How did you disassemble the plastic on the front and the rear wood on your CF3s?

Thanks in advanced.I was thinking of getting the Black off mine.I redid an old pair of Quartets that had walnut under them.These seem to have cherry or walnut.the grain looks smooth like walnut or cherry.

Hi mustangerfourlife,

I only removed the front baffle. If you pull out the speaker grill sockets on the front baffle you will find 6 screws. There are also 2 more screws under the tweeter horn. A total of 8 screws hold the front baffle on. After you remove the screws, you can pull the front baffle off. It is held in place with a sticky butyl tape.

I used this when I reinstalled the front baffle.

You need to stretch this new tape out so it goes on thinner so the baffle lays flush with the box. I bought it from Parts Express. You will need to remove the old tape with a flat blade screw driver from the front baffle "groove" and a flat scrapper off the "tongue" on the speaker box prior to using the new sticky tape.

He was happy. I am happy, so all good for both of us.

I had them listed for $900, dropped to $800, I accepted $700.

I learned a lot from you guys about the Epic series, hopefully you learned a little from me.

Good news is, I got some cash to find another score.

Hey Jim,

Sent you a link on the wires.

 Welcome to the Epic Owners Group. Here is a great link to learn about your new CF-3's. This is to post #1 on this thread.

HOLY SHITBALLS! Cleaning up my old Klipsch SA-3s from the deck and wanted some music. Had these CF3s (V3) stored for over a year  in the workshop. Never hooked them up to a decent amp and played them as mains so put them in the middle room, used a Marantz 2240 that was on the shelf and a Sony SACD player set to 2 channel. Popped in Chucho Valdes Bele Bele en La Habana and now I understand. I may like them better than the LaScalas. Going to be spending more time in the workshop, scaring the cat.
