    New Forte 3 Review

    Thanks for the link! Didn't seem like a bad review to me, he did recommend them with reservations.
  3. Nice set up, congrats! I'd look into getting the Crites mid drivers the A55-g's with new gaskets and a pair of his CT-120 tweeters, these upgrades while not cheap are worth every penny in my book and will really add to the detail you may be missing.

    W.T.B. RSW-10D

    Those are kind of a rare bird, I've only ever seen a few for sale over the years. The original RSW-10 (non digital) come up for sale far more often and are a great sub as well. Good luck in your search, if I see one any time soon I'll let you know.

    Forte II vs RF-83 ??

    I've never owned the 63's but did audition a pair a little while back. Over the years I have owned several sets of the forte II though and know several people that still do, they really are an incredible set of speakers. I think with your Sunfire setup you'd be very pleased by what they are capable of. I really have no idea how they would compare head to head with your 83's but I've always found the Klipsch 2-way speakers to be lacking a bit in inner detail when compared side by side with the upper end 3-way Klipsches, especially after they've been updated with Crites parts. I cannot stress enough the value of doing your own comparison and as long as you don't drastically over pay you should be able to get your money back out of them if they turn out to be not for you. Good luck and keep us posted!

    Grab them and try them out, you'll never know for sure unless you live with them for awhile then either start a collection like most of us here or just sell the ones you like least.

    Your first?

    My late uncle Bob picked up a full Carver rack system with a pair of forte II's when I was 14 or 15? My recently departed aunt picked up a pair of Chorus 1's almost immediately after with a very similar Carver system she liked his so much. I landed my first Klipsch forte II's a few years later when I was 17.
  9. Hey nice to see you here Carlos! I know two people with that same Yamaha and Sunfire amps and both are very happy with the combo. One has the Sunfire Cinema Ribbon speakers and the other some older JBL horn speakers, hope this helps. Jesse

  12. These are not advertised as such so who knows where the prices will end up. https://www.ebay.com/itm/KLIPSCH-K-55-V-Driver-Pair-ALNICO-Klipschorn-Belle-Klipsch-LaScala-Cornwall/401546173599?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pair-of-Klipsch-K-700-Horns-K-55-V-Drivers-out-of-Heresy-Speakers-GREAT-SOUND/202337721906?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

    CL, HeresyIII Black, Seattle, $320

    Sometimes if you call a seller out for obviously being a flipper and just seeing the ad for the same speakers for a lot less they will drop the price pretty radically as long as they make a few bucks for their trouble, maybe offer him $550? I know its getting a lot harder to find deals in the Seattle area any more, too many are fishing these days it seems.

    KI-396 question / confusion

    You can see the same thing on my KI-215 input cup, I added a single set of binding posts, I should point out that there was no internal crossover in these subs though.

    KI-396 question / confusion

    I can't say for sure on those speakers but some of the older pro models had dual inputs for the purpose of daisy chaining multiple speakers together so both inputs are wired together inside and do the same thing, they are not meant for bi-amping.
