K-43 and K-44

Recommended Posts

K43 is for PA, K44 is the theater version for the Klipschorn.

Can you expand a bit more?

I thought the K33 was the stock Khorn/LaScala/other driver for residential use, rated to 100 (or near it) watts max.

The K43 was made for the SAME speakers (perhaps principly the LaScala?) for industrial use (theater?) and was rated at 200 watts.

I'm not familar with the theater Khorn (the TSCM??), I would have thought they would have used the K43 in there. Evidently that's a wrong presumption?

What is different about theater and PA use?

The k-44 is used in the TSCM and the CP-1 (cornwall pro)

Cool thanks the K-44's look like they have a little smaller magnet than the K-43's so will they take as much power or not?

I used a pair of Klipschorn bottoms with the K44 in a dance club with a 400W amp on them. Crossed at 100hz and driven hard into clipping on a regular basis for over 5 years without a problem.

Magnet size has no bearing on power handling, only BL when comparing magnets of the same composition. Power handling is limited by one of two ways. Either thermal as in the voice coil separating, or by displacement when the air load on the driver affords displacement beyond Xmax at a given voltage and frequency.
