    Working Man's Heresy

    Very good deal.....I would put a seal on back panel...put in new caps.....I re-enforced the access panel on the inside by adding a layer of ply I could feel it move before not now though. Its even better since Andy built them is there an A on the edge on the back I think thats his mark.

    I thought I had pic of ST-70with cover off I will try to get one for you.

    I got one that was rebuilt and works great. Get it checked out or refreshed by a tech to be on safe side. I dont think you need to worry about the house voltage but one of these would be good idea....https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002YDZWO/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_7?smid=A284PRV19Y1MTF&psc=1 I got mine using a 1970s hk 630 reciever as pre amp. works fine running LaScalas.

    Heresy troubleshooting

    Those capacitors look like crappy ones and the coils = '''transformers''' never go bad. Heres the schematic for it. Notice the polarity on tweet and squawker.

    Heresy troubleshooting

    Sounds like the source is causing it.....are you using separates source pre-amp .amp??? If they sounded fine at sellers house only thing that changed was the source material right ?

    life alert or alert1

    Sorry to hear that....I had gout in my wrist I would not wish that on anyone well almost anyone..lol. It hurts so bad made my transplant look like a walk in the park. Doc asked on a scale 1-10 I said your scale does not go high enough I said 18 or hit your hand with a hammer if he wants a reference. Hope your dad is better soon.
  8. Take them back then call Cory and order a new set. What is the source of the sound ? Could be the source causing it.

    Stereo, Amp suggestions for KLF30

    I would look for a 1970s HK 430 or HK 630 they sound awesome. If you want new look at Accessories 4less ….you can get AVR and just run 2 channels. I would recommend this one it has phono and pre outs for future power amp if you do that. https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/intdtr404/integra-dtr-40.4-7.2-ch-x-110-watts-thx-a/v-receiver/1.html

    Worried about RP-600m port

    Newer is not always better take it from most of us with older Klipsch. I got 1972 k-horns ..1980 LaScalas.....I bought my son a pair of RB-35s and I would put them up against almost any new Klipsch bookshelf they have now. They should have kept the RB 35 and RB 81s I think. If you dont think RB35s are good just try and find a pair for sale.

    I got an Akia GX F-71 3 head deck from Crutchfield and it still kicks butt.

    khorn woofer help please

    Looks like you found it out. Just get Crites stock woofers and move on I would say. Try and sell the other ones I'm pretty sure you can sell the k-33 easy not sure about other one. I would always replace in pairs unless you want to get a square magnet K-33 one off ebay or from a forum member.
