Klipsch are very addictive. Search Craigslist for local sales. Should find some nice examples. To blow away your buddy's Heresys try a pair of Cornwalls. You can pick them up for $500-800. Heresys would go for $300-500 depending on finish and condition.I don't own any, but I lust for some old Klipsch's. A budd has four Heresies and it's a sound I could get used to.
Look in this link for Orange County Speaker and The Speaker Exchange. These are two of the better places to look for speaker components for older speakers. If they don't have them they may know where to look.I have a pair of Technics SB-F3 speakers. They are vintage 1982-83. They are unique in that they have very good quality aluminum enclosures and were decent speakers in their time.
The horn tweeter has failed in one of them and I'm looking for a sutable replacement. They are mounted using 3 screws 120 degrees apart on a 3" diameter circle.
The horn tweeter has a part number EAS-7HH05SA, but I have been unable to track a replacement down. Can someone help me with this?
As long as the cost was reasonable, I would love to upgrade both speakers to be more equivalent to Polk LSi's since I think that they could make great rear surround speakers.
WOW, I have not listened to those in years. Very good speakers. I got one for you, the old DC series CROWN amplifiers. I used to deejay with them, they were great. Also, Bob Carvers PHASE LINEAR amplifiers. More expensive, but wonderful.Ok, who is still seduced by vintage audio? There are quite a few followers of the 1970s classics. Double Large Advents anyone?
