Klipsch vs. Dynaco A25

Putting together a vintage system with an Marantz 2230 receiver or possibly a McIntosh MC2505/MX113 amp/preamp. I'm wondering which speakers, Klipsch Heresy or Dynaco A25 would be the best way to go without a sub, though I'd like some decent bass. I listen to classic rock, 70s R&B and Cat Stevens-type stuff in a small to midsize living room. I'm open to other speaker suggestions, but I'd like to buy used and under $800.

I don't know much about the Dynaco's but I do know the Heresy's(I,II,III)do not dip down much below 60hz. May I suggest a pair of Forte's(I or II). With them you get great dynamics, match well with tubes, vintage look, and used prices from $400.00 to $600.00. They also have nice bass down to the low 30hz.

I have an Onkyo TX-SR705 as my preamp with a 200w B&K 3 channel powering my Forte's. I think they sound great together but a friend of mine is bringing over his vintage tube amp for a demo soon. He says I will be blown away by the crispness and accuracy of tubes with Forte's.
