Just gauging opinions on using a vintage Crown D-75A to drive the top end of bi amped Klipschorns. I have access to one I can purchase cheap enough to have it gone through and upgraded as necessary as I know it has some age, but then so do I! Thanks in advance for your input. Opinions have varied wildly (as I expected) in other forums. I anticipate more rational responses here!
Paired set (11R713 , 11R714) I believe 1979 Klipschorn speakers in cherry. They are in good condition. Front veneer has a few chips as can be seen in the pictures, light scuffing at bottom toe plate, veneer on one of the speakers has slightly lifted or bubbled. The cloth is all in great condition and the speakers are loud as all hell. My father was the second owner and he said the previous owner had them in an old musty basement which would explain the slight lifting of the veneer (no odor). My father owned them for 15 years and has since passed. These are way too big for any application in my house. I have had them and used them for 5 years but prefer slimmer speakers that can blend in a little better, but these things are ridiculously loud and efficient. I had them on a McIntosh amplifier and they sound great. If you are familiar with these you will know the price is right. $1850 obo text at 815-530-3035 Chicagoland area, local pick up. They can be hooked up to listen too if wanted.
I have in my van my first set of k horns. It's taken me 72 years to get here. It is also my first post on your forum. Thanks to you I bought them from your garage sale drove up and picked them up yesterday. I have heard so much about using low wattage amps for these since they are so efficient. All I have is a sansui 9090db and a ken wood 9100. What do you suggest. I am on my way home to listen to them.
