The other day I was looking through ebay out of boredom and ran into a set of vertical Cornwall II's the seller claimed were from the 60's. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vtg-1960-s-Klipsch-Cornwall-II-2-Speakers-Stereo-Hi-Fi-Unaltered-1st-Owner-/110799938890?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item19cc30e54a#ht_2481wt_1396 Having already looked at http://www.klipsch.com/cornwall-ii-floorstanding-speaker and http://www.klipschcorner.com what seems sometimes like a million times I sent him a message saying he may want to check for himself being careful not to end up in a dispute. I sell on ebay all the time, thought it neighborly to warn him if he has facts messed up. His response though was very forward and assured he was correct, stating Bob Crites himself stated the G in the serial dictated the speakers were made in the 60s.
I didn't respond but in googling to double check I didnt give poor advice to this cocky seller I found this thread right here where a person is saying his series II verts are from 71 because of the J in the serial. http://community.klipsch.com/forums/p/140339/1428842.aspx
Personally I own a pair of 72 vertical Cornwall I's thats have/had the correct period correct drivers/crossovers and from what I have looked up serials as well.
So whats the truth are these people wrong and the Cornwall II were only in production from 1985-1990 or what? Are Series II verts or all verts for that matter using a variation of the serial thats throwing people off?
