  1. Yeah, having 4 matching Heresy in that finish and having the cane will be impressive.
  2. Congratulations! I have a feeling you will be rather happy with these.
  3. Welcome to the forum, and I hope you can pick them up for a reasonable amount.
  4. Even if they have issues, they are still worth the shekels, especially from the pics. I have no idea what the cane grilles would sell for, but I would guess a goodly chunk o' ching.
  5. I think these look great. Nice find for anyone wanting a set of Heresy.
  6. You're quite welcome. I hope they are everything you want.

  8. Still WAAAAAAAAY too much money for what these are. They are hardly recognizable as Klipschorns (And they might well be the knockoffs from the '70's and '80's). He should consider himself lucky if he can get a grand out of these.
  9. Here you go, presenting the crossover schematic for the CF2:
  10. I'm trying to figure out where I can hide a couple of k-700 horns in mine... And the 12" woofers.
  11. Listening to Van Halen currently, "Finish What Ya Started". Talk about a CLEAN recording! You should check it out... The R-14M's just got deployed. I bought a small Pyle "80 watt" amp (Actually 40W per 2 channels) from the Amazon Warehouse for $28, and I wanted it to drive the sound from a vintage gaming PC from 1998. This amp was surprising to me, it drives those little Klipsches really well. I have the volume turned almost all the way down, and they are plenty loud and clear. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001P2VV50/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 @wvu80
  12. Too true. The surround receiver has an easy setup to send each side of a stereo input to all speakers on that side. Simply incredible sound.
  13. I hear ya there. That pic I posted earlier is my near-field 7.1 with almost all Pro models. They can convert eardrums into a thick liquid.
  14. And here's another in the general area, 150 amp, $350! You can use big welder units for the power supply, Lincoln, Miller etc. Those generators are designed for job sites, running all day long. https://orlando.craigslist.org/for/d/kissimmee-generac-150-amp-automatic/7275336085.html
  15. Sometimes you can find the transfer switches on Craigslist, FB Marketplace, etc. on the cheap. I just did a local CL search and found an automatic transfer switch, 100 amp service for $300: https://ocala.craigslist.org/for/d/crystal-river-transfer-switch/7268593947.html
  16. Just for fun, here's my desktop in a newer photo, showing some of the collection: KP-3002's as the main R-L (the monitor is a 55" Sony Bravia, to give you a sense of scale). KPT-100-'s center channel on the shelf above. R-14M's waiting to be deployed. KG4's on their side top right and left. Just outside the shot are the Super Heresy doing right / left surround. In the back are two KP-1000's (modded into 2 way full range) doing right / left rear channel duties. Oh yeah, a 12" Polk sub (I have an 8" Klipsch, but it just doesn't stand up to the rest of the setup! I wish they would put out a decently priced 12" Heritage sub, with a 15" as the upgrade...)
  17. Yeah, laid flat on a shelf just above his monitor.
  18. It might be time to do a re-issue.
  19. I utilized broken 78's to do antique restoration. You put the pieces in a mason jar, add some mineral spirits, and voila! You have a topcoat varnish that will match old finishes. You could also use it as a wipe down fluid for the antique varnishes that had become 'alligator skin', smoothing the original finish without needing to strip and re-spray.
  20. I wish I could click more than one "Like"...
  21. Heresy are small (when compared to other Heritage speakers!), and well worth the investment. They are extremely "sensitive", which means you get great sound out of lower wattage, vintage stereo equipment. I own two pair, my first were a pair of beaters so I turned them into faux pros. And did the "Super Heresy" mod on them. They sound great. The second pair are Heresy 'E' (The 'E' is for Export), sold in a PX overseas, and brought back to the States. I purchased them from the original owner who had not used them since the '80's. They are 100% original and sound fantastic! @geezin'
  22. Fantastic looking pair. I never seem to see 20's. It occurred to me that maybe people went with either the lower end 10's, or the top of the line 30's, but not so many went for the "in between" level. They look like Epics with the horn and woofer swapped. Free bump! *<;o)
  23. I wish I was close enough to drive it in a day. Some will pop up here in Florida sooner or later.
