K-510 pic needed of "broken" horn

Recommended Posts

Fighting with Klipsch Support (better known as Klipsch Gestapo) ... trying to get a replacement K-510 horn.  

 

Ordered some and had no problem ... then I get an email with "need serial number." OK; complied with number of KPT-904's. Then I get an email with "why." OK; complied with pics stating I have "one" old model horn and "one" new horn (w/mumps).  Another email with cannot sell this to you without a good reason. Jeez; thought mismatched horns were a good reason :(  Email also stated "if unit is broken, send us pics."  OK; so this is my last attempt. If it does not work I'll put all my Klipsch speakers in a bonfire :( 

 

So; anyone have any pics of an old K-510 horn which is defective? Guess any hairline crack or broken corner will do.

 

Many, many thanks :D 

 

Cheers, Emile

And the annoying part is that I was PROMISED another one ... then they change their story and stab you in the back. Real nice customer support :(

@Emile, I think I have a better offer. I will pay shipping and then send you a picture of a bonfire.

I don't think you are doing yourself any favors by calling them the "Gestapo".  I find that pretty inappropriate.

It’s not gonna happen. They are on here anyway and know about the last k510 deal slipping through the cracks. It’ll be the last time a pair of k510s makes it out of the warehouse I have a feeling. You’ll eventually just get the call that they do not support the diy community with parts.

How has someone not been able to scan and reproduce this horn on a 3D printer yet? Is the technology not that accessible yet?

If I couldn't buy one from Klipsch I wouldn't clone one.

Legality aside...it seems there is a quite a demand for them. Theres a spot there for someone to make money. Klipsch or a third party.

 

Assuming of course that the horn is patented. Which I'm sure it is.

One more time. Klipsch does not sell parts for projects. If you have a damaged horn, blow a driver then we will sell you the replacement part or warranty the part to get your speaker up and running. But to get parts just to get parts, no. And asking others to send pics of a broken horn....come on bro. If you want a horn then buy a component as each is serialized. Cheers.
