Heresy I, II or III VS Academy


Recommended Posts

here's my situation:

I'm in bad need of set-top mounted Front Center, which would sit atop the sony w/

the omni-mount. I was going to get another C-7 for the required

rear surround, but this way I could get the best match for a Cornwall

(well, besides a Cornwall - NOT DOING), & move the ole C-7, currently at FC, back to join

its KLF brothers.

please let my FC C-7 reunite w/ its siblings! :-)

I'm not too excited about mounting any Heresy horizontal &

off-center on the tv-top. but now some are

saying that the Heresy, especially the new Heresy III (?), is the

REAL deal for a match w/ my 1984 Cornwall I.5 fronts.

please help, 'cause I don't think I'd ever be able to listen to an

Academy in person, & as far as I can remember, I've never even

heard a mini-Cornwall - Heresy.

btw, I'm an avid listener/watcher of rock 'n roll music

(& other) & HT movies, concerts by way of cable & dvd.

thanks much.

thanks for the reply j.4k! I have '84 Cornwalls , which if

I remember right (a lil rusty) actually had the newer tweet &

(maybe) mid horn of the Corn II combined w/ the previous woof as found

in the Corn I, the (eminence)E-34. hence the informal moniker "Cornwall I.5".

so if this is correct, the best match would be the Heresy II (?), which I

think is discontinued. If Klipsch would make me a single

one of those in cherry w/ inverted horns, that would be the

ideal. I'd be glad to wall mount it then, though I have a feeling

I'd have stud placement problems there again w/ this new/older house.

mounted an lcd tv by the bar, & the studs were all over - one set

only 3

in. apart & the next one was another 20" away. as w/

murhpy's law, & the mount needing to be directly in bewteen the

stups, I finally had to use a

board, & that tv was only about 20lbs, compared to the Heresy at I

think 45lbs.

I think I agree already. forget the academy & that holy grail

premium. I need the mini-cornwall heresy. that'll be

phase 2 anyway, cause I can use the current C-7 FC now, as it'll be

awhile before I get set-up for 2 C-7 mounted on the backwall for 7.1.

I'm going to commence the wiring tomorrow, in between the NFL

plays. isn't that what the instant replay & the dvr's for

anyway? ;-)

hey DR, check my # of posts. when a thread gets so far off the

original topic, I start a new thread. are ya "one of those"

that goes into "the prettiest girl on the planet" in

a thread started about whether to use both input jacks on a sub?


iow, if you don't have anything constructive to add, MYOB. 'kay? [;)]

& now we're off topic. so, btw, I really enjoyed the Wiesn in Munich last year.

Prost! LOL

ki, thanks, that is a concern, though, sorry I should have mentioned that the Sony SXRD is an RPTV. from what I've

found, the CRT should be the only really vulnerable.

I know that from personal experience w/ my Toshiba TheaterWide CRT,

& installing EIGHT bucking magnets on my KLF-30. [:|]

I have used Heresy I's in various positions including as a center channel and also own an Academy. My preference is the Heresy for center duty. Academy sounds like a small speaker whereas Heresy has fuller voice - not as full as other brothers and the sister (Belle Klipsch) in the Heritege family tree though,,, IMO.

Ki, where/how'd you have the Heresy placed?

I'm really leaning toward the Heresy III new in Cherry, wall mounted

behind TV, speaker Verticle & Upside-down. that's the

only real way I could buy a single Heresy in Cherry quick.

however w/ its new tweeter, concerned the new Heresy III wouldn't be the best timbre match for my Cornwall I.5 fronts.

Why do you continue to ask the same question in different ways, then decide on something that you have already been told won't match? For crying out loud already!

Get a Heresy I from '82-'85 for the perfect match to your '84 Cornwall's and be done with it already!

