  1. Congrats on the new owner. Has anyone compared these to K55M? Just curious! Thanks
  2. Great speakers, very solid also. GLWS!
  3. He literally raised his price 450 while I was in the middle talking to him. Ummm okay lol good luck with that.
  4. The standard stand arrived today. Love it! Thanks again for the heads up.
  5. I re-did one of my KG4 woofer surrounds years ago with a foam surround. It worked fine. I sold that pair, the new owner didn't mind the difference. I don't recall which one I used, though. I know it's not optimal looks-wise, but it's an option if you can find the right size.
  6. Dang that's a big boy! Did you measure from the feet rather than the case itself? Maybe the feet would rest on it without going over? I bought this for my older Parasound HCA-2200ii which I believe is less deep.
  7. I just bought one of the amp stands on sale. Thanks for the heads up! They were out of the XL, but the standard one is rated for 150 pounds which is plenty lol.
  8. Thanks, I'm certainly open to incorporating well-made resistors in the future! I briefly compared one speaker with the stock resistor and another with the Mundorf MR10 of the same 22 ohm value. I couldn't really tell a difference at the time, so figured I may as well just keep the Mundorf in both since it wasn't hurting the sound! I don't doubt that moving up to a higher-end resistor would improve things further.
  9. These are in a carpeted bedroom, with a bed and pillows on the opposite wall. So not really much in the way of side absorption. Good suggestions!
  10. An Update: After a lot of cranking the speakers the past few weeks, as well as some cable and amp swaps, I'm appreciating the midrange at stock levels. I did try replacing the stock 22 ohm resistor with a 33 ohm Mundorf, but it kind of sucked out the midrange. I did order a pair of 22 ohm Mundorf resistors also, and I decided to install those in place of the stock ones. Maybe the new resistors sound better? Lol probably not, but I do think the caps and/or Crites Ti might have broken in some also. I did swap in a nice 80 watt 1990s Yamaha Stereo receiver with an adjustable loudness contour, and I'm getting a real synergy with some use of that. I thought maybe the Dayton caps were too dull initially, but now I'm getting good detail without too much brightness. Thanks for all the input! I may eventually pull the midrange horns and coat the backs with silicone for additional damping.
  11. Congrats! My pair is black also, nothing wrong with that. I'm sure they sound great. What are you powering them with?
  12. I recently found a Marantz 2210 (10 watts per channel) with the wood case locally, and I'm floored at how sweet it sounds with my KLF30s in a smallish room. All of these older Marantz will need some settings adjusted for optimal sound (bias, DC offset) as well as possibly new capacitors or transistors. The 2220 or 2230 share the same capacitor coupled design and sound great with Klipsch. I like the big boys also! My recapped 2330B is a favorite but Klipsch don't need nearly that much power. Hard to really go wrong with these vintage Marantz, just make sure to check the functions beforehand. Have fun!
