What does a turntable guy do in his spare time?

Of course, he upgrades his speakers! A few years back, I undertook upgrading my Klipsch Cornwalls with the Crites crossovers and tweeters. That was an amazing upgrade for those speakers. I knew once that was complete, that eventually I would do the same to my Klipsch Heresy which are in more of a social system upstairs.

So, last night, I disassembled them. Since this is a more social area, I wanted to have the cabinets re-veneered for a long time. So I emptied the cabinets completely and I will hand those off to my woodworker shortly. There is a lot of honey pine in our living space, some I am thinking I will go with a nice cherry.  Still subject to change.

In the meantime, I will purchase what I need for the crossover upgrade. I actually have not 100% decided if I’m going to upgrade the tweeters. I probably will, but we will see. Anyway, here are some pictures of the disassembly process. Unfortunately, I didn’t think to take a picture of the pair before I started it. DOH!

I don’t mean this blog to be a definitive how to for the project, I just thought I would let you know how a foolish turntable guy spends his spare time…
