  1. same as all other klipsch of this era, very thin but can be lightly sanded to freshen up or remove light staings & scratches. sometimes you can see how thick it is on the back endge of the cabinet where the veneer ends.
  2. Cherry, look like v2 or v3. https://www.ebay.com/itm/284275494088?mkevt=1&mkpid=0&emsid=e11021.m43.l1120&mkcid=7&ch=osgood&euid=9c31a79614504dafb5f54699285129be&bu=43521485800&ut=RU&exe=98458&ext=232176&logid=nqt%3DAAAAAQAAAAAACgAAAAAEAAIAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAAAgAAEAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQAAAAAAAAAAAACAAAAgAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQA**%26nqc%3DAAAAAQAAAAAACgAAAAAEAAIAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAAAgAAEAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQAAAAAAAAAAAACAAAAgAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQA**%26mdbreftime%3D1619703630967%26es%3D0%26ec%3D1&osub=-1~1&crd=20210429064805&segname=11021&sojTags=ch%3Dch%2Cbu%3Dbu%2Cut%3Dut%2Cnqt%3Dnqt%2Cnqc%3Dnqc%2Cmdbreftime%3Dmdbreftime%2Ces%3Des%2Cec%3Dec%2Cexe%3Dexe%2Cext%3Dext%2Cexe%3Dexe%2Cext%3Dext%2Cosub%3Dosub%2Ccrd%3Dcrd%2Csegname%3Dsegname%2Cchnl%3Dmkcid
  3. they were on a group called "vintage klipsch fans" however i just tried to find the post & its been deleted. maybe they sold already or the person didnt like the comments about mouse poop??
  4. $850 is a good realistic price. & they have crites x-overs..... ive tried tape & vacuums on pushed in dust caps many times & when they are that far dented & creased tape or a vac usually doesnt pull them out, scotch tape doesnt stick too well to these caps & its very diffcult to get a vac to seal around a 4" dust cap to allow enough suction to pull them out... but they make almost identical dust caps that can easily be replaced or just glued over the existing cap.
  5. they are 1990, oak with brown grilles. pics were posted on a klipsch facebook group & they must have already determined the price, listed for $4500
  6. price will depend on the condition, wood veneer finish, year they were made & location but since you havent provided any of that info or pics, a ballpark estimate for average condition 1980s-mid 1990s K-horns would be $2500-3000. if in mint condition & more desirable finish like walnut they could be closer to $4000-4500. run of the mill oak with nics & scratches & stains etc would be on the lower side or less of the first estimate. thats based on what ive seen in my area & what ive sold 2 pair of K-horns for recently. i saw this weekend you posted pics on one of the facebook klipsch groups with a price of $4500, based on the pics showing oak finish with brown grilles, scratches, possibly veneer issues & stains & mice poop, i think that may be a little high but you are free to ask what you want & im sure someone will make an offer you both can agree on... randy said hes interested without even seeing them! best of luck with the sale.
  7. agree with the above, swap L&R speakers. very unlikely the crossover would be intermittent like that, sounds like its a wiring issue or something with the receiver/amp or source component.
  8. please read the 2nd question in my post & answer it with some kind of evidence to back up your claim... until then youre just being a fanboy repeating what you read with zero testing or proof. im not knocking jem caps but claiming they are the "best" when youve never even compared them to other mid range to upper end caps is pure----- 10/34000
  9. "the best sound"? again, how do you know this?? have you compared any or all of the options out there compared to stock mylar klipsch caps??? & even if you have done A/B blind tests of them all its just your subjective opinion... please stop telling everyone what you THINK is best.
  10. that is correct, im trying to get confirmation regarding the forte 3 passive being used in the chorus 2... it was stated more than once in the recent past that its acceptable to use the F3 in a CH2...
  11. so your previous statement that the forte 3 passive will work for the chorus 2 is now wrong? "You don't need the parameters. All you need is me saying that the drone in the III will work in the ii. That's all. " didnt a bunch of people buy the forte 3 passives for their chorus 2 based on this info? & is the KD16 for the chorus 2 available for sale from klipsch? as of the comment in 2018 the member said he was told by klipsch the KD16 is not available & they referred him to simply speakers. just trying to clarify this for the OP & future members that may read that thread or the others saying the forte 3 passive is correct for chorus2.
  12. didn't @Chief bonehead & others recently confirm the forte3 passive is the same spec as & will work for the chorus2? can you explain how they are "very different specs"?
  13. well if the new cornwall4's are $6k... then originals must be worth $4k? isnt that how it works???
  14. hi. the forte 3 will work as mentioned in previous threads on here but they are cosmetically different & i think some have said they require minor modification to the opening to fit right, possibly a little too tight? you can also have your passives reconed from simply speakers, they offer a recone kit with the pleated fiber surrounds so they will look correct for chorus 2, you can buy just the kit & do it yourself or ship to them to be installed. https://www.simplyspeakers.com/Klipsch_bymfg_16-0-1.html
