  1. The Cornwall II grills will not line up properly with the Cornwall 1 HF/MF driver layout.
  2. All oil finishes will need reoiling at some point. Nice but not $4K nice maybe half that.
  3. It's because the one woofer is using the other one as sort of a passive radiator and generates some additional bass. Perhaps the capacitors in the networks need replacing.
  4. I ran two DBX BX-1's at one point one in 4-channel mode and the other in 3-channel mode. Fabulous amps that can essentially be run into a dead short. No the BGW amp is not the same not even close. I have service manuals and schematics for it but good luck finding someone to service it or find parts. The remnants of the DBC company that moved to CA with Gene Raymond the Lead Engineer was sold off to The Sound Room in Berkely. CA then they turned around and sold what was left to Musician's Service Center. That was a number of years ago though. Perhaps the only reason that I sold them and purchased a Sherbourn 7/2100A 7 Channel True Mono Block amp to replace the duo. Good luck in your quest.
  5. Thanks I sent the link to my Brother in Law in Texas.
  6. Yeah but you will need S/N's from the speakers that will possess them Klipsch won't sell them outright because of the DIY'ers. Good luck.
  7. I just replaced mine with a pair of a/d/s L200E's. Huge upgrade in performance. Plug and play. Nice pairs at a decent price can be found on eBay. These are some of the best mini speakers that you can get.
  8. Junk and junk. Plate amplifiers will fail it is just a matter of time.
  9. About $1800 overpriced. Nice looking speakers though just too much.
  10. All your doing with the cabinet below the Belle is turning into a bass reflex speaker which defeats the purpose of horn loading. Better to just add a competent sub and leave the Belle engineering alone.
  11. Yeah a Belle Klipsch works well. Here is mine before I inverted it for better response. Belle Klipsch for rears and Heresy as side surrounds.
  12. My brother in law just performed the complete Volti upgrade on his Klipschorn's (WOW) and has the entire driver complement, network, K-401K horns and motorboard he is willing to sell. So two K-77M's, K-55M's, K-401K's front motorboard assembly with grill (no badges), AK-3 networks complete with woofer circuit, Klipsch K-33 woofers all in perfect working order. Essentially a Klipschorn sans the cabinet. He is not willing to part it out at this time as the leads from the network are still soldered to the MF/HF drivers. He is in Laredo, TX It will be tricky to ship obviously so pick up is highly encouraged.
  13. They would command more if they had a real finish like Walnut, Oak, etc. Good luck getting $1200 they just are not worth that. eBay pricing is not realistic.
  14. $1200 for butt jointed raw birch Cornwalls in less than desireable condition not a chance. $600 maybe.
  15. Before you start blaming the speakers I would make sure your amplifier isn't the culprit. If it is happening on both speakers my bet is the amplifier is having issues. Try a different pair of speakers and see if the crackling issue remains first before hacking into the Heresy's.
  16. I picked mine up years ago for $400 to play with my other two HGS-15's supporting a trio of La Scala's. The servo in these units ensure extremely low clean distortion free bass as it monitors cone movement thousands of time a second. Yes they are old but even the new Klipsch subs can't dig as deep regardless of what the specifications indicate. I owned one Klipsch subwoofer a KSW-15 that I bought new and it was a POS. Boxed in back up and sold it. The only worthwhile subs Klipsch has ever produced are the RSW line and the THX Ultra's. The rest are mediocre at best and the self destructing plate amp issues have plagued Klipsch for years. However, the eBay asking price is well beyond optimistic maybe $500 to $800 tops if it is in perfect working order. If the servo circuit goes in these getting it repaired will be difficult as the woofer and amp need to be sent together in order to calibrate the servo properly if you can find someone to repair it as Velodyne no longer services these.
  17. Woofer could have been a number of different K-33 versions Stephens, EV, Jensen, CTS. Crossover would have been Type A or the earlier 500-5000.
  18. News to us Big Chief Rog but good news to those needing one. Does Klipsch parts stock them if so how about a part number for our thread author.
  19. The Cornwall II uses the K-34 Woofer not the K-33 the cardboard trim ring is shorter and finished since it mounts flush to the cabinet.
  20. Not for a K-34 woofer that the Cornwall II uses which is not manufactured anymore wise guy.
  21. $3K is Klipschorn territory and I would never pay that much for a fancy cabinet. I have owned two pairs of Belles never paid anywhere near that.
  22. No the KV-4 is timbre' matched to the Epic Series CF-1, CF-2, CF-3, CF-4. The centers for the KG line are KG 2.2 and KG 2.5.
  23. Wrong decade those are from the early 80's like 1982. At least they are not severely over priced.
  24. This setup has no synergy so it really doesn't matter. Nothing matches with all the different series of speakers your timbre will be all over the place until you get all similar speakers. Sell and start over with timbre matched speakers it will be well worth it and will make a tremendous difference.
  25. My Teac R-999X with six motors is my favorite I also have the R-888X. Other favorite is the Nakamichi RX-505.
