Sounds that way.  The horn would be much more expensive.

That's only the diaphragm.  I highly doubt Klipsch will sell the horn to do a diy project.

You gents may very well be right but am willing to try. Here is what was in the message that was sent to Klipsch.

 

I currently have a pair of klf-30's and in shipping one of the mid range horns snapped off at the driver. I have read on the Klipsch forum that the forte III mid horn is virtually a drop-in replacement. If so are they available and if so what is the price for two of these?

 

Granted this is not actually my case but have heard of such cases have happened in the past.

Maybe nobody at Klipsch reads their forums and your confession will go unnoticed.

Perhaps ask an official dealer if he can order replacement parts for KLF or Forte III ! Klipsch will definitely sell them if it is to repair a pair of Klipsch ;)

 

For example at  https://paducahhometheater.com/    ask Cory Harisson,  because I think he orders replacement parts from Klipsch >>> @Paducah Home Theater

They started requiring serial numbers on pretty much everything so good luck with that. :)  Some cases we have to submit pictures of the damaged item.  They're cracking down pretty hard.  There was a time where they were doing it for me but end customers had more leeway and could get stuff easier but I think that time has passed.

Thank you for taking the time to reply. Guess it is time to move on to more important things, maybe sometime down the road we will re visit this. Have an antenna to put back up for 80/40/20 & 10 meters.
