Hi all,

This is my first post, and I want to begin by thanking you all for the informative, friendly atmosphere on this forum.

I have a pair of KLH model 23's that need new tweeters. From what I've learned from reading and searching, the tweeters are common in many models of KLH speakers. I have advertised in the "wanted to buy" section, but I also would like to hear from your experience...are there any good replacement tweeters that are reasonably priced, that I could substitute in this cool old speaker? I see where complete speakers can be had for $30-40 bucks or so; so I don't want to break the bank but I would like to resurrect these. Do you have some suggestions as to what I should do with them?

Welcome!

If those are the same tweeters used in the 17, 20 etc etc, they often come up for sale. I know member ryansdad had some for sale recently--maybe he still does. Also check this thread: http://www.classicspeakerpages.net/IP.Boar...?showtopic=4238

PeteB has been studying tweeters and he found a couple of appropriate modern replacements for the tweetrs in the KLH 20. They are available from Madisound for $11 each.

Good luck

PS

Two more thoughts:

KLH caps were notoroiusly crappy, so while you are at it, replace them with new film caps.

ALSO--another newbie, Chet, has a question about what's inside the box. So once yours are open, maybe reply to his post:
