I have a 10wpc Voice of Music 1448 tube amp, and one of the most recommended speakers for low powered tube amps is the Klipsch Heresy. I won a pair of walnut Heresy II's for $341 on eBay from a local seller and picked them up yesterday. I love their punchiness, and they are considerably louder and more detailed than the Bose 501 Series 2's that I had been using. With my VM tube amp, the speakers put out a perfect amount of bass with the EQ knobs set at 12 o'clock on my amp. With other speakers, I've had to roll off the bass considerably. I have never had speakers with horns before, and like a lot of people, I found the Heresys to be overly forward and bright, and got ear fatigue within a short time. How disappointing! So, I turned to the SH Forum archives for advice. Back on 6/4/06, rjp posted: I didn't find any kleenex in the house, so I used some 2-ply toilet paper instead. Holy cow, what an improvement!!!!!! The shrillness is gone, there is no loss in detail, and there is just the right amount of top end! The lower frequencies seem better defined since they aren't getting blown out by the horns, and it's so much more musical. I am very pleased right now!
