We are now offering our customers the V-Trac-II midrange horn upgrade for the
Klipsch Khorn. This new horn has all of the same great features and attributes of the
original, but with an improved horn throat section and improved damping.
Please note: throughout this website you will see photographs of the original V-Trac midrange horns.
Photographs of the new V-TracII midrange horn are forthcoming. We appreciate your patience.

detailed information about each piece
We have many customers who prefer to upgrade one component at a time, or to purchase a smaller package as an alternative to the
complete top-of-the-line package.
We can accommodate any requests. Here's more information on partial upgrades, as well as
individual component pricing listed below.
If you were to choose only one component in your Khorns to upgrade, we would recommend it be the midrange horn. The stock Khorn midrange horn (all models) is a perfect horn to use if you want to illustrate what a 'honky' horn sounds like. The tiny (11/16" diameter inlet), and long throat of this horn, is responsible for creating colorations and a constricted sound to the midrange that is completely unacceptable by modern horn speaker standards, and also completely fixable with the upgrade to the Volti Audio Khorn V-TracII Horns.
Open up, warm up, and smooth out the midrange with the Volti Audio V-TracII horn. You'll be amazed at how this midrange horn improves everything about your Khorns - even the upper bass takes on better definition and detail. You'll need our V-120 adapters to use with your stock K55 drivers. The price for the V-TracII horns and the midrange adapters is $1,399. With this setup, you'll continue to use your stock K77 tweeters and stock crossovers.
You might consider adding the Beyma CP-25 Tweeters with your purchase of the V-TracII horns. The V-TracII horns come with a box built into the horn frame that holds any number of different tweeters - each with its own motorboard mounting it into the frame. If you order the Beyma tweeters with the midrange horns instead of waiting until a later date, you will save the cost of the second pair of motorboards at that time. The Beyma tweeters really extend the high frequencies much more so than the stock K77 tweeters, and they are very smooth and sweet sounding compression tweeters at a very reasonable price point.
When we order a new batch of CP25's, we inspect and end up rejecting about 20% of the order that our distributor sends us because they don't meet our high standards. The ones that do make it past the intial inspection are modified by us to provide a smoother response than the stock factory ones. So when you buy Beyma CP25 tweeters from Volti Audio, you are getting the very best sounding CP25's there are.
Khorn V-TracII horns, V-120 midrange adapters, and Beyma CP25 tweeters - $1,797
This is what we consider the perfect "starter package" for those who are on a tight budget, but still want great "bang for the buck"
sound improvement for their Khorns.
Another upgrade you might consider, after doing the midrange and tweeter upgrade, is to change out the old crossovers for the Volti Audio VTk-400 Crossover Networks. Similar in design philosophy to the Klipsch 'Type-A' Balancing Network (a very simple design that was Mr. Klipsch's favorite), the VTK-400 crossovers have just a few, carefully chosen parts to do the job of balancing the system. Unlike the old Klipsch 'Type-A' networks, the parts used in the Volti Audio crossovers are much higher in quality, and there is a degree of flexibility built into the networks that allow the end-user to adjust their system sound to their own liking.
The VTK-400 networks perfectly integrate the components of the Khorn and let's the system speak with one voice, for a musical experience that is as pure as the source. Works great with stock components, and sets you up for being able to use all the Volti upgrades in the future.
The Big BMS Midrange Drivers
The Big BMS Midrange Drivers
A very important part of the Volti Audio Khorn Upgrade journey is to replace those old K55 midrange drivers (originally designed as firehouse station siren drivers - yes really), and get yourself a pair of the big BMS midrange drivers. If you're original upgrade package included the V-120 adapters to use with the K55 drivers, we'll take those back in trade on a pair of the BMS drivers. The BMS 4592 midrange drivers are the ones you want if you want to experience the full potential of the V-Trac midrange horn upgrade.
A letter from a customer who originally purchased all of the upgrades except the BMS drivers and then eventually purchased them to complete his Khorn upgrade:
As I remember, although it has been several year back now, the V-Trac horns with the original Atlas drivers made a tremendous improvement to the midrange in my Khorns.
The horn upgrade seemed to lower distortion and make the sound just more alive.
Now the BMS drivers add a whole new level of clarity, detail, and dynamic response that is really astonishing. So I would say both upgrade steps (the horns and
the BMS drivers) provide about an equal improvement although in different ways. They really compliment one another, and I don't think you could have one without
the other. Please tell your customers that going to the BMS drivers is just the next step after the horns, and well worth the cost.
