  1. ...must resist tinkering with my Heresies... ... must hold on a bit... The original Super Heresy thread is really what pushed me to upgrade from the rp-160s. But I really want to keep the configuration stock before doing anything. This is so tempting Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks for posting your project. I really liked the patina on post #7, and had it been me I might have been tempted to keep them like that. There is some hard life history oozing from them! But the black duratex looks really classy, they turned out great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. All things being equal, a red horn is much faster sounding than a normal black one. Everyone knows that!
  4. During the years, I have come to realise that what I am looking for in a speaker is not ultimate details, deeeeep bass or Concert level sound pressure. The Heresies are very dynamic and lifelike. There is a presence to the sound that resonates with my ears. Currently they are resting on the TV console and that places them just a bit to high for the tweets to be more at ear level. I hope that lowering them on custom stands is going to do help creating a stronger 3D illusion, which is one of the traits that I value in a speaker. (the small Tanbergs in the photo excel in this but lack the snap the Hereires have.) Amplification curtesy of this little gem. EL84 push pull VA-One by QUAD
  5. Current list of tweaks 1. sanded down and oiled up with 1-3 turp oil ration 2. new 2uF sonicaps installed 3. Tweets Crites CT120s 4. Swapped back with 3/4 plywood and installed more user friendly terminals 5. no plans to change woof or k55...yet 6. move from temporary placement by TV and build appropriate stands playing sweet music now
  6. I got a pair of 22s in my Heresies that I am am freshening up. The only thing that I noticed on inspection was that the cloth surround was rather dry to the touch compared to my GPA414s. But they were much newer. Wonder if they should be treated once in a while. At least the surrounds don’t rot. To counter potential sag from 40 years of gravity I Did considered monting the woofers upsidedown when putting them back in the cab. But the leads didn’t reach far enough to get to the crossover so I dropped the idea. They sound great anyway Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. @Dave S Congrats on the build, hope it sounds as good as it looks. Did you get a chance to compare the A55-Gs with the K53? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I don’t even think they have 25 in stock at my shop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 18mm is perfect, 22 is just massive. Go for good quality ply, and if in doubt add a brace. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. MCP you will like the rp160 for sure. Ironically I just sold mine to finance a Heresy purchase. had them for about a year, but the heresies popped up close by and I had to jump on them. They are rare after all. Enjoy the 160s, and don't rush. keep and eye out for Heritage sales and something will come
  11. Awesome work. you are realky making fast progress on this project!
  12. Finally an update did some veneer and crossover work and decided to move shop over in the tech and mods section. the troubleshooting turned more into a restoration. https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/182746-heresy-troubleshootind-partii/ See you there
  13. And here is a shot of the cabs with and without the oil/turp. This is after 5 layers. Very satisfying bringing the veneer back to its shine. Thanks for all the advice so far.
  14. This is a continuation from the “Heresy troubleshooting” I started in the 2 channel section. Figured I move my Heresy posts here, as my project is turning more into a restoration than a trouble shoot. the original started here: Tested some new 2uF caps in the Type D schematic and that removed most of the strange noises. Swapped out the Quad 306 for another Quad 405-2 and that cured completely the issue. Here is the rework with some quick and dirty connections. Am currently looking at the differences between type D and E. Might completely refresh the first crossover to E type and compare.
  15. That base is very cool! congrats on the speakers.
