KP-301 back plate needed

Recommended Posts

Looking for help finding a Klipsch KP-301 back plate that holds speaker connects and fuses (see image)

I bought a pair on craigslist and love them running with a Yamaha M-65. Amp. One of the speakers had the back plate missing and the guy just wired generic speaker terminals on a piece of plywood over the hole. I would like some help if anyone has some parted 301's or know of a good source to find the actual Klipsch back plate. 

 

Thanks, 

 

Bob

'jack cup' is what you're looking for. You can get suitable replacements from Parts Express ( although some cutting may be required). 

 

I have never seen an XLR terminal used for speaker input on Klipsch until now. I'd thiink that was was a user modification, were there not a diagram printed on the cup label with the 'pin outs' for that terminal. You never know what you'll find here on the FOrum! 

 

 I would recommend using a Neutrik NL4 locking type connector. If you take the jack cup off and use a 15/16 flat wood bit you can create the hole to mount it.

My KP-201s have them, too!

most horrible connectors ever for loudspeakers, engineered for low voltages only.
