  1. Reaching out for help from anyone in the community with knowledge, advice and expertise when installing a system in a commercial restaurant space. Writing this in a beginner-friendly tone because that is where I am now. I've been a lurker taking notes who has finally convinced a friend to splurge on a sound system that will be an exciting feature of his restaurant that I'm collaborating on. A high-efficiency horn-loaded system powered by SET tube amplifiers is the path I've chosen to approach this project. The restaurant's build is almost complete, with interior finishings currently being applied. I've attached images of the floor plan and sections of the space with coloured markings for the whereabouts of the D.J. booth and speaker placement proposal for anyone interested in size and layout (yellow: booth, pink: speakers). A key with materials used is also included - there isn't much leeway to apply acoustic treatment. Maybe pyramid foam within the waffle spacing of the concrete ceiling. I also feel like the large floor to ceiling windows and wall tiles would create a lot of reflections, especially with how I'm planning to orient the speakers. I have suggested adding thick drapes to help remedy this for the owners, and there would be a few carpet art pieces hung that help in absorption as well. I'm proposing 2 budget options: Option 1 / Big-Budget Features: 2-3x pairs of Klipsch Hersey IVs - suspended or mounted on walls/columns upside down with a tilt angle. The horns would point downwards at the customers and the woofer closer to the ceiling to create a similar low-end response when placed ordinarily in a floor-standing position. The speakers will either be suspended by eye bolts and fender washers hung from a concrete beam waffle structure or mounted on french cleats on the structure's columns. They will be powered by: 2-3x Decware Super Zen Triode Amplifier would love to pair the Decware tube amps with the HIVs, but I'm concerned if they have enough oomph to drive the speakers to volume when it's a busy day at the restaurant 1x Condesa Carmen in-house analogue D.J. rotary mixer 2x Technics SL-1200MK7 Turntables 1x DAC/node streamer - undecided [BLUESOUND NODE or the AUDIOPHONICS RASPDAC an option for this budget] (DAC connected through USB or wirelessly streamed via Spotify Connect - Streamed via an iPad through a lighting cable to USB adapter or wirelessly through Spotify Connect connected via a node, respectively (streaming via chrome-cast is not an option because of its inability of gapless playback)). I've also heard that the new YAMAHA RX receivers act as streamers for Spotify Connect and other applications. Possibility of an independent DAC Schiit Modi 3+ for better sound (as subjective as that is for the setup) 1x Receiver to route all the incoming signal sources to the designated amplifiers and speakers - Need help in this department. Option 2 / Small Budget differentials: 3-4x Klipsch RP-600M II - also considering fitting them upside down with a tilt angle. The horns point downwards at the customers and the woofer closer to the ceiling to create a similar low-end response when placed ordinarily in a floor-standing position. But the 600 IIs would be mounted on the walls/columns versus being suspended from the ceiling. 3-4x Reisong A10 - I heard great things & felt they'd be a good fit for the more budget friendlier option, but I'm concerned if they have enough oomph like the Decware Zen triodes to drive the speaker in a busy day 1x Vaira Instruments RD20 in-house analogue D.J. rotary mixer There are a few missing puzzle pieces in the system due to my lack of experience, and I was hoping that anyone could kindly assist me. Looking for a receiver that will take the 3 different sources (in-house D.J. mixer output, DAC-Streamer Spotify output & guest D.J.'s controller output) and send the output signal to all the amplifiers powering the speakers. Would home theatre A.V. receivers work? I've checked the backplate of most A.V. receiver products, and they all have 'surround', 'front', 'center' labels for the different speaker outputs. I'm worried about whether each pair of speakers would get other signals - which wouldn't work in my application. I've also done my best to map out how the sound system component network would work with a resident D.J. system in a booth, guest D.J. with an external mixer, and DAC for regular musical playlist programming when there's no D.J. performing. Would love to hear everyone's advice and thoughts on how I've designed the proposed system and mapped it out. I'm not sure if I've got the number of speakers right - it's tricky since where I'm located doesn't have proper HiFi audio dealers in the country - I can't test any components. The purchasing decision must be made based on faith and expertise. As you now learned, a lot would be riding on this This project aims to bring a hi-fi experience to a population and culture that is not exposed to it and be inclusive in presenting it the best way possible with the budgets at hand. Your input would be greatly appreciated! P.S. Any thoughts of anyone who had listened to the active Superwax mini by Pitt & Giblin from Australia compared to Hersey's or other speakers from the heritage line-up?
