  1. Although the stickers are removed, I believe these are Klipsch KLF-20's. Great shape, work well. Local pickup only. In Fountain Hills, AZ (close to Scottsdale, AZ). Asking $800 for the pair. KSF-10.5's, KLF-C7 and KV3's below: Also have (I believe) are a pair of KSF-10.5's. The foot on it is broken (pictured), but rests fine. We're going to be repairing at time of this post, but want full disclosure that one foot was repaired. But, sits level even though foot is off. Speakers work great. Asking $400. KLF-C7 Center Channel speaker is available. Great shape, works great. Pictured below. Asking $250. KV3 Center Channel speaker (oak) is available. Great shape, works great. Pictured below. Asking $200
  2. Just a note that the Women's Board for the Oakland Museum of Calif has a pair of Klipsch La Scala AL3 Floor Standing Speakers (s/n 186141) with Birch Plywood Cabinets very good condition with minor scuffing on the side of one speaker and top rear corner of one cabinet has a minor chip in the top layer. They are priced at $1400 for the sale which lasts thru April 3rd. Check out the website: Home - White Elephant Sale for specifics on sale dates and reservations. They have been tested and regularly entertain the volunteers in the warehouse. All proceeds from the White Elephant sale go to support the Oakland Museum of Calif. I think this is an exceptional price.If you have interest in purchasing these please reply with questions as I volunteer at the warehouse and sale.
  3. I am trying to recap a pair of RF-3s using some old info I have found on the site. I have attached the schematic for reference. I am unable to find the 4.5uF caps from Dayton Audio. All I see are 4.3uF and 4.7uf. a) what would the difference be running one of these two? b) does anyone have a recommendation besides Dayton Audio that would have a 4.5uF cap available? My apologies if I have posted this in the wrong forum. If so, please let me know the best place to pose this question. Thank you. Klipsch RF-3 crossover schematics.pdf
  4. Posted these 2 speakers a couple of years ago and had a few hits but was too busy with work to keep up... now I'd really like to get them out of my garage. Also including the Yamaha reciever pictured. I don't want to ship these monsters so I'd prefer someone that can come pick them up ASAP but if the price is right and you want to pay for shipping by all means just make an offer. I have more pictures here on Craigslist Austin. Make an offer and tell me when you can get them in a private message with some kind of contact info or reply to the craigslist post. Thanks yall!

    KG4 or KG5.5

    I have a chance to buy a pair of KG4's or KG5.5's. Asking the experienced Klipsch guys/gals here which is the better and smoother sounding speaker. The sellers are asking 500 for the pair. Thanks for your help. Both appear to be in excellent condition.
  6. Still for sale are my one-owner Klipsch RP-5 speakers (a pair) at a new lower price. $300 takes the pair! Thanks, Chris
  7. Pair of Klipsch KG 1.5 Bookshelf speakers for sale. Good condition. Sound awesome. So Cal 805 area code. https://photos.app.goo.gl/Se8ETNVuWC2VRvnE8
  8. The theater room we are trying to set this up is 33 feet long and 16 feet wide. Looking to build a very good movie theatre system with budget around $12,000.

