  1. I used to own the Original Forte's Resistors are usually OK, even after many years. However, the Capacitors do go bad, especially if the original ones were electrolytic types.
  2. I apologize too, I guess I took it the wrong way
  3. Ya think ? Do you think I don't know that, or something ? WTF ? This Forum is Dead, compared to what it once was, so one would think that any post here is better than no posts. Not that it is really any of your business, but my reason for posting to an old thread was to add to the knowledge base of the Klipsch RP 3 and the Klipsch RF 5
  4. I have owned both the RP 5 and the RP 3. I sold the RP 5, and still have the RP 3 The reason the RP 5 has a lower crossover point is because the 8 inch midrange will not go up as high as the 6.5 inch midrange of the RP 3, and it does not have as good dispersion. The RP 3 IMHO is the better speaker. It images better with a wider sweet spot, and it's bass Quality is much better, because it has a sealed vs ported woofer.
  5. I totally agree! The RP 3 Woofer is very tight and defined because it is a sealed vs ported box.
  6. Does anyone have a crossover schematic and/or a picture of the RP 3 crossover ? I think I saw a picture of the crossover awhile ago, and it seemed to have Mylar Caps in it ?
  7. The reason for the lower crossover point on the RP5 is because of the 8 inch woofer. The 8 inch woofer simply will not play well as high in frequency as the smaller 6.5 inch woofer in the RP3.
  8. I gave those speakers to my little brother, who got back on the drugs, and sold them, so I have no way to check, but as I remember, the center channel was n ot special. Much of the time, I just used the 2 speakers, with a phantom center
  9. I know this thread is old, and the B&K Components TX 4430 amp sold. I just wanted to add that it is an excellent sounding amplifier, and if you only use 2 of the 3 channels, it has almost never ending current. A real sleeper of an amplifier. It sort of sounds like a tube amplifier, meaning it is warm, rich and 3 dimensional. Just the amplifier to tame a bright speaker.
  10. Both woofers are still to be had, on the used market.
  11. I have had Cornwall 1 and Chorus 2 in this room, just not at the same time. The Chorus 2's were quite bright sounding to me, and all it took was a look at the measured frequency response on the Klipsch website to realize why. The speaker has quite a rising high frequency response. I sold them, and got some Forte 1's upon a suggestion of DJK. I got a far better sound, in my room with the Forte's. I would not want to ever own Chorus 2's again.
  12. The Legacy Audio Deep Impact subwoofers are very good subs. They will play 120 db at 40hz! However, they are not designed for Bass below about 22 hz. Some of the HSU and SVS Subs will play lower, if that is what you seek. I have owned both the SVS Ultra Pair of cylinders, and currently own the Legacy Deep Impact. However, I never owned both, at the same time. But, from memory the SVS Ultra Pair of Cylinders, mounted in my room corners were real room shakers, but lacked mid bass punch. The Legacy does not seem to go quite as low, but still shakes the room, and has a lot more of that mid bass kick. Both subwoofers will play louder than I want.
  13. I very much like the way it sounds! I owned original Forte's once, that sounded great in my large room. I probably should have kept them, but they looked kind of stupid in this room, because they are rather small. They would shake the room with bass. However, from my recollection, they did not sound like this Academy very much.
  14. What line of Klipsch Speakers was the Academy intended for ? Is there a line of Klipsch speakers that use the same drivers as the Academy ?
