    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?

    @Delicious2 do you have any photos of how the K402 looks on top of the KHorn LF?

    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

    Wow thanks for the detailed response. I need to learn more but already seeming to push me toward just preparing one day for jubes Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Khorn 2 way with K510?

    Has anyone done active 2 way khorns with k510s? Do they work well together? I recall Roy saying the la scala dog house is closer in design to the jubilee LF than the Khorn. just got done demoing @Born2RockUs Jubilees(LCR Jubes with faital pro drives and Danley sub) for the first time and I’m blown away. Can’t afford to go Jubes with K402 so looking at different options. Could potentially go Jubilee with K510 if I sold most of my speakers including the Khorns but wondering if the Klipschorns LF with K510 would sound good since I wouldn’t have a sub and the low end of the khorn sounds great in corners to me.
  7. You also have a lot of raised grain. You should remove the speaker components, and use some mineral spirits to clean the cabinet and raise the grain and then sand them down before using the minwax weathered oak and classic gray stain mix I’m personally interested bc my Douglas Fir Klipschorns need to be restored and I think veneering such a large cabinet is too big of a move for my first veneer work so I was thinking of repairing damaged veneer/filling in and then sanding down and using the weathered oak and classic grey stain to create a distressed oak look and get lambswool grill fabric. A project for when the weather gets warmer Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I like the grey riser better but I think you should have and still can do the method that finebokeh used. “I used Minwax wood finish penetrating stain, a coat of Weathered Oak 270 followed by a coat of Classic Gray 271. Given a second chance I would experiment by mixing the two stains together in different proportions rather than using two separate applications. It is finished with Polycrylic clear satin.” https://community.klipsch.com/uploads/monthly_2017_10/klipsch1.jpg.7f3c6cf1b18c4627f5f30cb4a9df3698.jpg Should be cheap and easy to do right over what you’ve currently done and it looks spot on to the distressed oak forte III Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How much toe-in do you use

    My Khorns aim directly at me with zero fatigue(Dean dialed the mid's back on the xover), my past La Scalas made my ears feel like they were bleeding when facing directly at me so i faced them straight with no toe in and i liked them. My Chorus II were always toed in slightly to the back of me. I never stopped tinkering with the Chorus and i continue to tinker with them in the open floor plan living room for HT(and some times music). Very slight toe in right now. Still nothing sounds good because the room just doesn't work for audio. I can only get it acceptable when i bring out the speakers far into the room like the cardas rule and face forward with no toe in and use 2 subs with it.

    Forte III single - $399

    Thanks dude! I’m happy. For $268.05 + profit from selling the KLF-C7 I don’t need anymore. It’s a hell of a deal. It’ll be mostly out of sight aesthetically anyway, but very happy. I was hyping myself for a Chorus III project but nah. I just don’t have it in me to do mods especially involving wood working to make the Chorus II mid horn cut out smaller to fit the Forte III horn.

    Forte III single - $399

    It’ll need to be veneered all over again in the future along with the Chorus II to match but I’m just going to enjoy for now. All that matters is it’s structurally sound for now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Forte III single - $399

    Everything sealed up. Gaps filled. The major damage was just to difficult for a noob like me to fix. The worst front right corner and the front left corner. Just couldn’t be fixed well enough but it’s fine for now. Up close you can see the timber mate walnut wood filler I used, but it’s whatever. That worst right corner, I had no choice but to cut out the broken veneer and flatten out the warped mdf and apply a piece of veneer but the damn thing chipped up. I tried to match the streak of the grain as best I could. I don’t know how to get the dark lines from the oil filled in. More wood filler? Overall it’s fine. It’s going up high on an entertainment center horizontally. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
