WTB Pair of K42 woofers

Recommended Posts

Need (2) K-42 woofers for Super Heresy project.

Someone must have these in their stack of spare parts.

I have a single stock k-42 and a pair that have been re-coned / converted to 4 ohm.

Well put in your 22 and compare it to someone who has a 42

Parts are not parts

And we've really missed you around these parts

I do not know all of the speaker models that used the Klipsch K-42, 12" woofer.

Over the past months I have acquired two, but they are not the same. Klipsch made a "cast" frame K-42 and a "stamped" frame model. I have one of each.

My preference is a pair of stamped frame K-42's.

 

I understand that buying a pair of NEW Delta Pro 12's would be easier.

Just keep watching eBay, they surface time to time. For the short term using the two woofers you have would work just fine, honestly don't think there's a difference between the two sound wise.

You are probably correct about performance. 

My desire is to follow the Super Heresy recipe that Claude provided.

The K-42-K is a different size than the K-42-KP in the KP-250's UNLESS you have one of the earlier 80's models. I have gone round and round with the K-42-KP's and nothing from Eminence fits without routing larger or is smaller than the stock Klipsch hole.

Pics of my 2 woofers are below.

Because Heresy I's have back mounted woofers, both appear to fit the Hersey cabinets.

I've used both of those type before, basically the same exact woofer just different baskets. I believe the steel stamped frame versions I had were removed from the KSM-12 stage monitors.

Totally disagree.  I guarantee you will hear a significant difference between the two.  Jerry, if you could install both and do some testing, and if you have the time, please report on your findings.

This thread is several years old, but ClaudeJ1 revived it last December after some new interest.

Curent content is about on age 5 or 6.

When I made this WTB post for K-42's I didn't know they would be  difficult to find.

Still desire to build a pair of Super Heresy's with K-42 woofers. Please help if you can.
