what are the best year model(s) cornwalls? in 2-Channel Home Audio Posted 6 hours ago 31 minutes ago, ODS123 said: Well I guess every speaker I've ever owned must of had sufficient adhesive integrity to pass the drop test because not a SINGLE one ever came apart after years and years of ownership. ..And EVERY one was made from MDF. ..Come to think of it, I don't have a single friend who owns an MDF speaker that spontaneously came apart, or suffered water damage for that matter. ..And like me, most have had kept speakers for many many years. My advice to speaker desginers/makers: Use whichever material makes for a better sounding speaker. ..Leave it to the owner to keep the speaker safe from falls or water damage; you know, like the way one treats EVERY appliance in their home. We don't pick our turntables, amplifiers, cd players or flat-screen TV's based on which can best hold up after being dropped, I don't see why we should assess speakers differently. I have repaired a few and threw out others not worth while. Lets not pretend it doesn't happen. My first set of speakers ( Jensen LS something) one of them fell and smashed in the whole corner and busted the seams and that was landing on 3/4" ply flooring with carpet on top.
