New Palladium P-17B in General Klipsch Info Posted July 7, 2016 · Edited July 7, 2016 by Superbee69 Another little update.... The replacement speaker arrived today. It did require a little TLC to get it to where it should've been in the first place. 1. There was a dime sized area of residue on the top metal plate (where the Klipsch decal is). Tried a dampened microfiber towel first - no go. I ended up having to use a Q-tip soaked in naptha to get the residue off. Took several careful minutes to get it all off. QC had to see this! I did a little pre test before proceeding with naptha. I was fairly confident that naptha would not be an issue. I've used naptha on nitrocellulose lacquered instruments numerous times with no issues. 2. The woofer bezel was pushed out a little. This was most likely from jarring during shipment. Both boxes (double boxed) were a little worse for wear. Thanks UPS! I gently pushed the bezel back in place and all is well. The bezel appears to be friction fit. I don't really see this as a major issue. I'm ok with the purchase now. I am a little disappointed in Klipsch's Q.C. as it pertains to fit and finish. First speaker is shipping back tomorrow.
