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.

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.

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.
