Klipschorns in the house

Nice thread!  I have always liked the AK-4's in my K's, for their smoothness, linearity, and coherency; haven't been that impressed with the very few alternatives I've heard.  Sure could be wrong, though.

 

I like the idea of the PS Audio power plant.  Have you listened for what difference if any it makes in how your turntable sounds?  I'd be interested in whether you hear a difference.

 

I agree!  I love the AK-4s in my Khorns

I use them in LSii's...

since taming the frontend, the backend has changed and I no longer need to find answers there... though the Aftermarket solutions do sound very very good.

Do you use the AL-4, which I think is the LaS version?  I'm glad others share my view ---

Larry,

have you ever tried the old A-Type (rebuilt that is)? I just spent an evening listening to a wide variety of music and I am thrilled how good the old modded Khorn can sound.

I use the stock XO... Ak-4. I have AA's and love the sound, but it's not necessarily better... it's necessarily different.

Back when the AK-4 came out, I believe they had a variant for each Heritage , ie., AK-4 for K-horns, AL-4 for La Scala's, AB-4 for Belles.  Maybe there's no real difference, but Klipsch made a point of it at the time.

Very nice, Shakey

 

The great thing about the Khorns ( or maybe not 😂) ) is that it doesn't have to end there.

 

Volti Audio has some great upgrades that you can can do all at once or a bit at a time.

Choice of xover depending on budget

 

Greg Roberts is a good guy to deal with

Sweeeeeeeeet!  You will find endless joy in listening to them.

 

Like others have said, give your ears some time with them before messing around.

Just in terms of cosmetics. I had both of my K-horn amp power outlets moved to the walls near the corners, each behind one of the K-horn side grills on each side.  That allows the power cords to less obtrusively lie flat on the floor while appearing to come from behind the speaker.
