  1. Interesting thanks. Yeah as mentioned that is a huge difference in sensitivity on the log scale. This should also mean that my pair can take the power of my Adcom 5400 more so than the 6ohm / 94db versions that are mostly prevalent and discussed.
  2. Thanks for the welcome! I have and Adcom 5400 that powers my AR-3a's, I want to hook it up to the KG-4s to see what more power can do for them. As for the sensitivity rating, are you suggesting that the earlier versions Max2 and I have are actually 94db but misbadged? I've read about the 4ohm / 6 ohm stuff being marketing ploy in the mid 80's. But nothing on the variance of sensitivity of these early KG-4s
  3. I got mine about 5 years ago for around 250 minty. Black cabs absolutely love them. As noted here and in other forums they need proper amplification for 2CH stereo for sure. I had them temporarily into a HT denon receiver until I could hook up my Marantz 2230. Night and day difference. One of these I will get a tube amp for them. The bass def needs proper placement, upper midrange and top end very dynamic. Def incredible value for budget audiophile.
  4. Thanks. So much info out there on them having a sensitivity of 94dB @ 1watt/1meter And ours say 91. That's quite a huge difference in speaker sensitivity on a logarithmic scale.
  5. Just pulled out my Black KG-4s out of storage to build out a second system and have some various amplification options. Was always under the assumption these were 6ohm and rated 93/94 db sensitivity, but the type on the back near the speaker inserts says 91db and 4 ohms. Appear to be early models made in 1984. I have read elsewhere that the 6ohm/4ohm discrepancy was merely marketing stuff in the mid 80's. My question is, are these early model KG-4s less sensitive then the of majority KG-4s out there? Thanks in advance.
