  1. I'm looking for a pair of Heresys, originals or Heresy II. I'm in the Kansas City metro area and I'm willing to pay $400. Thanks!
  2. Steve Guttenberg over on CNET talked about the Heresy today. Good article on buying speakers and he spoke highly of the Heresy. http://www.cnet.com/news/the-smartest-speaker-buying-tip-of-all/
  3. Hi Folks I have a vintage pair of herasys. Puling the grill I noticed that the woofers have faded to grey. Is there any treatment that will renew them so they are black and won't crack. I'm the original owner and plan on willing them to family. ) thanks
  4. Hi, does anyone know if a pair of vintage heresy speakers would be suitable for DJ use at a very small venue (max 80 capacity)? I mainly play old soul, funk and jazz music from vinyl and I want to try and make the event as 'audiophile' as possible. I did read somewhere that Heresys are a bit lightweight on bass, but I don't know how true that is? I also wondered what the best overall set-up would work best? Perhaps Klipsch Forte might be better? If anyone has any experience, ideas or opinions about this I would love to hear what you have to say. I live in the UK (London) - not sure how relevant that is! Steve.
  5. Hot off the video presses, just in time for 'murrica's birthday. And proof we still are who we are, as much as we can be. Bonus points if you can name the guy behind the voice. (a lot of bonus points because I really doubt anyone would know). Enjoy!
  6. I have a set of four sequential speakers, The serial numbers are sequential 5453, 5454, 5455, 5456. All working , two have a broken post but are full functional. I DID NOT TAKE A PART AND CLEAN. They are in good shape , few mount holes. They are black with rounded edges and metal grill cover over the 12" . I will post pictures tonight. I am looking to sell the set. Putting the feelers out there to see if someone in really interested in them. Would like to get a fair price for them, did research here, on eBay , craigslist and I know they have value. I would rather sell them to someone directly. Would consider partial trade. I will post pics and we can talk.
  7. Advice For Boxing Up Heresy's For Shipping I once had a single lovely pair of H Is. Since Hurricane Katrina I have bought 6 more Heresy Is and 2 Heresy IIs in an attempt to "perfectly" match 5 of them for a 5.1 set up that never came to fruition. (Not enough bedroom space) Of the 6 that were shipped (2H IIs bought locally), I found 2 of the shipping boxes. I have 2 original boxes from my original pair of H Is (~1976 vintage) bought in the late 1980s. Of course, I cannot find those boxes. I guess I threw the other 4 boxes away. In 2009 someone from the Dallas area shipped 2 H Is to New Orleans. They were likely shipped UPS or FedEx Ground. They were well packed and the boxes arrived in pristine condition - virtually unscathed. All 6 speakers shipped to me were packed differently. In common: they were very tightly packed and I think 1 set was double boxed, which also helps in case the box gets soaked or from possible corner drops and punctures. 1 set was newspaper padded-with lots of folded and rolled and crunched paper. The KL original boxes I think had big and thick Styrofoam molding around the H Is. The max size for a box on United Airlines is 62 linear inches (L x W x H). So the KL boxes would likely have been too big anyway. The max weight is 70 lbs. After that, the bag fees soar. I found different weights for the H Is on the internet, from 45-55 lbs. H IIs or IIIs are around 40-45 lbs. At the airport counter, the boxed H Is were around 50 lbs on that scale. The boxes from Plano did not weigh much. They were rated 200 lb (meaning they can handle 50-60 lbs), 24 x 18 x 18 inches in size and open on the 24" side for easy loading of the speakers. The sole padding, still in the boxes, was +/- 1" thick Styrofoam - pretty firm and carefully cut for box and speaker size. I think the Styrofoam was intended for thermal insulation and 1 side had a tape like backing. The guy in Plano cut the Styrofoam carefully to fully pad all of the corners. There was a big plastic garbage bag inside too. I used that to wrap the H Is. I would probably have preferred to put a thin blanket around each speaker before using the bag, just to baby the wood speaker surfaces, but room was tight as is. Because my H Is had the small 1" risers, I had to remove the Styrofoam from the bottom and used folded up large paper garbage bags to pad the lower corners and actual bottom of the box. I placed 2 folded up paper bags over the grills before laying the top 18 x 24 Styrofoam piece over the front of the entombed speaker. The speaker connectors on the back of the H Is had previously dented the rear 18 x 24 Styrofoam piece. The bag over the H Is and the Styrofoam side piece made "rolling" the speaker into the box quite easy. The fit was nice and tight. You do need some type of plastic bag over the speaker in case of rain, water, etc. FWIW: the 18 x 18 x 24 box on the Home Depot website opens at the top. They list as 1.66 each. I do not know how thick they are. So maybe use 2 boxes to ensure good box thickness and use lots of packing tape for the cut up second or outer box. Top loading would be more of a pain too. I think U Haul sells 200 lb and 275 lb ("double thickness") side opening boxes for under $6.00 each. If the HD boxes are at all flimsy, maybe best to get the 275 lb strength boxes from U Haul or elsewhere. I have no idea where to get "thermal" grade firm Styrofoam or similar, but likely to be found at HD or Lowes too. Remember to cut the pieces to make a tight fit in the box. You might consider doing some of your own measurements first by recording the dimensions of your Heresy's and the INNER dimensions of the boxes you buy. I think U Haul can also get 26 x 18 x 18 inch boxes, if others have Heresy’s with non-detachable risers. Now for drama. It was dry when I left NOLA. After boarding the plane, they closed the airport at Houston due to a nasty thunderstorm (wicked witch not sighted though; it was an old Continental crew, thankfully). Missed my connection at Houston (Despite the storm, my connecting flight left on time).Got on another plane. Bags arrived next day to another airport. Delivered, in the rain, that night, 30 hours after