  1. Which Home Theater? I have not posted in this thread before, so I though why not now. The dedicated theater room is currently getting a back wall makeover so here is a pic taken showing the recent front wall makeover. I run JBL in there The Klipsch room is a non-dedicated all purpose space. Ready for anything.

    Let's see what you got!
  3. I actually ended up selling them anyway. Either way they are gone and no longer available. Thanks.
  4. I was reading on an authorized Klipsch retailers homepage something about a new speaker coming soon to replace the cornwall III. I can't find the page, so no link to share. Just more rumors
  5. Today I got all the wood I needed for my next project. A custom made audio equipment rack. This one will go in the JBL theater room. It will not be like the last 2 racks I made that are sandwiched between Klipsch Chorus II's. I am planning for something a bit more toward the high end furniture look with this build. 60" height 25" width 20"depth with casters. 7 shelves plus the top.
  6. Thank goodness I am too far away to buy from you. That is quite a load of Klipsch you got there. I like how they are all matching. I am sure someone here could make them sparkle like new after giving them some love and hard work.

Not loosing anything buying this one, except a warranty and some B.S you will never use or care about. If you look around, hold out for another 2 months, you will find the X4500 for about half price when the new models roll out. Happens every year, and is how I buy mine.
  8. There is another pair closer to home for $800, and at least that one comes with a RC-7 center. I said "go fish" to that "deal". I do however remember selling a pair myself on ebay and collecting $750 so I guess it may happen for these guys too. I just thought it was funny to see quartets listed for $1100. Pretty sure that shattered the previous record.

  10. Pulling the ad. No longer for sale. Thanks for looking.

  12. I agree. Just name them Klipsch Heritage Chorus III. Once people had a chance to hear them, I don't see the Forte having a chance. Will even eat into the Cornwall sales. As a company, they need to focus on putting as much cash in the drawer as possible, so product diversity is what is likely getting in the way. I know I will be not be selling any of my 3 pairs of my modified Chorus II's to pay for anything in the current Heritage lineup. Exception being LaScalla AL5, size and money ruling them out though. No way 5 of them are ever going into my room. Even 5 Cornwalls in any flavor wouldn't make it.
  13. Not picking on you, just sayin....Forte is not any more Heritage than Chorus. Both were considered "Extended Heritage" before Klipsch adopted the Forte III into the current Heritage moniker.The Forte compared to the Chorus just sold more pairs in the past, cost less, was smaller, lighter, likely had a larger profit margin. As far as room space.... most of the Forte III rooms I saw set up had ample spaaaace for a larger speaker. And in the speaker world, size does matter. Laws of physics. Stay tuned....8/23/19 I am sure that a certain Heritage will be getting a new horn soon. But will it be tractrix? And will it have mumps? More importantly, how will it sound? And then how will that sound make you feel? Here is to good things yet come.
  14. Anyone else here super excited to hear the announcement of the newest Klipsch Heritage speaker to get an update? Can't wait to get all the details. Hope we do get all of the details on 8/23/19. I will post links to the media announcements as they get posted. I am sure we are many months away from any official reviews though. I know I will be visiting my Klipsch dealer for an audition just as soon as they get their hands on a pair.
  15. SOLD All original Extremely hard to buy today Subjectively one of the best bang for your buck in vintage speakers you can buy today 240Ti ts (1).pdf
  16. Not For Sale Walnut Oil Gorgeous wood grain structure Black Grills Glass tops Crites tweeter diaphrams, along with originals are included. Crossovers have been recapped. I also have Crites crossover boards also for sale if interested.
  17. I believe this will be the final week to get your votes in before one of these iconic speakers will be getting their turn at a refresh. Which one it will be? I will not be adding to the rumors here, but I am pretty sure I already figured it out. If you know Klipsch and follow their current sales focus, you will be able to figure it out too. I will leave it up to you guys to search for details on the current lineup and future plans. I have no details to add. Anything I know about has already been posted on this website. Thank you all for participating in my poll and expressing your interests. I am very pleased to have the opportunity to share these wishes with you all. Super stoked to have a "NEW" Klipsch Heritage to gush over in the months ahead.
  18. Interesting comment. Care to elaborate a little bit more? I am just a little unsure of where you were directing your post.
  19. Upon reviewing the custom granite tops, in my listening tests, I have noticed slightly enhanced upper midrange transients, ocassional extended decay on the high notes, and a noticeably faster roll off on the bottom end. I could not detect any induced ringing. Also, I could not perceive the changes in resonant frequency due to the added coupling. Well worth the additional investment. JK If any one believes that BS, send me a PM cause I have some stuff for sale you may also like. I myself just like the style and protection they will provide.
  20. I finally finished cutting my black granite slabs that I have had for almost a year now. Placed them on top of my 5 Chorus II's and my diy audio racks for a seamless look. The other 2 Chorus II's are in surround position with matching black granite tops. So what do you guys think? Do you like the look of black granite and walnut?
