  1. Just curious why no traction on this Forum? Price, location, already full basement? Anyway, last day before I go to a larger audience.
  2. Plenty of time left if you have not voted yet. I would like to hear more feedback from those of you with opinions on the matter.
  3. Been there done that. Took me a while. These things go in stages. I got rid of the entertainment stand and built a pair of equipment racks to bookend the Forte II in the proper upright position. I have pics around here.
  4. Better yet a Forte II for the center channel. I have a pair for sale @agreen60 and @DTO could possibly split. Either way, welcome to the forum David. A wealth of of knowledge awaits you here.
  5. I love the shrinkwrap idea holding a hardboard panel in place. I would put 2 staples in the back myself. Cover with a moving blanket and your good to go.
  6. Nope. 5 Chorus II's on the floor plus a spare and reference premier in Atmos. All walnut. My Klipsch room is finally complete, and so is my JBL room. I am simply trying to dial back from the 33 speakers I own now. That's after I sold 11 speakers in April that were part of my previous configuration.
  7. I never have luck with goo gone. Goof off! is the better more potent product. Place one dry rag behind the grill and one wet rag in front and dab. Allow the product to work, but not allow it to spread. Once it is loose give it a good scrub. Then wash in the bathtub using Dawn dish liquid, rinse and hang dry.
  8. I would like a forum member in the upper midwest who has not had an opportunity to own a pair to get these if possible.
  9. SOLD These are my own so......for one week I am allowing forum members only the first crack at these. SOLD Consecutive serial number Klipsch Forte II pair in original black lacquer finish. That means factory lacquer. Crites titanium tweeter diaphrams installed. Otherwise all original. I bought these from the original owner in 2013. The cabinets are near perfect 9/10. Drivers are all fantastic 10/10. Grills are 10/10. The risers have some slight veneer chipping on the very bottom portion that is fairly typical with these so 8/10. I could reveneer the risers and reapply new lacquer on them for you if you want perfection. Original phenolic diaphragms included in boxes in the sale. Although these currently have the original crossovers installed, I have 2 other crossover options for the Forte II that I will discuss in PM with interested buyers who have made me an offer on the speakers. I want to find what works best for your situation. No crossovers are available in exclusive sales at this time.
  10. Well the Classe amp I recently bought from a different gentlemen in Illinois who also owns Klipsch, but is not a forum member. However I would recommend you keep an eye out for more equipment like this coming from @oldred . I am sure if I was not completely stuffed with gear I could have arranged for a larger haul, except my wife and my bank account would have surely objected. Even after selling 11 speakers in April, I am back at 33 speakers in my collection again. My wife is questioning my resolve to pair down. Spring has been exhausting. 5 trips to Illinois, 1 to Indiana, 2 to Minneapolis, 1 to Wisconsin, 1 to Iowa. I keep telling her that was the last trip. I think it is finally time for a someone to pay me a visit instead of all these deliveries and pick-ups.
  11. https://sarasota.craigslist.org/ele/d/klipsch-chorus-11/6876628270.html Florida is the place to be. Here is another for the same price.
  12. Well I do have this now. Classe CAV-150 SPECIFICATIONS: Gain: 29 dB S/N Ratio: More than 135 dB THD+N: 0.004% Channel configuration With 8 Ohms load Six (6) Channels 150 Watts x 6 Five (5) Channels 300 Watts x 1 (bridged) + 150 Watts x 4 Four (4) Channels 300 Watts x 2 (bridged) + 150 Watts x 2 Three (3) Channels 300 Watts x 3 (bridged) Power Consumption (idle): 225 Watts Power input: 110V 60Hz Dimensions: 6 3/4" x 19" x 21 1/2" Net: 70 lbs.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
  16. New lower price. I am inundated with speakers. More available for locals.
  17. 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.
  18. 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".
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
