  1. I own 2 of the Schiit Aegirs super music. More relaxed than I expected. Not the tightest bass but super musical. One of the very best SS amps I’ve heard in a bit. My chain is c2600. 2 Aegirs into my 2way Coenheresy speakers. 94db efficient. Recommend whole heartily
  2. I’m a ALK supporter through and through. That said, you want stock but improved. Crites is the right and answer. The ALk cornscalawal would be the right choice for me but that’s because I dislike the stock voicing and want to be able and adjust my crossover.
  3. Cluad, I dint take offense... Ive learning there's no perfect choice. Building a new allows me to think Ill find it someday. A double woofer would be amazing... might complete with a Cornwall... Much Narrower My cab is 17" wide, 14" deep and 25" tall. If you did a 2nd woodier assuming 14" additional. You'd be at ~39-40" tall... A bit taller than a Cornwall but wholly workable. That said, you'd still end up with a speaker 7" narrower which is significant. What would be the response curve... what's the bass output vs Kappa 15C? Wiring in series vs parallel? Getting ALK to do a version of this would be fun. If all were equal the Eliptrac would be preferred, but it would make it heaver and wider. Using it would allow for 2" drivers instead of 1.4".
  4. For a 2way, finding a horn that goes low well and high is sometimes difficult. At 1200hz on up.... not hard and it was called the econowave. You can use 1" drivers from Dayton and Selenuim. But to go lower than 1200hz ... 1.4" or 2" drivers become needed. I know the JBL 2380 can do it but needs some EQ in the HF. Im not really sure what other horns would do it... Dave's Eliptrac is so special as its a 2" horn that could do 500hz to 18khz without Eq or issues. The next best choice is the Fatial LTH142... its a 1.4" horn. I have loved B&C drivers... the DE85 and the DE750 come to mind for 2way but need a 2" horn. As the Fatial is 1.4" I used the most logical 1.4" I could find :-). This project was expensive... Could have build a cornscala for nearly the same money... Extra plywood was the only real additional cost. This wasn't done as I wanted a smaller speaker to fit my new smaller room. Although the LF12 is 94db which is much lower than a K22. It still makes for a very very efficient speaker which digs lower than any stock Heresy and without the bass hump or porting. That said, lots of paths... many good ones.
  5. Nope. It’s pretty solid. Eliptixla tractrix. 1.4”. 500-to 18k
  6. I like the low slung look but I agreee. The forte as a kit would be fantastic to see. New horns, new divers but same basic design. Was it the forte I that didn’t have the radiator ? I think the forte with the radiator and the chorus are the great equalizers for cabinet size.
  7. As an aside. Risers are from Bob and he makes a fantastic bracket to support the driver. Maybe we will decide to make a mini might and have accessible for all. With the same horn he uses for the big cornscala. Prob need to be priced similar to cornscala kit but for some it’s not the price but the physical size. I orig built these for the wife/tv room. She hates the riser and as such STOLE my smalll cornsclalaa from me. In hind sight the size of the cornheresy is a better fit for my small listening room.
  8. It digs about as deep as a stock CWI. 44-46hz Dave Harris cur the baffle for me. Bob has something similar but does use the big horn. The big horn really adds to the cost but it was about fitting the biggest horn I could shove into a heresy cab. Bob crosses his at 1200hz which was like the old econowaves. This could have been done at 500hz like bob does on his cornsclala but I was just being safe. Maybe the next version should be at 500hz. Mini cornscala. I think it’s 2” wider than stock but completely worth it. If you guys need I’ll grab dimensions for you. I love that there are no screws expect to hold the crossover down. All drivers and panels bolt in.
  9. It’s an 8ohm. Pretty much a drop in for a K22/K24. Digs much deeper
  10. Love the size of the Heresy, and my wife wanted my small Cornscalas smaller. I give you the CornHeresy. The design goal was for the same midrange horn, driver and crossover I use in my cornscala but smaller. It doesn't dig as deeply as my cornscala, not by a long shot but the bass is still fantastic. The sound stage is wide and Deep. 2way Eminence LFA12 Faital LTH142 (The big one) for the horn. Faital HF140 for 500-18K. I know some cross it as low as 500hz... Driver has been shown to be safe that low. The horn reports its freq response from 500hz to 18K, but suggests crossing at 800hz with a 12db filter. This is prob meant at full power, but I decided to use the recommendation and went with a 12DB. I asked AL to design a AP12-800 setup for this application. He had previously measured a 12LFA went I sent it to his for the Jub Clone crossovers. I believe Al describes it as a AP12 + a Zoble network.
  11. Couldn’t do it quite now. Still available. Josh is super standup. Amp is a sold choice. Esp for though wanting a better ACA.
  12. Hi everybody! Thanks for the super kind words. The sale of some of my speakers recently and the sale of the Hudsons is born of 2 life changes. 1 I have a new house... different setups and trying to build for my current needs. I lost my 3 car garage which was boat, Wife's ride and storage. Now we have boat and storage... Id like to get my wife back to parking in the garage as its her desire. If you guys have been watching some in the last few months, you'll see I love the cornscala concept... esp with Fastlane horns and ALK crossovers. The rest is just trial and error to make them nicer and even more stoutly made. One of the forum members got my JWC bins with Elpitrac mid and contracts tweeter... thats going to be a monster when done... few weeks later he called for a spare crossover... He ended up with a Triangle port baffles, horns and crossovers... I ended up paying for the development cost of my new monoblock amps... win win. 2nd major issues thats wonderful news, is that I was able to come to agreement with my partner and purchased his interest back in my company. I love to build speakers but intend to only do so on spec. The Demo units which went out for review and were used in shows are available. The Hudsons are remarkable in that they are the very best cornscala I could build.... great drivers, amazing custom crossover from ALK, solid build work with finish work to die for.... the Finish was perhaps the greatest challenge of the speaker as its a epoxy and then polished. Anyway, hope this helps clear the air. Lets all call it a fancy cornscala... Long live Klipsch and American HiFI! With that said... I vote the CWIV gets the 510 horn.
