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
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.
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!
