  1. Thanks. I'm currently running some shipping numbers for a guy in NV... I don't know if it's because I'm out of touch or what but I swear every time I go to ship something like this out it always ends up costing like double what I was expecting?!
  2. I don't tend to listen to music all that loud so I would say that most of my impressions are going to by at low or moderate volumes... I'm pretty rubbish at describing stuff like this too... Overall I just felt like the 3way 335s sounded more natural and had/has slightly better top end? But my preferences can seem to go against the norm, or at least what I see most everyone else doing. Obviously I prefer the 3way over the 2way with the 510. I definitely preferred crossing the 510 higher (800-1kHz) rather than lower (500Hz) when I did try the 2way. I actually even preferred the K603/K70G combo in 2way over the K510/K69 too?
  3. 1. What do you mean by "silver (not black)"? If it's just painted vs unpainted then I wouldn't worry about but if there are other, more extreme, physical differences then I would maybe hold off? 2. The screen is basically a bug/dust shield. It isn't needed but I have never seen one of these drivers without it? I have seen the K52H with and without a screen though. The difference is audible but not drastic and only really affects the very top end. 3. I have never seen any released specs for the driver but I also have never seen a part number for the driver on it's own.
  4. Bought these to compare them to the KPT-335 HF/MF’s I already had and preferred the 3way 335’s... figured I would list them here before going to eBay. I would say that they are in very good shape but they have obviously been used. Tried to show any blemishes in the photos. Located in south Kansas City and asking $500+shipping. Will be boxing them up as soon as I’m done with this listing.
  5. Either this guy had more than one pair or the 1st buyer didn’t work out... listing is $380 buy it now w/ $60 shipping https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F123972481341

    Single KPT-335-B/M

    I had wondered about an Eminence H2EA as an in-a-pinch sub for the K510 for this application... haven't gotten around to buying a pair though If you wanted to go 2 way you could use the K703/K70G on top of a K48 in a Chorus enclosure with a simple KPT310 crossover, until another 510 materializes? I did something similar for a while? I personally wouldn't suggest a K510/K69 2way unless you were using a K691/DE750 though even then I would say I preferred the 3way.

    To support what I was saying about he midrange being the low point, here are the active setting per Klipsch. This also, pretty adequately, displays the difference I was referring to in the bass bins (904 v 315). I would still keep in mind though that preference and application do still play a roll...

    Single KPT-335-B/M

    I am going to disagree with this on a few levels... from what I could tell, the tweeter was left a bit hot to compensate for the intended screen but only a few dB. Replacing the 2ohm resistor in that circuit with a 4.5-5ohm (2-3dB reduction) does the trick just fine. Also, the KPT335 (or at least mine) had a sticker on the back stating that, when used with a KPT-904/940 LF cab, the 904/940 cab would be 3dB louder and that output difference would need to be accounted for? In theory this would mean that when used with 904/940 you mid band is actually too low, though lowering the tweeter output may still be all that is needed, preference depending. Also, knowing what I know about the stock network and the ALK CSW you referenced, I would NOT in any way recommend the ALK as an adequate sub. 335 Spec sheet:

    Single KPT-335-B/M

    I would say that the 335's are everything I had hoped to achieve in all of my attempts to modify my Cornwalls... though I do wish they were more aesthetically appealing and came in a slight smaller footprint.

    KPT-335 HF/MF

    Looks like it’s now $225...

    Single KPT-904

    Appears to be an old version? The K510 looks a bit odd/off? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Klipsch-Professional-Cinema-KPT-904-THX-Dual-15-Audio-Video-Subwoofer-B-C-Dri/202650834932?hash=item2f2eee57f4:g:XFcAAOSwOZNcrlBH

