I have Hersey's and Forte's I love the Forte's but the Hersey's sound really nice with a sub. They sound quite nice to me for their size. They'll also be a smaller package overall which will address your size concerns. I went with the new rp280fs because they are big speakers that take up a small space. I can pot up one amp for the big bookshelf speakers - or the other one for my Heresys.

Sounds like a motivated seller. If it crosses over at 80 Hz or below, you probably won't be able to locate it with your ears. I don't want to use a subwoofer to get the bass response. Love the older wood models as you but these are what im getting ready to try but I'm waiting for the rest of my station to arrive. Again, thanks a bunch for you guys' ideas and recommendations. I use the Forte's for 2-channel, and have three Hersey's a cross the front, with a sub, for home theater. The only compromise would be that you'll want a subwoofer, but I think hearing them makes any compromise seem reasonable.

In your case, you'll have to make trade-offs. The rest of the stuff I'm waiting on is all emotiva gear. Don't worry about age-related hearing problems - they are a fact of life, it seems. A subwoofer usually can be hidden on the side wall, or behind a couch, etc. Another concern when buying used is getting them home --- all I have is a mid-sized sedan.

But I definitely appreciate all your ideas and comments, guys! I've seen people neatly string their subwoofer cable up the side of the door frame, across the top, and down the other side. Might have to follow John Warren's links and plan on a road trip to Kansas City to check out the options there. They come in a rolled up package, and take a week or more to flatten out. Klipsch believed four principles to be the foundation for great sound. These guys on here all have a lot of knoledge so I'm just a guy that loves music. The sub woofer may be harder to locate in a real wood finish, but they're usually tucked away in a corner so it may matter less to you.

I'm driving them with a 30 year old Sony 60 wpc receiver. Together, these four design principles—high efficiency with low distortion, controlled directivity, flat frequency response, and wide dynamic range—have and always will be the foundation for our stunningly powerful and precise sound. I am not missing much in low bass with either speaker, I feel. I bought mine used and both fit in the back seat of my Saturn. The R-15M's use an aluminum tweeter. I live in a very small town, and likely I'm the only guy owning a decent stereo system, so no way to audition other Klipsch speakers locally. Looks totally unobtrusive, matching the tan carpet.

Do the Heresy or Quartets use foam speaker surrounds, which would pose a concern when buying used?. Edited December 15, 2016 by mr clean Have you heard a set of em yet? I know Klipsch speakers are on their big sale this time of year, but without hearing them in my own room, I hate to invest in anything that doesn't sound appreciably better than I already have. If the single cable insulation is the same color as the door frame trim, it might not be readily noticeable. Klipsch are a love em or hate em type deal with the horns. To be honest, the only larger Klipsch speakers I've listened to, and that was very briefly, were a set of R-28F's at Best Buy, which were the best speakers that Best Buy carried in the store.

The speakers you asked about use rubber, not foam. Ive only heard a few klipschs in my life and they all sounded great but had a few systems in the 70s and 80s. He owes it to himself to hear both the Heresy's and the kg4. These play lower and louder than Heresy I's and that's not to disparage the Heresy, which can stand on their own. If space is a concern, I'll put in a good word for the Heresy. Plus, I may be relocating to a condo in the next year, so I may need an even smaller sound system than I currently have.
