  1. I just saw this listing myself and was going to post it.
  2. The JBL's have an "airy" hiss in the vocal range. The K's don't, and they sound more forward and "connected" on the vocals minus the noise. Try replaying the first 32 bars on each with your volume set at 50%, and tell me if you think I'm a nutter. I would like to know your opinion. Reference or not (on the JBL side...), I think I prefer the Klipsch sound comparing the two.
  3. I would think that it would be desirable to have your crossover as low as possible. 800hz is definitely in the human voice range, and I think the benefit is to get as much of the audio spectrum into the compression driver / horn setup as you can. Maybe someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that the mid horn/driver pair has less distortion than a woofer / subwoofer cone. I play around with an online tone generator when chatting about tonal ranges, or working on crossovers (just so that I have a mental gauge for what "X" hz works out to be): https://www.szynalski.com/tone-generator/
  4. I absolutely adore my CF3 V1's. Roy DEFINITELY nailed these.
  5. You should pick them up. You will not lose any money, and you can play with your "money in the bank"!
  6. I wish I was closer to Vegas. Free bump on me for an awesome Heresy deal.
  7. You''re right, they are 1's and not 2's. Correcting it now.

  9. I think that they are a great deal at the $300 price point. The least expensive "Heresy 3" around. When I picked them up, I was amazed at the condition. No gunk in the rat fur. At all. No scratches, dings, or dents. No light rust patina on the screw heads. I guess that you can't get any closer in condition to a brand new speaker. I wonder how many people passed on them because they were "Professional" models, or because they only have 1/4" mono input jacks... As @Dave A so eloquently put it: “Pro stuff IS the best secret. Hands down no contest. If all you are looking for is awesome sound avoid veneer.”
  10. I was only able to see the single speaker that was outside on the porch. They have another indoors, but I wasn't going to ask the lady to let me inside whilst hubby was away. So who knows what shape that one is in, due to no photos of it in the ad.
  11. That logo is actually embedded. Part of the laminate. The wood is swollen, the horns are not good, and the joints are all coming apart. Most things are made of particle chip board and the laminate is put on with carpet tacks. The top and bottom pieces on the horns are a thin layer of fiberglass that does not seal on the sides. The drivers are the only value, and there was no way for me to see the woofers.
  12. He said to just make an offer, he is more interested in getting rid of them than trying to make money.

  14. I thought this was interesting, and I should share it...
  15. Wow, very nice. I would think that they are worth every penny.
  16. They appear to be very nice, and worth the price. I am close enough to Ocala to pick them up for a prospective buyer... https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/4715784621767972 Vintage PAIR OF KLIPSCH HERESY II SPEAKERS ~ FORTE II ~ Excellent!

  17. They appear to be in reasonable shape. Oak. Dusty but nice. No pics of the backsides, unfortunately, but we know what they are... https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/390704655784864/ Klipsch Heresy Speakers w/upgraded Crites tweeters and crossovers.

  18. Born in 1985, and it is a "Heresy 2" because it appears to be a non-removable back panel (with no screws holding the panel in place).
  19. Sorry, I took a verbal shortcut.
  20. Ever run on a treadmill and not moved forward?
  21. I have no real knowledge about these, but the price seems cheap. Are they worth picking up? VINTAGE MG-IIB MAGNEPLANAR LOUDSPEAKERS VINTAGE MG-IIB MAGNEPLANAR LOUDSPEAKERS, not working, ready for rewire, great condition exterior. www.facebook.com 
  22. And the answer is no, planes on treadmills will not take flight. It's all about how much air movement can be generated over the tops of the wings to create the vacuum needed for lift. On a treadmill the planes will stay firmly planted. You make the wheels turn fast, but in relation to the air the plane is not moving at all. *<;o)
  23. Well, after a month of listening to them... ...they are fantastic. I'm feeding them via the 100W RMS mono blocks, and the sound is simply divine! They hold their own with the 3002's at the power levels I'm feeding them.
