  1. My recently purchased Chorus IIs came without risers. I believe the risers on originals will work on IIs as well (if I am mistaken please enlighten me). Speakers sound perfectly fine without them but I figure they came stock with them for a reason. Also looking for a McIntosh L19 cabinet if anyone happens to have a line on one. Not willing to pay the 3-400.00 they are asking for them on fleabay. Mike
  2. Mat is spongy and highly textured, nothing heavy has ever moved an inch during transport, but I don't think I have ever had to slam on my brakes either. Good point about the styro though.
  3. Me too! Is disassembly as simple as removing screws and disconnecting a few leads? If so probably worth the effort.
  4. Sorry to hear about your misfortune! My tonneau cover keeps out almost all moisture even after torrential rains and I still plan to put them in large heavy plastics bags before transport.
  5. Hmm... Will look it this for sure.
  6. Don't have a spare mattress, but have access to pretty much all the styrofoam I need. We stockpile it at my workplace for recycling, so it won't be missed. How much do you think is needed?
  7. HaHa.....If only it were that easy! Not looking forward to 12 hours on the road.
  8. I could be wrong, but I think I have read somewhere that it's best to have the weight of the speaker magnets being borne by the mounts during transport. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.
  9. Not currently, but, in the Mid-Atlantic in summer rain is always possible. My bed has a fold down cover that keeps out 99% of rain and I plan to have some heavy duty plastic yard waste bags on hand just in case.
  10. I will be driving 6 hrs each way to pick up a pair of Chorus IIs, and want to make sure they arrive home unscathed. They do not have boxes and will be riding in the back of my 10 year old Tacoma pick-up with lousy shocks and thus subject to infinite bumps and vibration. I have transported speakers before, but never this far and speakers this heavy. My current thinking is to wrap them in moving blankets and sit them face down on some 1" thick Styrofoam insulation sheets. Is there anything else? My truck's bed does have a rubberized mat, so sliding around will not be an issue. Thanks ... Mike

    RIP John McCain

    And a great American ... He will be missed!
  12. A lot depends on local market/demand. I got my H1s for 300 less than a year ago. The were near mint oiled walnut but without grills. The paint and missing badges are 2 knocks on them just in terms of aesthetics. 500 might be good price for H2s but serials correspond to H1s. The average price for H1s seems to be around 400, so 300 might be a good place to start.
  13. Sold ... to me! Cabs are going to need some work, but for $450 I'm excited to get them. I've been looking for Chorus IIs for a while.

    Too bad we live on opposite coasts as I would love to have them. Been looking for a pair of Fortes or Choruses for awhile now. Those are pretty as can be. Why is it all the good ones seem to be 3000 miles away?
