  1. That doesn't look too bad at all, it's just the wood grains are too big and open. The oak Klipsch uses these days has a more aesthetically pleasing grain pattern now. You should look into purchasing some white or red oak with tighter grain patterns and veneer the speaker and start from scratch with the distressed oak appearance. Oak veneer isn't that costly either.
  2. Just saw the 2nd page of the spec sheet you mentioned. Interesting. Hadn't seen that before!
  3. Is the top hat enclosed? You mean like the 60th anniversaries? If that's your question, it doesn't appear to be so. Only the LF bin is enclosed it seems
  4. Interesting. Are those version 3? Gotta be verrry careful with shipping too if anyone is considering them because any damage to them with no parts replacements would be a nightmare. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. @wvu80 Dave, got any help on the serials/version, price average?
  6. I honestly have no clue what they go for. Can’t even get that much for my KHorns so I paused when I saw the price but also wasn’t surprised since they’re so rare and I never really see them listed to judge. Never heard them either Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Raw cherry! Gorgeous! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Photo is from 2004. Maybe they’ve put an exotic veneer on all of them by now? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thank you for that. So it’s the tweeter that’s hot? That thread about making it two way is interesting as I was just thinking the other day about putting the k70 with horn in my KLF-10s when I too discovered one of the pro surrounds uses the k70g driver as a 2 way out to 19khz. While I don’t have the skill to solder and experiment in making the forte III a 2 way, I can try and swap in my Chorus II tweeter with Ti or phenolic and see if it’s not as hot. For now I’ll eq the tweeter a few dB down Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. So I’ve finally got my single Forte III set up as a center channel and just as the first time i tried listening to it in mono, there’s a peak that my ears are really sensitive too. Makes my ears instantly raise every time. I’ve seen someone else mention this issue and I wonder if there’s anyone who has a freq graph of the forte III so I can apply a few db decrease eq to that peak. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Just give klipsch parts department a call and ask them what CD is used with the KPT-GRAND-HF-N tweeter on the 3 way jubilee. If you order a pair of k510's from Corey, i'm sure he will know which cd's come with the 3 way jube as well, maybe it's just another k69(?)
  12. You already have one on your jubescala Craig. K510 little horn that could is used as the tweeter in a 3 way jube but I don’t know what compression driver is used Pro site calls it a KPT-GRAND-HF-N Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’m totally missing my Dean networks. Never realized how rough the stock caps sounded until I went back to the 76 AAs. An in my face noisy and fatiguing sound. Crackling K77s too now, though it could be the amp. The blacker background is exactly what I got with the ppt theta build. Can’t imagine how lovely the Jupiter’s sound as well as those others.

  14. Yeah I know about those but wuzzers Heresy IIIs are silver and black like my stock pie badges from 76. Didn’t know they were remaking and placing them on new speakers as I’ve only seen the jubilee pie badge and the classic cursive badges. Haven’t seen any new Cornwall’s, fortes, la scalas, khorns or heresys offered with those black and silver pie badges. So I was wondering if it’s actually an option not many know about and no ones thought to call in and ask which I should do! @wuzzzer how did you get those black and silver pie badges? Did you request them? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. The guy that said it was correct from his 68s, my 76s also have the same badge and now wuzzers new HEresy IIIs somehow have that same silver badge with both sides of the V. Looks like the same exact silver and black badge but new on Heresy IIIs which I’ve never seen. Would love to know if Klipsch is selling these again. EDIT: just looked at wuzzzer’s HIIIs and his have only half of the V cut out like you mentioned. I have seen others like mine and the others above with both cut out though. Either way, I’d like a pair of those new silver pie badges! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. It was shipping damaged and I got it for a steal. Repaired the cabinet myself. Everything sealed up tight and working great. I originally thought it’d be a perfect center channel with my Chorus II but I can’t figure out a way to make it work since my entertainment center is too big and I’d have to place it up really high horizontally. Don’t really want to do that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Does klipsch sell those pie badges? I need some new ones on my KHorns Awesome HIII’s! I want a pair! But at the price I might as well just get a single Forte III to make a pair with my single since I can’t sell it by itself. Funny how this thing goes. Need money. Put it up for sale. Can’t sell. So spend money to make a pair. Only logical. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. What about KHorns made from Fir? Mine are Fir decorators from 76. Looks like marine grade fir, but not designated on the sticker. I believe FIR khorns are pretty rare. Speaking of mid 70s KHorns. Is it worth getting new diaphragms installed into the K55V at this point? I mean, they sound fine, but would there be an improvement in clarity with new diaphragms? I'm aware of getting fresh caps, as i already had Dean made AA's using film and foil caps, but i had to sell them due to cash constraints and now i can really tell the difference. My stock AA's are pretty fatiguing and harsh and Deans AA's were much quieter as far as background noise. Lots of hssss and shhhh background noise on these 76 AA's.
  19. my top rattles quite a bit. I've got decorators not unlike modern Khorns where the top just sits on the LF, but i need isolation pads or feet. Do they need to be specifically "isolation" pads/feet, or any furniture pad/rubber feet will do?
  20. Would love to know more too. Been dreaming about Cornwall IIIs lately but mostly for the new aesthetic whereas my Chorus II are old and ugly looking and I hate the beveled grill frame and riser. I suppose I could just build new risers and grill frames more like the forte III with straight edges since I LOVE the sound of the Chorus IIs and I still have the old stock cheap crossovers and never really driven them with real power Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Mine is the round alinco K77 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. That's nice! What tweeter is that and will it work with an AA? I've seen photos of this time aligned tweeter being mentioned, but i've never seen any placed vertically as @moray james mentioned. I have however seen custom mid horn options with built in tweeter cutout placed vertically and iirc i've seen the old original KHorns have the tweeter mounted inside the mid horn vertically.
  23. Interesting! I will give this a try tomorrow! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. What exactly would i hear if i tried this with my Klipschorns? I don't have anything to mount on, could i just rest it on the top part of the speaker or will the sound be obstructed? How high does the tweeter need to be mounted over the top plate of the Khorn? Thanks.
