  1. are these a suitable replacement for the Chorus 2 passives, or is that a different specific part #?
  2. Anyone in New England looking for a KLF-C7 - all stock no smoking or pets works as it should. Cabinet is in excellent condition! Asking $425
  3. That is what I have done thus far - just replated the tweeter diaphragms in these and my Academy center and havent' touched crossovers yet.
  4. I have opportunity at a pair of Forte 2 in Oiled Oak - excellent condition no scratches, smoking, pets, etc... all original no upgrades.... not listed for sale but would like to pair fair price for both parties, what would these typically sell for recently? sorry if this isnt the right forum, if someone would direct me I'll repost properly!
  5. Also thrilled to report that almost an entire can of DeOxit spray was used and the input selector knob finally was moving and moving well and alas - both channels work and sound amazing! a couple of the switches were quite dirty too - one of the speaker selector switches spring wasn't clicking, a little cleaning to do and a light to replace at some point but for now just enjoying it... thanks everyone!
  6. I am happy to report that after a nice Sunday drive to Boston area this 730 is now in Maine at its new home - will start to work to repair/restore to its working glory!! Thanks to John!
  7. Can you post pics of the academy pls?
  8. Prefer complete I am not confident in my soldering skills
  9. No longer needed thanks - one of my friends was over and we were listening to music and I gave him a fair price on the Heresy and he wants to slowly rebuild and ordered Crites woofer replacements - everyone is happy and he has his first pair of Klipsch! Thanks always for the great guidance and reach out!
  10. Any chance anyone did the Crites crossovers and then upgraded beyond that to the ALK, etc... looking to update inexpensively if anyone has any kicking around!
  11. I sold these to this guy many years ago and noticed he has one listed on FB marketplace - they are walnut oiled located in Portland Maine.. so for New England folks maybe opportunity to have as a center channel for other KG... Not affiliated just passing along - he doesn't seem to have these listed on CL so if someone has interest glad to reach out on behalf and connect the two of you. Thanks! James
  12. Thanks again everyone for the tips - the glue has set and it’s working perfectly! Gave the walnut a refresh while it was disconnected and added the badge to match the Chorus2 in my setup.
  13. Thanks I've heard good things about the H3 upgrade, at this point looking for inexpensive fix to get them going as-is.
  14. GREAT NEWS! the dust cap on the offending woofer was hanging on by a thread - I took it out today cleaned it up and re-glued will wait 24 hours to test but looks promising. The other woofer dust cap was also starting in one spot to come off so I carefully took an exacto and took that one off and glued that one as well.
  15. Great tip - I had that happen on my Forte's years ago and didn't remember that until you mention it. I will definitely take a look and see! Wouldnt that be great if that were it!
  16. Hi all - Noticed that one of the woofers on my beloved Academy has a rattle to it - looks like this is no longer made any chance anyone has a "Spare" they might be willing to sell?? Thanks! James
  17. Also I have not yet found one! I also see you are from Ooltewah! I have worked for Unum for 20 years and I've been to Chattanooga hundreds of times - lovely area!
  18. LOL yes a pool in Maine! House came with a nice inground pool - we use it heavily June-August and then its just too cold at night to maintain the temp.... it wouldn't be a good investment but where the house had one we do enjoy it!
  19. Thanks everyone - have not found one yet - the eBay ones I've seen are either local pickup only or "as is" where there is an issue.
  20. Hello - Recently acquired a project pair of H2, they are walnut oiled - they were original owner but I don't believe they were ever dusted or cleaned well. I am trying to inexpensively and slowly refurbish them for my teenage son and set them up in our basement. One of the woofers had a small tear, I am trying to glue/patch, but would prefer to replace it if anyone had a "spare" in stock they were willing to part with for reasonable (knowing it would have to be shipped to Maine). I will also eventually replace the grill cloth and replace the caps as funds allow. Thanks in advance! James
  21. Thank you for the suggestions - what I left out was budget is also a constraint so even the extra $100 for new xovers vs. rebuild makes a difference right now... may just need to live with the down time and send my OEM in to Crites for rebuild. THank you and Happy Holidays!
  22. Zero handy/electrical skills - would like to find a low cost means to refresh the crossovers in my beloved Chorus II's - I was going to send them in to Crites for rebuild but with the hassle of shipping time etc... trying to see if anyone may have a pair of used Crites crossover boards or rebuilt crossovers collecting dust?
  23. Rotel Receiver and Rotel CD Player now sold - ProJect and Heresy still available? Anyone want to come to Southern Maine in February and hear them LOL?
