Klipsch KG ² Speaker info please.

Recommended Posts

Hi, new here and have what I am sure are nube questions. I have a set of KG ² speakers that are pretty much like new however the veneer is dried out pretty bad and I would like to know what I should use according to the experts here to oil them back up. I am assuming they need oil anyhow. The number's on the back are "KG 2 WO". I would assume that means Walnut Oiled however I know that assuming makes an _____ out of me so I had better ask !  Thanks for having me here and allowing my questions. Good day !

Welcome to the forum! WO would be walnut oiled, yes. People could help You even better if you would post some photos. Usually some rejuvenating oil will help. 

 

You bet me to it, BillyBob ^^

Watco Dark or Light Walnut oil, or even Watco Natural oil.  Follow the directions on the can, and apply 2-3 coats.

Watco rejuvenating oil is recommended by many on here.

watco, howards restore-a-finsih or just plain oil like lemon oil will get them looking like new.  the howards & i think watco are available with some tint to them if you want to darken them a bit or cover some scuffs & scratches.

Thanks a million. I used some Howard's R.A.F. mahogany that I already had on hand to see what would happen. I think they came out nice !

I like to use Howard's feed and seed wax after I use rejuvenating oil.

Not sure yet what I am going to do with them. I have a jam session planned today/tomorrow night were a few of us get together and have a listening party. We all bring what we want to listen to and hook it up and sit and listen to all different sorts of equipment . I am probably going to have a good listen then . As far as that wax goes I have some, (the feed and seed wax) and I am going to hit them with that too. Thanks for all the suggestions. Folks seem friendly and helpful here. I like that.
