Pushing the KLH 6

Recommended Posts

I would like to get some thoughts on pushing the KLH 6 into the 70 watt range with an 80w rebuilt Sansui 8080.

I will be running the tweeter attenuators at the extended setting.

not sure which version these are but they have not been reworked except to have the woofer surround doped with the proper solubilized butyl material.

Also, please tell me where I can find which version they are based on the serial numbers.

As usual, thank you all very much!

Using an 80wpc amp is fine. You will never push 80w thru the speakers.

Worst thing is using an underpowered amp. Then you risk clipping.

Yeah, I've wrecked many tweeters with a 20-watt Marantz.

Would you say then that it is safe to run this receiver up to let's say 50 to 70 watt output?

Aside from a low-powered receiver, what do you think the second greatest risk scenario would be?

Also, to shift gears a bit, what about running one pair of a speakers at the same time as running one pair of b from that 80w receiver that's been rebuilt...Polk rt16 plus ads L1290?
