Heresy Center Channel Match

Recommended Posts

Did/does Klipsch make a reasonable center channel match for Heresies?  Academy?

I tried an Academy with my Heresys.  I did not like the sound at all.  While the Academy may be a great 'traditional' center speaker, nothing holds a candle to the Heresy center I'm now using with Heresy mains.

Heresy II does a really good job between my La Scalas, too...

I know the "timbre matching" is supposedly off, but I've used a KSF C-5 more than once with Heresey's & it works great! Roughly the same sensitivity, & if anything the tractrix horn makes dialog super clear.

 

Check ebay/FB marketplace, they're available & reasonably priced all the time (or maybe a forum member here has one to sell...)

I would say the Academy, KG 2.5, KG 2.2, and KV-3 and in that order while not a perfect match they work well and sound good.  I use a KG 2.2 in between some '77 Heresy Decorators in my bedroom system and it blends reasonbly well for all intensive purposes.  Also have Heresy rears and KG-1 side surrounds in the room.  Obviously a third Heresy is truly the best choice if you have ever had three identical matching speakers up front you know what a difference it makes.
