DIY Klipsch Belle Fully Horn Loaded Speaker Clones

My friend Kenny built a pair of Belle clones for my friend Dave. They turned out amazng but I wish I had more pics. I owned Belles years ago and wish I had never sold them. They sound amazing.

Klipsch Belle Wallflower Sister Of The Klipschorn

There were not very many Klipsch Belle speaker advertisements in print. These are the only two I could find.
 
The Klipsch Belle was my first HiFi speaker. This is my audio room right after moving many years ago. Klipsch Belle speakers, George Wright WLA12 preamp, Canary Audio CA-300 300B SET and some cd and turntable. This system was really good and in some ways I always try to get back to what this system did correctly. Now my room is covered in vinyl instead of CDs. Large two way horns bi-amped instead of store made system. It is really weird looking back.

Klipsch Belle Prototype

This is a rare Klipsch Belle. The photo was taken when it was located at the Klipsch Audio History Museum in Hope, AR. I think it is now at a University in New Mexico where they also have a Klipsch Museum. The Belle is one of the most beautiful speakers ever made and was in production until 2006. RIP. The performance was a little better than a La Scalla. The difference is the shape. The cabinet is not as deep as the La Scala so flexing is not a problem with the Belle. In 2006 Klipsch fixed this in the La Scala by using 1 inch mdf on the bass horn. The Belle can also be crossed over a little higher than the La Scala. I was told by a Klipsch ingineer that 550hz could be used.
