Best guides or videos for interior disassembly?? Special tools? Both rears are blown in 1993 ex cab and rear passenger shoulder belt is stuck. One blown in 1997 ex cab rear, and the other sounds like dogshit. I do not want to break any plastics if possible.

That's the exact same amplifier I've got, in tandem.

I know, you recommended it to me. :lol:

A while back one of these conversations spiraled into Klipsch speakers and then subsequently the Adcom amps. I need to get more than 40WPC to my Heresys...

I'm no help with the '93, but the Crutchfield Master Sheet on the '95+ interiors can be found here.

Oh, that was you lol. I recalled the conversation as I was typing, just wasn't exactly sure you were the one I recommended it to lol.

I remember that conversation too. The Adcom will calm those Klipsch's down just right and you'll be delighted with the SPL levels, doubt you'll ever see the clip lights. If you want more bass down low, check into a set of Cornwalls from the 70's with a Crites B-2 crossover or a set of Forte II or Chorus II's. I never got to run my Cornholes with the Adcom amps but I'm betting they'd be magical. Sort of looking for another set to try out in the house- don't feel like dragging the set in the garage back in the house..

Cornwalls as garage speakers? You mad man. :lol:

If (when) I upgrade from my Heresys I'd love to try out a set of LaScalas. That's my real dream set of Klipsch. Klipschorns would be awesome but I just have absolutely no place to put them and they're definitely out of my price range anyway.

LoL yup, I hear that a lot about military dudes. What did you have?

If a fella just wants to replace something toasted, sure. But if we're talkin' "Best" then I'm going to get pretty picky.

All of my home audio stuff is old. It's JBL/Adcom/Ashly. Although the speakers were something nifty when they were new. Certainly the best I've heard. I can still hear every nuance, it's just I've got tinnitus setting in. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I didn't have the great stuff you guys had but I had a Sansui amp, 9001 I think it was, Kenwood -888 speakers, a dual Technics cassette player, Technics turntable and a well used Teac reel to reel that had one channel that only worked half the time. I'm no music critic but I sure did like that stuff. And being a teenager when I bought it all, it was always cranked. Probably a contributor my hearing loss. Lol.

Hey, at least it wasn't Bose. All of the mfg's were supposed to be really good in the day, especially Sansui. It's getting to be cost prohibitive to try it out though.

LoL yes, I got tired of hearing my neighbors with their domestic disputes. I figured if I was going to do something, might as well be over the top about it. Also, these Cornwalls are BEAT. Although my wife liked the look of them, said you can see they have history.

The reviews on the LaScalas leave more to be desired.. A Cornwall uses the same components as a K-horn.. After having listened to both a Cornwall and a Forte II, the Forte II has a smoother top end which reaches farther and deeper bass than the Cornwall. WHich is why I'd like to get my hands on a set of Chorus II's, as those incorporate both a passive radiator and a 15" woofer... Best part is, they can all be had for less than 1,800 right now. There's a set of Cornwalls in my neighborhood for $1,500 right now..

Hm.. Maybe I will have to check out a set of Cornwalls again. I had a chance to listen to some for a while once years ago but for some reason I didn't think they sounded as good as what I was used to from growing up with Heresys. Maybe the set I heard had a flaw or were in the wrong room. The crossovers in them might have been beat now that I think about it, they were pretty old and had a hard life. Adding Crites crossovers to my Heresys was a huge improvement.

I've never heard any of the Forte series, I'll try and check those out too.

THe Cornholes sold.. If I didn't have money going elsewhere I might have scooped them up.

Mine had the original type B crossovers. The Crites B-2's were a remarkable difference. Room placement is critical and so is amplification & preamp selection. Ultimately why I'd like to see what they'd sound like now, given I've got better stuff.

Avoid the Forte I, midrange sounds like it's coming from a tin can. Definitely snatch a set of Cornholes if you can.
