Chorus II Drivers

Recommended Posts

Updated, see below...

Alright folks...

 

I have tried Klipsch and a few other places and have come up empty handed.

 

I am in the need of a pair of Chorus II woofers. Klipsch doesn't stock them anymore, and I can't seem to find a replacement. Anyone got any tips on where I can track down replacements? Surely there has to be something out there.

Think those are the K-48-K if the same as the Chorus 1...e-bay but, maybe not. A couple or more members here came up with a replacement that may be suitable, read maybe. Good fortune and hunting Kid...:)

I went through this same situation last year. Eminence recommend the kappa pro 15lfc as the best replacement. I ended up finding a pair of k48s before i had a chance to try the kappa pros

Edited March 3, 2016 by nd-irish147      Found this on the forum.

The guy doesn't have the old woofers anymore, so the kits won't work.

Bob didn't have a bead on any either. Talking to Jim about a pair of them now.

Oh and in case you didn't know if you sign up at Amazon Smile and pic a charity such as the Klipsch Museum they will donate money for every purchase you make. But you have to use the Amazon Smile site when you order which is same as regular one.

Great replacement sub for the Mackie SRS 1500
Sounds as good if not better than original sub woofer. Can handle the hard pounding of a Teen Party!!I bought it on 12-2-2014 & Parts Express had it to me by 12-5-2014.Will get another one just for backup if my other Mackie sub goes bad.

Extremely Well Built Subwoofer Driver
When my driver went out on my Powerfield 1500 Definitive Technology subwoofer, the company recommended the lesser model. I spoke to Eminence Technology and opted for the beefer Kappa Pro-15LFC, 4 ohm speaker to max out my Dayton amp. Plainly put, this speak

Call Klipsch again. Tell them that the k48st is the replacement woofer. Make sure you have your serial numbers handy.

An update reveals that it is the passive radiators.  Anyone got any clues for that?

 

I called Klipsch today, and got the same answer as with the actives.  They said they were going to email me, but never did.

klipsch will sell the passive for the forte 3 & its been said they will "work" ok.  they look different & are a different cone material, but if you cant find originals & dont have cores to recone that may be the only option...

Can anyone else here echo this?  If they were mine, I'd have no problems with this, but since they're a friend's I'd like to be sure.

page 2 post by "chief bonehead"  the forte 3 will function ok, but they dont look correct for chorus 2, if that matters.
