Take a look at GR Research's up graded crossover for your Klipsch speakers. While your there take a look at his DIY speakers, I just built his X-Statik and X-Voce and by far the best sounding speaker I've ever heard.

And how it relates to actual audible traits? Without such info, it's meaningless.

With a high Rout part of the impedance curve is convolved with the FR. So in the example i showed you would see some peaking between 1.5-6 KHz and some added roughness elsewhere.

Crites has XO that fix the impedance of some Klipsch, LaScala, maybe Forte

Thank you everyone for the responses.

Building would require space and tools I just don’t have access to.

Klipsch did not work for me. Klipsch stuff is hopelessly overrated.
If I may suggest a decent speaker, look at The ZuAudio Omen Dirty Weekend or perhaps a set of Tekton. These paired with a decent amplifier gives you a religious experience.

Only speculations.
You would've had to hear it in side by side comparison to "prettier" impedance curve of same type of speaker drivers if audibility evaluation is to be made.

I see. Dave did qualify your above quote by beginning with "With a high Rout".

'High' is a relative term so could you accept the quote on that basis?

I accepted it as a speculation.

I thought it was one of KEF's tricks to make the speaker impedance appear as "resistive" as possible, so the amp doesnt have to drive some whacky load. According to them, their speakers (as such) make your amp sound better by making it not have to work so hard to compensate.

If you look at some KEF crossovers, there's elements in there that all they do is help to flatten the impedance as seen by the amplifier. This is nothing new...like a "Zobel" for the amp.

As in input Zobels in the the crossover? Sure, quite a few do that, to flatten an excessive impedance rise from filtering, sometimes the upper box resonance peak in a vented cabinet etc.
