Does anyone recommend new diaphragms for the Chorus I speakers? I may upgrade the tweeters but I'm not sold on replacing them with Titanium, looking for alternatives. I did a search on this forum, didn't find what I was looking for.

Wouldn't touch them if I were you. If there was better match Klipsch would be using them.

I personally love Crites titanium tweeters. You could always get a set of MAHL tweeters from @Dave A. I haven't heard these in modern heritage, but others have and like them. This will be a more expensive route since its the entire horn and driver replacement.

Do tweeters get worn or dulled after thirty years? I was just wondering if they could be replaced with something similar than the ones that they came with.

your phenolic Chorus tweeters will sound the same now as they did thirty years ago no worries and will still sound the same in another thirty years. Are there better diaphragms imo yes are there better diaphragm/drivers imo yes, ymmv. If you are pleased with the sound  leave them alone. Has Klipsch switched from Phenolic to other materials, yes to titanium. For around 50 bucks you can buy a pair of titanium tweeter diaphragms from Bob Crites and decide for yourself if you like them better or not.

If your crossovers have not had the caps replaced, I would start there.  Then see if you don't like the tweeters.

Get the "Crites" titanium diaphragms for a  MAJOR sound improvement for minimal $$$. If you're worried about them sounding harsh, they won't 😃. If you want to do more, here's some ideas

Go with Dave A's Large MAHLs lens and DE10 tweeter combo. Money back guarantee if that hasn't changed.   You won't send em back, trust me.   PM him if intersted @Dave A.   I had them in my Chorus and KI 362 II and loved them in both.

Recap those crossovers and use a 68uf Audyn poly cap from Parts Express for the woofer circuit, not the electrolytic ones. Every Chorus I get is recapped and yes all those old mylar caps are no good.  Best cheap most dollar effective Chorus upgrade is recapping.
