  1. Hi Mark, The 501 is what I've removed from the Belle in order to install a K401 in it's place. I am now left with a single 501 which I will not be using. Thank you for the kind offer!
  2. Awhile ago I was intrigued by "Garyrc"s suggestion in introducing the K401 into my single Belle. I posted the single K 401 request sometime ago and of course, no one had a single to spare. I thought I'd try my luck once again. Hopefully there's one out there? On the other hand, does anyone know where I might obtain a decent after market? I'd prefer to keep it Klipsch but I'm starting to think otherwise. Thanks
  3. Here's what I'm thinking about. Problem is, with Pat's "Faital Drivers", where am I going to find a pair of K-402 bodies? Horns, Horn Lens', whatever. The K-402's without and/or absent of drivers. Been looking online for awhile and so far, it's not looking good.
  4. I'm curious to know as well Pete. Wondering how those would do on top of my two KPT-415-LF's (Quad 15" Bass Units)? That would turn them into two way instead of the current three way. I'd likely have to retro in new crossover boards designated for 2 way. Anyone have a greater knowledge on my approach? Glad to hear any replies supporting the idea.
  5. Asking price reality will kick in. Only a matter of time if the seller truly needs to sell them.
  6. Did you seriously pay 75 dollars for that? Wow, what a deal
  7. Agreed. Classy and good sense.
  8. Easy Peasy, Thanks! Now I'm curious, what range would be considered sufficient for these?
  9. I know there's a very simple way of testing these with a meter, just don't know how. Can anyone help guide me on how to go about this task? I have volt/ohm meters. Thanks!
  10. I'm curious to know, why (on some Lascala's) is there horizontal bracing on the bass cabinet? You know, an introduced piece of plywood that attaches from the inner sidewall to the "V" within the bass bin. I haven't seen many with this application but it appears to be an add on after the fact. I'm guessing the idea is to stiffen the cabinet to lessen vibrations? Could it be some Lascala's came from the factory that weren't quite as solid as they should have been? Hard to believe (due to small numbers) that this idea came OEM from the factory.
  11. Since I am a potential buyer, I do not have pictures. Does anyone have an estimate of rough Cornwalls?
  12. Looking to see what a fair asking/selling price is for a pair of older Cornwall's? Consecutive #'s beg. with 8638081 Original everything and little rough around the edges but, nothing new veneer won't take care of. Grills are in nice shape. Thanks for any input.
  13. That's a very fair price. I paid a little over that (each) for both of my 884's AND, it took some real arm twisting! Same ol' story, "if only I lived closer". You should be selling it soon. I'm surprised it's not sold yet.
  14. Have you decided what your final asking price will be?
  15. I own 2 of the KPT-884's and for anyone thinking about buying, you won't regret it. Upon origination I had them hooked up to an older EV-CPS2.8 amp and the result was ... so so at best. I just about gave up. After nearly selling the pair it was suggested I purchase the Crown XLS 2502 for them. I did so and whoaaaa, I had finally found that BOOM and THUMP I'd been searching for! When paired with my Khorns and Lascala's, and it makes for a truly satisfying result. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    .

    What's your opinion regarding thump between these and the KPT-884's?
  17. Yes, 510 is familiar within my discovery. My particular driver/horn comes from (on top of ) a KPT-415 configuration. This is the K-69-A driver on an Edgar type wood Tractrix horn Edgar type wood Tractrix horn which is not my horn. I will upload my horn picture tomorrow. I copy & pasted this image more for driver purposes than the horn.
  18. This is a long shot but ... I have one, missing one. Current lens/horn rectangular opening (outside to outside) is 15" x 9", and approx. 5" tall when laying flat upon countertop. Thanks in advance.
  19. Just wondering if anyone has ever owned, or currently owns a pair of KPT-884-SW subwoofers. I'll be hooking up a pair soon and curious what amps have been used to drive them? Any experimentation out there? Looking for some major PUNCH! I want to feel the bass thump my chest! I bought these theater subwoofers with the intention of using them for music, and music only. Tired of being disappointed by 12" & 15" so called subwoofers that do not deliver. Ever been to a concert and you actually feel the tom toms? That point when the bass guitar pushes vibration through you? This is my final attempt at subwoofers before purchasing Jubilee's or something from another maker.
  20. Some people have no pride whatsoever.
  21. I saw that ad when it first generated a VERY long time ago. Those have been relisted several times. I'd say the asking price is a little … inflated? 🤣
  22. I cannot be certain of the actual horn lens itself as the speakers are not with me just now. I only have a clear picture I took of the drivers when I was at my second residence. I'm guessing the lens' have a raised stamp on them no different than other Klipsch horn bodies.
