    Klipsch KG 5.2s Without receiver

    I thought I read that spec somewhere. But you are correct: 105dB: https://www.klipsch.com/products/lascala-floorstanding-speaker John Kuthe...

    Klipsch KG 5.2s Without receiver

    I'd say any decent audio home receiver. More power the better overhead it can handle cleanly. I'm not sure how efficient the KG 5.2's are but my La Scalas are wickedly efficient at like 113dB I think! I have a McIntosh MC-2105 amp speced at 105WPC and I think I run about 1 Watt listening loud John Kuthe...
  3. I first had an Alpine Slim line 12" woofer in that box my auto install guy built for me and when I was listening very loudly and did NOT have the amps gains set correctly I burned the Alpine Slim Line 12"! It smelled very burned. John Kuthe...

    Klipschorns $5000?

    What, whitewater kayaking? Oh HECK YES it's FUN! Can be quite dangerous too! I'm an adrenaline junkie, and before I got into whitewater kayaking I was into SKYDIVING for about a year, then whitewater kayaking ate all my time, mind and money! I've been away from it for about 10 years now though. I HOPE to get back into it before I die. I used to be an ACA Certified Whitewater Kayak Instructor too, until I let my cert. lapse. John Kuthe...

    Not nearly as good as my La Scalas! But they were always a lot lighter for me to carry on my shoulder too! :-) John Kuthe...

    Klipschorns $5000?

    Yep! The legends I heard for for Klipschorns. I was never sure if that name was for the whole speaker or just the Klipsch horn driver, which I now know is key to both the Klipschorn and La Scalas. Different models, etc. Like I said this is an expensive addiction. I considered myself "wealthy" in 2017 but I put most of my spendable inheritance into my house with a few luxuries for myself like my La Scalas, but these or any other Klipschorns would be kinda over the top for me. Oh but what a wonderful luxury they are!!! :-) John Kuthe...

    I emailed to the ad, saying I was thinking about them! Uh oh!! Pretty expensive addiction I've gotten myself into here!! :-) I used to be addicted to buying whitewater kayaks! John Kuthe...

    Klipschorns $5000?

    While I appreciate a nice finish on the outside of loudspeakers, I feel the same way about "Factory sealed" LPs being "worth more" than ones opened and played! If a record album or LP cannot be played it is worthless to ME! I am into the SOUND, not the APPEARANCE!!! ;-) John Kuthe...

    Klipschorns $5000?

    Think this would be good for powering the KHorns? https://stlouis.craigslist.org/ele/d/mcintosh-ma6900/6697477146.html I have a McIntosh MC2105 Solid State power amp powering my La Scalas, and if I got this 200WPC McIntiosh amp behind the KHorns, WOW!! :-) John Kuthe...

    Klipschorns $5000?

    I've always found it kinda silly they way so many seem to think of the outside finish of good quality good sounding speakers is that important. Kind of a form over function thing? John Kuthe...

    Do these looks OK? https://stlouis.craigslist.org/ele/d/beauty-pair-oak-oil-klipsch/6675739147.html I'm not really thinking about replacing my La Scalas, but if I had an extra $5000 around... John Kuthe... John Kuthe...
