Restored Model 17 Speakers

Recommended Posts

I just finished restoring my second set of KLH Model 17 speakers.

I refinished the cabinets, replaced the capacitors and speaker wiring, sealed the woofers with Roy’s Goo,  and replaced the binding posts using rubber grommets to isolate the posts from the metal back of the cabinet (Hat tip to JKent).

I did not replace the fabric on the grills. They were in pretty good shape and keeping them seemed to augment the vintage look.

Some before and after photos:
