  1. I wonder if anyone has had the chance yet to compare them to the old Forté IIs. I assume the III would be a significant upgrade to the II but I'm just curious if there are any specific areas where the IIIs really stand out compared to the IIs.
  2. They sure fit your interior nicely! I imagine they sound great too.
  3. Interesting to hear your first impressions! Is there any change in tonal balance with the ALK crossovers?
  4. I'm very curious as to how they will sound!!
  5. You're lucky, I live in the wrong country for finding Klipsch
  6. Can anybody tell what the difference in sound is with the ALK crossover, compared to the Original Forté II crossover?
  7. Which will have zero-G mag-lev woofer suspension and carbon composite horns with graphene diaphragms I am sure And retro-vintage decals. Hand made in Hope, Arkansas

  9. Ok so new progress, I changed the filter settings on my Audio-GD Ref 5.32 DAC from 8X OS to 4X OS, which ever so slightly rolls of the highs and seems (at least top my ears) to give slightly more low end and that seems to balance out the sound even more. I can even use the Ti tweeters now without fatigue.
  10. I'm drooling. Well, I hope I live long enough to be able to buy these second hand one day
  11. Just to be sure, have you swapped the mid drivers from left to right to see if the problem moved along as well?
  12. Thanks! In the end I got there, even though I had to buy four KP-2500C speakers to get the two tweeters I needed I just switched to the K-79-K tweeters of the other two speakers, which still have the original diaphragms and for me, the sound is now much easier to listen to. I was just wondering, have you ever heard a difference in sound between these tweeters with and without ferrofluid? Mine have ferrofluid in them and I'm wondering if that does anything to the sound, since K-75 tweeters don't have ferrofluid in them either... Could it be that K-79-K + ferrofluid + Ti dia yields a slightly higher spl than K-75 without ferrofluid + original dia?
  13. Ok so I just bought four KP-2500-C speakers (the owner wouldn't sell two) to use the tweeters for my Forte IIs. They definitely sound better now than with the vifa tweeters, at least the sound has opened up. I also finally got a chance to install Bob Cites' titanium diaphragms, which I had laying around for a few months now. I must say, although they maybe sound more detailed, they also sound a bit more sibilant, compared to the stock K-79-K diaphragms. Does anybody else share this experience? I also upgraded the crossover caps, which makes them sound even a little brighter still...
  14. I recently upgraded the components in my Forte IIs and came across the same thing. They said 1985 on the back.
  15. Does this filter also get rid of the "dip" between 200 and 2Khz, that can be seen on the frequency response graph?
  16. thing is, they all sounded fine before he dropped one of them... Do you think maybe the coil got misaligned due to the shock of being dropped a bit too rough on a concrete floor??
  17. Well, I picked them up, all four of them and they turned out to be genuine Klipsch KP-2500-C speakers! Even have a a sticker with the model number on. Good news: I finally have the right tweeters in my Forte IIs and installed Bob Crites' titanium diaphragms which I had laying around for a few months now. Bad news: I think one of the woofers might be stuck. after listening to the speakers the owner lifted one up to show how heavy they are and then dropped it a bit roughly on the floor. When i gently push the cone I can feel resistance and a light scraping sound can be heard. Gotta fix me some phono jacks to test it but I haven't much hope...
  18. Well, it looks like I'll be doing that myself this evening. The guy has four of them and apparently only wants to sell all four of them in one go, so if they're all ok, I guess I'll be buying four of them and will try to sell two of them on. Basically all I need them for is the tweeters to replace the wrong ones in my Forté IIs. Maybe I'll use the K-42 woofers and find/fabricate some Chorus II networks for a conversion project which peeked my interest a while ago... Hopefully they'll be up to snuff because I can't seem to find any info about a trapezoid version of the KP-2500-C. The drivers don't even seem to be flush with the cabinet, as can be seen in the picture, which seems weird... They are Klipsch branded though, so i guess we'll just have to wait and see... (photos were sent to me by the owner)
  19. Hi, A guy is offering to sell me his KP-2500 trapezoid speakers. Now this probably sounds like a stupid question, but do they have the exact same drivers and network as the standard rectangular KP-2500C? I ask this because I'll be using them for parts, so I need to be 100% sure they have the same drivers. I'm guessing they do, but just in case is why I'm asking... Thanks in advance, Laszlo From the Netherlands
  20. interesting... Do you mean to say that the Forte II is perhaps a bit warmer sounding than the Chorus II? I wonder if this could be due to there being a bit of a dip between 200Hz and 2000Hz with the Forte II... I wonder if simply using the Chorus II network normalizes this "dip" causing the speaker to sound a bit more forward...
  21. they sound ok-ish, being a bit sibilant at times and I'm missing the "air"
  22. I know I'm reviving and old thread here, but is the main reason for using a K-42 woofer with the Chorus II network in the Forte II to compensate for the increase in dB of the mid and the high, due to the fact that in the Chorus II network, they aren't being padded down as much as in the Forte II?
  23. Thanks, the reason I asked is because I though the KP-250 has the K-792-KP but also comes with a Ti diaphragm if I'm correct...
  24. @jjptkd I saw in another thread that you have put K-107-ti tweeters in your Chorus IIs, did you need to do any modifications to the cabinet or can they be used as a direct drop-in? Just to avoid confusion: the K-792-KP is exactly the same as the K-107-Ti, right? Since they both have the tractrix horn and also both seem to have the Ti diaphragm...
  25. Hey thanks! I did have some ebay alerts pending, but you seem to have beat them to it! Only €186,- shipped (including taxes) for both tweeters... zoinks... I'm just wondering now whether or not it would be cheaper to just order a set of K-107-ti from a Dutch distributor. Since those already have Ti diaphragms, I could sell the Crites and save me some money....
