Klipsch fixed the problem later that first year they were made. My friend has 4 KLF20/C7 and his first new pair of KLF20 started to rattle with hard use back then and the local Klipsch Dealer replaced them free(still in warranty). 6 years later he purchased a second pair used for HT rears and they too were loose and the seller dropped the price and we removed the drivers and reguled the insides . There is pictures on Audio Karma Klpsch section and the Klipsch Factory Forum where a member (Moray James) and several others did a total re-work and rebraced a pair. No big deal if they come loose, a easy fix we just reglued them. And worth the trouble. The 30 series with a pair of 12" Rocks. The C7 is a awsome center, I think one of their best ( I sold a RC-62).Call Bob Crites he has Ti diaphragms for those tweeters in all the KLF/C7 a major improvement over the stock poly diaphragms. I think the KLF sound great to me stock.So enjoy, now find a another pair of any KLF10/20/30 for your rear surrounds............awsome 5.1 or 5.2 HT system. You will have to spend 3 times this amount to better the sound system you have now.
thank you louis ,i don t know how to check the front and rear motor boards please explain ..... but the seller has another pair that is well used to demo and i will also
hook up the pair that i m buying to check for rattles of cones or drivers ,buzzing or ringing in tweeters ,i was thinking of living with the stock
tweeters for a while and then maybe getting bob crites upgrades tweeters.
i have rs 52 s for surrounds and i love em and don't think i dare tell the wife here is another huge towers for surrounds like the klf 10,
she is mad as it is with me looking daily at klipsch deals on ebay and klipsch forums .
so if the glue or panels came loose it is an easy fix and stillworth it ?......
