  1. If you're getting scratchiness when turning a conventional analog volume control (not digital) , you should be able to pull the top off and spray Deoxit D5 electronics cleaner into the holes or openings in the level control from inside. Rapidly rotate the knob back and forth to flush out, let dry. You can Google for more videos.
  2. Not sure what's going on with the disturbing carpet on the sides, but they look like factory-built Speakerlab Ks. They can sound awesome, although this pair is kind of rough.
  3. I just refurbed a pair of my buddy's KLF20s with Crites Ti diaphragms and new caps. Great speakers, definitely worth some money if these are in nice condition.
  4. I just had mine serviced. It's a wide stance beauty, really makes a statement with aluminum face and the dark case. Considered to be one of the best sounding vintage monster receivers, and possibly the best sounding vintage Yamaha receiver they made. Love those knobs! Good luck with your sale. I'm nowhere nearby.
  5. I have a couple of those same eqs! Neat units. Good work! 😃
  6. Those ALK attenuators are nice, just keep in mind they're for 8 ohm loads only (like most tweeters we use anyway). ☺️
  7. I bought a couple pairs of these off Ebay to try. I really like Crites Ti diaphragms, but these are half the price at under 30 bucks a pair, and almost anything is better than the blah-sounding shiny poly diaphragms that came with my KLF30s. I've let them break in for a couple days, and I'm liking the sound! Keep in mind, I'm forced to use EQ in my poor room so I usually have to boost bass and treble on any speaker hooked up here. I haven't compared them directly to Crites Ti, but I probably will at some point since I found an extra set of Crites Ti in storage (yay!). For these who want to try an alternative, these are fun and fit perfectly. No affiliation. ☺️
  8. Highly underrated speaker. Pop some new Crites Ti diaphragms in there, do a quick recap, and they will fill a bedroom with great sound and surprising bass. ☺️
  9. I had CF4s V1, thought they were good but sold them since I already had Chorus 2s. I recently found and refurbed a pair of KLF 30 (later model with bracing and non vibrating panels), got rid of the stock poly tweeter diaphragms, and am really enjoying them. As much as the CF series is vaulted, I can see why the upper KLFs have some great things to offer. I like the 3-way design, tall sound stage that doesn't require speaker stands (those CF horns need to be raised up in my opinion), bi-ampable from the rear crossovers (choruses don't offer that) , and those higher end KLF woofers pack a lot of punch with good sized vented magnets. Again, nothing against CF4s, but I'm really enjoying the KLF30s and I'm sure the KLF20s are similar sounding. Long live the Legends! ☺️ Enjoy your new speakers.
