Stellar Curbside Find

STELLAR CURBSIDE FIND NEAR PITTSBURGH

 

My husband is over the moon.  He found these Heresy speakers by the side of the road this morning on his way back from doing errands. 

"I've been wanting a pair of these my whole life.  Couldn't afford them back in the day, so had to settle for JBLs"

 

From all the great info on this site, I think they are...

 

  • Pair of 1978 Klipsch Heresy I speakers
  • built by Andy, assisted by Steve
  • sanded by gold ol' chain smoking Ola Mae Davis
  • tested by NW Bradford (a guess only, from comparing the tiny bit of legible signature with images from comparable Ebay listings)
  • slant risers - not exact same wood
  • although missing most of labels and the top back corner of one of them is pretty bunged up, appear to be in decent, original condition.
  • Hubby says they are oiled walnut
  • Guesstimate $800 value plus shipping for the pair (if they work) (but not planning on selling them)

 

Have I gone astray anywhere?  Does anyone have anything to add?

 

Haven't tested them yet.  Any advice in that department?

 

Thanks, in advance, for any info | help | advice !

Value is more in the $300-400 range in that condition.

yes , the average price in good condition is 500-600$ , so these are worth less as they need some refinishing ,the  badges are missing -------did you audition  these speakers

Congratulations and welcome.  I look forward to a report regarding their function.  

 

It’s important to verify the operation of the tweeters.  If the woofers or midrange aren’t working it’ll be obvious, not so with tweeters. The simplest way is to put an ear to the tweeter while blocking the output from the midrange.

Haven't tested them yet. Might be a few weeks now, as we just left town for a few weeks.

What?  That's when the spiders crawl out.  You should have tested them first.
