****SOLD****1963 KLIPSCHHORNS Houston/Austin

The tweeters could be mounted on either side of the squawker in vertical orientation as they were on my Speakerlabs.  E-V intended vertical orientation of T-35s, but doing so would have increased Klipsch’s production costs without, “. . . a dime’s worth of difference.”

 

The attached photo does not show my old Speakerlab SKhorns (I had four). My geriatric memory tells me two had the T-35s on the right and two had the T-35s on the left, but my memory could be faulty.  Mirror imaging would have enabled a pair to be placed in a space with the tweeters both to the inside or both to the outside.

 

Mirror imaged side vertical mounting would avoid cluttering the squawker, but it too is probably not a dime’s worth of difference.

Yup...upgrade from OEM...LOL

 

I think mine routes underneath the K--5--J... no holes

 

Also, the earlier K-5-Js were mounted with studs/nuts through two small protrusions in the lower fiberglass flare...looks like they moved to the outside brackets to clean things up a bit.

 In a normal market in good shape these could be worth north of $1500 up to $1900.  I know they are worth less, just make an offer if you're serious and see what we can work out. 

 

 

Hans ----                 @dsmdylan  would like to send you an offer for these speakers - but since you only have 4 posts , he cannot send you a PM , can you please reply to this post so that it adds 1 post  - since you need 5 posts to be able to PM forum members  or receive PM's -

Another option is for you to not say anything negative about something that someone is selling in the Garage Sale section.
