Heresy II and Heresy III crossover points and slopes

Hi all!

 

This has probably been answered somewhere before, but I'm not finding it.

 

I'm looking to tri-amp a pair of 1988 Heresy II's I just picked up, and to do the Heresy II->Heresy III conversion on them, and then tri-amp them again.

 

Does anyone have the Heresy II and Heresy III crossover specs?

1) What are the crossover frequencies and slopes?

2) What's the attenuation (padding) of the different drivers?

3) Are any of the drivers polarity inverted?

 

These would be different for the Heresy II, and III -- and I'm looking for both sets of data for before and after the conversion.

 

Thank you!

to convert buy ti tweeter diaphragms from Bob Crites (I prefer them to Klipsch and have found them to be more reliable) and purchase the Klipsch ti mid diaphragm from Simply Speakers (these are factory Klipsch parts and not after market) these two diaphragms are direct drop in to our drivers Heresy or Forte and take only minutes to install. Why not make these mods to a pair of Forte or Forte ll? You will get better bass response and a much better mid horn in the Forte ll. All the drivers are the same. The passive in the Forte ll is a fifteen inch one as opposed to the twelve inch passive in the Forte. The Forte ll is the better option but don't pass on a Forte if you can find a pair and get a good deal. You will never have any trouble selling a well set up set of Forte never.

-just in case you're not aware KLIPSCH charged 300$ per speaker for a kit to modify  the Heresy 2 into a Heresy 3 /  new woofer , a new XO ( square only )-    a new Mids drivers and a new Tweeter assembly ---  

Do they still provide this?  Have been trying to contact Klipsch Support but no response yet.
