Klipsch KG-2

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

This is a strange question but does anyone know why some of the KG-2 speakers come with round tweeters, and some are square?  I cannot seem to find any info on this?  

 

I am asking because I have a mint pair Im looking at and the tweeter horn is square?  Almost all pics I see are round?  Although there seems to be pics of both?

 

Weird that they would have used 2 different ones?  

 

Thanks,  Jon

Can you post a picture? I know the very early versions of the kg2 didn't have a passive radiator.

ACTUALLY, the KG-2 was originally called the "Kay Gee Squared"....and was the FIRST of the "KG" series to see production....a few months before I left in 1983!

The original K-72 was a Heppner-built unit with a square horn (K-72-H).  Shortly K&A expanded their in-house driver building to include tweeters and mids, particularly those formerly made at Heppner.  The K-72-K was K&A's first tweeter to build, and it debuted with the round plastic horn.

I knew I could count on you guys!  Great info!!  I had heard great feedback on the passive radiator model, but can't seem to find much on the sealed cabinet design?  I would imagine it was a bit bass light?  Probably 60 65 hz.?   Thanks guys,   Jon
