    LaScala Grill Options

    Sorry for the delayed response. The total cost is somewhere in the 3.5-4k range. I try not to think about it...

    LaScala Grill Options

    Hello everyone! I just recently purchased a pair of LaScalas and my fiance is hoping to have grills put on them. She said yes to the speakers and to having them in the living room so I guess I can figure out a way to do this. I reached out earlier to Matt about bass bin grills and he is getting back to me on directions for that, but I have not seen anything on the top grill. Is there a place for me to purchase them still? Im pretty sure Klipsch won't have them anymore! Any help is much appreciated! Thanks, Graham

    Refinishing La Scala black cabinets

    Most likely Klipsch will not have anything besides the new Jubilee logo that they use.

    Bought an MC250. Great sounding amp

    I would give Terry Dewick a call and see what he thinks you should look for when going to look at it. It would never hurt anybody if you just went to go look ....

    Bought an MC250. Great sounding amp

    I believe you can do everything yourself on the older 2505s and 2105s. My father in law and I did a 2105 about a year ago. I gave it to him for Christmas. We were easily able to clean the pots and replace caps as needed. The bigger power supply caps in the back may or may not be bad. They were expensive last time I checked. You can replace the boards if you feel its necessary for 300ish for the parts? Personally we waited a month before we decided to recap it to see if we liked it the way it was in its current condition or not. We got curious so we did. The glass is readily available from McIntosh for a small price (120ish?) if something were to ever happen. They do runs about every six months of the older glass. You can send it off to someone and they charge about 7-800 dollars to do a full upgrade electronically last time I checked.

    New amp for R-115SW, where can I buy it?

    I would say try contacting the factory in hope. Other than that I would have no idea.

    Grill Cloth - Free - Sold

    Hello everyone! I recently had my LaScalas re veneered and I have decided to put a top grill on them. I ordered the grill cloth at the link below. I had to order 2 yards of it as a minimum. I surely do not need that for two top grills. Anyway putting this up here to see if anyone else is interested in the left overs. I am hoping there is at least one 72x36 solid piece left if not more. If there isn't I really need to go and work on my DIY skills . Will update this post more as its delivered and I finish the grills if there is any interest. This will be Free! I just want it out of my house once I'm finished and I don't want to throw it away. Link to the cloth. On the drop down tab its the p-9000. Ill post pictures of the sample I received tonight. https://acousticalsolutions.com/product/acoustone-amplifier-grille-cloth/ I personally think it looks like the 70th Anniversary cloth. Thanks, Graham

    Call the Klipsch parts people! I believe they were $12 a badge? These are the only badges that they sell now called the Jubilee Badge.

    Hey DTR, Let me post pics tonight of the grill cloth. As I said before I hope I can get the two grills in one to two shots. Even If I mess up once on both grills it still leaves me with a 72"x36" piece. Ill give you more details as it comes in! I would say about a week or two from now. Ill keep in touch.

    Belle Klipsch..new to me

    From my understanding this is just for one half of the crossover, the LF section. To get a "full" crossover from what I understand you would also need an ES5800?

    What I Got Today!

    The LaScalas are from 1984. Tweeters blown before I got them so they are now replaced with CT120s recapped the AAs and I am very happy with the Rosewood veneer on them. Still debating on whether to put a 70th anniversary grill look a like on the tops or not. Thought it would be a good contrast. The Dared have been upgraded pretty well from the previous owner. Can look and see what I can find on the upgrades will Pm you or edit this post later once I get home. They have a bit of a transformer hum currently but only have them set up to a normal power strip with no conditioning. That is on its way. They worked really well with my Heresies, and so far I am happy with them paired with my LaScalas Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not everything made it home safely sadly. The veneer tore on the right speaker for about an inch on the left panel on the back edge right smack dab in the middle of the speaker. Im thinking of just dying the backer as thats all you can really see (its a very light wood backer compared to others that I have seen), and you have to walk right up to it. Wont take pictures as it makes me sick to think about but I am glad as well that they are home. Father in law came over and had a blast setting them up with me and even took over replacing the tweeters when I went to go get water for everyone! It was a beautiful day and a 6 hour round trip drive. Don't think Ill be doing that again anytime soon... We have decided to put the top grills on with the fabric I showed earlier. The horns have white spots all over them, and this will be an easy and reversible fix. Plus thanks to the kindness of everyone here I already have all the stuff needed! Thanks again guys!
