  1. Thanks for the shout out and kind words Roger!
  2. not familiar with the 501, what horn lens is that?
  3. Lab Gruppen C20:8X (8 channel, 250 watts per channel, adjustable gain) with Xilica FR1 DSP. I attached a couple of pics of the OEM crossovers. They have a KPT-335 sticker on them but I've seen this on all the 510/703 top hats regardless of bass bin used. they're approximatly 8" square and it's only the one crossover, nothing on or in the 904 bass bin. One sticker claims the 904 bass bin will be 3 db higher than the 335 HF/MF but that's definitely not the case. I don't know which capacitors and/or coils go to each driver. Was going to reverse engineer them but had the ALK crossovers laying around and once I realized the drives had the same impedance (splitting hairs) as their original design criteria I hooked them up just to see and to my surprise were perfect (IMHO and REWs). Never looked back and finally went active with great success!
  4. Dave, The stock crossovers were so muted in the low frequencies I couldn't even EQ them close to what I wanted. Not sure they're even the correct crossovers for the dual 15" bass bin. The guys I bought them from had KPT-335s for sale also. When I got mine, the high frequency sections had pieces of tape labeled small speaker so they may have mixed up the upper section of the 335 & 435, not sure. Anyway, I've played around with several crossovers from ALK (AP500/ES5800, ES700 2 way, and ALK Universal). All worked and sounded really good, the AP500/ES500 sounded the best at higher levels but definitely needed more power than the universal to get the same DB level, the ES700 2 way with K-69A driver lost some of the high frequency sparkle but probably would have been a better option with a wider range driver, the universal sounded better at lower listening levels and was very good at high levels so for the money it's the best all around. Even set them up with REW and the plots were perfect. Got lucky that the (2) K-45 15" drivers wired in parallel have almost identical impedance to a single K-33 so they mated well. I'm going full active now with individual channels powering each driver, pushing 800 watts in total to each speaker and they sound better than ever. I've sold off all of the ALKs except the Universals. Figured if I sell the speakers, the buyer will most likely want a passive system and they work exceptionally well, highly recommend them. Mark
  5. Didn't replace them, just passing on some items I don't have room for. Starting a complete house remodel next month so the money will help also. I still have (1) pair of Belles (at dads house) and (3) KPT-435's (my house).
  6. This is true Dave! Just sold a pair of Belles to a guy who gave up his La Scalas of 20 years about 5 years ago and claims he regretted it ever since. He's been cooped up at home and decided it was time to get back into it. His buddy came over to his house for a listen and decided he had to have a pair so they called me up and bought a second pair I had but wasn't planning on selling until they made me an offer i couldn't refuse. Now i'm thinking I should have held out for more... They went to good homes so can't complain, plus made some new friends!
  7. Unfortunately I do not have the Squawker/Tweeter crossover section that's ordered separately and mates to this to go from 2 way to 3 way. You can find more info on ALK's website http://www.alkeng.com/ . Go to the extreme slope crossovers for details. He also has info on applications but I was using them on a Cornscala. You can use them on anything using a K33 woofer (or similarly spec'd driver) and almost any squawker driver that's rated at 8 or 16 ohms. Many use these on Belles or La Scala's in a 2 way that has a horn/driver that won't get down to 500 Hz. Hope this helps...
  8. Bump to the top. No one looking for a 2 way Corncala crossover or modified Belle/La Scala with a horn that wont go to 500 Hz? Make me a reasonable offer (no peanut gallery please ).... Hate to have these collecting dust when they should be used in someones project.
  9. Hello all - I just picked up a pair of LSI Splits and a pair of KP-480 subs (both are all original with factory crossovers and connectors). I was looking for documentation on both sets of speakers along with proper wiring and setup with no luck. Anybody with links or documents that would post or pass them on would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance! Mark
  10. Hi all - I have a pair of ALK Engineering ES700 crossovers for sale. These were used for testing on a pair of speakers that I decided to go active on so no longer need them. They're in perfect condition and working order. Only one is pictured, the other is wrapped up and didn't pull it out for the photo op. I DO NOT have the high frequency crossover to make these 3 way. If you need a 3 way setup you can look for used or get them from ALK. $600 for the pair using PayPal friends and family with the buyer (you) picking up shipping. Box size is 16" W x 16" L x 12" H & 26 lbs, 7 oz shipping from 95136 zip code. USPS from west coast to east coast is almost $100. If you know of a better, less expensive way I'm open to whatever works. Please let me know if you have any questions. Mark
  11. Richard, last name Cranium? Fitting if it’s a scammer.
  12. Bet his wife said to get rid of them so he put the ad up for show. “Sorry honey, I’m trying..., see my ad!”
  13. He had 2 pairs of splits, now none (1 pair are mine and the other's going to Roger). He still has 1 pair of non-splits that are in very good condition, 9 out of 10. Better condition than the splits which I'd consider 7-8 out of 10. The splits have definitely been transported and used more than the non-splits. The seller's a kick in the ***, nice guy. He's a DJ pushing 60 and has been collecting speakers and equipment for 30 years from all over the country. He has so much stuff in multiple garages and trailers you couldn't get to most of it, stacked wall to wall, floor to ceiling. All Pro audio from Klipsch, PV, JBL, CV.... Most he's not moving, yet. Claims there's a Harley in the middle of all of it, I tried by couldn't find it.... LOL
  14. Some in Northern California. Not mine. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/ele/d/hollister-klipsch-la-scalaindustrials/7147991370.html La scala industrials Mint Condition,I Have splits and Single Cabinet type Fiberglass coated very well Kept,Serious buyers only will test on site.
