  1. Woodcraft. Thats the one I meant to mention, not rockler. What would you suggest for me to purchase if I go there? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  2. If theres even any original protective finish on these? There's a lot of small cuts as seen in photo Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  3. In that case. The oil in Danish oil will feed the wood but the stain will stay on top for me to wipe off no? Repeated applications of Danish oil gives protection? My local home depot doesn't have much outside of Howard's and watco stuff. Theres a rockler 45 min away that has more options but im not in the mood. Dont know where else Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  4. Just saw watco rejuvenating oil. Never tried it before. Worth a shot? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  5. So Danish oil followed by Howard's feed n wax and buffer and im good to go! Thanks! [emoji4] I'm asking myself how important it is to get them installed and playing music because I wonder how much effort I have in me to sand off the finish and get it nice and clean and raw veneer and just apply a satin laquer finish for a more natural look. I know cherry darkens over time so I probably wouldn't get what I'd expect like the new klipsch cherry veneer options. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  6. I appreciate the lengthy and detailed post. What I think ill do is apply Danish oil with #0000 steel wool. Maybe 2 applications? Wipe off all excess oil and wait for a few days and then apply a wax finish. Howard's restore a finish is an option. Will it work before or after Danish oil? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  7. I'm thinking Danish oil since I've used it before but not sure if it does anything over a previous finish. I know of Howard's restore a finish but I wanted something to make the cherry grain really pop in the light. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  8. I love only walnut and I've never found any vintage klipch in walnut. Not complaining. The cherry and oak they do on today's new speakers are gorgeous veneer. The vintage red cherry with barely any wood grain and patterns isn't my that attractive to me but its all about the sound in the end! Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  9. Just got home with my new v.1 CF4s in beautiful cherry! Anyone got any tips to apply some kind of oil with #0000 steel wool that'll really make the speaker pop while covering small scratches? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  10. According to history, both the Cornwall and Heresy started out as center speakers, so...a heritage center isn't taboo at all to the heritage prestige. Just needs to be horizontal for the modern home.
  11. Yes. Heresy II to Heresy III upgrade kit. Not sure how long that was offered. I feel the III to IV upgrade kit is 100% necessary. I remember there were a lot of bummed out new CW III owners as soon as the IV was introduced. That's a lot of money spent only to be told your new expensive speaker is now obsolete. Same thing now with new FIII owners, but the FIII owners have a real possibility to make the move up via upgrade kit. I believe Klipsch is the kind of company who will do it for their customers, but maybe not announce it and only forum members will really know about it. My guess anyway.
  12. My ear was very sensitive to that tweeter. I don't remember what frequency it was, but my ear would instantly perk or twinge when the freq. played. Got super annoying. I remember 1 other guy who mentioned it and made his III's a 2 way because of it
  13. Throw in another suggestion for the RC-7. If the copper driver mismatched color bothers you, i'm sure there's suitable drop in black 8" drivers. I had an RC-7 that i dropped the drivers from-i forget the RF-7 II's little brother name. Got another one for you. If you don't mind a short floor stander, a kg 3.2. Drop in the tweeter from the Forte III. If Klipsch offers parts upgrade kit to Forte IV, you'll have tons of options and possibilities for a timbre matched center with your spare Forte III parts.
  14. The K70 G has been used in 2 way pro speakers soooo you could also find a KV4 with the same mid horn as the Forte III minus the mumps and you can screw on the k70g compression driver and you got a timbre match, though you'd have to look at the measurements. I personally did this. I had a single Forte III, took the horn with mumps and k70g and dropped it into the KV4(no photos sorry) and it worked for me, but i don't have golden ears and i had it set up with Chorus II's that had Ti diaphragms for the tweeter and mids, not Forte III.
  15. Probably look at a KLF-C7 and add a titanium diaphragm
  16. If you're scared of tubes, try McIntosh SS or a hybird integrated tube pre amp, with ss power.
  17. Cory, are those beauties Natural Cherry veneer?
  18. The KG, Quartet-Forte-Chorus and Legendary KLF and Epic lines all had their baby, middle brother, big brother and timbre matching center. I can't imagine that was good business, but it was great for all of us. These days, with the Forte's entrance into the Heritage lineup, there's no room for a Chorus with the Cornwall IV and there's no room for a Quartet with the Heresy IV. What would sell however, imo, is a heritage matched Center speaker and subwoofer The center can now be timbre matched to the HIV, CWIV and now Forte IV so it makes a lot of sense imo. IIRC, there was already a heritage sub in the works that never came to fruition?
  19. That looks much nicer than the original. But do aesthetics match sound. Well see! Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  20. Right but the Cf4 is a k30 neodymium magnet. Is a k31 the same minus the magnet material? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  21. Is the CF-4 fit just going by the fact that that its been done by mere mortals like us or has Roy come out and said its a suitable replacement? Just curious if its just a physical drop in replacement, or it specs similarly to the original
  22. AH. Makes sense. So at least now there's an in production woofer that could fit the KLF-30 and CF-4 with parts being rare to find and nearly impossible to find the CF4 woofers. Not a perfect match for CF-4, but close enough and Klipsch made. Many would be more comfortable with that than using non Klipsch parts.
  23. I know the KLF 30 woofers were used in the original Jubilee, duals in the folded horn, but i'm not sure i understand what you're saying. The new 2021 Jubilee that's just recently been introduced, with the ports in the folded horn and uses a single driver, is the updated K31? It only uses a single 12?
  24. They're amazing. Although to be fair to the Ciare, we might hear them better on the cf-4 with the way they're configured in 2 way and more vocal range being played with the woofers. Again, correct me if i am wrong. They'd be playing their lowest frequency up to i think 1.5khz and the tweeter comes in, but they sound like 1 driver which i love
  25. I thought so too even with the phone recording. He's got the stock woofers on the cf-4 in the 1st video vs the ciare on the klf 30s in the 2nd video.
