Klipschguy Posted March 19 Share Posted March 19 Greetings, I am restoring a pair of Heresy I speakers that will require a new pair of woofers. The replacement will be the Klipsch K28e, which is also found in the Heresy III & IV (the III is sealed, while the IV is ported). The restoration project will keep the original, sealed configuration. By my calculation, without any damping material (like the Heresy I originally was designed), the K28e with give a Q of about .9 which leaves the system a little under damped (if .7 is the goal). My question is how much damping does the Heresy III have? I would be interested to know the material, the size, the thickness, and how it is placed in the cabinet. I figure Klipsch has correctly figured out the correct damping for the K28e in a Heresy cabinet, so the information should be helpful for a proper restoration. Also, I am quite willing to buy the part (foam damping) from Klipsch if they sell it. Thank you, kindly, Andy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
