Good news for us iii owners. Thanks for posting. Can you verify what’s in the kit, and how easy or difficult it is to make the changes/upgrade? Eg - can it be done with simple tools - screwdriver? Or more complex instructions?

Very happy that this philosophy is still alive and well at Klipsch. It honors Mr. Klipsch and respects the loyalty of customers with a real and important benefit. Thanks to all who made this happen!

You a tweeter assy consisting of the horn, wide dispersion phase plug, tweeter driver, a midrange driver and network. There will be an instruction sheet as well just like all the upgrade kits we offer.

Just like our other upgrade kits, it will have an instruction sheet and can be done with simple tools.

I do not see why it would not enhance the forte 1 & 2 line as well.  Especially if the forte 1, or II series has titanium tweeter diaphragms that have been installed.  Also, does the forte III have a titanium diaphragm in the mid-range squawker?  Since the IV does not, does the kit come with a new midrange squawker diaphragm as well?

Thanks, Randy!

 

Hmm, I wonder whether the AL-4 upgrade would be applicable and useful for 1974 AA models?  Would there be gains in sound quality and sensitivity?  One could be increased; the other would be more of a challenge.

Pat ,   the kit upgrades previous AL speakers  to AL-4     , the kit  would sound  equal or  better than your LS II  depending on the AL   network   you currently have ......... PM  @Trey Cannon for more  info.
