    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.

    Hi RoyC. I see that you are the guy that sells the stuff for redoing the surrounds on the KLH speakers. I am new here and wanted to ask if I could buy it from you or should I go with the Ebay auction. I have a set of KLH Fives I need to do. Thanks

    Yes I looked for burnt resistors but they all look nice so I am just going to check them. i have seen several threads that show them burnt.

    Thanks Kent. I ordered the Caps the exact same as the "oldie" you posted. I got 2) Dayton DMPC-25 25uF 250V Polypropylene Capacitor 2) Dayton DMPC-12 12uF 250V Polypropylene Capacitor 8) Dayton DMPC-4.0 4.0uF 250V Polypropylene Capacitor 2) Dayton DMPC-3.0 3.0uF 250V Polypropylene Capacitor As for the resistors I plan to check them when I replace the caps. If out of spec I will replace as needed. I am going to use Butyl tape to seal the speakers. It is what they used and it does not harden.
  12. I bought this set of Fives at an estate sale about 2 months ago. Both Tweeters did not work and after checking them (They both ohm out) I am going to recap the crossovers. I have already ordered the Caps from Parts Express and am just waiting for them to be delivered. I almost made a BIG mistake and used the permatex high tack sealant on the surrounds after finding a thread that said it was good. But doing more research I found out that later on the people that used it said NO DON"T DO IT. So I am getting the stuff from vintage-ar on ebay. I might need 2 orders of it but I will try just one first and if I need more I will get it. All I can say is these are some great sounding speakers even with the Tweeters not working and the base is Amazing! I can wait until they are up and running.
