Calling All "Vintage" Speaker Owners - Page 63

post #931 of 1227

If your KHL is sealed box, then you don't have to worry about back wall too much. It surely affects sound image (a little?), but I don't think you will notice the difference (at this level). I think you already know that ideal speaker placement is that tweeters are horizontal with your ears. So I don't think putting them on the bar will satisfy you. Maybe upsidedown placement solve problem for you.

Haha, i am still a newbie in speakers placement.

They cabinets are sealed afaik. I wonder what flipping them upside down would actually do. If it sounded "right" then I could just flip the grills and be done.

Matt, this link  is to classic speaker forum. It covers vintage speakers what is referred to east coast sound, speakers. It covers KLH, Advent, Allison, Acoustic Research and many more from the vintage era. Each brand of speakers has its own forum and there is great information in them. 

Sorry if this web site has already been mentioned. Thanks

I'll try them upside down as well as on their side. I know that KLH made some models that were meant to be positioned horizontally.

An idea what kind of speakers these are?

Need some opinions please. A pair of Sansui sp1200's popped up for a local sale. The condition is almost mint. I know nothing about these is terms of sound signature or fair price. Any advice is appreciated. 

 

Oh, the speakers are offered for $175 with local pickup.

I see those a lot. They are neutral warm, without too much distortion. I think a fair price is more like $80 for the pair, though I often see people ask $200/pair. If you want sansuii's hold out for sp5500x's. They're just.... better.

Oh crap, nobody is bidding on another pair of speakers that I low balled on ebay. 12 hours left. If I win another pair I will need to sleep on somebody's couch for sure. On the bright side, I'll be bringing some sweet speakers with me. wink.gif
