    Cornwall Veneer.

    Here are some better pictures of the fronts and the label. One thing I noticed is that it looks like there was a label placed on the speakers then another one was added on top. https://photos.app.goo.gl/8ETjdkcbH1NZuwOD2 Thanks for looking, Ron

    Well I bought them from the guy that purchased them new and he sure as hell didn't do anything to them. Are you sure? 30X363 is one of the serial numbers. 1982?

    It seems that all the Cornwall's I see are not finished behind the grill, when did Klipsch start/stop this. Mine are lacquered oak and they are veneered on the sound board. Just wondering....

    KP-250 questions

    I picked up a pair of KP-250's the other day and I too want to see what can be done to make them more like Hersey's. I got them to use in the garage so the box is perfect for that application, closing up the ports would be easy enough but is there anything else inside I should change? Can the crossover be modified or should I just replace it, if so, which would be the best choice?

    image hosting 10mb limit I thought these were walnut but after cleaning ten years of dirt off them I'm not so sure, can anyone weigh in?

    Speaker Dilemma

    Grettings all, I have two pair of K-horns and I need to decided which pair to part with. I have the first pair I purchased in the 80's that matched my Cornwalls, white oak lacquer, so I have a matching set, although the Cornwalls haven't viberated in ten years I have hopes of someday having them all in the same room. The other pair of K-horns are oiled walnut with serial numbers 2C006 and 2C009. Is there anything special about these or just a run of the mill K-horns from the 60's. Both sets of K-horns are in nice shape with the plus going to the walnuts, the oak pair have some problems with the tops but are perfect everywhere else.. I'm leaning towards keeping the four white oak set and moving the walnut pair, convince me otherwise or not. Just to throw something else into the mix I believe the walnut horns are from my birth year,1964. Thank you in advance, Ron

    What part confused you?

    Mac C2200

    Oh my God, I can't begin to explain the difference. After much trial and error , I finally got things up and running. I guess my problem was that the only set-up I've had for 20 years has been what's in my sig. A mac 2120, c26 and a mr71. Anyway, the C26 has you connect the amp to the pre and then you connect the speaker wires to the pre. I sat there and looked at the c2200 and looked at those new xlr connections and just scratched my head. Bad news was the Mc75's didn't work out. after going though the power up process with the viriac only one seemed to respond and then wheneven you touched anything on it, it crackled. The garbage man happened to be around and he offered me $20.00 bucks for the pair, seemed like a good price based on the weight. So anyway, the C2200 is hooked up to the Mc 2120 and it sounds so wonderful I really can't believe it. I thought the amp was a weak link in my system, so wrong. It was totally the pre. Before I trash my c26 to death we need to put things into perspective. For the price difference, it is hard to berate the c26. After 20 years or so of listening I can't complain, if I was to recommend a starter pre, the c26 would be the fist on my list. But what the hell do I know. So in conclusion, I think the C2200 is just amazing, I have little experience so take my impression with a grain of salt. Well now I need to figure out what to do with the Mc 75's . From a little reading I did some say the tube amp makes the big difference so I wonder if I get the 75's fixed will I see the same change? Any advice on getting them fixed? and will I need to power them up for hours on the "V" if I don't turn them on for a few months? Now, I have 4 k-horns and 2 MR 71's, is there any difference in the MR 71's anything to look for? Ok, back to listening, let me know what I should do with the 75's Thank you guys, Ron

    Ok thanks, I was using a c26 which had a place for the speakers and the amp was connected to the pre. Music is playing

    I guess I'm having brain fade but I can't seem to figure out how to hook up a C2200. Where do you put the amp output wires? Thank you

    Powering Up Mc 75's

    Hello all, I just got a pair of MC75's that were overhauled about 5 years ago. They have been sitting for 3 years now and I was wondering if I need to do the variac thing or not before using them. If so, I'll use the light bulbs. Does anyone know what watt bulb to start with and how long do you have to power the amp with each different bulb? Thanks, Ron
  13. I was working on one of my K-horns the other day, it has a blown tweeter, and I was looking at all the wiring that connects the tweeter and mid range and I got to thinking. People talk about monster cable the size of a pencil, pure silver wire, maybe even gold wire but I look at the fuse that all these wires run to and from and I wonder what is the need for all this huge wire when the wire inside the fuse is about the size of a human hair? Because the fuse is only an inch long that tiny strand of wire is fine or would it be better to ditch the fuse?

    What would you do?

    He's got a pair of Mac 75's to drive them, but with tube amps would you ever get near 35w? This whole tube watt thing confuses me, I hear some say I have a 6w amp and never turn it up and others want the scott mk something because it has more balls?
