KP-250 built before 2000

Recommended Posts

I have two pairs of KP-250's that are different than any I have had before. They have a cloth on masonite grille cover, K-42-K woofers instead of KP-42-KP's and a build date QA tag from 1989. The only information I can find from Klipsch talks about  2000 to 2004 for KP-250 builds. These are far more musical than the later KP-250's I have had.  Does anyone have information on these?

They appear to be the same thing driver wise have you compared the crossovers? Klipsch made an HIP-2 that was the early version of the kp-250 in the early '80's I believe.

Woofers are different for sure. K-42-KP for later 250's and K-42-K for these earlier ones. Stamped basket VS cast aluminum. I will try to answer your question regarding crossovers later as I make time to check these out. Hoping to pick up a pair of HIP's today for "parts" as the listing says. I have no idea what that means but I am going to find out.

I have a pair exactly like these that I'm converting to Super Heresy II's.

Claude, did you complete your mods and how did it turn out? I just bought 2 of these from Dave and am curious?

Thanks

 As a much delayed update on the speakers I bought. They have K-42's in them that are far older than I have seen before and the mid horns had soldered lug K-55-V's on them. One round and one square K-77. The cabinets are really crude but stamped with a serial number and I think original. Pics to follow soon. It was a real deal at $300.00.

I have a P250 that I'm trying to bring back to life an old shop person took the speaker apart and I can't find the entire tweeter and the horn 

I have the plastic housing for the horn but the speaker is missing and the entire tweeter is missing including the plastic housing are these parts

still available?

Better get an amp with a fan in it as it is hotter than the devil's armpit in Laredo.  I grew up there.

I think  these fit dead on as far as horn part  ,  klipsch uses the same manufacturer for some of  their products -------the only problem may be the magnet  to clear the tweeter hole but since the KP 250 uses the k79 and it's the bigger magnet , you should be ok -------
