Question for everybody: Interested in Custom Heritage Speakers?

Recommended Posts

If you want to get into this century, look at bamboo.  It's renewable and extremely hard.  There's a ton of good looking stuff out there as well.

American walnut is Black Walnut, goes by a few other names as well.

 

Knots are normally unwanted in quality veneer.

One thing I would loved to have seen offered, is an ALL RAW BIRCH La Scala II with Cane Grill... even a raw birch Klipschorn with REAL cane.

How about offering the Jubilee bass bin (and the other Cinema bass cabinets) as unfinished "Birch Raw" like the LaScala I...

Personally, I think a pair of KPT-684's in a clear Birch Lacquer finish (to match my LaScalas) would merit some serious consideration.

I asked this question in the Klipsch Pro subforum "Are Klipsch Pro(Cinema) cabinets available unfinished?" The answer was yes

see post 12 and 16,17

 

Where'd my link to the other thread go ??????   Try again

'Beauty Panel' - the term I coined when Roy, Trey and Iwere getting requests from you guys for a way to prettify the Jubilee LF cabinet. I understand that this has been available for quite some time and that several of the Forum guys own such magnificent beauties.

Teak Oiled (sustainable of course) with Cane

A wood 402 horn

A wood 510 horn

Heresy speaker made of a material like Corian (like Mark Daniel's book shelf speakers)

My number one choice would be one like this if it were limited to 10 pair

Brazilian Rosewood, my favorite of all time! Pecan or hickory would be nice, and a change of pace, too, and possible to match to furniture in the room. I am not really into extremely "LOUD" wood patterns/colors/contrasts, since the affordability of a room full of furniture to match the speakers would be impossible for MOST pockets...just saying...the SOUND coming out of the speakers will be what sets Klipsch apart from the others, the wood is secondary for me.

Wood is so passe`.  If possum is out of the question, then good old American Alligator would absolutely rock!  There's no way I could resist some alligator heritage.

Actually, a Japanese black lacquer would be pretty stunning, either shiny or buffed a bit.

 

Dave

yes, with cane grills would be incredible.

Conventional thinking.  Nice but meh.  Gator.  Exotic.  Something other than wood.  For Stew, tomato skin perhaps.  Skin them alive eh stew?

I'd buy it if it were covered in gator skin.

How many do you have hanging in your closet?

It's so obvious and perfect.  Gator would set the standard.  Wood?  Pshaw.  It's been done ad nauseum.  People have no imagination, but once you present them with the next thing, they gobble it down.
