    The joys of outdoor La Scala's

    I sold 2 pairs of LSi that i put my labor into fixing up after an amazing deal, after i sold, a single for center channel popped up near me which i never see. Don't get me wrong, i'm happy and absolutely love my Chorus II and i came across an awesome deal for Chorus I and a KLF-C7 together and Heresy II's, but i miss the sound of the La Scalas, especially that k43 pro woofer. The lower midrange was so sweet. The bottleneck build of the k400 did wear me out at loud volumes though, but i miss the sound even for low to mid level listening which is 90% of my listening anyway. "I am an old man. Filled with regret. Waiting to die without my La Scalas."

    First time i ever heard La Scalas was outdoors in a driveway and i couldn't believe the sound. I walked down across the street and it was just so effortless. I want La Scalas back One day..

    Speaking of Jazz. I love Diana Krall type of Jazz, but can't get into Miles Davis type of Jazz. Any Jazz recommendations I could be into? Jazz seems to be a genre with tons of high quality recordings/SACD's i'd love to try out.

    I got mine based on set12 on another audio forum talking them up big but he uses very premium parts for his crossovers. Forte II is the one that measures best and is talked up as the most balanced but I heard Chorus II next to them and I fell in love and came home with Chorus IIs. I’d imagine any heritage and extending heritage Klipsch sounds amazing with $1500+ worth of premium crossover parts will sound amazing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Never heard of them being built as PA speakers. Always thought it was just a center for KHorns Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Well it, like the belle and Cornwall and heresy were made to serve as center speakers between two far spread out Khorns to fill in the middle or whatever audiophile speak you use to explain that Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I usually see through deans work for people that he uses different brand caps for mids or tweeter mostly due to most people wanting cheaper brands for the tweeters and more expensive for the mids. I don’t know if for me it would be important to have the same brand. I know my ear isn’t that critical enough to hear it. Not sure if I’d even hear the difference between Crites sonicaps or some other higher cost/reputable cap. I know I heard Deans crossovers in khorns and La scalas versus my stock la scalas and I was blown away by the difference. It was like a veil was removed. Like the singer had a hand over their mouth with the stock and with deans, that hand was removed from the mouth and everything was so clear and you could place every instrument. I was extremely impressed...but then I got alk clones with cheaper Dayton audio and audyn caps and I wasn’t so impressed compared to that same stock al-3 which I know is typically viewed as the worst crossover Klipsch ever made Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What about that gigantic Klipsch pro horn loaded sub for the la scalas? Seems like a match made in heaven. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So Crites Chorus crossover would be same result for the bass? I certainly can’t afford some massive north creek 8awg air core inductors. Perhaps that’s what really helps bass. So most important thing really is just high quality caps for the mids and second most important thing is caps for the tweeters? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I did regret selling both and have been craving a pair again. I love the K43 pro woofer. Had a very beefy lower midrange. My issue might not have been the k400 but the alk crossovers. Maybe A or AAs with high quality caps for the mids would help. Though I did read others having the issue with the k400 and its bottleneck type of build. I remember DeanG saying the A55G solved that issue with the K400. I think he later said new diaphragms in the K55 brought them to the same level of the A55G which would make things a lot cheaper.

    Definitely have planned to swap to give it some demoing! Hopefully I have time this weekend! These things are fun to do! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’ve read some people mention fabric spray paint which is light enough to not alter the weight but I’d be too scared to try it and I’m not sure if that was only for the passive radiators or works on all woofer cones. The 2s are precious to me. I kept them over 2 pairs of la scalas, but size was a factor(and the k400 at loud volumes hurt my ears). Overall the larger tractrix mid horn is much smoother and airy and the passive radiator with 2.5oz added really digs deep. Right now I’ve got titanium diaphragms for the tweeter and mids. After a long time of reading negative reviews of the Ti mid diaphragm and initially being too loud, they’ve broken in and smoothed out and I’m really enjoying the crystal clear sound. Still though, it’s very unforgiving to bad recordings and a lot of music can just sound bad with Ti diaphragms. The phenolics lacked this kind of detail but had a warmth I kind of miss. Felt more emotionally involved with the phenolics and too clinical with the Ti diaphragms if that makes sense. The Chorus I right now have only been used for movie/tv duty. With what little music I’ve listened on them, they actually sound a lot better than I expected. I owned Forte Is before and thought the exponential horn was too forward and a bit harsh compared to the larger tractrix Chorus II horn- got rid of them pretty quick but these Chorus I came up for a good deal and they sound sweet in a large room. I’ve been playing with position-deep in corner, out and toed in or out and facing forward with no toe in- I think I like no toe in best for soundstage and not having that exponential horn directly firing at your ears which could be harsh. The bass is there but you don’t feel it in your chest like with the Chorus II but it’s a very large open living room so I think even the Chorus II would need a sub in such a room. Apparently you can add 7” tube ports to dig as deep as the Chorus II but i haven’t gotten to it yet. I can imagine with the tube port mod and refreshed caps, the Chorus I can get close to the IIs but the larger horn always wins. Might ultimately put the Ti mids into the Chorus I for movies and get new Crites phenolics for my Chorus II for music. I wonder how close the Chorus I modded with Ti diaphragms and new caps and tube port mod can sound compared to the Cornwall III? I’ve read many reviews where the Chorus line had more similarities to the Cornwall line than dissimilarities so using the Cornwall IIIs own Ti diaphragms might bring it pretty close?

    Maybe mine is just faded a lot which is a shame bc I wish it were dark like in the ad or on my Chorus II. It’s one of the reasons I’ve been too lazy in restoring the finish by stripping the veneer and new black paint on the front motorboard and horns and hardware.

    No that’s correct, I have both the 1s and the 2s but I was asking specifically about the woofer. It looks exactly like the woofer in my Chorus II. My Chorus I have a grey woofer as seen in this photo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sorry to get off topic, but those woofers look like the same ones in my Chorus II. MyChorus I have very old grey looking woofers. Did they use different woofers in the later years of the Chorus line or are those Chorus II woofers in a Chorus I cabinet and are they interchangeable? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
