    KP-480s For Sale

    I have a pair of KP-480s for sale. Used occasionally by my church, but now taking up space. These do not seem to have a built-in crossover. $150 each, plus shipping. Pick up in Hixson, TN. KP-480 Specs.pdf
  2. We have 2 different sets of codes. GroomLakes's codex, skips "I" and uses a range for As and Bs, shifting C to 1965. His has been said to have been checked by some at Klipsch for accuracy.
  3. Easy guys. He might not be a troll and might be really concerned about his kids. We started out respectfully, let's stay that way. I worked in the power industry and do not share his concern, but it is his concern.

    ALK Crossovers

    Deano, If I were you, I'd open the CWIIIs and see what sort of crossover they already have. In the last 10 years, Klipsch has moved toward crossovers with steeper slopes and good components. Your CWIIIs may already have such crossovers and thus gain nothing from Al's crossovers.

    Heresy 1's receiver matchup??

    Couldn't you find some old beater KGs or the like for the garage and preserve the Heresies for the house!!??!!
  7. If it is a Klipsch at all, it is a modified Heresy, with a different woofer and a slot port. Show us pics of the innards. What is the crossover "Type"?
  8. It resembles an early Cornwall II knockoff.

    kg 4.2 missing passive radiators

    You could listen to them in the mean time with a plate screwed over the hole for the passive. Even 1/8" luan ply would work. You will lose bass output below 50 to 60 Hz. A plate with a port in it would work just like the passive, if you could get some data from Klipsch, or better yet, a specified port size.

    What kind of Heresy's do I have?

    Technically Heresies, but we often call them Heresy 1.5s. They have the HII squawker. Few are kept that pristine! Enjoy!!!

    kG-1 Mods

    $200 for 4 doesn't sound bad. I doubt they need modification, but new capacitors would be a good idea.

  13. Inserting a resistor is an excellent way to test your new tap settings, but I would not make it permanent. The resistor robs power from the squawker. This simple calculator will help you resize the squawker cap. Use 66 ohms and 600 Hz for the Stock B values and adjust the resistance according to the chart below. http://ccs.exl.info/installation/crossovers-installation-tweaking/crossover-calculators/#first This schematic gives T2A details.
