  1. My refurbished 1948 Klipschorn was initially advertised on eBay as a BuyItNow item priced at $15,000 obo. That ad was cancelled yesterday and a new Auction ad was posted. The starting bid of $1,500 has already been entered. Thanks for looking and allowing me to post about it on the Klipsch Community. Thanks to the Klipsch Historian too, for filling me in on its history, I really appreciate that. https://www.ebay.com/itm/264817431842

  3. The '48 Klipschorn was posted on eBay today. And a video was posted on YouTube, if you'd like to take a look just click the play button on the image. https://www.ebay.com/itm/264785557795
  4. Thanks, yes, I'm told it was the 20th Khorn that was built in the factory and the 41st overall. I would keep it if I didn't need the money but it will soon be listed on eBay as a BuyItNow obo item, haven't yet decided on the price but it will be high. If I don't get a good offer after a few weeks I will list it as an auction item.
  5. Thanks for the compliments guys much appreciated. The refurbished 48 K-horn is finished, I rolled it outside and recorded some video yesterday, it will be posted on YouTube soon.
  6. This is what the 48 Khorn looks like after restoration. The veneers are African Mahogany and Maple.
  7. Almost done with the restoration. Pulled the Magnavox woofer yesterday, DCR is 8.4 (which match the pencil notation written on the magnet exactly). Tested it just now and it sounded great, loud and clear. I had thought about replacing it with a Jensen PWK woofer but I chaged my mind after testing and cleaning it up a bit. Will remove rust from the ALNICO magnet with Naval Jelly, was able to remove most of the corrosion with a flexible sanding sponge. Will be posting the 48 Klipschorn on eBay sometime next week.
  8. I am now in the process of restoring the 1948 Klipschorn - pre-finished panels of African Mahogany with Maple veneered edges. It was so beat up and ugly I had to do it, couldn't help myself.
  9. Cool, thanks for the photos khorn51, that horn looks very interesting! Apparently it's bolted to brackets attached to the corner walls. Thanks for your take on the Magnavox woofer JRH (it sure is an ugly beast). I like the look of the Stephens Tru-Sonic P-52L that's in one of my 50's vintage K-horns
  10. The front side of the driver is very similar to the K 55 V, pretty sure it's an Atlas.
  11. Curious about the K 55 in the attached photo. Most K 55s have a dome-like appearance, this one is different, looks more like a cannister. Is it an earlier version, perhaps the first version ? Thanks in advance.
  12. triceratops, sorry my mistake, the Jensen 15" was priced at $200 from the beginning, don't know why I posted here that it was priced it at $100. Anyhow, I think $200 is a reasonable starting price for such a seldom-found speaker.
