  1. Thought this might be a good idea, since questions tend to pop up here and there regarding the Epic series speakers. Since the owners of the Epic series generally tend to hold on to them a long time, also thought it'd be nice to have a thread where we can swap info on setups, mods that we've done, problems/issues, or any other info that we've come across. Plus, it'll be interesting to see how many Epic owners are out there and active on the forum... All Epic owners owe Roy Delgado (Chief Bonehead) our thanks for designing these...he did a fantastic job! Below is the information directly from Klipsch on how to determine which of the 3 versions your CF-3/4 are. EPIC Series Production versions – Rev.1, Rev.2, Rev.3 Rev.1 – Start of Production in Spring of 1994 These models had 5" long port tubes Networks used OFC (monster cable looking) clear jacket wiring. Horns in these models were gray in color. Rev.2 – Fall of 1994 These models had shorter 2.5" long port tubes (to raise the box tuning) Networks had a component / value change to correct for the new ports. (The network wire was still the OFC used in Rev.1.) Rev.3 – Summer of 1995 to end of production in 1996 These models had new lighter cone woofers (new vendor) (these cones aren’t nearly as stiff as the originals and can be deformed much easier by pressing on them) Networks were changed to compensate for the new woofers Change in network wiring to colored 16ga. like what is used in Legend KLF networks New horn material that was 20% glass and was painted black. Serial number decoding for EPIC Series models (or any Klipsch model made from 1990-1997(?)) Production Years Description Example 1990-1997(?) DOY Y2Y1 # # # # (135791234)
  2. I collected a few of these a while back to play with... never ended up using any them... They were all labeled K-64-KN so they were originally used/meant to be used in the CF-2 with a K703 horn. You likely already know but in case you don't, this is the exact same driver used in the K-63-KN (CF-3 and CF-4) it was just mated to a K603 horn in that assembly. Speaking of used/meant to be used... I am not fully aware of this guys past life/lives. I know what little I did with it and that the driver still test good but can't say with any certainty how new or used it actually is... just trying to be honest. Driver is dated Nov 4 1995 I have this currently listed on ebay for $130 shipped within the continental US (I would prefer not to ship internationally) Side note: I actually have a CF-2 crossover lying around in the garage somewhere if some one might be interested in that too... no horn though Edit: All of these have been sold off as of Feb 2018
  3. Hoping someone who's owned Epic CF-2 or other Epic series speakers can help - I picked up a pair of Epic CF-2 speakers this week but they don't sound so great. I would have failed them at the demo but thought the space might have had something to do with dissipating bass (1,500 sq. ft. garage with bay doors wide open). What don't I like? Simply put, they aren't nearly as musical as the pair of KG 3.5 I bought two weeks ago. The highs are decent, but mid range and bass are both muddy and poorly defined. The KG 3.5's playing Eva Cassidy "Live at Blues Alley" blow them in detail - and they're not even that detailed! So, what gives - is it possible this is a bum pair and need crossovers replaced? Or is the KG series more musical, more natural-sounding? Is it too much to ask for CF-2's to handle 2-channel duty; are they better as rear surrounds above 80 Hz? Any help would be appreciated - thanks! --Scott O.
  4. I recently picked up a pair of Electro-Voice DH1506 compression drivers (CD) to upgrade my CF-4's. There was nothing wrong with the stock K-63's, but strong endorsements from Moray James and Alexg5775 got me wondering if the already fantastic sounding CF-4's didn't have a little room for improvement. I A/B'd the K-63 and the DH1506 and found them very close in sound. My testing was very informal and the sound was slightly better in the midrange with the DH1506. I wanted to get them measured properly to see if the diaphragms were within spec, so after a quick call to Mustang Guy I was off to the Speaker Ranch to get them measured. As usual, Craig had a better idea. I call his place the Speaker Ranch because his building is so large it's like a free range area where Klipsch speakers can wander and play freely, as loud as they want. There are fully 6 La Scalas set up in a 6.2 configuration, sometimes more. See Mustang Guy's signature for the entire list. It was around 20 or 30 last time I checked. Craig immediately grasped a 1506 which was attached to the CF-4 horn and connected it to the squacker section of the right side La Scala. Then we listened. We set up in the main LP and could hear an immediate difference, probably in favor of the DH1506. I say probably because this was NOT a controlled test, it was very much seat of the pants. We both thought the DH1506 might have been more efficient making that side a little brighter. If there was a difference, it was very little, both CD's sounded fantastic. Certainly one CD could be used interchangeably with the other and in a blind listening test you could not tell which was which. Craig took some measurements of both CD's in a very interesting way, so I think I'll stop here and let him post his comments.

  6. Time to sell my KV-4 - it is in good working order - there are a couple of small nicks on the back corners of the cabinet and the front grill has a small crack in it and a small discolored spot. Looks good - but it is not in mint condition. Really would prefer local pick-up. Thanks!

