  1. Its a pair of 1500 dollar LaScalas foe sale in FB market place on the Klipsch forum on FB. Since your a member here you can join Steven and Cory's Klipsch site there. Also order from Cory who is a dealer. You can also call Cory he is a Klipsch dealer with pretty good buys. metropolislakeoutfitters

  3. Funny how people always say ...when I put them side by side Klipsch wins..... If you think KGs are good wait till you hear LaScalas. But before you buy check to make sure all drivers working and if crossover has been updated. You could sell your current speakers and ad some funds and call Cory get New Forte's I bet. He has some B stock speakers for low prices now. He even has a pair of 70th anniversary KHorns for cheap. If buying new call Cory.

    What to do with this?

    I used rustoleom liquid enamel inside and out on them. Used a brush was messy but it smooths out. I sanded the seams really good I also used an O-ring on the mid driver it doesn't stick out into horn path. I used a dowel rod with emery cloth to get down in the throat to smooth it out. The enamel also deadens the horn quite a bit if you coat the outside also.

    I would just put type As in them keep it simple. AA only have diodes for tweets so not really needed. What you plan to do with the cabinets ?? Veneer...If you put screws in the sides lower and top then veneer outside it will stop the side flex.

Both weigh the same according to spec. sheet. https://f072605def1c9a5ef179-a0bc3fbf1884fc0965506ae2b946e1cd.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.com/product-specsheets/La-Scala-2018-Spec-Sheet-v01-1.pdf newest one weighs 201lbs. https://f072605def1c9a5ef179-a0bc3fbf1884fc0965506ae2b946e1cd.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.com/product-specsheets/Klipschorn-AK6-Spec-Sheet-v01.pdf newest K horn weighs 220lbs So depends on which one your buying. Call Cory he could probably tell you how much each section weighs and give you a good price on any of them. I wonder if there is going to be 2 models of each because those newest ones are crazy prices. I bet they dont sell many of the newest ones but that may be their plan. I dont know anyone who can afford the current ones let alone the newer ones. No price on the newer LaScala.

    Your room is plenty big to move Forte out from wall. If you live in apartment you will never be able to turn up Scalas....My son has RB35s in a 4 plex and they all complained so he just un hooked them.

    It will be hard if you have to go around a corner. Why not get Forte III ?? If your buying new call Cory first for sure. 38.5h, 24.25w, 25.25d, 176 lbs, could not find weight of each section.

    1985 Cornwall issue

    I agree its the caps ….terminal strip...or bad tweeter. You can get new caps from Bob Crites or parts express easy to do. My bet is its just bad connection but caps need to be replaced anyway.
  11. I tried searching for Grossbjorn could not find it. Could you post link ??

    https://www.klipsch.com/products/ki-362 Call Cory he might know about them.
  13. You may want to contact Cory on Jubs or other theater type speakers. look up the 396 we heard it at the Pilgramage.
  14. Where you located ? Call Cory before you buy anything. Stereo shops are few and far between. Find a forum member and make a trip. At least your in the right forum for advice.