Klipsch RP-140SA REFR PREM ATMOS.BK - pair 3. Klipsch- 8060FA-2-way FS SPKR W/DBY - Pair 4. Klipsch - RP280FA DOLBY ATMOS Front SPKR - Pair Now what of these can I use and what new i need to buy. need suggestions on Receiver as well please. Looking to build like a 11 point system. All suggestions welcome.
  9. Any feedback on this model? I might be looking at a pair locally but I have no first hand experience with this speaker.
  10. I have a Onkyo Tx-nr686 i bought last year and i am currently running a old set of sony book shelf speakers and a center channel that are 100 watts and 8 ohms in a 5 speaker set up. I am looking to finally upgrade my speakers. I was hoping to be able to do tower speakers for the fronts and the bookshelf ones in the back with a new center channel. But i don't want to throw away money if my system isn't powerful enough to get the potential benefits. My question is what wattage and ohm ratting should i be looking for? Not looking to spend a fortune on the speakers but i have looked at the polk t series and monitor series 2 , the sony core series and the klipsch if i can find the right sale. Any help would be appropriated. Thank you in advance.
  11. I have the original RC7 up for sale that goes with the RF7’s if anyone is looking. Excellent shape cosmetically as well as functionality. I am the original owner. Im located in Maine - 04240 - willing to ship at buyers expense as well as meet a reasonable distance if needed.
  12. Up for sale are my KPT456’s have used them for the last 3 years in my main two channel system. These speakers truly are amazing sounding. Both HF and LF crossovers were updated to factory specs as well as the 1132 horn/diaphragms when I bought them. These will bring someone many years of listening pleasure! Just look at the specs included - real nice frequency response! Highly sensitive at 104db lower dynamic listening levels are ideal as are concert level if desired. Those of you that have experienced these in a proper setup know what Im talking about, I really hate to see them go but I must sell due to health conditions and downsizing. Everything you need to know - Specs and pics included. Can be picked up in Maine or arrangement can be made for delivery. Priced to sell 1500 takes them.
  13. Hi Folks, I'm looking for a model number and repair parts. The speakers are about 35-40 years old or more (guessing). They weigh about 50 lbs each (guessing). Light Oak cabinets. Top element is marked 'Traktrix'. Label on the back but it is blank, see picture. I could not find any S/N. Dimensions are 12.25" W, 17.5" D, 37.5" H These were damaged in a flood, and the first thing I need to do is replace some of the feet - they are spikes that press fit into the bottom of the speakers, and fit into an outer plastic sleeve/foot to rest on a hardwood floor. Any help is appreciated - thanks!
  14. I am planning to buy Klipsch Reference series speakers for my 7.1 home theater setup. I was told that Energy is bought by Klipsch way back in 2006 and is using the same technology as 'Energy Connoisseur'. If that is true, why would i need to spend $2000+ for Klipsch Reference models or $3000+ for Klipsch Reference premiere models when i can get 'Energy Connoisseur' under $1000? Please clarify the confusion about the technology difference between Klipsch reference/premiere vs Energy Cannoisseur.
  15. I just got my RP 600Ms. Im used to using banana plugs. The terminal connectors look like they have a center plug that can be removed. I tried and couldnt see how to get the plug out. Am I incorrect about this or can banana be used on this speaker?
  16. Hi everyone, I've been using Klipsch products for around 15 years and love them. I finally got around to dedicating a room for my home theater and it's working pretty good. I went for an Atmos 7.1.4 setup. But I'm not sure I have my speakers identified or placed correctly. I don't know much about Auro 3D except I think it is not as popular for formats on many DVDs at this point. I was thinking Auro 3D and was thinking of putting a VOG speaker in the middle of the ceiling, but would rather concentrate on getting Atmos 7.1.4 setup properly. The image I included shows the general layout of my room. My TV is a Sony 75" XBR75X900F 4K, my receiver is a Denon AVR-X6400H (no additional amps). Everything sounds really good as is, or at least I think it does. For tuning / reference I use the DTS-Dolby & Atmos Reference Blu Ray's from 2016, the Atmos samples seem to place the sounds where I would expect them (at least I think it does) when looking at the visual video reference on my TV. So I guess my questions is: is it OK to have the SL/SR, RHL/RHR and SBL/SBR all in the ceiling? Should I relocate any of these speakers for a better or more proper Atmos experience? My seating is the Octane Bolt XS-400 recliners and are located about 11 ft from the back wall and they can't be moved forward. When sitting in my middle recliner I'm roughly 11 ft from the TV display to my nose. If I relocate the side surrounds to the walls, they would be further out by 6 to 7 feet vs in ceiling where they are located now. This is the only big change I was thinking could be possible. Thanks in advance for any guidance you may be able to offer.
  17. ITEM SOLD. Thanks. Sub is available--I'll get around to listing it sometime. $725 IS FOR SOURCE SPEAKERS ONLY. GROTTO SUB IS $350. LOCAL PICKUP 19380 ONLY. Or, you can pay and arrange for U-Ship or other shipping. Condition is 9/10. As a second owner, I never have rated anything over 8/10; but these are in such perfect condition I will break my rule. Pet-free, kid free, smoke free, dust free home. The tilt-able bases allow the vertical angle to be set for seated or standing listeners. A very cool idea and can be used with or without the original spikes. Martin Logan CLS2 Source. Hybrid stats with cone woofers that integrate quite nicely with panels. Always kept covered. Vacuumed with a Kirby G4 ('nuff said) horsehair brush very carefully, LIGHTLY and gently several times per year, although they did not need it because I have electrostatic air filters on furnace/AC system and due to allergies always use filtered air in the house year round. I do not think you will ever find a nicer pair than these Martin Logan Source CLS electrostatic hybrid speakers in this ad! I will be sad to see them go, but I have not used them in a year. They have been sock-stored in my living room, displaced by Merlin VSM-M speakers I picked up locally. They are ready to be picked up at the front door. My 15W Cyrus Brenneman Stereo-15 EL84 amplifier drove them fabulously in a 13' X 18' X 8' living room open to dining room. So much so, that I did not feel I needed the Grotto subwoofer, in fact, guests at first did not believe the powerful lows coming from the Source were WITHOUT the subwoofer on. But, if you take time and attention, the Grotto will blend in just marvelously and seamlessly. For Rap/RnB/HH music, a sub is almost always helpful, of course, and a large room will benefit from the Grotto or any tight musical sub. Please see pictures at Audioasylum or Audiomart. Thanks. Grotto is available separately for $350 and I can do a deal if someone buys both--picked up at front door. https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649631749-martin-logan-source-speakers-immaculate-condition-grotto-subwoofer-optional/ Unless you are OCD, these speakers are flawless. They were always kept covered by me and the first owner--in fact--we both babied these. The platform they come with is unique in that by just twisting the panels 180 degrees around, you can raise the tilt 15 degrees for parties with standing guests, or leave them level. Ingenious design. I read that Martin Logan put significant engineering effort into the panel and bass integration and the new CLS2 bracing that is now on all their speakers. These have tremendous gal appeal. Available for front door pickup in West Chester, PA 19380. They fit easily in a 4 dr sedan like a Honda Accord or Acura TL. Comes with ALL accessories all in EXCELLENT condition. Rating them 8/10 as I am the second owner. You will not be disappointed; what you get is what is described, always. Thank you. Martin Logan Grotto subwoofer is excellent condition is available separately at $350. Rating this 7/10 because it has some slight smudges not noticeable from a distance. It is quite in nice shape--and c'mon, it's a sub that sits in a corner. This got hardly used. My significant other loved these speakers, but low frequencies make her tense!

