    Ok, someone please purchase these so I don't have to drive to AZ from WI. This is A LOT of speaker for the money, thanks for listing here first.



    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.

    Finally. Klipsch was never there when I went. It's about time.

    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".

  3. 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.

    I use Behlen nitrocellulose lacquer, great stuff.

    2 cans of each is plenty for 3 coats of Black and clear on a pair of KLF-20's.

    Buy it here.....



    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

    I did not see Klipsch on the exhibitors list.

    There are still rooms available. Are there any Klipsch marketing insiders looking into it?

    Moderators... here is your chance to forward this to corporate. Would be a shame to launch Corwall IV's without hitting all of the whistle stops.

    Will the @Chief bonehead be in attendance? How about @Trey Cannon?

    Probably the only reasons I would go, to me a lot of it was like an expensive flea market.



    Not sure. Last year was Klipsch's first and handled poorly by Saturday Audio. 


    It is a big show so one could easily get lost in the commercialism. Most of this stuff a mortal human could never afford, but there are deals to be found. For example HSU was selling subs for 30% less than anywhere.


    I remember having a great learning interactive experience at some of the seminars. Last year Matthew Poes (now on the Audiohaulics Youtube channel) presented a how-to REW seminar and later at the after-party with AV Nirvana and JTR speakers featuring subwoofer integration in a home theater, all while watching a movie on a $5000 screen with $3000 masking and a $40,000 projector. I went for the free food.

    Since I’m so close to Schaumburg, and have never attended Axpona, I’m just looking forward to checking out the event. Klipsch will definitely be a must stop.

    Get your tickets now. Early Bird Discounts expire Sunday February 2nd.


    See you there.

  8. I will include four 2" wide X 10" long black Velcro strips to firmly secure the crossovers to the bottom of the speaker cabinets. No soldering. Easy install.


    I will also include an electrical schematic to help with the wiring. Mark sure you mark the + terminal of each speaker before doing anything. Also check the polarity of each speakers wiring before disconnecting anything.


    The factory crossovers are most likely attached to the terminal cup. Those can easily be removed with a nut driver or ratchet. 

  9. Will be making a drill press table with backstop and sacrificial insert for this drill later. No changing of belt pulleys, as it is variable speed with the pull of a lever. The vice is a huge upgrade over the last one.

  10. Sometimes it is difficult to keep my garage/workshop above 60 degrees for certain wood working and finishing jobs. This should help out on the coldest of days. I have an LP hose long enough to keep the propane tank outside, just have to remember to shut off the gas before spraying anything.




  11. Bought this for one reason only. Tone mapping via HDR optimizer function. Looking forward to better looking 4K spinners on my 106" Stewart StudioTek FilmScreen and less projector settings roulette. Will absolutely be keeping my OPPO-203 for all other purposes though.

  12. The two K-25-K woofers I have are best suited for someone who only wants ORIGINAL parts for a Forte II restoration. I Probably have the only 2 available in the country at the moment. No one in the current market is scraping Forte II's for parts and all of the original replacement K-25-K's have been gone for 15 years.
