    OLA's I Just Bought

    I hope no one is confused about mine because I installed them just like you said Doug. They are inverted. If it looks different to anyone it must be an optical illusion of my picture. Oh and I have been listening to these stacked on my KLH Fives and I LOVE them like that. It just sounds great! I think I might still keep my eye out for another pair of Fives though 😀

    That is exactly how I did mine. If it looks different to you it is just the pic.

    I got the new caps in and WOW it made a huge difference! Now they sound like something Henry Kloss made. Still not quite as good as the KLH Fives but real close. All I can say is I LOVE yard sales! So far I have got the KLH Fives for $10.00 and now these for $5.00. After rebuilding both pairs I have about $130.00 in 2 pair of great speakers!

    I am going to keep these as close to original as possible. I like to preserve the history as well as function. If I don't like how they sound I can always pass them on to someone who does.

    What a story. I love my KLH fives and totally understand how you feel about Bose lol. I had a newer set of Focals and after a week of listening and everyone telling me how much better they where than my KLH I sold them on ebay. They couldn't even compare to the KLH in my personal opinion.

    Well they are re-foamed. Now I just need the capacitors to get here. I hooked them up as is but they sound muddy compared to my KLH Fives. I am hoping the new Dayton caps change that. But for now I can start making them look better. I think they will clean up nicely.

    I think it is cool that the "Cheese Cloth" inside has the serial numbers on them as well.

    They are the first version with 2 16uf capacitors. Thanks to guys like Pete for the great Schematic.

    Parts are ordered and on the way. The cabinets on these have stains but I think they will clean up real nice.

    Yes they have a 1973 date on the tweeter. I got them at a yard sale in a little dumpy trailer park. And it was the second day that they had the sale so everything was half price because they couldn't sell it the first day. Think about it? These sat there for a whole day at $10.00 for the pair and no one bought them. She was real happy I bought them because she didn't want to carry them yo the trash! She said she had a nice Bose system anyway 🤣🤣🤣

    I picked these up with a Sansui 1000X and all of it was REAL cheap. They are going to need some work but if they sound even close to my KLH Fives it will be worth it.
  12. Yes they are GREAT speakers. After rebuilding mine I will never get rid of them.
  13. I was looking at these today and they just didn't look 29 inches tall. Every time I looked at them they just seamed shorter. So i remeasured again and guess what they are only 20" tall lol
  14. I pulled a woofer in one. Looks nice and has a cloth surround. Definitely not a acoustic suspension speaker. It has a very short in and out movement. The cone (Not including the surround) measured 7 1/2" and it measures 10 3/8" total
