revrseat70 Posted March 28 Share Posted March 28 Hello all, if this doesn’t belong here, feel free to boot it. I am fairly new to the forum and Klipsch loudspeakers, but after finding some KG4’s at a consignment store with my daughter and a FB marketplace buy of Fortes turning into a haul that included a set of KLFs in addition, and finally acquiring some KP-301’s. My wife and I love the Klipsch sound and are having fun going bigger and bigger. We recently heard the Cornwall IVs and thought this was the next move. After reevaluating our long term goals and my imagination for building and tinkering, we decided to look into my building speakers. Que a member of the forum posting the components to a KPT-335, which I purchased. (Btw it was all received in the best packaging job I’ve ever seen in all my years with automotive and now electronics used markets) I have tracked down a supplier with lots of 3/4” Baltic birch, my wife has been generous with budget, and a buddy of mine is a skilled woodworker with access to a full shop, including CNC. I would love to harness the collective knowledge from this community to help make these truly great. My first thought is to make separate bass cabinet and mid/high “cabinet”. Then each could be perfected in design, time alignment, etc. I also want to experiment with being able to flip the top bin upside down to put the tweeter horn (k703) at ear height and the mid (k510) above it. But if there is a better way or that’s just wrong I’m open to it. the constraints are: 1. visual - they can be big if they look “good”, ie. clean/simple. For reference: My wife really likes our KLF 30’s and the visual look of tower speakers. 2. protected - we have two young kids. So ideally there wouldn’t be exposed crossovers/diaphragms etc. I would be making screens to magnetically attach. 3. not corner dependent- I want flexibility of placement, and would therefore prefer open baffle or front ports 4. Bass - I would like for the single k48 to reach as low as it can without loosing the smooth transition from the midrange. Ideally in the neighborhood of 40 hz I’m really open to imaginative ideas, granted I wouldn’t need to do major crossover surgery from the original. The room these would be placed is a roughly 22x28’ bonus room with 8’ ceilings and two svs subs where I would use a kp-301 as a center channel. We mostly watch shows and movies in this space, but also some 2 or multi-channel music listening. It’s a treated space but kids do play rough in there. Sorry for the novel, thank you for the consideration. Alex 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
