WTB: Pair of Synergy KSF-S5s

Recommended Posts

Folks,

 

I’m having a heck of a time trying to finish off a home theater speaker setup and thought I’d ask for help/pointers here. I'm a grad student at UF in Gainesville, FL and have been piecing together a Klipsch Synergy system from 1997-99 for a few years now. I've got the two fronts (KSF-8.5s), the center (KSF-C5), but I've been looking for the surrounds (KSF-S5) for a molar-grindingly long time with zero luck. I’ve sent a handful of out-of-town-CraigsList “I know I’m not local but would you consider shipping these...” type emails and text messages, but nobody seems keen on boxing up a pair and posting them to me.

 

Any ideas? Anybody on here got a set they’d be willing to ship?

 

Or, alternatively, can you point me to a more-easily-acquired Klipsch substitute for the KSF-S5s? The RS-3s look close, but the completist in me REALLY wants the matching set...

 

 

Fingers crossed,

 

—Rob

Rob,

 

Any Synergy series should be OK that has similar type of drivers and tweeters. I've used KSB's mixed with other Synergy lines all the way up to the ICON series with no issues. Try the KB series also. Surrounds aren't as important as your front end. If you have the front end done, that's the main thing to worry about. Otherwise, why not try for another set of the 8.5's?

 

There are S-1,2,3's on Ebay that would match with the set up. And also a set of SS.5's

Rob, just a word of warning.  This is just the beginning.  Don't be surprised if before the year is up you have a completely different set of Klipsch speakers. :o   We have a way of spending your hard earned $$$ by convincing you that you need to get this or that.  The force can be very hard to resist. ;)  :D
