Klipsch Heresy Owners Group

Westcoastdrums,

 

when I got the stands I feared the Heresys would become 'lean', but they are as full-bodied and have as much bass as their specs allow and as can be desired. I must say that I only regret the original plinths on the grounds of aesthetics. I sincerely feel no need for a sub. I am aware that the use of 'full' stands is often recommended here, but in all honesty I have been a member of the Naim Audio forum for years and I think I have learned to think with my own head and listen with my own ears. 🙃

 

Thanks for your contribution,

Max

Have a set of '81 HBR H1's which were pretty rough looking when I picked them up. Made new rear panels with 5-way posts, re-sealed them, new midrange horn gaskets and a new veneer using white oak. Also threw some solid maple risers together to finish the look. Oh and rebuilt Type-E crossovers since I had all the parts laying around and selling the originals paid for the veneer.

Those are beautiful. You should be proud of your work on those.

@Westcoastdrums... very interesting! I bet you weren’t expecting that much difference... but all is well now?

Well, I haven't critically listened to them yet. Just had them put in the garage screwing with them and did a little shindig at work with them in a LARGE room. I had to pick soem jaws up off the floor, but now they have new tweeters.... Haha. I was shocked. I have owned A LOT of Klipsch Speakers and have never seen the ball dropped so strongly before..

A lot of great Heresy set-ups i see here! 

This week i changed the gaskets of the mid-horns on mine, quick and easy. Fourty years have gotten the old seals very flat and "semi-flexible"... Everything was tight with the old seals, still, with the new seals imaging seems to have improved. This could be coincidence, since i wiggeled some wires here and there and the cabinets positions have changed a little bit, i guess. Have to listen to more music still.

Anyway, i like what i´m hearing.

Check this out, my KP250s are 2 serial numbers apart and one is ported, one isn't.  One was a pain in the *** to install Dave A's LMAHL tweeters on, the other easy.   I feel I should get a few pair of heresy IV B stock for the slip up.   It's only fair...

Previous owner was the original owner that, purchased the in the 90s he told me.  He was a classical music composer and he loved these speakers and took them with him all over the place. When I took the tweeter and squawker out, the wood make a nice "crack" sound (first time taken apart certainly).   Great find I say.

OK, but that still doesn't explain how one is ported and the other is not....?
