Klipsch Fanatic

Klipsch Fanatic (6/9)



  1. Also, please post your approximate location. There maybe someone close by that could help.
  2. Award for best joke of the day!!!!!
  3. The back air chamber volume of a La Scala is small already. Reducing it would hurt bass output. Don't.

  5. I have an unproven theory that speakers used often don't need cap replacements as soon as speakers not used much, especially ones stored unused. If your K-horns sound polite and laid-back, perhaps distant, you probably need new capacitors. Your K-horns should sound big, bold, out in the room and lively. I had one H700 from the early 60s that needed new caps and one that didn't. If you have Type AK crossovers, change them to AK-3s. Shop ebay and our Garage Sale section. If you decide to replace the caps, replace them with the exact values your crossovers have and use very high quality film and foil caps. They will be expensive. To a point, your K-horns deserve them. Somewhere around $100 each, you begin to pay for prestige rather than sound. Avoid metalized film caps, they tend to have a subtle, hard edged sound.
  6. All you need to do is match capacitance and make sure to voltage rating is 100V or greater. One hundred volts into 8 ohms is 1250 watts. Yes, most capacitors for sale are electrolytic, because they are cheap and and small. For an audio circuit they tend to (perhaps subtly) change the waveform passing through them more than other caps and that is undesirsable.
  7. I was given a pair of T5Ms and they are my current go-tos.
  8. The K-77-M has the same diaphragm as a T350 and should carry its power ratings of 5 watts continuous/50 watts Peak (program)/100 watts instantaneous (I wouldn't test this). T350 EDS.pdf
  9. I have 2 pair I like quite a lot. Which model?
  10. Check out KG2s and maybe KG3s. Smaller, with a familiar sound.
  11. Not me. Once I got my Integra Pre/pro with internet radio, I quit FM. Other than to test it to be su re it works, my FM section never gets used. OTOH, I have a late '70s Technics receiver driving my H IVs and it often has FM on as as background music.
  12. I enjoy my Heresy IVs and would generally recommend them as first Klipsch. But from what you've been listening to, I'd recommend Fortes, as new as possible.. I have found the IIIs and IVs very pleasant and "real" sounding with roughly another octave of low bass over the H IVs.
  13. TTT. $100 + shipping.
  14. A 6 channel DSP and 3 D-75s should do it. That time alignment thing is worth the trouble.
  15. '70s Japanese amps did have a nice sound to them.
