The info in the Klipsch products portion of this website for the MCM-4 has some old information. I told Amy about it at one point. They finally have the right picture now though. The MB-KPT-XII has not been available for 2-3 years. I have the latest. It is the KPT-305. That is what is in the picture I posted above, and in Klipsch products section. The older XII was a 12" driver on a tractrix horn, the replacement 305 is an 8" driver on a modified tractrix horn (K-402). You have to be careful of the delays, and crossover frequencies too. i have seen several different implementations. I don't use any of those. The cinema brochure has a lot of setup info but it is for "behind the screen".

I can see now that I have the older K-510 UHF horn on my setup. No mumps.

KPT-MCM-4 Grand + 2 KPT-684 subs, '73 Cornwalls (C DB 15), ' Single '77 LaScala (LS BR), '81 Heresys (HOL), '83 Heresys (HWO).

Thanks for the update, it is interesting following the evolution of a great cinema system! chris

[The original MSSM used a 10 in Cetec Gauss driver.]

Mid bass Horn MSSM In this horn there is a Gauss 3181, but I know the original component is K41. Dont know how the Gauss was found in it. Do you know the parameters of this K41? It should be considered good as the Gauss?

I suspect you have the correct Klipsch sourced driver in your MSSM. Some T/S specs on the Gauss 3181 can be found here -


Have fun with your resto project chris

This is a picture of the newest MCM-4 setup. Old MCM bass bins, and newest mid-bass, and upper frequency horns. Also shown are the current KPT-684 subs.

Edit: Sorry, not sure why pic won't load. Tried a couple of times.
