How are you supposed to know if they need resealing?

Well I have noticed a product that Layne Audio lists in their parts list. look down on the page at the cloth surround/paper cone sealer looks like it could be the answer! Good luck! Franksta

I just snagged a pair of what I thought were 22's but turns out one is a 22 and one is a 24. Seems the only difference is the input: the 22 has two terminals and the 24 has an RCA jack. Otherwise, they seem identical, except for a different color on the front panel. Drivers seem the same. Here are photos:

Hmmmmm, no photos attached. Here:

Edit: Hey cool, I just responded to a 6-year old post!

I would add Model 30's to the list. Their smooth, balanced and effortless sound is a treat.

They're exactly the same. KLH took the Model Twenty-Twos and redesignated them the Model Twenty-Four when they included them in the Twenty-Four compact stereo. There was a later development, the Model Twenty-Four, Series II which had RCA jacks instead of binding posts. Otherwise they were the same speaker.

I've got the whole KLH 24 system (phono/AM/FM & spks) and I'm working on some tube amps. I may try the tube w/ KLH 24 idea. Thanks!
Those things are a lot of fun. I had a Model Thirty-Five system that I bought new in the early '70s. Wish I still had it.

I love 'em but I have to say that the ADS L400 can give 'em a run for their money.

They really are pretty nice. I somehow hung onto the Thirties that came with the Model Thirty-Five system I bought 40 years ago. (I have NO idea what happened to the rest of the system.) Then a few years ago I picked up another pair at a thrift for $8.00.

Well, what else could I do but stack those puppies?! Pretty freakin' amazing!
