  1. @analogman I totally agree with you as placement is the bigger deal, thank you Captain Obvious. Our Chorus II's were a wedding present to ourselves and as I mentioned my OCD would have me restore to newest condition as possible. I do have other speakers that I would gladly do the repairs above, especially if no factory parts are available. The speakers I have repaired do not reach the level of my Chorus or Jubilees so I did not really hear a difference in them after repair - just stopped further issues. Sometimes I used fingernail polish for some cheap speaker tears like on Bose.
  2. Speaking from the Chorus II prospective I would be inclined to purchase, if available from Klipsch, two replacement passives. I figure this is overkill but I will not be parting with them and the repaired passive would have me thinking about it every time I cranked it up. Yes I am being a little OCD here but if I only replaced one I would continually wonder if there was an imbalance. I have successfully repaired speakers with the methods above but my Klipsch are for critical listening so they get the best possible treatment. My .02 cents worth.
  3. My favorite toy was the Marx Shooting Gallery. Had to be the noisiest indoor toy I ever had - Internet picture.
  4. MC 30's go great with Chorus II's and the ST-70 goes well with RB51 II's and Chorus II's.
  5. I purchased complete new RF3 II crossovers from Bob Crites and am very happy with them. I recommend them highly.
  6. Yeah but the whizzer cone is where the real magic is. Maybe a horn loaded whizzer is the next level. @Deang your reply really made me laugh and I must admit partly because I had not thought about that. How many Forte 3 drones would I need? 😁
  7. The first set of speakers I owned were Panasonic Thrusters - 6.5" full range with a 6.5" passive radiator - no tweeter just a whizzer cone. Not very nice but apparently I liked the passive idea because my next purchased set were Chorus II's. In between I built several speakers and cooked off many tweeters. Now with Jubilees I am not sure where I would go next???
  8. The Cleveland being the performance engine and the Windsor being the truck engine. With a stronger block design for trucks the Windsor is capable of more power. It is easy to stroke the Windsor to 427 CI today.
  9. I bought one of the tariff buster 699cc bikes from Honda. It had 83hp instead of the 60 hp the 750 version had the year before - it was an 86 model so tariff would have been 1985. Compared to the bike a year before the new 699cc version was far superior in looks, weight, and performance. It had an 11K redline. I am a V8 person but when it comes to bikes I like inline 4's unless we talk about the CBX. Always liked the HD's but the performance and price were a problem for me. I do buy american but broke with that for performance which HD did not have in the 80's. P.S. Got hit by a car a few years ago, got new hip to prove it, so gave up riding until children are out of college.
  10. Finally got the plaque up on the wall in the music room and put the speaker plot below it. Very happy and proud to have a piece of Klipsch history.
  11. My sister had one of those - it did work flawlessly.
  12. After having a chance to use the X11's I really have to agree again - these are the most comfortable I have ever worn. As a bonus they reproduce many different kinds of music with good balanced tone and dynamics, a thumbs up recommendation from me. I wish I had gotten another pair.
  13. There is a nice blurb about the Klipsch Museum in the Klipsch Heritage Classic Brochure on page 14. This is part if the Press kit.
  14. He could really play the banjo which I enjoy seeing every time I watch McLintock - RIP
  15. Welcome to the forum GSM. While I am not a Heresy owner I do know that parts are available to restore the modified speaker to original configuration. I would have a hard time believing that tweeter would sound better that the original, that said without hearing it. Also better upgrade parts designed for that set of speakers are available as well - try the Bob Crites website as I have bought great replacement parts from him that fit exactly. www.critesspeakers.com - no relation to me other than I am a customer. P.S. Nice find!
  16. Hopefully the 1502 will become available and a third LP Bin.
  17. I have used Yamaha products since 1989 and been very happy with them - still have the original integrated amp I powered my new at the time Chorus II's. Currently I am using one of Yamaha's Aventage receivers with and RF3 setup that has been without issue for many years and it sounds great. While I prefer Yamaha my advice is at least buy something at least midgrade.
  18. I stumbled on a deal for X11's just before Christmas and have used them for several days. Schu is right about the bass being lite but they do sound good and balanced - better than my R6's. They are lighter and easier to wear than any others I have tried. A bargain at the price I paid.

    Happy Birthday

    Happy birthday Christy!
  20. Just to throw in my two cents, you do realize the Net Neutrality was enacted only about two years ago. The Internet has been around decades - Right?
  21. Thanks for the heads up Chad - The TOS was easy to renew.
  22. I agree with dtel, somebody should have told me sooner as well. I have Jubilee's in a 20 x 22 foot room and they sound better that my reference home theater and my Chorus II's. I think you need to redo your math.
  23. Very cool and can act as a pre-amp.
