Expensive a$$ woofers at 210.00 each new.  I think this was updated to be more the Super Hersey II But I dont keep up with all that. If I had a space / place to use them I would when placed on a 12" stand the image like mad and sound really nice

Whoever might be considering these, I will tell you that the imaging of the speakers is absolutely remarkable. Actually some of the best I have ever heard and I’ve heard a lot.

Never put them side by side with the Forte IIIs, but angled up and adjusted in the corners of an appx 28x24 room with a 17' vaulted ceiling they accomplished what @ClaudeJ1 intended. They produce a large spacious sound. If I wasn't downsizing they would still be here.

And I just sent Joe a PM. I have a need to match my Walnut Pair. What goes around comes around, I guess!

Are you speaking of that specific pair, or of Super Heresys in general?

Let me just tell you @ClaudeJ1 the mid to high end on those resemble La Scalas. Blew my old H IIs away except for the impactful part due to the port.

& I did not even consider dialing them back internally.

Not joking.

But before anyone jumps I did say "resembles".

I don't know what you mean by this part of your comments.

Surprised Mr. Man!

After having the H2s for almost thirty years I knew what they sounded like, the Supers were better than my old ones.

A component on the x-over had different places to connect the wiring that could dial up or back the dbs on the tweeter, positive you'd know about that. There are diagrams at this site or somewhere to that. The very good imaging was due in part to this I think. A sealed box Heresy will hit you with the cannons in the 1512 1812 Overture, a ported box speaker isn't the same. Improved bass response over that era's Heresy is obvious. Mid-bass sounded better with those newer woofers from your SH2 plans.

Cannon technology was much improved by 1812.

Thanks for the more detailed description. When I do mods, I like to hear the opinion of others' ears and experiences. Although, I have yet to hear of any negative comments.  As long as the builders follow a reasonably close execution of the original recipes, I'm pretty sure I will not hear any negative opinions in the future.
