    I realize this thread is several months old but wanted to note something. The Stephens 103LX2 woofer is in fact rated at 4 ohms. (The standard Stephens 103LX is a 16 ohm woofer) Apologies if this was noted earlier in the thread and I didn't notice. EDIT: Attached an image. Note the 4 ohm impedance stamped on lower left, and model number 103LX-2 stamped on lower right. Picture was lifted from the internet. However both my Klipschorns (a 1954 and a 1956 ) have the 103LX2 woofers and each measures a DCR of around 3.2---3.7 ohms IIRC. I also have a loose 103LX2 and it is also stamped 4 ohms and measures in a similar manner.
  3. Early Klipschorn manufacturing "oops"

    Wow....thanks JRH !! I somehow missed this when you posted back in July. Is it possible for me to get a similar image of the logbook entry for my other one, #1069 ?
  4. I recently started building new pair of crossovers for my two mid-fifties Klipschorns. Today I wanted to remove the old crossover on my earlier 1954 unit and I notice something odd. The build tag says serial #618. The wood trim on the back of the bass horn is stamped 618. But the vertical wood pieces on the top section..... are stamped 617. And the squawker horn has 617 written by hand on the factory label.IIRC many years ago when I started messing with this unit I contacted Klipsch for information about 618 and they mentioned an identical unit with either preceding or subsequent serial number being produced. Something tells me that #617 is stamped 618 on the upper part. Were 617 and 618 built to the same specification? Is there any record of it's current owner?

    Not sure why a Stephens 150FR would be inside a Klipschorn. The only Stephens I'm aware of ever being installed are the P52LX, and the 103LX2. The 103LX2 by the way is a 4 ohm woofer. It's the woofer that came from the factory with my 1954 and 1956 Klipschorns.
