  1. it was the woofer. however, the tweeter part still does that with that particular Chet Baker album. and my Miles Davis album. Something with them horns. I am saving up to do the tweeter and crossover upgrades from crites. so im hoping that will fix it. my power amp is 30+ years old to though. but, one thing at a time. one day, ill get so true heritage klipsch. but these work just fine for now.
  2. it was the woofer. its rubbing the voice coil. I looked and looked and couldn't find a replacement. I did however find a "clone" from Midwest speakers. installed it, and it sounds very nice now.
  3. I have to second the recommendation for the Loki posted above. it was a requirement when I had my Cerwin Vega VS-120's. It really helped. Now, I have the KG4's I run it flat. I am considering Ti tweeter upgrades. but I was becoming worried about the comments of "bad recordings". its a vinyl only system. the post above reminded me, that the loki can room correct for that. So, ill definitely be getting the Ti upgrades one day.
  4. I just wanted to add....while waiting to get my k-8-k either replaced or reconed, I went ahead and bought the clone speaker from Midwest Speaker Repair. seen here: https://www.midwestspeakerrepair.com/shop/home-audio/mw-audio-mw-5082-8-woofer/ while im no audiophile, I think it sounds very close to the original. I cant tell a difference. in case anyone was interested, im happy with it.
  5. I’m just going to put this out there and see. Im looking for a klipsch K-8-K woofer in working order. From a KG4 speaker. Or, a known suitable replacement.
  6. Looks like parts express doesn’t do recone service anymore. Anyone here know of a company who can? Or know of a suitable replacement for the k-8-k woofer?
  7. I didn’t even know they did that. I will certainly look into that.
  8. I recently purchased a pair of KG4. And I love the sound. However, I’m sure I have a bad woofer (k-8-k). I am regularly checking the internet for an oem replacement. No luck yet. I did however find a copy or clone woofer. See link. https://www.midwestspeakerrepair.com/shop/home-audio/mw-audio-mw-5082-8-woofer/ claims to to be an exact copy. I listen with grills on, so the color wouldn’t bother me. Has anybody had any experience with this one? Any advice would help. Thank you.
  9. Hi! I'm new here... So I've been admiring Klipsch speakers from afar for a while now. But I never could afford them. I came across a deal on the Klipsch KG4. which, generally speaking, gets good reviews from people a s an entry level Klipsch speaker. And I have to say, they sound amazing. and they are still all original as far as I can tell. the seller said they were anyway. I know I will need to put some money into these. I was ok with that. Crossovers, Tweeters, maybe cab refinish. they are in good shape. and I don't see myself getting rid of them any time soon. However, after many hours of listening to them last night, if I put my ear up to one of the woofers, I can hear a slight buzz. or a muffeled static-y sound. not really a buzz, hard to explain. also, after putting on Chet Baker, I noticed the tweeter kind of buzz or hiss at the high notes. My question...would this be bad drivers? or bad crossover? the tweeters im not worried about. I plan on getting the Crites tweeters one day. but the woofer is another issue. I started looking this morning and didn't see any on the usual places. could anyone recommend a known good replacement? if it is the woofer. My speakers before these were Cerwin Vega VS-120. and I thought they sounded good. These Klipsch sound so much better. I didn't expect that. anyone want to buy some Vega's? lol
