  1. I seem and heard the new Klipschorns at the Toronto Audio Fest. The setup was in a huge room with lots of competing noise in the background - the Klipschorns did not have a favorable corner setup - when I listened to a familiar recording, they still sounded excellent. I have 1985 K-horns and if there was a factory upgrade option (ie. to convert an older model to the latest model), I`d be interested. When I listen to K-horns, I compare them to real life sound (ie. playing in a Bluegrass jam) - many audiophiles who have not owned K-horns and have a casual listen tend to only compare the K-horn to other speakers not giving it a long term listening chance. I am looking forward to hearing the new Klipschorns at the 2020 Axpona for a longer listening session and will bring my own CD`s (maybe near the end of the day).
  2. I will be going from Toronto to Dayton Ohio on Nov 1st 2019 weekend in the case someone has K-77-M tweeters and one K-77 diaphragms for sale.
  3. I will be going to Dayton Ohio on Nov 1st 2019 weekend in the case someone has a single K-22-e 67 (Eminence)-8119 woofer for sale. Just looking for a spare as I really am fond of my restored Heresy speakers.
  4. I will be driving from Toronto to the Axpona 2019 show in Chicago in case anyone has some K-77-M tweeters and one K-77 diaphragms for sale.

  8. I will be driving to Nashville during the August 27th, 2018 week in case anyone has one of these for sale.

  10. The shipping prices from the US to Canada are high. I am looking at inexpensive options for now as this is an experiment to hear some K-77-M tweeters in the Heresy's.
  11. My restored Heresy 1's had the K-77-M tweeters and both voice coils are open. I had a set of spare K-77 tweeters and I am using in place of the K-77-M. I'd like to try a cheap experiment to rebuild the K-77-M and try them in the Heresy's in place of the K-77.
  12. I have two K-77-M tweeters and one K-77 tweeter that require diaphrams. I am checking if anyone in Canada has any for sale (Crites or Klipsch). I am also open to buying in the US along my road trips (Toronto to Texas around July 13th, 2018 and Toronto to North Adams on September 13th, 2018).
  13. My Heresy restoration project was a success and the sound quality of these speakers has exceeded my expectations! Thus, I am checking to see if anyone along my route of travels through the US (from Toronto to Lubbock around July 13 - 22, 2018 or Toronto to North Adams around September 13, 2018) has another K22-e woofer for sale. Specifically, the speaker with the dark woofer has the original K-22-e date code 67-8305 woofer and the other one has a K-22-e 67 (Eminence)-8119 - thus, I am looking for a woofer that will match one of these as close as possible. I haven't taken any frequency response measurements of each of the speakers yet and my ears perceive them to sound identical - the only reason I want a matching woofer is because I intend to keep the speakers and use them without grills. I also have the other original K-22-e date code 67-8305 woofer in case someone has an original Klipsch K-22-e recone kit (although I suspect this is unobtainium).
  14. The dust cap is a bit smaller on yours but otherwise, they look very close. I am interested in buying and PM sent. Thanks again for replying to the post and the pictures!
