Klipsch Carrying Capacity: Vehicle Specs / Best Practices

Recommended Posts

My 1974 La Scalas arrived from the vintage hi-fi shop in a small pickup with a camper top, wrapped in moving blankets.  That was the beginning of this madness.

 

My vehicle was a Dodge Grand Caravan, a 1998 model that I drove for many years.  Now I have a 2012 model, but haven't picked up any speakers with it yet.

 

Anyway, a pair of Heresy IIs sat easily on the 3rd seat of the '98 model.

 

A pair of Belles fit easily in the mid section, with the 2nd seat removed.

 

Finally, a pair or La Scala IIs in their original 4 boxes just barely fit inside the Grand Caravan.  It was really full, and that was with the 2nd seat removed.

 

The newer van has Stow-N-Go seats, which would make it much easier to stow the 2nd and 3rd row seats in the floor and load in from the back.

Yes, this is for real! (2010 Fusion)

Woah. Good to know. Possibly making a trip from sardegna back home to amsterdam with some cornwall IIIs and trying to figure out what car I'll need to rent

Indeed my friend.  '05 Outback, two R-115SW's with room to spare

One pair of La Scala's, well lets just say I have done that a time or two as well :) - inches to spare

My little Subaru is a Klipsch hauling beast :P

 

My '07 Forester easily carries standard LaScalas. It wouldn't work if they were in boxes, though. They go in crossways and fit with an inch or so to spare between the wheel wells.

 

TIP:

If you fold seats down, have a piece of 1/2 inch mdf/particle board cut to fit between the wheel wells. This was the seat hinges and seams on the floor are covered. With an old wool blanket, anything you lay in there will easily slide up to the back of the front seats.

Apparently you can fit 2 la scalas inside an 89 gmc jimmy 2 door, and you get the bonus of your friends thinking your nuts for having speakers worth over twice the value of your vehicle ;)
