    Three pairs of kornwalls, three pairs of Hearseys,

    saving for Khorns.

    Had a deal on a set of Belles go away last week. My friend was going to sell them to me, but his deal on another set, didn't happen. O well

    A guy here in town has a primo set of horns sitting in his shed. I shudder everytime I think of that kind of abuse.

    Sadly I'm out of room. I live in a reasonably sized house, of 2100SF, with thirty years work of life around me.

    I'd throw it all away to make room for a set of Horns, they are sacred ground for me. Spiritual

    My home theater consists of R-15M's for the front R/L, an R-25C center, and R-14M's for the surrounds.

    As an extremely poor audiophile all I own are the Klipsch ProMedia's which some people don't think even qualify as Klipsch speakers but I know another guy that felt the same way about the Klipschorns, he loved them so much I'm surprised he didn't try and trade one of his kids for a pair.

    Care, my children are early thirties, nobody in their right minds would trade horns for them!

    I love my Quartets and am holding out for an actual deal on Chorus II's. They will come.

    Again I've got my eye on a set of horns, in remarkable condition. Gonna see if I can sell one of my vintage motocross bikes for purchas. The bikes a very rare 1974 Rickman Zundapp, out of Germany.

    I just upgraded the tweets in my KG4 to Crites. Sounding...better? Need to give it more time for a serious listen.

    I would love to upgrade to a set of Quartets one day.

    I got a RW-10d sub on Craigslist, for a song. In my HT it will easily blow you out of the room. It only specs down to 28hz -3 db but has a Bash amp with 265 watts RMS. It really gets loud. While picking it up the guy also sent me off with a pristine pair of RB-61's for next to nothing. My new surrounds now, much better than the old ones.

    looks like I have to add a pair of RB-5 IIs...third time for the RB-5s and first for the II designation version...the difference is Monster Cable Z Series wire used and different, real wood veneer and their MSRP was $50 more...these are Cherry...I've had Mahogany and Black prior...

    Recently added a set of KSF 8.5s to the stable joining my Forte IIs and Quartets. Almost every speaker has paled in comparison to the 3 way Klipsches, and with other two-way Klipsches (such as KG-4s and KG 5.5s) I've really missed the midrange. These KSF 8.5s don't seem to been all that highly regarded in relative terms, but I'm impressed. Balanced sounding and easy on the ears!

    I have a set of KG 5.5’s I bought new in 1997 or so. I deeply desire a pair of chorus II’s.

    CF4's version 3 cherry, sold. Sounded very good to me
    CF3's black version 1- unbelievable for 10" drivers
    KLF 20's crites upgrades black, not bad
    Forte 2 black, crites upgrades, Great sound for rock, impressive.
    CF4 version 2 med oak. I really can't hear a difference between these and the version 1's. I am driving them with 165-220 watt vintage receivers. Sansui G-22,000, Pioneer 1980, 1280, and 1250 etc,etc, all restored. I haven't rebuilt the crossovers yet, but intend to. I love the way these sound,lot's of bass. Horns deliver mids and highs perfectly for me. You can feel the drivers hitting you in the chest.
    CF4 version 1 oak - My favorites so far. The veneer on the cf 3's and 4's is still good but I'm considering re veneering a pair in claro walnut. I would attach a photo of veneer work on receivers if I could figure out how.

    had three pairs till recently. Down to one. Gave a pair to my son for rear channel, sold another pair to a neighbor who threatened to steal them.
    My last pair are relegated to the audio test bench. I know what to expect. One of my other neighbors was just stunned by em the other day.

    One of my older neighbors had a pair of klipsch horns powered by a big Marantz amp. He has to be deaf today.
