@Peter P. In another thread You mentioned:

 

"If I were to connect the kg sw to the 2nd channel outputs, I would have even greater bass because the Heresy II's would continue to run full-range, ADDING to the sub's output."

 

Have You run this option or are you satified with connecting the SW like Klipsch intended?

I prefer to run the sub and Heresy's separately because it makes it easy to compare with/without the sub, but quite frankly I do that so rarely I should just hook them up as the kg sw intended and let the high pass filter do its thing.

Ok, so it´s been delivered... but. - I haven´t connected it yet, only measured ohms, the drivers seem to be ok, high setting gives about 9 ohms, low is about 5. But the cabinet needs a rebuild, all four corners are banged up, badly, even the MDF took a beating. It looked ok on the Ebay pictures, so my guess is our postal service dropped it a few good times. Packaging wasn´t enough to handle 20 kilos of speaker i guess, i feared as much without original boxing.

Gonna hook them up tomorow and see if the drivers are good. Also pictures tomorow.

On the plus-side, the cable i got to connect the 1.5s and the SW looks pretty sharp.

This will be a bigger project than i thought.

Here´s some pictures. It´s no impossible task and i might learn something. My colleague is a carpenter and he will help me out for sure, so not all is lost.IMG_20210117_131632.thumb.jpg.6b0e9a2aaf7d14cde36605eceec7c679.jpg

I would file a damage report for this. It is shameful and you should receive financial compensation. 

 

Also, I would sand it to wood and stain it brown. You'll have to work on this anyhow now. On second thought.after repair, painting it black will hide the reparation.

a Carpenter can fix this stuff very easily , with wood filler , then using  a  technique with Air brush  spray , you couldn't even tell the difference  , unless you looked very close --------worse scenario  , repaint it  -

Well, actually i was thinking about getting rid of the old verneer (bummer, because i think it was walnut...), fixing the cabinet and re-verneer in oak, since my 1.5s are oak too.

 

On the sonic-side, the box seems to be working, just have to find the right placement for optimum base.

Wood putty, some gentle sanding, and black stain. If you find the side panels themselves have pulled apart, you can square up the box with a small ratchet strap used to repair furniture.

Drive finishing nails in, countersink them, then fill the holes with a furniture repair pencil.

 

I performed a similar nail repair on my Heresy's and it's invisible.
