    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. Sounds like a good deal. I would have jumped on that a few months ago bc I wanted RC-7 for surrounds and use a closer match in extended heritage up front with my Chorus II, but I'm happy with my 1 RC-7 center and i'm looking into either upgrades for my Chorus II or getting Quartets for surrounds. Good luck with your sale!
  2. Yeah I get that, but I mean most seem to say they are too harsh even after have the bandpass, but the people who like them really seem to love them. Oh well. Only way i'll ever know is if I try it myself.
  3. So why are people so against titanium mid diaphragms in the Forte I/II, Chorus I/II, Quartets?
  4. Are these going to use titanium diaphragms for the mids and tweeters? Sorry if it has already been answered a billion times.
  5. bob, I've had them replaced a few months now and to my ears they sound great other than maybe a bit of harshness at loud levels, but that's not an issue with the woofers. I've never heard the original stock RC-7 to compare as I received it with a bad woofer which was my reason for replacing both. They assured me that they tested for use in the RC-7 and I trusted their word. I also think they look aesthetically much better and could match any of the newer line of Klipsch speakers including the new RF-7 III with the black front baffle. I'm sorry, but I have sold the working original woofer. The site where I ordered it from has 1 in stock, and more on the way this month. You can send them a message on facebook and they are pretty good at speedy responses. * They make a note "You may need new slip-on connectors to use in these models. You can request that we send slip-on connectors in the notes section of your order if using for one of these alternate models." I guess I was the first to try it because I brought it to their attention that the original slip on connecter from the RC-7 wires were too small, so do ask them for the proper ones and then you will have to crimp them on yourself. http://reconingspeakers.com/product/klipsch-1011974-rf-82-mkii-woofer/
  6. This is the good one which is in excellent condition: This is from the one with damage to the cabinet and grill:
  7. nevermind. I'll use Photobucket. One moment please
  8. I was able to upload the damage but it won't let me upload more photos bc of size
  9. Houston, Tx. Local pick up only. These will only be up as long as another pair of speakers are out there that I want, but need a bit of cash for. If those sell, I'm taking these off the market. 1 of the speakers has taken a tumble and has slight damage, all drivers working. Original boxes. Uploading photos right now...
  10. Man, I want some RF-7 II's. I'd sell my Chorus II for some RF-7 II's. I just love the aesthetics and i'm sure they sound amazing(actually never even listened to them) and my entire music library is digital so maybe a better match for me than Chorus II? Maybe I won't day dream as much if I upgrade the crossovers in the Chorus II's? Congrats on your purchase!
  11. I tried Audyssey on, off, flat and whichever that other option is and I feel each one has a flaw that I don't like. I usually just go pure direct mode, but I only have a JBL ES250P sub and it just doesn't sound good with my Chorus II for music(I've tried it crossed over at 80, 60 and 40hz). Prefer the tight natural bass of the Chorus II on their own. I'm new to all of this so I am still contemplating getting smaller bookshelf speakers to use as L/R in movies with the Marantz SR7007 and just use the Chorus II as stereo with some vintage equipment. But, like is said, i'm new to all of this and I don't know how much of a hassle it is to own and have to service vintage stereos or replace tubes if I went the tube route.
  12. So this is just the bin and crossovers? No horns and drivers? That's a steal? Crap. How much are Jubilees? For some reason I always figured they were around the same as older K-Horns that go for around 1800 to 2500. Never seen em, never heard em. Ignorance is bliss.
  13. The matte black with multicolored grill that looks beveled was maybe an early photoshop using the Forte II and the one from CES is the actual grill which is flush? That's my guess anyway...
  14. Are those grills beveled like the original or are they flat and flush? Looks flush in some and beveled in others. An option?
  15. the grills are really thick material. My Fortes weren't like that at all and the badges on both have odd discoloration, any idea how to fix that?
