Klipsch Heresy IV vs. The World!

Trying to balance my audiophile hobby with my marriage. My current system is built around Heresy IVs with Manley electronics. I've heard better speakers but none that offer a similar form factor. The Heresy are about 2 foot tall and blend in nicely with out low slung furniture in our open plan house. I love the sound of the DeVore o/93 and 96 but they are significantly larger/taller. Haven't heard the o/babys. I could add some fast little REL subs to flesh out the Heresy but open to suggestions. Does anyone know of a shorty speaker that offers world class performance? High efficiency a big plus as I love 300b SET. Thanks!


Well I didn't get in before you pulled the trigger.


If the Devore's don't stick around... I would try Wayne Parham at Pi Speakers in Bella Vista, Arizona. He has a few models that fit your request. They are custom made and you have options on driver choices based on your budget. They are built well and are efficient enough for your Manley kit.

@scotandholly thanks for the tip, I'll definitely check those out. Also talking to Louis at Omega about my needs. Hard to pull the trigger on speakers you haven't heard that have almost no reviews. 

Omega's should be on your list for sure, different sound albeit. I am a staunch supporter of small business. The Pi recommendation is really in your wheel house. Also similar, Audiokinesis has some offerings that you may like. Again the designer, Duke LeJeune, designs speakers based on horns and high efficiency. Check out James Romeyn's site, he is the distributor for Audiokinesis. Or, just reach out to Duke, he is extremely welcoming and knows his sh_t.
