How do they sound?

KP-250 II B (no hardware) Heresy HD Industrial 2 round ports 2.5 a KP2.5D 116408 KP-66E 128014 K-42-KP 121240 K-42-EPK B/ W,R 834/894
Ok, I know this reads like hell, this is cut/paste from my spreadsheet about Klipsch pro. 128014 IS the correct vendor number fo the KP66E mid driver 16 ohms is correct. Horn looks a bit odd but has the round cutout and they used a 'shorter' K701 horn on the KSM12 monitors about this same era. I'd say you're dead nuts stock there. HOW DO THEY SOUND??
If anything is blown or raspy sounding, replacement diaphragms are available from Klipsch or PE in the case of the mid driver. You don't need titanium, that's not what the network is voiced for. See that little orange disk cap on the network (in the middle) - that's the KLIP circuit that cuts off if the tweeter line gets close to overload. Back off the juice, it cools off and opens back up. Like an automatic circuit breaker but I've seen em blown up entirely. Easy fix, they have them at Parts Express. Easy Beasy.

I didn't even hook them up. All four diaphragms are either burned or missing. Both woofers have 5.3 ohms so I am assuming they are good. Are you saying that I want phenolic instead of titanium? Where can these be sourced? Bill

I took these part. That's the first time for me. Are there any tricks of the trade? Gonna call Klipsch today.

Hi.. I'm new to this forum.. I just wanna ask some questions cause I have the KP-250-C2 with 2 fuse holder and 2 neutrik connection but no 5 way binding post and I was just wondering if the diaphragm in the mid will fit if i put it in KLF-30? cause I heard that the KP-250-C2 has the TI mid.. I have the same diaphragms shown in the picture and will it be better if i change the horn on the tweeter on the KLF from the KP, cause the KLF doesn't have the tractrix horn like the one on KP-250-C2? thank you guys.. I will really appreciate some info...

I finally ordered new mid and tweeter diaphragms and got them installed. The 250's sound great. They make excellent yard speakers and I ran them off of the tiny TDA7297 chip amp without mods. I am modding one of the amps I bought with parts that rhing recommended, and when I am finished I will do a build thread with a few pics. Bill
