  1. This is the better album cover: https://www.discogs.com/Joey-Heatherton-Joey-Heatherton/release/2518215
  2. Are you getting the distortion in both speakers? If so, be assured of a good source by trying a couple of CDs that you know to be of good quality. I would be surprised that it is a crossover if distortion is in both speakers. If it is in one speaker, try what Schu suggested but disconnect one speaker at a time to isolate the sound.
  3. Check out "About Me" in my profile. Does this qualify me as Klipsch Lifer? Just added this to show a little humor!
  4. The KG4 and the Heresy were marked 4 ohm but will also work with 8 ohm. I ran my KG4 and Heresy 8 ohm.Try both and see which you like
  5. Hello, that amp dates from 1974. Do you know if it has been gone over by a tech? If not, you should use deoxit on all of the pots and twist them left and right several times. Take the cover off so you can get at the pots. If that doesn't correct it, you probably have one or more components going bad.
  6. If it is instrumental, I will listen to it. I enjoy classical a lot but also enjoy what used to be called "elevator music." Especially fond of piano from "ragtime" to classical compositions. Richard Clayderman is very relaxing for me because of the orchestral arrangements that support him.. Thx.
  7. Spent a lot of time over the weekend dialing in the new speakers that replaced the forte IIIs. There is a difference between the two that I didn't anticipate. I had to reduce the output of the subs to about half of what they were running at before. Same system so I don't understand the change. Biggest change is in the treble sound; the raspiness of the IIIs with the violin is gone and the sound is much cleaner. Subs are crossed over at 80Hz, allowing the IVs to produce all but the lower range and they do a great job. I listen to mostly instrumental music and the speakers do well with guitar and piano. Very well balanced and nice soundstage. So far I am pleased and find the investment to be worthwhile. Frank
  8. I think that you have a hopeless situation there with the specialized connectors that you have. I looked at the manual. What are you using to connect to the sub? Is it Yamaha also?
  9. Most subs have two inputs and two outputs. If it is a newer sub, it will have an LFE input which bypasses the crossover.That would be used for the main system, the other input/output could be used for the small amp. In my system I am using the LFE input for the home theater. The other input is used for my McIntosh integrated amp for two-channel listening and uses the crossover in the sub. If you have only one sub, since bass is nondirectional and in pre/pros the bass is summed, use of a Y connector is generally the method used.
  10. Without knowing the front end, line in to sub, line out to amp, sub doing the crossover.
  11. While waiting for the forte iv to arrive, I discovered how good the Heresy IIIs sound. The IIIs have been used for center channel duty for some time so it was good to let them open up and produce some full sound. They mate very well with my SVS SB-2000 subs. Very pleased!
  12. I would recommend the SB-2000 Pro. They have a little more output to match the sensitivity of the Heresy. I use them with my forte III and they are a nice match.
  13. Speakers are sold and ordered the forte IV.
  14. My favorite genre would be well-recorded piano. I especially enjoy Richard Clayderman but listen to many other artists from classical to easy listening, some latin american as well. The forte III do an excellent job of reproducing the sound, no bird warbling.
  15. Your receiver has four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. Use the inputs to connect your devices (DVD player? Cable box?, etc) Come HDMI out of your devices to the HDMI inputs on the receiver. Run an HDMI cable from the output of the receiver to the HDMI input on the TV. Select the input on the TV that produces the picture. Another way to do this is to run the outputs of your devices to the HDMI inputs on the TV and then run a cable ARC to an input on the receiver. You may PM me and I will help you by telephone if you wish.
