  4. From ad: I am selling a pair of Klipsch La Scala speakers in pretty much mint condition. I am selling for a friend of mine he passed away and his wife wants to sell these so what they go for new and what I'm selling them for it's pretty much a steal just make an offer. Text me for pics..computer screwed up Type LS BLS Chuck Text: 847-636-6763 http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/ele/5742685628.html No affiliation. They are from 1985 with AL crossovers. It looks like they have glass tops, I asked for photos of the tops. He isn't sure of a price. Make an offer, they look very nice (although, I only have a picture of one of them).

  8. I tried my best to purchase Matt's La Scalas but the distance made it tough (I'm in Montgomery, AL) and by the time I figured out my pony express they were gone. But alas... the wife and I were headed to Atlanta for dinner and a show this past weekend and on a whim I thought... I should check the Atlanta Criagslist! LOL Found a nice original pair from a gentlemen in Marietta (see my post in alerts for his Chorus he has for sale). I'm not sure of the year yet... if they are like the Heresy date code, I think these are 1980 or 1981. They are all original with a couple of dings and scratches but darn nice for their age. Left our hotel Sunday morning in downtown Atlanta and went and picked them up. It's a 3 hour drive home with a good chance of rain so moving blankets and a tarp were in order. Made it home just in time to beat the rain. I plan to rebuild the crossovers but they sure sound great as is!! I loved my Heresies but the La Scala? WOW. Very nice. I'm a happy guy! I'm driving these with an M-504 Onkyo Integra right now. not sure which system will eventually be "the one" but for now this will work. My room is almost 700 sq ft as it used to be the garage so I have plenty of room to open them up. I have a pair of Cerwin Vega CL-215's running in the rear of the room as well. The La Scalas are so sensitive, you can barely here the CV's! LOL This is a good thing in my book as they just add a little bottom end to the room with their dual 15's.
  9. I'm just asking for someone's opinion on the value of two brand new 1970s La Scalas still in their original shipping boxes. I'm undecided whether to sell them and need some guidance. I picked them up at the factory in Hope Arkansas about 40 years ago and they've been kept in storage since then. I believe the cabinets are unfinished birch.
  10. There's a pair of Classic RF-7 speakers for sale in my area, with factory-upgraded crossovers. I'm interested but not finding much info on them. Can anyone tell me: - How do Classic RF-7's compare with RF-7II's sonically? - Are Classic RF-7's better for 2-channel music or 5.1 home theater? What types of music or movies are they best suited for? (my AVR is a Yamaha A-3000, my 2-channel amps are Odyssey Stratos Monos) - When would you choose La Scala's over Classic RF-7's or RF-7II's? Thanks in advance for enabling my latest obsession...

  12. Is this missing the LF section or are they usually on the bottom?
  13. I just pick my first pair and 1/2 of La Scalas and wanted to remove the woofer to sand down the bass bin unit. My question is how can I pry the lid off without messing up the veneer? It feels very tight and stuck and I believe there must be a glue holding them together. Also, what is a good wood putty that accepts stain well, any help would be appreciated.

