Ordered some K-33-E's from Klipsch the other day and received them today. I was pretty disappointed... Even before opening one of them, you could tell it wasn't packaged well, and it wasn't. No plastic bag and nothing to stop it from knocking around. I requested a replacement for the one driver as it looks beat up. Hopefully CS is easy to work with. 

 

That's thr driver cocked at an angle.  It fell soon after this picture. The box looks like an outer box to the other box.

Packaged very different...

Picked up some A-55-G's.  I'll probably install tomorrow and see what I think.

Did I miss the thread? Looking for it....

I put the A-55's in when I got home from work today. Not much to comment on yet. They may seem a tad lower in volume, but they sound good. I'll probably need to listen to them for awhile. I did rerun Audessy and it did change the EQ a touch. I forgot to take a before and after pic. 

 

I likely will not make a thread about, but will when I completely refinish the speakers over winter.

You had the stock 78 LS with the k55vs right?

Esoteric mods such as these are more in the area of nuanced change rather than stark differences.

So only someone with a specialized knowledge (Esoteric) can tell?  Sounds like a speaker cable slogan.

Mine came with K-77-M squawkers, from the previous owner. They sounded great as well. 

 

The CT-120 was very noticeable, but they also complete the highs that the K-77's can't reach.

Not explicitly knowledge, but that driver isn't really geared towards someone that can't hear the difference between the various k-55's. It's built for the people trying to source the k-55-v variant, due to its preferred sonic qualities (and rarity). So I'm inclined to say I'm using the term esoteric as it pertains to a person's ability to hear nuances in difference gear, rather than knowledge or capability to understand.

I know what sounds good to me, and what doesn't to me. It'll be different than someone else's preferences and we can debate all day long in person about this or that. Some people, however, simply can't hear (literally, or to comprehend) the nuanced differences between different crossovers, caps, amps, EQ settings, etc. They can usually tell the difference between speakers.

 

I don't have a golden ear by any sense, but I can certainly discern subtle differences in sound, along with hearing a system and knowing whether or not it fits into my established range of preference.

Agreed.

 

It also helps imho that a person listen to something a certain way for a lot of hours. Months or more maybe before making changes that will have a subtle change. In my experience thats when you hear smaller things right away after being completely adjusted to the former.

 

He just got his speakers not that long ago so maybe that is part of it also.

Got ahold of Klipsch... They are sending me out a new driver and told me to keep the other. Very easy to work with!

Dewalt cordless 20v drill. A couple more tools and I'll be completely battery powered around the house.

 

Time will tell but so far I've gone completely Dewalt and they all work pretty darn good......no lack of power except maybe the blower but it works good enough for just blowing off grass clippings.4be94b7d5f6963a29e8d8d36e490e916.jpg
