Hello just curious about these drivers in the RF-7's and the odd-ball k-70g. I have the original RF-7's and wonder if the newer K-701g drivers are a better driver? Also I have a pair of K-70g drivers and was wondering if how close they are to the k-701g's? I can find info on the original RF-7 driver the k-67 quite easily but nothing on the other two drivers any input would be appreciated thanks!

Digging around on the net these drivers appear to be from Fane International the CD-130 looks closest but specs dont match up at least of their current model. At least it resembles the k-70 / 701g really cant believe there is no info out there on a driver Klipsch has been using for over 10 years .

Also, the Klipsch RF-83/63 tweeter K-71-G looks very similar to the FANE CD-131. The studs are however slightly wider on the Fane.

 

K-79-G:            1" throat. 2.86" stud diagonal distance. 1.25" diaphragm

Fane CD-131: 1" throat. 3" stud diagonal distance.       1.375" diaphragm

 

Is Fane the OEM for these Klipsch drivers?

So I've been in contact with Speaker Exchange, apparently there is a K-70-g II coming out in the next week or two, not sure what they will look like:

 

Hello Jesse,

 

Original driver 128033 is unavailable but we will have a pair of 1068435 available in about a week or so. That is the K70G gen 2 driver. Those are $89.00 each.

I may get a pair of the 120861 woofers from them to go with the K 67s I got from you. I'm thinking that the drivers/horns have to be very similar to the K 50.1 used in the RB 75. I am good friends with a fantastic cabinet maker so I'll just have to come up with ports and crossovers for something RB 75 ish....

If the K70G driver is used in the Forte III does anyone know the crossover point or have a schematic for FIII?

 

If it is a tweeter driver why is it being used as a mid driver in FIII??