  8. Been waiting for local pair forever to pop up but no luck yet. Looking for a black pair if possible. Live in St Paul Mn. Willing to pay Fedex freight for delivery.
  9. They look legit, and pretty nice. Not mine, of course. http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/ele/5911212524.html I have a set of these, already, and I love them. The seller is inflating some of the specs, here. And I'm not sure about that price.
  10. Howdy, folks. For the longest time, I had stereo in my bedroom/office for music, and surround sound in my living room for TV and movies. But I've always wanted to have a good music system in the living room, too, where I'm not forced to use something more geared to near-field listening. However, my Pioneer Elite VSX-84tsxi, a great home theatre receiver, is less accomplished in stereo mode. So I was forced to set up a separate system. In my quest to populate it, I fell in love with the Epic line, specifically the version 1 CF-4, resulting in the crowded photo, seen above. I paired them with all sorts of amps/receivers, ranging from the late 1970s to the early 2010s, and they all fell short of expectations. So, after a lot of research, I finally bought a lightly used Peachtree Audio iNova integrated amplifier. It sounds amazing! Plus, one of its aux inputs has a bypass circuit so it can be integrated into a home theatre! A few years ago, the wall in the accompanying photo was a lot less crowded. I can now remove the Polk Monitor70 mkIIs (the ones cowering between the Epics and the TV). However, I bought the CS2 center channel because it's “voice matched” to the 70s. I know the best center channel replacement to go with my CF-4s would be the hard-to-find KV-4. Any decent alternatives? The KV-3? Something more recent, like the RP-25C or RP-250C?
  11. Not mine.. http://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?requestSource=b&adId=1197696425
  12. I have a pair of Epic speakers in need of touch-up paint. Any thoughts specifically for the MDF front face, which appears to be somewhere between flat and semi-glass black? What about for the black veneer on the top and sides? Thx, --Scott
  13. I wish I could go get these, even with black satin finish. Alas, he wants cash only, and I can't make the drive down from D.C. Oh well... http://miami.craigslist.org/mdc/ele/5489419469.html

  15. EDIT: The Ebay auction is ended and somebody else got the horns, so this discussion is now somewhat moot unless another CF-2 horn becomes available soon, which I doubt. Still, if anyone has any opinions for a horn for my center build, please let me know your thoughts. +++ I am looking for a horn for a center speaker DIY build. This will match my CF-4. Is the horn on the CF-2 the same? It is spec'd at 60x90, the same as the CF-4, but I can't tell from the pictures if it is the same. The CF-2 uses the K-64-KN CD, the CF-4 uses the K-63-KN. http://www.ebay.com/itm/KLIPSCH-TRACTRIX-HORN-CF-2-HORN-ONLY-NO-DIAPHRAGM-/391118125584?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5b1074fa10 http://www.klipsch.com/cf-2/details http://www.klipsch.com/cf-4/details +++ Is there an alternative that might work as well or better? The compression driver will be the EV DH1506. All I have is an idea for a center, not a plan. If I didn't get a Klipsch horn, I would probably go with a Denovo 12" SEOS waveguide. I have these in two DIY kits and the sound is fantastic (no horn-y sound, no distortion) and off-axis listening response is likewise excellent. http://www.parts-express.com/denovo-audio-seos-12-waveguide-2-3-bolt-matte-with-1-3-8-18-tpi-adapter--300-7070 Here is the SEOS beside the stock CF-4 KN-63.
  16. I regret that I am even putting this add up. But I am posting here in hopes of finding great and deserving home for my CF-4's. I am moving and have no room for my Klipsch CF-4's. They are in above average condition. They have a few minor scuffs on them, they are over 20 years old, but mechanically sound. And sound wonderful! I want them to go to a good home. I have owned them since 1997. Asking $900 I feel these are priced to sell. I am open to the idea of a some kind of trade. Due to the weight, and size of these, I am asking for a local pick up, or possibly delivering them within a 200 mile radius of Indianapolis IN. For the right terms and buyer we could possibly work something out. Serial Numbers are 302491976 & 302491977
  17. I'm new here, so bear with me if I'm posting in the wrong place or the wrong way. I recently bought a pair of Epic CF-4s and after about two weeks of pure bliss (man, these are nice speakers), one of my woofers started rubbing. I'm desperately looking to buy a replacement (K-30-KN) woofer. Or, if anyone has found a place that can recone these speakers, please let me know.
  18. Edit: The auction ended early, and they apparently sold for the $899. Now we know at least what a pair of good condition CF-4 ver 1's are worth. +++ +++ +++ These are not mine, but the ad says all the right things; Version 1, pristine condition, XO inspected and brought up to spec by Bob Crites. The $899 Buy It Now price isn't outrageous. Berwyn, Illinois, I don't know where that is. Let's see if this sale reflects what many of us think the CF-1 ver 1 should bring. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Klipsch-Epic-CF4-Loudspeakers-Ver-1-/251809614111?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3aa105c91f (I am not affiliated)
