  1. I can imagine the lucky dude - it is like a time capsule to the late seventies -
  2. there was a dual k55v in one of the MCM 1900 , I think , 2 k55v or k55M on a dual throat - really amazing sound - No, If the MCM-1900 stack is an early stack, either 3-way or 4-way, they came with a large single Gause driver, later models came with FOUR K-55 drivers mated to a K-260 horn with a 2 inch throat, not Two K-55 drivers as you mention, as well as the 2 inch throat K-400 horn on TSCMs, which also have FOUR K-55 Drivers and can be K-55m OR K-55V in either push pin or solder terminal. Roger thanks Roger - which was the klipsch pro speaker or HF sections that had 2 K55V on a single horn -
  3. Curious about how that works -- what about that particular driver makes it "the best"? Curious about how that works -- what about that particular driver makes it "the best"? I will clarify - it is a brand new unused 1960's K55V - that 's it - by best - I meant unused

  8. how is the sound on these drivers vs the original driver k63 - can you enlighten as to the improvements -

  14. The new PD5 IS the K-55-X, they are the same driver. Though the current driver has soldered terminals, it has a single phase plug and is identical to the original driver with the spring loaded terminals. Many are now assuming that since the new driver has the soldered lugs, that it is the same design as the driver that saw very limited use in the early 80s - it is not. The dual phase plug version of the K-55-V was quickly replaced by the EV K-55-M, which is basically the same driver from a performance perspective. I don't know how long Klipsch used the dual phase plug Atlas PD5-VH/K-55-V, but it wasn't long - maybe even only a year.The K-400 (as well as the 600 & 700) collapse the verticals and provide enough "squeeze" to get the response up to 5.8kHz. There is a sharp drop in response that begins a little after 4kHz, before quickly recovering and then rapidly climbing back up to nearly 6kHz. When Klipsch released the dual phase plug version, PK didn't think the improvement in performance would be noticed by most. I can hear it, but it's subtle. People saying that better performance can be had by dropping the crossover point are over simplifying things a bit, and are forgetting that though PK had numerous opportunities to do this, he didn't. There is also a vast difference between a first order midrange filter that uses an autoformer and what Klipsch is currently doing -- a lower crossover point using steep filters with NO autoformer for the purpose of getting better phase behavior and producing better polar response. Changing a capacitor value and adding a coil doesn't do either of those things, in fact, the phase response gets worse, and the sonic signature is now dominated by the tweeter instead of the midrange, at least, that's what I hear. I stand corrected as that was my assumption that the soldered pins terminals were the dual phase plug - out of 10 k55V I own -the best K55V is from the sixties , the serial number is under 3000 - push pin -
  15. there are 3 metal horns for the k700 - 1) The early k700 with very- very thick castings like these -4 screwholes http://www.ebay.com/itm/FIRST-GENERATION-Klipsch-K-700-horns-3-TIMES-THICKER-HEAVIER-no-RING-distortion-/291296247331?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43d29bfe23 2) the second series k700 with thinner castings - 4 screwholes as well - http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-KLIPSCH-K-700-METAL-MIDRANGE-HORNS-PAIR-HERESY-SPEAKERS-K55-ATLAS-K55V-/191506647575?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c96af8a17 3) the 3rd series k700 with thinner castings - 8 screwholes vs 4 - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pair-of-VINTAGE-Klipsch-K-700-Thick-Metal-Midrange-Horns-for-Heresy-Cornwall-/181613432063?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item2a49010cff&nma=true&si=nR0StYDbxF5fyJfgVZE%252FesFGUzo%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  16. Yes he seems unstable. Imagine being neighbors with a guy like that? you would have to move
  17. Excellent work - and all the floors and walls are so straight -if you campare this to prefab trailers - there is no comparison-
  18. - same for all of us here - good luck
  19. just a guess - the fact that they would go to a good home is what seemed to be more important to the family , money was not the main issue -
