Klipsch P-39's On Audiomart.

Recommended Posts

Well, I paid $6000 shipped for my P-38F last May and these are $9000.  So, I'd say around $3000.  🙂

 

I have 21 Palladium speakers, 20 in use in systems and one P-17B in a box since it's partner is being used as a center speaker.  Listed below are the three Palladium system that I have.  I'm on the lookout to replace those last two KSP-S6 surrounds in the family room with P-27S.  And if a miracle happens and I can find another P-27C for that system I guess I'll finally ditch the piece of furniture that can only accommodate a vertical center like a P-17B.

2 x Klipsch Palladium P-39F Towers for Front Left & Right

This pic is my basement front stage.  The VMPS subs are between the 39s and the center.  I've had them for a long time, since like '93 or '94.  Unfortunately, VMPS went out of business when the founder died in 2012.  These passive subs have a 12" active driver and a 15" down-firing, slot-loaded passive radiator.  I don't have pics with the grills off since they are a pain in the butt to remove.  The grills are made of MDF and wrap around the front and both sides.  It's the one thing I really don't like about them.  However, this old CanuckAudioMart listing has good grills-off pics (https://www.canuckaudiomart.com/details/648961194-vmps_speakers__original_subwoofers/).

The pic on my profile page shows a front on view of the same setup.

That Palladium collection is pretty impressive.  

I would be using the P-39's strictly for music, so I am curious how the office system sounds.  

I currently have walnut Belles with ALK's powered by a MC 275, and a RSW115, in a large vaulted playroom.   

Will be moving soon, so the Belles may be listed at some point, and my listening room will be smaller.  

Would the P-39's have a much different sound from the Belles, or work better with a different amp (I have a number of SS amps)?

The only time I have ever needed a part for a Klipsch speakers was back in 1984 when a college roommate blew a tweeter in one of my kg4. 🙂  I don't stress my speakers too hard.  You won't see me posting SPL meter pics for how loud I can make it.  I like my hearing.  I do have the spare P-17B I can scavenge for parts if need be.  So, I really don't know what the parts situation is at present.

I guess.  You'd think I could just be happy with what I have, right?  🤣  It's a good thing I don't have room for Jubes.

Nice collection Michael, there are some tweeters on Ebay right now. Klipsch claims no new parts are available, but they pop up occasionally.

It's been decades since I've heard Belles, so it's hard to say.  I'm sure going from horn-loaded bass bin to a ported system is going to be a big change in the bass sound.  Palladiums are also somewhat different from other Klipsch.  They sound like Klipsch yet in some ways not like Klipsch.  The best way I can describe them is like they are the children of Klipsch and B&W parents.  They have refinement/intimacy like B&Ws but with Klipsch-like dynamics.  I'm not sure I'd make a swap from Belle to P-39F without auditioning the P-39F first (or at least any Palladium tower models).  As you can tell, I love the sound of Palladiums but there are other Klipsch fans who don't.

As far as how my office system sound, I think it sounds great.  The P-37F are perfect size for that small room.  Some might call the overkill for an office but I don't.  🙂   And if I'm listening in the office it means I'm doing something in the office, so it's a casual, not serious, listing system.  Serious listening happens in my living room or basement.

Oh, now that you say that I seem to remember reading about that.  Something about the rubber surrounds coming unglued.  Hopefully my pair won't have that issue.  🤞  I guess I'll find out one way or another.  I'm not going to worry about it until it happens and enjoy them while I can.  🙂

Did someone post instructions for the repair here in the forums?  If so, I'll have to find it and bookmark it just in case.

Ah, OK.  Well, then you should have made an instructional post about it!  😁

How did you notice the issue?  Was it an audible change or something you saw?
