How about a description?
How many drivers, sizes, shapes, layout, dimensions etc. Is there not any identification marks or numbers on the connecting wire terminals?

Good advice, a decent description and no need to shout...

I keep forgetting about "SHOUTING".
Ht 38”
Wth: 16”
Depth : 13”
There is an oval bass driver,a horn and a tweeter.One round port and a rectangular rebated part. There's an 8-10" wood bit at the bottom. Hope this works

Unless the memory cells have failed me KEF never made loudspeaker incorporating a Horn Driver. The oval unit is probably a variant of the B139 series. Is there no manufacturer information on the back of the loudspeaker? Have you looked on the backs of the drive units themselves? Might need a screwdriver shaped tool... Smile

Round or eliptical?

Round KK3 with a"built-in stand".

Elliptical modified K1 baffle.

Either way if you want to flog them place an ad in "List, exchange or Buy" the rest of this forum is not for selling speakers or tying to get bits on the cheap!

Got to go clear my ears. Too loud in here.
Can't someone explain to him how to post a picture? Would not mind getting that figured out myself.

Taken fron FAQ at the top of the page.

Quote:
Can I post Images?
Images can indeed be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.some-unknown-place.net/my-picture.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML (if allowed).









I'm pleased to say I don't do blogs, web pages or write code Very Happy .

The downside is that I cannot write a virus to include ["ebay_inhibit"] in this site's (or any other site to which I contribute) code to prevent plagiarism or embed virual attachments so that people cannot pinch images of speakers that I own Crying or Very sad .

I don't know how to prevent us from rippers but i do know that pictures can be given a watermark.
I guess you've seen it, lots of pics on the net have.
If a (b)advertiser uses your picture(s) it's always possible to send a bill Very Happy (or a complaint to the webmaster of the virtual garagesale).
Good luck, Bert

hificlassics_de from German ePrey has copied my text about the construction of the TM1 and called it " Original Sales Description TANGENT TM1" !
The fax will be going to eBay in the morning Evil or Very Mad .

In the morning.
No rudeness, excuses or blustering (like US/UK ePreyers/Augoners), just promptly removed the text Smile .
