Are these k55v?

Recommended Posts

I’m hoping you guys can help me identify if these are Klipsch k55v or something else like an Atlas.

looks like a k55/pd5v based on your photos

So most likely a Klipsch branded k55 made by Atlas?

All K-55 (that look like that) are made by Atlas.

It's an Atlas PD5-VH or a PD4.  All of the K-55-Vs I've seen were a lighter grey.  There should be evidence of a Klipsch sticker having been on the back, if it is a K-55-V. 

 

If it is a PD5-VH you're good.  If it is a PD4, it will not perform well in Klipsch speakers.

It's a PD5, but isn't that thing too ugly to use.

That PD5VH looks like it was run over by a truck.

 

Might still be able to clean it up and use it though. Spare?

Yes, it’s a spare I picked up. It has had a rough life, 😂. Tests good though. Can’t see it once it’s in the cabinet anyway. No evidence of a sticker.

Compare the HF on violins, synthesisers or similar.  A PD4 LOOKS like a PD5-VH on the outside but doesn't go as high.

I think John’s right. That might be a PD4.

Well those are definitely similar in the roughness factor but, mine has screws around it where these don’t.

Nice catch. I didn’t notice that.

I have a set of Speakerlab drivers that look just like that. No logos but everything else is the same including the sad appearance.

Now I had thought about it being out of a speaker lab. But wasn’t sure what they used for drivers.
