    Quartets with issues

    Thanks all, my plan after taking all this in is to find a k-76-k and one more Titanium diaphragm, I see a pair on ebay for around 120 but maybe I'll get lucky and find a single, can't hurt to have a spare or at least be able to compare the original diaphragm to the titanium one. I was wondering about this since the repair kit doesn't have many parts. I could order something that would work about as well and not worry about mashing them around on the panel. I see 4 caps on the schematic 2x 2uf, 1x 1uf, and 1x 80uf. I'll look at the brands you mentioned, thanks again.

    Quartets with issues

    thanks for all the info! what a great introduction to the forum. polyfill gone on the one fully working speaker next up sourcing a tweeter/s and taking care of the crossover. I talked to Bob Crites today and he recommended new crossovers, it's a bit steep for me at $270 considering I wasn't looking for an upgrade, just a repair i didnt even think would be needed...getting the kit appears to be just getting caps, which he mentioned were difficult to put on the quartet board because the replacements are a bit larger. Anyone have any experience with that soldering job? I'd decent but by no means an assassin with a soldering iron. @Alexander I was wondering about widening my search to other models of tweeter that would fit, but is the K75 going to work well with the crossover for a K76? a bit unclear on that. signing off with a sad pic of the crumpled Ti Diaphragm
  3. Just got my first pair of Klipsch quartets of craigslist and unfortunately feeling like I paid full price (575) for something worth much less. these have crites titanium diaphragms, and while checking them out at a low volume they sounded good and looked well maintained. when I brought them home and hooked them up in my space I noticed one sounded a bit brighter than the other, so i opened them up and found a k76k in one and a k84k in the other...I also noticed the diaphragm on the k84 was quite crushed. next thing i noticed was they are full of white cloud-like foam in addition to greenish 1 1/2" thick foam... and the final and most troubling thing I've discovered is when I give them some power (around 90 db on my meter from 3 or 4 feet) one of the quartets tweeters will distort. I swapped the amp channels and the tweeters. It's definitely coming from the one quartet regardless of which tweeter is in it. the other quartet handles the power just fine, so I'm thinking it s crossover issue. so my questions are: does anyone know if this white foam belongs here? Has anyone experienced this sort of crossover malfunction, seems like bass frequencies go right to the tweeter at higher power? does anyone have a spare K7K6
