    Now $275 - KG 5.2 MINNEAPOLIS - awesome 1-owner - perfect!

    Another price drop - now $325 for Klipsch Forum members.
  3. One owner pair in Minneapolis in great condition. 96 dB @ 1 watt, 34-20,000 Hz +/- 3dB. The 34 Hz bass extension without boom and the Tractrix horn coverage are spectacular. I measured the system resonance at 37 Hz, confirming the accuracy of the Klipsch specs. Dropped to $275 w/ Free PayPal for Klipsch Forum members, less than half the $850 MSRP.

Submitted 1 year ago Verified Reviewer I have a pair of the original CF2's ... I have a pair of Quartets , KG4's and. AR3 A's Boston A100's and the l8st go's on. Powered by a factory spec Marantz2270 and Adcom GFA 545 ? drawing a blank. The CF2's are my favorite . they just sound right ! The Quartets and AR3 a's are not far behind. . all are recaped and original components . I listen to jazz , some jazz funk , a little classical and some classic rock . The CF2 is the easy winner and the AR3's are a close second . All outstanding speakers ..but my ears desire the CF2 ... several huests that are also home audio fans have taged the CF2 as having an edge . If i had to sell them all and keep the pair that gave me the most listening pleasure .The Klipsch CF2 would be the keeper. Rated 5 out of 5 stars Still Crankin' My wife bought these for me for my birthday in 1994. Since then we've moved three time and during the last move one of them was dropped on a tile floor. I had no way to test it as all of the other components were already packed. By the time I set them up again, no one could tell which one was dropped, not even me. Luckily it was dropped flat on its back so there is no cosmetic dammage as well. I drive them with a 2-channel Rotel integrated amp that pushes only 65 watts/channel and they sound great. They can still rattle the walls. Dynamic range, soundstage, and coloration are all excellent.

    Lava lamps WHAT is the current latest and greatest?

    Another very cool plasma device is the Lightning 2000 with Xenon gas in a cylindrical sleeve to force the lightning bolts up against the outside glass. Bright White Lightning in a Bottle!

    Looks like a Liquisplode made by Rank in the UK. I installed a bunch in discos in the late 1970's.

    WTB: KLF-C7 or Epic KV4 - Update: SCORE!

    Thanks! Klipsch Parts recommended K-1062-EV, in stock for $102.04 shipped. My original is K-1021-KN neodymium, so that's what I prefer for acoustic compatibility, but those are unobtanium... The CF2 cabinets are nice so I would hate to part them out!

    WTB: KLF-C7 or Epic KV4 - Update: SCORE!

    Hi Guys - All I really need is one woofer to replace a blown CF2 woofer so I can sell them fully operational. Is the KLF-C7 driver the same as CF2/KV4? I have PayPal... Thanks, Steve
