    Heresy $70.00 Jackson Tennessee

    Haha ... long drive from the Florida beaches to Tennessee hills Was just "chiming in" and amazed at some of the bargains I see. Jeez ... I paid seven HUNDRED for mine (OK; for 3). Cheers, Emile

    Heresy $70.00 Jackson Tennessee

    Ha; see what you mean But ... why would a spammer try to collect 5-10 email addresses via CraigsList?

    Heresy $70.00 Jackson Tennessee

    Looks VERY good for $70 If I were closer I would take a look ... haha, with $70 cash.
  6. Bob Cries has the black fabric ... used it and it's very nice https://critesspeakers.com/speaker_fabric.html

    cornwall 1 grills

    Haha Just take the grilles off ... and use them as a template for new ones .. very easy ... only need a circular and a jig saw - or someone can do it for you for $20. Then buy the covering material you want ... cheap at many places, but if you want the real stuff it's $80 (?) from Bob Crites ... https://critesspeakers.com/speaker_fabric.html . Staple and/or glue it ... SimplySpeakers.com has pretty good glue, but sure you can find it locally. Yeah ... $200 saved Cheers, Emile Add-on ... Don't forget to spray paint the wood. Haha; I forgot when I made a small pair of grilles for K-510 horns and had to do it "again." Also; the eBay guy used 1/4 inch mdf ... I build some grilles for my KPT-904's (bit larger than CW) using 3/8" plywood and it warps a bit

    Klipsch KPT-456 SOLD

    Awesome I should have gotten them but just NO room left. (Have a pair of 904's.) Have fun with them!
  9. Hi EBEB, Welcome to the forum Have tried a bunch of amps on my Forte's Marantz 1030 (15wpc), Marantz 1060 (30wpc), Marantz 2252B (52wpc), Yamaha CR1020 (100wpc) and a Crown K1 pro-amp (350wpc). Actually preferred the moderate power of the Marantz 1060 ... to me it had the best sound. If you do not want to go the "vintage" route, have heard some of the new Yamaha's (not heard on my Forte's) ... like the A-S801 ... and was pleasantly surprised. Cheers, Emile
  10. Hi Rich; welcome to the forum OK; one more opinion Have Cornwall I's in my main listening room (as rears) and Forte I's in a small stereo room. The Forte's are "anemic" compared to the Cornwall's If you like to play your music loud, there is no comparison, Just ordered some PRO woofers to replace the regular ones in the Forte's ... OK; trying to get these Forte's to play "evenly" with K-510 horns ... very "knowledgeable" people on this forum have advised me that I might get "close" to Cornwall's using this approach Good luck! Cheers, Emile

    Heresy III Raw $800

    Haha ... had me there Was wondering what those dual woofer , dual horn speakers were ...they looked very interesting. OK; stacked Heresy's ... still awesome
  12. 99.9% sure the Marantz 2270 will be great Had a Marantz 2252B (52wpc) on (800W) KPT-904's. Awesome, very detailed and loud enough for the neighbors to enjoy Switched to a Crown K1 amp (about 400wpc) and think (?) there is a slight difference ... tighter bass and better highs ... but would have no problem putting my 2252B back in Sorry; no clue on the Outlaw ... but's it is "only" 110wpc ... may get you "1dB" extra, but not much more than your Marantz. Cheers, Emile

    Klipschorns with Fortes?

    Pretty sure about this ... if I'm wrong someone will certainly "chime' in. If you run speakers opposite of each other, the sound waves start cancelling (and/or reinforcing) each other. If you change the speaker wiring on the back ones (red wire to black post, black to red) it will negate this problem. Have fun
  14. Haha ... you already know you are going to buy these Good luck negotiating a better price

    Klipschorns with Fortes?

    Haha ... why not? I have KPT-904's up front and Cornwall's in the rear (on a separate amp). Don't use the rears often, but sounds incredible If you do, remember to chance the phase on the rears to avoid "cancellation." Haha; just buy another set for your office Cheers, Emile
