  1. I have a pair of KP-301 IIs that I'm using on our backyard patio, and would like to be able to leave them out during the milder months. I've done a search for protective "bags/covers" to no avail. I have access to an industrial sewing machine, so I could sew a pair of protective covers... anyone done this, and have a suggestion for the best weather-safe material? TIA John Moore
  2. Thanks! I did get it cleaned up enough to use, but the damage was also done to the plastic... I'm still looking for a replacement cup/input panel, but it's not that important (after all, they're the Pro model covered in black cloth- not the prettiest to begin with!).
  3. Thanks for da edjamaction... I'd fall into the category of "Wine length? I thought it was by the barrel... Never mind!" (Insert Emily Litella snort here).
  4. Okay... Someone's going to have to clue in the clueless NOOB here...
  5. I picked up a pair of KP-301 IIA's, and am putting in new caps from Crites... One of the input cups/panels has been rather badly repaired, so I'm in search of a new cup. Thought I'd share this...
  6. Hello, I'm looking for an input panel/cup for a KP model speaker. I have a pair of KP-301's, and one of the cups is badly mangled. I know that almost all of the KP line used the same cups, and that some of the cups from the KG series were the same size. Thanks, John Moore
  7. Randyh: I think it's not so much the attachment points, as it is the sonic character of the metal grills... if you tap them they ring. I built wood frames, and covered them with grill cloth... Much more better! DISCLAIMER: This is not the listening configuration! It's the storage config... They're waiting to roll out into the room when I'm doing the DJ thing for my wife.
  8. So, I picked up a gorgeous pair of KP-301 IIs from jstrid (thanks, again!)... But I was a bit unhappy with the sound in the listening room- they sound great in a large space, or outdoors, but I found them initially fatiguing. I also helped a friend buy a pair of Cornwall's from jstrid, and was falling in love with their sound (especially after installing Bob Crite's B2 crossovers & tweeter kits). I noticed that when I moved the 301's around the room the metal grills would "ring" when I set them down... Tonight I finally removed them & am thrilled with the change! I'll have to build frames for a set of cloth-covered grills soon, but for now- wow!
  9. It's a good thing I decided to add a Speakon connector to the 301's I just picked up... When I opened the first one I took a look at the crossover board and one of the coils was loose, so I pulled the board for inspection and found that not only was the coil loose, but it had a broken wire. The second board had a broken solder connection. It seems that someone decided not to add a zip-tie to one of the coils, figuring that the hot-glue would hold... d'oh! I drilled the board and hot-glued them again, and also added a zip-tie for safety. Oh, and of course I didn't think to take pics until now!! (Double d'oh!) John
  10. Does anyone have a list of the caps & resistors for the KP-301 IIC's? I've just picked up a pair (from Jstrid), and am sure I want to do the updates. I'm thinking I might wait on the titanium tweeter updates, since I already have a set in my KG-4s I could "borrow." TIA John Moore
  11. jimjimbo-thanks for the note. I just listed them yesterday on 4 sites as well as Craigslist, and I recognize that it will take some time for them to sell... I'm not really in a rush, mostly because they sound so nice (but how much time can I really spend in the garage alone?). I have so many other projects to work on right now, so they'll be fine where they are. I wish I could move them into the house, but I have such a narrow living room that they just won't fit & sound great.
  12. Prerich- thanks for the info, but I haven't wanted to do much more than dust them... if they're not moving because of the paint marks & scuffs I'll use Howard's Restor-A-Finish, which is what I use to restore vintage sewing machine cabinets.
  13. I've had these for 6 months... Here's some more pics, with closeups of the 3 areas that are nicked or scuffed: 34Y872: (This shows the paint marks on the top of the right side) 34Y873: (This shows the paint scuff as well as two thin 1/2" long scratches) (This shows the 3/8" long ding in the lower right front)
  14. Thanks for all the feedback... I'll take some better pics of the cabinets. I thought CWO was Cornwall Oak, so I'll update the info. I'm located in Catonsville, MD, and have had them for about 6 months. I don't have the right room in my home for them, so it doesn't make sense to keep them.
  15. These are sold... thanks to everyone for their knowledge & tips! John Moore
