  1. Great idea!! Never thought of that!! That’s why you get paid the big bucks Randy!!!! Thanks
  2. Wow never thought of that or heard of it! Wonder if there is someone that does that for a living in Little Rock area? I'll have to check. Thanks.
  3. You could cut a "cube" out of the corner slightly smaller than necessary to allow for the thickness of the new patch veneer using a good chisel. The main thing is to get the corner square and slightly indented to allow critical placement the square piece you will use to fill in the square cutout you made. The square piece needs to be smaller than the cutout to account for the thickness of the very small patch of veneer. Glue the square piece in place then attache veneer (very thin veneer) Then use a Qtip to dab on stain and finish to match.
  4. i'VE GOT SEVERAL OLD ONE OF DIFFERENT TYPE THAT THE METAL FRAME LOOK BAD. ANYONE KNOW WHAT CAN BE USED TO BRING BACK LUSTER TO THE FRAMES FOR APPEARANCE SAKE. YES I KNOW I CAN BUY NEW ONE FROM BOB CRITES WHO LIVES DOWN THE ROAD JUST A PIECE BUT WANTED TO TRY TO REHAB THE LOOKS FOR SOME RAINY DAY PROJECT. I'VE THOUGHT ABOUT MASKING OFF THE INDUCTOR AND SPRAY PAINTING GLOSS BLACK OR ANOTHER COLOR. ANY HELP APPRECIATED. THANKS. LONGDRIVE03
  5. Yep Victrola, got one of these stored in my attic after removal from the cabinet.
  6. I think these PR's will work on EVERY KLIPSCH SPEAKER!!!!!!!!!😀😀
  7. I've got two of these PR's that I was going to use on a project that never took off. Since purchase they have been in the Eminence boxes and not installed in a cabinet since purchase. If you're needing a 15" PR these would be hard to beat. $50 each plus shipping. Thanks Longdrive03
  8. Here is a link to show more info. https://www.fullcompass.com/prod/205292-electro-voice-920-8b-12-coaxial-loudspeaker
  9. I got these from a friend that worked at EV location here in Arkansas that is now closed. These are cast frame two ways with built in crossover. See link below for more info. These are in great shape and I was told these were not installed in a cabinet at EV. I hooked these up in a make do box to prevent back wave from cancelling out front wave and they sound great - loud and clear. These would be great for a center channel with 90-18KHZ range or for other applications in home. I've seen new prices of $270 to $300 each for these. Selling for $100.00 each plus actual shipping to be determined. Thanks. Longdrive03
  10. I've got several (10) sheets of this 5 ply 3/4" material - the outsides are mdf and insides are wood ply. I think there is a name for this but can't recall. All you shop guys probably know this!!! I think it might be good for speaker cabinets since there would be different woods/mdf with different dampening characteristics? Anybody use this before?????
  11. SOLD back to the original owner of the HIP's Rockhound. I'll let him report on their sound in his home
  12. I think you should Jerry. Won't find a better deal. I hear them calling hour name ..... Jerry, Jerry, Jerry!!!!!!!!! Just a short drive away!
  13. Still for sale at $750 plus actual shipping or pickup. Shameless bump.
  14. Thanks Claude. Appreciate all your help on this project.
  15. I never noticed that when I had them because I wasn't going to usethem. They weren't in the same production year as I recall. Could be because the Klispch K42K has a cast frame front edge and was heavier (thus used the 3/4"???) K42K EV) had a thinner stamped steel frame ???? Could also be another situation wheere Klipsch used what it had on hand from different suppliers or models since you can't tell the difference from the front??? Just guessing.
  16. Another pic taken outside showing the wrap around grain better.
  17. Finished tonight except for screwing down back board - waiting for black screws to come in Wednesday. Bass is much better than Heresy 1 even in my garage. Need to get them in the house to hook up on the floor near a wall. Sound really good. Thanks for your help Claude.
  18. Forgot to add actual shipping charges TBD based on location. Longdrive
  19. You can get the redo history at the link below. Total redo of HIP cabinets sanded down to birch plywood, veneered with fiddleback anegre wood backed veneer, ( including the back outer edges) finished with six coats of wipe on poly, wet sanded and waxed with 0000 steel wool. Will stretch new tan cane weave grill material and post pics later. One woofer is K42 and the other is EV version of K42. Forum members say they specs are almost the same on the woofers. Mid drivers are K55M, and found magnet K77 tweeters. Changed HIE crossover to Cornwall B with modifications per Claude to make these Super Heresys ported in rear. New Parts Express metallized poly caps installed. The original HIP's had mixed K77 tweeters (one square magnet and one round) but I switched another round magnet to get a matching set. New rubber washers on mid horn. Foam installed to reduce mid frequency reflections. Back cover is 3/4" plywood- not 1/2" ply normally on Heresys. I'm in LIttle Rock and have a friend that travels to the Tulsa, Kansas City, and St. Louis areas on business and could probably deliver these to those areas to eliminate shipping. $750 Get em while they're hot!
