  1. Not a bad unit and a decent price. I ended up getting rid of mine because it went into safety mode all too often. Look up the reset info and give that to the new owner. I gave it to the person who purchased mine otherwise I would post the button combo for the reset. (I have a lot of big trees around me and the power tends to be briefly interrupted often)
  2. It's a two piece badge.... the plastic base with the 2 spikes that go through the grill... and then the thin cooper piece is glued on top. And we all know klipsch and their luck with glue!
  3. I do occasionally.... but the one set that was on there a while back was waaaaaaaay over priced. I just checked now and didn't see one.
  4. I know this is an odd request, but would you be willing to sell the oval emblem from the one grill? (Then, at least they would both match!!)
  5. I have some. Let me know if you are interested.
  6. The speakers have gone to their next home.
  7. You should have a matching one sometime on Friday! Enjoy.
  8. I have 2 remaining for sale if you are still interested.
  9. I just worked a fingernail under the lip and with a little patience, I worked it up enough to gently pull with one hand while providing pressure on the speaker cone with the other to counteract cone deformation.
  10. That little bit is all it needs. It will vibrate at certain frequencies and drive you nuts!
  11. It's the edges that comes loose on the dustcaps...so, pushing in the center doesn't really do anything. Check the edges on the dustcap... sometimes you can get a fingernail under it...if so, it needs to be removed and re-glued. I used 5 minute epoxy, so it will never come off as you can't really rebuild these drivers. (See my other posts on how this was done on my 5.5's) I also have some excellent condition OEM k-31-K woofers from a KLF 30 if you want to replace the entire woofer. I think 2 are spoken for, another one that's pending, but I have at least one that's still available for sure. Let me know.
  12. Modern technology= trying to think for you...but failing miserably!
  13. Great condition amplifier/preamp. It comes from a smoke and pet free home and has spent its entire life while I owned it in a protected stereo rack connected through a monster power conditioner. I am the second owner. Perfect face, side and back. The first owner must have had a seizure while removing some equipment, because there are scratches on the top metal case. You could repaint it, but I always had something above it, so it wasn't an issue. No remote. (You can pick up a new one for $20-$30 I never bothered to get one as this was always in my dining room set to background listening levels) Garage audition available at time of purchase to verify correct functionality. (Also selling my Rotel 2 ch. amp) Location: 60511 Chicago Burbs Price: $200 for Members Not interested in shipping at this point. There's one on the Bay currently for $360 +$45 shipping Most of the ones recently sold were in the $250-$350 range.

  15. See if you can find yourself a copy of "Picasa 3" It was a free photo editor, but no longer "supported" by google... but I still use it. It's simple and does everything the amateur photographer needs it to do.... plus a whole lot more! I think they no longer support it because it allowed you to keep your pictures on your computer without uploading everything to the cloud... like they want you to do nowadays!
  16. OEM Klipsch dustcap removed from the 10" woofer on a KG 5.5
  17. Oh, and if you want a perfect match, I have one!
  18. https://thelordofbass.com/product-category/loud-speaker-parts/dust-caps/ They aren't a perfect match but they are great! If you do all 4 it will look perfect. They are only a couple-o-dollars each.
  19. Well, I had a moment to put them up against my RF 83's, needless to say, they did not unseat my 83's. I would hope not considering the price differences when they were new. (But, you never know! I never only judge a speaker by it's price tag!) Anyway, If any one is interested in the KG 5.5's let me know and we can work out the details. You know from this thread everything that had been done to them. Location: Chicago Suburbs 60511
  20. Well, as long as you don't turn it up very loud, it will be fine. But lets be honest, no one would ever connect this up and be able to resist the urge to see what it can do! So, I would say you can rewire the sub temporarily to be at an 8 ohm load. (The 18's are dual 2 ohm voice coils from what I remember when I built mine, correct?... so make each driver a 4 ohm load and then run them in series to achieve a safe 8 ohm load.)
  21. That is a great strategy! "Gee honey, I've had them for sale for months now! Not one single person has asked about them... boy, the economy is really in the dumps! I guess we'll just have to just leave them connected for now."
  22. Well, all I am saying is that one might have better luck if they didn't try to sell a 2000 toyota camry for the same price as a 2021 toyota camry, just so they can buy a new camry!
  23. Am I missing something? Yes, the extra drivers are a nice touch if you're clumsy, move a lot or have kids and find yourself constantly damaging your speakers, but.... this is in the Brand new RF-7 III price range. https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/ele/d/hampshire-klipsch-rf-speakers/7284860418.html
  24. When I test them, I have a speaker switch that allows me to set both pairs at the same dB level. This is nice because all too often people perceive louder as better when they are doing an A/B comparison. I am running an Emotiva USP-1 pre-amp into an Emotiva XPA-5 power amp, so really middle of the road equipment that the average stereo enthusiast might own. If there is less distortion, then it may be measurable on equipment, but not perceived by my ears. For me, the Monitor 7's are more enjoyable to listen to. But like a nice glass of wine, each person will enjoy it differently... but they key is to enjoy it!
