  1. I came across this auction in my searches it is a very early model H the precursor to the H700 and eventually the Heresy. It has all three drivers in it. I am sure it could be cleaned up I have not seen one this old for auction before. Would make a nice collectors item for sure. It has the University tweeter in it. I would jump on it but I am already trying to sell the speakers that I already have. It would make a nice center channel speaker conversation piece for sure. https://www.ebay.com/itm/255546396618?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160811114145%26meid%3D9b5ee9e804e648ea99d1165e57db7ac6%26pid%3D100667%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D363848927488%26itm%3D255546396618%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2334524%26brand%3DKlipsch&_trksid=p2334524.c100667.m2042
  2. I was the first to try Popbumpers Academy network and it literally transformed it. I had a lengthy post back them that I titled "An Academy Tale" the stock network is an obvious compromise. The detail and clarity really increased with his network installed keep in mind is did not come cheap but it is worth it. I know which one I would choose between the stock network and the K-Stack.
  3. Here is the schematic for the Academy crossover network. You also have to take into consideration that many, many movie soundtracks are just mixed horribly there are some that I struggle to hear the dialogue on and I have a La Scala center with the best components and network. Updating the network components will make a difference if you use high quality parts not the mediocre crap from JEM or Crites. Here is a comparison between Popbumpers K-Stack and the stock network for comparison. Guess which one sounds better.
  4. I have a pair of Heresy Industrial HIP's I do not have the means to box and ship these but would be willing to drop them off to a pack and ship place for a buyer.
  5. Not a chance. I had an all Klipschorn HT for awhile now that was overkill. Slowly started downgrading to Belle's, then La Scala's now La Scala's Cornwall's and Heresy HIP's. No such thing as too much. It will sound phenomenal.
  6. This is not true regardless of open or closed backs the Klipschorn still needs a solid corner with ~ 4ft on either side of it to perform to listed specifications. That will never change and is listed right in the documentation. Don't believe still ask Trey Cannon and he will confirm it for you.
  7. They have the steel stamped frame K-42 woofers, the K-55M midranges with the 8 hole K-700 horn, and the K-77M tweeter and the HIE networks stock. I would also take some a/d/s L-980, L-880, L400 or L300 series speakers as partial trade.
  8. Sorry, no spare drivers or crossovers they are all being utilized. I just sold my spare K-42/EVM-12L woofer as well. All the bigger Heritage have top notch networks, new wiring, and gold plated spade lugs. My signature has what is currently in them.
  9. Yes Burlington, VT area. I am willing to drive a reasonable distance to meet a buyer. I actually want to sell my entire speaker system for $5900 and that includes all the Klipsch speakers including these HIP's. So three La Scala's, two Cornwall's, and four Heresy HIP's. All in excellent condition. I just am looking to downsize considerably.
  10. I am reluctantly offering one pair of my Heresy HIP's for sale. They are in excellent condition and are from 1985 I am offering them locally since shipping them would be extremely cost prohibitive. I will have some photos up this evening as I have to size them down for this forum. I even have the plastic bottom pole mounts for them as well. They had easy duty as my side surround speakers I moved my Front Effects HIP's into there role and will be using something different for my Front Effects. Looking to get $750 for the pair as they are not that common especially in good to very good condition and fully functional. (Photo below for likeness, same style and layout)
  11. No it will not match efficiency or tone wise not even close.
  12. This is being offered in my local area if anyone has any interest. If it does not sell at the asking price they typically give an option to submit an offer if it still doesn't sell by the second day of the sale everything drops to 50% off. It all looks to be in stellar shape but I think the omnidirectional speakers are not CS-99's. Very unique vintage set up. One thing to note though is this receiver uses a very unique and proprietary to Pioneer speaker input plug. If they do not have them it may be difficult to source a set but a quick scan of eBay shows at least a couple may be available. Just thought I would pass that on to someone who may not be familiar with the unit. https://shop.estatesalesandconsignments.com/lot-86-vintage-pioneer-qx-99-receiver-and-4-cs-99a-surround-sound-speakers-stk-129811-880/
  13. I have an excellent condition Klipsch KV-3 center channel speaker finished in black satin. It does have some very light scratches on the bottom from where it rubbed against the TV stand legs and a few other little marks here and there but otherwise very presentable. It is over 20 years old after all. All the drivers are original and functioning as they should. The grill and klipsch emblem are also in great shape. The adjustment rod on the back is there with the rubber foot still in place. I have the original carton and user manual for it. I am missing like one or so of the solid corner foam pieces to keep it in place in the box but I will be adding additional packing to secure it for shipping. Looking to get $125 plus associated shipping costs for it. Originally intended to mate with the Epic series of speakers CF-1, CF-2, CF-3 but others have used it in different applications with some level of success.
  14. That is a Decorator Klipschorn KD-BR = Klipsch Decorator, Birch Raw. All the same sound with a basic enclosure and partial top hat section.
  15. Yep beat to hell. The grain in the wood makes them look more like oak than walnut. Shame they were so mistreated.
  16. Dog piss on the side grills and lots of moisture damage what a joke.
  17. Yep, nothing but crap in the box unfortunately. I bought a Klipsch KSW-15 many years ago and paid top dollar for it and it was junk. Sorry but subwoofers are not Klipsch's forte' (pun intended). I stick with Velodyne as they have a more solid subwoofer reputation.
  18. Those feet are put on at the factory so they can slide around the cement floor and are not really intended to be permanent. Go to WalMart and find some similarly sized grippers (they are used for furniture) and replace the metal caps with them.
  19. Incomplete and totally thrashed. $300
  20. Thanks, I sent the link to my brother in law in Texas.
  21. It is the recording. Many these days are over saturated and will cause the issue that you are explaining. You need a compressor to tame it because they recorded it at too high a level.
  22. Don't forget the stage trapezoidal enclosure and pro models like the Heresy Industrial (HI), (HI-SM), Heresy Industrial Ported (HIP), (HIP-SM) and then the Heresy II version of the Pro's KP-250, etc. They are too many to keep up with. I love the HIP's the best while the bass extension drops in 85Hz range they have ferocious mid-bass with great impact, the mids and highs run wide open which makes them perfect for my Front Effects and Side Surround positions since they pick up every little nuance or sound making for a phenomenal theater experience. That said the newest ones are very refined and improved and the price you pay for them won't be cheap but they are designed to last a lifetime.
  23. Looks like a single, may want to clarify what they are selling.
  24. I replaced my Pro Media 2.1 satellites with far better ones and now it really sounds great. Spend the extra money and find yourself a pair of a/d/s L200's you wont be sorry. I swapped out my satellites for a pair and I won't be going back. These sound way larger than the are and add additional bass response. They are pictured below without their metal grills on.
