  1. I bought a beater pair of La Scalas to experiment on a couple of years ago. I really learned a lot. The forum made it easy to document:
  2. I finally decided on Maze Audio. They build braided cables for about the same cost as my diy experiments. I'm using their Ref4 braided cables. They were definitely an upgrade for my La Scalas and QuickSilver dual mono setup.
  3. That makes sense. I removed the Kilmat from my La Scala horns, and stuck on Dynamat, because it was thicker. The sound definitely improved. Voices, horns and drums became far more distinct and refined.
  4. The Forte I horns may seem harsh to new Klipsch users, but if you've had the Fortes for decades, you tend to like the sound as it is. I only got into vintage Klipsch horn speakers during the covid shutdown, and damping my Heresy and Chorus mid horns was a substantial improvement with my tube amps. The current lineup of Klipsch Heritage speakers have much better horn designs.
  5. Oops.... my Crites replacements were plain ol' boards. Didn't realize the danger to PCBs.
  6. I switched to Crites for my Chorus IIs simply because one of my crossovers stopped working. The sonic difference was not so pronounced, but using 10awg copper wiring gave me a pleasant little boost in presence and gain. Try it on your second speaker.
  7. Nice! These would make great studio monitors. I'm sure someone will get a great deal.
  8. My Chorus IIs were also on carpeting. The risers were beat, so I replaced them with solid pine Forte IV type risers. That little tweak really tightened up the bass, giving them a more sealed subwoofer type of sound.
  9. I saw two pairs recently that sold for $1,700 and $1,800. I just wish I needed these. Great deal for someone.
  10. Interesting. These have not sold yet. It appears that the Forte III used prices are coming down, as more of us need to focus on food and gas costs.
  11. Yep. The ebay ad doesn't even show up in my ebay history. It was a pretty elaborate scam. They had lots of inventory from an antique ebay store with lots of past transactions, all fake.
