    Klipsch Forte II floorstanding loudspeakers FS, excellent condition

    I'm selling my pair of Klipsch Forte II's. I've owned them for about a year, I'm the 2nd owner. They're in excellent cosmetic condition, in light oak finish; they look like they just rolled off the factory floor last week even though they're from the early '90s. No rips or marks in the grills. Operationally 100%, I've never had a problem with them.

    I have the original boxes.

    Pictures:






    Price is $500 plus freight costs, firm.

    Free bump, but how is the quality on these??? Good for a HT setup or just party music???

    Any insight would be great but I've heard some good things about these puppies!!

    Hate to say it, but they're looking like they're sold on another forum...

    They'd be a good choice for a home theater setup, though. There are crossover mods out there that really improve the midrange performance - stock, there's a hump in the midrange that makes them sound a little too forward and brassy at high volumes, but a couple changes in component values fixes that.

    I am seriously considering traveling over 300 miles to buy the forte IIs that Jim J. has for sale. This is a very important purchase for me, so I was wondering what you meant by your comment

    "Makes me really wonder what Jim has up his sleeve...."

    Should I be worried about buying these speakers? Jim has only owned them for a year and says that he doesn't know their full history. Please respond.

    Why do you hate Klipsch? I have the Promedia 2.1s for my PC and they sound great, at least definitely worth $150

    I'm a hater.... No but seriously their new 'higher' end gear isn't much more than a crappy driver in a crappy box with some fancy paint or finishing.
