive posts in this thread. Enough with the name calling.

    What I Got Today!

    @Ceptorman...black. They will match our other forte iis, and the 402 horns. We did see the lighter colored grills but preferred the black for placement in our family room.

    What I Got Today!

    @Schu, these were a gift from @pappyIII, which makes them even more special. Elden and I both are overwhelmed.

    What I Got Today!

    Picked these beauties up in Hope, AR this weekend. A huge shout out to @pappyIII for his generosity. They are beautiful and we are just getting around to some listening.
  20. No the mods do not catch everything. Unfortunately we all have this thing called life that demands our attention every now and then. That being said this type of language is not acceptable, ever under any conditions. In the future PM me or another mod immediately when something like this happens.
  21. My cell is 601-799-8350. @jmcamp54 please text me. We are actually up here this weekend working. Would love to add you to my list of folks we can call on when we need help. Will be at the Museum today working.
