    • Sadly, speakers tend to depreciate over time.  Very few if any will fetch the MSRP ever again after purchase.
    • @Pastor James Hi and welcome... Make sure the metal jumpers are in place and tightened down.     If you are not bi-amping the speaker and would just like to connect it traditionally, then you will need the two metal jumpers that came with the speaker. The metal jumpers are simply a conductive medium to carry the signal between the two sets of terminals. When using the metal jumpers, you will only need to wire into either the top, or the bottom, set of terminals. You do not need to wire into all 4 terminals since the jumpers are carrying the signal to both sets of terminals. It does not matter which set of terminals you wire into; wiring into the top or the bottom is just fine. Please note: If you no longer have the metal jumpers, or have misplaced them, you can use two small strips of standard speaker wire to achieve the same result. Again, you are just needing a conductive medium to carry the signal between both sets of terminals. The strips of speaker wire should be set exactly like the jumper bars are; black connected to black, red connected to red.
    • I went through great pains to obtain a very nice pair of Altec Model 19s. First thing I did was a full recap.    So, I’ve been trying speaker placement, different amps (tube and SS) and acoustic treatment. The Altecs are fantastic sounding…   BUT…I’ve made a huge effort to make myself love the 19s more than my Forte III. I have them set up for easy A/B auditioning.    For me the Forte III win. They are more forward, detailed and, most of all, cohesive.    I’ve read the 19s are the pinnacle of speaker quality but I have to remind myself the Forte III are modern $4k speakers (msrp). They are REALLY good.    I’ve owned and compared dozens of speakers and the FIII are the best I’ve ever owned.    Am I crazy?  Am I missing something with the Altecs?  It COULD be the room and placement but, as I said, I’ve done a lot of experimentation (not easy with 150 pound speakers!).    Damn. I just love the Forte III. A lot.  They image and have incredible intimacy the Altecs seem to lack.   I’m listening to the F III now. Just magic.          
    • I wonder if the airline would allow them on the plane. I could ticket 3 seats cheaper than these sell for here.

    • I'd been wanting either La Scalas or Belle Klipsches, ever since I saw them at Executive Stereo at Fairview Mall in Toronto in 1972.  In 2006, I nearly bumped into a La Scala in a local vintage hi-fi shop, and two days later it and its brother were in my living room.  Since then, I got a pair of 1980s Belles from the Music Department at UVic (I just needed one, to serve as Front Centre and TV stand.  The spare one sits in a back corner), and later a pair of La Scala IIs from a guy south of Vancouver.  They became my new main left and right speakers, then the OG La Scalas became my Surround speakers, replacing a pair of Heresy IIs.   The Heresy IIs, which had come from a guy who lived north of Kingston, Ontario, are now with a Forum member from up-Island, who's very happy with them.  That's 4 Heritage speakers that I've brought to the Island.  A noble mission, IMO.   My TO connection?  I lived there for 30 years, from Richmond Hill to Etobicoke, and many points in between.  Now I live in Victoria.
    • not correct at least according to klipsch      
    • can  You post a Picture of the Klipsch B-2T so was can finally see what it looks iike
    • As long as the risers are closed, they should do no harm to the sound.     But if you think the HF section on your Scalas is too low, maybe you should get a nice reclining armchair or love seat, and get yourself down to squawker level.     I don't like reclining sofas, because the middle seat doesn't recline, due to the lack of a place to put the control lever.  However, there are some love seats that are just as wide as a sofa, and have two extra-wide cushions, instead of three regular-width ones.  Then you have full-width recline action (reclination?, which makes for a pleasantly large near-horizontal viewing area.  Some of the powered sofa-width love seats even have a separately-operated headrest section, which you can raise up so you don't fall asleep.