leaving NOLA to my new little apt on Capitol Hill in DC. (No I am NOT a politician. I work at the National Cancer Institute, so I am actually trying to help folks.) Thankfully the speakers arrived intact. The boxes were a total mess. I know UPS and FedEx can also torture boxes. But from Plano to NOLA 5 years ago, the speakers I bought arrived in great shape. Except for some shipping stickers and tape, the boxes could have been returned as unused - they looked that good. Well, they look like a Rugby or Ozzie rules Footballer after a rough match in the rain now. I also put an All In One copier/scanner/fax machine on the plane, in its original boxing. Similar story, though with less box damage. I removed the laser toner before boxing it up. I don’t what happened or where, but when I opened up the machine to replace the toner last night, the smell was so bad I had to air my apt out immediately. Weird, but not much smell left in there this morning. No obvious water damage, etc either. Maybe something to do with heat and humidity. In the past few years other new speakers I have seen shipped in a double box fashion. All had some type of paper or semi-plastic-y cover and always some type of waterproof cover over that. Styrofoam of at least ¾” size was always present. Some of outer boxes were of the double thickness type. In the past, I have received many items bought via folks here, Audiogon, Ebay, etc. Whenever I had good communication about the items before shipment occurred, they always arrived in good to perfect condition. When goods were received damaged the seller and I always settled the matter quickly with both of us being satisfied. People here were always very careful to pack items in a wonderful way. I hope this helps future buyers and shippers. From NOLA with love.
  8. Hi, I purchased the Klipsch Heresy speakers new in late 77 early 78 if memory serves me. The serial numbers are 48R691 & 48R692. These are more studio type, no grills & an ebony birch plywood. One speaker has the Klipsch emblem over the tweeter and the other was lost some time ago.These have been on a shelf 10 feet off the ground in my livingroom for the past 16 years. The speaker with the Klipsch emblem has some dings on the front but other than that are in excellent condition. I am looking for $500 for the pair. I have one set of the original paperwork somewhere and will provide it at the first moment I run across it again. So, consider it w/o and a bonus when found.Images can be seen here:https://picasaweb.google.com/darrstark/Heresy?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCLbg3vS70fKywQE&feat=directlink
  9. I do not believe im gonna make it in time... Yes Schu im workin on my post count...Cheers to you good buddy and all the rest of you that are here your all super awesome
  10. I am putting together my first ever stereo system (turntable, speakers, receiver), and I recently purchased a pair of vintage 1980 Klipsch Heresy HWL speakers. My dad had a similar pair when I was younger, so I purchased them partly for nostalgia and sentimental reasons. My earliest musical listening experiences were through Klipsch. They had a tremendous impact on me and are a huge reason why I'm a musician today. My next step is getting a tubed receiver. All the research I've done on the vintage Heresy speakers suggest that the Heresys really sing through tubed instead of solid state, as that is what they were designed for. They also recommend getting a receiver or amp with a mid level controller. So far, I've been looking at Marantz (specifically the 2270 and 2275 model), Mcintosh, and Fischer. However, I'm also trying not to break the bank and am open to other suggestions. I will only be playing vinyl through this set-up. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions, recommendations, or advice. I'm brand new to this! Thanks!

  14. I remember seeing something about this series a while back that now seems interesting… You see, I recently acquired another set of THSR’s. My last pair were THSR-2’s… so I had to build a set of crossovers more-or-less from scratch but adding the tweeter was easy (the THSR-2 uses the HII cabinet/motor board with only a small piece of ply covering the tweeter cut out). My new pair are the original THSR which came with a nice fully built E crossover but do not contain the cut out for the K77 tweeter in their HI cabinet/motor board. Because of this I’ve been going back and forth on what exactly I want to do with these… I could try to route out the opening myself but I’m not all that confident in my routing abilities? I’m also not a huge K77 fan and that is really the only thing that could possibly fit in that space. I also thought about just setting a tweeter of my choice on top but I would really prefer to keep the system self contained. Which is where the Beta comes in… I know I wouldn't exactly be using it for its intended purpose but it would allow me to add a tweeter without modifying the cabinet and the woofer doesn't spec out to be a bad K22 replacement? I guess I’m just looking to see if anybody thinks this coaxial woofer idea is crazy or not?
  15. I am looking for a pair of Vintage Heritage or 3 way Klipsch for a 2 Channel living room system. I'm looking at the older models to stay within my budget. I am willing to drive from Cincinnati, OH.
  16. I am looking for a little advice in picking speakers for my home theatre. Anyone ever compared the Cornwalls to the JBL 3677's in a Home Theatre setup , where occasional music will also be played. I am wondering if a setup of Cornwalls as LR and a single Heresy as the center channel would be advised. I know that it is best to use the same speaker as LCR, but was trying to trim the costs a bit. My other choice would be to use two Cornwall III's as the lr and get an older cornwall for the center. Any advice would be appreciated. Does anyone know how the JBL line handles music. Thanks
  17. Does anyone know of any Klipsch dealers in North Carolina with Heritage series speakers available to audition? I'd especially like to hear the La Scala II and the Heresy III speakers, but I can't find a dealer that actually has these set-up for demo. Most dealers seem to only have these as special order. Dealers in central NC would be closest to my location. Thanks.
