  1. Not sure about shipping options but these have been for sale for a while in Milw. https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/ele/d/klipsch-heresy-slant-stage/6203771419.html

    Can anyone offer a suggestion on how to remove adhesive from grills? I've tried several rounds of goo gone. I'm thinking of buying new badges directly from Klipsch and they won't cover the leftover adhesive from the original badges. Thanks!

    Listened for about 45 minutes last night and they sound fantastic. Still have to play around with position in the room (corners vs off the wall). I'm excited for some time this weekend!

    Thanks Adam. The pro amp and mixer were negotiated out of the deal . Im pretty sure they were the source of the tweeter problems!

Howards restore and feed n' wax cabinets KLF-C7 1. Blown tweeter replaced with Crites titanium 2. Re-stained cabinet with rustoleum ebony stain M&K MX-200 (was not functional) 1. Re-soldered input jacks (rca) to circuit boards 2. Cleaned pots with deoxit Left to do: 1. Find badges 2. Enjoy!!! Thanks for everyone's help. This was a really fun project!

    I was pleasantly surprised tonight to see a package from Bob Crites at my house. I patched the punctured passive woofer with a filter paper and glue and now just finished installing new titanium diphrams in the tweeters and the newly capped crossovers. I'm waiting 24 hours to let the glue dry and will listen tomorrow night. Any recommendations or requirements to break the new components in? thanks!

    Poor lighting in this picture but you can see a slight improvement in color. The 0000 steel wool did take most scratches out. Pictures don't do it justice.

    maximus - those cabinets look fantastic. I didn't get a great picture of my risers. They definitely were wet at some point. They've expanded and are a bit rounded with a lot of chipping veneer.

    Finished the first round of cabinet work today. Used Howard's restore and finish with 0000 wool followed by Howard's feed and wax. The pictures don't give justice to the difference it made. My photo skills are pretty weak. The risers are in rough shape. Defientely took on some moisture at some point in their lives. I did the best I could - may decide to take another swing at the risers down the road. All that is left now is patching the passive woofer, deciding on badges (eBay original or buy new style from Klipsch???), and waiting for crossovers and tweeters to arrive from Bob Crites! Thanks for everyone's help!

    No worries, I'm glad you are keeping this thread going. I plan on working on my cabinets tomorrow and will be posting pictures!

    I'm interested in this as well. If I decide to recone, is it best to do both passive subs at once?

    Good luck with your project. I'll let the smart guys give you advice. Is ok for me to use goo gone on my Chorus II grills?

    Crossovers were sent to Bob Crites today. He will be returning along with 3 tweeter diaphragms (Chorus and KLF-C7). Can wait to get them back! I'm hoping to work on the cabinets this weekend and have them ready to go when everything returns. dtr20 gave me a great tip to use wool rite dark to soak the grills in a bathtub. That worked really well!! Now how to I get badge adhesive off?

    Thanks for the advice. Agree on the diaphragm install. Bob was kind enough to send me the install instructions and it looks relatively simple. My plan is to send my crossovers in to be upgraded. Today i I am doing my first solder work. The Chrous seller threw in a M&K mx-200. Needs new rca inputs and the pots need to be cleaned. Hopefully that does the trick and I'll have a working sub (and KLF-C7 that was thrown in as well). Here are are pictures of the passive. Thanks!
