Glad you are in musical bliss. Never owned tubes but have heard them with many a Klipsch Heritage and the combination is magical.
Been putting off my recap for my Heresy 2's way too long. Recapped my Heresy 1's about 10 years ago and and added one of Bob's custom tweeters the CT-125. Woke those old tired babies right up.
Excellent !....Most Klipsch subs have a high level input ( speaker terminals ), so if your model does, it hooks up via another set of speaker wires from the amp output, without disturbing anything. Also, use Dynamat, or Peel and Seal, to dampen the mid horn. A big upgrade in cleanliness, imo, and, ime. Enjoy !
Very cool. I have a set of Heresy 1s and a set of Quartets in regular use. The Quartets are hooked up to a Vincent SV 500 and they really sing. I used damping material on all the horns and found the sound much more to my liking. No other upgrades yet but capping the crossovers is in the future. The knowledgable Klipsch guys say to consider elevating Heresys. You might consider. Good listening.
Glad you are liking your setup.
I too started with a Yaqin MC-13s with my Klipsch Forte III.
I did the Russian PIO caps upgrade myself with the Yaqin and it sounded way more smoother than the sand cast stock caps.
Eventually I upgraded to a Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum and finally to a Line Magnetic SET amp but still using my Klipsch Forte III.
I'm sure i'm on the money sucking never ending path to improvements and upgrades. I'm already looking at Cornwalls.I would like a newer speaker though. To tell the truth, half the reason i like the Klispch speakers is how they look. They look like they will pump out warm full sound. And even the smallest of them like i have (H2's) do just that. Modern speakers probably sound better, but they are too small, ha ha, sounds funny to complain about that being an issue as most would like the speaker to take up less space. We had Klipsch Horns in my Fraternity house back in the day and i was ruined from then on. Thanks for the PIO upgrade info
i figured out how to use powere sub that doesnt have multi outs just one set of rca. I use an rca jack with +\- wires for each plug and i plug into the rca out from powered sub and thread one set of rca wires to the +\- screw terminals for left channel on amp and do same with other for right channel, keeping banana plugs connected to speakers from amp of course. Signal goes to sub Without robbing from speaker signals .