  15. I am cobbling together all of the electronics equipment that I have to put together a home theater. I don't think these components go together particularly well, but maybe someone can shed some light. Here is what I have: Yamaha RX-V1800 7.1 A/V Receiver A pair of La Scalas for the Front or 2-Mission 774 Floor standing Loudspeakers A pair of Klipsch RP160M for the rear Additional Surround options: 2-Bic Venturi V52 Surround Speakers or 2-Boston Acoustic CR55 Surround Speakers Klipsch Synergy C2 Center Speaker Velodyne CT-100 Powered Subwoofer My problem is that my room is 11X20 and I want it to do double duty. The La Scalas currently are connected to a Marantz 2045 and a Music Hall MMF2.2 turntable which are located on the short far wall of the room. The sweet spot for listening is right smack dab in the middle of my sofa about 10 feet away from the speakers or 12' away from the wall. So there isn't much room for additional speakers up front. I could place Mission 774s in between the La Scalas just on the outside edge of the flat screen that is mounted directly on the wall. The receivers and turntable will go on a crazy stand that I am building just below the tv or at the back of the room behind the sofa. (I haven't decided yet.) My preference would be to somehow use the La Scalas for the front (home theater) and for listening to vinyl. Then I can use the Synergy C2 for the center and the Velodyne CT-00 sub. Finally the BA CR55s surround and the RP160s in the rear. Thoughts? Should I scrap the idea of using the La Scalas for the home theater front channel? Would it be wrong to stand the 774s on top of the La Scalas (Maybe I can put some carpet in between)?<-- seems like a very bad idea.
  16. Hello everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster. I recently, about 6 months ago, acquired a set of La Scala's via CL at a very affordable price. They were road speakers (maybe) and covered in carpet. They sounded awesome but looked pretty rough (NOT wife approved for the living room). But the sound brings tears to my eyes (in a good way) with certain music. Sooooo I decided to modify the La Scala's (gasp). And one of the main reasons I modified it to a Khornish is because we just moved into a new house and the living room has large cubbies on either side of the TV that will act as a large corner for the doghouse. So I made a new front end on the backside of the La Scala so that the horns are now forward and the bassbin faces back into the cubbies. I painted the exteriors with Duratex and layed some rosewood veneer on the front. I also upgraded to Crites 120 tweeters and the new crossover to boot. I've included some of the pics. I should be done with them tomorrow morning and be able to test them out then. I have no skills (I'm good at demo) so this was a test for my meager skills and patience. Have to have the wife help me align the speakers for mounting and then we are all done! Any questions or ideas (or criticisms) are welcome. Enjoy the speaker porn I christen these the Mini-K's!
  17. Earlier than I ever expected the garage system starts to rock 2016. Thank God that ground hog saw his shadow!! Mark
  18. Just wanted to thank Michael for the KLPSCH tags. Looking good! Mark
  19. EDIT: Black La Scala Sold see new post here: https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/159993-fs-klipsch-la-scalas-fastrac-crites-xos-1900obo/ I have 3 La Scalas for sale near St. Louis, pickup only. All horns have been upgraded and will come with sale along with original K-400's. I do have the crossovers currently upgraded to Crites but they will not be included in the sale as i have another project in mind for them. However if you would like to have a listen we can arrange so you can see how the puppies sing with the new crossovers. I also have the original type AA crossovers that will hold their own as well and are no slouch. I had these setup for home theater LCR and they were amazing. Currently have 2 setup upstairs in stereo and 1 downstairs in a temporary center channel til i finish my project. The veneer is starting to peel on the bottoms but overall these are nice pieces and i get complements. The center channel is painted black as you can see in the photos. Good pieces install new veneer or paint. I'm currently doing a DIY project just because and am not getting rid of these for any other reason than me being bored. I'll post a link to the craigslist add as well. Looking to get $2400/obo, will consider trades for mono block/pre-amp combo. http://stlouis.craigslist.org/ele/5274176256.html Thank you for looking, Justin A.
  20. I recently refurbished a pair of La Scala Industrial Splits. There's a thread about all that In the technical/modifications section. Today my wife decided to listen to the result of my labors. She loved hearing the Stones, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, and whatever else I could come up with as long as it was loud. Said it was the best set of speakers we've ever owned. I was shocked. She's really never shown much interest in my music hobby. And I've known her since 1975. She even thought my stories about PWK were interesting. What's up with that? Mark
  21. I bought these LSI's about a year ago. They need just about everything, woofers, wiring, fuse holders, and major cosmetic restoration. I decided to get them to play music first and replaced everything that was either broke or needed replaced. Bought K-33 woofers off that auction site and the rest from Parts Express. Put them back together over the past week. Turned them on this morning. My oh my they sound much better than I ever thought they could. My wife, who upon first seeing them said never bring them in the house, told me those ugly things sound really nice. So it looks like the upper and lowers are going to get refurbished. Here's what they look like now: I'll post more pics as I break them down and begin to work on the cabs. Mark
  22. I have a pair of Vintage (end of 1978) Klipsch La Scala floor standing speakers, consecutive serial numbers in near perfect condition. They are birch with a walnut lacquer stain. I am reaching out to the community to get a feel for an asking price for local pick up in Los Angeles. Attached are some pictures of the beasts...thank you
  23. Up for sale are a pair of amazing La Scala industrial Splits. They are upgraded to the hilt. Fully braced cabinet using Volti kit, with grills covered in Klispch cloth. Full rewired Converted to 2way operation using fastlane audio Eliptrac 400 and Massive Monster B&C DE750... (Think big and go bigger). Crossovers are ALK AP12-500s with Orig K43s doing the heavy lifting. This are lighting fast and don’t fall down the way la scala's can when pushed. Selling for parts cost. If they don’t sell Ill turn them into my garage speakers with a Kenzie amp :-). Asking $2400 and pretty firm on it. I will assist in shipping if customer desires. I can write paragraphs about the sound but its not my nature. These sound wonderful. I had to rebalance the network when Dave Braced them for me as the Bass output increase so much. The Bass reproduction remains fast but is much fuller sounding than any la scala Ive heard... Sounding like a sub is well intergrated. The Eliptrac 400 and B&C DE750 create a sound stage stories large. Want scale... this has it in spades. Play a well recorded mix and youll be able to place the instruments in air. Justin 323-868-9722 Thanks
  24. Elijah Wood tweeted us last night with a picture of his Klipsch La Scala and the Klipsch Hobbit t-shirt! For those wondering, we don't pay for Elijah to use La Scalas. He's just a big fan who tweeted us one day about it. Apparently, he is a big-time audiophile. Check out the tubes!
