Great news! We now have 100 Voters. I am posting a screenshot just to see where things go from here now that the Cornwall IV has been official announced. Will that actually sway future voters opinions on this topic? The percentages have not been varying at all. Will be interesting to see if it remains this way next year when the Cornwall IV is out in the wild.

The new Cornwall IV has everything I had hoped for in a new Chorus III (minus cabinet dimensions of course) and with the availability of the pro models the KI-362 II & KI-396 II I really do not see a Chorus III in the future as those models are pretty much newer, improved versions of the Chorus already.

Right. Or you can modify Chorus II's as I and others have with similar components resulting in better frequency response than either of the pro models you mentioned. None of this though discludes me from wanting mumps on my horns, but preferably in a smaller form factor than CW IV and larger than F III.

You can easily transform the Cornwall 4 in chorus 3. I'd like to close the hole of the reflex on the Cornwall 4 and put on the retro a massive 18" passive woofer. Another project I'd like will be a klf 40 with 2 woofer 15".

Pay roughly six grand for a new pair of speakers and extensively modify them?  Or are you thinking ahead 15 years into the future with an old, used pair?

No, since I would like a version of the chorus 3 I imagined it as big as a cornwall to be able to mount a passive 18 "woofer, that's all. I was just dreaming, about nothing else.

Okay, you were considering what it would take for Klipsch to whip up a Chorus III.

It is big enough...

Just wish it were so... welcome!

Thanks for the welcome! I must have read that using a passive woofer of the same diameter as the active one produces a slightly subdued emission. I do not know how much there is, probably to not enlarge the cabinet in the chorus 2 too much, the rear had the same diameter as the front. Contrary to the forte'2 and 3 where the rear is of greater diameter of the front. So I imagined an 18 "rear passive on a 15" front active woofer in the cabinet of the cornwall 4, resurrecting an anabolic chorus 3.
