    Heresy II Cabinet Separating

    When we were in Hope at the factory I think I saw them putting same foam in the new ones. So probably supposed to be there. I have never opened up a set of IIs so not sure. While got them apart you could replace capacitors. I would also put glue on all the blocks in both of them.

  3. How vintage and what do you have powering them??? Before buying new ones make sure amp is OK. You could sell the other good one probably.

    Veneer maintenance for my Khorns

    I think you should put them in the corners you got. The way you got them sitting blocks half of the output of the bass bin can't be good. Looks like you got corners there to use. Use pipe foam to seal vertical back and horizontal parts of bass bin you will be impressed with the sound improvement.

    Bob Crites "Prime "

    Yea I have ordered some stuff from Bob and always got it fast. I always recommend him to friends and he answers questions even if not buying stuff. 5 stars to Bob Crites. I wished I could get 50% of his type of service from other companies....NOT EVER GOING TO HAPPEN. Well I take that back I have had some companies meet Bobs standards....Delta motorsports......LMC truck.....Victoria British......Moss motors.....and a few others.

    Forte II’s in the House!

    Oiled Oak seems to get bad rap but I love it. I originally wanted oak K-Horns but ended up with walnut...lol. The Forte needs to be out fromthe wall so not sure if they are more room friendly.
  8. I would call Cory or look at Accessories4less first.
  9. Love the Turntable what is the model ???

    Cornwall Audition Denver

    Try some furniture grippers on the bottom of them. Might need new caps in them also....Bob has good ones or you could replace with new crossover from him. Welcome!! If your ever in market for new call Cory from the forum...also a Klipsch page on FB.

I dont think the older ones were getting blown by to much power but from poor amplifiers. While to much power will blow anything and Klipsch put those diodes in to protect them from an awesome warranty plan. I think it sounds better with out the diodes in the crossover. I think the ''For Life Warranty '' was a good idea but there will always be people abusing it. I bet it sold a lot of speakers though...lol
  12. Doesn't the LaScala II have a new tweeter in it already?? But I did change mine in my K-Horns f that helps. Doesn't the owner have original tweeters for them also???

    Value of Lascalas / Belles?

    If you A- B a Belle and a LaScala they dont sound the same. Especially on female voices it shows up very well. Hence the reason I bought LaScalas new in 1980.