Or do whatever the hell you want but stop asking the same question over and over. No wonder newbies with questions get jumped on some of us vets get tired of the same schtick over and over.

frnz, hey calm down, dude. like I told the DR, see my # of

posts - I was on here doing thousands of posts when you were in

diapers, junior. in fact, I bet a lot of the so called advice

you're givin' now originated w/ me, though you're too stupid to

remember. LOL

i've been gone for 5 yrs, but I think you're dead wrong. I have

Cornwall I.5. bet you don't even know which horns that

entails. LMAO

if anything, it'd be the Heresy II that match my Cornwall ONE-POINT-FIVES, housekeeper.

now find me a SINGLE Heresy II in Cherry. YOU gonna split a pair? LMAO

I'm gettin' the Hell away from here again, & work w/ folks who know

what the hell they're talkin' about, unlike you & the good DR,

& more like the other nice guys here such as above, besides you & DR

Gertrude. ;-)

actually, though there are STILL some guys here who have stayed active

w/ Klipsch over the last 5 yrs (unlike myself w/ Heritage), & know

their stuff (read: mostly in 2-Channel), I'll be dealing directly w/

the guys at Klipsch.

now, go back to your "prettiest girl on the planet thread". I

remember you when you arrived, AFTER I was much more active here

before & after your arrival, & you don't know WTF you're doin' anymore now than then.

chow! & thanks to everyone here that's NOT an a-hole! [:D]

Well it's official - you are a Dork!

And I know nothing about Klipsch - imagine that. And I certainly don't know anything about Cornwall's either. I suppose you also know that there was a Heresy 1.5 as well Mr. Klipsch genius, that is why you are looking at HIII's.

I thought you were from the "Show Me" state, but don't seem to comprehend and understand the written language.

Enjoy your future mismatched system dude.

Oh and you must have missed this too:

LOL. obviously, it takes one to know one. ;-)

so you joined 2 months or so AFTER me. I've been gone 5 YEARS,

while you've been here the whole time being the major no-life

dweeb. I think the class can figure out the ratio of how

long it took you to get where you ain't. LOL

can't answer my question about 1.5s? figures.

can't address that I need a SINGLE? figures.

& show me where anybody HERE said a Heresy III was NOT a timbre

match for MY Cornwalls. clowns like you wouldn't know a Heresy

III if it bit you on your dumb ***.

you don't even know who you're messin' with, punk. ;-)

What's the matter too scared to formally threaten me? Calling it "Dancing", I don't dance with guys sorry. Perhaps, I should forward your PM to Amy Unger and let her know your intentions. Too bad I am above that and can take care of myself. I have helped more people on this forum hook up with Klipsch than you ever will, you can't even figure out what center goes with your Cornwalls and you dare to call me unknowledgeable, you need to take a good look in the mirror.

You are not even worth my time, troglodyte!

What a testament to your character, wanting to fight at the pilgrimage that would make a fine impression on your host I'm sure.

I know exactly what drivers and crossover networks are in your Cornwalls, but I certainly don't have to answer to you.

And honestly you don't know who your messing with my friend, but you are not worth my time and effort.

You should have stayed gone since you know so damn much.

ohhhhh, a housekeeper AND a snitch - what a dweeb-Mary!

yeah, I'll just go make another 100k THIS month while you waste away

other's time here, being a pedant nerd. then again, that's the


utility for YOUR time, I'm sure. LMAO

take it from me guys, after working my A$$ off & helping people

left & right here for a couple years 5 years ago, this place ain't

worth your time. though there are many great & knowledgeable

folks here, it still ain't worth your time w/ the clown scum like this, which are only here 'cause they have absolutely no other

life. hell, what woman would ever want to go near

such a nerd AND an a-hole. LMAO

so tell me Dr Freeze or whatever it is, (rhetorical question)

specifically which horns do MY original '84 Cornwalls have,

egghead? yeah, I thought so (hard, if not impossible, to

google it, LOL)

now I know why Keith & other great ones of the past stay away from

here. though, nothing against the great guys still

here. nothing against Klipsch either - still a great

company. such is the internet today. [:|]

good luck & happy listening, except to the s-heads! [:D] [:P]
