  1. What is the crossover point from woofer to squawker in a KLF-30? Mumphs are intended to maintain dispersion at the lower end of the horn's frequency range. If the KLF crosses too high, there won't be any difference.
  2. Thanks!! Canada!? I am not surprised at the PX connection. Nashville/Madison is 40 miles from Ft. Campbell. Wonder what happened to their mates?
  3. No, you turn the volume control Down at the first hint of distress, brittle sound or distortion regardless of the receiver's power output. This applies to ALL speakers, not just Klipsch. Buy all the quality you can stand. A home theater receiver worth having is not cheap. Look at Sony ES, Marantz, better Yamahas, Integra and good Denons. Accessories4less often has good prices on B-stock and refurbs. The power you need depends on your room size. But, because of the inability of home theater receivers to deliver rated power to all channels at once, start you search at 100 watts and higher.
  4. You're at the most difficult and detailed portion of a speaker's design. It takes testing, knowledge and trial and error. Were I you, I'd replace the K-55 with an Altec/Great Plains Audio 902-8*, damp the 511B and lose the tweeter. I'll give you a design I did for the 902/511B that was pretty flat and pulls it down to 104 dB/w/M and crosses at 1 kHz. The low pass is for an FH-1 and won't work with your 904-LF.

  6. Mr. Jim, I almost hate to ask and be bothersome, but now, I'm curious. I bought my La Scalas from a nervous gentleman in Madison, TN that flipped audio gear, it turns out. He worried me to death over the 3-day return period we have. It took me that long to realize they were mismatched, but I felt so blessed I didn't care! One is 28W186 and the other is 29X610 (with K-55-M and Type AL network). The first Klipsch I heard were late '70s Klipschorns, with Belle Klipsch rears in a Quad system (😨). So, I went backward to make them match. Klipsch built me a new Type AA network for the X model and I found a K-55-V driver in one of those obscure pro audio shops that cater to the music industry. What can you tell me about mine?

    That sounds like a calibration or connection error.
  8. Check out the Garage sale section below and repost there. It might take a while, but you'll find a set.
  9. Yes, I have seen such a warning and it was real. It was on a Telarc recording of the 1812 Overture. The dynamic range was extreme and the boom from the cannon is capable of plopping your woofer cones onto the floor if you use too much power. Like turntable rumble, ultra low frequencies, that your speakers can't reproduce, can still damage the woofers.
  10. One of mine is 29X610, not quite 1000 units newer than yours. It came with a K-55-M and Type AL crossover. It didn't stay that way as the first squawker I found was a K-55-V, so I went backward. Somewhere between 1981 and X (1982) the transition was made.

    I've got six 1911 pattern pieces. Want something different. But since I'm most comfortable with Condition 1 carry, a CZ came to mind.

    LOL! It's called DWX. Most likely a compact. If I can find one.
