  1. Beautiful speakers and very fair asking price.  I'm sorry you have to part with them, but you will be making someone very happy.  The universe remembers ;)

    these speakers belong to a klipsch Forum Member , truly one of a kind .




    They're mine. Tons of feedback in the first couple days of listing. Universal praise for their looks:  comments all over the board on the asking price.  I guess that would make it right then. The biggest complainers are naturally the guys with khorns that can't believe you could ever improve on them. You would have thought I gave the Venus de Milo a boob job.

    Not mine, but for sale.  I was in an architectural salvage building over the weekend and ran across a few massive horns.  They were removed from Capitol One Stadium in Washington DC.  Also a handful of Electrovoice FRI+122/64, and two JBL AS2210-STD.  I know this is a Klipsch site but I know the group likes big horns.  They are located in Baltimore, MD. 






    I've been to that place in Baltimore. They get some amazing stuff.  There's another one near there that is more 'arty' stuffs.

    What have we here, laddie? Mysterious scribblings? A secret code? No! Poems, no less! Poems, everybody!






    Original, unmolested KHorns. 1983 model. All original drivers, crossovers, etc. Beautiful original finish. Working condition.

    If this ad is up, they're available. Yes, they're big. If you have to ask your wife, she'll say no.

    He married wrong. My wife prodded me into getting a pair.

    since you have the boxes , the badges , grilles , and all are intact ---1000$ ,and you can post these on this forum ,  in the garage section,


    -you're the 1st owner , this is a plus -

    I would start at $1200 and gauge the response.  Atlanta is a huge metro area. I always prefer to start high on CL and Marketplace as it limits responses from flippers and low ballers.

    Take them completely apart.  Lightly sand the wood with 220 grit.  Also sand the black areas.  Tape up the sides and spray the black (front and back).  Then maybe stain the speakers (I don't like oak).  Apply three coats of an oil based urethane, sanding with 600 in between coats and clean with a tack cloth.


    Wire wheel and paint each screw in semi gloss black. 


    You will also need to make new grills.  Might as well replace the capacitors too. 


    Heck, might as well just keep them at this point.


    I respectfully disagree with this post. That's a lot of work and unnecessary just to get them on the market. Don't take them apart. The fronts and backs are fine.  Mask them off then scrub the cabinets with mineral spirits and 0000 steel wool and wipe them down.  If you've ever used Pledge or a similar furniture polish with silicones, scrub them and wipe them down again. This shouldn't take you more than an hour or two.  They appear to be in good shape, but your pics don't show much of the surfaces. Get yourself some Danish Oil.  I'd get one can of Natural and one can of Regular Walnut and mix them 3 to 1. Flood the surfaces keeping them uniformly wet for 30-45 minutes. If there are some rough areas you can lightly wet sand them at this time with some 300 grit.  Don't be too aggressive or you can burnish the surface- smooth is smooth, you aren't polishing the surface.  You can apply with a rag, steel wool, paper towels, foam pad- whatever- just be mindful of the applicators between coats or when discarding. Submerge them in a jar of finish between coats or water if you are done with them.  The curing process is exothermic.  Fires have happened.   Then wipe them down completely removing all the excess finish.  You will do this process probably 3 or 4 additional times (allowing to dry in between)- or until they stop absorbing the oil (you'll be able to tell). ALLOW THE FINISH TO DRY COMPLETELY BETWEEN EACH COAT <- read that again! The amount of time it takes to dry completely will vary widely based on the climate.  A warm, dry workshop- 24 hours or less. A cool dank garage- could be 3 days or longer.  You can put a heat light or heather on them to speed the process.  This may sound like a lot, but it's really easy even for a novice and does not require a clean shop.  Most of your time is spent waiting. Shouldn't take you more than half an hour of easy wiping to apply each coat. Materials should be less than $50.  Applying poly to any Heritage model lowers it's value imho.  These aren't dining room tables. They do not need to be entombed in resin for durability. Oil finish is beautiful, easy to apply and easy to maintain- just give them a wipe on/off every 5 years or so with the Danish Oil.


    Then fix the grills. I'd find a cheaper alternative to the Crites OEM black cloth. I did a pair of oak Cornwalls in an off-white grill cloth and I think they looked better than factory.  They blended in the room much better. As always ymmv.

    It matches the E50 perfectly. Here's my rack with the PA3s just waiting for the PA5. As you can see I'm using the DAC in preamp mode and I use it's remote for volume control. I run the amp wide open and it's dead quiet.

    Love the rack. Two questions- where did you get it?  And isn't it upside down?  I'd think the points would be the 'feet'.
