I like that, good bye Ti for the mid.

Hopefully poly sounds as good as phenolic.

Which is it?

  • A three-way design using horn-loaded Titanium diaphragm midrange and high-frequency compression drivers
  • All-new K-702 midrange compression driver, featuring a polyimide diaphragm, for exceptional detail

Okay, so either no proofreading or the editing done by someone with little-to-no knowledge of the actual products.

It would be really nice to hear some user reviews and videos on the new Heresy IV. Seems like the new improvements may be quite a nice alteration but it's so new at this point.

Getting it to market so late in the year likely will crimp holiday sales. I fear the price will lead to them eventually being sold out of the backs of trucks or warehouse doors as seconds or blems, the way the H3 glut was managed. I guess it's nice to refresh but selling at 3K i think bumps up against the limit of what consumers beyond the faithful will pay. Some say you will still need a sub to get the full range. Not sure what is gained is worth the outlay.

You're forgetting that the riser is attached to the H IV, which gives the PERCEPTION that it is three inches taller in those pics, when it is really around an inch taller, instead!

 

Why wait to read reviews...just go and give them a listen, instead!  Let your ears be your own personal "review"!

here are the dimensions of the H1-H2-H3 -- H IV -  The speaker is 3 inches higher -----------

 

The Heresy IV-- height  24.81” -----width -----15.5” -depth -----13.25” ---------weight -45lbs -

 

The Heresy 1 ---height 21.3/8 "  -------width 15.5"  --------depth 13,1/8"  ------weight 55 lbs -

 

The Heresy 2 ---height 21.3/8 "  -------width 15.5"  --------depth 13,1/4"  ------weight 37 lbs -

 

The Heresy 3 ---height  21.81 "  -------width 15.5"  --------depth 13,1/4"  ------weight 44 lbs -

Think I get that about the height, etc on the IV, but a couple of pics show them sitting flat on the floor, or just appear to be.

Read where the base is angled 5 degrees back.

Just wondering...

That reminds me, when do the cat friendly grilles become available ?

my cat made a mess of my grilles , years ago , he used to stretch his nails on them , my other cat was worse , yep keep cats away from Klipsch black grilles , something  just attracts cats  to the Heritage fabric -

 the new HIV cab is higher , and that helps the new Type badge to not interfere with the tweeter if you notice the badge is placed - in the space above the tweeter  and not in the way of the tweeter as it is on some newer Heritage models --

Also, may understand that the added height allows more room for rear port placement!?!

the rear port is an air extractor with a port flow design ,  it accelerates air flow out of the cab to balance the volume of the air in the cab -My guess is that an H III should benefit with  more bass with the addition of this new port --

Start from the middle of the frame and work your way to the corners keeping the cloth straight as you go along.

I guess when somebody measures it, I would venture to guess the port is not an air extractor for relieving pressure inside the cabinet but tuned to a particular frequency to augment the bass response of the woofer.  Somebody with a frequency sweep and H IVs should be able to tell what that tuning is by when the woofer movement appears to stop (or shall say minimum motion).

I would venture to say that the 2 functions, that of releiving cabinet pressure and tuning frequency are inseparable and dependent upon the other. Subtle point taken and clear ...thanks
