  1. Hi! I thought I would tell you guys how it went. I happen to come across a pair of Chorus II here in Sweden that I bought:) I am so happy I didn’t spend five grand on pair of Forte III. I am very satisfied with the Chorus. The drivers are in great shape. I have ordered a pair of Titanium diaphragm from Crites and are going to update the crossover in a few weeks. thanks for all the advice:)
  2. I live in Sweden buy the way and here the prices of vintage Klipsch is much higher than in the states
  3. Thank you! They seams in good condition?
  4. Hi! Wondering if you could help me identify the year of production on a pair of chorus I am going to buy? One of the speakers seams to have been made 1993 but the other one, 1999?
  5. Thank's for the advice. Mabye I can borrow my friends Velodyne and try the crawl technique first and see what results I get.
  6. Hi, I'm going to invest in new setup this autumn. Planing to go fore Heresy III with one or two subs instead of Cornwall III. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I should be able to more easily adjust the bass tones to the room acoustics than if I choose Cornwall. Would like to here your opinion on where you think the best placement of subwoofer is in my room and if I can start with just one sub. It may be a bit hypothetical and I know the best is to try, but your advice are important for what brand an model of subwoofer i choose. The sub need to have high-level input because i use a tube-amp. Subs at my wantlist is REL T7i, T9i or SVS SB-1000. If choosing T9i I only can afford one. REL have a wireless system called Arrow which makes it possible to place the subwoofer wherever I want. I don’t want to pull cables across the room. The X marks possible placements. Sorry for my bad english Best regard, Fredrik
  7. I can recommend Line Magnetic amps. Personally have the 216ia and have tried it with both Heresy and Forte III with good results. Line Magnetics integrated amplifiers are affordable and great sounding 👍
  8. Hello! I'm planning to either buy Heresy III or Forte/Chorus II if I find a descent pair. Which one of the T9i or SPL-1000 would you choose to integrate with Heresy? I'm primary play music at home, not so much movie-watching. I have a Line Magnetic tube amp and therefor I need a sub with speaker level input. I have tried a SPL 1000 Ultra at home with my current speakers and I like the EQ function and that it has remote-control and presets. I have never heard a REL sub but many talks about them. The T9i doesent digg as deep as the SPL but 27 hz may be enough for music?
  9. I like your metaphor. You are absolutely right. And regarding Shakydeals comment, I understand that my system would sound even better with the right acoustic treatment and a better shaped room but this is what I got for the moment. I put the music first and do not care much if they measure correctly or not. The most important thing is that the system creates a involving feeling and makes it funny listening.
  10. Triod. The bass feels thicker in tiod-mode
  11. Nice setup! I have a Line Magnetic 216ia with 22 watt in triod-mode. But don’t think I have used more than 1-2 watt with the Forte III at home and then it was very loud. Mabye the drivers get better control with bigger powersupply but I don’t think that amplifier with many watts in general kick the drivers more than a 20 watt amplifier if give the speakers 10 watt with each amplifier. Excuse my bad english. Hope you understand what i mean
  12. I have now spent a few days with Forte III and can coincide with the fact that there are a couple of fantastic speakers that sound balanced and surprisingly soft at the top. Very easy to listen to. The Heresy III I had at home last weekend had a bit more lively rendition. But they could be a little sharper with some music and also thinner, which is not so strange given the size. Forte III is better all around and I could live without subwoofer. So the big question is whether a new pair of Forte III is worth their money. Here in Sweden you have to pay $ 5000 for Forte III because of the weak Swedish currency. Sometimes if you are lucky, it can turn up Forte II and Chorus II in Sweden and Norway for about 1500 US dollars. For around 2500-3000 us dollar I could get a used pair of Heresy III and one or two REL sub/Velodyne SPL-1000 Ultra. would like to hear your opinions
  13. Cool! How does they sound compare to originals? I bet some will argue that colouration from cabinett and driverchassi brings soul to the sound.
  14. Nice! What kind of modification have been done?
