Those are 25hz tapped horn (Lil' Mike) The Belle in the back right corner is sitting on the other sub (laying sideways)

Thanks. Cool idea placing the Belle on top.

Daydreamed about putting a sub under each of my Chorus IIs to raise the tweeter and save floor space.

@314carpenter, you pursuing these? if so, good luck!

They're even Walnut.

@Rivernuggets , want to come team up for a listening session? Help me decide? 

 

Contact to the seller will not occur until after I return from my trip to Dubuque Iowa in a 3 person, 3 city, Klipsch gear parking lot swap by Diamond Joe's Casino. One lucky guy gets it all. Not me, I am in it for the cash.

 

From what I have read so far...LaScala is  prefered, but the difference is marginal, and I do not have the floor space for the depth of a LaScala. Belle is the go to when depth is a concern. I measured and I may have 2" to spare if I place one Belle shoved into the corner. The other end is open on a 30' wall, but feng shui says to keep everything centered of the TV which is centered and mounted perfectly with the cathedral. No, I am not putting more anchor holes in my walls.

 

Other choice is to split Belles with a forum member and use one for my center, since I have had no luck on those Chorus II walnut. Either way it would be weird for home theater with the timbre between Chorus II and Belle. 🤔

 

Currently there is 34" between the right side wall and the right side of the right hand AV rack in the picture below.

=== regarding the LS/Belle difference/preference there is No doubt moving or shuffling the Belle from here to there is Much more difficult than the LS. In comparison the Belles’ are a PITA — . Been there, done that —

I have 4 Belles and 4 LSI's (one pair splits, one not) and again, I don't know why.

If I am listening with my eyes open, I prefer the Belle, eyes closed and the LS win!

Best is still LS outdoors. Not sure of all the reasons why, but it is an experience.

+1 on the outside. I suspect it sounds a lot better due to less echo, the sound travels away in the ultimate sound trap... but I'm not sure of that. I agree that outside listening is great. I want to move my MCM outside for a listen.

Sad I missed on this. Been looking for Lascala or Belles and these were in my backyard.  I stopped coming here everyday because my wife says I have a problem.  

 

The problem is i missed these!

Nothing a lawyer can't fix. 🤪

 

Hate it for anyone who wanted these and missed them. Best thing about is that there are more, hang in there.

At almost two hours away, I can't swing it anytime soon. Work during the week and Spring weekend projects around the house (before mosquitoes arrive) will keep me grounded for a bit.

No longer available. Listing is deleted now. Very surprised they moved so quickly for several reasons. Fairly low population density area of the country. Challenging logistics of moving them. Priced just high enough. I wonder if they are actually sold. I researched enough on them to make a qualified decision. Oh well, my wife will happy to hear the news. :rolleyes:

I am the one that bough the Belle's in this thread.  So, thank you very much for posting the alert!  I am still messing around with placement and such.  But very impressive thus far.

Pics, or it didn't happen. JK. Thanks for bailing me out. Glad it was you and not me. I needed them like a hole in my head. Seriously though, If you want to hang out on the forum, we would love your company. Welcome and congratulations.
