  1. I don't have one to compare to. I looked at google images when I type in B&C DE75-8 in the search box and did not see one with the numbers. All my other searches came up empty. At witts end on next steps. I'll probably buy a good replacement diaphragm then compare sound to see if I should use or change.
  2. Need help understanding what diaphram I have on a B&C DE75-8 that I will be using for my KPT-904 build. It is a goldenish color and has 8904 stamped on it. I have run out of places to check so I am hoping someone on the board might know. I will run with this one to start but would like to know my upgrade options going forward. Will also be selling a few extra ones I have once I get them documented. .
  3. Thanks again. This really helps me get off the ground. Hope I enjoy as much as you have.
  4. Much Thanks - I did just get the 904 bass bins an a set of JBL 4722's. I am setting them up to compare to my Lascala setup. It sounds like I was making this a lot harder than it needs to be. I thought the crossver in the bass bin was a Low Pass so I needed to add a crossover for the Horns.
  5. That is what most of the threads show but there were a few that talked about adjustable crossovers in the downstream side. I may have misunderstood. As you can tell - I am new to this and still trying to figure it out. Should I use a low pass filter on the sub inlet to break the Hi and Low frequencies apart? Then what do I do on the hi side. I do have an extra rebulit Klipsch Type AA crossover set from my LaScalas I could use but it is a 3-way and not a 2-way.
  6. This topic has been correctly re-posted to the 2-channel forum. Please ignore this one.
  7. Need some help deciding on an active crossover for my 2-channel 2-way setup. I listen to all types of music and use Vinyl, CD and R-to-R source materials. I am trying out a number of speaker systems and switching around the horns between different bass bins: My goal is to find the best sounding system to my ears and in my room. This setup is in my home shop so I have a 22" by 24" space to fill and I am not worried about the cosmetics (No WAF involved). It may be I need 2 systems - one for Rock and one for Classical/Jazz. The Speaker components I have or will shortly finish putting together are: Lascalas with KP 480 Bass Bins. - Lascalas have upgraded crossovers, mids and tweeters. KPT 904 system with the K510 Horn - Still building JBL 4722 setup - system running with JBL 3722 horns. Waiting on the drivers and will switch to the 4722 horns. (1.5" vs 1" drivers) May try the JBL 4722 horn on the KPT 904 to see what happens I am using a Rougue Audio Cronus Magnum 2 as my amp/pre-amp. This is an integrated tube amp so I cannot put the crossover between the pre-amp and the amp so it will need to go beteween the amp and the speakers. I will be rolling the tubes a bit to see if it affects the speaker sets differently. Don't think it will but want to confirm. I also run a 12" Velodyne Servo sub. I do not want to bi-amp - I am just looking for a hardware solution utilizing my Rogue. Will be using L-Pads to balance the Hi and Low frequency outputs on the theatre systems. I know the Hi frequencies run hot. My goal is to find the best sounding system to my ears and in my room. I think of the above as a starting point. If I find more equipment I will add to thelineup to listen to. I am on the hunt for putting this system together as cheaply as possible so I will be looking at used equipment. What I need is a good downstream crossover that has a bit of flexibility and does not require extended testing to set up. I want to tweak it with my ears. Once I get the system set up I will get into audio analysis equipment and how to use it but that is in Phase 2 of this project. I have a LOT to learn there and I am just not ready for it. I have researched crossover brands and these seem to be the recommended ones: DBX Ashley Bryston Behringer Xilica Before I get into reading manuals to see which ones are downstream capable and meet my needs I was hoping for some guidance/experience from the forum to shorten the list or, potentially, take it in another direction given the guidelines noted above. I am looking at the 80% solution on these - not the 100% solution. All thoughts are appreciated.
  8. Sorry - its cause I screwed up. I'll move it

  10. The only way he communicates is through Facebook Messenger. I linked the Facebook postings in one of my first messages above. You can go through them to send him a message. Best Don
  11. Visit went well. They are a staright up seller. The equipment is stored indoors in a clean, well lit facility. They are not a reseller - The company upgrades movie theaters - not just the sound systems but the entire theatre. This storage had some speakers from a few of their theatre redo's. I misunderstood that these would be trashed if not sold. They have had them for a while. The do not always save speakers - it is easier for them to demo them. Had good discussions and hopefully they realize that there may be some money in saving them. Talked a lot about the horns and drivers. They did not have any Klipsch horns. Told him about the 402 and 501 and he could probably sell out all that he could find. They will keep that in mind going forward. The 904's were in pretty good shape overall. Dusty and nicked up like you would expect but not beaten up. Inside looked very good and the few woofers I tested (just with a battery) worked fine. Coils had free travel. Some of the speaker wire boxes were busted up a littlle and would need to be replaced. The crossovers in the box looked good on the ones I bought. Again - dusty but no livestock signs. They had about 20- 904's still there. I bought 2 - 904's and 2-480"s (for under my Lascalas) The majority of the speakers were JBL's. I bought 2 - 4722 HF setups with everything except the horn drivers for a very reasonable price. Gonna compare with the 904 once I get it put together. Overall a great trip - wish I could get more but don't have room. Jarred will keep me in mind when more equipment comes in Price list is above. The top JBL line if for the 2374 horn and driver fo the 3722 JBL speaker. He listed it by driver number.
  12. Sorry - but what is the horn lense? I am new to this.
  13. I think they are JBL 2374 and 2384 horns

  15. Found his listings on facebook. There are 2 listings 1. - Bensalem Pa (Philly Area) for JBL Speakers 2. - Hatboro Pa for Amplifiers (ashley). No mention of the Klipsch or JBL equipement. Stock Listed is: 22 - KPT- 904-LF-N at about $160 per 1 - KPT-684-SW at about $300 4 - KP-480/KP-4000-C at about $190 each. I did not see any Klipsch Horns to complete the 904-HF setup. I think they just used them for bass. I told him I would take 2 of the 480"s to put under my Lascalas and 2 of the 904's to play wth. He has a ton of JBLequipment including the bass modules and what looks like about 30 Horns w/ drivers. I think the horns are the JBL 2374"s used in the JBL 3722 speker (also has the bass modules for this speaker) but they may be 2384 model. When I ge down i can measure them and find out. I am going toget a few and install on the 904's to see how they compare to the knock-off 501's. I don't have pricing on the JBL equipment. Please let me let if there is anything I can do to help. I'm about an hour away but retired so more that happy to do what I can.
