  1. I have a used set of Klipsch Forte II speakers I picked up last year. I have always enjoyed Klipsch speakers and always wanted a pair (I still run KG4's in my living room) . They sound excellent at most volumes but when I push them hard the passive radiator gets stuck vibrating and causes a terrible low rumble noise. For example if I play side two of Dark Side of the Moon at the end of the album the vibration noise is very audible and when the music is over the passive radiators continue to vibrate and cause the loud low rumble noise until I lift the needle from the record. Just the background white noise of the needle on the record with no music is enough to keep the passive radiators stuck vibrating violently. Almost anything Led Zepplin at only moderately high volumes causes this as well. It ruins the ability to listen at high volume which is one of the reasons I got these speakers. My set up is as follows (yes i pulled out my old equipment when I bought the speakers): Onkyo Direct Drive Turntable CP-1130F with ST XLM II Cartridge Denon DRA-425R Receiver Klipsch Forte II (from 1995) Is this an issue with the Forte II's at high volume? Is there anything that can be done? The speakers themselves sound great and at lower volumes everything works fine. Any thoughts, suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  2. Hi, I'm new here and in Klipsch world. I'm thinking about to buy a new speakers and some months ago I listened Klipschhorn and I felt in love, its aesthetics, sound, .... I'm living in Barcelona and there's no shops to listen them and compare. I have a room of 25-30m2 (5x6) and I don't know which one could fit better to me. Forte is too much for this kind of room? It'd be better a Heresy? It's for music, mainly, jazz, soul and sometimes soulful house. Could you help me with amplifier as well? Nowadays I have a Cambridge Audio 640a (75wx4), Could it works till I get a better one? Any recommendation? Many thanks guys
