  1. My experience, with the amount of time, breaking in my Forte II's upgrade of new Titanium Tweeters & Mids. Wasn't very long. I noticed the improvement immediately & they seemed to continue to improve. I can't demonstrate the improvement as I did not use any tools to measure the performance. My improvement is based on mine & my wife's listening experience. We both felt that the sound became even more lifelike and warmer. Both of us can't truly say when the sound reached its full potential. As the experience was very gradual, and best described as reaching the point of warmth, that it was. Hope our experience is helpful. Do reccomend that you play your favorites daily for a week or two. Serves two purposes, you get to enjoy your collection, plus note change. Lastly will utilize your system, so it can break itself in. Enjoy yourself, Jeff Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  2. Bottom line, upgraded our Forte II's crossovers with Bob Crities solution. The benefits exceed all expectations. Found that the install was a piece of cake, due to the step by step instructions provided by Bob. At the same time I upgraded the tweeters with Titaniums. Plus upgraded the Mid's with Titanium as well (at the time, Bob directed me to purchase, from Klipsch Parts department). A sincere thank you to Moray James, (met via Klipsch Forum). I benefited from his knowledge and help. He was avaiable via Forum, text or Phone. Always with help & advice. He was a tremendous benefit to me.
  3. at the time teens, who thought listening to their music through Apple products was the preferred option. They heard the difference quickly and began using our system whenever they could. At the time , it helped my wife and I maintain communication with our girls.
  4. My results from upgrading my Forte II's, 4/5 years ago. We're incredible, everyone in my family noticed the difference quickly. I include my daughters who were
  5. I have the Heresy III, they have in the room realness, clear, concise and very life like. Can hear backup instruments, plus fingers strumming the guitar. Compliments my Forte II's. Note, my Forte's had been upgraded with Bob Crities crossovers and Titanium Tweeters & Mids. What you describe is not normal. Anyone nearby that can assist you? Where are you located?
  6. Not sure what your comparing prices to. As you don't say which LaScala you have. I believe much depends on how the speakers are marketed. Example, condition of speakers, complete set of pictures and where your advertising them. Especially when you compare to "New" prices. My own experience, I bought a pair of Klipsch's, pampered by keeping clean as well as oiling the wood finish. Paid in 1990 $1,000; today I have had offers in the $1,000 range for 27 year old speakers. Note, have seen folks offer for sale speakers covered with dust in pictures. Comment by seller, gorgeous speakers, need to be cleaned and polished, sound awesome. Asking Max price. Buyers assume an issue, and will offer less $, as they believe that they are not pristine. Even though just dusty. Hope I help you, which was my intention. Best of luck. Jeff
