  1. So I’m looking at a pair of brand new inThe crates circa 70s/80s La Scala’s. They are finished in Raw birch, as I understand these are or were sold as entry level price point La Scala’s however I actually find this finish very clean and sexy but I’m wondering to preserve and protect the finish and put a little zip in the finish what most people end up doing to finish them off Cheers
  2. Beautiful cabinets. Very nice play by play on your upgrades, good info to know. Have you tried any type of finishing to the Raw birch, whether it be a tongue oil or one of many different natural sealer’s, oil’s etc.? I asked this as I am looking at a pair of circa 70s/80s la Scala‘s that are brand new in the crate never fired up and the rawness or just natural look of the cabinets are pretty sexy in my opinion however I would think he would want to put some type of finishing oil or something to Preserve the wood. One question I had for you is every panel natural birch plywood or are there any panels that have a veneer on them? Thanks again for the great info got a love this form Cheers
  3. LSBR , LaScala raw birch..... I assume these are not a veneer? If not do you recommend finishing these off with a tongue oil or sealer or???? Is raw birch a desired finish?? Are they hard to come by?? What time period we’re these offered? Thanks for the info!! Cheers
  4. If you could put any woofer/driver in a La Scala what would you select. ....K33, K34 or something else. Cheers
  5. Beautiful pair of AA style crossovers by Dean G. . They are currently in a pair of LaScalas that I am selling and currently I do have a offer on the scholars but the potential buyer would like to buy without crossovers. So here’s an opportunity to grab a pair of Dean’s crossovers NOW !! I waited almost 2 month for these as Deans crossovers are very popular. These are barely broken in and sound amazing! Must sell !! $625

  9. Just thought I would post this, Dave with Field Weld contacted me offered me a great try it now you’ll like it by it deal on his aluminum lens with 120 drivers. I’ve been running them at TV volume for about 24 hours and will start pumping some music through them this evening. If they sound half as good as they look I’ll be pleased. So far initial findings ; first couple hours well,....as they break in they sound like they need broken in, LOL. Since then I’ve run some music through them at the 12 hour mark and they sound very nice . These are a impressive product, machine to the nth degree , They look amazing, looks like it belongs in the space shuttle. I’d be very interested in a drop in 2 inch squaker horn Machined out of aluminum like the tweeter. I spent an extensive amount of time on the phone talking to Dave, he seems to be the real deal I look forward to working with him in the future. I will follow up with results in the near future
  10. So do you think the black lacquer finish had all the front moldings around The top bin and the base bin? The other thing that doesn’t make sense is the woofer that is in these, K 43’s instead of the 33’s.
  11. Light sanding and some stain.... very pleased!!
  12. The code on the tag is LSBB which according to the folks at Klipsch is La Scala Birch black lacquer. He looked it up on some documents however what does not seem to follow true as the cabinets are finished in wood and the only part of this that’s black is the interior base bins, which I am extremely pleased with as I refinished the interior bins and re-painted gloss black and they turned out amazing. I also lightly sanded the cabinets and re-stained and that turned out beautuful as well.
  13. have a circa 79 pair of La ScalasNot having much experience with wood at all, there is some degradation/edge wear where on the top plate, and was wondering if that is raw plywood or if it is veneer. I thought I read somewhere That the La Scala in the 60s and 70s were offered in a raw plywood with no veneer finish. I appreciate your feedback Cheers Don
  14. Thanks!! Great info. So was the K 43 meant to be a professional series release?So was the K 43 meant to be a professional series release?
