  1. I certainly will do . A fellow is coming over to check out the Cornwalls, he may also want these crossovers . If not I'll let you know.
  2. The earlier 5000 and maybe 5000a did have a problematic driver board, The most of the 5000x's had a better driver board, like mine.
  3. I have gone over to the dark side with a pair of altec lansing model 19 . Please don't hate me 😇
  4. The Crossovers are on hold until 11/21/2017.
  5. Very nice set of all original Klipsch Cornwalls 1983. With B3 crossovers. Can Deliver locally. Spokane, WA . $800 512 590 9234
  6. Oh well, same thing happened to me. I heard a set of these when I bought the Cornwalls but the guy would not sell the crossovers. So I ordered a set and then he lets me know they are for sale ! Best thing ever for the Klipsch. I had the B3 klipsch crossovers and these made a dramatic improvement all across the board. And contrary to some opinions, they sound great at all volume levels, low , medium, and high.
  7. A set of AlK engineering Crossover set. two ea. AP12-600, and two ea. ES 5800 extreme slope. AP12-600 This one is intended for the Belle Klipsch or the La Scala using squawker drivers or horns that will not safely go down to 500 Hz. The crossover is at 600 Hz. This the preferred crossover for The Klipsch Cornwall, Cornwall II, and Corn Scala , Corn Altec etc. These have the midrange level adjustable Autoformer 1 db steps. These are $350 new plus fedex shipping . ES 5800 The 5800 Hz crossover is the recommended frequency for most applications. All versions uses ClarityCaps in the signal path to the tweeter EXCEPT the ES7500. Solen astCaps are used as ClarityCaps are not available in the required value for that crossover frequency. All have adjustable tweeter level settings of 0, -3, -5, -7 and -9 dB attenuation. Auto former . The bi-amp version allows mid-range setting from 3 to 18 dB in 1 dB steps. These are $ 420 new plus fedex I will sell both sets together $700 fedex included to Continental/Contiguous USA call, text or email 5one2 590 9234 billzumwalt@hotmail.com
  8. When ever I use my Sansui 5000x I am in NO hurry to replace it. It's mostly a back up for my tube amps when they need service.
  9. Set the bias , if it's adjustable. If not , measure the tubes current to see if they in range.
  10. The phono stage feeds into the line stage which goes into the phase invertor driver stage which feeds the power tubes. Probably a slightly microphonic tube, could be a capacitor. I have even encountered microphonic wire. Put some heat shrink tubing on the preamp tubes. It will damping the ringing a bit. Most tube phono stages have a bit of microphonics.
  11. If the amplifier designer knew what they were doing it is best to use the type tube it was originally designed for. There are different bias requirements for each tube type. And different wiring requirements sometimes. There are different heater currents for different tubes even if all the other requirements are met. An El34 can be swapped for a 6l6gc if the tube socket is wired to accept both, but the bias range is much different. Maybe the designer allowed enough range of adjustment. The heater current is nearly double in the el34 vs the 6l6. Maybe the design built in enough current capacity ?. Grid load resistors are another variable , a 6l6 or el34 might use 220k but a 6550a or kt88 would be better with 50k. I would stick with what the designer specified for the best performance. Better quality tubes will make a difference, especially if the amplifier is very well designed and other associated components are of very high (revealing) quality.
