  1. I have a pair of La Scala from 1979 with AA crossovers. I would like to know what listening value does putting in a new Type AA Pair crossover system would do? I am currently playing the La Scala through a McIntosh MA252 which I am enjoying. Want to know if it is worth the change over? Thanks M O'Neill
  2. This is an updated post now that the bass bins are done. I just completed a pair of La Scalas clones and bass bins. Although I am not completely satisfied with the finish I chose, the La Scalas do sound AMAZING, and that is what counts. I may re-do them next summer. Project was about a month from start of research to plugging them in. I wish I had researched staining Baltic Birch before doing it. For those interested in the particulars: Mid-range horn is the Eliptrac 400 and and the tweeter horn is the Eliptract HF - I modified the motorboard and the speaker sides 5" taller to accomodate the Eliptrac 400. The openings in the motorboards were cut with a CNC router for exact fits. I left the horns natural MDF and then stained them. I deliberately left traces of the rings in the Eliptrac 400 as I like the look. The construction is all 3/4" Baltic Birch. I may go back and include the braces if the resonance issue I have read about becomes a problem. The drives and crossovers are all Bob Crites. Tweeter is the CT 120. Mid-range is the A-55G mounted to the Eliptrac 400 with an PS 50 aluminum adapter. Woofer is the CW 1526 (Stamped frame). The crossover is the AL3. As to the bass bins, the grills in the front of the tubes pop in and out although I have to admit I cannot hear any difference. I cut the 4" diameter PVC tubes to a length of 7" in accordance with comments I reviewed in the forums. Yes, I know that the bass bins are narrower than the speakers. Some idiot (me) cut the top and bottom of the bins from the dimensions of the Chamber Bottom (22 1/4" x 23 3/4") based on the attached plans. They should have been 23 3/ 4" by 23 3/4". I do have enough wood to make another pair and may do that next summer when I refinish the speakers. I did catch that the lid for the bass bin in the plans is backwards. Mine also have internal bracing, and corner reinforcements, and supports I made for the 4" tubes. I am presently using an Yamaha RX A3070 with the pre-outs for the La Scala clones routed through a completely restored and refurbished Phase Linear 400 Series Two. The system has to do double duty between an Audio/Video system and a stereo.
  3. I am in love with these La Scalas and would like to found out "how they did it" finiis, veneer (oak?), grill support and all the other details. This is the look I am after for my really beat up 1976 La Scalas. Thanks to all.

  5. Hi everyone - I got rid of my nice floor standing speakers a few years back when I remodeled and put in wall / ceiling speakers. Well they are fine to watch TV - but man I sure miss listening to "good sound." So I have decided to purchase some nice Klipsch speakers. Im leaning toward the Klipshorn - but I am worried about my room layout. The room is about 20x30 - the speakers would be about 15 feet apart - one side - perfect corner to go in - the other side - is like a 3/4 corner - what I mean by that is one side of the corner is normal but the other side the wall sticks out only about 18" - so the speaker would stick passed the wall about 8 to 9 inches. Beyond the little 18" wall it opens to a hallway - the next wall is about 3 feet away. Also Im wondering about acoustics. My room has NO carpet - the floor is all tile, hallway is wood. Ceilings are 9 feet high. Also the kitchen opens up into that room- kinda like a big L - its like an open design house - one big room. Could I put Khorns in the room or would the sound be lost and or not sound good? I am located in the SF bay area, Livermore to be exact. I have not found a place to listen to Khorns (I havnt heard them in 25 years probably) There is a dealer about a 2 hour drive - but he only has La Scala II on demo. I have thought about buying a pair of used La Scala's but they are not very good looking except for the ones only a few years old. The other downside I keep reading about, a lot of people on here say if you use the La Scala's you should run a Sub with them. The speakers would just be used for music - not hooked up to home entertainment. More than likely I would be using a Fisher 500c to run them. Any feed back would be appreciated. and any info on where I could hear some Khorns - that would also be appreciated. Any members in the area that run an older set - sure would like to hear them to. Thanks and have a great day, Ted
  6. Hi everyone, I'm in search of La Scalas for my Summer DJ setup. These will be paired with my SVS PB16 Ultra subwoofers. My budget is flexible. AL3 LS-BR's in good condition is my preference. Black will also be ok. LS2's are a budget possibility if they actually exist, but I understand that's a unicorn market. I'm monitoring FB, Craigslist, OfferUp, etc... Feel free to forward any ads, but a friend of a friend with 3 pairs in the garage would a nice occurrence! Thank you very much. - Brad
  7. for the past 4 nights...not really trying to post pad; just bored.
  8. Making my morning rounds on craigslist yesterday I spotted a pair of La Scalla industrial that were located in Rhode Island . The "Hook was set" when I read the price of $400. I emailed at 8:30 and got a call back from the seller an hour later and made the appointment to have a look. One was described as functioning and sounding "good", the other, Not So good. So I got the address which was about an hour from home and got the cash and some Fuel and set off. What I found when I saw them were a pair of Non split cabs that were from an estate where one of the cabs was brutalized for who knows why. The side was pried apart and the top lifted but the dog house was intact. The seller was firm on the price so I finally agreed. We loaded them into the back of my F250 and I was on my way and home by 1:30 . When I got home and pulled out the component's of the damaged unit to further assess the possibility to re-glue it I believe it will be possible to fix. The damaged LSI is missing both handle so I'll need a pair but otherwise it is complete. The damaged LSI (I have not gotten into the other cab yet) has a K43 steel frame, K55M with aluminum K400 horn, K77M and a AL crossover network. Cabinets have black spatter paint with rounded over tops and openings for the K77M and K400. The pair is sequential and built in the first week of 1985 . It is supposed to be a nice weekend so I'll bring it outside with all of my clamps at the ready to glue and nail it back together. Hope everyone has a great weekend... Sorry, no pictures as the camera is broke.
