  1. I only built one and run it in stereo. I'd love the link to the PSU to build. I find all the DIY forums a bit hard to wade through.
  2. Thanks, I built the 8w x 2 ACA with the 24v wallwart. Love it, but need 20 of Nelson's watts to be fully happy with my bass place on my Chorus IIs.
  3. How many watts are those mono amps you just built with the psu putting out.
  4. Gorgeous. Might want to post pics of inside showing the work done. May help you sell it.
  5. I did. I used a plastic cheese knife to slowly remove it with no damage to either it or the cone.
  6. I can now confirm that this was the noise. Fixed now. Thanks all for the advice, and input and pics!
  7. I didn't see this until after removing dustcap. Not sure I would have been able to get it from behind though. It had gotten around the dust cap and was against the cone as seen in these pics. Pretty sure this was causing the noise, not the dustcap which had a lifted edge, but did not seem to be completely unglued where the edge was. Question1. Best way to remove residual glue? Question2. Mixed clear epoxy ok for gluing the screen back on ?
  8. I saw your post on the KG 5.5's. What did you do to remove the dustcaps completely? I don't know if to try a razor blade or heat or just pull after I get a lip up?
  9. Thanks! I will look for this when I remove the driver.
  10. Thanks for the reply! Please do hold the last one for me in case I can't fix. If you need me to buy outright, let me know. Feel free to send me a DM. I ordered some speaker glue, and will check the mounting screws, the spider, and the dustcap seal itself in the next two days. The dustcap seal is coming up on that driver, but wasn't sure if it was detached all the way through.
  11. No. Pushing in on the dustcap is noiseless. And does not seem to affect noise when playing. I too, noticed that it seems to be separating on the lower left, but not sure if it really is. Will oder the glue.
  12. That is what I thought, but pushing down pretty hard on dustcap doesn't seem to mitigate the buzzing much. Is there a good glue recommended to bind these two pieces of Poly together?
  13. Good morning fellow Klipsch lovers. I have a problem, and need your expertise on diagnosing. I bought a pair of KLF30s this weekend. Listened briefly in his home an hour away, and didn't notice any issues. After I got home, I hooked them up and after about 1 hour of listening (80-90db, sounded great), I noticed some vibration/buzzing from one of woofers on one speaker. Don't know if I broke something loose or what, but I was NOT driving them hard; although it was with deeply pronounced bass tracks. I read about issues with Baffles on these, so I pressed hard on all front/rear wood with no change in the offending sound. If I push on the dustcap, it "might" attenuate the buzzing, but only if pressed quite hard where the overall movement of the diaphragm is substantially hindered. I've recorded sound here so you can hear it. Do I need a new woofer? I understand they are unobtanium, but asked in modification/KLF30post on this forum if any had one from updating to HW321 drivers. https://photos.app.goo.gl/PmJ1ZXXoYXXeYjxm9
  14. Looking for a driver to replace a bad one on my KLF30s. I think these are K-31-K ? I just need one. Hoping someone that did the HW321 upgrades has one they can let go of. Thanks!
  15. I just acquired a pair of KLF30's. One woofer has some rattling/static on certain frequencies. See first 1/2 of the attached video I took. This is completely absent from my Klipsch Chorus II on a A/B speaker switch (or swapped B/A) so is not a source issue. Holding my finger to the dustcap where it looks like it might be coming unglued, does not attenuate the rattle, so I don't think that is it. I'm posting in this thread because I figured many might have a leftover driver from replacing them with the highly lauded HW321 in this thread. A few questions: Anyone have any idea what this indicates and can it be fixed? If someone has one to sell please reach out via a chat as the HW321 is backordered again, and I don't have funds to buy 4 at this time. Thanks in advance.
  16. Those are nice looking. Where are you located?

    This is similar to what what I detailed here in this post: Glad you didn't fall for it!
  18. Thanks WMcD. Can other Khorn owners chime in with whether they hook them up in 4 ohm?
  19. I was able to finally find this: https://f072605def1c9a5ef179-a0bc3fbf1884fc0965506ae2b946e1cd.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.com/product-manuals/Klipschorn-2019_Manual_p04.pdf Looks like slightly different version of posts, where they weren't aligned on the same horizontal. But...it looks like single ampflications needs to come in on the HF in, not LF in? That shouldn't matter right? They are bridged.
  20. My father bought Khorns as a second owner 2.5 years ago and was told they were 2 years old. So I think they should be in the 2014 range for age, give or take a year or two. He bought a new generation McIntosh 275 tube amplifier and it would go into a fault protection if he turned it up too loud. Given his level of listening is lower than mine, and they didn't actually sound more than ~ 100db sound levels, I thought that something was probably wrong with the 275. Fast foward 2 years and after a few more faults at levels that I would not consider super loud, it blew a channel. Right channel stopped working. The unit was still under warranty and went to get repaired for free from McIntosh. Unit comes back, sounds great. He turns it up again, and it blows out. Best Buy Magnolia says, sorry, we'll order you a new one. That one should come Thursday. It got me to wondering if perhaps the 3 speakers on the Khorn weren't hooked up or bridged correctly for single amplification. I had him take the following pics, to see if one of you could verify that they were correct or incorrect. Serial number too. Thanks for the help. I would hate to have him lose another 275 for wiring his Khorns wrong! The input comes in on LF IN from the Amp via a bananna plug.
  21. That is hard to pass up! If I head north anytime in the future, I'll send you a PM!
  22. FYI Folks. Link here to my post that was a result of a scammer scrolling through forums and finding a target.
