  1. Ooops, thought I did post within technical / modifications.
  2. 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!
  3. I'd like to see the driver. Too bad it's only one picture.
  4. 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.
  5. I now have my 402 replacements. Thanks to all for your input.
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. 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.

    And hey, they even have "consecutive serial numbers"!!! This way, they sound as close as possible to one another???
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. This is what I found after opening the original 84' Khorn boxes.
  14. 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.
  15. What to do when I am "only allowed to upload 2MB"? I cannot remember how to get around this
  16. . 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
  17. 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?
  18. SOLD! Picking up on Saturday.
  19. 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
  20. FOR FREE, one pair of; Selenium ADF25/35 Three Bolt Speaker Horn To 1-3/8 Inch Threaded Driver Adapter. The three hole spacing is centered on 2 13/16" ... dead on. I think these might have been meant for JBL's? I was going to use these for a project (Altec 511B horn to K-55-M driver) but decided to order aluminum adapters that are exact adaptation. I didn't care for the sloppy look of drilling holes to make it work for a 12:00/6:00 bolt on arrangement. Due to the kindness of so many members, I am happy to mail these to anyone who can use them FREE OF CHARGE. In addition, I am building 8 new speaker cloth hardwood frames for my 4 Khorns. These will be professionally made out of Knotty Alder (without the knots of course), pocket screwed, glued, darkened & lacquered. Two of my frames within two separate speakers were broken in a move many years ago. Long story short, I'm sprucing up all 4 Khorns with new frames and cloth. These will be 100% square without any cutouts that are always at the bottom of the speaker cloth frames. I think the cutouts were intended for possible baseboards? If anyone is interested in a few pair of these frames let me know and we could possibly work something out. I find it hard to believe I am the only person who has experienced this unfortunate situation. The stock speaker cloth frames are rather brittle. Finally, does anyone happen to know where to obtain the best new/old looking speaker fabric for Khorns? Picture below was fished off the internet and exactly what I have to offer. My adapters are new and have never been installed.
  21. Nice enough but 5 grand? Hmm
  22. Since having zero response from the Garage Sale section, I decided to try this over here ... I thought I'd give this a try before purchasing from Klipsch. I only need the metal parts. I already have the wood base.
