  1. Fast or slow-blow?
  2. Glass. It might be best to just be patient and measure once they've arrived. Tolerance stack ups can cause slight variations within the same model group of any product.
  3. I can vouch for this, as well. I've reamed out many a vintage cymbal mounting hole from the old 7/16" to the new 1/2". This demurring tool works well to break the sharps.
  4. I will, too, if I can ever get the remaining cables built out. $5.00 is a bargain.
  5. I have several interconnects using this. Good stuff, studio standard.
  6. If the old gear hasn't been serviced, be prepared to spend some money getting it up to snuff, if not right away, then at least eventually. Electrolytics dry up, switches and pots get worn/dirty. I've repaired a few pieces, and while it's rewarding, it's a commitment of time. 100% worth it to get it back to spec, though, if it's something you want to use/keep for the long term.
  7. Years ago, when I worked on the bench repairing electronics, I was soldering together two wires that didn't have a good mechanical connection (my fault) and one of the wires popped off and splashed flux in my eye (wasn't wearing my glasses). Luckily, I had contact lenses in. Ruined the lens, but saved my eye. Always wear your safety glasses when soldering.
  8. The pic is unclear. The Vinyl cap could be just a slip-on cover, or have a central threaded post that screws into the insert. Since they call it a cap, I'm guessing the former.
  9. Pdow, McMaster-Carr may have what you're looking for, if you can figure out the thread size/pitch. The threaded posts that remain could have been the threaded post molded into the rubber foot of the speaker. What does the receiver look like? You may be able to remove the post by just unscrewing it, and using a new foot with an integrated threaded post. If the post doesn't want to budge, look for a foot with the correct receiver that will screw onto the post.

    Mike's right. It's SOP for manufacturers to keep a stock of repair parts for post-production products, usually with a policy of support for X number of years. Our company does it for a service period of 10 years (laboratory test equipment), but it could be more or less, depending on the technology and period of relevancy.
  11. Another price drop. These are $300 shipped from Parts Express, and mine are as close to brand new as you can get. Plus I've saved you the parts expense and labor to add the extra gaskets for installation into a La Scala. $180 plus shipping.
  12. *Bump. Someone out there needs these for a project or upgrade.
  13. Unfortunately, shipping is sky-high across the border
  14. Bump for a lowered price. $200 plus shipping.
  15. I have a pair of Eminence Kappa 15Cs for sale. I bought these several months ago intending to install them in my LaScalas, but ended up going with a non Klipsch crossover, so cleaned up and kept my K-33s. I added the suggested additional gaskets to these (for excursion clearance), so saved you the trouble. These are in new/unused condition, except for a quick functional test with music. Send me a PM for a quote. Edit: The drivers are in their original boxes, packed in blow foam. I've packed both of those boxes into an 18x18x18 with bubble wrap. Asking $180 plus shipping.

    A nice loaf of brioche, egg, cream, tiny bit of cinnamon, and VT maple syrup, because ours is the best. I'll fight you, Canada.
  17. It looks like the cap lead had broken in the past, dues to stress, and someone tried to solder onto the remaining nub. They also damaged the cap with excess heat. You're doing the right thing by replacing the lot. A few other sources for caps: HiFi Collective Sonicraft Parts Connexion
  18. His mistake is that reflected sound in music reproduction space is not equal to the reflected sound captured in a music performance space.
  19. Not a bad deal (highest cost is fragile packed). Dependent on box size:
  20. IDK, I don't own K-horns, lol. Seriously, Al K Engineering has a solution using Dave Harris' Eliptrac 400 (contact Dave directly). You'd have to build the frame (plans on Al's website). Volti Audio has an expensive options. Maybe others will chime in with solutions.
