The ad is 8 months old. Typical AVS interest in the Klipsch Heritage line.   No response til yesterday. 

I didn't even pay attention to that part. Got excited when I saw that. It seems typical AVS interest in not much of anything for sale....

It can easily. Bargain indeed.  Would have picked those up for myself if the drive wasn't 6 hours each way from me.

Didn't say that.  I prefer my JBLs with bigger horns to those EVs (damn good speakers though).  The price on those LA, scalas was just right. I would have bought them just to hoard a pair and listen from time to time at that price.

Beautiful set up  ,just saw the picture on your profle -

Thank you. I tried LA scalas ONCE in the past (fully modded by Justin) and they weren't for me in my old small room at the time with what gear I had.   Now, the room is no longer a problem and I would like to try a pair again.  Subs to pair them with won't be a problem either... Just picked up some KP250s yesterday that I regretted selling whole visiting a friend as well. Doesn't always HAVE to be the biggest horn all the time to sound good.   Variety is key.

I just saw a post on that as well which I thought was ironic.

Yes indeed the mod is easily reversed leaving no external cosmetic traces.  TTBOMK, no one has reversed the mod, which is not to say it’s everyone’s cup of tea, or that it has never been reversed.  Of those I know of who have actually experienced the mod, no one has gone back to unmodified.

 

IMO, too much emphasis is placed on preserving the originality of decades old Klipsch speakers. Modifying a Klipsch speaker is not like putting a Chevy V8 into a rare Duesenberg (which would be sacrilege, not to be confused with heresy).  Restoring a tired old Klipsch speaker to perform better in your space (such as a large band practice room) makes sense, if not cents, and helps to keep the venerable Klipsch brand relevant.  

 

Since I placed the modified and refurbished La Scalas and refurbished KP250s in the band practice rooms at Birmingham Seaholm high school and Birmingham Derby middle school, respectively, hundreds, if not thousands, of musically inclined students have been exposed to the dynamic low distortion sound of Klipsch horn-loaded speakers.

 

To those who say these speakers are no longer Klipsch and should not proudly display Klipsch badges, I say humbug.  Who knows how many students, or their parents, saw the name Klipsch on the great sounding speakers as their first introduction to the brand?  A shoutout to Mike @MookieStl for supplying at no charge a copper plate Klipsch badge for one of the La Scalas.  If my geriatric memory fails me regarding Mike as the source of the badge, I invite correction, but still thank whichever forum member donated the badge.

Very nice. Just picked me up another pair of old kp250s. Missed them and wished I hadn't sold them. Fantastic little speakers. I suppose they will get the Dave A treatment at some point.

file this in the what the heck does he know........those La Scalas look like the vintage that had the woofer access on the bottom. So if someone modified them to bring the ports out the back of the top reversing the mod may not be simple.
