  1. Wow! Awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I love the sound of a 15" driver. I'd go with the Cornwall III if pressured. Bigger is better, but the Forte III has the bigger mid range and that's where the music lives, so?? I personally have never heard the Cornwall III, but i do have a single Forte III and a pair of Chorus II-all of which barely get play time as my fun is taken up by the mighty Klipschorns. While i was underwhelmed at first with the Forte III and a slight/quick harshness at a certain frequency i don't recall right now(it would consistently make my ear react to that sound), i've grown to really love the sound of the Forte III when i play it in mono. LOTS of speaker for it's size. Smooth and highly detailed, with my one negative being that quick little harshness to my ear at one particular frequency. I know i can't give proper feedback on critical stereo listening, but hey, owning 1 and giving my feedback is better than not owning 1 and having no input on the matter. I absolutely love both aesthetically including the Heresy III. That's a VERY hard decision. Forte III, Cornwall III, or Heresy III + sub(s). Yikes. I'd pull my hair out trying to decide. Ultimately if i had to choose on the spot, i'd blindly choose Cornwall III's if only because i know i love how 15" drivers sound, and i know it can be difficult to integrate subs(with the Heresy IIIs) and having owned Forte I, II, III and Chorus II's all with passive radiators, i know placement can be tough and you never really stop experimenting with placement when you have passive radiator speakers. (i agree with the person above who mentioned the Natural Cherry finish with whichever speaker you choose. That would look perfect in your room, but i'd go with silver grills over lambswool or black).
  3. I'm finding it really difficult to enjoy my Khorns back with the stock AA's. Could be the -3 stock setting that has the mids too forward for my listening position, but it's giving me listening fatigue way too fast. Really harsh. Anyone got tips to EQ the mids down around -3? Which frequency bands should i turn down?
  4. Interesting. Seems the largest piece can only cover up my two Khorn tops. I’d need the 4 side grills still. Seems pretty costly but thanks for showing me which. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. @TFR1 looks great! where did you get that grill cloth?
  6. I deleted the photo of them on his KHorns but iirc he had a custom top so maybe that’s why they looked a bit too big but yes they look great! I want some for my KHorns, and put my silver pie badges on my Chorus II Maybe he can make these too as mine are a bit old and faded Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. He’s done it for a member here before so I know he’s got it I do think they’re slightly too big compared to the originals though Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. How come he doesn’t have the Klipschorn cursive badge up for purchase? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Oh man. Those are so ready for a k402 on top. 🤤
  10. Awesome! [emoji1605]enjoy!! Now you have to listen to all your favorite albums all over again! Describe some differences you hear for us after some critical listening! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks. Do you think it was veneered with something different on the LF though?
  12. Could the bottoms be birch? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Well i guess ill find out after i strip the bottoms, but to me they look nothing alike
  14. I understand it's Fir Raw, but the tops only match searches for marine grade fir plywood as that 3rd photo which is a stock photo of marine grade fir. Regular douglas fir veneer looks like this in my searches:
  15. could the LF bin be birch or cherry veneer?
  16. It’s closest match I can find and it doesn’t look like normal fir veneer, but it feels like a veneer as it’s wavy on top The LF bins seems like a different veneer, they have a dark stain that I want to strip but the pattern isn’t the same with more vertical patterns and even what looks like figures in the wood if you can see in the photo: Where it’s chipped you can see the raw fir under Any wood experts out there that can help me out?

  17. ***SOLD*** Thank you for your business @indyhawg If you have any questions, shoot. I'm sure Dean will give you every part name as well.
  18. Pending information for transaction Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Selling everything, need to move to a small apartment unfortunately and just need cash right now. Can't take the KHorns or Chorus II with me, well maybe if i can't get what i want for the Chorus II, they can stay but was thinking of just downsizing to Heresy II's(IIIs would be preferable if a deal came up or if i find another single damaged walnut Forte III, i can fix it up and make a pair). The small room has never been a problem. Amazing bass + acoustic treatments help. I mean i'd love to hold on to the KHorns stock for now, but what are the odds i'd find 2 good corners in a small apartment?
  20. I’ll admit my listening levels on the Khorns don’t ever really get insanely loud considering I don’t need to due to my small room but when I’ve pushed them, the K77s are still fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. These do not have the zenner diodes. But you’re free to get your old ones put on if you want to protect the delicate K77. Or there’s the crites tweeter option which can handle more power and go up to 20khz Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. It doesn’t have the tweeter protection so does that technically make it an A? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Audiocap PPT Theta film and foil in both the mids and highs. 6uF caps for the mids with the taps set to -6 as most seem to prefer. Dean will have to tell you about the other parts used. Paid over $700 in October of 2018 Looking for $550 + shipping Thanks for looking Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
