  2. Go get them before they are "gone." Either ones would be perfect. The extra $200 for the 4.5's maybe worth it because they have titanium tweeters (new about $60/pr) ,new crossovers ($200?) and are "pristine." Opening a bottle of wine to celebrate Cheers! Add-on ... pretty sure this guy takes care of his equipment. Note there is a reel to reel in the pic

  5. Welllllll, crank it up and kick back. Think she'll have some new outfits for that grand? Now get up and turn it up some more. You'll make it! i've got 17 new lp's laying here to unzip. I can guarantee I'll never be w/o a second table again. I'm going nuts!

  9. Hahahaha I'm sitting here laffing at you guys. Emile gets the bonus points and the medal though. For service above and beyond the call of duty! 😂 🤘 @jubilee333 IF you can get him to audition some hip hop I'll award him an oak leaf cluster too! Keep us posted. Check them out WELL before you hit him w/your deal. He's gonna buy new wire anyway so snag all you can get. You'll be stepping up to those LS in no time! REMEMBER PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE!

  11. Great minds think alike...also another pair of the 4.2 in Gainesville. That Kenwood can power 4 and still leave a little room for dancing...the bump...☺️ Cheers!

  12. @jubilee333 Great! If the 4.2's are not in great shape, pick up the 4.5's. FYI, they are basically the same speaker. Note that the 4.2 shows "two" woofers, but it really is only "one." The other one is a "passive" woofer without a voice coil. In the 4.5 they replaced the passive with a port (haha; "hole").

  16. I forgot to say, none of the three speakers is "better" or "more preferable", they´re just different, that´s how i would put it.

  18. The KGs will have more bass, the Heresies will have more finesse and detail. For what You want, the KGs are better suited, IMO.

  19. Amps come in 2 different versions - tubes vs SS (solid state). Think we can forget about tube amps for you Usually best to match the speaker (watts) rating with the amp output - but even a 30W amp on a 100W speaker is OK. Do not overpower the speakers as you will FRY them Newer amps are usually rated at their published watts level; vintage amps normally have a higher actual watts level than their published rating. Most residential Klipsch speakers can be powered with amps 20-100W. Pro speakers are usually 300W and up. They require pro amps of 300W and up. More power usually gives you a tighter bass response and faster (tighter) high/low transients. Speaker boxes are usually 2 or 3-way, meaning they have internal electronics (i.e crossovers) to split the incoming signal to 2 (or 3) internal speakers (bass/mid/high) which require different frequency ranges. A 2-way speaker may have a low frequency range from 20-800Hz and a high range of 800-20kHz. Good hi-fi speakers, such as Klipsch, have balanced the box dimensions/ports with the characteristics of the low/mid/high speakers and corresponding crossovers. Hope this helps Cheers, Emile

  27. Haha; never saw it because I looked at "my" link. Same seller; he has listed the 4.2's separately for $300 and with the amp for $500

  28. The Kenwood is the Tampa link I posted earlier here for 5. Package deal. At least, probably has preouts but not needed likely. Sure the pair should do it.

  29. BTW, that blemish is from a glass of bourbon, scotch or other distilled spirit. Easy matter to duplicate it on the other speaker, if you prefer.

  31. This started out at 700. Pretty positive that the 300 dollars is the same one in this package deal. Good enough to sprinkle your feet and, after audition, your room size and listening level, may be well suited for a decent starter plug and play. Don't forget guys the Tractrix type horn, should rock sweet and blow the Polks...: https://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/ele/d/riverview-vintage-kenwood-and-klipsch/7392202242.html

  32. @jubilee333Re above ... KG's are very good, but more an introductory speaker than Heresies. As per @AndreG."The KGs will have more bass, the Heresies will have more finesse and detail. For what You want, the KGs are better suited, IMO." They are less refined but probably better suited for your purpose - and less expensive I started with new Cornwalls about 30 years ago and have added KG's, etc etc. My KG4.2's were really great. PM me a link to the ones you found and I'll give you my opinion. For in home DJ parties they may be your best option And, you are welcome to check out my speakers. But ... only have Heresies and much LARGER speakers ... really cannot give you a comparison And if you take me up on my offer DO NOT bring any hip hop Cheers, Emile Re my opinion on the Forte's ... had a set and tried to combine them with (pro) K-510/K691 horns. Never got it to work ... the Forte's were just anemic in that combination.

  36. Tom, I'm VERY interested in these. I live in central Jersey, so about a 3 hour drive to pick them up. This is my first post on the forum, but I've been an avid reader since I joined about 18 mo ago. I've learned a lot from you and all the other members ... I was just about to begin a LS clone build based on all the great advice here. However, having your speakers would definitely put that build on the backburner. As your channeling PWK suggests "Why not make your next pair of speakers your last pair of speakers?" I'm a long-time Klipsch fan and owner ... bought my first pair in the '80s. KG5.2s. They are still going strong and I listen to them daily. Have not yet had a pair of Heritage speakers ... hence my plan for an LS build. BUT, your speakers would put me two levels above the LS! I don't believe I can PM you as I don't have enough posts, but perhaps you can PM me if they are still available? They will go to a very good home! Thanks! Steve.

  37. That LP and the anthemic, heavy ballad kinds of sounds were a surprise to me. The fact that they still sounded like themselves told me they pulled off the crossover to the "regular" side of FM.

  43. back in the 70s, I dropped some acid on the way to the Los Angeles International Airport. I was flying to Detroit. Got in the first line that I saw and it turned out to be some foreign airline that wasn't going to Detroit. Tried to buy a beer during lunch; but they asked for ID and I was only 18. Bought a MAD magazine, boarded my flight, and read every word of that issue. Can't recall what I read; but I think I laughed out loud. Thank God that I didn't freak out ... I don't recommend LSD and jet airliners.

  44. So... I was reading today, that 4% of nurses in the US are from the Philippines. Mostly because the US set things up for them to supply the country with workers at the end of WWII.
