That is true but i have run that song "i love you bass" on my 7s and they fill the room with bass.

Most bang for the Klipsch buck in HT,is,pre-owned Heritage (I mean the original Heritage series-Klipschorn, Belle, La Scala, Cornwall, Heresey, not the discontinued later Klipsch lines which were later adopted in "Heritage" for marketing reasons).

I had a nice Reference setup up, and sold it. gave me a "do over" opportunity. All real Heritage HT pre-owned and tweaked HT for about the same cost as new RF7s and friends grouping in a 7 channel setup,

Just something for you to consider since you are starting over. . . . A little patiece in locating pre-owned Heritage and learning a little recapping you can have an amazing all Heritage speaker HT.

But, with a cache of cash and no patience, a great RF7II setup or even RF82IIs with center and friends can be a nice setup to greatly enjoyminnyour room.

I,am, myself, very glad, few have patience to shop for pre-owned Heritage big boys, ot to,learn how to recap and tweak them . . . That has left them pretty easy to buy in my market since few people in my area buy pre-owned original Heritage in my area, and thereforemI am able to get amazing buys and have out two amazing HT original Heritage setups in my little log cabin on them lake.

I had a wonderful RF82 matched 7.1 system I bought all new in the summer of 2008. Loved it,for four yrars. Bought a pair of KG2s and recapped. Wow! What an amazing sound! Then bought two sets of KG4sm.,.,. Recapped. Wower!

Found out about the Klipsch original Klipsch Heritage line . . A little over,1 and 1/2 years now, I have managed to buy and repair on my own 4 Khorns, 4 Belles, 4 La Scalas, and 4 Heresys (quietly and patiently looking for 2 more pair of WO Heresys)

Love thr Reference line; but if you plan to buy Reference 7IIs or RF82IIs at new prices, you might wan to sloe dozen and think ore-owned original Heritage speakers . .
For nesrlymthemsame price as a reference new, I have put together two home original Heritage set ups . . . An 11.1 and a 7.1 for not much more than buying an Raf7II and friends.

And the WAF ROCKETED, friends love the, most of all, the original a heritage HT are eye-candy that sound . . . Well, the most amazing speakers I have ever heard, which includes all of the Klipsch Reference speakers (which are in themelves amazing speakers).

Just my opinion.

just asking but what marketing reasons would they have? Those speakers are discontinued and have no value to klipsch.

Kipsch called them extended heritage when they first came out
If that means anything to anyone smile.gif (like the chorus,forte, and quartet)

No this was for a 7 year old Denon home theater in a box. It was a nice system at the time $900 new from best buy but it seriously lacks the newer tech. These speakers that came with it will be used until we move and I can get the theater sorted out. Also the house we just bought has some really nice networking with 5.1 system up stairs and 5.1 down stairs for the living room and family room. The speakers are all in wall or in the ceiling I don't know what they are. Haven't had a chance to take the grills off but if the other stuff in the house is telling I am guessing that they are good in wall speakers

I believe the 4520 is the 4311 replacement but the X4000 has everything the 4311 has plus more.

Hey folks. I will be mounting my KS-525'S as mid surrounds. The speaker ia effectively an obtuse isosceles triangle (math ftw) with the speakers on the two short sides. If I mount it at 90º, should the point of the triangle face my ears, or is there some other orientation to a dipole speaker? These will be ceiling mounted with a swivel and hinge adjusted mount.

Thx in advance for help!

Move shelves toward corner to make room directly across from rear sofa placement

Appreciate any thoughts or comments...

I would try them up high on the side first. It might be really good smile.gif

But the X4000 has some features the 4520 does not, & vice versa.

4520 remains the flagship.

I believe your ears are supposed to be in what they call the "dead zone so that the sound can surround you....so the point is supposed to face your ears.....if you're using them as side surrounds...

Me, three. Only Marketing was to call the current, in production 4, Heritage.

My degrees are in Marketing & Armor, as in M1A1 Abrams.

Huh? I'm lost. Reasons for what? You quoted about buying used Heritage... And the Klipschorn, Cornwall, La Scala and Heresy are not discontinued, unless this just happened?

Read the post i was replying to. He said they call those speakers Heritage for marketing reasons. And i was asking what marketing reasons would there be?

The discontinued speakers i was talking about was the chorus, fortes and quartet

post #25341 of 35395
After looking at numerous mounts online and not finding anything I liked I drove to Lowes to look around. Didn't know what i was looking for but was thinking some long screws or wire to mount the surrounds at an angle. After about the third or fourth isle I was ready to get our of there when I saw a big black plate looking thing.

Hmmm, a pair of ornamental strap hinges. The light bulb went on and thought these would be perfect. Pulled out my tape measure to check the bolt pattern and voila! Exactly 6" and same as the RS7s biggrin.gif Off to the chain isle and a box of black decorative chain and I'm out of there. Plenty of hardware at my house so I'm good to go.

So all in all for 26 bux my dilemma is solved.....put one up just as a dry run and works perfect. cool.gif

















Sorry for so many pics but might help someone else who doesn't want obtrusive mounts and save a few bucks as well...gonna finish up over the weekend when my wire and cables get here

Not sure I understand the question . . . Pointing out that the big Klipsch Heritage vintage speakers can be had-pre owned at a great value when compared to buying new upper Reference II series speakers, if you can learn simple recapping and/or driver replacements. You just do not get a warranty.

Not talking about the extended vintage Heritage line, or whatever Voxx International wants to call them for marketing purposes.

So, the question is?

Sancho me emailed me back and said send them back as these will fit better. I measured the slots in the plastic speaker terminal

on my older Cornwalls and these will slide in the slots and the small screw heads will hold them down. Good guy to deal with, if

I had looked at his index on the left of the add you will see he has many different spades etc. He has some cool adaptors etc.

How are the other style banana plugs you purchased from him working out?

lol you said voxx called them Heritage for marketing purposes. Read my ? what marketing purposes would they have on speakers they dont even make anymore?
Why care to market anything that is gone and dead. I did not get your comment so that was why i asked.

I agree that they are a great value and great speakers.
