Lol, while we are at it, may as well ask the  Cheif about 12 inch passives for the forte' and the 4's.

I cant imagine Klipsch would start building new parts for 20+ year old speakers unless they have a use for them in their current or future production line... one can always hope I'd personally love to see a new Chorus III bet theyd sell like hotcakes

Wouldn't it be something. If so, it could be released a little down the road like late this year or early next.

In any case, this is the type of speculation that sweet dreams are made of...

Cool!

Check in Garage then. There is a new FS listing for a OEM KD-16 ⏲️ 💣💥

 

I saw that thread. It was nonsensical because the seller said he was a "reputable" seller but then asked $350 for it. I disagree.

I didn't even pay $200 for this pair of Chorus IIs.

 

EDIT TO ADD. Klipsch Support responded with an available KD-16, which has the rubber surround, priced at $144. I might have bit at $98, but there's a $50 home repair in my future.

No. They are being made. Should be about. 1-2 weeks. 

 

sorry to bring this thread/topic up again... but i just received a reply from klipsch support in response to my email asking about the kd16 price & when it will be available,  the email says the KD16 is NOT available & they dont make parts for these old speakers.  so is this available or not & what happened to 1-2 weeks?  if it is available thats great, but the support dept apparently isnt aware of it.

 

how/when can this part be purchased?

If one had access to both the forte II and Chorus II passives they could simply weigh them and report the different weights so the KD-15 could be modified to work in place of the KD-16 new or used.
