    SW-12 Hum and or Buzz

    @DVDMike, did you ever get the hum fixed? Was it the amp?

    Sub advice

    Im considering replacing my SW12ii too. I'm curious to hear what makes the Sw12ii less desirable than the other subwoofers listed. I'm curious to what specifics, beyond just raw brute power makes the SW12ii antiquated.

    Anyone here have a hearing aid?

    @32blownhemi, I am hearing impaired and have worn hearing aids my entire life. I currently wear a pair of Siemens, but have worn Starkey's in the past. What at kind of hearing loss do you have? Additionally, what type of hearing aid are you being recommended (cic, bte, etc...)? While my hearing loss is enough to require hearing aids, I choose to to listen to music with my hearing aids. Well, if I crank up my Chorus loud enough I can hear plenty fine, but I'm sure my neighbors can hear my music too. Let me know how I can help.

    Seeking Academy in Walnut Oil

    Hi All, I am seeking a walnut Academy to join my Chorus I speakers. I am located in DFW and willing to pay for shipping, for the right deal/speaker. Thank you all. -Alex

    Scratchy noise gone

    How would you describe the scratchy sound? Is the sound metallic in nature or does it sound like a chalkboard scratch? I ask because you mention that you only hear the sound with vocals. Like BillyBob suggested, is this sound only on speaker or both L+R? Or Chorus I + Chorus II? Do you have any other speakers to test/isolate the scratchy sound?

    Hi all, I have a SW12ii and feel like it is a decent sub. That being said, I am curious what the difference would be with a newer sub, like the rsw12 or similar. I like thr SW12ii as it matches with my extended heritage line of speakers, Chorus I and Forte II. I mainly notice my sub when I listen to shows/movies. In my normal 2 channel setup, I vaguely hear the sub. Thanks in advance.

    Scratchy noise gone

    Hi there, I have a pair of Chorus I and I also notice that the mids are more prominent. From what I've been told this is a design feature. As for the "scratchy-ness", I've experienced this too on poor source material such as low quality digital music or audio from Netflix (w/o a dac). As I understand it, the Chorus I is highly sensitive to source material and for better or worse will bring out the details. I have the titanium tweeter diaphragms, will be having my xo refurbished by Bob soon. Another issue I thought of was you having titanium midrange diaphragms too. Did you get a band pass modification to your xo too? Bob can shed some of the more technical details surrounding that better than I could.

    Forte II vs Chorus I

    I defintely want to keep the Chorus for a while, at least till I get a bigger house. JimJimbo and Matthews are Klipsch Saints, both have worked with me to secure some Lascalas, something that anyone on this forum who needs advice/direction should be really thankful if they find themselves seeking. One day I'll get some rosewood LaScalas, but for now I'm thankful and enjoying where I am. Oh oh and who designed the Chorus? Was it @Chief bonehead?

    Forte II vs Chorus I

    I know it sounds odd, but I really do feel as if the mid range is more prominent/noticeable/"there" vs the Forte IIs so far. I am currently driving my Chorus using a borrowed sep amp built by Maynard. I love the sound clarity and dynamics. As for low end, I have a SW12ii that use, and have the cut off set to the lowest level.

    NO LONGER LOOKING: KD-15 Passive for Forte II

    I agree too. I had a big gash on on of my radiators too. I ended up sending both to simply speakers. They did a great job.

    Forte II vs Chorus I

    I'm getting the impression I should a/b my Chorus and the Forte II's. I'll revisit this after the xo refurbishment. Also, point well taken... no more animated gifs.
