  1. Wish they were local. I would take on a project like that for the price.
  2. First pic is actual item. 2nd and 3rd pics are stock photos. The cabinets were completely sanded and stripped down to the bare wood and refinished. They look almost like new. Located in DFW area. Pickup only.The kg3.2's single 8-inch woofer has a polystyrene cone, a 20-ounce magnet, and a rubber surround. The speaker's low-frequency output is augmented by a 10-inch passive radiator mounted on the front panel below the woofer. The passive radiator contributes an effective output from its rated 36-hz cutoff frequency up to about 100 Hz. In previous systems in the kg line the passive radiators were located in the rear, but Klipsch engineers found that front-mounting produced better coupling with the output of the kg3's driven woofer.At 1,800 Hz there is a crossover to a horn-loaded, ferrofluid-cooled dome tweeter, with an 18-dB-per-octave slope to the tweeter and a 12-dB-per-octave slope to the woofer. T. The cabinet measures 24-1/4 inches high, 13-7/9 inches wide, and 11-1/4 inches deep, including the removable black cloth grille, and each speaker weighs 31 lbs.SPECIFICATIONS• DIMENSIONS: 25.5" (64.8cm) x 12.4" (31.5cm) x 10.75" (27.3cm)• ENCLOSURE MATERIAL: Medium density fiberboard construction (MDF)• ENCLOSURE TYPE: Bass reflex via passive radiator• FREQUENCY RESPONSE: 36Hz-20kHz(+-)3dB• HIGH FREQUENCY HORN:90x60 Exponential Horn• NOMINAL IMPEDANCE: 8 ohms• POWER HANDLING: 65 watts maximum continuous (325 watts peak)• SENSITIVITY: 94dB @ 1watt/1meter• TWEETER: K-84-K 1" (2.54cm) Phenolic dome compression driver• WEIGHT: 32 lbs. (14.5kg)• WOOFER: K-1002-K 8" (20.32cm) ICG cone active / KD-101-K 10" (25.4cm) ICG cone passive radiator
  3. Looks like a good price on these. Too bad it's going to a local buyer only because these would be a nightmare to ship.

  5. One of the best high-power transistor amps from the 70s. Many have stated that this amp is a "10 most influential" amps ever made and this one indeed did influence many designs. All original components. Everything works. I put some contact cleaner on the volume pot to clean up the sound when adjusting volume and it's perfect now. Condition is a 9/10 with a couple of small scratches on the front faceplate. This amp is HEAVY, so shipping will have to be calculated. $700 obo
  6. Thanks for the referral. I took the LaScalas plus quite a few other speakers I was selling out to The Pilgrimage and I sold them to another forum member at The Pilgrimage.
  7. I just sold an RC-7 earlier this week. Brand new in the box, never used. Sat for a few years in storage. What did you spend on the one you got?
  8. I have a Nissan Rogue with a trailer hitch. I was debating which speakers to put in the back of the Rogue vs what to put in the enclosed trailer. Knowing they will fit in the Rogue I'll plan to transport the LaScalas in the back of the Rogue because I feel they will be better protected in there.
  9. Very good to know. I just bought the Parts Express kit to measure T/S values. If I get a speaker that doesn't match what's published....sending it back. What do you think about the MOFO driver from MCM that I mentioned?
  10. I didn't know that was you! Awesome. I know they will work out great for you. Hope you can get that other one for the center.
  11. I just sold these today. I didn't have a chance to do anything to them other than wipe them off with a wet rag. I did get the badge that I ordered from eBay for $15 and glued it on. I had them listed on Dallas Craigslist for $450 and got an offer for $400. The guy listened to them, liked them and gave me $400. Thanks for the suggestions of the price range. It sold for just about what most had thought they would.
  12. Really appreciate the offer. But with the MOFO-152 having solid response down to 24hz with insane power handling I shouldn't need any more.
  13. Thanks for the offer. I have a calibration mic already that I use when I set up DSPs in a room. I'm an AV engineer in my real job and speaker enthusiast as a hobby. I normally use the mic with a pc based spectrum analyzer. This will be an interesting addition.

    What I Got Today!

    My new coffee mug!
  15. Yes they were Is and not IIs. But like a car, the biggest hit in value is when you drive it off the lot. 10 years old vs 30 years old isn't a giant difference. Some, yes. Good luck. If you can sell yours then that will only help to establish the value higher.
  16. How do you "measure" T/S parameters vs reading them from the spec sheet?
  17. Good luck in your sale. You're asking $1700 PER speaker. I've had a PAIR in very good condition listed at $1400 for over a month without any serious interest.
  18. I'm moving over the summer and still looking for a house. Top on the list is a media room isolated from the rest of the house. And a wall long enough to put the DBB's in the corner and 3 LaScalas in between. I'm very anxious to get moved so I can set it up. I can only imagine 24hz at 120db.
  19. I've used MCM and Parts Express over the years with no problems at all. The reason I'm trying to find drivers for the DBB is because I'm going to have a pair of cabinets passed down to me that several other forum members have used. The cost is free wirh the condition that I don't resell it. If at some point I can't use them I will pass them along to someone else on the forum. While I have built cabinets in the past, have the tools and the skills to do it, I couldn't pass up a chance to get these cabinets.
  20. I changed the box parameters to 6.3 cu ft and adjusted the port tuning for best performance and I think I found a winner! First I'll discuss what I found. in many cases I would have to take the advice given and change the port tuning. The port tuning is noted. The box is tuned to 42hz so anything else would require modification. Power handling shown is PER DRIVER, so cabinet power would x2 Power Acoustik (MOFO-152X) $159 (purchased through MCM Electronics) Tuning at 24hz, F3 at 24hz Power (RMS) 1700 Sensitivity 87 dB 1W/1m Emminence Lab15 $285 Tuning at 32hz, F3 at 31hz Sensitivity 88.5 dB 1W/1m Power Handling (RMS) 600 Watts Selenium 15SWS800 $215 Tuning at 37hz, F3 at 38hz Sensitivity 93 dB 2.83V/1m Power Handling (RMS) 800 Watts MCM Audio Select (55-2953) $31 Tuning at 36hz, F3 at 40hz Sensitivity (1W/M): 98 dB Power Handling Capacity: 200W RMS Emminence Kappa 15LFA $125 Tuning at 42hz, F3 at 45hz Sensitivity 99 dB 1W/1m Power Handling (RMS) 600 Watts Emminence KappaLite 3015LF $200 Tuning at 42hz, F3 at 46hz Sensitivity 99.4 dB 1W/1m Power Handling (RMS) 450 Watts So......with an f3 of 24Hz with a modified tuning frequency and a power handling of 3400w RMS per cabinet, the MOFO-152X looks like a clear winner. I have 2 QSC CX302 amps that will output 700w into 8 ohms in bridged mono. I'll run one on each sub. With a sensitivity of 90db per speaker (2 drivers coupled), I can get 90db = 1w 93db = 2w 96db = 4w 99db = 8w 102db = 16w 105db = 32w 108db = 64w 111db = 128w 114db = 256w 117db = 512w
  21. Yes it is available. I found pics and the driveris actually a 2445J. That might be close enough to use as a center if you have a matching L/R, but not sure if that's close enough to what you need. I'm not sure off the top of my head what the exact horn is, but hopefully the attached pics will help. Patrick
  22. Thanks. I will edit my model. I was using 6 cu ft and 34hz.
  23. I don't think at that price you would expect original metal badges. They look good and after being installed I can tell the difference only because I'm looking for it.
