Klipsch Heresy 1982 model

A fellow near me is selling a pair of these speakers for $750. He says he is the original owner and they were in good shape with no modifications done. Is this a good price for the speakers?

great speaker (in my opinion in the top 5) but 1982 makes for some really old crossovers, they might need to be replaced. 750 is a good start on some brand new ones! (well I said a start).
I took care of my 1979 JBL 4311's but the crossovers dried up around 2005.

Music, more music.

They use to sell for under $500 regularly but I guess prices have gone up. I would offer $600-650 and maybe you could meet in the middle. I would think they would be selling slowly right now with the lock down so that maybe in your favor. I have a pair I bought new in 1982. They are great speakers for rock, jazz and country. They can play at concert levels without breaking a sweat. I added a 12" sub to my set up at the time and it added a little extra low end. I did "recap" mine about 7-8 years ago and it was an improvement worth the effort if your handy with a soldering iron. Go to the Klipsch web site and join there forum section and you will find tons of info on the heritage speakers. I have retired mine for a pair of Goldenear Triton 2+ but I still hang on to them ... just in case.

The lazy man finds the easiest way ... Ben Franklin

Rouge Audio Cronus Magnum II integrated amp, Goldenear Technology's Triton 2+ speakers, Schiit Bifrost Multibit Dac, Technics SL-1200MK2 turntable with Audio Technica 440ml cartridge, Teac X-1000R reel to reel, custom computer as main music source

I love the heritage line.

This is coming from a former Heresey and Cornwall owner.

Thanks for the info and advice. I think I will offer him $500 and go from there. Luckily I am handy with a soldering iron.
