  1. Driving from Little Rock to New Orleans on Wednesday Nov 27. Anyone along the route interested in buying these let me know thanks
  2. BamaMike . Understand no worries on the grills I used the original Klipsch Masonite grill
  3. Update. Traveling from Little Rock to New Orleans for Thanksgiving. If anyone on that route is interested in buying these puppies speak now or forever hold you peace.
  4. Thanks. My material is the small weave. Yours look great. Good luck with project.
  5. Yes fabric is from mojotone. I sprayed 3M 77 adhesive on frame back and edges and edges of cane and stretched by hand and then used 1/4” staples ad nauseum. Hot glue doesn’t work well on the cane.
  6. Here are pics of back of grill frame showing magnets without and with thin black felt applied to protect finish on front board.
  7. On the neo magnets I recessed and epoxied (is that a word?) 7 3/8” diameter neo magnets from Madisound in the front baffle which is covered by veneer. I epoxied 7 to the back of original Klipsch grill frame and then recovered grill with tan cane material. When you insert the grill in the front recess the magnets grab the frame and hold tight. I applied very thin self adhesive felt on the grill magnets so they don’t scratch front. Im out of town now and don’t have pics of the back of grill frames to show magnets. I’ll post next week. No ugly Velcro showing when you remove grills to see the veneered baffles. Rockhound finally convinced me to redo his industrial Heresys.
  8. Thanks for the compliment! I’ve done that in the past but this time thought I would just keep it with the original posts and whoever buys them can change it over.
  9. DUH!! Forgot to mention I reinstalled trim lip around the front with veneer on the inside of the trim for those who want to leave the grill frame off. BTW the black mark on the back left speaker is not on the speaker but on the speaker by mistake using Paint. Don't know how to remove it! Also forgot I shot more nails in the joints before veneering so cabinet is stout. My motto "If in doubt, build it stout"!
  10. Finally finished this project. I've posted on this in Tech Mod section on the build. I totally removed all finish on these, cut off the front 1/2" edge that surrounds the grill frame, installed neo magnet on the front to mate with the magnets I installed on the original grill frame (with new cane grill cloth), veneered the fronts, sides, and tops with aircraft grade quartered figured etimoe veneer. I applied 6 coats of wipe on poly satin then wet sanded and applied wax with 0000 steel wool for a very smooth finish. I installed a front to back brace with 3 screws on the back panel, installed new Bob Crites 1228 woofers, new Sonicap caps on the mids and tweets, new electrolytic parallel cap on the woofers, installed foam sealant tape on the back screw strips. I have two emblems that come with these which I haven't attached yet so the new owner can do so with his/her choice of glue/tape. Consecutive serial numbers 139X001 and 139X002 The grill frames automatically attach when you put them on the fronts. Components are Crites 1228 woofers, K52H mid drivers and square maGNET K-77 tweets. Someone needs to give these a new home!!! Perfect Christmas gift! Will post more photos after I resize them. $750.00. I'm located in Little Rock. Thanks. Longdrive03 Longdrive03
  11. I have a pair of H1s ive reveneered in quartered figured etimoe veneer with new Crites 1228 woofers and new Sonicap caps with new cane grill cloth. I will post to show more tomorrow. I’m in Little Rock. Will post pics tomorrow.
  12. Anyone know the model number and specs? Thanks.
  13. Eminence 121630B, JAY5120, 67-0433C 0877 anyone have any idea or guess?
  14. Endo. Pardon my failure to post clearly. Duh!! these have all components and grills These have Klipsch Type E crossovers and I am Recapping with Sonicap caps. The grills are included which have neo magnets. I plan to replace the cane grill material which has one spot on each grill Unless someone wants them as they are. Here is a pic of one crossover with new caps to be installed. I’ll post pics tomorrow or pm me and can email. I can’t resize photos on my iPhone. Thanks
  15. I posted about these in the Tech Mod section. Here's the link detailingT he redo. I may not attend the reunion this year (I live in Little Rock) but may send these with a friend for anyone to see/hear/buy. Just bought and installed brand new Crites 1228 woofers with new Sonicap caps. Grill frame is magnetic. Veneer on the front board as well with bracing inside. Price is $775.00 Thanks Longdrive03
  16. Thanks guys. I just bought new Crites 1228 woofers for these. I'm going to list them in the for sale area and maybe have a friend bring them to the reunion if anyone is interested.
  17. Rockhound, Kinda hit a slow spell due to cold wet weather and burnout. I got these final sanded and waxed with steel wool and they're slicker than a boil onion. Just need to get the new Crites woofers and install components. A local friend might want to trade for two pair of beat up Heresys. Need to clean up the shop ( I think I have a tablesaw in there somewhere) and get crackin. A friend wants me to build some small towers for him so that might be my motivation
