FS Belle Klipsch modified

Recommended Posts

Up for sale are my lovely Belle Klipschs.  I have upgraded (altered) (modified) them with the Volti wooden mid horn, Crites CT120 tweeter, Crites A-55-G mid driver, and Crites xover.  Sadly my new home (and wife) can't accommodate these beauties so it's time to sell.  The Belles sound great stock but it is THE best speaker I've heard (to my aging ears) with the updates (yes including Klipschorn, I us a sub so sue me) Cabs are an 8/10 with very small nicks and one small dent (in pics).  They look and sound phenomenal.  I live in Northen CA and am willing to travel a moderate distance to meet a buyer.  No shipping.  I'm asking $3,000 obo.  I know most stock Belles go from anywhere from 2k-3k and I guess you will have to decide if the upgrades are worth it or if you are looking for bone cold stock then these probably aren't your babies.

Sweet Belles and great post.  Certainly deserving of the upper end of your asking range.  GLWS

Looks like the tweeter is just wedged in place and not mounted securely.

Your right about the tweeter, and it’s looks like the wrong one as well.

Tweet is securely in position. It may be the camera angle.  The tweeters are securely mounted to the Volti provided adapter and then mounted to the horn proper.   It is a 2" adapter (I have the mounting kit for a 2" driver.  Tags incoming (they are sequential)

"Wrong one" how? It's a Crites CT120 purchased directly from the man....

TY... that's critical for a potential buyer because it opens all kinds of possibilities for 2" drivers.

GLWS because $3000 obo is a really good deal!

Correct that's why I mentioned the Volti horn in listing.  My bad on not clarifying.  Thanks for the help! :)

What I meant to say and should have said is this
The horn lens looks like it’s hooked in between the cloth and motor board and what made me slip with saying that I looks to be the wrong tweeter is that the horn is so much smaller then the cutout of the motor board
After I posted that I thought that maybe it should of had the z bracket and that’s why it looks the way it does

Thanks for posting the tags. Anyone able to decipher their year? Best I can guess is that they were #'s 61 and 62 made in 1971. They look like the oldest Belles I've ever seen. They look great and I'm sure your upgrades make them sound great as well.
