  1. Anyone have specs on the 1964 Khorn? Do they all have the funky tuning box on top?

  5. I'm looking to add a center speaker between 2 widely spaced khorns. I can make up a mixer box from the figure in Paul Klipsch's Dope from Hope http://assets.klipsch.com/files/Dope_740700_v14n4.pdf but need advice as to whether I can use any stereo amp with a stereo-mono switch or if something like the Sony TA-N55ES is needed. The Sony appears to have dedicated mono input on the back. Any suggestions for readily available amps that would be suitable?
  6. We have had this speaker since it was brand new. It needs a new home. Excellent Condition. Works great. Located in Houston. Asking $2000 Here's the complete list of Klipsch we have and are planning on selling: 1 1952 KHorn - $2000 1 196x's KHorn - $1500 2 Cornwalls - - $1500 ( Pair) 2 Belle's - $3000 ( Pair ) 4 Heresey's H700 (Consecutive serial numbers) - $1000 (each) 1 DB6 Amp and 'matching' PreAmp and Tone Control (Make offer) 1 Dual 701 Turntable. (Make Offer) 1 Unknown model VHS HiFi Recorder NOT FOR SALE! Reasonable offers will be given consideration! Thanks, -Kyle
  7. Earlier today I modified my Type A Khorn crossovers to support the 4500Hz CT-120 crossover point. I did it in such a way that I could nearly instantly A/B original/4500Hz by using a DPDT switch to introduce an additional 2uF capacitance in parallel with the 2uF tweeter cap and also a 500uH inductor into the squawker path. Note that you CANNOT perform this test while using the stock K77; as others have pointed out, it cannot handle the additional power supplied to it by the increased bandwidth. My listening choices were three very familiar tracks (to me, anyway) Steven Wilson - Hand. Cannot. Erase. - Track 1 : First Regret / 3 Years Older Nidarosdomens jentekor & TrondheimSolistene - MAGNIFICAT - Track 4 : Et misericordia Nidarosdomens jentekor & TrondheimSolistene - MAGNIFICAT - Track 5: Fecit potentiam I can definitely hear a difference in the midrange when I A/B the mods. Quite a lot of the harshness in the midrange is greatly reduced. This is most apparent to me in the female vocals on Track 5 of MAGNIFICAT. I liked it so much that I listened to a few hours of Steely Dan, Ozric Tentacles, Bucky Pizzarelli, and Animals as Leaders... after which I stopped the A/B and made the mods more permanent. For those interested in the diagram, I can provide it as a PM on request.
  8. I poked around and I don't see this so thought I would ask... how big a corner does a KHorn require. ie- What is the distance from the corner in the room to the outside corner of the speaker that is against the wall?
  9. No affiliation just ran across them. Guy sounds like he doesn't want to give them up but alas... THE WIFE. http://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649288968-klipsch-kornerhorns/
  10. So I saw a listing this morning for replica Klipschorn cabinets, made to PWK specs. No drivers or crossovers. The owner recommends re-veneering since they were built 30 years ago. Would you go for it? If so, what would be your total budget for the cabs, drivers and crossovers? How much work would it take to do it right?
  11. Wondering if anyone is interested in trading these 1976 Quad ESL 57's (physically near mint/internally need attention) for some Klipsch Heritage line: Heresy, cornwall, lascala, belle, rf-7, chorus, forte, etc. Winner of auction did not send payment/pickup again in eBay and had to re-list (again 4/19), but open to trades/ offers. Im here in Miami, Florida 33190, if anyone interested let me know. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1976-Quad-ESL-57-Black-Maple-IN-FLORIDA-NO-SHIPPING-/152061169875?
  12. Hi -So this is a unique pair I'm selling. My father-in-law was an audio engineer and scientist for Martin Marietta back in the day (yes, he was literally a rocket scientist). In his spare time he handmade exquisite spanish guitars and dabbled in all things high-end audio. He assembled this pair of Klipschorns using individual, original parts and then constructed the cabinets from original plans. The bass drivers are Electro Voice 18WK, -of course, they are stunning drivers. The mid-drivers are Electro Voice 55K drivers which he then hand-cast ceramic horns for with a friend from the lab -very smooth sounding. The tweeters are Electro Voice T350's. The cabinets are rough plywood; he never got around to finishing the veneer on them.. I know, too bad. Cross-overs were manufactured by a friend. How do they sound? Simply put; stunning. They truly can reproduce full orchestral music at concert volume. Debussy's la Mar will bring tears to your eyes... I kid you not. They're the bee's knees. Why am I selling them? They're in our basement and we're moving in a month. I am sad to say we don't have room for them in our new (smaller) home. He gave them to me years ago and I have his blessing to sell them now. They really deserve to go to someone who knows what they're capable of and who's willing to complete the construction/restoration. What's the price? Email me with an offer and we can talk. I'm mostly concerned that they go to a good home. Phil philm162@gmail.com
  13. These speakers came with my house and were clearly treasured by the original owner. Sadly, they are wasted on me and are now seeking a good home. I have read thru the forums so have some (very) limited knowledge about what they are. The Klipschorn pair have consecutive serial nos. 8P125 & 126 and are the model KB-BR which I think means Birch. They might have been the unfinished models and the owner added the finish (note that in the attached pics it looks like they don't match but they do). They are in very good condition. However, we were not as good caretakers as the owner and they do have some small fraying of the speaker material on the very back edge. The 1957 Shorthorn is model SPI-15 and serial 803. This is also in very good condition. There are some very small pulls in the material on the front and a minor scratch on the top. Additionally there is a 4th speaker that I know pretty much nothing about. All the speakers were checked recently by an audio tech and found to be in good working order. I have attached some pictures. They are available for inspection & pickup from Wilmington, NC. I will consider all reasonable offers. Please let me know if you have questions or need add'l pix. Thank you for looking :-)
