  1. Ended up going with the Fortes, quite a bit larger than the Heresys but still a good match with the Onkyo. However, there seems to be a little bit of pulsating bass sound from the passive rear woofers. A distance from wall issue?
  2. I can work with them as long as they aren't black. I'm more concerned about the sound quality differences though, if any?
  3. Zim - thanks for the advice. In a little over 24 hours, I've had an impressive response from my WTB CL ad. Currently, I have a guy willing to part with a pair of original Heresy for $400 (or less) and someone else that's willing to sell me a pair 1986 Forte I for $350 (or less). I've never heard the Forte, but from what I've briefly read they're better on the bottom end but not as detailed on the high end compared to the Heresy. Is this a fair assessment? Can I really go wrong either way? I'm going to be powering with a vintage Onkyo TX-4500, and I KNOW the Heresys sound wonderful with this setup. Thoughts?
  4. I'm looking for a pair of Heresys, originals or Heresy II. I'm in the Kansas City metro area and I'm willing to pay $400. Thanks!
  5. I would certainly prefer a pair of Heresy speakers over the 4.5s, but I haven't seen them anywhere near $400-500 (not recently), seems like the mean price on eBay is closer to $1000 and that's a bit out of my price range. Any other suggestions to buy besides craigslist and eBay?
  6. I'm in the market for Klipsch speakers and I came across a pair of KG 4.5 for $300 on CL that are in excellent condition. The guy is pretty firm on the asking price, and it seems like quite a bit more than others have paid for the same speakers lately. That being said, is $300 still a fair price (assuming they're truly in excellent condition)? Especially compared to buying new speakers, it seems like it's still a very good deal. I'm looking to power these with a vintage Onkyo TX-4500. I've read up a little bit on the KG 4.5's and it seems like the receiver/amp is important in order to not have treble issues.My dad bought the Onkyo TX-4500 new in the 70's along with Klipsch Heresy's, and the sound quality was incredible. Based on this, I'd think the TX-4500 will do just fine with the KG 4.5's. Thoughts?
