    Horn Lover? Maybe it's time to go straight...

    Highly interesting, this thread. Actually, given the right "walls", one should be able to reach a very high efficiency, i.e. very small speaker size and input energy...

    About to buy stored K- horns

    Sorry, I missed your question. No relation, just same name! Cheers
  3. Hi, K-horn owners! I am from Istanbul, long-time Heresy and La Scala owner, thinking to add a pair of long-stored Klipschorns from the authorized dealer to my collection.. It turned out they were produced in 1992. I was hoping they were produced after 2001, or even 2005, having read the modifications made on the network, the cabinet and also squawk and tweeter in these years (see: www.klipschcorner.com/heritage/KlipschornTimeline . Can anybody say anything about how these modifications effect the overall sound? The dealer is asking a lot for these long-stored Khorns, so I am curious if I should wait and see if I can get hold of a pair produced after 2001 or even 2005.

    Could someone tell me which year these K-horns were built? The serial nrs are 318 299 550 and 551. Crossover is AK-3, squawk is K-55M.

    Khorns vs La Scalas

    Well, regarding "slowness": The K-horn, due to its size and design, sends out more bass energy into the room than a La Scala does (at the same amp output power) In fact, with a K-horn the room walls act as direct extensions of the woofer. If the room walls, floor, ceiling are not "solid enough", or if the room has a lot resonating material, there can be an "undesirable slowness"in the sound (less damping, late subsiding). On the other hand, pure bass, as it comes out the speakers, should be slow. This we could call the "desirable component" of the slowness. ( rumbling). A "high fidelity" reproduction of a bass sound should always be "slow".. Like the rumbling sound earthquake.. What I am saying, is, the better the bass reproduction of a speaker, the important is to have a "solid" room and furniture choice, in order to eliminate "unwanted slowness".
  8. Hey, well said indeed!!
