  1. Should be asking this in the Tech/Mod forum but while I'm here, what's the acceptable voltage range of the 2uf caps?
  2. Not likely, She's got better hearing than I do @ 57. And an astounding memory of the WWII and before. One aspirin and one blood thinner pill a day is her only medication. One of the last of a brave and valiant generation who's qualities are sadly lacking in our current one.
  3. I'm assuming this is the correct schematic for a '78 H1? Heresy I Type E
  4. Haven’t had a chance or time to pop the back off yet. But all individual drivers are producing sound.
  5. Impedance? What should the drivers measure?
  6. SQ wise, quite a bit. Hoping it’s age of x/o components. Less imaging, sound stage and highs are lacking. All drivers making sound just not quite right sounding. Don’t expect them to absolutely equal the 3’s but can tell they’re lacking from what they should be.
  7. @thebes Ok. They’re a far cry from the SQ of my H3’s. Pretty simple X/O design. Think I can handle replacing the few caps on these. Can you give me more specific PIO cap recommendations? Never ordered them before. Not concerned with cost since there aren’t many, just want good ones to improve the SQ. Thanks.
  8. Guess what I found so unusual was when the sales associate said those speakers had been in the store for over a year and no one had even asked about them. They were just glad to move them out. Probably left money on the table but have long since quit worrying about what if. Felt the selling price was more than fair for all involved especially if in need of some TLC.
  9. Was actually thinking of picking up a really clean pair of '89 Oiled Oak H2's offered on Facebook when I get back home. Offered @ $600 but think seller might take 5 bills. Then these HBR's showed up. Wife would not be happy but I'd have a pair of 1's, 2's & 3's. 🤪 Really can't justify having 3 sets of Heresy's but, but............
  10. So, I've driven 400 miles from home to visit my 100 year old mother in an assisted care facility. I'm limited to 1-20 minute visit a day w/ 6' separation and no contact due to the current situation. This is a great improvement considering there was no physical visiting at all until very recently. Anyway, with extra time on my hands and wanting to find my mom a little jewelry gift before heading home I stumble into a little Antique/gift shop near where I'm staying. After not finding much that she would find appealing in the jewelry section decided to just browse the rest of the store. Only took 30 seconds to notice this............ Immediately started looking for it's twin. Couldn't find it anywhere so asked for assistance. 30 minutes later it was found covered in wrapping paper and used as a Christmas Tree stand. Price tag on each speaker said $198. Explained to the well meaning but uninformed sales associate that those prices were well outside of reason and they must have been priced as a set not individually. After coming to a mutual understanding regarding this pricing error it only seemed prudent to make an offer. Ended up carrying them out for $150 for the pair. Will be several days before getting them home and tested. Hoping they are operational, new x/o's will be in order. Just couldn't help but give these survivors a 2nd chance. Not my best score but not my worst.
  11. Will probably prefer my Quartets with more bass but hate to pass up a nicely cared for pair of H’s. Will offer $500 and see what happens 😁
  12. These '89 H2 OO are being offered to me for $600. Seller says they sound great and are in pretty good shape. Know they will need some x/o updates. I know the seller from previous transactions and trust her but haven't kept up on H2 pricing. Due to current conditions she will not audition but will take them back if something is wrong with them. I'd be more inclined to offer full price if in walnut but all Klipsch speakers that I have found up here only seem to be in Oak for some reason. Seems a bit high but don't want to insult with a low ball counter offer. Is $600 in the ballpark? Thanks

    LCR help

    Well, Are upgrades installed yet? Have a pair of Quartets & the Academy that will be serving similar duty. New Crites X/O's & Ti tweets for both sitting in the basement waiting for time to install. Looking forward to your observations.
  14. Do they still provide this? Have been trying to contact Klipsch Support but no response yet.
