  1. I had a similar problem... I ended up buying walnut Chorus 1's b/c I wanted the front ports, not a rear passive. I A/B'd my La Scalas & the Chorus for a few weeks... then I chose Chorus! (& sold my La Scalas) I'm STILL happy I kept the Chorus 1's over my LaScalas 3 yrs later.
  2. I have one, always liked it, but I got an "idea" to improve it. I noticed the tractrix horn/tweeter appeared to be the same size as the highly respected RB-5 one. I saw an RB5 one for sale online, took a chance... & it fit exactly!!! Sounds WAY better now with the RB-5 titanium "top end" 😃
  3. Sonicseeker, If you use a hi-res source (I'm a CD fan myself) these songs are all recorded/mixed extremely well & will sound GREAT on most Klipsch. (especially Chorus!) Police: "Murder by Numbers" #1 !!! ZZ Top: "Fool for Your Stockings" (best recording i've found is on "One foot in the Blues") Pat Donohue: "The Road to Kingdom Come" Dire Straits: "Six Blade Knife" (remastered version) Los Lobos: "Kiko & the Lavendar Moon" Steve Winwood: "Higher Love" Pink Floyd: "Time" Thin Lizzy: "Cowboy Song" (remastered version) KD Lang: "Constant Craving" Cowboy Junkies: "Sweet Jane" Shannon: "Let the Music Play" Copeland: "Fanfare for the Common Man" Pachelbel: "Kanon" (On Telarc)
  4. I searched & read ALL the old threads on here for port mods before I did it (far from the 1st one to try it) The consensus was a 7" total extension was ideal (others calculated it based on Chorus box volume using computerized speaker building programs) All I know is it added about 5hz on the low end w/o ANY flabbiness (or I would have reversed it) I also bought a bass test tone cd just to test the results (never measured it with a mic), but see the "ear test" results below that I copied from the old thread when I did it: PRE- RESULTS: I could hear a noticeable dropoff in volume & sound "fullness" around the 45 Hz test tone prior to my modifications POST-RESULTS: After the ports were installed, I can now play a 40 to maybe 39 Hz test tone without any dropoff. They will play lower tones as well, but past 39, it decreases in volume as it gets lower (bass volume is consistant @ 39-40 Hz and above) To this day, I still think the bass is tighter & generally just sounds better than before, & I'm VERY happy with the 5-6 Hz I gained on the low end 😎
  5. C1's with 7" port extensions added gives U the bass of a C2, but are less finicky about room placement. I'll never part with either pair of mine 😎
  6. I like it loud, but at about "10:00 o'clock" volume, pictures fall off walls & my chest/ribs vibrate with the bass notes. Over the years I've ruined quite a few CD cases that vibrated out of their stand & hit the floor/broke 🤣
  7. I actually ended up selling my black LaScalas I bought new in 1986 after I picked up my 1st pair of oak Chorus 1's a few years ago. It took about 6 months of listening to decide, (& it may shock some of you), but 3-4 years later I have NO regrets... (& have since added another pair of pristine walnut C1's to my collection)
  8. I agree with the others, it's hard to beat a Luxman for the price. My vote is for R-115 (117's can be $$$, & the 115 is usually plenty of power for most Klipsch) I'm using my R-115 as a pre-amp (Lux recievers sound "warm", not sterile/flat) with the pre-outs feeding a restored Yamaha M-60 amp. Why? I get the remote volume control & "warm" sound of the Lux PLUS the watts/headroom & cool dual power meter display of the Yammy 😃
  9. Noted, but I realized that I also forgot to mention that I swapped out the tweeter in my KSP-C6 with one from the highly rated RB-5. (K-105-K, Titanium diaphragm, better horn lens, etc.) Probably why I like it 😃
  10. Write your reply... Forums>...>The Klipsch Korn
  11. The grill is definately steel, but it does have a thin flexible rubber "gasket" on it (I think to help it seal/sit flush). The STRONG neodymium magnets I used stuck to it w/o a problem.
  12. No affiliation, but just posted 30 min ago. Central FL (Cocoa Beach). https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/224013829782882/ The 4 original badges on the grills might be worth that $ 😃
  13. This is really good stuff: 14 Gauge Speaker Wire, Oxygen Free Pure Copper. 100 ft for 45$ https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N4BIXDX/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_navT_g_B2DY4RWT0VA5Z7F205PT.
