WANTED Single KLIPSCHORN 1960-ish K-5-J MID

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired a single Klipschorn SN1703 from about 1960 with the K-5-J mid horn and K-500/5000 crossover.  I know it's a long shot, but I'll looking for another single speaker like this one to make a stereo pair.  Please let me lnow if you have one to sell or if you can give me advice on where I might find one.

It's like the cornwall is peeking out from behind saying "hey, I'm still here". What happened to the other one from which you acquired this one?

From what I understand, and I may be wrong. Back in the day they used to sell these as Mono Speakers. So there might not have been a second one that was purchased. But like I said I could be completely wrong

In case you don't find a twin for this rare bird:

 

The Khorn is an excellent mono speaker and plenty loud to fill a big room on one amp channel. Mono has a lot going for it, every spot in the room is an equally sweet spot. You could always biamp it if you want to use both sides of a stereo amp :)

 

It's much easier to find a room that works with one Khorn than two. You just need a single corner, not need for an ideal-sized wall with two adjacent usable corners.

If you can fin a pair OP, I might be inclined to buy the second.
