  1. Hi there all! I’m selling my Chorus I speakers to make room for a new set of Klipsch speakers. The only modifications I performed is the titanium diaphragms in the tweeter. I still have the original phenolic is you want them instead. You all know what these speakers are capable of. If you have any questions, I am happy to answer them. And if you live in Texas outside of DFW, I’d be willing to bring them to you (Austin/Houston/San Antonio) for a reasonable cost (if my schedule allows) or meeting you half way.
  2. Hi guys, A buddy of mine got a hold of some Klipsch speakers that are unlike any I’ve ever seen. I’ve attached some pics of the insides. Can you guys/gals help me identify this speaker?
  3. @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.
  5. @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.
  6. Thanks for posting the pics.
  7. Thanks @Thaddeus Smith, this is exactly what we were talking about. Thanks for the heads up. Hi @Schu, I'm sending you a PM.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. Hey guys, I recently got a pair of "mint-ish" walnut Chorus I and have installed the titanium tweeter diaphragms and about to have my xo refurbished by Bob. The Chorus are replacing my good looking walnut Forte IIs that also have the titanium tweeter diaphragms and the xo that have been refurbished by Bob. My question/conundrum is this: Should I sell the Forte IIs or keep them a while? I am really torn as to if should sell my Forte IIs. One the one hand, from what I understand and read, a great pair of walnut Forte IIs are somewhat of a rare thing. On the other hand, my Forte IIs are just taking up space in my living room, not connected. I am not in need of the cash value of the Forte IIs, so I am not in a hurry or pinch to sell them. I wonder if I am being short sighted in considering selling the Fortes IIs? Another question I considered, is the Chorus I a step up or above the Forte IIs? In my ear, the Chorus has a better mid-range than the Fortes II, and this is before my Chorus has their xo refurbished by Bob. I can only imagine how much better the sound will improve once the xo are refurbished. Is there any other points I'm not thinking of that perhaps I should consider before making a decision? Thanks in advance guys.
  17. Hey there, I know the frustration of a tear on the passive radiator. When I got my fortes II's there was a tear one one too. I ended up sending both passive radiators to Simply Speakers and they did an awesome job. I would gladly recommend them. Even though only one passive radiator was damagaed, I sent both in to ensure that they were both tuned the same back to OEM specs. Thats my 2 cents, hope it helps.
  18. Thank you for your feedback KHarp, I appreciate it. It is neither my intent nor desire to treat these (works of art) as real estate, but rather I am thinking it is time for me to consider migrating towards a good tube amp, and I am trying to forecast what budget I might have available towards that endeavor. And if I can recoup my costs, then that's a plus. :-) Again, thanks for your feedback.
  19. I plumb forgot about the pics for the SW-12ii, i'll take a couple and post tomorrow.
  20. Hi fellow Klipsch Jedi, I recently acquired some Chorus I's and wanted to get some advise/guidance and positioning. Right now I have them just about flush in the corners of my 11 foot wide room. The only thing that prevents them from being completely flush is that I have them slightly toed in towards the couch. I've read quite a few threads and from what I gather is that there are 2 primary schools of thought; away from the walls about 12 to 14 inches (all around) or close to the corners as possible with the speaker toed in. I have read that some folks like to toe in the speaker sharp enough that the sound from L & R speakers meet in front of the listener by about a foot or so. So I come to my fellow Klipsch Jedi for guidance. Thanks in advance... ps. Help me Obi-Wan JimJimbo!
  21. As promised listed below are my Fortes II. I also forgot to mention that I had the passive radiators reconed/repaired by Simply Speakers. Again, not sure that I am selling them, all I am trying to do is get an idea of what is a reasonable price for them. I have spent a bit of money to bring these Fortes where they are and I curious if I am could recoup my costs.