  2. I just purchased a pair of Hersey II's. They have been hanging (yes, hanging by chains) from a church ceiling since the day they were purchased new. I have photos of the 'labels' but the chains were mounted in the exact spot. Can anyone decipher the year of manufacture from the information in the photo? I'm certain they have good karma... Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi. I have lots of experience with old Heritage gear, 1977 Heresy speakers combined with 1985 KG4 speakers and a Klipsch Sub, all driven by a Luxman R115. I have owned most of it since new, it is now at my farm. Needless to say we can entertain the wildlife! I am moving to a new home, already built, and want to create a new multi room system, anchored with modern Heritage series gear. I already bought a brand new set of Heresy IV speakers. At a bare minimum, I will buy a second set for another main room. This system is going to be music only, no TV or theater stuff. I would like to incorporate some modern amenities like Bluetooth for whole house access, and possibly be able to zone it for outdoor use, and possibly something like Sonos speakers/system in lesser used rooms. I am looking for recommendations on the Amplifier and system, with priority given to what will get great performance out of 2-4 Heresy 4 speakers, and possibly more. My experience with the older Klipsch is that the amp definitely made a difference, regardless of power. Finally, I have an extra set of KG4 and KG2 speakers not in use up at farm. Could this older stuff pair up well with an amp that meets my needs with the modern H4’s? Any help is appreciated!!! Thanks
  4. Hello, I have the opportunity to get some 1985 Hersey II’s for under $800. What will I need to do to update them to Hersey III levels without replacing everything? Can I get by with just changing the crossover and the posts on the back, or is there a lot more that I should do? Could do, I know involves replacing everything. That’s why I’m asking about should do. Is there much of a “Used” parts market out there or will I have to only get parts from Klipsch? How much do you think it will cost for parts? Do you think I’m waisting my time and should just buy new? Anything else you can think of? Thanks all. JD
  5. I picked up a set of sight unseen Hersey's yesterday. They were price right so I said ok. I was out of the office when they were delivered. They are consecutive S/N speakers, early 70's. Here is my question, on the back of one of the speakers, it appears that someone tried to remove the back panel and could not, so they used a skill saw to cut out the joint. I guess they assumed the joint was glued and they wanted to cut out the glue area where the back meets the sides. Looks like they glued it back with either an expanding glue, like gorilla glue or foam. The back is flush and you can't tell from the front. It just bothers me. Has anyone else seen this. Now I want to take the back off to see if the drivers have been replace. Also I noticed last night when I carried the speaker into the house, I had the speaker horns pointed towards the ceiling when I was carrying them, and there was something loose inside the other speaker. It's not loose when the speaker is sitting correctly on the ground, only when it is pointed towards the ceiling. How are the crossovers mounted inside the Hersey? What else could it be? The cones & horns seem tight.
  6. I have some 15" woofers and large horns so I'm looking for some old cabinets to play with. I'm open to Onken, or custom cabs too. Let me know what you have to fit my 15s.
  7. Hey Everyone, First time poster here. I'm going to sound kind of dumb but here we go. My dad just gave me his old pair of Hersey I HBR speakers. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL. Not a single scratch or dent. However, electronics isn't really my wheel house so I was hoping yall could suggest a nice receiver in the hopefully less than $300 range for me to hook it up to as well as maybe some pictures of the wiring (they don't have any wires which, for a millennial used to AUX cords, is confusing). I'm also hoping to get a record player to go with it. I have one now but it's cheap; record wobbles, arm is too light and skips frequently. So suggestion for a solid record player would be appreciated also. Will update as progress comes along!
