    WTB H3 Grill Frames

    Need a pair of H3 grills (or just frames preferably) to cover with custom cloth. Will need to ship to 99712. Thanks

    Heresy 3 'Sub'ject

    I've just ordered a pair of unfinished walnut H3's w/o grills & risers. Will be integrating them into a 'mid century style' stereo console that I'm having built for my wife. It's purpose will be to appease my SO desire (demand) to condense our (my) sound system gear in our (her) living room from 13 pieces of gear to 3-4 and to give her a new custom piece of furniture as a 15 year anniversary gift (she deserves a lot more for putting up with me for this long). Yes, I know this subject has been gone over again and again. I'm not debating the need or lack of need for a sub w/ Heresy's, I appreciate the depth a sub can add to 2 channel listening but I tend to be a bit of an old 'purist' and like speakers that can produce lows adequately on their own and the H3's perform that task well in my estimation. That being said, this system will rarely be played at higher volumes due to location and the addition of subs for low volume listening does make sense to me. I only get one chance at the design of this console and think that a pair of small, 8-10" sub enclosures would be kinda cool looking & be a quality sound addition. They would need to be a sealed design and sit directly under the H3's at either end of the console. Console will be just under 8' wide, 42" tall (36" actual cabinet height w/6" legs) & 20" deep. Top of H3's will sit flush w/top & front of console. Room is 16 x 30' w/17' ceiling & adjacent ancillary rooms. Equipment will consist of the H3's, (and subs) Marantz 2230 (possibly a future Marantz amp if one comes available & the 2230 would remain as a pre./tuner), Pro-ject TT (until a nice Vintage TT presents itself locally), Cambridge CD player & a techniques cassette deck. An R12SW is my current sub and it's used exclusively for HT with a completely different gear source. Been looking at a pair of these https://www.parts-express.com/powered-dayton-audio-8-250-watt-compact-subwoofer-kit-with-built-in-dsp--300-7150#lblProductDetails Anyone have experience with these? Again, not looking for HT subs, want a reasonably priced 2 channel sub. Other suggestions? Thanks

    WTB H3 Grill Frames

    @avguytx No spares. Saw an old thread on this site, which I can't find now, that had dimensions and cut out specs for several heritage grills of different varieties. Bob sells some Heresy motor boards but wasn't aware of any grill options. Was kind of hoping that someone would have an old worn out or damaged H3 grill for use as a template more than anything. Thought that the cut outs for drivers were different between H1,2 & 3's. Thanks

    Heresy 3 'Sub'ject

    Thought about that but this unit will be on the floor above our B&B rooms. Don't want really want down firing and would prefer a 'drop in' option for the build.

    How to: New Grills, grill cloth, etc...

    Just found this thread but none of the Heresy grill frame dimensions or pictures/links are available anymore for the first several pages.
  6. Listening to Muddy Waters "The Folk Singers" on my 'Sixes' as I respond to this thread right now. Vacillated back & forth between the 'Three's' & 'Sixes' for weeks for the very same reasons you've mentioned. Noticed a thread on this forum that mentioned how impressed Mr. Crites was with his pair of 'Sixes'. His recommendation and the fact that I really would miss the 2 channel stereo separation that the 'Threes' lack made my decision. Yes, the 'Sixes' will take up more realestate and the WAF may be paramount in your decision. I'm regularly amazed at how beautiful looking and how just plain good sounding the 'Sixes' are. That being said, they are my first and only foray into the world of powered speakers. Have not heard the 'Threes' myself but I'm sure they are also an outstanding choice. However, my vote, if room allows, would be for the 'Sixes'. Truly don't think you would regret it.

    Cory, Are these with the great grain pattern still available by chance?

    Very nice. Russia huh? Perhaps I missed it in this thread but did you have those custom made?

    FYI Just got an Email from the sellers. Seems they also have ‘finished’ walnut Heresy’s w/ risers & grills for $1299. Assuming free shipping also to ‘conus’.

    Ahhhh... missed that connection. Thought it might have been a reference to something specific to your local.

    Alaska Hawaii Puerto Rico and international buyers Please contact us with your complete address and telephone number for accurate shipping rates. We give discounts that are not calculated by the Ebay shipping quote system. This is kinda funny. Ebay doesn't allow you to attach emails or telephone #'s (to my knowledge) to any correspondence on their sites. I just tried to add my phone # to the email as they requested and was threatened with being 'banned'. 😬

    Heresy III Raw $800

    Yep, It was the Ash finish that I was looking at. Didn't realize they had two Ebay ads up. My mistake.
  14. ThomasD.

    Heresy III Raw $800

    Guess my thinking is just as 'cynical' since I was wondering the same thing. But didn't notice anywhere in their ad that both finishes were available. I know Cory w/ MetropolisLakeOutfitters is a highly regarded distributor here but not sure the speckled black finish is for me. Will try to contact them today also for details.

    Heresy III Raw $800

    @Oztayls You mention your are Ash but the Ebay store says unfinished walnut: This listing is for a PAIR of Klipsch Heresy III speakers in unfinished WALNUT wood Veneer. The photos are of the ASH finish. Walnut photos coming soon! Edit. My mistake. Didn't realize they had two ad's up, 1 for Ash finish, 1 for Walnut finish. Sorry

    Now that is interesting. I swear while I was trying to email them about the shipping that Ebay site said 4 available. But your right, now it is back to 10. Hmmmm.....

    Heresy III Raw $800

    Are they an HIP or 'Pro' version??
  20. ThomasD.

    Heresy III Raw $800

    It states that they'll ship outside the 'conus' but to contact for shipping quote prior to checkout. I've been burned before with outrageous additional shipping charges from other sellers. I simply ask that they deduct whatever shipping charge they are including in the sale price from the actual shipping cost to my location. However they often just add the total shipping cost to the total sale price. Don't want to pay more for shipping than the speakers cost.
  21. ThomasD.

    Heresy III Raw $800

    Hardly ever does that happen. Though I did get a pair of Zu Omen DW's shipped free. But the fine print on these Ebay H3's specifically stated to contact seller for AK, HI & PR shipping. Best deal I've seen yet on H3's. Kinda wanted to 'Steam Punk' a pair so unfinished w/o grill would be perfect.

    Heresy III Raw $800

    Trying to get a shipping quote to AK. Probably won't hear back in time to grab a pair. Have watched the 10 pairs go down to 4 pairs in just a few hours. Wish I'd caught this thread earlier. 😔

    So are the specs between these and regular H3’s identical?

    KV3 lifespan

    ⬆️⬆️⬆️ Ordered new x/o's for my KG-4's from Bob & sent him my KG-1 x/o's for upgrading even though he had never seen the KG-1 board before. Night & day difference in my KG-4's and a definite improvement with the KG-1's. Will be ordering new x/o's for my Quartets soon. Been looking for an Academy as a center for the KG-4's as they are suppose to be the closest for timbre match.

    KG4 to Forte III?

    Might I ask where that would be ?
