    KP 3002 in Denver- $650

    Dave, you’re the expert on the pro gear. What do these compare to? Can they beat Cornwalls or chorus being a 2 way vs 3way?

    WTB: Crites XOvers & Tweeters for Forte1 or Chorus2

    Looks like you use your basement system is for your 2 channel stereo/vinyl listening. Consider saving up to invest in tubes for that set up as well. There is a sweet synergy between Klipsch and tubes. just my and many others humble opinion. 😃.

    WTB: Crites XOvers & Tweeters for Forte1 or Chorus2

    Forte I are kinda of a pain to rebuild the xover on. The crossover is built on the back of the terminal cup and are impossible to just put new caps on...well at least for me. I took all the pieces off and built a new board for them. Really a gratifying job but it can be a head scratcher too. Recapping my forte ii and Chorus II that are built on pcb boards was a cake walk in comparison.

    Big Technics amp

    I’m posting this for my nephew. He just had his trailer and mower stolen Saturday and sadly he has to sell all of his gear to replace them. This is a mammoth amp quite rare and is in superb condition. He’d be willing to ship but, at this time have no idea the packaged weight or shipping cost. He’s in west Georgia and would be willing to deliver within a reasonable distance. https://atlanta.craigslist.org/wat/ele/d/technics-soild-state-amp/6509983191.html

    Bump
  13. Hey guys, So a couple weeks ago I was fighting with a pair of kg5.2 and the old woofer crackle thing that a thousand people have had trouble with. I reglued surround, dust cover and cone to the spider and....,nothing still there but, only when driven hard. So I chalked it up to my Sansui 7070 clipping because my st-70 plays them fine but, doesn’t push the woofers near as hard. So I promised I’d never buy another pair of the newer kgs, well guess what I lied!! Picked up a pair of kg 5.5 and what a shocker these do the exact same thing. I beefed up all the internal wiring and that didn’t solve anything, so my big question is can those old electrolytic caps cause this problem? I don’t mind ordering some and putting them in I just don’t want to waste my time and money if it’s not going to resolve the problem. Oh yea on the 5.2 I reglued the rear panel that nearly blew off while playing them, must’ve been a glue shortage in Hope Arkansas the years the kgs were built because whoever woulda thought that a tiny bead of hot glue would hold these things together, but that didn’t resolve the problem either. Frustrating!! Help please!! thanks, Mark

    Chorus for $300 in Tampa, FL

    Looks like the Chorus have been removed from the list.

    Woofer snap,crackle,pop... wth?

    Absolutely, even the kg4 can beat it down with no problems. I will whisper quietly and say the the lines after that just don’t have the same build quality of the heritage and extended heritage lines. Have you seen the 22guage wire used in them? Sheesh! and i already mentioned the glue issue.

    Woofer snap,crackle,pop... wth?

    Yea I can see where that could be the problem and crazy thing is the guy I bought them from had a 7070 and he said they were doing the same thing. They don’t do it off my other amp but, the tube amp doesn’t push the woofers to the excursion that the Sansui does. I have to be honest that it’s usually past 50% volume before they start to crackle too. I’ve just read tons of past posts about people having this problem with the kg_._line and have a hard time believing that everybody’s got faulty amps. So you don’t think the old xover caps could be the problem? That’s the only thing I didn’t do on the 5.2s. Thanks Ron.

    Maybe my wife is right

    Idk, I hadn’t really thought about selling mine but, a guy I know was gonna buy an old st-70 for 750 and I told him I’d sell my B.L. vta st-70 for 700. So he thinks he wants it but he had to put new tweets and xovers in his Lascala so he’s put me on hold till he gets more money together.

    Well, I haven’t advertised my Bob Latino st-70 but, there is someone very interested in it so it might be time to switch things up. This technics is an impressive and quite gorgeous amp but, he needs to move it ASAP to replace his mower and trailer that was stolen last week. Frame looks awesome too. You are the man of a thousand projects, 😁.

    Hey Jerry, I figure you might be looking for tubes but my nephew is selling a massive Technics amp I think it’s rated at 160/ch. if your interested he just lives in Carrollton about an hour from you. Cornwalls look phenomenal by the way! Mark
  21. I bought these with the intentions of building baby Cornwalls but, have decided not to start a new project right now. These have k-700 horns and type e crossovers. All original internals, I’d rate them 7-8 cosmetically, no water stains or busted corners. One side has a chip about the size of a pea, they look like they’ve been poly coated. Really want to sale but, would consider trades for either other vintage Klipsch (I can throw some cash in for the right trade) or integrated tube amp in excellent or restored condition( no projects😬) willing to meet within 50 miles of 30187, or I we can figure out shipping. I can accept PayPal friend payment. Thanks, Mark

    Big Technics amp

    That’s good to know. No plans to travel to Charleston but, if it hasn’t sold in a week or so, a road trip might be in order.
