  1. Postponing an audio convention seems like a small maneuver. Sounds like Italy shut the entire country down. Time to panic buy more toilet paper?
  2. @Drewg Thanks for posting this. I was just about to update the thread myself. Glad to hear the news anyway. Caution is the word of the day.
  3. https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/ele/d/hoffman-estates-klipsch-forte-ii/7086133079.html The add-ons make this a good score in this geographic area. I am in the middle of replacing bedroom furniture, and my usual speaker storage spaces are all full. Jump ahead.

    If it is $250 + fees for the pair, I will send you my PP, you can invoice me. PM sent.

    Dumb question here. Is the price for a pair, single, each?
  6. Ford VS Ferrari race from WI to AZ. Who gets there first gets the LSII's. Oh wait, I don't have a Ferrari or even a Ford. NM, guess I am out. Damn.
  7. Klipsch had some Forte III's last year. Klipsch is not currently on the vendor list. Nothing this year, unless someone drags in a pair unannounced. With a global launch of 2 Heritage speakers that I have been long awaiting to have brought to production, I am seriously disappointed in the fact that Klipsch will not be at what Axpona is calling itself the "largest high-end audio show in North America".
  8. Get your tickets today. Early Bird pricing will end @ 11:59 P.M Central Time
  9. Material list: 1/2" AC plywood Owens Corning 703 Guilford of Maine FR701 fabric Black cotton broadcloth for backs Titebond II wood glue 1 1/2" long staples 3/8" long staples IIRC it cost me about $33 per 2' X 4' panel. I purchased enough material for 24 panels.
  10. I have used Behlen lacquer toner and clear with great success refurbishing an antique mahagony desk/table. I did not know they would ship it, or how close the sheen in the Behlen product would be to the original used at the Klipsch factory. Would you expand on your knowledge here please. Edit: just checked the link you gave and with shipping the items and quantity you suggested comes to $56.99 for me. I guess I would need to pre-order some at Woodcraft
  11. The former, not the latter. $21 plus tax. BTW I would also recommend to anyone they should never use any rattle can paint for painting wood unless it is labeled as lacquer. In this case it just happens that the DAL1608 is the correct sheen + 5%
  12. As in all paint jobs, prep work is more important than the actual painting. Specifically to your question no removal required. 3 cans per pair. 3 Ultra light coats each. Leave the last 5% in the can to avoid any potential low pressure spitting. Above 60 degrees less than 70% humidity. Here is a handy pdf I found for you. application-tips.pdf
  13. Here is the product you are looking for. It will bring your Klipsch black lacquer speakers to within 5% sheen of the original. DAL1608 on the back label. I buy mine at O'reilly Auto.
  14. There are still rooms available. Are there any Klipsch marketing insiders looking into it? Moderators... here is your chance to forward this to corporate.
