WTB ... K-510 horns w/drivers

Recommended Posts

Would like to get some K-510 horns with the B&C drivers ... :D 

 

Have a set of KPT-904's and LOVE them ... primarily due to the K-510 horns.  Looking at building a smaller set (similar to the KPT's but closed; not ported) to save some space.  Found another set of KPT-904's (see my listing under "Garage Sale/Alerts), but too cheap to buy these as I believe (???) that I cannot use the woofers in a closed box.

 

Don't need any brackets ... gave "mine" away to a member 6 months ago :) Also, (sorry) have no clue what they would be worth to me :( as I am just "experimenting."

 

Many thanks, Emile

Having never bought any new ones...I don't know.

 

My understanding though is they're in the neighborhood of $750 each.  This includes driver.

 

The price might be way off base but the main point is, they're not $50 units

Oops ... Thanks!  Guess $1300 for a set of KPT-904's might be worth it ... just for the horns :D  OK; I'm cheap ... will offer the KPT guy $500 for the horns and see what happens :D 

 

Cheers, Emile

@Coytee ... "personal" question ... think I'm crazy trying to reduce the size of the KPT-904 bins (KT-450???) by putting them in a sealed cabinet?

Many thanks, Emile

I am utterly clueless as to that answer....  literally as in I have no clue.

 

That said, I do think all of us on this forum are just a little crazy....

Haha ... NO ... of course.  Had no clue these things were impossible to find.  Tried @MetropolisLakeOutfitters, but no response.  OK; offering the FleaBay guy $750 :D

If anyone has any thoughts :D  Maybe I'll try a Selenium D3300Ti-DPD 2" Titanium Horn Driver (on sale $149 at Parts-Express) with a cheap horn from P-E also :D  Let me know if I'm an idiot :D

No breaks for me, I still had to ship out 13 packages from a ranger station in a campground using my phone's internet connection, during a storm.  No rest for the weary.

Dont waste your time and money.  Not saying those aren't decent,  just not the same as a 510.  I tried a lot of different horns.  The k510 is one out of the two smaller horns i would use in a two way setup, the other is no longer available.  I have a set of those cheaper horns mentioned in the past that i will be using in a speaker build, but only as i am stuck with them and have some free Peavey Black Windows that need a home.

Thanks!  Would have been OK if you had told me ... Yes, you are an idiot :D

OK; looks like I may have a pair in a little over a week.  Want to try them just "by themselves."  So to avoid blowing up the diaphragms I need a high pass crossover. Any suggestions on xover frequency and db slope?  All I could find was a cheap 800Hz/12dB one at Parts-Express ...

Many thanks, Emile

 

add-on ...

Or ... could use my minidsp and buy another cheap amp ... recommended xover and slope?
