Klipsch KM?

Recommended Posts

On german ebay a pair of KM6 turned up. I never heard of them before. Google led to the spec-sheet for the whole line. Are these lower class contemporaries to the .5 KG line?

Those are the military version of, imo the KG-5.5 and akin to the Klf-10 of all things. Think you will find at least these are all kissing cousins. Do a search here and online if curious enough. Been a year or more since seeing a pair local. Typically black... @AndreG.

Yep, they´re black alright:

Price says "negotiable" and since we are in Germany here, i´m think the seller will ask some outrageous price for sure. Come with some old JVC receiver.

Unless it is a collectible JVC, which is unlikely, the value is in the speakers. Think they look alright from the front but, would be nice to have pics of the sides, rear and stickers. If they check out, could give you an estimate in dollars here or by pm.

If interested...

I do not need the pics. They are for your benefit...and the grilles.

Well, the interest is there, but they are too far away and no shipping (plus i´ve had bad experience shipping speakers with german mail...) and i´m gonna take a look at an interesting Panasonic blueray this weekend wich will be approx.300€ if i buy. Almost got a pair of good KG4s two weeks ago.

 

Thanks guys @billybob & @001

the KG 5,5/KM6 was way better  in the bass than a KG-4 - with twin 10 inch woofers  - 69 Lbs ------very good speakers - they were made for the Military , they are tougher -

 

I would avoid  the kg-4  , they  had issues with the woofers vibrating as they aged --- the repair cost is higher than the value of the speakers since you need to replace the woofers  ( 4 woofers ) -plus the parts dont exist -

BTW, if you find another pair like the LL ast 4s in good condition, for the right price, do not hesitate.

Killer bass for their size.

The exponential horn follows you around corners so it seemed.
