Always thought the I's had tighter bass, and with a sig gen, mine go into the 30's before there's an appreciable roll-off. ---------------- I guess we just have to agree to disagree. It's what makes it all so much fun.

I just can't deal with the rear passive radiator. It's noisy with low frequencies at loud volumes (no EQ) and I think it would be easier to position the speaker with ports on the front. ---------------- I was j/k with ya Dr. They're your speaks so have fun. I was wondering what you might be powering the chorus II's with? I've had about 10 different amplifiers hooked up to these in the past and only a couple of them were disappointments in the bass department. Personally i like an amp with a little muscle at a 4 ohm load to handle the bass driver. This being if you want to rock out. I do agree these are placement sensitive with the passive. I've tried several placements over the years and find that a couple of good corners do wonders. Good luck.
  3. Someone really needs to save these chorus II's.
  4. LMAO Sarge Isn't that the truth

I have just heard comments by Forum members about how they think the Chorus stacks up well to the Cornwall in listening tests. For myself, I love the natural, uncolored sound of my Fortes, but this is admittedly biased. ---------------- Maybe the room is a little too small for the chorus 2's to really breathe.

Leok once made a posting here where he thought that the midrange driver on the Chrorus II may have changed at some point. Same model number, but something about it sounding different when he compared two generations of the Chorus II ... he actually preferred the newer version. Do you know if the source or materials used in the diaphram may have changed over the 1989 to 1995 period? ---------------- Have owned every year of chorus II's and the midrange drivers were all the same.
  7. Aragon makes some nice equipment IMHO. I have spent many years with an aragon 4004mkII. But to make a long story short my old Marantz 2325 does so much better on a pair of horns than my aragon can do. Less brittle highs, a heck of alot fuller midrange and a punchier bass. Note i said punchier because its really hard to beat an old aragon in the bass department unless your talking a krell IMHO. Got a new carver zr1600 on order to see if its the real deal or hoopla. But anyways alot of nice equipment to choose from and thats what makes it all so much fun. Good luck.
  8. maybe its the second hand noise dodger
  9. Moon that was just plain hilarious. Brought tears to my eyes.
  10. The chorus is a nice speaker and less fussy about room positioning. The chorus II on the other hand i find particularly fussy about set up. The passive radiator needs a corner to shine. I have always found the mids a touch smoother with the chorus II as well. So with the proper set up chorus II gets my vote between the two. But then again i might be biased because i would take a chorus II over most of the klipsch offerings for several reasons. Good Luck, Randy
  11. Thats good to hear Russ! Thanks We are going to see how the zr amps do with a pair of chorus II's
  12. Hey Russ, How's that carving doing? I have been thinking about giving a zr1600 a try. I have a little concern about the hiss you speak of during some recordings. Do you find that happening on all recordings or just a select few? Thanks
  13. Have to agree here with the chorus II / Forte I-II comments above. You really need to place the passives near a wall or preferrably a corner to enjoy the true capabilities of these speakers. If you just set them out in the middle of the room they are weak in bass compared to the cornwall. But put them in a corner and its a different ball game. Personally i find the passive designs to actually be much tighter in response. But another side note.........they are all great!!
  14. Hi Mikko, Well at the moment i have the new replacement woofer from klipsch installed. I have the original sitting in a box awaiting its shippment to woofer.com. Once i recieve it back i will just put the replacement in a box for a spare. Sure is an expensive spare. But as far as the sound of the new replacement from klipsch after about 20 hours of burn in i cannot distinguish one woofer from the other. So its a great match just dont expect it to look like the orginal. Good luck.
  15. Congratulations Gil, Sure glad to see one of the good guys got em. Hope they turn out to be great for ya.
  16. Maybe he meant 86 year old grandma and manufactured in 1990!
  17. Well forget the idea of the kit. After i read your post more closely i realize you dont have a woofer to rebuild. Just maybe i was able to educate others who have a woofer and want an exact replacement. Ebay might be your best option. Good luck.
  18. Mikko, I just went through this same situation basically with a new woofer for my chorus II. The original woofer is a K 48 E. But you will not get an exact replacement from klipsch. You will recieve a K 48 EP from klipsch. This is actually a pro speaker and is the only replacement they sell. Also you will spend 236.00 + shipping. And cosmetically speaking it isnt even close. So if you are looking for the woofers to be of same appearance you will have to look at another option. Now there is another option. Klipsch does carry a K 48 E woofer kit. This will have same appearnce as your original. But you will either have to have knowledge on how to rebuild your woofer or find a qualified person. I believe there is a member on the forum that will be performing these services for other members for an undisclosed amount. But i would imagine being a fellow member he will have great prices. Another option which i was told about is Woofer.com. I have been told that there have not been any complaints and their work is top notch. They are located in Louisville,Kentucky. Hope i was able to help, Good Luck
  19. In response to customary practices...........agreed. Just a 4 year newbie gaining yet another post
  20. KLF 30's do make for a great rock in roll speakers as well as others mentioned. But i've done alot of comparisons over the years with my trusty old chorus II's and they can hang with the best of them IMHO. When you talk about having corners, the 15 inch passives just love to be stuck in corners and they can easily fill a room of that size. Good luck in your search.
  21. MJAudio, I sure dont see it necessary for you to have to apologize for offering your academy hear. Probably only 1/10th of 1% of all Klipsch owners know of this site anyways. This is a public forum as well. Klipsch owners,Aragon owners and now Jamo owners have a right to feel ownership on this forum. So dont feel apologetic MJ, its your forum as well. I think it might be nice if Amy and team would put up a classified section. Sure would help from confusion and insults. Good luck with your sale.
  22. Here was the real sleeper but then again maybe not. http://cls.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls.pl?spkrfull&1113095593 I was the first view and emmidiately sent an email that i would buy it. I then waited until next morning and sent a follow up email.His response was that initial email must of got lost or something. Then i read sold......figures.
  23. Fletcherkane, I cant really give you an honest opinion between the chorus II and the forte. But i can between the chorus II and the forte II. In 1990 when i did alot of listening and comparing between the 2 i just felt the difference in size translated to the difference in sound as well. If i had a small room i would buy the forte II. But with a mid sized to large room the chorus II really starts to show off its size. Both speakers are very enjoyable and in my opinion its all about the room you are putting them in.
  24. The rear picture of that academy looks aweful scary.
