Kind of an appropriate thread resurrection... I'm not very satisfied with my Chorus II. Crites diaphragms and crossover kit both installed. I find them strident and fatiguing. Compared to what? KEF 104/2, Yamaha NS-690ii, and Infinity RS-II and RS-IIIa. Maybe it's the room, or the placement, or who knows what. Plenty of power behind them, so that's not the issue. There out from the front wall about four feet, and two feet from the side walls. I didn't really like them in my HT setup, either. Also tried a Jolida 302b tube amp. I haven't completely given up on them. They have a great rep and I have a bit invested in these guys. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
