Klipsch RP-8000F and Klipsch RP-600C Upgrade...
« on: 13 Feb 2021, 05:26 pm »
I have just ordered the Klipsch RP-8000F and the RP-600C upgrades from GR Research. Before I orders I called in and had to leave a message. It wasn't even 1 hour later, he called me back and answered all my questions. I am very excited to go through this Upgrade process and make these budget speakers come alive. My order will have to wait for the tube connectors to come in and then it will be shipped out. I will try and document as much as I can during the upgrade. Maybe a YouTube Video too.

For now its time to keep listening to my music and making more notes about what I hear and then after the upgrade do it again with those same songs. I am hoping for more detail and a full body in the midrange. We will see????

Here is how I wired up the crossover. I think it will fit just fine across the support in the middle of the box and not touch the speaker magnets.

I finished up the RP-600C crossover upgrade last night. This is my first go at doing this. I am glad I did the center channel first and I can't wait to start on the RP-8000F towers soon. They are going to sound great.

Here is the RP-8000F Upgrade Process. I think the part I dis-like to most is prepping the cabinet to make sure the NO-Res with go down good and stick. Also if your wire crimps are like mine the old crossover posts need to be cut off to get them in there for the tube connectors. The other thing is to make sure you put the woofers back in the right way so that the beauty rings will snap into the 2 holes. Every thing is back together and it is sounding good already. After they burn-in a bit it will be even better.. Thanks Danny for all the help.

One more post for you here. This is the frequency sweep from REW with my UMIK-One. So the one from the Tweeter really shows what this upgrade does for the highs and the dip at 1,000K. The other two I am thinking my room got into the mix. haha. But the highs being brought down is easier on my ears (I do like that). Anyway this is what I got and wanted to show you guys. Keep in mind I am getting more detail for sure and the vocals in music is just amazing me so far.
