  1. 106" 2.35:1 Stewart FilmScreen Balon Borderless with StudioTek100 snapper material. I am going from a 92" 16:9 EliteScreen, so at 8X's cost differential the change should be dramatic. It is reference material, very accurate and neutral from any angle, for use in a light controlled room. Supports 4K, 8K, and 16K. The Balon Borderless provides zero edge floating image from any angle and can be mounted 1"- 5" off the wall. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jpwx8vxSL0Y
  2. YES! It actually fit like a glove!
  3. Summer is always a tough sell for indoor equipment. Many are out boating, RVing, or whatever. Hang in there, it will happen. Heck, if I were close I would even grab a pair just for the experience.
  4. Still here. What? No one has a pair of Forte II with original stock crossovers? Why not upgrade to new electronics today and ensure your speakers are giving you everything they can?

    D-Day

    My grandfather, pvt. Loren W. Tully 743rd Tank Battalion Company B, landed on Omaha beach D-day at 6:30A.M. He was the driver of a Sherman M duplex-drive amphibious tank. I remember how he told me he never seen a single hollywood movie that got it right. Turn the ocean into blood, and fill the beach with bodies, and you start to get close to the reality. He said Saving Private Ryan D-day scenes got the closest. Stopping there with details told to me by him. The Initial Assault Wave Ninety-six tanks, the Special Engineer Task Force, and eight companies of assault infantry (1,450 men), landing just before and after 0630, were to carry out the first assault missions "On the right, the 743d Tank Battalion brought in all its tanks on LCT's. Company B, coming in directly in face of the Vierville draw, suffered from enemy artillery fire. The LCT carrying the company commander was sunk just of shore, and four other officers were killed or wounded, leaving one lieutenant in Company B. Eight of that company's 16 tanks landed and started to fire from the water's edge on enemy positions. The tanks of Companies C and A touched down to the east at well-spaced intervals and without initial losses. In the 16th RCT one, only 5 of the 32 DD tanks (741st Tank Battalion) made shore; of Company A's 16 standard tanks, 2 were lost far off shore by an explosion of undetermined cause, and 3 were hit and put out of action very shortly after beaching. The surviving third of the battalion landed between E-1 and E-3 draws and went into action at once against enemy emplacements." " By the end of D-Day the 743rd Tank Battalion could report 38 operational tanks (with one in repair). Nevertheless, the much larger numbers of tanks that made it to the beach from the 743rd Tank Battalion by all accounts proved critical in suppressing and destroying German positions. This helped the 29th Infantry Division's men to get off the beach at the D-1 Vierville draw. In addition, the 743rd Tank Battalion even took over for the missing 741st Tank Battalion's armor in helping to open the E-1 St Laurent draw off the beach."
  6. Not sure how to vote. I have 2 small home theater systems. One, I voted Forte... Klipsch Chorus II's and the other system JBL 250Ti/240Ti. I voted Pre/Pro as I use only 2 channels of the AVR and 7 channels of external amplification for the remainder for both atmos systems. Subs are Monolith. Plasma and projector.
  7. 40 voters! Not too shabby. Thanks guys. Seems to be pretty evenly split so far. Comments or suggestions are always welcome.
  8. Selling a pair of Forte II crossovers I bought a while back. I am just not using them any longer. These are the complete crossovers on a wood board. The upgraded wiring is included. Will be shipped bubble wrapped inside of a Styrofoam cube that will be stuffed and packed inside of a cardboard box. $200
  9. I like your approach on this sale jimjimbo. I enjoy these same type of activities, restoring the original look and feel these speakers had in an earlier life. Many people do not understand the amount of hours, and love, they end up being showered with. Nice prices BTW. GLWYS.
  10. Finally have those photos available. Quality is unmistakable. Unfortunately the price has risen. https://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/ele/d/milwaukee-museum-quality-klipsch-h700/6901141999.html

  12. $#!T or get off the pot. JK. IMHO, If you have the proper space to place them, preferably near a wall, I can't think of another speaker for that kind of money that can do better. Worst case... buy them, try them, sell them.
