Claude: it has been my experience that there are far far more amplifier designs which do not make good bass that there are those which do. For the most part the ones that do more often than not have  solid power supplies many of those happen to be large. There are always exceptions to the rule, I built a small SE 6v6 amp with walnut size transformers. As would be expected it's output was around 3/4 of a watt, though it had very good bass unfortunately it ran out of gas in a hurry. For some reason it seems harder to design an amp with good bass than it seems to be for other components in the chain. Just my observations/experience.

Hi! I thought I would tell you guys how it went. I happen to come across a pair of Chorus II here in Sweden that I bought:) 

I am so happy I didn’t spend five grand on pair of Forte III. I am very satisfied with the Chorus. The drivers are in great shape. I have ordered a pair of Titanium diaphragm from Crites and are going to update the crossover in a few weeks.

 

thanks for all the advice:)

Enjoy those Chorus II. They look great! The titanium diaphragms and crossover refresh are definitely worth it.

I agree with you, which is why I use Crown K2's for sub bass.
