    Klipsch Forte III Walnut (single) Houston, Tx

    Thanks Kalifornian I also have a pair of Chorus II I’m selling. They’ve got ti tweeters and I currently have ti mids in them but have the stock as well. They’re definitely not lookers. But in this Texas market I’m not looking to give them away due to looks as I paid more than I’d be willing to sell them for in worse shape plus ti tweeters($60) and ti mids($175 iirc). So if anyone wants a front stage of Chorus II and Forte III center- here’s your opportunity. Also will list a pair of 76 raw fir KHorns with AAs, round alinco k77s and K55v Separate list- pair of Dean made AAs using Audiocap PPT thetas- mids dialed back -6db I’ll list the chorus II and khorns and Dean AAs when I get a chance Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. This Forte III arrived damaged. Repairs done myself. Titebond II on motorboard, siliconed inside edges. Major veneer damage at top corners were replaced with walnut veneer cut outs-best I could do. Another one on the left top side. Other veneer damage was just filled with walnut filler as I didn’t want to mess with 2 corners of the edgeband and side or top veneer. Riser has crack in the veneer at the rear but barely noticeable. Doesn’t have the copper jumpers, but wire is better anyway. Sounds perfect. Has paper work and original box. $600 local pickup Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Heresy III Raw $800

    Yes I got a steal for the forte III in reality. Repairs weren’t a big deal for me. Titebond and clamp all the loose cabinet splits. Sealed the inside edges to ensure no air leaks. Walnut veneer cut outs for badly damaged veneer except where you see in the front top and right side near the edge band where I didn’t want to mess with it, so I used walnut colored wood filler as best I could. The risers were split open but luckily clean breaks so glue and clamp actually put them back together nicely. Only one clear break point where you can really see the wood filler and it’s on the back of the riser that can’t be seen. Overall I was happy with the repairs and I can easily veneer the entire thing again custom if I choose to. 1k for HIIIs would be nice but when approaching that price, I’d rather just get another Forte III to make a pair. It’s not completely set in stone that I have to sell everything. It all depends on if I have to move to a small apartment or not. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Heresy III Raw $800

    Oh yeah. My single forte III arrived with split open cabinet and broken riser and dents etc. I repaired it myself but it’s still obvious there was damage that’s why I couldn’t get proper value for it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Heresy III Raw $800

    I want Heresy IIIs I’ve got to sell off my Chorus II and KHorns but I was looking at HIIIs to keep my itch satisfied. Still. Probably can’t do 1k so I’d have to settle for used HIIs. Do they still do the II to III upgrade package? Maybe I can trade my single Forte III for a pair of heresy IIs Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I'm so sorry to hear that Dean

    Pro vs Heritage

    Well that’s just my inexperienced thought. Maybe it’s easier than I imagine to veneer rounded edges/corners? Maybe special veneer I don’t know about that doesn’t break when bent? I really don’t know. Point me in the right direction if you know- then maybe I’ll consider industrial la scala splits again and veneer them in beautiful walnut Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pro vs Heritage

    Pro is expensive. It seems like there’s this misconception that bc they’re pro and don’t focus on aesthetics for the home with costly wood veneer- that they’re cheap or at least similar in cost to the heritage and reference lines. They seem to be much more costly and then add the fact that there’s not too many people who can get away with using them in a living room and they’re not friendly toward DIY guys who would like to veneer the cabinets themselves due to all the rounded/beveled edges etc and odd shapes. I can also see the specs turning some off in terms of low end. I personally wanted to go this route and was shocked at the price I was told for the Ki-396-II or the 362-II I was interested in Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Khorn 2 way with K510?

    I got my Klipschorns for $700 back around September that’s why I’m looking at options. Thanks for the info! Craig told me how you helped him with his set up. It sounds amazing! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
