  1. Hi, I have been eyeing the Crites Cornscalas for some time now and have been researching and considering the various versions that are available as well as a number of Klipsch community user tweaks. This past weekend I picked up a pair of (beautiful, excellent condition) Forte I’s at a garage sale for $165. Model #864....... I am going to hold off on the Cornscalas and spend a little time with the Fortes. At $165 I don’t mind putting in a few additional bucks to make them sing. I have a few questions. 1) In refurbishing or upgrading a pair of older Fortes has anyone completely replaced the mid range driver with a non-Klipsch driver? 2) In the Cornscala world the ALK crossovers seem to be very popular and in some circles are considered to be an improvement over the Crites crossovers. Does anyone have experience with ALK’s crossover for Forte I? 3) I have read a lot about replacing diaphragms and refurbishing/upgrading/replacing crossovers as well as adding bracing, etc.... For a 30 yr old pair of Forte’s is there anything else I should consider or be aware of? 4) Beyond rotating the woofer and passive radiator 180 degrees is there anything else I could or should do with the woofers and or radiators? Any benefit in replacing them with new parts? Thanks in advance!
  2. I own a pair of Forte’s. Interested in hearing a pair of “Cornscalas.” Wondering if there are any Cornscala owners on the Central Coast (Santa Barbara or Bay Area would work as well). I apologize in advance if this is posted in the wrong section. Thanks
