RF-25: Are the binding posts replacable?


Recommended Posts

I just picked up some excellent condition RF25s, with the exception that someone broke one of the binding posts on each speaker.  Both the bottom left, actually. 

 

It appears that the post goes through the black plastic mounting plate and could possibly be replaced on its own.

 

I tried removing the next nut on the inside, but the little nut on the inside doesn't seem to want to loosen all the way.

 

Does anyone know for sure?

Okay, yes they're replaceable since I was able to remove it, but it's not clear where to get OEM replacements.  I'm currently look at whole crossovers on ebay. 

 

OEM and replace the whole crossover - jeez, you are making this very complicated.  The stock parts are very cheap and you will pay top dollar to replace them with OEM.  Just buy an aftermarket post, if it is too thick you can drill out the hole to make it bigger. 

 

I am putting these in a pair of JBL L100s I am restoring.  They are on my table right now.  Nice posts and priced well but the post is not very long.

You might be able to take these apart and just use the poses and ends.

Have Yo tried to contact Klipsch customer service? Maybe they can help, if You find that you can't replace the bolt, that is...

klipsch does not sell binding posts -  but they will  sell the crossovers if you have a Serial number of  a set of matching speakers

Those are similar but not the same.  If you compare it to the klipsch one the hex part is as long as the smooth round part.

 

Fortunately, I contacted an ebay seller who sells klipsch crossovers with the back plate attached, and he has some broken/bad crossovers that he might be able to sell me for cheaper.  😃

I am redoing a set of x-overs and thought of this thread.  Still having trouble figuring out why the stock parts are so special and worth chasing stock parts.  These are really cheap and very common parts.  They work so I am not replacing them, but if they were broken anything similar would work.

Just found this in one of my old trays. 
 

I have the matching black one too.

That looks like the one, but I think that the OP was concerned that the RB25 post had two flat sides on the post.  I'd just drill it out if the plastic mounting hole had two flat sides and tighten the replacement on. 

 

The Partexpress ones also looked about the same.
