  1. I think you'll find that people including so called 'audiophiles' are re-experiencing horns, including the cheaper Klipsch models (600M an example). Many want that 'live experience' and are tired of the 'politeness' offered by most other manufacturers. You can still get that politeness with Klipsch, just don't turn it up so load...and you can spend more money on a better quality lower wattage amp...win/win
  2. Klipsch was and still is more about the emotion of listening to as close to a live performance as possible...with as little distortion as possible. When you go to live concerts can you actual pick out the different instruments/notes played? With Klipsch you need to pay careful attention to the room and if you do you are rewarded by better sound depth imagery without limiting the great side to side imagery.
  3. Agree with pzannucci the mid lets down the Cornwall today and in the past, no tweaking of the network will help that fact.
  4. I also like the K77F but in the vertical position (not where it usually sits) but the DE120 is just a little less brutal on the ears...it's smoother and better than Bob's 125 (I had both). I think the biggest improvement you can make is getting rid of the 400 mid horn and going to a tractrix but that would require some mods to your crossover. Keep the K55 but let it do its job out to 6,000hz. The A55-G could be a great drop-in replacement. With a better mid horn you will get more detail and imagery of what's going on in the recording
  5. Go for it! Audio is like drinking wine - we can all taste different things from the same bottle! 😉
  6. I also have a 3way set up which uses a coil for the Crites woofer at @ -6db 500hz (1st order) then the Cheby for the mid-band and finally a LWR 2nd order for the tweeter @ 8000hz. I have purposely let the Altec 291K (with Le Cleac'h horn) run to its end response as the tweet takes over. I think AL K in his universal lets the K55 run out to about 6k. The tweet is the B & C DE120 that Bob Crites sells with Klipsch wave guide. I have used Bessel, Butterworth and Linkwitz-Riley 1st and 2nd orders but at this point the current set-up is the best for my room and my ears.
  7. here's a site www.mh-audion.nl that should explain to you as well as provide x-over values
  8. BTW I have just put together a 'Cheby' x-over for the box and AMT. I think Cheby's are used by AL K as they are a little steeper than the std 2nd Order class x-over. I do like what I hear, I seem to get more detail in the sweet spot but depending on your room you may need to pare back the woofer or the AMT a few db.
  9. I certainly agree with 'room' interplay unless of course you have some cool electronics that pacifies room anomalies. I am still using old school techniques of room treatments and ears! But if you had a K-33 or Crites woofer can you do any better than current accepted box geometry/porting?
  10. Hi Guys It appears that the Cornwall's internal box size sits at around 6.6 cu ft. I think the original was around 7.25 cu ft. My numbers assume that the panels used are 0.75" thick. So does size matter when deciding on bottom end response? I have seen a number of different sizes being used in developing the Cornscala. Bob Crites gets the 6.6 with his 22.5 x 22.5 x 22.5 internal measurement with nothing being added to the box, including the drivers. What size works best? Does using the 'golden ratio' work out better than a cube? You thoughts would be greatly appreciated. cheers
  11. cheers...I did the Floth method and the bottom end did tighten up and go deeper. It is important to choose a xover network to go with this approach, it's not easy
  12. Bobby Crites has some good specs on volumes, seems as though there is some difference between boxes over the years. Guess it's about what goes inside the box and what does not! Then this will dictate how you can strengthen the box like Roger Floth suggests as do a few others. To match the AMT-1 I think the tighter the sound coming from the box the better the resolution between the two drivers. good luck
  13. looking good,...what internal volume are you using and what ports will you try?
  14. Hi Brian If you are loving them don't change 'em. There are many ideas that people have tried floating about this forum and only requires mods to the xover, just depends on what drivers you have in the box and how detailed, involved, big and luscious you want your sound. good luck
