What would be a good price to pay for a pair of Klipsch Tangent 5000?

Finish, enclosure, and driver shape would be helpful.

The Tangent 100 & 1000 series only came in black ash.
Some love em and others not so much.
They have decent components and sounds close to fortes.
They are worth at least the value of their components.

They are in excellent shape. Owner said they didn’t have too many hours on them. He bought them in Japan when he was in Desert Storm.

If you get a pair of Tangent 5000’s for 300 bucks or less, you have sir, have scored! 

 

One of the Klipsch sleepers, to be sure. 

 

I wound up using PL construction adhesive to seal up (caulk) all the joints and added a little bracing while I was inside mine, as per the advice from others on this forum. I could actually see the light from a flashlight inside the cabinet through some of the joints prior to this...

 

They may not be as pretty as a Forte, but they rock like them!

 

Side by side with my Forte II’s I was hard pressed to pick a winner, maybe the nod went to the Forte 2’s for “slightly” lower bass, but they are a beautifully balanced speaker.

 

I still own my Tangent 5000’s, the Fortes are gone...

Thanks for the reply. I own a pair of Forte I’s just wondering if they would be worth purchasing, for the right price.

I have heard it said before (probably on here), and I can attest to it as well, the only regrets come from NOT doing something.

 

Physical appearance aside, I think I prefer the Tangent 5000. Front firing passive and the tweeter is higher so the sound fills the room when milling about.

 

Worse case scenario, you like them so much you sell the Fortes and put the extra dough towards a pair of LaScalas!

 

The Klipsch ladder is for climbing, lol!

$300 and fully functional, that would be pretty good.  Shortcomings in the enclosure and other odds and ends can be handled at that price and you'll have a nice speaker system.

Thanks so much to everyone who replied. I may see if I can borrow them to do a comparison and go from there.
