  1. oh...it obviously dropped the crossover to around 513hz, both revisions appear to have used a Cheyby 2nd order instead of Butterworth
  2. Hi I thought Al revised this network for the woofer value of 5 ohm not 4 ohm (mH: 2.4 instead of 1.3 and uF: 30+1 instead of 39+1 with 62 instead of 39) and respective change for the mid was placing a 10 ohm resistor across the autoformer instead of 5.6 ohm and a coil 2.0 mH instead of 1.3mH
  3. When I look at pictures of the NEW Jubilee is reminds of this mod done some years ago! Interesting to say the least!
  4. maybe they had some spares lying about to make it fit the need
  5. When I look at this network again it really is an interesting piece of work. Looks like they use LWR 2nd order to cross the woofer at around 320hz and at the top end a 2nd order Cheyby at around 6400hz. Not sure about the mid...got me stumped!!
  6. The B3 has been given a 'facelift' by a few...in the tweeter circuit from memory found somewhere in the forum B3 network.docx
  7. ...I do agree with the cost aspect, to me that is the driver in using simple and cheap resistors instead of autoformers!
  8. I agree with Curious George...I have designed L-Pads and used autoformers and compared...the resistors in an L-pad destroy the 'cleanliness' that the autoformer provides! If you wish to change the values to even out various speaker resistances (more precise matching of drivers) just use a good resistor to 'swamp' the autoformer.
  9. Humble Homemade Hifi - Capacitor Test
  10. I was corresponding with Bob Crites some years ago on damping and sticking in bits of wood to strengthen the CW cabinet and ultimately his Cornscala. His research suggested there was not much of a difference electrically, graphically and using one's ears. I did my own testing when I built my Cornscala (two boxes/sizes) and the difference was negligible. Significant difference however comes with playing with the network!
  11. The ADI-2...and I also use as a preamp...great DAC
  12. I sometimes use DSP through my RME DAC but I find it a compromise over a passive network- maybe I am just old fashioned...'old' is a given!
  13. Be interesting to test side by side for a test with ones' ears!. Apparently Klipsch did test the method many years ago and said the difference is negligible so they kept their design. Now I think the CW4 ports look like it may increase the resistance closer to Floth's method which to me results in a deeper and tighter bass help transients improve their 'hit' in the listening room. I also used a Bessel network to further enhance this. The network in the CW4 will be important in working with the new port design. Cheers
  14. There was a guy in the 80's - Roger Floth who wrote an article on 'Equalizing the Klipsch Cornwall'. You may find this interesting. I have built a box based on his design and am delighted with the results - deeper, clearer, faster and less bloated bass Equalizing the Klipsch Cornwall.pdfresponse
