  1. Also letting go of a pair of my Khorns as well. New crossovers and needless to say, they sound terrific!
  2. I have a great pair for sale and I'm in St. George.
  3. I've followed many discussions within different forums surrounding capacitor brands. Sonicaps seem to be the common preference although, following other forums from other non-Klipsch sites I see Jantzen, Claritycap, Audyn True Copper caps, etc. I already anticipate a variety of responses to this general question knowing this is relative to ones listening preferences ... or is it? I also wonder, does a particular brand of capacitor vary depending on speaker model? For example, would the Heresy have a particular brand preferred over the Khorns since Khorns are obviously much greater in sound reproduction? Awhile back I bought new Sonicap capacitors within the Klipsch Forum and rebuilt a set of AL-2's. I am now seeking the best replacements for a pair of AA crossovers. I am merely seeking the best sound reproduction from within the world of Capacitors. Cost is not my concern rather, QUALITY! Quote Edit
  4. Ooops, thought I did post within technical / modifications.

  6. I'd like to see the driver. Too bad it's only one picture.
  7. Actually, I do. I went and looked at them today and they are sweeeet! In fact a mighty fine example of one owner, well kept speakers. I've been waiting on this one. Just before I met the guy at his air conditioned storage facility he had them up on saw horses and was polishing them up when I arrived. I will post pictures sometime after hauling them home tomorrow.
  8. I now have my 402 replacements. Thanks to all for your input.
  9. I've been collecting the classic old Marantz's for years. The old boy that did all my restorations (for a great many years) recently died. I have a perfectly good working 2270 that I'd like to have gone through. Of course I realize this will need to be nicely packaged and mailed away. If anyone knows of a GOOD PROFESSIONAL RELIABLE Marantz specialist that they could refer me to, I'd be appreciative. Thanks
  10. Unfortunately, the Furutech GTX D has a standing reputation of not "gripping the plugs". Since your receptacles are used, would this happen to be the reason you are selling?
  11. I thought I'd try this again. Trying to locate a single 402 lens. Already have the KT-1133 driver waiting for it. Thanks! Tony
  12. Yes, that is definitely a logical approach you offer. I prefer staying with the Klipsch OEM as this particular pair of speakers I have already has one set of OEM brackets. I will supply the speaker without with duplicates. Thank you for your comment.

    Belles

    And hey, they even have "consecutive serial numbers"!!! This way, they sound as close as possible to one another???
  14. I've heard many good things about this amp. Does anyone out there have or had this amp before? If so, what's the good or bad word? Thanks! Tony
  15. You pose an interesting question Budman. I haven't the foggiest on how a person would cut the motorboard without damaging the cloth. As far as I can tell, the cloth is OEM. The holes are not perfect so they didn't use a "hole saw" bit to do the job which puzzles me all the more. A fair amount of effort went into this including removing the circuit board for clear access in order to perform the cutting.
  16. This is what I found after opening the original 84' Khorn boxes.
  17. Since I still cannot figure out how to paste pictures "OVER 2MB", I fished this off the internet. Identical to what I have. By the by, does anyone have and clean Khorn tweeters hanging around? These are 1984's with the AK-2 board. I'm having a difficult time figuring out which K-77 was used in 84.
  18. What to do when I am "only allowed to upload 2MB"? I cannot remember how to get around this
  19. . Yeah that's what I was thinking too. I had to laugh when I first saw it thinking ... why would ya fix it if it aint broke? DUH
  20. a Foster 025N27 Tweeter? I just bought a pristine pair of Khorns with these tweeters in it. Someone has removed the K-77's originally mounted on the motorboard and went through the extra trouble of boring out round holes to accept these tweeters instead. My discovery finds these particular Fosters are not rated very high in the consumer world. Additionally, they modified the board to accept a small blue capacitor which may or may not have anything to do with the Foster tweeter. Anyone?
  21. SOLD! Picking up on Saturday.
  22. Welcome Sam, Heck, I'm just down the street from you next to Zion Nat'l Park. I'd like to speak with you about a pair. Thanks! Tony
