Hello Community, This is my first post and I'm hoping I can use your collective knowledge. I have a pair of Klipsch XF-48s and they are quite phenomenal still after 10 years. I've been moving around a lot over the past years and it's possible I did some unwitting damage to one of the RCA plugs. Long story short, I was running speaker wire (speaker level) to the speakers from a Pioneer Elite receiver, IMO they sounded better than being plugged in via RCA but I digress. Now, I've purchased a new preamplifier Schiit Freya+ and was going to let the speakers power themselves and be fed via RCA cables. One of the speakers is fine, the other had a loose plug (last time I checked that was not the case but again I digress), I was quite alarmed and hoped this is not massive damage. Good thing is that sound still comes through good and clear no hum through RCA on the speaker in question. I called Klipsch via telephone and was told I should try to take off the faceplate via the front screws to access a nut that would tighten the RCA plug from the backside. Not being able to remove the faceplate made think of different solutions. I double checked the RCA plug and saw there was some travel but would not travel beyond say 2mm at that point it was very secure. I thought perhaps to get a plastic or rubber washer between the RCA plug and make it secure. Nothing like that was available so, I thought I'd use an old credit card and see if it fits beneath the RCA plug and between the speaker housing, it did. So, I cut two thin strips and had one layer on both sides but it was not snug, I was without too much effort to double it up and the RCA plug is almost as secure as the "good" speaker. Is this a good DIY fix or am I putting undue stress on the plug or the internal wiring? Should I have superglued the plug to the back? I'd like to hear from the community and hopefully find an elegant but most importantly a good solution. Looking forward to your responses, thank you.
About 6 months ago, one of my XF-48's wouldn't power on. I put the the pair in the cupboard and ran my XB-10's as main channel. This morning I tried again to power up the XF-48's but now they both won't turn on. I have checked the fuses and power leads but all is ok. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas on fault cause? Thanks in advance
Hello fellow Klipsch audio fanatics! I have decided to sell my complete 6-piece Klipsch XF-48 home theater system, having upgraded to a pair of Sonus Fabers. This system has been carefully maintained since original ownership and has never been moved (in same space for entire duration of ownership) and is in excellent condition. These speakers have served me really well over the past few years and I am confident they will grant their next owners years of audio goodness. Included are 6 speakers which are detailed as follows: • Two XF-48 tower speakers • One XL-23 LCR center channel speaker • Two XB-10 bookshelf surround speakers (stands not included) • One XW-300d subwoofer There's a Sound & Vision article written about this set from a few years ago with all detailed specs; link is as follows: http://www.soundandvision.com/content/klipsch-xf-48-speaker-system#D8wEAdoE3Uu4TWZQ.97 I have not seen any available sales for this entire system and based on secondary pricing for individual components, the set should sell for ~$1100-1400. I am willing to negotiate. I am based in NYC area so would prefer to sell to someone within a reasonable distance but willing to consider shipping them as well.
