  1. Hi Everyone, I'm a new member but long-time viewer of the Garage Sale and Alerts! threads. I've had a few Klipsch speakers over the years starting with a KLF-C7 which I was too young to really appreciate and gave to a brother of mine ten years ago. Over the weekend that brother dropped off a pair of nice KG4 cabinets completely devoid of everything save the wood and stuffing and asked if I could help him refurbish them. Last year I rebuilt a pair of Polk RT55s and he really liked the results and would like these to complement the C7 as the L/R channel speakers for his TV and also use for stereo music. (I pity his neighbors) I figured it'd be a fun project to rebuild these and already purchased some K-80-K horns and original crossovers from Ebay which should be delivered next week. But here is where I am left to reach out to the community. First woofers, I think the K-80s are a few DB more efficient than the original K-74s. Would this preclude the original/NOS K-8-Ks? Are there FRD/ZMA files around for the K-8s? If those files aren't readily available, or even accurate pictures that I could use to create them, what do you all think would be a good enough replacement? I'm not trying to break the bank with Seas drivers. 🙂 I have some competing goals, it seems, cost, efficiency, bass. Would the passive radiator make up the difference with higher efficiency PA type speakers? e.g. Dayton PA-200? I also want to wire up a new XOver to add a Zobel network, L-Pad and whatnot. I read this entire thread and really like the idea of a 2.5 setup. KG5.5 Update 2.5 Way Conversion - Klipsch Community Has anyone added internal bracing to the enclosure and measured the results? Thanks in advance and if there's an important question I haven't asked please ask for me, I don't know what I don't know and would like to learn.
