I know these are rare, but I thought I would throw it out here: I am thinking about building a Shorthorn model T (lowboy version) for a center channel to go with my early Khorns. The components will be the Stephens Tru-sonic 103LX, K-1000/SAHF, University 4401 and K-1000/5000. I can get the general dimensions, but am unclear about the construction of the rear of the cabinet (see pics below). I assume it has a slot rear port like the S version (second to last pic; The T is supposed to have better bass). Anyone have any pics or plan views? I did find plans some in a search, but links were bad.
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 :-)
I inherited a 1958 Klipsch Shorthorn, corner speaker, and amplifier and sound system from my Grandfather when he passed away. It's currently in storage in Richmond, VA. I'm looking to sell this item and cut down on the amount of items I'm storing. I only took a picture of the serial number, so that I could do some research online, but if there's some real interest in this item, I'll go into storage and take pictures of everything. I have no idea what the going rate for an item like this is, so any additional perspective on what I should be asking for would be much appreciated. Thank you!
