In Reply to: RE: I've heard so many bad things about these loudspeakers... posted by genungo on May 26, 2012 at 03:06:33
There are many people in the same boat. Those who have never heard them, but continue to criticise them.
There a ton of them available on the used market for about $300/pair.
Why not listen to them first and then decide?

I've never heard a Klipsch speaker that sounded like real instruments. Maybe the price point for the used ones is a clue.
I am curious about what speakers, at the same price point, you would recommend?
"Why not listen to them first and then decide?"
Because that would violate one of the cardinal rules of buying speakers: Ask for opinions on the Internet, and then decide, without hearing them first. ;)
But really, I don't have any recommendations at $150 each. Sorry. I suppose the Heresy is as good as anything for the money, I've just never liked the sound of any of the horn-loaded Klipsch's, so I wouldn't buy them at any price point - why spend my money on something I don't like, even if it's cheap? But that's just me. On the other hand, some people like them, and still others might want them for efficiency and are willing to EQ the sound to their taste. Heck, I EQ the speakers I've got, but I like their sound even without it.
I might be tempted to try Heresys but I already own a pair of Klipsch KG 4.2 speakers. I was surprised when I found out how smooth these sounded, not harsh or boomy.

I find the tweeter in the original Heresy to be nasty, bright sounding with no real high end.
The Heresy II switched to a much better sounding tweeter, and Bob Crites sells a replacement for the original Heresy that sounds better.
