  1. RIP Larry. As one of the “Knights of the Round Table”, Larry was a real asset to this forum and the loss is another chapter in the passing of an era.
  2. I have a spare vintage Alnico round head k77 tweeter for sale. Excellent condition, works perfectly, DCR reading of 6.2ohms. $90 shipped in US, with PayPal payment. Thank you.
  3. I have an extra single Faital Pro HF104 tweeter compression driver - new, never used. 108db sensitivity, 80 watts, 8ohms. Neo magnet. Standard tweeter horn mounting. Bought for extensive component testing years ago, but this one got left out completely. $110 shipped in the US, payment through PayPal. Thank you.
  4. I have one pair of Faital Pro HF108 tweeter compression drivers. Never used, 8ohm, 109db sensitivity, 120 watts handling. Neo magnet. Mounting is standard and same as the lower HF line, B&C hf compression drivers, etc. These are a top of line, ultra sensitive, high power tweeter drivers that are usually matched with a very high end system on a number of available horns. Great for high end Klipschorn mods or use in professional custom builds with Klipsch professional series setups. I purchased these several years ago and used one in about 30 minutes worth of controlled tests, then put back in the original box. $235 shipped US for the pair with PayPal. Thank you.
  5. SOLD Pair of Eminence APT-200 Super Tweeters for sale . Virtually no use as new. One was used in testing for a couple of hours. These 8ohm tweeters have the large bi-radial lenses and deliver ~ 103db sensitivity with frequency range of 3500hz-20khz. Can be crossed as low as 3500hz. Many use these as set top tweeters on top of Klipschorns or LaScalas. These are pretty good sounding tweeters at any price and a real bargain in my opinion. $70 plus shipping for the pair via PayPal. SOLD Thanks!
  6. Looking to build a 60” version of Claude’s outstanding quarter pie (half a Klipsch MWM) and don’t see his thread here. Am I missing it? Does anyone have the plans for the 60” version? Thank you in advance.
  7. Langston - outstanding contribution to this forum! autoformers vs resistors - efficacy? Power loss, distortion, cost, etc. I did a fair amount of testing years ago on a number of things, but only one involving the question of resistors - and then a very simple test. I built two identical crossovers designed to deliver a 400hz midrange cross point - but gave one the swamping resistor autoformer treatment, (with corresponding capacitor) and the other no swamping resistor, (with corresponding capacitor). Running controlled full test sweeps on Klipschorns with all drivers running on the full network with amplifier setting locked, there was a significant difference, maybe 3db in output from the speaker between the two crossovers across the entire midrange. Very, very little impact response variance was measured. In any event, the swamping resistor crossover produced about 3db less output across the range. At the time, I laughed to myself because Bob Crites, a consummate gentlemen in every respect, described the difference as sounding like “someone put a sock in it.” Of course the issues raised by this thread are much broader than the question of resistors used for impedance swamping. In any event, given the migration over the decades of apparently all speaker manufacturers, including Klipsch, to the full resistor-based attenuation approach, I too have wanted to get more insight and understanding of the potential advantages and disadvantages. One thing is clear to me and to Roy’s credit, Klipsch heritage speakers with the latest passive, steep slope, resistor-based networks have never sounded better I’m my opinion. Great thread!
  8. I have one Crites type A crossover for sale. I purchased this new about 7-8 years ago while testing various crossovers and drivers. Probably has 5-6 hours of use from measurement and listening testing. So, this is several years old, but basically new. Kept in storage, but I’m cleaning out some extra parts. This is the same crossover with Sonicaps they now sell as the “Gold” edition. Pretty straightforward item, but feel free to shoot questions. $175 shipped with PayPal. SOLD Thanks.
  9. One original k-700 metal horn available. Great condition. $50 plus $15 shipping.