  9. I've got a couple of industrial La Scalas, and would like to clean them up a bit...What's the best way to clean the surfaces? I have (for lack of a better term) the "Rhino liner" surfaces with aluminum trim. Not using them much outside anymore, so I'd like to clean them up for my "man cave"!
  10. Selling my pair of 1989 klipsch La Scalas. They come with the original type Al crossover. I purchased the Crites A/4500 crossovers and CT120 tweeters. ($455 total when I purchased them) I also had him drop the mids down 3db on the crossovers. This tamed the mids some and brought out more bass. You can reverse this if you would like. I have before and after pictures if you prefer to go back to original Crites settings. The Type AL still sounds good and gives you 2 options when you are listening to them. Both are included in the sale. The speakers are still in great shape obviously but aren't perfect. The only real thing that needs to be pointed out, besides the fact that the area that holds the crossovers needs a good dusting, is that the tops have some small areas to take note of. I added a big 2X2 piece of tile with felt on the bottom to the tops of the La Scalas (shown in pictures) This gave me the ability to place a lamp or an amp on the tops without concern for damaging them. They Still sound fantastic. Local pickup only. No returns and No refunds. Make me an offer. Enjoy!
  11. Just sharing link for hookup bid @ $200 right now in Chattanooga TN https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=143&acctid=12364
  12. I'm trying to find out more about upcoming price increase for La Scalas. I hear the special edition AL5 will be $12,000 a pair. But what will the more standard ones cost? And, what is the difference between the special and regular versions? Thanks.
  13. Been enjoying my La scalas. They are a bit stained/dirty? I tried the beeswax/orange paste wipe on wipe off and didnt really notice a difference. Do i need to sand/buff and then what to seal it? They are raw birch and i love that look so want to keep that look and not stain/color/tint them..... Any advice???
  14. I am trying to figure out my options for a new center speaker. My current setup is: Left front and Right front: Cornscalas Center KLF C-7 Left rear and right rear: La Scalas Atmos ceiling CDT 5800-C-2 Left and right surrounds RP-252 I feel my center is holding my system back and am looking for something that is more appropriate. Some options I am considering are: 1) Cornscala 2) La Scala 3) Cornwall Those are the obvious contenders. Would a pair of Chorus work too? Are there any other options I should consider? I keep looking for a single of one of those, but haven’t found one secondhand yet.
  15. I am looking for a pair of ALK Crossovers for my La Scalas. Let me know what you have.

  19. I have been reading this forum for a little while and have found so much information. It is truly a great resource for Klipsch owners. I have looked high and low to see if there has been a related post and could not find one so I am posting seeking some advice. I recently acquired a pair of La Scala speakers for what I thought was a good price. I am about to rip out and rebuild a built in "bar" area and a room that has my pool table. My only option to make this fit is to build the LaScala's into the bar. I have attached a photo of them placed where they would go, they would just be set back into the bar against the wall(photo attached). My major concern is that building them in will make them sound muffled or give them an "echo". The fronts would be flush or about 1" in front of the cabinet opening. I am building this so I can build it the way I want or need to. I am hoping LaScala's are a good speaker to do this with since they are not rear ported etc... Has anyone tried this with success? Or have any tips or tricks to make an install like this work? As a side note, I am not looking for the sound to be perfect. This is obviously a rec room and the pool table is right in the middle of the sound field, I am just looking for a somewhat clear sound and reducing "boomy" sound if I can with this type of install. In this photo I placed them right up against the current bar and it sounded pretty good. ...on a side note I included the speaker tag. From info I found on this site, these are from 1980 and are Birch Lacquer with a factory walnut stain? Is that correct? I have a pair of Hersey speakers that are Oiled Walnut and these defiantly look like they have a lacquer finish compared to those. Any regular maintenance that needs to be done to this type of finish? I greatly appreciate any advice or feedback! Jereme
  20. Hello! I live in Lincoln, NE and am selling a pair of 1997 La Scala's. The Original Birch Raw finish has slight bumps and nicks, but is in very good condition. These have sat in the previous owners residence since they were bought new in 1997 and the previous owner did not have kids or a dog, so the grills are in amazing shape. HERE IS A LINK TO MORE PHOTOS: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1BkeJtMdUcS7_psS19kfyZOwBgRIFxFo3 Made by Klipsch, Inc in Hope, Arkansas USAModel Number: LS BIR RAW 17Serial Numbers are consecutive: 107796507 & 107796508 Crossovers: TYPE AL-3Horns: K-55-MThese were given to me because of my pro-audio interest, but I'm new to the high end HiFi scene. The original owner paid approx $5,000 for the pair in 1997 and kept them in amazing condition over the years. I submitted a ticket to Klipsch to find out the origin and retail price and what Klipsch told me matches what the original owner remembered about their value, adjust for inflation and slight wear. I'm open to offers, no low-ballers! Local pickup and cash payment in Lincoln, NE. If you want them shipped, we'll have to work out a deal for that. Send me a message and make me an offer!
