    If you have a capacitor tester check it for value. I burnt one the same way and turned it into a resistor lol.
  2. So excited to be getting these I had to post them. I won them on Ebay and they are in the mail and on there way. Should look great on my Model Fives, Woo Hoo!

    KLH Model Fives on ebay LOL

    I did not at first talk about this but he also says ( (One cabinet does have a small chip of veneer missing on the rear corner and right hand side that measures about 1" in length and 3/8" in width) All other sides are Excellent ! and have a deep rich finish that glows.) Now if you call water marks a deep rich finish that Glows I guess that is true also LOL.

    KLH Model Fives on ebay LOL

    Look at these KLH model fives on ebay. He claims that they are 100% original LOL. The grill cloth is not even close to being original and they are also missing both KLH tags. He even claims that the shop owner worked for KLH that is how he knows they are "All Original" LOL. If that was the case you would think they would know the difference. I emailed him about these facts and got no response at all. Do not get me wrong they look like they are a nice pair of speakers but they are in no way all original. And when asking top dollar you would think that they would know better LOL. https://www.ebay.com/…/KLH-Model-5-All-Origin…/202327719446…

    KLH Model Fives I got a few months ago.

    Yes I will. And I agree they are under rated. I am real happy I found them at an estate sale for $10.00. I did not really know what I had until now!

    Just an update. After all the work repairing the crossovers and re-doping the surrounds I can say that these are quite possibly the best sounding speaker I have ever had. The base is AWESOME! the mid's and high's are just great as well. I have a total of about $82.00 in these and must say they are worth 10 times that to me. The woofer sealant from Vintage AR was great and really made the final difference. Now I just need to work on the looks.

    Yes I saved those. I see if you don't get those back dead center they will short out. I am also going to replace the big piece of foam on the pots that gets squished to seal them.

    Well my capacitors should be here by Wednesday so I thought I would remove the crossovers to get ready to work on them. I have looked at a lot of posts that show people prying the plate off the inside back of the speaker. I was wondering why do this? I removed the speaker wire binding posts, took off the POT knobs, soaped up the seals around the pots and pushed them through without prying off the name plate from the inside. It worked just fine and no damage to the particleboard at all. Now I just need my caps to get here.

    I was wondering if I replaced the fiberglass insulation with cotton would that be bad? I really hate fiberglass and I have plenty of cotton I could use.
