  1. klipsch engineering had nothing to do with it , the realities during the 70's and 80's warranted cost cutting measures across the entire industry as interest rates were over 20% . yet , PWK still used fir plywood , BB , marine plywood , copper plate badges , expensive grille fabric and veneer while the competition used chip board , vinyl , plastic grilles and badges and cheap speaker fabric to cut their production costs . if you ask me , klipsch engineering did pretty good
  2. the picture above was taken when PWK was experimenting with the 200 wpc LSI speakers , the problem was that the LSI series used regular LS home cabinets , while the LS cabinet was not originally designed to handle 2x the power rating in a commercial setting . -the picture also has nothing to do with the 100 wpc LS for home use which did not resonate at the 50% lower power rating , while experimenting with braces PWK found out that add-on braces caused unwanted reflections in the LS1 bass bin , for that reason , PWK never approved the use of braces in an LS1 or LSI bass bin - instead , effective early 80's , a new LSI cabinet was released with beefed up panels to increase the performance of the LSI bass bin , these advances eventually trickled over to the new LS II series with 1 inch MDF . here is an early 80's LSI cabinet with thicker plywood featuring rounded corners and rounded openings for the mids and tweeter horns
  3. I fail to see what AK has to do with LS1 resonance , and the question was not in any way restrictive ,
  4. 1000$ for khorns was given away
  5. OO1


    Bill Belichick set to leave the Patriots at the end of the season
  6. there always was 2 EV tweeters used by klipsch heads , the 1st the K-77 , because most middle aged adults cant hear past 12-14 Khz , but for the few Boneheads who can hear past 15000 Hz , the 2nd tweeter is the EV-T350 @ 3500 to 23000Hz
  7. your Honda dealer ,has catalogs,of sound parts , 1 advantage is the parts are made to fit the car's interior ,
  8. date range is 1971 through 1976 , a diaphragm kit costs 57 $ each so 100$ off is about right
  9. 1st guess would be late 70's ,closer to 1979 the speakers should have K-77 round magnets , AA crossover -K-55V mids drivers
  10. used + 40 years old K-77 tweeters now sell for more money than new tweeters , and oddly for close to 20 years , cies like Crites and ALK bashed the K-77
  11. the date range would be 1971 through 1979 , the klipsch badges would have helped to narrow the year , but there are none
  12. you're gonna end up with a car full of rattles and irritating vibrations and squeeks
  13. go back to your 1st post , at far right you'll see 3 dots , click on the dots , click on edit ....
  14. make sure to post pictures if you ever stop by
  15. the good news here ..... the K-28 4 Ohms woofer is a drop in replacement for the K-24 8 Ohms woofer and so is the K-107 Titanium large motor tweeter , the K-28 is around 100$ a pop , all this , while keeping the HII crossovers , the K-53 mids driver can be upgraded with a TItanium diaphragm , the end result , more bass , and clear HF.
  16. go back to your 1st thread and read the answer I posted , there is no need to post the same question on several threads
  17. btw their shipping calculator is not working https://www.soundseller.com
  18. no , steer away from aftermarkets , as they do not meet klipsch audio specs which affects the sound of your speakers , contact JEM , they sell klipsch capacitors theaudioroom@verizon.net https://jemperformanceaudio.com/capacitor-kits
  19. it wont just be a noticeable improvement , but a major one , any of the 4 generations of the Forte will do ,although the Forte III and IV are the most advanced
  20. TSCM was not a khorn , it was a Theatre/Cinema speaker
