  1. Yeah, they are the same horn basically... but the KLF10/CF1 tweeter horn only allows a standard 3 bolt Klipsch tweeter motor to be attached to it where as the KLF20/23/CF2 horn has an industry standard 1-3/8"-18 mount
  2. And here are some close ups on VC former variations... 1. The standard and most common I've seen. Definitely Klipsch 2. Possibly a later variation or maybe aftermarket? 3. Crites replacement part I've seen others but
  3. Between the two I would likely vote Quartet... I had a pair of KLF20's and wasn't a huge fan? Though many people enjoy them... That said, if I ever came across them for the right price, I have still considered buying a pair of KLF10's and swapping out the K100K tweeter assy with a K703 horn and the driver of my choosing...
  4. Pretty sure they made a Tangent that used the same tweeter and drivers but had ports instead of the passive radiator... can't remember the model though
  5. I should also add the H in K52H is for Heppner just like the E in K33E is for Eminence. Those K52H's are the earliest usages of that driver/motor.
  6. Well K52 is basically the designation for the 1.5" motor (phase plug, diaphragm, magnet) assy used with various horns in the K-52-K, K-53-K, K-57-K, K-58-K, K-59-K, K-61-K and K-62-K. The K52H refers to that motor coming with a snout that allows you to mount it to a 1" horn. There are also, to my knowledge, 2 versions of this snout... the older metal one that allows it to be mounted to the early horns with a 5/8" throat/inlet (K600, K700) and the later resin composite/molded one that was used when mounting it to horns with a more current 25mm throat/inlet (K703 in the KLF and the K604T in various Pro speakers). Most of the old diaphragms with the dual spade terminals are all about the same though I have noticed slight variations in VC former material. You have to go WAY back to when the phase plug was separate from the diaphragm to get some very obvious differences. Oh, and there were also 2 versions of the phase plug and the motor it self changed some time in the 90's (I think) to add some volume to the area behind the diaphragm (I can't for the life of me remember what that space is called right now). I should take some pictures...
  7. If you are building a new box you should try to pick up a pair K90 or K100 tweeters out of the CF-1 or KLF-10 respectively. If you can get them cheap enough they have a way better horn. Obviously switching to a Ti diaphragm is always suggested though some still prefer the original phenolic.
  8. These are new OEM product being offered online through SimplySpeakers same as the Ti replacements 127122. They actually seem to be built the same as the Ti diaphragms just with a phenolic material. Same terminals, same flat copper ribbon leads, same VC former... these may be negligible changes but I was still curious? I should also point out that I have no idea how long they have been produced like this, it may and likely has been for some time? I just recently noticed.
  9. Has anybody purchased these to replace their old diaphragms? It looks like they've updated the build (vendor?) and was wondering if it has any positive or negative impact on the performance? Thanks
  10. I was actually curious how many drivers were tested during the creation of the data used on Crites site? The frequency response and THD numbers shown between the K55 & A55 seem so similar it wouldn't be hard to chock up any perceived performance increase to a margin of error if it was just a one to one?
  11. I've never seen an A55G in person but if it was built to replace the K55/PD5VH I would imagine it has the same 11/16" (I think it's supposed to 5/8" but it measures a bit bigger) exit and if it does it is 3/16"-1/4" smaller than the K703 horn entry found in the KLF20/30... so aside from the 2-3db loss you may also end up with some unwanted audio artifacts/anomalies from the horn/driver mismatch in that application? I know before the A55G was available, I tried out a couple K55V's in some KLF20's I had a while back and didn't think the combination sounded quite right...
  12. I apologize for the (very) late reply... I do not get on this site a whole lot and only get sporadic/inconsistent email notifications from it... Yes, these are still for sale
  13. I actually use one of these in between my CD player and preamp because the output is on the hot side... it's a handy little thing to have
  14. Not sure if this was understood from the way everyone's talking but this auction is for 2 of the assemblies pictured... so 2x K510/DE75, 2x K402/K1133 & 2x HF crossovers... I did also ask the seller about the crack seen on the K402 pictured but didn't get a response as to the condition of any of the other 5 assemblies....?
  15. Haven’t had much time for these lately but I did remount the mid horns flush and there was a noticeable improvement in sound... I also ran the tweeter signal to the old input terminals and a put a K704T/D202TI combo on top
  16. Just as another an update... I ended up making this a 2-way with a K703+D202Ti Tweeter and K28E woofer... used the crossover from a KPT-1201 as a starting point Sounds quite nice, better than I expected
  17. With a little crossover work you can make anything work, though you would still have to tackle the mounting issues? The original question was in regards to whether the K76 (by extension the K75/K79) could be used as a direct swap/drop in for the K77 so that was really more of what I was answering... I put K79's in a pair of HII's that had K22's and I'm pretty sure it sounded just fine? I don't remember what all I did to the crossover though? I currently have pair of junk boxes that are running D220TI's on K704T horns, K55's on K703 horns and have K28E woofers, so there are lots of possibilities.
  18. Unfortunately no, they are also quieter... If I remember correctly the K75/K79/K107 is roughly 3db down and the K76 is 6-7db down. This is likely one of the reasons they never replaced the K77 in the La Scalla or Klipschorn, because the above mentioned tweeters definitely cost less to manufacture.
  19. I've found some info scattered in various posts but thought it might not hurt to try and collect it all in one place... Basically I'm looking for contact info for Klipsch Pro/Cinema vendors/distributors people know of or have dealt with personally. I myself would like to purchase a pair of KPT-310-HF some time in the near future. I know this isn't much but it is what I am looking for at this time and I'd have to imagine that there are/will be others like me that are curious about purchasing various new components and could use the information as well.
  20. Where did you get the diaphragms? I've seen QC issues like excessive glue cause stuff like this to happen.
  21. Yes, I've seen it done but it is not a drop-in mod... 1. The cut out isn't quite right and would need to be slightly enlarged 2. You'd have to cut the top and bottom of the horns mounting flange and drill new mounting holes to make it fit 3. You'd have to at least slightly adjust the crossover network (K77 is louder than the K76) You can also contact Klipsch about getting a replacement diaphragm? People seem to forget this is an option some times... They used to sell them for about $50ea. I would pass on pretty much all of the aftermarket diaphragms.
  22. I've actually been wanting to try out a KPT-310-HF/KPT-310-N2 setup with these boxes... Not sure where to order the parts though?
