I inherited a pair of Klipschorns from my father, who recently passed away.
They sound fantastic!
I grew up with him owning and selling a variety of tube and solid state amps and various types of speakers, including, if I can recall, Alta, Infinity, Polk, Bose 901, Quad, Magnepans, Carver Hologram and Timelens, equalizers, Stax headphones, and the list goes on. He became a big fan of NAD stereo equipment in the 80s. Some of my most fond childhood memories were stereo listening and shopping with my father.
He finally settled on Klipschorns and listened to them for the rest of his life.
Anyhow, enough reminiscing.
I have a couple of restoration questions.
I think this happened during their move. I tried to be very careful, but there are a few scratches on the front of the speakers.
I am wondering how to fix those scratches. Please see links to pictures below.
I was thinking of using these items based on reading the forums here:
Howard Restore-A-Finish Wood Restorer for Cabinets, Furniture, and Other Wood Products, Golden Oak, 8 oz
Homax 10120000 Steel Wool, 12 pad, Super Fine Grade #0000, Rhodes American, Final Finish
Howard Products FW0016 Wood Polish & Conditioner, 16 oz, Orange, 16 Fl Oz
Do I need to put a filler in the scratches? One of them catches my fingernail.
One of the horn mid-range's black paint is coming off at certain spots. Is the metal aluminum or a metal prone to rust? Should I touch it up or leave it alone?
