  1. I would definitely be all over this deal if I were closer. At least my wife will be much happier without a 4th pair of Chorus II's in our home. What has you breaking up with them?
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Here are a couple of the pics I took outside. Very cloudy day, but better lighting than inside.
  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. Good question. I hope you get some more feedback from others with experience combining the FIII with high power SS.
  10. https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/ele/d/milwaukee-klipsch-legend-series-klf-7/6982561453.html Acorn Larry got 'em and is reposting on CL now. The KLF C-7 is listed @ $325. KSB 2.1 @ $100 a pair Definitive Technology 1500 @ $375 No sign of the Belles...yet.
  11. 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.
  12. HEY! First Review! Check them out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BM-9nL8IgXA&t=36s https://www.audioadvice.com/klipsch-cornwall-iv-floor-standing-speaker.html
  13. Not a bad deal if you are into building new construction home cinemas in the range of 6 figures. I will probably never get to see or hear one though.
  14. 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.🤑
  15. Just released today. Undercutting and directly competing against Tidal and Qobuz. If you already have Prime, you can save a couple more bucks. I left a couple of links to get you caught up on the news. These guys can say it better than I can, you can just read what they have to say. https://www.digitaltrends.com/home-theater/amazon-music-hd-hi-res-streaming/ 90 days free trial if you are new to the service https://www.amazon.com/music/unlimited/hd
  16. That center channel really looks impressive. To think I believed the Academy was the way to go all these years. Maybe I was wrong. There are some black KLF-20's, timbre matched to this center, floating around the North too for around $600. Could have a serious 2 channel Belle set-up, and a killer multi-channel all in one weekend of travel.
  17. https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/ele/d/mequon-klipsch-speaker-system/6980252883.html WOW! Look at that. Look so nice. Tired of seeing those beat down cabinets that keep popping up around here. And for this price, when you count the total package, you are getting a killer deal. Good luck loading all of that gear into one pickup. Might be time for a Uhaul rental. I am so glad these will not fit in my home.😎 Details from the listing: Klipsch Speaker System for Outstanding Home Theater Experience Great condition, single owner speaker system must be sold due to a death in the family.

  18. Sold The seller has informed me that everything has been sold. Thank you for looking. Good luck with your search.
  19. I am thinking about going shopping for a few wood appliques to add later just to add some personality. Maybe a pair of one of these stained a lighter shade? What do you guys say? https://www.amazon.com/s?k=uniqantiq+hardware+supply+wood+applique&s=price-desc-rank&dc&qid=1568713178&ref=sr_st_price-desc-rank
  20. After the shelving was completed, I moved on to a mock-up for a couple of the pieces of trim. Just figuring out what kind of kinks I will need to work out and how many tricks I gotta pull.
  21. Here is close-up of those pins hard at work.
  22. OK, cat out of the bag. How do we keep those pesky shelves from sliding horizontally front to back? Million ways. I never seen this method anywhere before, but the idea came to me, so I decided to give it a go for this build. I bought a 3/16" brass rod and cut 3/4" pins, and chamfered the end cuts. I could have just bought shelf pins already made, but I made them myself anyway. OK, then drilled holes using a #14 drill bit 3/8" deep in 4 precise locations on each shelf. Very tight fit. Hammer them in until exactly 3/8" protrusion. Like I said, a million ways I could have done it. This method definitely took some time. I even have 3 variations on using this method that I decided against.
