1960s’ Klipschorns serial numbers 1762 & 1763 info needed

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a pair of 1960s’ klipschorns (Serial #s 1762 & 1763) and I would like to know the manufacturing details of this set of speakers.


Wood color, drivers, crossovers and the date of manufacturing would be very helpful for me.  (See attached photos)


Thanks!  Wayne Smith

@Waymarsol56      The  khorns you  own are original klipschorns 1955    ,  the speakers no longer have the correct midrange drivers for 1955  ,  but they do have the  Mids 1955 wood horns ( painted black  ) . 


The  K-55V mids cpmpression  drivers  are not original to these 1955  cabinets   ,these were added at a later date  ,  the K-55V only came out in Nov 1961 .

 good news , the crossovers  K-500 / 5000 + the cabinets + the mids horns  are   1955    

the K-55V Midrange drivers are not original to these speakers  


2 parts remain  to  be verified.....the tweeters and the woofer
