    Just basic AVR's right now. Want to get to the point where i find the speakers that i never want to sell or upgrade and buy gear for those speakers.

  1. JBL Studio 590s

    Weren't these on sale for like $500 a pair at one point last year? I would have jumped on them had I known about them at the time. Didn't know anything about these until I came across the Z Reviews video on YouTube. Not a fan of the look with the grill off. Overall, the RF-7 II looks much more elegant and aesthetically pleasing especially with those copper drivers, but I wonder how much of brand new speaker prices is because of wood veneer and finish? The JBL looks like a theater speaker, which is fine by me but all the plastic makes it look cheap like a early 2k era speaker and I'm not a fan of those gray drivers. If the sound is similar to the RF-7 II, then some of the reviews that say the 590 are too bright makes sense as I thought the RF-7 II was too bright for me as well. For 1k, I'd rather wait and find a pair of La Scala's or even CW with room to spare for a x-over upgrade.
  2. Forte III

    @finebokeh How did you get the custom rack veneer to look like the same distressed oak? I want to get distressed oak FIII's and possibly keep my CHII and give them the distressed oak look. Yours is as close as i've seen it look! Can you please list the products used? Thanks!
  3. I love both. I found the CHII outperformed my LS with deep/low voiced male singers, but other than deep low end, the LS wins at everything else. I can't afford a really good subwoofer for the LS and have no clue what would actually match it well, otherwise i'd keep the LS. Have all for sale in order to try and fund the FIII because curiosity gets the best of me. Maybe i'll regret it, but Klipsch keep their resale value and a great thing about older models is that if you are patient enough, a great pair at a great price will come back around eventually(might require some elbow grease to pretty them up, but i love that part!). Well, except the CF-4 ver. 1. Never seen one for sale and dying to try it out.

  5. Anyone get these Khorns for $1000?

    OMG....I need to move to Florida...so many great deals. Wow.
  6. Klipsch La Scala's - $1500 (NW Houston)

    Still not a single text or email showing interest in either of my la scalas, is there something im doing wrong or is the market just that dry right now with the holidays coming up? Maybe i just need better photos since i just assume most should know what they look like just by seeing the front, there's no pretty veneer to show off...it's just such a pain in the *** to carry them out and pose them for photos in better lighting lol.. **i even lowered the price like last week by $400
  7. Let's Go Yankees.....

    STROS!!
  8. Klipsch LaScala Industrial

    From my point of view(i have 89 la scala industrial splits with k-43s and AL xover), first thing to do is swap out the AL for an AA. Were all Industrial La Scalas stock with AL networks?

  10. Klipsch La Scala's - $1500 (NW Houston)

    Yes, thanks. They are now each(pair) up on craigslist and OfferUp. The goal out there is to maximize profit of course. But for you guys, $2,300 is the goal to have enough funds for Forte III's. I know that's not necessarily "Alert" status as i'm sure most were hoping 1,500 for all 4, but I've got my mark to reach as well. I am open to trading the lesser value La Scala for a pair of CF-4 version 1's with a little bit of a cash as well. Wouldn't mind giving those a try for a while and @LeeW says I can come to demo the Forte III at his place some time, so I need to get that situated, though I respect the opinion of many on here and Cory who are really hyping the FIII. In the end, the only reason this is even up is because i'm young without my own home, so eventually 4 giant La Scalas isn't practical for someone in my position. BTW you got that right about the Texas market. Very strange market over here. You'll see Forte's for up to 1k and Chorus II for up to 1,800 lol. It's ridiculous.
  11. Klipsch La Scala's - $1500 (NW Houston)

    $1500 for the one with the new crossovers, $1100 for the AL with a bad diaphragm(Again, I have a replacement unopened that I never got around to installing). For a veteran forum member, I can do all 4 for $2,300 which places each pair at $1,150. But, veteran forum member only...don't want some guy joining up right now after reading this and PM'ing me with just a few forum posts or a 10/13/17 join date lol...
  12. La Scala LSBR on ebay $849 BIN

    Good deal. You'll be right at fair value after you spend 300+ or so on new crossovers to replace those AL's, minus the 100 or less you can sell the AL for on eBay. I love the raw birch cabinets!
  13. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Official Thread

    Massive Star Wars fan, but keeping my expectations tame as i found TFA and Rogue One to be pretty sub par and generic films.
  14. Where's Al K?

    Yeah he recently responded to my emails usually within that day so he's active if you ask him questions.
  15. Klipsch La Scala's - $1500 (NW Houston)

    I have some cheap car speaker wire connecting the new crossovers to the input bc I was too lazy to get anything else. *Oh and the terminals are basically for banana plugs only which I don't have enough of, so I had to tape the speaker cable lol b/c the hole is way too small for speaker cables. Never got around to ordering more banana plugs.. the one pair with the stock AL crossovers has the fuses in them, I also have the fuse and fuse caps for the new crossover but not being used as I cut that line since not necessary for home use.
