  1. The best choices I believe would be the chorus. Personally I never could listen to a two way for long periods of time. I have quartets, the smallest in the line and it does a very good job with raggae at moderate to high volume. With the higher effencency of chorus , aught to get you there. Cornwall with a sub would be a different.
  2. Op , Seems to me that you've done what most would have suggested, that is to Take the time to listen to your system. Placement is critical, not only speaker but seating. Sacrilege!!wire not saying to go out and buy expensive wire .you're at the point where the searching will involve small, incremental changes affecting the whole, you're at the place where its in the mid range. The suggestion by moray shouldn't be ignored. I've tried it on a pair of quartet. It helped with the placement of spkr. Hope you'll have good success.
  3. Good you got the opportunity to hear the Cornwall, was it the fact that there was a lack of bass that left you flat and disappointment. Enjoy the experience and the music from your system.
  4. Yeah, make sure the pilot light is on.
  5. Happy father's day, I'm flabbergasted to see that everyone turn off their amp.how many remove the plug from outlets, or go so far as to turn off circuit breaker. The reasoning behind the act elude me .in cases where lightening could be a factors I'm totally infavor of turning off,and unplugging equipment from source.
  6. For the most part I have left my solid state amp on for the better part of years no issues. Always ready to go, I do turn off my pre amp no problem there neither. Choose your poison.
  7. Pleased you've found some thing that is interphasing well with your system.time to test,and see what else is possible, great write up.
  8. Since the Cornwall are the reference speaker that the others are compared to, then yes.thou it's not perfect, for what it does it's pretty hard to surpass,disappears and images quite well.can be brought in to a room ,although it's large it's not as boxy as the LaSalle, raised off the floor it can ataint the height of the klipschorn and witk good equiptment is impressive.and pulls you in .truly an amazing and simple speaker,when you really live wilh a pair of cornwalls,there's no need to wonder you known. 😚
  9. Low power high resistance tube amp nk tube amp
  10. In-correct pressure distribution.
  11. Amazing thread. Most people seem to believe that speaker should sound better than f. What do you expect to hear, what are you hearing, the speaker should give you an insight into what it offers. Can you work with work within it's basic sound and prepare to enhance its sound. Or will you return to your first love. To get the best results put A away go see how F. Really sound, to truly give the new speaker a fair shot obviously your gear should have qualities you like. Let it play days on end.listen. switching out gear and crossover parts won't really help with your assessment. You sound confused. No wonder your speaker sound the same.
  12. It will take some playing around to get things where you're satisfied. Not sure with avr in mix, though pretty confident all will be well.in my case zone two going through outlaw 950 pre-pro powered form 125x5 acurus.allows me to have all format as needed in second location, though using mainly two channel. Not stereo as I prefer plim+cr through Cornwall, and sub when needed. Patience, you'll get there.
  13. Might be having issues with power caps in receiver
  14. My thoughts are the 11 were recess slightly vale. It would have been nice to hear what the Dean network sounded like. I do understand and respected your decision .What was the determinate factor was in how the spkr was set up,location wise Would you say with a less neutral amp the top end on the seven would bring it closer to the 111.looking to future updates . Thks
  15. Does thI'm I e last penny make the biggest impact to becoming a dollar.
  16. Haven't heard crites upgrade ,when I purchased my quartets back in 90 also heard forte and chorus .even now when I listen between Cornwall and quartets. It's a close call for me. Prefer Cornwall mid. Quartets have a lot of presence .No upgraded .
  17. Surly, as with any electrical circuitthe effects of change in the circuit Will affect it. Is this a positive or perceive improvement. It's been said it's just different. This difference is obviously what op experienced. As an affordable improvement to his listening experience is a good thing. Did the change add something to his room.these are also conditions that needs to be consider. Please don't get me wrong the same way capacitors alter the sound, cables can and do make a difference. As do better amplification, and many compliant within the environment we listen in.
  18. Op It might cost you a bit more, though well worth the cost to invest in some v-caps oil impregnated metallized polypropylene caps. .
  19. Disk don't know if I can purchase as individual ,need 1-De 10 I think 1-k55v with horn for project, if you are willing to, let me know, I'll provide contact #.I'm not good at pm.
  20. K77 aren't blown, but that's most likely where your problem lies .
  21. Has anyone ever experienced this condition, playing quartets in living room sitting in adjoining florida room With sliding door open, system in Florida room turn off, subwoofer is in auto in Florida rm. Just noticed the active light is on. Could bass from quartets activate the sub .?
  22. becoming the owner of a 30 year old vintage speaker ,that I imagine is in good condition even if you paid a great price to put a reletively small investment in them is more than worthwhile. The ear needs to be massage, No second guessing as to how much better they might sound, there no need to do it twice which cost more in the end, that anology of the car is good thou I think most people buying a used car would like to detail it, to at least see it looking it's best just make you feel better.
  23. Your voltage drop would be my main concern since the conductor is able to carry more amps than the breaker, Just for peace of mind you could run #10/2. This would then be a over kill, for re-use in garage rewire tho doable. Use the 10/2 as a 120v ck, from source and using 2 inline 15 or20 amp fuses, from hot tie to two receptacles to feed eqpt. Pigtail neutral to outlets.also ground, #10 may be control by 25/30 amp breaker. That's what I'd do
