    How Much Do Your Neighbors Love Klipsch?

    After serving in the army my sister and her husband said that I could store my stereo at their place, a modest 14 x 70 foot mobile home. We never thought much about how far the music would travel. I think it was a holloween party that finally brought the police over. I guess it was pretty late bc the cops had to shine flashlights though the windows of the trailer to get our attention. On that Monday my sis had to pay her lot rent and was told that the park manager received 85 #$@!!! complaints about that #!@#!!! stereo!

    The first photo has a glossy reflection that looks like a lacquered finish and the label says lacquer, my vote is for lacquer.

    Chorus in columbus

    Not mine fortunately. https://columbus.craigslist.org/ele/d/westerville-klipsch-chorus-with-bob/6795435629.html Klipsch Chorus with Bob Crites upgrades - $1500 (Westerville) My wife and I have decided to downgrade the speakers in our living room. WE feel that bookshelf speakers will be a better match aesthetically moving forward for OUR living room redesign. I upgraded the tweeters, mids, and crossovers with Bob Crites components. The mids and crossovers are the standard Crites offerings, the tweeters are his Titanium stock. Functionally they are better than new 10/10, the condition of the cabinets can be seen in pictures, probably 7/10. They really look better in person, the camera exaggerated the poor aesthetics of the grills, just like my wife. Anyway, $1500 for the speakers or the wife, whatever.

    Moving La Scala II upstairs solo?

    If you can get an appliance dolly and your good with it and it's a straight shot, then it shouldn't be a problem. It all depends on the person and their tools. I knew an old man in his eighties that built a wooden slide for his basement stairs somehow there was an electrical winch involved and he could move washers and dryers and deep freezers up and down those stairs.

    Klipsch La Scala Question

    I think the crossovers are original. They appear to have the same caps as a pair of 1975 scalas that were in my recent past.

    K-510 pic needed of "broken" horn

    I bought one over a year ago. The label fell off after the first washing.

    How about this one? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F173692696856 An obvious counterfeit.

    @Emile. Perhaps you could make your own "mumps" with modeling clay. From what I understand that is how the chief made the first one and you have an example to follow.

    Forte crossover upgrade

    Not an upgrade? The op doesn't feel that way. Nor did I when I did the same a few years ago.

    La Scala beaters in Sandusky, OH, $499

    Geauga lake amusement park had the best wooden coaster imo. Called the Big Dipper and built in the 20s it had manual brake people stationed along the track. That was the smoothest wooden coaster I was ever on. Later it was changed over to airbrakes and that totally ruined the ride.

    NFL - 2018

    Even though I don't follow football any more, when I hear of the steelers loosing it brings a small smile to my face.

    You are super close. I'm in homerville. It's too bad I just got khorns a few weeks ago. Didn't you just get those back in the summer?
