  1. Hello everyone. Long time reader but my 1st time to post. I have a chance to pick up a pair of 1987 Klipschorns in excellent condition. I was wondering what the fair market value is on these? I just purchased a pair of ash black RF-7 III's brand new about a few months ago and absolutely love them. (Thanks in no small part to what I read on here and YOUTHMAN'S video reviews) But the Horns are kind of a "bucket list" thing with me. I heard my 1st pair back in the early 80's at a local high end audio store and was just totally in awe. I told myself then I would own a pair before I die. (I'm 55 now). Any info will be greatly appreciated. Mike
  2. I have a pair of factory shipping boxes and jigs or frames for the horn section tops. Located in Western NY State. Free to someone who can use them. 1998 build year. Shipping from zip code 14032.

    Need some help

    Just purchased my 1st pair of Klipschorn Kind of a barn find - older lady selling for sick ex-husband as he moves into a senior home. Test in an old house with cheap Sony amp and CD player. Not in corners, small room, but wood floor on a basement. They sounded amazing. Loaded them up drove 2.5 hours home hooked them up - they now sound terrible, no low end and muddy everything else. My space is in a finished basement, so concrete floors, with carpet and pad - 14 foot wall, with K-Horns in the corners. Ceiling is just under 8 ft and back of room is open - 28+ feet. Current system was driving a pair for Forte II's, and they sounded great. Working on posting some photos. Thanks for any help or advice in advance. Moit
  4. Hi gang, First time poster. Thanks for being here. I just went and looked at a pair of Klipschorns (1990, type B, oiled oak). They are in amazing cosmetic shape aside from a few minor nicks - original wicker grilles... all original K-55-M squakers, K-77-M tweeters, and AK-3 crossovers. They were sitting in the middle of a small room side-by-side hooked up to a crappy Yamaha A/V receiver and a JBL active subwoofer??! They sounded pretty awful. I turned off the subwoofer and tried to remove all of the DSP from the amp (don't think I was 100% successful) enough to verify that the tweeters/squakers/drivers were all functional. The only music source I had for the demo was unfortunately over-processed FM radio. I'm aware of the fact that when I get them home and put them in the corners they will sound better and have increased bass response. The current owner said he inherited these from his neighbor 2 years ago when he moved, and exclaimed "they don't make these anymore", and "they CRANK". My longterm goal would be to tri-amp them with active 3-way crossovers and possibly replace some of the diaphrams. He says (true or not) that a guy is coming on Sunday with cash, so I have only a short time to decide. He's $1500 firm for the pair. What do you all think... should I go for it? - Justin
  5. If this isn't a scam, I don't know what is. As they say, if it's too good to be true well, it is!

    Hum Dinger Price on Klipschorns!

    Now this is what I call a Hum Dinger Price on Klipschorns! https://chicago.craigslist.org/sox/ele/6064310838.html
  7. Has anyone tried to enclose the back on their vintage K-horns like Klipsch has done with the new 70 anniv. edition K-horns??? .... also in a related subject, where can I get the 'rubber tubing' looking stuff that i see on some K-horns to 'seal' them into the corner of the room? Thanks all.
  8. Everything in place. Have to get some speaker wire and a couple of longer cables and they will SING! Also will make temporary false corners from plywood with hinges. Figure I'll commission them with a PWK recording, perhaps Flem Ferguson and his Dixieland Band from the 1956 KOSY-Texarkana studio session in 1956. Transferred it today and it is truly awesome. Dave
  9. Just watching a video about Adam Trombly (http://projectearth.com/about/adam-trombly), who was a friend of John Lilly (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_C._Lilly), staying at Lilly's house when diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer and 2-4 months to live, and in constant pain. An Iranian doctor suddenly arrives at the house, having been given a message during meditation to show up with a medical bag filled with Ketamine. As Adam lays on the floor of John Lilly's living room, "with my feet pointed between his two big Klipschorn speakers there..." (24:35) Ep 6 - Adam Trombly Recalls Stories of John C Lilly

    1979 Klipschorns for sale

    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.

    AA Crossovers

    Up for sale - a pair of AA crossovers. These are the original AAs from my ’75 Klipschorns. I dropped in a pair of ALK Universals a while ago, and originally thought I’d keep these ‘just in case’. I realize now that I don’t need to have a fallback for the Universals, so I’m letting these go. With an empty nest (second child is in college) and a few new projects on the near horizon, I am reluctantly starting to thin out my ‘extra’ toys in anticipation if the inevitable “let’s downsize” discussion with the wife. I will also be listing a few pairs of speakers in the near future. I can provide additional pics if requested. Asking $150 $125 plus shipping. SOLD Pending funds to Fjd.

  15. Hello all, I have a pair of 50th Anniversary K-Horns. They survived Katrina in New Orleans, (in upper floor, so no water or damage from that). However, the rats during the flood...did seem to have taken a shine to the wires on some of my stereo equipment, apparently the crossover of the Khorns too. I played them for quite a while and they worked...but at a point, I started hearing hum..almost 60 cycle stuff...and eventually they just went out. I looked and the crossover area, the transformers look chewed up, missing covering, and multiple components look in bad shape. I'd contacted Klipsch in Hope assuming I could get them serviced there, but apparently they don't service their own goods?!?! I was shocked. They advised me to check the forums and that someone here could recommend to me whom to contact to get them fixed. I have the crossover unit detached (a friend of mine with tools helped). I could ship it somewhere but need a reputable repair contact if anyone knows of one. Thanks in advance...I really miss my tunes!!! Cayenne

    Klipschorns for sale

    Just listed my Khorns for sale on Craigslist in LA, specifically Glendale. 1989 vintage, AK-2 crossovers, and Lacquered Oak. Excellent shape. Asking $3300. Purchased new and hate to sell them, but must downsize. Pictures on CList. These are for pickup only!
  17. Hi Klipsch forums, This is my first post here, so thanks in advance to the community, you guys rock. About 6 months ago I came across a pair of Klipschorns for sale locally here in Alaska (I’m terrified to think what the shipping might have been on these) for a steal at $800. I checked them out and they sounded absolutely, completely amazing. They are in great shape and all the major veneer is near perfect with a few pieces of veneer side stripping missing, shouldn’t be too hard to fix. The seller inherited them and didn’t know much about them but thought they were from 1986. I have been doing my homework on the Khorns but I am having a difficult time figuring out exactly which model/year these horns are. I more than suspect the crossovers are not original and am wondering if the mid-horns have been altered by some previous Klipsch fan in the past. I have tried to match up the x-over with the photos by Crites and these certainly don’t fit. Here are some photos of the x-over, tweeter horn, mid driver, and the overall speakers. Any help with the ID of these things is appreciated. And any advice for future upgrades/restorations for a young guy on a budget is very much appreciated. Oh, I currently have them running off a Marantz 1060, at least until I build my dream tube amp. Thanks again K-forums, as I learn more about these knockout speakers I’ll be sure to give back to the forums. Cameron W …. And for the record, I paid more for these speakers than I did for my car.
