  1. That was about the most fun two guys could have aside from re-building Klipsch speakers. We go way back, Elden helped me by picking up a pair of LSI-BG splits about a hundred years ago and used them until I could get pony express to bring them up here. That's what started the whole madness with him. We've visited each others homes several times, they're our home base when we go down to NOLA for a cruise, and we've been on several ( I can't even count) cruises together. Always good times with a Klipsch brother. I was happy to help out his building project. I tanked out after four days of humping steel, but we got him a good head start on the project. Just wait until the MWM/LS HF system is installed ! whoo boy is that gonna be a jamming shop! Michael Colter
  2. Hi guys, been ages since I've been on here. Union stagehand/audio guy now, totally without gigs for 9 months now. Anyway, thanks for the love! yer buddy, Michael Colter ps it'll be interesting to see if I have a signature after this, I totally forget.
  3. replied to your message with my private email. I'm not on here much any more. Jubilees and KP600 setups still for sale.
  5. Another tip. Consider time alignment if you can, that would be with the voice coils aligned in a vertical plane. Another consideration when mounting pole cup to the top of a subwoofer cabinet is - will the plywood hold the weight of the pole/speaker combo without flexation? If possible, you might look into putting an internal vertical brace near the mount to help spread the weight through the cabinet to the bottom as well.
  6. FULLY horn loaded PA system. PWK would be proud of every one of these we've saved, salvaged, rebuilt. It's a labor of love in most cases. These have a very nice background and subsequently show much less physical wear than many I've been through. For comparison, I use a set of 4-way MCM in my workshop 36x48. Fills the room nicely lol GLWS Michael
  7. I can vouch for their condition and they sound very sweet. GLWS Worth every penny of $1800 guys. get in the truck NOW
  8. Yes that's some massive drivers for the mid-highs!
  9. Will it help if I paint them and reassemble?
  10. Offering at $600 for the PAIR of amplifiers already set up for the Jubilees. TOTAL PRICE JUBILEE SETUP standard Jube bins, BIG 402 horns, K69a drivers AND two Crown Xti2000 amps $5400. These are Indianapolis. I have shipping boxes and ability to get them to a freight dock if that's really what it takes. ALL SHIPPING AND INSURANCE WILL BE BUYER"S RESPONSIBILITY. You get the quote, you do the paperwork etc. Zip here is 46220.
  11. Used for jumpering to another speaker generally. Lots of guys changed the input connector type because the dual banana, although a great deal of contact surface area, is the most brittle, breakable connector for pro use. Others I've seen are XLR, Cannon, but the most modern of all to utilize ( and I've changed most of my pro stuff to this) is the Neutrik NL4 or Speakon connector.
  12. Here's the owners manual/spec sheet for the mighty KP600 system. KP-600-2.pdf
  13. $1600 for all 6 cabinets. 2 - dual 18 KP600SW with 4 NIB woofers, 2 KP600LF with working Klipsch woofers, 2 KP600HF with all working proper drivers, one of the K41 10" is reconed, many of the hf tweeters have NEW diaphragms installed by myself. These were rescued from a barn in FL along with my current MCM stacks ( not for sale), and somewhat refurbished by me. I have done initial bondo work and to my eye they are nearly ready for paint and final assembly. As I'm in the Stagehands union now I work with enormous shows and no longer on the bar band business so haven't had a need to finish this project but these massive babies can be YOURS! Folks I have over $1,000 just in the new 4x18" alone so this really is a deal. There is an older thread from a Pilgrimage many years ago when I'd just gotten these shipped up to Indy ( Imagine Jim Hunter's face when a semi carrying both sets arrived at Klipsch Headquarters!), and Doc brought his little test rig and we ran curves on one stack out here and was amazed at the sound. Anyone who's heard these played at Pilgrimages will attest to the power and clarity of a fully functional set of KP600. Available in Indianapolis.
