RF 3 set for sale

Recommended Posts

$ 150. They do not look like much but they sound great. 

Cabinets have no structural damage. One Woofer has crease and one dust cal is broken and 2 woofers have slight indentations. Grills look good but the pegs are all broken

Looks great.  Willing to take these apart and just ship me the speakers and crossovers?  Haha ... trying to put these in a vintage stereo console ... not sure yet if I can make 10" woofers fit :(  Console is coming Tuesday ... will let you know then - or earlier. :D 

Cheers, Emile

OK; confused :(  Looked up the specs and found 2 different versions ... one says 10" woofers, another one 8" woofers.  If they are 8" I'll take them (if you want to ship the components).  If 10" I'll have to check my box next week :D 

Thanks, Emile

Thank you SIR!

 

OK @falcon20x ... I'd love to get these from you if you are willing to "break them down." :D  And you can keep the box for another project :)  Have to go to a party now ... back later tonight.

Cheers, Emile

I’m confused about what it is you want. 

Do you want the cross over, horns and woofers shipped to you? 

As long as you pay the asking price and the shipping, I guess I could do that

Hi; yes ... woofers, horns, crossovers, connector plates, wiring and tubes (if any). :D The RF-3's supposedly are GREAT speakers ... anyone for a comment ???? So, yes, want to use the "components" in a vintage stereo console.  Yes; we Klipsch guys are "weird." :D Shipping should be less than $50 ... where are you located? I'm in St Pete, FL 33702. Console pics below ...

Hi Florida neighbor @billybob ... think I will have a problem "enclosing" these RF-3's in a similar volume as the originals :(  Any idea what they would sound like WITHOUT an enclosure just like in the pic below?  Or ... maybe I can make a sealed box around them :)

PS ... cannot "get rid" of the 2 shelves in the lower right compartment :(

have you gently powered up the tubes with a variac, or other device to not shock the system?

Haha ... getting the console this Tuesday and will "slowly" power it up to see what happens :D  But pretty sure it is dead as seller told me he had not plugged it in ... translation: dead. So was thinking of putting a Marantz amp in it and the RF-3 speakers. And yes; will slowly try some different approaches :D 

OK; will leave this thread alone and start a new one when I get the console :) 

Cheers, Emile

The RF-3 woofers can work great in smallish ported enclosures just look at the RC-7 cabinets same woofers and surprisingly good strong bass. The thing that would worry me with this project is the horn / woofers being so low to the ground, especially the horn you would want to mount them angled up quite a bit so the horn is aimed near the ears at listening position otherwise they might sound dead and kind of lifeless. 

 

Anyway looks like a fun project best of luck to you!

Seller probably waiting around a bit to see if anyone local is interested in complete speakers first I know I would its a bit of work to strip cabinets down pack / box parts and ship plus disposal of leftovers all for the same price he should be able to get local cash deal just my .02.

I did take the local add down and responded to him last night. I did not realize that this was a urgent matter for Emile and that he is expecting immediate shipping with unrealistic Time line and shipping quote. 

Still for sale
