  1. They would need to totally change the Heresy if they used the same mid horn as the CW IV mid horn would not fit (but you already knew that). I guess given the configuration, the Heresy III is the best center to use with the CW III.
  2. I'm using the CW IIIs along with a Heresy III (center channel) in a home theater. I am finding the timbre match excellent and the front soundstage seamless. I'm wondering if the match between the Heresy III and the Cornwall IV will be as good. And if not, is one relegated to going to three CW IVs if one wants a seamless front stage?
  3. So I'm using Dirac Live on the Cornwalls, and the bass sounds tight to me. I've been quite pleased with the sound but one always wonders...
  4. Yes Yes I'm in Massachusetts. Maybe someone nearby has some La Scalas that I can have a listen to as you suggest.
  5. What folks seem to be saying is that although La Scala doesn't plumb the depths, it is sufficient for many, and the bass has great tonal quality. Being a classical music fan, I don't think it would be sufficient for me. A 50hz cutoff misses the underpinnings of classical music. I guess the question is how a ported sub would blend with La Scala. The nearest Klipsch dealer is about 100 miles north, so I might have to take a day and make the trek.
  6. I've got a Monoprice 12" THX Ultra Certified sub for movies. It works well with the Cornwalls. I guess I'm having difficulty understanding how the Scalas horn loaded bass will work with a ported sub and whether I am losing the magic of the fully horn loaded speaker by going that route. And whether I'll need a sub to enjoy my music.
  7. So I have been enjoying a pair of Cornwall IIIs and am thinking of upgrading to La Scalas. I am a classical music lover and have enjoyed the Cornwalls bass, which in room measures to about 30hz. (I am running Dirac Live). I am concerned that the Scalas only go to around 50 and thus I will lose the bottom octave of my music. Is this how low the Scala will go and if so, is a subwoofer the only way to get response to 30hz? I would appreciate any thoughts on this.
  8. I spoke with Klipsch customer support today. They said that the new Heresys have the four screws attaching the woofer. I also checked out a video on the Capitol Anniversary Heresy on Youtube and that too only had four screws. So all is well.
  9. Thanks. I will call Klipsch today and see what’s up.
  10. Just got a new Heresy iii to use as a center channel between Cornwall iiis and noticed that the woofer is mounted with only four screws. Is this normal? Thanks.
  11. Give the NAD M10 a look. Lots of inputs, streaming capability (including Qobuz at hi res), and Dirac Live. Very clean and quiet digital amp.
  12. Fuirther evidence that the original poster either had a defective unit or defective setup: http://www.ultimateavmag.com/avreceivers/705outlaw/
  13. The End of the Story... I just received a check for $785 from the UPS store. I am amazed at how this has turned out and I still have the speakers, which I have begun reapairing. So to all you UPS naysayers: it does turn out OK on occasion.
  14. Thanks, guys. Too bad it didn't work like vbulletin. Oh well.
  15. Probably not the right place but it is somewhat technical in nature. Maybe I'm dumb. But is it possible to have a setting here when reading posts to just view new posts? I'd like to be taken directly to a view of posts since my last visit, but can't seem to find a switch. Thanks.

The main choice for us in LCD or Plasma was for one the price.. Plasma was way more money and for too. I hear plasma TVS only last like 4-5 years and then there done and you have to throw them out where as the LCD the bulb can go bad and you just replace it for around $75 and your back in biz. ---------------- For the record, a plasma will last way longer tha 4 to 5 years. The half life (brightness) of a screen is like 30,000 hours. If you view tv 5 hours a day, the plasma will give you a minumum of 16 years viewing time. And the image should still be serviceable at half brightness as the contrast and brightness are jacked way too high at 0 anyway.

I know exactly what is in the back, I've been using a 7 speaker setup (and true 7 channel surround processing.. something most have only gotten in the last year or two with DPLIIx) for around 7 years. And have done so with a variety of different surround speakers... including mono-poles, di-poles and bi-poles. Shawn ---------------- Shawn, For 7 channel sound, then, you don't notice any "timbre" differences on movies and music? I wouldn't think so, but just checking. Thanks.

Would that be a problem?
  19. Great responses, guys. Thanks. The thought of a pair of Heresys hanging from the rear wall would be a bit much for even my very accomodating wife to accept!
  20. I have 5 Heresys in a 5.1 arrangement and would like to add two rear speakers for 7.1. I understand that 2 more Heresys would be ideal, but my chairs are about 4 feet out from the back wall in an 18 foot long room, and frankly, 2 more Heresys in the rear would not work (the side Heresys are laying on their side and are on bookcases about 6.5 feet high). My rear wall simply will not accomodate 2 more Heresys. Given that the rear surrounds are mainly going to provide ambience and more of an enveloping sound compared to a 5 channel system, can anyone recommend any non-Heritage speakers that will work with the 5 Heresys and be more easily accomodated on the rear wall? I understand that a perfect timbre match is impossible, but feel that the benefits of 7.1 (even without matching rears) are superior to a 5 channel system. Any thoughts?
  21. They will sing as one if placed that way, tweeter to tweeter. There are many designs that use a similar layout.

Maybe you were only 98% sure? ---------------- Tony, i just tried to tell you what UPS did to me when i had some damage to my shippment. glad you got to keep them. Russ ---------------- Yeah, I know. You guys got me so spooked out, when the results were a bit different, I wanted to share. I'm pretty happy with the outcome. I've ordered some oak veneer for the box that's salvageable, and will keep the other box for parts, unless I get adventurous over the spring and build a new box for that one. I ordered 5 new grills from Klipsch (only $35 a piece) so I'll have 5 matching oak heresy IIs when all is said and done! I've begun refinishing them (they're oiled oak) and the first one came out great! This has turned into more fun than I imagined.

They came crushed and dented. UPS picked them up about two weeks later. About six months after that - after who knows how many phone calls to various stations around the country - one finally returned. The other one had disappeared. This began another round of battles while I tried to prove that one speaker is not much fun when you were looking for stereo. UPS contended that since they only lost one, they only owed me for half the insurance. Same thing happened with a 35 mm motion picture print. UPS lost reels 1,2 and 3, but delivered reels 4,5 and 6. So they felt they only needed to reimburse us for half the insured value. Naturally enough the distributor, Disney, felt half a movie was not better than none and made us cover the other $300. I could go on, but it's time to go home. Rumor has there is a vast warehouse in Colorado somewhere that all UPS damaged material goes to and employees of the company are allowed to go in and help themselves. This is probably an "urban legend," but I thought I'd repeat it anyway. ---------------- Hey Captain, Just got off the phone with the UPS store in San Rafael and UPS is paying the claim. He's already got one check (for one speaker) and is expecting the other this week. He said he'd be mailing me the check by the end of the week. So far, so good.
