  1. Already paid the nice guy for it. Just waiting to pick it up. Going to use as my 5th cf-2 as a center channel.
  2. Well I guess I'm asking too much or nobody's upgrading KG4s these days. Make me a reasonable offer and let's get a pair of KG4's sounding a bit better. Thanks, Chewy
  3. Let me see if I can find my old ones after I upgraded to the titanium. If I can sort them out just pay for shipping and there yours.
  4. I've fixed dozens of Klipsch speakers with glue issues from KLFs & Epics to KG 3.5 & 4.5s. Each and every time all I did was remove all the drivers, crossovers & wiring, dampening material and binding post plate. Then used a rubber mallet on the inside of the enclosure to loosen and remove the rattling culprit. Once the rattling board is removed you take a 1/2" wood chisel or similar and proceed to remove all the old glue from the board you removed and from the enclosure. It comes out fairly easy and shouldn't take more than an hour to do both speakers. After the glue has been removed is a perfect time to add any internal bracing for your cabinets to stiffen up any unwanted resonance or dampening material like Dynamat for your horns and woofer baskets to combat the same unwanted resonance if your so inclined. Next step is to reglue the rattling piece that was removed. I always used liquid nail and never had any issues. I tend to use a bit more than less when applying my bead of liquid nail around the perimeter of the enclosure. Around the size of a #2 pencil will suffice but lean towards using more rather than less. The fit of the removed board was always snug and didn't leave more than a 16th of an inch on any side which didn't allow any of the liquid nail to squeeze out and mess up the outside look of the cabinet. Any excess of glue will squeeze out inside the box, you can either leave it the way it is and let it dry or you can put on some disposable gloves or whatever you choose to use and wipe down the bead of adhesive that was squeezed out of the channel after attaching the removed piece. I personally let the adhesive dry wherever it ended up. After letting the adhesive set for the recommended time, 60 min if you decide to use the proper liquid nail variety, finish reassembling your speakers. Don't forget your dampening material and speaker polarities when hooking things back up. All in all it really is quite simple to do with about 25 dollars worth of tools from harbor freight and some liquid nail from your favorite hardware store. Phillips screwdriver ( to remove drivers ect.) Rubber mallet Wood chisel Caulking gun Tube of liquid nail I hope this helps someone in the future fix some great sounding Klipsch speakers.
  5. Looking to sell these for 200 dollars. 20 dollars less than what they cost. I ended up selling my KG4's right after I bought these and the new owner did not want to pay for the new crossovers. I was going to try and exchange them for some CF-2 rebuilds but never got around to asking them. Too much time has past for me to ask the good folks at crites but there still brand new and never been used. 200 bucks plus small shipping fee to your location and there yours. Still has the plastic pads covering the sticky part of the velcro so you can mount them inside.
  6. I can sell you a K-9-K for your KG2. Send me a message if you are still in need of one. Oh and good luck with the restoration.
  7. I've got a few of those speakers left. There used and in great shape. Got a couple that have had the surrounds patched but still sound great for a little cheeper. The surrounds could be redone but I like the look and function of the inverted original surrounds. Anyway let me know what exactly your looking for. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
