  1. The K604 has never been produced with mumps? It is just a K602 with a threaded driver mount rather than a mounting flange for a K52 driver/motor assy.
  2. The horns you are comparing are not necessarily comparable... the stock Chorus II horn is a K60X (600Hz) series horn and the Forte III is a K70X (700Hz) series... technically the comparable current replacement would be the lager K603M found in the Cornwall IV or the KPT310HF. If I remember correctly the horn you are trying to replace is a K602? Between the A55G and smaller K703M horn all you are effectively doing by swapping out components is EQing the speaker to potentially suite your own taste? Why not just use an EQ? It would be easier?
  3. I do not recall hearing/seeing anyone confirm it but it would make the most sense for it to be 8ohm...
  4. The A55G didn't exist when I owned my KLF20's but I did throw a pair K55's in there just for sh!ts and giggles... it was different but I would not say it sounded or looked better. The thing to me is that the 55 and 52 excel at completely different things and I would not consider them interchangeable. For a Khorn, La Scala, Belle or maybe older Cornwalls I get it. There is a reason the K55 is used and I could understand the argument that an A55 might be better, though I don't buy it. For models that naturally come with the K52 I think the benefits of either 55 are lost on that model due to their inherent differences. And I can completely understand someone saying the A55 sounds better to them but adjusting the bass/treble might also sound better to that same person... so what does better mean?
  5. 7kHz is the approximate acoustical crossover point between the original midrange driver and the tweeter... neither came to a dead stop at that frequency? So despite the fact that the A55G doesn't go as high as the K52 there likely isn't a gap in response but there is no way to tell without taking a measurement. The K75/79 is generally spec'd to cross between 5-7kHz with little to no change in the tweeter circuit (i.e. Chorus I vs Chorus II). Also, the K75/79 should be good down to at least 2kHz if you wanted to change the crossover point for some reason? You would need add a low pass to the midrange as well as adjust the high pass for the tweeter though. If it were me I would just put the K52 back in?
  6. I have used both the 904 and 942 networks with a 904HF/315LF setup. I'm terrible at describing this type of thing but to me the 904 sounded rounder/fuller and the 942 sounds faster/less bloated? Both 100% require a resistor pad to knock down the HF with my application since they were intended for the 904/940LF. I currently have a 4.5ohm resister on the positive input of the HF circuit... I personally found 5ohm was too much and 3.3ohm was not quite enough... I have thought of going down to 3.9/4ohm but I don't have that value on hand right now. I would think 1-2ohm would be all that is needed to take the edge off of a setup using the 904/940LF? I have also started playing around with an LCR placed between the HF circuit and the HF driver that is centered at about 1600-1700Hz... There was something going on there that appears to correspond with a small impedance spike found in the 904HF (DE 75-8P). My current values are 3mH - 2.7uF - 10ohm I think both networks have their positives/negatives but I have ultimately kept the 942 networks in place... for now?
  7. Why not just use the actual 904 crossover design? or if you wanted you could use the KPT942... which replaces the 50uF with 75uF and the 4.7uF with 6uF (inductor values don't change). I don't have a pic of the schematic for the 942 but I do happen to have the physical network. The 942 was obviously intended to be used with a 402 and not a 510 but it crosses high enough (500-600Hz-ish) to potentially be used with the 510? Stock 904 crosses at 800Hz according to the spec sheet I have, always looked more like 900Hz-ish whenever I played around with it?
  8. Do they have the little circular date stamp/mold on the top/bottom by the flange?
  9. Sounds like they are the same as the 510? Could they be NOS leftover from a previous supplier kind of like the KL series horn tweeters that are on Parts Express???
  10. If I remember correctly, the threaded insert in that assembly fits just about as perfect as can be in the hole left by the stock setup... I don't remember having to drill or modify anything.
  11. I sold the pair ages ago but I replaced the feet on mine with... https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-drfs1-1-3-8-x-1-heavy-duty-rubber-feet-4-pcs--240-712
  12. My first guess would be the inductor value in the LF circuit
  13. The KPT-904-M-B looks correct for the schematic I’ve seen... the KPT-904-M is some what confusing due to its use of the T10A autoformer? That’ll knock the HF down -9dB which seem crazy overkill for std 904 setup. I’ve also never seen a 904 use an autoformer???
  14. Ok, so over time I have ended up with schematics for the 310, 942 & 904. I would still like info on the KPT325 if any one has one? I'm pretty sure it is identical to the 904 but has an additional resistor to pad the HF output a bit (2 or 3 ohms).
  15. I saw your thread about that! I've been wanting to design an adapter that could be 3D printed to more-or-less to the same thing! I have had ZERO time to try and tackle that idea though...