  14. ... This was a lifetime ago. In late 2008 after this Pilgrimage I built my workshop to house this crazy hobby, a trailer for hauling speakers, and a boat. The shop was my 50th birthday present to myself. I'm now nearly 60! The boat has been sold to a friend, the MCM1900 stacks are still in regular operation, and I'm in my third year of Apprentice training and 'B' list money-making for our local Stagehand's Union IATSE #30. I work the BIG shows at Banker's Life Arena, Lucas Oil Stadium, corporate gigs at our Indiana Convention Center and the like. Semi truck loads of sound and lighting, like a typical rock show will be 20-25 trailers full of gear. I have no use for the KP 600's so they're being sold on another thread over at Garage sale. Still I value all I have learned through this Klipsch forum, tinkering with the loudspeakers over the years, and my oh-so-brief tenure with the company itself here in Indianapolis. Mostly I love to relive some great times with all you crazy guys over the years. This thread really took me back, we used to have such fun listening to music together and just hanging out. What a great time that was in 2008!
  15. I don't think so, because both networks would have an output to Woofer, only on the splits you send it back to the second set of 5-way posts instead of directly to the woofer itself. Where it gets tricky is the separate fuse for the woofer section. Follow the signal path grasshopper.
  16. I've reworked several sets of split LSI and recall it being somewhat complicated. Not only getting inside the box, as the order of disassembly is a bit tricky at first, but that network and wiring. I did a couple messed up at one time as I recall. Take your time and approach it with a clear head is my best advice. I got new fuse holders and 5-way posts from Parts Express and rebuilt them to identical to factory. Never seen any speaker manufacturer than Klipsch rely on fuses for speaker protection but feel strongly about keeping things original as I never used mine for pro live sound, just back yard stuff like most of us.
  17. I could have so much fun with that! I've rebuilt two sets already! BTW I have an extra pair of rebuilt MTM packs ( new piezo, as they age horribly) that I could sell if you need them.
  18. You two guys are both relatively close and between you could make this happen! I'd want to sell them simultaneously if I split up the Jubilees though so work it out between you and let me know. Let's do this!
  19. Yes, probably did but only got response from Dealer-types who weren't willing to pay enough as they merely wished to flip for profit.
  20. Yes mine are - I have three of the LSI-BG split models. They, however are NOT for sale.
  21. $4800 for the Jubilees complete set with cartons. Come and get em. I'm asking $1600 for the KP600 set, keep in mind that I have 4 new K49 woofers NIB with them, worth over $1,000 on their own. Khorns need to do some listening and research.
  22. Just a blurb to get you guys salivating a bit. Hit me up or photos/prices to follow shortly.
  23. KHJ is the 2x12" bass bins, KPT402 is the large format horn, K69a is the driver behind that horn. Standard home setup.
  24. Hi guys, I'll be posting photos soon of some items for sale. Time to repurpose a couple rooms and clear some shop space. Don't feel bad for me, Here's what i'm KEEPING - I'll move the 60th Anniversary Khorns to the gallery, and have a setup of pro gear for an eventual home theater as well as maintaining the MCM1900 for the shop stereo. Oh, and a 3 pack of LSI for outdoor cinema ( that I haven't used in a half dozen years, but NOT selling), as well as keeping some numerous other pairs of pro Klipsch. That should be enough for anyone. I've had fun collecting these over the years and meeting so many of you folks but it's time for these to make music again instead of collecting dust. These will all be FOB Indianapolis NO SHIPPING please don't even ask. I drove to get them, you can drive to pick them up ok? HERE IS WHAT IS FOR SALE- NOTHING ELSE FOR NOW - 1- KP600 complete setup, 'kit' form as I never cared to get into the painting, final assembly/rewiring(if you choose to, original is all still there) , or mounting the 4 NIB K49 woofers (NEW IN BOX) . 6 cabinets with all working drivers (that's 9 speakers per side 2x18, 2x15, 10, 2x mid drivers, 2xK77 tweeters.
