RP-450c build issue

Recommended Posts

I bought an RP-450c sometime around Christmas timeframe. I recently had been running it without the grill. I’ve noticed that the tweeter horn (the rubber part) is cocked a degree or two. The Klipsch logo above it is clocked maybe another half degree further. I pulled the rubber horn piece and the tweeter itself is cocked in the hole. This may be a bit nit picky, but it’s noticeable from the couch and these aren’t exactly the cheapest of speakers. I wouldn’t necessarily expect this to be covered under warranty, but has anyone had similar build issues and had them addressed by Klipsch (or not)?

 

Thanks!

That’d drive me crazy too.  I’m a bit OCD about that kind of thing.  

 

How is the tweeter attached to the box on that model?

Yeah I’m kind of ocd with things like this too. 

 

Theres a hole routed in the face, the tweeter bolts into the hole, then the rubber “horn” is held in with aligning tabs and 2 sided tape. I’d have to unbolt the tweeter, but then I’d tear up the screw holes realigning it. 

 

I’ll work on getting a picture.