    KPT-335 HF/MF

    KPT-335 HF/MF ~ HF = K703 w/K70G, MF = K510 w/K69A https://www.ebay.com/itm/Klipsch-K-510-Tractrix-Horn-K-703-Tractrix-Horn-Setup-from-KPT-335-KPT-904/303130024666?hash=item4693f51ada:g:xMIAAOSw7SRcuNaW Also, even though he doesn’t appear to be taking offers I bet if you emailed him one he would consider it...
  13. I personally gave up on Crown a long time ago... I’ve owned several including various XLS, D150, DC300 and a PS400... didn’t really care all that much for any of them
  14. Something else I forgot to mention... while I was playing around with the 2way setups I did also test out a few different crossover configurations/points... again, the stock 800-900ish Hz won out. I absolutely did not care for the output when either driver was pushed to the horns 500Hz limit.
  15. Per the Chief, the K691 is a DE75 with a slight mod to the diaphragm... though not confirmed, what I’ve heard is that the diaphragm is hardened? I’m not sure exactly how that affects the output/response of the driver but the DE75 is a fairly well regarded driver in its own right so for my purposes I considered it close enough.
  16. For my part I will say that I did end up buying a preowned pair of B&C DE75s. I now know that they aren't exactly K691s but they were cheap and I was really only using them for testing purposes, so they are close enough. Switching back and forth was a HUGE hassle and I really wanted to enjoy my new speakers so I only did so much testing but here are my notes: *The K69A had significantly more energy/output above, we'll say, 5K... I don't remember the exact #. This would absolutely affect the crossover design so right off the bat I would say that the K691 isn't a plug and play replacement in this application. This increase in output/energy had a definite impact on the driver assessment in a 2way setting. *I didn't much care for the K69A in the 2way test. It needed a lot of EQ for the response to flatten out and to start sounding ok. *The DE75 absolutely looked/sounded better than the K69A in the 2way test but after all was said and done, I preferred the 3way... *I did try the DE75 out in the 3way but didn't like it as much as the K69A but that is to be expected since the crossover network was designed for use with the K69A. With a corrected network it would likely work fantastically but I'm not going to get into all that at this time. *KPT-335 with stock drivers was my preference at the end of the day. Though I did make one change... I'm guessing that because this speaker was designed to be place behind a screen the tweeter was left a bit on the hot side, so I replaced the 2ohm pad resistor in the tweeter circuit with a 4.5ohm I had lying around.

    Single KPT-335-B/M

    So, this listing was pulled because one of my cabs was damaged in shipment and they are sending me the cab from this unit to replace my damaged one... I'm not sure how they'll list them but I would be on the look out for the crossover, woofer and horns/drivers.
  18. I have posted 310 and 942 in the crossover thread... still looking for 325 mostly but all varieties are welcome
  19. Nikki Beta II is an awesome pre! I have 2 and both have been completely refurbished! The Beta 40 is also very nice if you see one! Had multiple Crown amps and never enjoyed any of them with my various Klipsch... you could check out a Nikki Alpha II but everyone I’ve seen recently needs extensive work... if you really think you need the wattage there is also the 440/450 though the internal wiring on the odd series (230/450) isn’t quite as good.
  20. I guess I’m kind of lost on the 1.9” cause I feel like final alignment would have more to do with the destination than the point of origin? I mean aren’t we mechanically talking about triangles and then acoustically talking adjusting that with phase? IDK, maybe I’ve had too many beers to be responding right now? I will say this sh!t can be fickle because I just changed the toe-in on the head and it has dramatically changed perception! Center to center my speakers are rather close together at 80” I sit about 160” away... I previously had the heads toed in about 1.5” measuring from the edge of the cab back to the edge of the TM motorboard and have adjusted that, only slightly, to roughly 1.25”. I guess my tought would be that you can only use any given theory to a logical mean but can’t really control the inevitable outcome... room/positioning I feel like this has wondered off into left field...
  21. I was going to suggest a Technics SU-9070... but then everyone start talking about mixers and now I’m not sure I’m on the same page...?
  22. I don’t have time right now to transcribe it but the crossover is effectively... LF input - 2nd order LP - Driver MF input - 2nd order LP, 11ohm pad, LCR, 3rd order HP - Driver HF input - 2ohm pad, 4th order HP - Driver VC on the K70G/K703 and the K69A/K510 appear to be offset by only 1/4-3/8” which seems like at least a good start? I did give these a shot in a 2way arrangement with just the K69A/K510 but it didn’t look anywhere near as flat as the 3way...
  23. It really bothers me that the center channel is from a different series... and also wholly unnecessary It very much seems like $600 in actual speaker parts and $4,400+ in woodwork, which is kind of a very specific/hard sell? Donors appear to be a pair of professional KI362 (not KG) though an older KP is more likely due to the midrange driver... and a pair of KG.5 sans one tweeter... I would have said the center was a KV but the woofers are definitely KG
  24. I've done a good bit of research on these drivers but have yet to find what I was looking for... What I know... K69 = B&C DE75-8 P.Audio BMD750 K69A = P.Audio BMD750 *It would appear the "A" is a revision and was meant to replace the K69 fit/form/function. Driver may or may not have been modified? Driver was modified. K691 = B&C DE75-? *Again it would appear the "1" is another revision. Driver is a new version of the DE75 and is definitely modded to some extent? This driver was at one point sold as an upgrade for the K69A but is now the std driver where applicable. *At some point in the mix, the standard B&C DE75-8 driver appears to have been used without K69X/Klipsch badging per numerous images/eBay listings. What I am curious about... I have seen at least one person state that the B&C driver does sound slightly better than the P.Audio but this was in reference to a 2way setup. I have recently acquired a pair of 3way KPT-335 and was wondering if this driver might be an upgrade in my setup as well? The 2 drivers really appear to be very similar and this may just boil down to a personal preference but I would like to know what other people think. I am also curious if any one knows anything about crossover changes that might coincide with the K69 revisions. I have physically seen 2 iterations of the KPT-335 crossover (116663 Rev ? and Rev and the only difference I saw was board layout. Thanks
