We have a pair of these at work that have been sitting around for a long time 10+ years. Hopefully will know next week. I offered $400 for them.

Good luck, if you get then for that price you did wonderful.

Haven't got a real good look at them since they are in their travel cases. but from what I saw they look in pretty decent shape. :)

Even rough it's a great deal, easy to move, sound great for outside also.

That is interesting. Klipsch LaScala and Dalquist DQ-10s in the same photo.

From low power needs to mega power needs.

Kinda reminds me of my own journey.

LaScalas are the better choice.


It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

Those were the first Klipsch speakers that I bought. I got them for around 400 as well. That was over ten years ago and it's what brought me to this forum. I now have had and still do have every heritage model, except Belles. Those are great speakers, good luck.

Thanks guys, Hopefully they'll sound at least close to as good as my KLF 30's sound. :)

The Heritage sound of LaScalas will sound as good as the 30's but "different." I have Heritage (Cornwall III's) in a 2 ch system and grew up with K-Horns and LaScalas. Have the 30's in a HT system. They're all great, but have different sonic qualities. Best of luck on the purchase.

I would have thought the LaScalas would sound way better, imho.

If you like lean, lean (lean) bass and cheese-grater HF, then I would agree with you.
