Discussion in 'The Klipsch Korner' started by cubdog, Mar 3, 2013.
Welcome aboard JAK!!
Heresy III, KG 1..... had CF4 and KG 4 in the past....
My first was a pair KG 1.5, then I found a pair of SB-3.
My latest is a pair of F2 towers. All three are in use in different systems.
Before my first Klipsch I came across a pair of nice KG 4 with stands. They were not selling, even though the price was pretty good. I waffled because I did not want to spend that much money for a brand I was not familiar with. Now that I am hooked, I am kicking myself for letting the KG 4 get away.
I borrowed from the Cornscalla design to build a smaller pair of cabs, they house 12" woofers and 2 horns. Kind of like ported Heresys.
Had a pair of RF3's, dumped them for Quartets and never looked back.
Also have SB 1's 2's and 3's.
Just picked up a pair of KG 4.5. The highs are a bit muted. I will recap and then decide if I need to put in titanium tweeters.
I heard a big change going from the original tweeter diaphragms to Bob Crites' titanium tweeter diaphragms when I had KG 4.5s...but then I've heard big, positive changes with every Klipsch speaker I've updated the tweeter diaphragms to the titanium versions from BECtoo...
good luck with your choice
I think the Quartets are sweet sounding as well. I sold the planars I had been using for about 10 years.
Herseys 4 sets.
And now I'm confused. I had purchased what I thought were Speaker Lab, Khorn clones. Had another klipsch fan over went thru them tells me these are klipsch. Khorns. I'm not so sure. Everything inside is consistent with the early horns. The woodwork just isn't right!.
I'll continue to call em speaker labs until I have a definitive identification. If they are the real deal, I scored big time.
You guys are awesome, I'm impressed with all the klipsch speakers listed here.
I have Heresy 1's and a pair of Chorus 1's.
I currently have two pairs of Cornwall 1’s and one pair of early Heresy Decorators. I plan on installing Eminence Delta Pro 12A’s in the Heresy’s adding a four inch port to the rear. Swapping out the Type E’s for some Type C’s I recapped, dampin the cabs and horns making sure the cab is sealed up tight. From what I’ve gathered on other forums this is supposed to make the Heresy’s dig low and clean up the lower mids.
Only one pair at this time. A pair of Cornwall 2s first version 1968 ( many refer to as verticals ) I did the crossovers on their 50th birthday and only this week lost a diaphram on one of the k-77s ( my-35 ) as is the standard Bob C. Had a set in my mail box a day and a half later. They are perfect with a 30 watt fisher 400 and equally so with a 200 + watt Dynaco 410. I have owned klipsch in many different phases of the audio journey starting with Klipschorns I bought new in 1977 and in the time until now have had.. heresy 1s , Kg-4s , kg4.5s .Kg5.2s and a couple sets of later reference bookshelf in addition to later sub. The latter reference was not a favorite and my only negative and not that they were horrible but not of the same tree would be a more accurate. I landed on the CWs due to flexibility in my application as the driver placement allows horizontal or vertical attitude. I am a klipsch believer. He knew how to design a speaker !
Thanks P.K! And for taking care of us as you moved on to an even bigger Venue.
Update. Ones I formerly owned:
Heresy II (did not care for them)
Cornwall I (excellent)
SB-3 (gave to friend)
Belle (did not care for them)
Forte III (not bad, but prefer Forte I)
Now own: Heresy III (much better than Heresy II)
Forte I (probably the best all around)
Cornwall III (on par +/- with the Forte I)
Hmmm not seen many Tangents listed here.
My first Klipsch's were kG4's, sold them after i got the Tangent 400's since 2 pairs were 2 much for the missus.
Actually missed the bottom end those little KG4's had, that I reinforced the tangent's enclosures and stuffed them with rockwool.
Now they rock enough where i don't miss the KG4's anymore.
Have 4 RVX-54's, 1 RVX-42 & a RSW-12 for my HT set up.
4 KG1's in oak w/ Ti tweets & rebuilt x/o's
Pair of KG4's in oak w/ Ti tweets & Crites x/o's
Pair of Quartets in oak in line for full updates
Latest acquisition would be a pair of 'One Button' unfinished walnut H3's
Looking for an Academy center in oak to create a KG 7.1 HT system
Hoping to someday find some Khorns, LS's or Belle's but not holding my breath.
KG4s and now a set of 1972 vintage Kornerhorns.
CF-4 Ver 3
Heresy 2 Signature
This is my first post!
Welcome and enjoy!!
