  1. definitely , the Cornwall IV has the same midrange driver as the Heresy IV + the advantage of a much larger midrange horn , here's a video showing the CW IV going head to head with the JBL 4367 Studio monitors worth 3 x the price
  2. the Cornwall III is pretty close to a Heresy III as both speakers share the same HF drivers and horns , but the Heresy IV has a superior and much larger Midrange driver , meaning the Heresy IV will be superior in terms of vocals versus a Cornwall 3 .
  3. the fact that the AL-5 is heavy does not preclude that the testing and measurement methods are not to be compromised , the Author should have used a stand as a strict minimum , or the results are flawed " couldn't lift the La Scala off the floor onto a stand " now that's just too bad , either you do it right or your published results are inaccurate and worthless , because had the Author used a stand , the results would have been very different .
  4. the Stereophile review is full of errors https://www.stereophile.com/content/klipsch-la-scala-al5-loudspeaker-measurements and I quote " I found three fairly strong resonant modes on the sides of the bass bin (fig.2). The highest was at 125Hz. Usually when I measure a loudspeaker's farfield behavior, I raise it as far as possible off the ground. Fig.5 Klipsch La Scala, Note that I didn't connect the woofer for this measurement, as its output was corrupted by the reflections from the floor " , Stereophile were taking critical measurements of the Lascala in a not-so-perfect environment for such measurements, all the tests and measurements are therefore flawed , the Lascala cabinet should have been stabilized firmly to the surface of the floor before any measurements could be done , otherwise the results are simply not accurate or representative of the speaker's true resonance results .

    Eagles Jalen Hurts signs a 5-year contract worth $255 million 49 ers Brock Purdy signs a 4 year, $3,737,008 extension , now that's a bad contract
  6. your 9 channel amplifier is only 100 wpc , I would seek at minimum a 200 wpc , 9 channel amp , the 2x more powerful amp will add 3dB but most important , it will give you headroom for lower distortion levels
  7. discussions about Aftermarket horns are no longer allowed on the klipsch Forum
  8. the LS II and AL-5 bass bins have 0 resonance , I would defy anyone on the Klipsch Forum to prove the contrary with real data , all this crap about Lascala resonance is pure BS from the Korner Audiokarma gang who's sole purpose is to denigrate klipsch Products .
  9. the Mark Levinson 5805 is a great quality amp for the klipsch CW IV speakers , I think you'll do very well with this combo
  10. you can verify whether the woofer screws in your speakers are screwed tight .....remove the lower woofer access panel , and check the K-33 screws 1 by 1 , woofer screws that are slightly loose can cause a vibration or resonance when playing music , I'm not saying it is the problem , but it's worth checking .
  11. if you ever want more out of your speakers , you can upgrade your Forte III to the Forte IV , by purchasing a kit from klipsch https://support.klipsch.com/hc/en-us/articles/10919293829780-Forte-IV-upgrade-kit-instructions-
  12. Crown-BGW amps suit the MCM-1900 very well
  13. klipsch are coming out with new Horn loaded vented subs ( powered + DSP ) by next summer for the Khorn
  14. the thread is about a tweeter , it's not about twitter
  15. not so fast , one installs braces to tame resonance in the LS bass bin , but , in reality the braces reduce the bass output of the LS bass bin
  16. total BS there were no serious issues with resonance from the LS cabs , resonance was a tad noticeable with the 200W Lascala Industrial speakers when they were pushed hard and klipsch resolved the issue by beefing up the LSI cabs in the early 80's , I own the LSI . more BS there was no problems either with the 1/2 inch Heresy 1 or Cornwall 1 rear panels or there would have been thousands of threads on the subject over the years , I also own the Heresy- Cornwall with 0 problems .

    Cowboys 3...Bills 31 who wouda thunk ?
  18. in an LS bass bin , thicker panels must be all around including the panels of the dog house in order to tame the resonance from the top+ bottom + the sides +the dog house , 2 horizontal braces cant replace all these panels without causing unwanted reflections .
