  1. I would do Crites 4500 hz mod takes the load off the midrange driver......get a pair of his tweeters. I painted my metal horns with rustoleom enamel helps with sound I think also put a little dynamax type stuff on the. I made some ALKs a long time ago to much money nothing different in my opinion. I sold them...lol If you decide to veneer them run some screws into the side boards to stiffen up those. 4 top and bottom should do it. I use O-rings on my mid driver cause that washer sticks out into sound path. A friend has industrials with the k-43 and it doesn't sound right. Does anyone have any information on what the K-43 does to LaScalas??????
  2. I still vote for veneer and make the dog hiuse look like a Belle. Here is pic of mine i didnt veneer the inside of dog house just sanded and stained with cherry stain. But this also gives you the chance to put some good screws in the side to stiffen the panels up. You can not even make mine move with a knee and hands. The veneer also helps stiffen the sides up also I think.
  3. OLD ...haaaaa. I use a 1970s HK 430 with 24 watts.........Sounds awesome on Heritage.
  4. YES it is but take bottom off and make sure the screws are not just loose. It also could be other stuff in the mid horn area rattling. Check all horn screws the crossover ,Mount..etc. Then check that is not the side walls of bass horn by putting a wood bar clamp on the front of it. Then you might want to look at Crites he has them and better cast frame ones also. I got cast frame ones for Ks. Prices-Other Stuff | Critesspeakers.com
  5. Get pool noodles for sealing corner. Get furniture grippers if they sit on hard smooth floor. The 4500 hz mod for crossover will help a lot. Loosen and retighten all screws on crossover. Make sure horn screws are tight. Bass bin needs sealing horizontally also with pool noodles.
  6. Maybe dampen the horn with sound dampening stuff??? Or maybe needs to be broken in some more. How old are they?
  7. I think price should be 600 to 1000 since the new ones are crazy prices. Where are they located. They look like they are in great shape so go high to start. You can pull that dent out of passive woofer with a vacum cleaner just be careful.
  8. Pic of stained top???? Those have some kind of finish on them. The problem is you need to find out if it oil,poly,laquer. Looks like grill has damage in that pic?? Yes they sold them RAW I have only seen a few that the owner left them that way, They are great looking RAW. You will see RAW Heresy's more often. The minty k Horns are gonna be more than 3000 i would say. Considering the crazy current price of K Horns these days. I told my sons when I die if they sell my K-Horns ask 4000 and no less for them. But that was years ago. Now I would tell them 5 to 6 thousand.
  9. If they have been clear coated you will have to lightly sand that off to repair water stain. Pics would help a lot. Another option is to get smoked glass tops made and just ignore the stain. If it was lacquered you would be in luck then cause the stain would be in the finish and not the wood. But Poly will have to be sanded.
  10. I would get it. But you may want to go with a solid state rectifier tube. Mine went out and I tried getting another one it went bad right away. So got a solid state one and great ever since. Those ST-70s sound awesome on klipsch.
  11. Klipsch Reference RF-52 II Speakers - electronics - by owner - sale (craigslist.org) I could pick these up for you and hold them pretty good deal.
  12. Save up more money.....then wait for RB series or Heritage series and then jump on any deal you find, Keep eye on FB...craigs list.
  13. My Heresy's I With extra panel on inside of back. Rebuilt crossovers. Lambs wool grills. I still enjoy listening o them. Best buy for the buck in audio.
  14. Cornwalls for sale in KC. I can pic them up for someone if they want them. KLIPSCH CORNWALL SPEAKERS- 1980 SEQUENTIAL - MINTY - electronics -... (craigslist.org)
