  1. Hi All - greetings from still summer like Phoenix, where needing to thin the herd (recently picked up some CF-3s). Up for consideration here before putting on local CL is a nice Forte 1 pair in WO finish and consecutive SNs. I have refreshed the crossovers with Crites capacitors and also updated to Crites Ti tweeter diaphrams (one went bad, have the other good one if desired). I also have the risers, although the corner plastic pieces need to be reglued in (I didn't use the risers). Pictures below - cabs have some marks here & there - I have a couple close ups on biggest issues. On the top of one cab, can see a couple slight cup/can water stain - can notice it at certain angles (not obnoxious stains). I'm asking a little less than what I have in them, that's OK as I'd be tickled if they could go to a forum member. Given their size and my inability to package, have this as local sale only - I'm in Phoenix area so if somebody in AZ, we could probably work something out. Please let me know if any questions or information needed - thanks for looking!
  2. no affiliation Beautiful set of Heresy's here in birchwood for sale. Serial numbers off by one. All original, unmolested condition. https://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/ele/d/maricopa-vintage-klipsch-heresy-ii/6993257569.html
  3. no affiliation Klipsch Chorus II Hi-Fi speakers. Consecutive serial numbers. I believe this pair was manufactured in 1996. As far as I know these are stock and have not had anything replaced. They are fully functional and sound great. Cosmetically I would grade them a 6/10. The finish has nicks and some scrapes. A little black touch up paint would help a lot. One of the passive woofers on the back has a bump in the center, see pics. This doesn't affect the sound. The speakers are available to demo. Serious buyers can contact me to set up a time. I am NOT currently taking offers on these. NO trades. Cash only. https://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/ele/d/phoenix-klipsch-chorus-ii-hi-fi/6993587694.html
  4. There's somebody here in Phoenix that has 2.5 for $75 - not exactly sure of differences. Thinking can't go too wrong for $75.... https://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/mob/d/phoenix-klipsch-kg-25-book-shelf/6984940011.html
  5. I like the cover over the label, keeping it nice and sharp - haven’t seen that before.
  6. GLWS - I see the Zebra CD and I have that one - if a CD could get worn out from play, that would be mine 😀 Love that band but rarely see them played on any commercial broadcasts - now I have these songs floating in my head!
  7. no affiliation - listed at $799 https://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/ele/d/flagstaff-klipsch-cornwall-ii/6968957963.html “A very nice set of Klipsch Cornwall II loudspeakers in original condition in walnut veneer cabinets. These are the sought after versions with the factory upgraded crossovers and are of course, very efficient, making lower powered amplification sound more accurate through the horn -loaded high and mid- frequency drivers and well constructed low frequency woofer. These are in nice shape with nice original grill covers and insignia and they have not been abused as I am an adult audiophile and drove these with a specially made boutique low powered amp.”
  8. No problem and did you see the Klipsch Cornwall II (walnut veneer cabinets) just posted on Craigslist Flagstaff? I’ll post a listing in Alerts with a link.
  9. Hi Andy - greetings, would a Forte I’s (WO walnut oil) pair be in the consideration set? I have an available pair that have been Crites recapped & Ti diaphragm tweeters for a reasonable price - picked up an Epic CF-3 set last week and the Forte I’s need a new home. I’m down in Chandler. If in the consideration set, I can IM you with further details - just a quick ping. Thanks!
  10. Hi Mike - LOL, now that you bring that up - maybe there is something associated to monsoon that raises an impulse with me for new speakers! We got hammered last night in Chandler, a classic monsoon with winds, lightning, thunder, rain - just like last year's purchase!!
  11. Hi All - so an update here, where these bad boys are now in my possession! The cabinets were in somewhat rougher shape with some lighter scratches, no deep gouges (the Craigslist pic resolutions were not good) & there was some shrinking of the front side black edge material (kinda plasticky stripping) & grills dusty/dirty & no badges. All the speakers look in excellent condition though - and has the short tubes, so thinking V2. I will post some pictures over the weekend. BTW - OMG - I knew these bad boys were heavy but holy smokes, 100# each - have to eat my Wheaties when moving these around!!! Long story short - $350 for them and I felt this leaves me some room for updates. Now have something to dink around with over the 3 day weekend . I think some cherry stain and wood conditioner will go a long ways here & then I'll see about crossover build - my first objective is just to give the cabs/grills a thorough clean and fire them up for some initial rock & roll! I'll be sure to check out the numerous Epic refurbish topics/posts here - this should keep me occupied for a little while. Now have to thin the heard - my Forte 1s and Heresy 2s will have to head out for a new home (leaves me with 9 Klipsch speakers). Thanks to all on this wonderful forum! Aloha, Rick
  12. the RSW-12 -would fill in the low end on these - where I think the RSW-12 goes well with just about anything doesn't it??!? Certainly fills in the lows on my current front Forte IIs surrounds - can definitely shake the house and you know when it's outputting. Haven't heard anything from seller yet, if does go through - will definitely have to thin the heard by selling Forte 1s and Heresy IIs (both in my garage right now)
