  1. I would need the EXACT specs of the original cabinets. Are those even available?
  2. Here is a pic of my cornwalls in there "downsized cabs"
  3. I have a pair of re-sized Cornwalls. They were resized due to fire damage - built by a local carpenter. I bought them this way. I'd like to get them back tot he orig size/spec. -bob

  5. Hello Gentlemen, I am seeking a pair of EMPTY Klipsch Cornwall Cabinets. Please contact me a 65AmpsLondon2 [AT] GMAIL DOT com. Thanks, bob
  6. Anyone here in this forum an expert in Tube preamps and turntables? I have this vintage piece of gear that is a tube pre-amp-digital processor that I was thinking of adding in my signal chain of my vintage Pioneer PL-51 turntable. THe link to the gear is here:http://artproaudio.com/discontinued_products/classic_discontinued_products/product/sgx_series/ It was originally designed as a guitar tube pre-amp/digital processor. It had 12ax7 tube in it. But I started thinking it could work?
  7. Hi all, I have my CW IIs apart and was wondering if I should replace the original speaker wire that runs between the crossover to the components (woofer, squaker, Mid horn). Will I hear the difference?
  8. Pete, Did you ever finish the CAP replacement? I have the exact same crossovers and was wondering what CAPS you used and if it upgraded the sound? Thanks, bob
  9. Quick question, I own a Klipsch Academy for my center speaker. Do folks upgrade the cap in this speaker? If so, what do they use?
  10. Craig, Sorry but I'm very confused with all this technical talk. It's over my head. I give up. Thank you all for your input, but I can't use it if I don't understand how to implement it. I don't know how to tune a speaker. Or know what a high-pass band filter is. To me, this looks like an algebra problem where I need to solve for "Q": "and adding a +6db EQ centered at 36Hz with a Q1.8. " Q=1.8=5dB (max) Q=1.414=3dB Q=2=6dB Not sure if anyone here can actually translate all this tech talk down to stuff like "buy this here with this link" and "click here for install instructions." I can solder. I can follow instructions. I'm just not up for Linear Algebra if you know what I mean...
  11. RE: acoustic panels? Do you have an example of what you mean by acoustic panel? Where do you find these? Is it the same as just finding non-backed fiberglass strip and wrap it in fabric and staple it to the inside of the speaker?
  12. Is the Bob Crites x-over kit $58 per Speaker or is it $116 to do both?
  13. Hey guys, Can you please translate that into Luddite English for me. I have no idea what you are talking about. Here's what I do know: I need the following replaced. (2) 1.5uf 250v (1) 3.0uf 250v (1) 68uf 100v The above is per speaker. Please advise.
  14. sounds interesting. How do you do it and what parts do i buy, cost?
  15. yep, he did. Plus, their website is so damn hard to find anything. What about Solen?
  16. The Caps are original as far as I can tell. So around 30 years old?. I think I'm OK with Dayton. I like the price points. Read many good reviews. Here are my low cost selections: 68uf = http://www.parts-express.com/68uf-100v-electrolytic-non-polarized-crossover-capacitor--027-356 1.5uf = http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-pmpc-15-15uf-250v-precision-audio-capacitor--027-212 3.0uf - http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-pmpc-30-30uf-250v-precision-audio-capacitor--027-220
  17. Anyone have any opinions on replacement options for the 68uf CAP on a CW2 crossover? I found this one on Parts Express: 68uF 100V Electrolytic Non-Polarized Crossover Capacitor ----- http://www.parts-express.com/68uf-100v-electrolytic-non-polarized-crossover-capacitor--027-356 Just curious if this CAP is any better than what I have stock in my CW2 crossover? I'd like to uncover 3 options for this replacement, Low cost, mid-price and highest quality.
  18. Yes, talked to Bob as well as the tech guru guy (Jeff G.) at Sonicaps Getting different conflicting info about Titanium Diaphrams and replacing Caps. Jeff says you wont notice a difference if you are using a Solid State amp like I am (not tube amp). Also, said you had to modify x-over with pass filter if you put diaphram in etc... All the cost and expense may not be worth it based on driving speaker with solid state amp. Differing opinions?

  20. "Need? That is a premature statement in my humble opinion." ....lol.. Well...for those of us stumbling aimless in the audiophile DYI landscape....fattening up the bass with some thick Monster Cable is about the best guys like me can do... pic of my actual crossover: https://www.flickr.com/photos/58668520@N00/14815857053/in/photostream/ Schematic of CW 2 xover: https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=97469
  21. Quick crossover question... I need to upgrade the speaker wire used in the crossovers. I was thinking high gauge/strand count copper braided wire. Does anyone have any tips where I can find where to buy the supplies needed to to this?
  22. Thanks Mustang Guy! Just a quick question. Obviously you did the calculations based upon installing (2) ports per speaker? Do I have a (1) port per speaker installation option? Also, what is the difference between Flanged ports vs. straight ports. Do they have individual characteristics? -b
