Discussion in 'The Klipsch Korner' started by cubdog, Mar 3, 2013.
One pair of the 5.5's have been sold and replaced by a brand new pair of RF-7 II's .
Only one pair so far, 1978 La Scalas. I'd buy another pair in a second if I could afford another pair.
As far as I am concerned there is only one speaker manufacturer ( this gonna piss some people's faces off ) KLIPSCH and only KLIPSCH.
From the roof tops KLIPSCH!!!!! What I have at the moment is one pair KG4 and one pair KG5.5.
One thing that would be handy is, if you don't want them and want to sell them, give us a price and a rough geographical so that us lovers can take the poor things off of your hands.
B-10s w/R-10 sub
KG-5s in the shop
RF-3s sitting on top of KLF-20s for front channel
F-1s for the rears
2 R-12 subs
All driver by Carver power. I know there are other brands, I'm just not sure why.
Other brands meaning the klipsch or the carver?
You kind of got me there. I won't give up the Klipsch, but I'd rather not do without the Carver. I've used both since the 80s. Klipsch has always had the sound I want to hear, while Carver has the power to get them there. I have tried others. Different makers of speakers and amps. Kind of the grass is always greener thing I guess. But I've always come back to Klipsch and for the sake of not starting an argument since this is the Klipsch Korner Im going to stand by the Klipsch.
Well just between you me and this post that's the direction that I'm going as well. One more piece, a rack, and all of the cables. Then we fly.
The Klipsch KLF-20s carry their own and need no help. I've used them since they were new with no complaints. The sound quality, the response, the complete sound field they generate is second to none. I had a chance to add the RF-3s a few years ago, and I'm very glad I did. The two do nothing but compliment each other. I think each pair sound excellent on there own. There is nothing missing from either pair. But when the two work together it's just that much more, just a whole new sound scape. The sound is fuller, richer, the top end is just that much stronger. Not to mention should I ever decide to I could really piss off the neighbors, and I live out in the country. I've tried Scotts, Infinity, EV, and such. And they all have their strong points. But when I got to Klipsch I stopped looking. Been happy ever since.
I've been shopping for a pair of KLF 30s for a while. They pop up every now and then. To be honest I would take any Klipsch at the right price just to make sure that they are in a safe home.
Mine are living proof that if you feed them good and show them a little love they will pay you back in kind. Bought mine in the mid 90s, hooked them up to a TFM-35 and have never had the first problem or complaint. They get used pretty much every day. Some days harder than others. And they keep on rocking. The first set of Klipsch I heard were small, old, and in a friend's wood shop covered with sawdust. I knew then I had to look into them, and been building ever since.
I grew up with a pair of 1980 Cornwalls and JBL L100s. I learned what breaks them (folks weren't too happy with that) but boy howdy was that a fun loud weekend. I could make it sound like a train was coming through the neighborhood. They since been rebuilt. Ah the 90s
2 sets of chorus 2s running off a Yamaha m-80 amp and a pioneer 1980 front end. Loud and proud
70th Anniversary Klipschorns and a pair of Heresy IIs.
order in which acquired
Quartet Oiled Oak (2) Crites tweeters/crossovers
RSW10 Black (1)
KV3 Oiled Oak (2)
KG 5.2 Black (2) Sold
Forte II Black (2) Crites tweeters/crossovers, Klipsch titanium midrange driver/Crites bandpass board
Academy Black (1) Crites tweeters/crossovers
KG 5.5 Oiled Oak (2) Crites tweeters
KG 2.5 Oiled Oak (2) Crites tweeters
I've owned Forte II, KG 4.2, KG 5.2 and KG 4.5 in the past. Seriously considering doing a full bob crites upgrade on the Cornwall but that alone will run ~$1100. I feel like I could sell two or all three sets and get something better overall. Cornscala? But not sure yet! Cornwalls are powered by a Marantz 2325. The other two pairs are currently unused.
My my my.... Since it only gets better as you go bigger, I think you should stay away from their larger offerings..... I fear you will go into shock if you were to hear them!
(I do however like your sentiment)
