  1. I've seen "discoloration" at that height before from repeated applications of cat urine. That might not be the case here, but maybe so--considering the seller's Craigslist etiquette.🤪 Caveat emptor!
  2. Congrats, Shelby! Once you've had a chance to settle in with the speakers, I'll be curious to hear how you folks feel about the CF-4's compared to the KLF-30's. Do you know what generation the CF-4's are?
  3. Buy a disposable box knife and a disposable shipping tape dispenser. Go to the recycling bin behind an appliance store, bicycle store, furniture store, or anywhere you can get some free big flat sheets of clean corrugated cardboard. Wrap up the cabinet in cardboard with opening for the handle. Cover with fragile stickers and hold your breath 'til you get to Maine. Good luck!
  4. EpicKlipschFan, Please note two things about the sale that minimize eBay advantages: 1. This is a buy-it-now auction, so the bid is not going to go up. The first bidder wins. 2. It is local pick-up only so there is no big benefit to paying a commission for national exposure If they posted on a free forum like Klipsch or Craig's the sales price could probably be $700 for the same net return as eBay. But the seller is a business (DaytonIT), which offers eBay listing services. So they may just be selling the speakers on consignment, in which case my comments are worthless 🤣🤣🤣 Just my three cents, triceratops
  5. Hey hanksjim1, Thanks for posting this, but it looks like you put up the wrong link: https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/ele/d/portland-vintage-receivers-tuners/7341757694.html I think this is what you want: https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/ele/d/beaverton-trade-klipsch-chorus-walnut/7343094538.html --triceratops
  6. He decided to keep his speakers. Then you suggested he could have netted more by parting them out. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
  7. Randy, On the Klipsch forum we typically celebrate when someone decides to keep their Klipsch speakers instead of selling them. Instead you suggest that this owner shouldn't keep, but should dismantle an intact, vintage pair Klipsch speakers in order to part them out to sell them for maximum return. I'm confused. Is this the Klipsch forum or the Flipper forum?
  8. I think monastery policy comes from the Vatican school 😇 Isn't AutoCorrect great? 🤣
  9. If they are from 1975, these probably would have come with the original pie slice badges, usually in a plastic envelope stapled to the back of the cabinet. The idea was that owners might want to install the badges in mirror image position, or symmetrically, or centrally, or not at all. Some people never opened the envelope and don't even know what's in there. I have no idea if these Klipschorns have uninstalled badges, but if they do it's another plus.
  10. Chris, My hat is off to you! You are a true pillar of the Klipsch community, and I'm glad to see you're still around. triceratops
  11. Local pickup only depresses bidding, too.
  12. You know there was a reserve, right?
  13. Nobody bid and it's over!
  14. If he's right, Shiva's got better vision than me. The CF-4's that were posted previously did not have the faded numbers that these do. In any case, the one number shown does not match the Craig's List speakers and does not appear to be 1994. The ones on Craig's List were 1994. This auction closes in 5 minutes!
