    Going to pick up a pair of Klipschorns and wondering if they'll fit in a Volvo 240 wagon? Was planning on taking my pick up but the weather looks questionable, Girlfriend asked if they'll fit in the Volvo, I don't think so with a moving dolly. No rack on the car.

    Should be easy enough to look up dimensions, but my initial reaction is "probably not"

    Take some pics if you find a way to shoe horn them in there.

    I miss my CRV - carried home a pair of JBL 4341 4 way monitors on one trip, JBL L200s a couple of times, and a big pair of UREI Monitors on another ...
    There is no substitute for have a truck available! Good luck!

    Klipsch La Scalas and the road trip

    Klipschorns are larger than La Scalas so
    just in case you're interested - my experience.

    Personally, I think you'd better take the truck.

    Haha - I was interpreting this post as 'can I use Klipschorns as my car audio system,' to which I still say - GO FOR IT!

    I managed to get the ML reQuests in my 2006 Volvo V70 wagon... Barely. Had to run both front seats waaaaay forward. Thankfully it was only about a 30 minute drive.

    Off topic but I had to get some Cornwall II’s from my truck to the apartment in the barn. I don’t really have neighbors and no one else was around so I bear hugged them and carried them up. I’m really getting tired of moving big/heavy speakers which I find myself doing a lot.

    A 1/2 ton truck is about right
    I hauled one in my Xterra. The hatch was almost closed and the seats all the way forward. About 30 miles. Was about 3 or 4 inches too long.
    Not recommended

    A 245 Volvo holds more than most people think but I’m guessing it won’t hold 2 Khorns. Btw, bonus points in my world for having a 240 Volvo wagon and searching out Khorns :) Best of luck, hope you get them!

    I fit my ADS L1530’s in my wife’s RAV 4 when I picked them up pretty easily. That plus a big friend to help me move them and a big receiver and turntable.
