  1. I edited the crossover type - it was the HIE. I copied / pasted the specs from something I found on the internet. It is the K42-E driver. Pics attached.
  2. I talked to the auction house and the shipping cost would be quite extensive. Plus, THEY wouldn't pack and ship them - I would have to send someone else over to do it. I knew a guy in the area who was about an hour drive from the auction location but even if he picked them up I still had the problem of shipping them to Texas. I'm glad that someone else in this group ended up with them. Given the unknown resale value I was hesitant to put up too much money for these. I was interested in the Spendor s8e as well, but I had the same problem with shipping these also.
  3. Thanks for the comment and request. I'll open them up later this evening and take a look at the exact drivers and post pictures.
  4. I've read posts here on this forum claiming that the HIPs are the best sounding Heresy ever made. This is the original Heresy HIP with the black textured finish. Sound is great, the finish needs a bit of touch-up paint, but nothing that can't be fixed with some paint. I recently bought some LaScalas and don't have anything left to play these on or a room where I could set them up. I really don't want to sell them because they sound FANTASTIC - just not as good as the LaScalas. My wife says I have the speakers I want in the media room (LaScalas) and bedroom (Chorus), but the living room is forced to use a lesser speaker that doesn't sound as good because the looks blend into the decor better. As great as these sound, "blending in" aesthetically is not one of the strong attributes of these. Asking $700 for the pair.

  5. I have a chance to get a pair of Sequerra NFM-PRO speakers. There is also a larger set of Sequerra speakers that appear to be a "Signature" model. Are these decent? Worth buying with the purpose of reselling? I don't know if I would have room for the large ones in my listening room. I'd have a space for the small ones of course.
  6. I thought the filters could be bypassed. I've never used this amp so I'm not sure. In the spec sheet it said " The crossover can be bypassed to feed the amplifier directly from the subwoofer output of an A/V preamplifier, processor, or receiver." http://assets.klipsch.com/product-specsheets/ka-1000-thx-spec-sheet.pdf If I found one of these amps used at a decent price I'd like to try it in my theater. I'm using a QSC pro amp in bridged mono for my sub currently.
  7. Use just ONE of the RCA inputs. I've seen this happen with identical signals that are out of phase because they cancel each other out.
  8. I have one of those I could sell you. Nothing wrong with it - took it out of a system where they had upgraded to a larger unit. If you haven't bought it yet send me a message.
  9. Why do you say it's discontinued? From the Klipsch website it doesn't say anything about that and lists a price along with availability. http://www.klipsch.com/products/ka-1000-thx-amplifier
  10. I bought a paid of LaScalas recently from the original owner who purchased them in the mid 70s. The cabinets were in good shape but even causal listening told me that something was off with the tweeters. I am going to need to get new diaphragms, rebuild parts of the crossover or both. I have a pro AV company and I have a QSC CX168 laying around and a Biamp Nexia DSP. Rather than rebuilding the crossovers I was thinking about bypassing the stock crossover and using the Nexia as a crossover. I could bridge a few of the channels on the QSC amp so I could drive the woofer with a bridged channel (260w @ 8 ohm) and the mid and high each get 90w @ 8 ohm. The 8 channel amp would give me 2 channels at 260w and 4 channels at 90w. Using the Nexia would allow me to pick any value as the crossover point, any slope and have full phase control as well. What are the group's thoughts about doing this? Has anyone does this before? What are the potential drawbacks that I might not be thinking about? Patrick
  11. I've sent Roy a message and he responded to me. He wants to review a drawing of the room, so I sent it to him. My thanks to him in advance for his recommendation.
