  1. Those are K33J (Jensen P15 LL 3.2 ohm DCR) Woofers. Real sweet hearts.
  2. Who designed E-V's Aristocrat and Baronet ?

    Roy Carlson of EV was their eclosure guru in the 50's
  3. The Centurion is a true front loaded horn. It has a single path from the downward facing throat till it splits at the 2 side exits. It's bass cutoff is in the high 40s'. The closest things EV built to the Klipschorn were the Georgian & the more economical Cardinal.
  4. Cornwall 1 vs Cornwall 2

    This gets screwy but, here goes. The Cornwall (1) of 59 vintage had a K-1000 (1000 cycle) midrange horn & the reflex port was on the rear of the enclosure. In the 60's it was redesigned with the K-600 mid horn & the reflex port on the front of the box. This was billed as the Cornwall "II". I have a pair in storage & the shipping box is printed "Cornwall II". By rights the New Cornwall should be a "IV".
  5. just WOW - JBL in KC

    The only problem is the fact that the 130s' have been reconed. If they were JBL recone kits you're golden BUT, many independent shops used Waldom recone kits and they suck. Good luck.
  6. The last Blu-ray you watched.

    Those Redheads from seattle : 1953 3D..Harmless fluff from the 50s' with super Stereo photography and an aggressive 3 channel soundtrack. If you want to see what superb 3D is all about you can't go wrong with this one.
  7. Khorns?

    I'm going with a 1960 to 1963 build date. Definitely home brew after seeing the woofer mount. I give that time frame because of the drivers & network plus, the top hat was constructed using 3/4 stock & that's post 1956. If the back chamber is still airtight you've got a nice pair of speakers but, not built by Klipsch.
  8. Khorns?

    Duplicate post.
  9. Retaining bars on KHorn woofer motorboard

    The bars were standard for at least the 1st. Forty years of the K-Horns life. Made changing woofers a breeze.
  10. Khorns?

    From the supplied pictures I'm betting on a homebrew. Zoom up on the tailboard & you'll see it's not the way Klipsch does it. The K5j is early 60's vintage together with the early K55V. Would like to see the woofer.
  11. Klipsch Licensed Enclosures

    VITAVOX CN 191 was the British version of the K-Horn.
  12. The Grill wrap around was necessary when the midrange horn was the K5 as it radiated through the side wrap. While unnecessary with the K400 I'm certain the wrap was kept for cosmetic uniformity year to year.
  13. Klipschorn Tophat Thickness?

    Up to 1956 the top hat used 1/2 inch. 3/4 was used after that.
  14. Curious

    It's a 1956 style "C" (unfinished) with an Electro Voice P15wk woofer. What is a bit confusing is the K5j midrange horn is stamped "1960" which, by the shown early K55 mid driver & crossover is of "60" vintage. If you remove the front grill you should see an Electro Voice T 35 (K77) 16 ohms. The whole top section could have been upgraded to the 1960 standard but..The Mid horn was the same in 56 as 1960. So no idea why that part would have been replaced.
  15. "K400" ?Fiberglass? Ebay

    These Are the SpeakerLab clones, the Original fiberglass ones. The "ribbed" version was cast aluminum.
