    You should know. Your children are well traveled. Having to make a choice was very difficult. I had many offers, but I waited it out to make sure they would be going to a good home where they will be loved. I will be enjoying the Chorus II's indefinitely. I believe we now have 3 happy homes.😀. No regrets. Am I right? How are you doing George?

    North/Central Wisconsin (Oshkosh, Appleton, Neenah area). 

    I'll buy your pair of Forte II. I will pick them up. I need a home for my crossovers. Send me a PM. You could come to my place and listen to Chorus II modded/non-modded vs Forte II modded/non-modded vs JBL. They are all heavy. Be ready for a workout if you come by.

    @314carpenter, aren't those your speakers? 

    Yep. Buyers choice. I prefer the Crites boards over DIY recaps due to the larger separation of the components, rock solid workmanship, and upgraded autoformers. Not everything in speaker design is purely focused on sound quality

     

    Of course the primary reason for reworking the crossover at all is that they are nearly 30 years old and the quality of the original crossover parts selection IMHO were merely adequate at best when they were brand new and have now likely gone out of spec causing audible changes (not for the better) in various frequencies responses throughout the entire bandwidth of the speaker.

     

    As for why I have 2 crossovers choices for sale in the first place.....came out of another pair I sold previously

    The new Cornwall IV has everything I had hoped for in a new Chorus III (minus cabinet dimensions of course) and with the availability of the pro models the KI-362 II & KI-396 II I really do not see a Chorus III in the future as those models are pretty much newer, improved versions of the Chorus already. 

    Right. Or you can modify Chorus II's as I and others have with similar components resulting in better frequency response than either of the pro models you mentioned. None of this though discludes me from wanting mumps on my horns, but preferably in a smaller form factor than CW IV and larger than F III.


  6. Great news! We now have 100 Voters. I am posting a screenshot just to see where things go from here now that the Cornwall IV has been official announced. Will that actually sway future voters opinions on this topic? The percentages have not been varying at all. Will be interesting to see if it remains this way next year when the Cornwall IV is out in the wild.

  7. Well I finally have the rack I built in place in it's final resting spot in the rear of my dedicated theater room. This is a small room. 12' 6" wide by 13' 6" deep by 8' high. Now I am making good use of that closet. Should make for good cable management too. Speaking of which, I still need to do major rewiring before I have a running system again. All the cables are the wrong length now and all need to be refitted. The plan is to have an extra long loop of cable secured in place to allow removal of the rack without having to unplug anything first. I have attached lacing bars to back of the new rack for a clean look and ease of equipment swaps. I cheated on the lacing bars and bought THESE ADJUSTABLE SHELF STANDARDS, painted them to match the rest of the rack hardware and attached them with brass screws again.

     

    I decided to swap the Denon X4400H for the Marantz SR6012 I just bought.  While I still own the Classe CAV-150 it will run the front 3 speakers bridged @300W/channel. I also just bought another Monolith 7 which will run the surrounds and Atmos @200W/channel straight. The Epson 5040UB is now hung shooting a 106" Stewart Balon Borderless W/ Studiotek 100 that barely fits between the front speakers, OPPO 203, Nvidia Shield, and Harmony Elite. Only thing missing is a quality music streamer which I am kind of lost on as far as  retail pricing goes.

     

    To make this space work better I removed those spinning media storage units I had in the closet. I then filled the empty closet space/sides with the orphan speakers I have left over from the center channels I use in my 2 main listening rooms. I wrapped the orphans up good with wool blankets. I filled even more voids of the closet with more wool blankets, because I have a vintage collection of them and need to put somewhere anyway. Will make for good bass traps. Removed the closet doors, hung a curtain, still working on wrapping the inside of the closet with the black felt that the rest of the walls in the room are lined with. The front 40% of the room is lined with triple black velvet.

  8. It's a job. If it was your job you would do the same thing. Your ears can tell you more of what you need to know. Steve's content is for entertainment puposes only. Show me something he does not like. Stereophile has recommendations for interconnects speaker wires and power cords from $40 to $20,000. Pretty much recommended anything. I still watch Steve and read the crap though for entertainment.

  9. Final stage. Just a few touch-up spots of topcoat. I Will have the reveal this weekend. Then I will find a friend to help me carry it downstairs. Hope to have the entire system running this weekend too. Kind of a temp set-up now in the theater room but have not had time to spend in there anyway.

    I though that this was going to be 7 Belles.  💪

    Yeah right. That is just over $700 a pair. An all time record low. If I could find him that deal on one pair, then he would want 3 1/2 pair at that price. Give someone an inch and they will take a mile.

     

    Haha, just messing with Ya.🤑
