  1. Noted. Gil made them. I won't be able to get any extra photos/info until they are picked up. Joe is not local.
  2. The last update I received was that he is improving mentally, but still paralyzed on one side.
  3. I asked Joe if that would be a possibility as that would be great and I would just store things for Gil. However, Joe didn't think that he will be in a place where that would be an option.
  4. I am hoping not to ship anything. The crossovers might be possible, but the horns would be a bit much. If someone else local wants to help with shipping stuff, I would appreciate it.
  5. Sadly, Gil McDermott @WMcD had a stroke and will and will likely be in a nursing home when he gets out of the hospital. Gil is improving mentally, but he has a long road ahead physically. Gil has been a mainstay on this Forum for 20 years or so. I am trying to help Joe @JoeR , Gil's brother-in-law, sell his audio gear to help with Gil's expenses. Original thread: https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/204315-gil-mcdermott-needs-some-thoughtsprayers-formerly-any-one-in-the-chicago-area-want-some-speakers/ I currently only have the attached photos that Joe provided and haven't seen/heard anything, so I can't speak to the condition yet. However, I am looking to get Gil a fair price, since I think he will really need the money. Gil has: (3) walnut oil Belle (I don't know the year/crossovers yet) (2) walnut Forte 1 or 2 (I don't think they are Chorus), McIntosh gear: MC2505. (50W power amp), MR74 (AM/FM Stereo Tuner), MI-3 (maximum performance indicator; basically an audio oscilloscope) Pair of home built Khorns Pair of home built La Scala bass bins (I think there is a set of horns for these as well) Some 15" woofers Some crossovers. The items are located in downtown Chicago. We are still working on when they will be available to pick up, likely later this month. I know that the Belles, Forte, and McIntosh gear will be easier to sell. We would also like to find new homes for the homebuilt as well. Please PM me if you are interested or would like to help. Thank you. Brandon WMcD audio-1.pdf
  6. Hi All, I have been speaking with Joe @JoeR, Gil is improving mentally, but he has a long road ahead physically. I will try to help out with selling the audio gear: (3) walnut Belle, walnut Forte 1 or 2 (I don't think they are Chorus), McIntosh gear (MC2505, MR74, MI-3), some home built Khorns and La Scala bass bins, etc. I will post in the garage sale section, I only have the photos he provided and haven't seen/heard anything, so I can't speak to the condition yet. However, I think Gil could really use the money, so please PM me know if you are interested. They are located in downtown Chicago. Still working on when they will be available to pick up. Thank you.

  7. I contacted them via PM and am willing to help. I could probably store some gear in hopes that Gil will recover and be able to enjoy it in the future.
  8. Very sorry to hear the news. I'm in the Chicago area and can help if needed.
  9. Very nice. 16 ohm version of the bms-4592nd
  10. Very pretty. I love the lacewood veneer on my 60th anniversary khorns.
  11. Very nice. Location for locals is always useful.
  12. These are a great deal: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/393387055700627
  13. They are very rare (from the thread I linked to): "Yes, one of the rarest, as only 48 were recorded. #12 shows it shipped on Nov. 9, 1956. However, several other units reflect factory updates at later dates. Not sure if #12 just didn't get an update in the logbook. "
  14. Here is a link to a thread with more info on early shorthorns: These are the original hardware config.

  16. From ad: I bought these speakers 1995. I replaced the tweeters and mid range drivers in both cabinets.The woofers are still original. They are an acoustic cabinet. There are cones on the back of the cabinets for more efficient low frequencies. Each cabinet has the capacity of 1000 watts into 8 ohms. That's where my biggest problem came from I didn't have a powerful enough amp. The cabinets are made out of all oak. Each cabinet weighs 100 lbs. I worked at a furniture shop about 20 years ago so I ask the guy in the paint booth if he would clear coat them and he did. The cabinets are still in good shape for me having them for 26 years. The only place the cabinets show signs of wear are where they meet the floor from moisture. The drivers that I installed were OEM. I would prefer not to trade. I think these speakers had a 5 year warranty and they were still under it when I replaced the drivers. No affiliation. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/336025918321170
  17. The RS-62 are 28lbs ea. They are very good. GLWS
