  1. Has anyone tried just replacing 1 woofer per cabinet?
  2. Some review said the KLF-20 had better bass definition than the KLF-30, and something for certain is that bass players like 10" woofers in their cabinets for a reason. The punch of the 10" is used in most all bass cabinet makers when they aren't using the common 15". You almost never find a 12". If you do it's something old and didn't last long in production. Some bass players use a cabinet with eight 10" woofers only. I did a dirty comparison of one KLF-30 beside one Chorus II (both stock with obvious age), I like the KLF-30. The bass definition stood out to me. The horn is positioned a little too high as others have said. The KLF-20 is a shorter cabinet, I believe and if so it's probably about the right height. But my room is also small. With upgrades to the Chorus II x-over and tweeters of both I might change my mind, obviously. Comping some 20s against 30s would be nice to do.
  3. A new one from Klipsch is available and is $144. Not really interested at that price either. At least it's there if someone wants one. I'll pass.
  4. Still would prefer a replacement horn body. Just need the body, not the driver. Projects are piled high right now.
  5. I saw that thread. It was nonsensical because the seller said he was a "reputable" seller but then asked $350 for it. I disagree. I didn't even pay $200 for this pair of Chorus IIs. EDIT TO ADD. Klipsch Support responded with an available KD-16, which has the rubber surround, priced at $144. I might have bit at $98, but there's a $50 home repair in my future.
  6. I wouldn't expect an original KD16 to have much life left. Have you got personal experience in what Klipsch currently offers for the KD16?
  7. What was the mod and is it somewhere in the technical section?
  8. The Simply Speakers kit won't work for me then, being pleated. My replacement KD16 from the mid 2000s has a rubber surround.
  9. Is the surround pleated or rubber? You got the entire recone kit?
  10. Thank you. Another question: do people use plywood for bracing or plank? The dining room is gonna be a little more messy soon. I paid $131 for these speakers at a thrift store.
  11. Thank you. I emailed that request weeks ago. I got a response a couple weeks later that they're working on replying to a back up of requests. Nothing since then, though.
  12. The back is loose on one of mine, the one with the broken horn body in the other thread. What's the method to remove the back (and front) without damage? The front is not loose yet. Doing a quick A/B to compare the Chorus II bought a few weeks ago, I liked the KLF-30, but was just profiling one song; The Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies Shakin' the Blues, which has well mixed, well defined drums and an articulate, technical drummer.
  13. It fits back together well and cleanly. We've been discussing a repair method in the General forum under Broken horn, ever seen ths happen?
  14. I'll check. We're not a big market but shipping is doable. I think adding the fiberglass would be a good idea too.
