  1. Thanks they turn out nice. If the veneer is solid, strip the paint and use Watco Danish Oil "Dark Walnut" or "Black Walnut". Finish it off with 3 coats of Behlen Satin Lacquer.
  2. Here is a pic of 20's I did. Stripped the OEM Black and refinished with Satin Black Lacquer and Clear Satin Lacquer. Turned out nice using the method described above.
  3. Hi Maximus89. I just refurbed a pair of CF-3's that were painted black back to OEM Medium Oak. See my thread here.
  4. Hi Normo, The KLF line are wood veneer. The paint is Black Lacquer. I have refurbed several pair of 20's but the line is all the same. The paint is easily removed using Lacquer thinner applied with 00 steel wool. Lightly sand with 120 / 220 grit. Stain whatever color you want. Feel free to PM me if you need advice.
  5. Not mine, mint condition. Great Falls, Virginia https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1277663645762523/

  7. Sounds like you were not sold original parts. The Forte II woofers should say Klipsch K-25-K and the rear passive would be marked Klipsch KD-15. Here is a link to the Klipsch Forte II specs. https://f072605def1c9a5ef179-a0bc3fbf1884fc0965506ae2b946e1cd.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.com/product-specsheets/forte-II-brochure.pdf For the tweeter horn, search ebay for the Forte II / K-75-K. The K-79-K, the K-76-K and the K-84-K are all the same "plastic horn" piece as the K-75 with different driver motors. Buy any of those and bolt it on to your K-75-K driver, exact fit. I would go after whoever you bought the forte II's from as a scammer worthy of a discount if they were sold as original. Keep the speakers, you can restore them back to OEM. The wool material is also not OEM. It is supposed to be grey foam rubber pieces.
  8. "Fair condition" but worth the $50 asking price. Good luck with your sale.
  9. Hey Jim, Sent you a link on the wires. Welcome to the Epic Owners Group. Here is a great link to learn about your new CF-3's. This is to post #1 on this thread.
  10. He was happy. I am happy, so all good for both of us. I had them listed for $900, dropped to $800, I accepted $700. I learned a lot from you guys about the Epic series, hopefully you learned a little from me. Good news is, I got some cash to find another score.
  11. Sold today for $700. The new owners first pair of Klipsch.

  13. Hi mustangerfourlife, I only removed the front baffle. If you pull out the speaker grill sockets on the front baffle you will find 6 screws. There are also 2 more screws under the tweeter horn. A total of 8 screws hold the front baffle on. After you remove the screws, you can pull the front baffle off. It is held in place with a sticky butyl tape. I used this when I reinstalled the front baffle. You need to stretch this new tape out so it goes on thinner so the baffle lays flush with the box. I bought it from Parts Express. You will need to remove the old tape with a flat blade screw driver from the front baffle "groove" and a flat scrapper off the "tongue" on the speaker box prior to using the new sticky tape.
  14. Project completed. Turned out nice.
  15. Additional pics? Location? Grills?
  16. Just buy a new set of crossovers from Crites, zero down time, plug and play. You will not find a used pair of Crites crossovers for Chours II's. You would have a better chance of finding OEM original crossovers that were replaced with Crites. I have a OEM set like yours that were replaced with Crites sitting on my shelf.
  17. I agree, seller seems shady. He doesn't know Klipsch IMO and is very defensive. I see he got a 2nd bid, up to $935.
