  1. Yea I'm pretty OK with taking the 5K and up for 2405. I have excellent mids that do 700 - 7K. The worry is the 500 to 700 if my bass bins can go to 700 or I need different mids.
  2. IIRC the Jubilee was a 2 way. Or am I mistaken ? Maybe the jamboree is not. Let me look.
  3. I was hoping to do 2 way but if 2 way well then I guess its 3 way. The 2402 (modded to be 2405)'s are good 2400 hz and up. But Jamboree bins with eminence Omega's aren't good to 2500 like some of those 15 EV/Altec's were ? I will have to think it over a bit more, I can do a grill vane face on the 2402 like someone on AK has developed, and use a soft dome mid that works 700 to 5K - but again for 3 way I have better options than the 2402 I guess. I have ESS amt 1b's sitting around too BTW. But they're promised to someone else in case he does some other stuff.
  4. I have a Jamboree set that is a little work in progress. I have been holding onto 2 JBL 2402's that were modded to be 2405's for use in the horn section to be mated to the jamborees. Am I on the right track ? Is the 2405 a good one to mate to a 402 or similar horn and mate it to the jamboree.
  5. I think mine is Inspected by Charlie Alexander or Oleander, and Tested by Terry Greene ?? I keep getting -200 when trying to put pics up.
  6. Aaah OK I guess mine is also a B - Mine says KB-OL I think.
  7. And they're the C style, same as mine. The best part - the tops and sides etc come off easy and can be moved with ease.
  8. I had a set of phillips speakers 2 8" and mid soft dome and tweeter soft dome. I wish I knew what model it was atleast, because I've built soft dome mid speakers and am wondering if those were any good or was it just my imagination and inexperience. Also a set of cables that looked like jumper cables and had this massive rectangular box type thing - again dont remember brand and model. Got $125 for it and was like - cool I got 125 for 20 foot of speaker wire. A few more I traded out but wish I had em still. But few and far between. I missed buying a few as well, for me its about the experience not the actual item.
  9. I got 86 Khorns with a dead woofer. A k33e to be exact.
  10. I got nowhere on the K33 calling klipsch, in fact they basically said we dont have these and call someone in CA or somewhere for reconing or some like that. Thanks to my laziness, I have done nothing for 2 weeks now, but Klipsch support well wasn't.
  11. I've bought these types of industrial looking speakers (not lascalas but EV's others) for a lot less than their wood finish equivalents if there were even any of those. They frankly would look ugly in a living room as opposed to a light birch or cherry or what your preferred type is. Flat Black doesn't "disappear" in your living room like it sometimes does on motorcycle parts.
  12. Mine is an 86 B type and I have 4 consecutive serial numbers. Did these only have 2 in a non B type ? Or older ones had only 2 ?
  13. The 57 may not be extra special, but it certainly is very very desirable. In effect when someone buys these, they're buying 60-70 yr old works of art. The drivers, crossover etc etc are all secondary. Woofer are under 300 a pair, tweeter diaphragms and mid diaphragms are also pretty cheap, XO's are more work than $$$ but 200-300 will leave you with new caps and the old hand wound inductors are absolutely awesome. Effectively, the cabinets, condition and look and the buyers preference are what determine the $$. Dont let anyone tell you otherwise.
  14. 2k for proper working Khorns that haven't been trashed and B style ?? The cheapest I've seen them in the NC/SC area was 2500+ and that set was very beat up. Mine was listed @ 3K when I contacted him, but when he sold them to me 9 months later - well the circumstances were very very different for both of us and I got it for a better $. There are some nicer ones than mine but 4K IIRC.
  15. That didn't take long. That will end up @ 5g at this rate. you kids are better off buying mine with some body damage from movers @ 3K. LOL. Its in SC though.
