Cleaning Klipsch Model K-5-J mid range horns?


Recommended Posts



I would say a first step is to take off the driver because you certainly don't want any dust getting into it.


My first suggestion would be a Swiffer duster.  They have some sort of an electrostatic charge.  A full sized one should get pretty far in there from the front.  


You have probably seen drawings showing the vanes near the throat (small end).  Maybe you can pull a rag or tack cloth (Home Depot) through them.


Maybe consider hooking up a vacuum cleaner hose to the hole for the driver.  Do you have a vacuum cleaner which allows blowing air?  Or a can of Liquid Air.


I would not suggest cleaning fluid of any sort.  Please no Murphy's Oil Soap either (corrosive).

Thanks for the tips. Feel like dust isnt the only problem tho. Like based on the pics I posted there are a lot of random stains that I'd like to get rid of, but not sure how to since I don't want to mess things up with the wrong chemicals.

A swiffer and a soft brush on your vacuum should be enough.  A barely damp cloth would not hurt, either.  Your DO have the metal throat adaptor, but I cannot decide whether I would remove it.  Alignment at that point should be pretty precise.
