All-- New here. What prompted joining was the recent acquisition of what appeared to be an absolutely pristine pair of KLH Model Seventeens, in their original shipping boxes. The cabinets and everything appear so untouched that I might have thought they were never used. Alas, getting nothing from the tweeters. So I will be rebuilding the crossovers, according to a couple very helpful threads here. My question: I do get an impedance reading from the tweeters (which, I take it, indicates that they are not completely blown); however, one measures 3.7 to 3.8 ohms, and the other 4.4 to 4.5 ohms. Is the difference significant, something to be concerned about? Indicate damage? Serial numbers are 032803 and 032816. There are no date indications (or any script) on the tweeters. One surprise: the tweeter leads were not soldered to the leads from the crossover, but only (well) mechanically connected with the screwcaps. Would this indicated that they are replacements? I am certain, in any case, from comparison with various photos on this forum, that they are the correct KLH period-specific tweeters. Thanks much, Nordfinn
If anyone has some KLH Model Seventeen emblems available at a reasonable price, I'm interested. I'm in the process of restoring a nice pair of 17's and all they'll be lacking is the badges. I can do with or without them, but if you have some orphans out there looking for a home, let me know. Redpackman@aol.com
