  2. Not sure that I understand your concern here a CW2 and a CW3 have the same bass section same driver there will be not real difference in bass other than that the CW3 mid cannot be played as low as the larger K601 mid horn of the CW2 (the lower crossover is a big bonus). The ti diaphragms have break up modes which are objectionable to some and the phenolic do not share the same sonic profile so some people would say the phenolic sound smoother to them You already know what the phenolic sound like the diaphragms in your Heresy are phenolic and you said that you loved them. you cannot exchange horns they are different sizes the K601 is physically larger than a K701 is. Best regards Moray James. PS: I don't want others to take offense here but doing a hack job on a pair of near to new CW3 is not a plan and will destroy the resale value totally. The plan here should be to establish if what the op is really after is phenolic diaphragms or not and if he is then a pair of good condition CW2 would be the logical way to go and simply sell the CW3. He gets diaphragms that he likes the sound of and a better larger lower crossover point mid horn while maintaining the bass he loves. I cannot over state the fact that some people really hate the sound of ti diaphragms, they are particularly sensitive to the frequency range in which the titanium diaphragm break up. I happen to be fine with then in fact I prefer them to phenolic but this is really a situation of different strokes for different folks. I agree with Moray - any modification should not be a hack job - if not done properly - dont do it unless you have the right skills
  3. the OP has 4 choices -and I would rate them in this order ; 1) Buy Belles or Scalas in order to have a speaker that delivers on the midrange - Scalas are better than Belles -as the mid horn is 400htz versus 450htz for the Belle - 2) change diaphragms on the CW3 to phenolic - I doubt that will really make a difference if not be a downgrade - 3) replace the horn with a K601 brand new horn as the CW3 is in a new condition - the work should be done properly by a competent wood worker to avoid having the unit look like a hack job -bear in mind that the changes are permanent - 4) avoid touching or modifying the CW3 -

  16. shark patrol - moderator - isnt that a dichotomy
  17. great news - nick offerman is a moderator -
  18. yeah - after seeing the right pictures - a bigger hole is needed -but that is very easy to do with a router - you remove the k701 - then place the k601 with front face on the motorboard - line up with the tweeter - take a color pencil and trace the outline - -with a router - cut out the midrange opening , the openings have to be recessed as well so the horn is flush with the motorboard -1/2 hour per cabinet - and the look would be seamless -
  19. I agree with you 100% as well - thanks for the pictures - that k601 is bigger but it would fit with the modification of the cut out of the mid horn - the k601 is a very nice horn in comparison with the k701 - what a difference it must do in the sound of a CW3 -
  20. yea - you are 100% right - but the modification is a very easy one to do - thanks for the info - I have the k400-the k600-the k701 - but I am missing the k601 - the k69 from the forte 2 and the chorus 2 is great but in the CW3 would definitely not fit - by the way - what is the htz rating of the k69 horn lense or does that not matter as it is a tractrix horn -
  21. -the phenolic diaphragms are the second option -as Morey mentionned - he k601 is the only horn that fits on the K701 titanium drivers -4 screws in the back - just like the k701 - - you would have to get the proper measurements to compare - but the mod is very simple and cheap as well as these are 30$ - 50$ horns only - -dont touch the crossover - it is fine - as the only difference here is 100htz - you will however hear a more pleasant midrange sound , and not as harsh as the k701 as the k701 was meant for a smaller speaker - rather than the 1 foot wider Cornwall cab -
