KG 3.5 parts ?

Recommended Posts

New family member here. Just bought my second set of Klipsch speakers. The first ones I bought a pair of Chorus II for a buddy. 

I just bought a pair of KG 3.5 for myself as a starter set. The board in the attached picture is broken. Where do I go to buy a new one? Would it be cost prohibitive to buy a new part? so far, I have less than $100 in this pair.

Welcome to the forum! I asume "broken" as not working anymore. Have You checked eBay? Often parts turn up there. If You are handy with electronic repairs, just try to bridge broken conductor traces on your board.

You can also look at the sales section of this forum, maybe a member is selling the part You need.

I forgot the Crites family, they sell new XOs. Although Bob Crites, the founder, passed recently, his son Michael carries on the torch. After Klipsch, they are the ones to turn to if you need spares or repairs and tips. Mail them:

Well, i gues the best option would be Crites. Ask what price a single XO would be. A pair is close to 200$, so maybe about 100$.

is it just cracked or do the cracks go into a trace or component?  if its just cracked like i see in the pic around a screw or edge but still works it doesnt need to be replaced, just use some epoxy like JB weld on the cracks to keep from vibrating & call it good... unless you want to replace the caps or whole crossover from crites that will cost as much or more than you have into the speakers.

Thank you for all the replies. I bought a used crossover (looks new) on ebay for $30. Speakers sound great to my unrefined ear. I now have about $125 in them. I may sell them and upgrade to bigger and better Klipsch now that my metal friend Rodney has got me down this rabbit hole. I am attaching pics of the old crossover for the reply from EpicKlipschFan. I have no idea how a crossover could get broke like that.

Thanks again folks

yeah thats quite a bit worse than the 1st pics showed, looks like its cracked in half right down the middle going in between components... a replacement for $30 worked out perfect, keep the broken one for parts.

I would recommend buying new Crites crossovers. Although it's pricey, I would recommend buying the set since the crossover parts would be different from the stock.

Great You found a spare on ebay! Maybe update to a bigger KG? I think they are great speakers.

KG 3.0 were my first set.  I loved those speakers!  I had to change a crossover in one of those and found one on eBay as well.
I wouldn't add Crites if they are sounding good.  Too much $$ for that level of speaker IMO.  
I've since graduated to Heresy I's (on my 3rd pair) and Cornwall II's.

Enjoy your trip down the rabbit hole!
