    I'm just tryin' to be a friend here for ya.

    You're mighty thoughtful. If you were closer, I would, maybe, take you up on your offer.

     

    These are black. I would love to have these veneered in some natural wood. My first was the CF4 V1 in Cherry. The CF3 was V2 in Walnut. I hope the buyers didn't make the same mistake that I did.

    I have the space if you feel it's crowded there. ;)

    I am out of space. There is a large list of things that need to go, but the CFs are not at the top of said list. 

    I wasn't using the CFs I had before so I sold them, and then had seller's remorse. I am trying again.

    Good morning, do you think it is possible to insert

    Sadly, very few people here are talking about changing anything that is Klipsch. Your question will be better posted on AK. They have a Klipsch Korner page and that's where a lot of the information is.

    Good luck. 

  4. @John Chi-town, I hope you have free drink refills.

    I agree with both sides of this topic, to a point. This isn't the place to promote violence and chit. Understandably, this isn't the place for competitors to advertise their offerings. IMHO, some rule changes went too far. Bob Crites was here and freely sharing information that helped numerous Klipsch supporters. He offered solutions that were not offered by others and, IIRC, never badmouthed Klipsch or the products. Now we can't mention his name or Crites offerings. Rules such as that have strangled this forum to death and it shows. 

    Neither Covid nor a prima-donna behavior by forum members made this place a ghost forum. A little debate is healthy and informative, plus being able to talk about the competition's offerings shows Klipsch's superiority or an area that needs improvement, such as the Mumps in the horns and CW4. 

    just my 2 cents

    Heresy I or II?

    I immediately thought the ‘83s, sounded much better than the ‘80s

    Like you, I have been fortunate enough to have / (had) the I, 1.5 and II. I still have a pair of H1 and the modded 1.5. 
    Here are the 1.5
    Here was the H2

    The better sounding H1.5 and H2 is, IMHO, due to the K701 horn. Using different tweeters and mid-drivers might be a contributing factor.

    I'm a huge fan of Terry Pratchett

    I haven't read all of his Discworld offerings, yet. I did like Dodger and just now finished Moving Pictures.

    I'm only doing this because it's you Mookie.  #1, Mike (Mookie) is a great guy and you should have zero reservations with regards to purchasing anything from him.  #2, I was the original purchaser and the 396's are some kick *** speakers.  Like Mike, I got rid of them to thin out the heard.  Not rich, but speaker rich.  LOL

    +1 on anyone interested can buy with confidence that Mookie is a great guy who can be trusted. 

    If I wasn't out of room, I would buy these.

    Moving the horns to the front of the baffle actually worsens the alignment. The tweeter would need to be farther back to align with the mid horn and it would need to be further back to align with the woofer. The tweeter/mid will be more apparent.

    I totally agree and I did not mean to advocate moving the highs forward.

    I began to wonder about the placement of the tweeter and squawker horns behind that 3/4" plywood front panel.

    That would help the time alignment, but not enough to help to improve the sound. 
    Here is one thread about that change

    To be clear: Placing the highs towards the rear will help, but the placement has to be more than fractions of one inch.

    New ones are mounted on the front for a reason and if you leave them on the back you will probably keep second guessing yourself.

     

    Klipsch Cornwall Time Line

    "The Cornwall II is introduced featuring front mounted drivers to reduce baffle induced diffraction effects."

    They moved the Heresy mounts to the front too.

    IMHO, the largest improvement in sound quality had nothing to do with moving the horns. Replacing the cowbell-sounding metal horns with a plastic (composite) was what helped.

    Damping (not dampening) the K400 will make a difference worth doing. Lots of threads about that.

    Refreshing the crossovers would be the first and most noticeable thing to do, replacing the tweeter with a SMAHL is the larges improvement, but the others cost less.