  12. Why not use the Klipsch KA-1000-THX subwoofer amplifier? It seems like a good match for those subs?
  13. I have a job with a fairly large conference center (100' x 100') where the consultant designed the system with ceiling speakers. It has been installed per the consultant design and the end user isn't happy with it. The problem is that the ceiling is very high (25') and the dispersion of the speakers at that height is such that it is feeding back sound right into the microphones on the stage. We are not able to get enough microphone gain into the speakers without going into feedback. I proposed a solution using surface mounted "box" style speakers that could be mounted on the ceiling in front of the stage aiming toward the back of the room. With the speakers being directional there should be very little sound coming back to the stage. I need a throw of around 80' to get to the back of the room. I intend to use the speakers for speech only. I have 2 channels at 250w 70v each available. I want to have a wide horizontal dispersion to cover the room but a narrow vertical dispersion to prevent sound coming back onto the stage. My question is this - what speakers should I use? We are new Klipsch Pro dealers and I'm not as familiar with Klipsch speakers as other brands. I'm considering the KI-102-T-SMA-II or the CA-800T. Both have a 60w tap. There is a fairly substantial price difference between the two with the KI-102 being much more expensive. What are the factors that might cause one speaker to work better vs the other. Which would be the better choise? Klipsch CA-800-T-Spec-Sheet.pdf Klipsch KI-102-SMA-II-Data-Sheet-v08.pdf
  14. I think a small admission fee ~$5 would give a perception of more "value" and help with revenue also. I would be willing to volunteer what time I have to the cause.
  15. If you're not keeping them, where are you and what do you want for them? I have a pair that cosmetically are a bit beat up, but they sound great.
  16. Is the idea for the museum to be free or would admission generate revenue?
  17. Yes - by "them" I was referring to a single cabinet with 2 drivers. Didn't mean to confuse anyone. Should have said "it" instead of them. Anyone interested?
  18. I love the positive comments, but I still have them and I'm moving soon and don't want to have to find a storage building for these when I move. Anyone interested?
  19. I had them set up where they were flat down to around 30hz with some help from a parametric EQ. These are meant to pump out a LOT of bass for a commercial movie theater, but with the right setup they can be some pretty powerful subs in a traditional home theater. I have 2 kids now and I haven't really sent a good signal through them in almost 5 years. I'm moving and downsizing so these need to find another home.
  20. This is from their cinema series but I've seen it used in pro sound as well - both touring and installations. I had it in my home theater. Back when I was single I could really rock out watching movies. But now with kids I rarely have a chance to really get it breathing. I am going to be moving as well so I don't have room for it at the new house. EDIT - I already moved and I've had these sitting in storage for over a year. They need a home. Local pickup in the Dallas area only. There's no way I'm going to even try to ship this thing. $400 OBO each cash only.

  21. SOLD I have finally finished restoring the Heresy speakers I bought from an estate sale a few months ago. These are vintage Klipsch Heresy I speakers with consecutive serial numbers. Walnut oil finish. HWO is shown on label. Some of the pictures of the inside were taken before the caps were replaced. Serial numbers 71S211 and 71S212. Restoration included: 2 New K-22 woofers (new as in I bought them on eBay in greatcondition) new grill cloth purchased from Bob Crites to match the factory cloth 4 new 2uF capacitors (2 per speaker) Complete sanding of entire surface of both speakers to remove any nicks and imperfections in the wood New hand rubbed stain which is a matte walnut finish Text 214-783-4955 $500 firm. Cash only. Pickup in Lewisville. Shipping is possible, but would rather sell to someone local in Dallas because it's a PITA to ship something heavy like this. I'll have to calculate shipping if you're not in the area.
  22. I recently finished upgrading and restoring a pair of early Heresy I's and as part of that upgrade I replaced the caps. They sounded great to me, but several members here said that replacing the caps was an essential part of the upgrade, so I did. After I took out the old caps, I measured them.....and low and behold - they measured right where they should be. Since I already had replaced the caps I left the new ones in. Now I have a perfectly working pair of original Heresy caps for sale. I'm asking $40 for all 4 caps. Local pickup in Lewisville. Shipping would be extra. Text me at 214-783-4955 Patrick
  23. In Frisco. These have been used in a smoke-free home for the past 10 years as part of a surround system in my master bedroom. Top notch condition and they sound great. I'm upgrading to a different Klipsch set and these sadly need to go. Ad posted here: http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/ele/5495051795.html $250 - pickup in Frisco Text at 214-783-4955 Patrick
  24. I ran across a pair of Quartets for sale that appear to be in good condition. The problem is that they are about a 3 hour drive one-way to get them. The seller has offered to drop the price down to $150 for the pair. I have a pair of KG4s right now that are in my primary listening system and I'm almost finished restoring a pair of Heresy I's (just waiting for a set of caps to arrive) that I plan to sell. How to the Quartets compare in the lineup of Klipsch speakers?
