  1. Location. Prices. Shipping. Fees. Fill in the blanks
  2. Sale pending. Expected delivery by June 7th. Thank you all for your interest. I know it is hard to see something this special slip past you. In the end there could only be one owner. I will let the new owner speak for himself when he is ready to do that. Please wait until after the delivery is complete before sending requests. Please keep an eye out for more of my work. I will have more projects completed soon. If you already own a special set of speakers, and you think you might like an extra special finish job done for you, send me a PM, contact info, and pictures. Lets see if we can come up with a solution that works for you.
  3. I'll take any compliment I can get.
  4. I remember somewhere here, Bob posting how his partial hearing loss did not make him the best judge by ear. If you need a good judge find yourself a youngster to tell you what's happening.
  5. Just when we thought we had everything under control. https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-monkeys-escape-with-covid-19-samples-after-attacking-lab-assistant-11996752
  6. Wonder who got the Chorus II's in MN that sold for =>$650 in the first couple of hours on Memorial day? I never ever had a chance to call. It reminds me of when I drove to 500 miles RT to MN in a snow storm there to get a pair priced similarly. When I got there the guy was visibly sweating from answering all of the phone calls he was getting while he awaited my arrival at 9PM. Gotta be first.
  7. I love it. Very well written OP. Sorry you feel attacked here Jim. I did read into it. A good thread that can be generalized anyway. My 2¢ below. Probably my own inefficiencies at hand, but I will admit to you ALL right here and right now this... I post a price, or make an offer to purchase one time and that it, I never budge. No singing, dancing, drama, battle of the wits going on with any used product I am associated with. Now if there are circumstances involved, those not related to the product itself, or unknown condition issues that later arrive, then the negotiations with me are valid. I will walk away over >$25. Done so many times. I don't play. No fun to be had negotiating with me. Move on if that is your motivation please. I started trading when I was 7. I have tried it many ways, wheeling/dealing and whatnot, so my own personal experiences have lead me to this eventuality. Do what works best for you. Just don't expect it from me. Trust me, I have done plenty of homework before an exchange ever happens. As much as I try to leave style, personality, and attitude out of the deal, unfortunately there are times my being "firm" comes off as exactly those things to some people. On more than a few of those occasions I am sure they really just wanted to "play". I am not having it, and am better for it, but probably not richer. I am OK with that. I have tons of other skills that keep me going.
  8. https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/ele/d/rolling-meadows-jbl-vintage-speakers/7115541799.html (circa 1992-95) Original MSRP in 1995 was $1000 each. The spice of life. Only posting because they are a personal recommendation of mine as a reasonably priced upgrade to anyone looking to change it up within the JBL side of life. The L7 is a cross between a 250Ti and a L100T3, being that it is the replacement 4 way design of the former and keeping the tweeter of the later used here as a supertweeter extending to 27Khz. The 5" tweeter is new for this 1992 model. The 8" is a new take on what made the 250Ti so smooth. The bass is provided with a side mounted Aquaplas 12" This L7 has a very flat and very neutral frequency response. No horns or waveguides here. The price to performance in this one is really fantastic. There is a whole series of these, so multichannel options are there as well, although a proper center was never developed for them. http://www.lansingheritage.org/html/jbl/specs/home-speakers/1992-l-series.htm
  9. Real nice! I like the price too. They clean up so well. How did the sale go? And what equipment are you running? They will require fine tuning on placement. The passive needs wall reinforcement. Start with 8"-12" toed in a little. Notice a difference?
  10. Where on Earth? Must be dreaming. Stuck in a time capsule. Just because you wouldn't. #157 in line.
  11. Thanks for the interest. Freight shipping on a pallet only. Just purchased the materials for the finish today. Going with Graystone. Not sold yet, but I have heard plenty of interest within that color range. Possibly headed South soon. I will do something in a dark cherry on a future project. Stay tuned folks, I should have some pics up towards the end of the week.
  12. I would post photos all day if the Klipsch community forum website had more hardrive space on their servers. Last week my account was locked from posting any photos. I hit my limit before I even knew one existed. Took me 1 day to remove enough old photos to hold me for a while, but I am still rationing what I am going to post. Thanks for your donation.
  13. I don't, but I know someone who has. He will not ship though. What are they worth? The drive for me is 3 hours RT and 200 miles.
  14. Found it. I think this is will be it. Probably not far from the current Klipsch distressed oak finishes. Subtle, modern, understated. Likey?
  15. Found another winner https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/ele/d/brookfield-klipsch-heresy-ii/7127670105.html Quoting the listing "Just paid $300 the other day of off FB. I’m asking more than double plus you have to repair a tweeter. Isn’t capitalism great?" I would not give this DB a nickel. do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers
  16. Reduced the price to $600 and the listing was deleted with the hour.
  17. Yeah. Your good to go for a while on those. Spool up cash later, but for now just enjoy the music. Pull the crossovers on the Forte II's instead. Your in luck. Check out ALK Engineering for Forte II crossovers. Al Klappenberger design. It's a redesign and a descent upgrade over recaps or Bob Crites. @John Chi-town Want to share what you have going on inside your Forte II's?
  18. I am thinking of going this route. How do you like the color scheme on these?
  19. I usually see this kind of thing happen when family sells your stuff from under you. Either that or a clueless person using a computer for the first time. They get mass calls from the usual flippers and boom price goes up and etiquette goes out.
