  1. I am guessing the wood seems ok no separation of plywood. If the woofer dried out good probably just stained so need to change it really if it still works fine. If the wood starts to separateerate you will need to try and fix it or build new cabinet or find one on ebay.
  2. Gt to be something loose inside i would say. Take woofer out and check tightness of the mid driver to horn. Then check all screws inside. The test Klipsch does at factory is low volume it will not trigger that noise i dont think. keep in mind that will void warranty if you open them up.
  3. YES I think the caps should be replaced. Easy to do just get a soldering iron and learn how to solder. Also check the mid range driver washer.
  4. You can get much better ones than those for 2400. For that price should be veneered in walnut or oak and a B model. Those are the ones next to bottom of the line models. Those would be around 1200 to 1500 in my book. Maybe even less depends on whats been done to them. I would pass if you want good ones. But if you want fixer uppers this would be good start I started with similar ones. Put ne veneer on them ne grill cloth.
  5. I think they would work fine. You may have to extend that one wall with some wood. But make sure you seal them into the corners with pool noodles or pipe foam. Vertical and horizontal part of bass horn. How wide is the wall with the arch?
  6. Cant get that link to work??????
  7. I am wondering why it matters???? If you want to buy all USA made stuff it will be hard. Only stuff I know of are whirlpool....Tesla.....Klipsch Heritage. Those would be more than 90% USA Im sure there are more products. Just found this list.

  8. Just like the you tube video of the guy who didnt know anything about setting up K-Horns. Complained and complained then learned he had them set up wrong..lol. What was wrong or what did you do to fix these could be use full for some one else.
  9. I had compression fracture a couple years ago.....Dam that hurt.......but i kept moving every day.....doing exercises.....i knew if i stopped and let it get to me i would never get better. Tell her to keep moving no matter what.
  10. Klipsch Heresy I Speaker Crossover Capacitor Upgrade - Bing video this might help....
  11. 1977 K Horns need crossovers rebuilt. At least the caps bet on that. Do one then test to hear difference. Do you have them sealed into corners good??? I use pool noodles now works better. Dont forget to do the horizontal part of bass horn also. You never said what you were using for source of sound. But 70s HK 430 630 730 930 will make you hear heaven.
  12. Have your rebuilt the crossovers? What year are the K-horns?? You can get a better tweeter from Crites. I did the 4500 hz mod from Crites.
  13. The little square is original woofer inductor. Not used in this mod though.
  14. On your K-Horns i would do the 4500hz mod that does require a different tweeter. Also get new washers for mid range driver I used O-rings. Make sure you got them sealed into the corners I use pool noodles now much better I think. If they sit on hard smooth floor get some furniture gripper's for them also. You can build the crossovers yourself with parts from ''Bob'' or buy whole new ones . I built mine and used new woofer inductor from parts express.
