    they are similar, but the 2000 has a better more powerful amp at 500w 1100peak vs 400 & 800peak.  also a better woofer in the 2000.  2000 goes to 19hz & nsd 23hz.  both are good subs for their price & at or under $400 used prices they really cant be beat. 

    Got it a Epic, thanks for the info I guess I could’ve looked it up myself I appreciate it...  However I have not seen very many if any used SB 2000s in the 400 range...

    Stayed out of this conversation until now.

    There are better candidates like the Heresy, maybe some others 

    members have modified over time, like you already know.

    Just like the original sound.

    Owned Chorus for a long while before finally being convinced

    to refresh the crossovers.

    Just me...

    Sorry to drag you in lol

    It is a decent enough speaker as is.


    Actually their so decent that I’m thinking about parting ways with my 280s, I’m not sure that they’re any better than the KG’s that I’ve had for almost 30 years, Not that the 280s are bad in their own right it’s just that I still love the full robust sound of the KG’s...

  6. Thanks Billy Bob I’m actually just kind of joking around in regards to not getting a response, I get plenty of good responses and information around the site as is...  However people would also say the heresy is good as it is yet there is a super...

    Simply Speakers are authorized to sell Klipsch Factory Parts


    Michael Crites sells custom made replacement parts (Michael's dad Bob just passed away)


    I have replaced about nine sets of ti tweeter diaphragms and about 5 sets of ti mid diaphragms (the ti mid is only available from Klipsch via Simply Speakers). In all the tweeter ti sets I had two Klipsch ti tweeter diaphragms go bad but I have had no Crites parts go bad. I prefer the build of the Crites part Bob was a real stickler for quality. Just so you know. Bob was working on finding a supplier for the Klipsch ti mid diaphragm but could not find one that was good enough. He could have sold what ever was available but he would not. So don't let anyone suggest to you that the Crites ti tweeter is a cheap clone or copy it is (to me) the best option available.

    Thanks Moray, Do you recommend changing the caps or should I try the to diaphragms first and wait on that...? If so what caps do you recommend, the ones from crrites or some other aftermarket product?  Which upgrade in your opinion is going to be the most noticeable?

    no worries I understand I just wanted readers to understand the ease and value of doing this to their speakers but yes I understand also lots of owners either don't want to drill holes or do anything to their speakers. That's just the way it is.

    Thanks to both of you guys for the input... In my case it was easiest to go with the original parts as i was able to get them through this post...

    -klipsch offers 2 types of  Factory original  diaphragms for the KG 4.2 tweeter , the K-85-K ------the 2nd option is a Titanium diaphragm , made by Klipsch -


     all other parts sold online  , are aftermarket parts that  are copies or clones -

    Where do I go to find these on the website?



  10. Thinking of upgrading my KG 4.2s with frites diaphragms...  I have heard good things about this but don’t want to completely change the sound signature of the speakers..  I also have RP280fs And do not want the same exact sound if I put in a crimes tweeter in my kgs.   I love the full robust sound of the KG’s and do not want to lose that..  Looking for the opinions of those who may have done this or something similar and wondering what they thought of the results...

  11. Wondering if anybody has the spikes and caps for one kg 3.2 speaker...  Found them on eBay but I really don’t want to pay $11 per spike, Considering only paid $100 for the speaker itself, Let me know if you guys have any I’d be willing to pay just want a little bit more of a reasonable price than what I found on eBay...
