1977 Heresy - Subwoofer question

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

I recently acquired a set of 1977 Heresy speakers. They sound great but I need more bass.

I’m only running a turntable, a Realistic LAB-270.

With a Denon DRA-750 receiver (I believe it’s from 1985)

 

I’d like to get the best subwoofer for this setup.


I’ve heard a 70s receiver might be better & also a crossover upgrade (I’ve emailed Crite’s about this)

 

My system sounds good as is - But some records have better bass than others. I’d like to have more oomph for those that need it.

 

Thanks for any help.

I've been using dual SVS SB-2000 subs with my Heresys for some time now and they're a fantastic combo.

your best  Sonic option for the Crossovers are JEM PERFORMANCE ------     @JEM Performance,  They sell  or install kits of klipsch replacement capacitors that will bring back your speakers to factory specs ,, and yes they cost the same as Aftermarkets  but with 1 exception , they sound better as they deliver the klipsch sound signature that others cannot   -

thanks for the information.

I learned of JEM last night while perusing these forums. I will be contacting him soon.

 

I’m thinking I may get the speakers up to spec first on my list- build up from a solid foundation

My '83 Heresy set benefits from one or two small (10" 100 Watt) subwoofers. I have never tried it with larger subs.

A crossover upgrade isn't going to provide more bass. Neither is a receiver.

Get a subwoofer.

I use a single SVS SB-1000. I'm happy.

Heresy's aren't known for playing low so to get that bottom octave, get a sub.

Connecting a sub to an older receiver has challenges, I doubt your Denon has a sub out, you might need a sub with speaker level inputs.

It has 2 tape loops.  I wonder if one of those could be used as an audio out.
