  2. walnut Forte II in pristine condition. Not sure if I want to use them in side surround position to save floor space in the living room or what I will do with them. Also need to decide what to do with the orphan that ends up odd one out of the 5 channel base layer. I had been storing one on a shelf, and may do the same again. Or I may sell the orphan, but if I do that, then if I ever changed things down the road I would have to try to sell another single at that time. For now, I am just living the dream of a 5 channel base layer of Chorus II's in matching walnut flavor.
  3. I don't think you all had a chance to see just how beautiful the grain structure is in the pair I just purchased. Here is a pic of one of them sitting in my living room. Not bad for a side surround channel speaker!
  4. Here is the new look living room front stage. Back wall treatment will come later. Please note these not the newly purchased speakers, just one of my surrounds now pulled into the center position. The black lacquer Forte II pair will go up for sale soon.
  5. New lower price. I am inundated with speakers. More available for locals.
  6. Not true. You can easily. I do it all the time. Do not rent. Borrow. Standard homeowner cordless drill with a hammer mode for this job. First to cut though the tile. Use a diamond bit like this one https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rubi-1-4-in-Wet-Cut-Drill-Bit-4920/204074164. Standard drill function.Let the drill do the work. Do not push. Keep it wet. Next follow up with the hammer drill bit into the concrete floor. This is where you use the hammer function. Use a vac to suck up the dust and silica. A real door stop will protect your door and your speakers. I happen to like this one. https://www.amazon.com/Design-House-204735-Mounted-Nickel/dp/B0083ZLGOS/ref=asc_df_B0083ZLGOS/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167148637601&hvpos=1o36&hvnetw=g&hvrand=7555674049267045856&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9018991&hvtargid=pla-307616126318&psc=1 I typically use Tapcon anchors. Easy to use easy to remove. They even come with the appropriate masonary bit. Too bad Tapcons are blue. Hilti makes similar anchors in a metalic finish. Oh, and one more thing. Really try to keep those original Cornwall III boxes if at all possible.
  7. Yeah, I think I have totaled over 2000 miles put into my living room set up alone. Amazing deal for someone who "goes the extra mile".
  8. Hey guys. I really could not have asked for a better experience working with @oldred. His collection is extraordinary and in extremely fine condition. If you are a buyer, I recommend keeping an eye open in his direction. I hear there will be more premium items available soon. Real cool gear. Lucky for me my collection is very similar to his and these new pieces will make my dream system whole. You will not find a more gracious seller and host.
  9. Damn! Thats a lot of Walnut Klipsch! Thank you again George. My neighbor and I did the speaker shuffle and everything is safely in place. Not sure where it all fits in just yet. Plenty of options now. Tweekers delight.
  10. It ended up being a members only thing. @oldred and I got together on a sale that worked for the both of us. Other gear was exactly what made this possible for me. My suv is completely stuffed. Good thing I did not buy anything else or I would have to had left my wife behind LOL. JK. Pics later. Just taking a meal break in FRG. More details to come.
  11. Stay tuned. It is not over yet. Same Bat-Time, same Bat-Channel.
  12. @Emile Did you see this one? I thought you were looking for a pair. Listed 4 days ago. Local to you. https://sarasota.craigslist.org/ele/d/klipsch-chorus-11/6876628270.html
  13. I can guarantee you that is definitely not going to happen.
  14. Umm...we are in Alerts. Did you mean move to a new thread?
  15. Rivernuggets does Oak Oil CHII. I sold him one pair myself. It is me looking for CHII Walnut oil. I just seen them on CL and was hoping to find them here in Garage and not in Alerts. I am willing to go $900, but $1100 and 300 miles is just not right for me. I guess I will have to wait another 18 months. My problem lies in the fact that I only need one single CHII to serve as a center channel and to replace the Forte II pair I use now. One speaker just sits on a shelf unused indefinitely. So it is like me paying $1100 for one speaker. These are very nice indeed, but I specialize in speaker restoration myself, so there is no added value there for me when they are already in top shape.
  16. @avguytxI just tossed a 10% off $300 coupon for HD. Expires today. You want the code?
  17. FINISHED! anyone got info for a dustcap and upgraded grill cloth?
  18. WTF. How did I miss this? Stupid trackers. Edit: Oh, I know, who would think that anything I would have interest in would list below the $100 min.
  19. KG 5.5 Stage 2
  20. Unless you actually wanted to buy them. There may be a college frat house beater pair sitting around for less money that has trouble selling. Otherwise in good condition this is the going rate. With the upgrades on this pair, I was surprised to see the ad remain up for 2 weeks. If you got a Chorus II you want to ditch let me know.
  21. On my way home with my next project.
  22. Question. First, Is the ONLY cosmetic difference with new passive (III) and the old passive (II) in the appearance of the dustcap? Second, if so, could a person get a new passive and refit with an old dustcap to restore the original appearance? Never seen this asked or suggested before. I will repost this later in the tech/mod section.
