  1. Was this only on the chorus? I don't remember seeing that on my old forte 1 speakers, but I could be wrong.
  2. I've heard forte III speakers and currently own RF-7 II speakers. I love my RF-7II, but I believe there is much more detail in the forte III. From what I've read and heard, the forte IV sound even better. I believe the RF-7 III speakers will have better/stronger bass.

  4. I just picked up a pair of chorus speakers and noticed that the risers had extra bracing that I've never seen in Klipsch speakers before. Anyone want to weigh in? Thanks
  5. I have heard the AK6 khorns are a dealer several times with various amps. I have vintage khorns with recapped crossovers and I feel like the AK6 khorns sound significantly better than mine while using some of the same amps that I brought home for a demo. My wife keeps saying she wants to replace ours with new khorns. I'm still trying to hold out for jubes.
  6. I've never tried it, but I did ask Bob Crites about it years ago. He said not to bother, especially with the plastic horns. Not saying it won't make a difference, just passing along info I was told.

  8. I thought this was going to be about mosh pits so I figured I would post a Papa Roach's Wall of Death mosh pit. https://youtu.be/VX6_YEC7UhU
  9. Have you tried swapping speaker channels? Left speaker to right channel, right speaker to left channel? This will tell you if it's the speaker, or something higher up in the chain (source, amp, etc). If it is in the speaker, try figuring out what driver/horn it's coming from, then swapping the driver from the working speaker to see if it's the driver. I also recommend loosening all of the terminal screws on the crossover, spraying a deoxing spray across them, and then tightening all the screws. Again, start with the free or near free steps.

  13. It depends on the wood finish. Maybe around $700-1000?
  14. If you are handy, you can use something this this https://www.amazon.com/Jabinco-Insulated-Terminal-Binding-Amplifier/dp/B07ZJLB6QK/ref=sr_1_3?crid=1JBJT263DMPRD&keywords=banana+binding+posts&qid=1648671708&sprefix=banana+binding+posts%2Caps%2C65&sr=8-3 Remove the terminal cup, separate the crossover from the cup, and Install these in the old ones place. I have done similar to a pair of Chorus II speakers.
  15. W means they were made in 1981
  16. These are from 1977. The value is tough to judge without any photos since value is affected greatly by cosmetic and working condition. Roughly $400-800 depending on condition, finish, location, etc.
  17. I have klf30s and have heard them in a 2 channel setup as well as home theater. In my setup, I feel like they did better in home theater. I've heard Cornwall IV at a dealer with very good equipment driving them and they sound absolutely amazing for music.
  18. Honestly don't know since they have never been in the same room. Maybe I'll test it this week Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk

    What I Got Today!

    When I was a kid, I wanted to watch the Flintstones on tv, so I put some Flintstone toys in my dad's VCR. Oops @TomR
  20. Ok, read and inspect the pictures carefully. I figured I would ask $200 or best offer for this. I am willing to ship at buyer's expense, most likely $100+ to ship because of the weight and size of this speaker. If you are looking for the performance of the RC-7 but don't care about cosmetics, here you go. This was part of a package deal that my father bought. This speaker was kept in the garage and had significant water damage. It was stored on one side standing up. The front and rear panels started to come unglued from the damage. There was mold on the inside and outside of the cabinet pieces. I sanded everything down to remove the finish and mold, etc. I used a mold killing spray on all the pieces of the cabinet. After that dried over night, I did some finish sanding and stained the cabinet black since the cherry veneer was destroyed from the water damage. The front motorboard panel was spray painted a solid black. I used liquid nail to glue the front and rear panels back in place and let them set up in clamps for several days. There is swelled up mdf areas, nothing is perfectly straight, but the cabinet edges are sealed since I used a liberal amount of liquid nail over all the seems. The woofers have serious dents. The tweeter, ports, and crossover seems fine. The grill is missing 2 pegs and the Klipsch badge. The speaker is solid now and sounds very good to my ears. Feel free to ask me any questions.

  21. Those are kg2 speakers. In good working and cosmetic condition, they are worth roughly $100-200. If they need work, closer to $50. Where are you located? Maybe a forum member is near you and can try to help
