  1. Yup, cabinets are solid and this version has bracing inside. I have a pair of K55v with solder lugs I could try, but not sure how well they fit the stock midrange horn.
  2. I just swapped in my rebuilt Marantz 2275 vintage receiver, and I'm getting less bright midrange and smoother sound. Apparently its a better synergy for my tastes.
  3. Yes, K-79-K tweeters used ferrofluid. K-75-K is the same tweeter found in Tangent T5000, but with no ferrofluid. I debated whether or not to replace or just remove and leave it out, but I had extra on hand from Parts Express and figured I would replace it so it's the same as before. Perhaps some K-79-K don't have it, can't tell ya there. It was in both pairs from my Chorus 2s and the KLF30s also. In my KG4s, which don't have K-79-Ks, one pair had ferrofluid while one did not. Weird!
  4. Thanks for the suggestion. Sounds easy enough! Where do you order those from?
  5. I meant that the Heresy 2 and Tangent T5000 use the same crossover, to the best of my knowledge. My Tangent T5000 crossover boards are labeled Heresy 2 on the boards themselves. Thanks
  6. Parts Express has good quality, inexpensive higher value electrolytic caps for speaker crossovers. https://www.parts-express.com/68uf-100v-electrolytic-non-polarized-crossover-capacitor--027-356
  7. Thanks, I do have a tube amp I can try with them. I may try biamping also, with a higher powered solid state amp on the woofers and the tube amp on the mids/highs.
  8. I finally got around to recapping with Dayton poly caps for mids and highs, Parts Express house brand electrolytics for the woofers, installing Crites Ti diaphragms, and replacing ferrofluid in the tweeters. I've been letting them crank when I can, to break everything in. The Crites do seem to improve and smooth out after playing a while, in my opinion. Anyways, the mids still seem a little hot for my ears. I'm used to the Tangent T5000 / Heresy 2 sound, which I believe has more midrange attenuation compared to the KLF 30s. They sound very great, don't get me wrong, but I'm in a smaller room and the mids are a little overwhelming with my current gear. What's the best way to reduce midrange level? Do I need the Crites autoformers and new midrange caps? Should I install 16 ohm l-pads from Parts Express? Detailed instructions would be helpful. Thanks!
  9. For a smaller to regular size room, these are really great speakers! Good luck with your sale, I have a pair already. Easy to upgrade crossovers, as well as Crites titanium option for relatively cheap.
  10. What a cool amp! Congrats to the new owner. I'm a fan of Carver amps and preamps also. 😊
  11. I have four woofers from these, if anyone is looking. I pulled them and the altec drivers years ago. The cabinets were trashed and insanely heavy. These have doped fabric surrounds, not foam. I sold the altec parts.
  12. Great receiver, good luck with your search! I had one briefly, but already had a bunch of nice vintage receivers and sold it for a flip. Nice warm sound and lots of punch.
  13. Looking to see what's out there, already rebuilt and all functions working. Looking for something reliable. Thanks!
  14. KG 3.5 / KM 4 are great speakers. I pulled mine out today to listen in the bedroom setup, and I really enjoy their open coherent sound and deep bass! I would just enjoy them, don't feel some huge need to upgrade. These have strengths of their own, especially for their size.