  18. HEY! I have the r-28f speakers, and I hate the look of the front feet. Any ideas on what I can do instead? I know these speakers have a high sensitivity so I'm trying to be careful here
  19. I am new to this so I have a question that might have been already answered. Can I have my book shelf speakers set up on their side (horizontally)? Would it affect performance? I currently have tight set up for my turntable and my speakers would fit much better this way. Right now I am running it with my Klipsch B-100 but I also have some R-41Ms I could switch them out for. What would you recommend?
  20. Hello! I am trying to decide between buying a pair of klipsch forte 2 that the seller says have "recapped crossovers and updated tweeter diaphragms" for $800 or a pair of rogers studio 1s for $700 they both appear to be in fantastic condition littles scrapes but other than that they look great. Has anyone heard both speakers to help me decide?
  21. If any of you have looked at my other main post, I'm beginning to restore a pair of Speakerlab K horns and have been asking for advice. Since my new digital multi-meter came in yesterday, I decided to go out to the garage to test my existing drivers and tweeter to check for continuity and measure impedance. Tweeter - K-77-M or equivalent (x1) - PASS (measuring about 6.5 ohms (is that right?)) Midrange horn drivers (x2) - EV 1823M - PASS (measuring about 8 ohms each) Woofer - here's where I ran into trouble. One is gone, pulled for some project of @rigma's. The other one has been safely secured in its bass bin since the 70's. When I say secured, I mean SECURED. It was overbuilt in the way of German cars, tanks and aircraft. I believe had these been on the Titanic, you could have pulled them from the sunken wreckage and there's a good chance they would play once drained. I had to remove at least 15 screws that were completely coated in thick silicone and tightened into threaded inserts by scraping them clean, one by one. Then I had to use a razor to cut through even more silicone and get a small pry bar to separate the "access panel" from the bin. That's where I messed up. I should have known. The speaker cable going to the driver had also been still securely soldered to the driver inside, which pulled the little soldering tabs loose from the speaker. Damn. After removing 3 wingnuts, 1 3/4" nut and two wood screws securing the motor board to the cabinet (then prying it loose with said pry bar), the speaker came out. It is a Speakerlab W1500D 4-ohm woofer and seems to be in OK shape (minus my screwing up the connecting tabs). I was able to test it by connecting the multi-meter probes to the little wires coming off the woofer. It does PASS continuity and looks to be reading 4.5 ohms(?) My hands were a little shaky by this point. So, CAN the driver be repaired? Is it WORTH being repaired and finding a similar K-33 or equivalent? How much money did @rigma spend on sealants in 1970-whatever and what is that in today's dollars? These and other questions linger. The line to take shots at me forms to your left. The line for helpful comments, on your right. Thanks!
  22. Greetings everybody! I am looking for an experienced speaker box builder who would be able to build a noteworthy hi fi system strong enough to satisfy a small venue. Cash is ready! I tried looking for some woodwork studios but no have speaker experience, all other hifi systems owners and buidlers that i know stopped building them. Unfortunately my knowledge is not enough to make a top notch hifi hence why i am asking you guys! Big big thanks, hope to hear from you soon! best
  23. Planning to buy a pair of R 5800 W II and CDT 5800 C II for our home theater. The room is 28' x 14' and these are going in-ceiling and in-wall (rear) Are these the matching brackets? http://www.klipsch.com/products/architectural-accessories#ik-800-w http://www.klipsch.com/products/architectural-accessories#me-800-c Do these brackets add much value to the home theater experience?

  24. So I recently upgraded my Klipsch RP-150M bookshelf speakers that I had for about 3 years to the Forte III’s in my audio setup a few days ago. Wow...all I have to say, biggest improvement I have seen so far! I have been experimenting with placement, currently have them about 12-13inches from the back wall in my apt., slight toe-in and 6-7 feet apart. They are about 13 feet from main listening position. Sounding pretty good but does anyone have any recommendations for me to improve the sound more? Also I have heard that these speakers need time to break in to sound their best, is this true? Any and all comments are appreciated!👍🏻 - Matt
