  1. I was listening to a only-piano song today and noticed the horns in my Herseys were doing a tinty distortion when certain keys of the piano were played. Any advice? Do I need to replace the horns? The diaphragms? With what? Thanks for any direction. I was also thinking if I have to open them up I might want to upgrade the crossovers?
  2. It is amazing. The bottom end punch kicks you right in the chest. I got the cross over set to 400. The Sansui has the Hereseys sounding a lot warmer, too.
  3. I finally order one! I’m pairing it with a Sansui AU-D7 to power the Hereseys! Should have them powered up sometime this week.
  4. Interesting. I was able to go up to 200 hz. I will try what you said. I didn’t know those bottoms liked upper bass signal. I will try what you suggested.
  5. I’m intrigued with the idea of making my own horns. I’ve been on the prowl for a set for a long time! I power these with two amps. The newer pioneer has a low out which gets sent to an older Onkyo. The signal is adjustable which is set either to 100hz or 150hz depending on type of music. Judas Priest really prefers 100! Again, the Heresys seem to really pick up the slack regarding the mids. I need a huge room for these and my next home shall have one. For now, I’m pretty sure I have the best sounding and loudest system in Marquette County, MI. Thanks again for the feedback! i snapped a pic of how the front of one of the Heresys turned out after sanding and buffing.

  7. I got these both from Lansing, MI area at two very different times in my life. I bought the Hereseys for $300 in 1992 when I didn’t have a lot to piss in. A guy I was working for was commenting how he had a big pair of speakers he wanted to get rid of called Klipsch. BAM. I found the cash. Used them as monitor speaker in my band for 20 years but they were never beat on power-wise; just cosmetically... and they weren’t mint when I bought them. I found the bottoms 15 years later right down the road at a pawn shop in East Lansing. They were like new with a $200 price tag. Didn’t even call the wife to check... I don’t have the LSI tops (never had them) but I am very pleased with how this combo sounds. I feel like the mids may be superior to a regular pair of La Scalas. Very crunchy. Of course the bass punch and highs are spectacular too. I am shining and sanding the trim and putting it back on. The Hereseys are pretty marred they are turning out much different than they were originally. They are turning out nice. Thanks for all the feedback, all!
  8. Thanks everyone. I’m cleaning them up and leaving them as they are. Taking off the aluminum, sanding them and polishing it all is a long process but it’s gonna be worth it.
  9. Just became a member here. Ive loved Klipsch speakers since I was 17 and heard my friend’s LaScalas for the first time. I’ve got two sets of industrials - Lascala and Heresey. I’d like a more home-stereo-friendly look though. I’ve thought about buying a pair of wood veneer cabinets for the Hereseys but want the thump the bottoms offer included in the plan. I could sell some of what I have or have a buddy build me something. He’s a cabinet maker. I love the way they sound now. What would you guys do???
