  1. Ok UPS just got here with my KPT-1260H. Now to find a time I can sneak it upstairs and set it up so my wife doesn't kill me for buying yet another speaker.
  2. So I broke down and bought the KPT-1260H. Why? Same woofer, same mid-range as Forte AND...get this. I got it new for $650 including taxes and shipping. That and an 8" stand for $50. I expect this to be a killer setup. I'll keep you guys in the loop how it works out. Paul
  3. Anyone here heard the KPT-1260H and the Forte III to comment on the sonic differences?
  4. Interesting idea around two Heresy's as centers! That would be epic but I've never heard of anyone doing it before.
  5. Agree, wish I could just use another single Forte but it would be a major ordeal to make it fit.
  6. Whole system is 5.1.2. Just trying to get a good center for my Fortes now.
  7. I've been in love with my Forte IIIs for the last two months. Now I just need to find a center that will work well with the Fortes. People have thrown out various options but upon looking closely at the drivers/horns used on the Fortes and the KPT-1260H they seem to match. The biggest difference is of course 3 way vs 2 way. Fortes midrange is : K-70 1.75" titanium compression on K-703-M horn KPT-1260H tweeter/ midrange: K-70-G 1.75" titanium compression on K-703-M horn Forte Woofer : K-281 12" KPT-1260H woofer: K-281-ST 12" Based on the similar drivers how well of a match will they be? Any sonic reasons not to use the KPT-1260H up front in my system? Paul
  8. Yah I seriously consider one but it's the most expensive solution as well would make me redo my whole entertainment center costing even more money (to make it fit). I'm seriously considering a Pro KPT-1260H. Same woofer and midrange as the Forte III. Also way cheaper! It's unreal how cheap the Pro line can be from the right dealer! I can get the new Pro speaker for only $50 more then a used RC-64 II!
  9. Agreed, I just didn't want to buy a damaged speaker. He's going to fix it and I can perform a full test at that point (unless I break down and get something else). I'm looking at everything Klipsch has to offer now from their THX line, to the Heresy III or IV, and the Pro line. There are a lot of good options.
  10. So I just went to check out the RC-64 II. I checked out each of the woofers and one of them was blown. He said he's going to try and fix it but needless to say I didn't pick it up. I just didn't want to roll the dice. RC-64 III is back on the table.
  11. Exactly what I thought!
  12. Thanks all, I think I'll save a considerable amount of money and just pick up the used RC-64 II. Plus I can sneak that in when the wife isn't looking! 🤭
  13. So you've heard both the RC-64 II and III then?
  14. I'm also kicking around the idea of getting a single Heresy which I could make fit easier.
  15. Good idea, I wish I could figure out how to do that from a space standpoint.
