  1. Maybe it is time for you to take a class on how to apply your own wood veneer. For example there are free classes around here at a store called Woodcraft. Then purchase the sub you want with the specs that suit your needs that is within your budget. Then go nuts on the veneer. Finally, sent us the pics.
  2. Back up for sale. The other speaker in the photo is a Chorus II. Not part of this sale, but would listen to an offer for the single. The mate for it is my center channel.
  3. A few crossover pics to show more of how the design engineers were thinking at the time. Conversion is 3.466KG = 7.627LB
  4. NEW LAMP STANDS FOR THE THEATER! #118 and #119 first production run Now I have 2 pairs front and rear. Not bad for a surround channel. These will obviously not work underneath my screen in center position, so I will not be adding any more of them in my room. I have the slightly smaller model to run the center and rear positions. The sibling bookshelves are chained to the ceiling. I wish I could pull these 3 feet out into the room and allow them to breath. That is why I have so much acoustic treatment. Allows for corner placement without the bad side effects. Open invite to anyone who wants to listen. I would put them up against ANYTHING you have under $5K. These really are 30HZ-27KHZ and do all those frequencies extremely balanced and neutral. I have a 150W X 6 Classé which is bridgable to 300W X 3, but I could do even better with a 300 watt Krell!
  5. I know what you mean. I am trying to find a 30 year old teak JBL B460 right now for my other system. Subs are always like..."hey I am just a huge ugly monolithic black cube trying to hide in a shadow. Don't put any wood veneer on me, your wife might be able to see me." I am not completly sure where the "Heritage" emblem gets hung on that product though.
  6. According to the poll numbers 33 pairs of Cornwall IV's should have already been accounted for. Not bad considering they have not even released yet. Chief, did you get a chance to vote? Oh, that's right, I guess you already did when you chose to design the CW IV. Thank you for going all of your hard work. They look so good. I am happy to see the activity within this thread was able to get your attention. Hope all of this helps the cause. I was confident that a "NEW" product would eventually hit the showroom floor. I just never expected one so soon.
  7. Regardless of audible differences and prices, at least they are not Klipsch Pro Audio right? Therefore they come in beautiful wood cabinets handcrafted with awesome skilled labor right here in the U.S.A. They will at a minimum look amazing in a home.

  9. I agree with all of your recent comments above. In my defense I am not a research specialist. I am a Klipsch enthusiast. My intent of the poll all along has always been to generate interest in a "new" product and find where most others here place their preferences regardless of price. The poll was started long before any public information about any "new" product rumors or announcements. Hindsight. Good job by Klipsch keeping the wrap on this though. I am willing to edit, or mute if it helps the cause. Just seemed like a good thread for me to post what comes up on google search. Well, now that there is something to actually search that is. I was busy eating popcorn during that epic event. I thought it important to note here that in my opinion, being a carpenter and all, I happen to really enjoy things made out of wood. I get a lot of enjoyment out of the consumer (home) versions of Klipsch speakers vs their pro counter parts. Those beautiful cabinets keep me on the hook. I live among my speakers.
  10. Unofficially All unofficial specs as per https://www.digitalcinema.com.au/klipsch-cornwall-iv-heritage-speakers-pair.html Brand Klipsch Frequency Response 34 Hz - 20 kHz Power 400 Watts Woofer Bass Driver Size (mm) 581 mm Midrange Size mm 44.5 mm Tweeter 25 mm Impedance (Ω) 8 Ω Sensitivity 102 dB Item Sold As Pair Klipsch Series Heritage Subwoofer Size 15 Inch Crossover Frequency HF: 5 kHz | MF: 800 Hz Warranty Australian Manufacturers Warranty Product Dimension (H×W×D) 907.1 x 642.9 x 392.9 mm (ea) Product Weight 44.5 Kg (ea)
  11. $3K each...already exceeds the total of what I payed for 6 pre-owned Chorus II's. Apples to oranges, I know. Oh well, knew they would not come cheap. I really do hope they are 6X better. Not that I have faith in that. Just that it would really be something. Holding out for more info and reviews on the new midrange. That was the one thing that to me was in dire need of an update. My local Certified Klipsch Heritage Dealer was one of the first in the country to have set up in the showroom the AK6 Klipschorn. (The La Scala AL5 were my favs.) I may just get a chance to listen soon after Rocky Mountain.
  12. Still unofficial although they state they are a Certified Klipsch Heritage Dealer https://jemperformanceaudio.com/klipsch-heritage-speakers
  13. I don't understand. Tell me if I am wrong here. So you don't have them set up where you can listen to them, and don't know how they sound, but you want to modify them? Why?
  14. Which Home Theater? I have not posted in this thread before, so I though why not now. The dedicated theater room is currently getting a back wall makeover so here is a pic taken showing the recent front wall makeover. I run JBL in there The Klipsch room is a non-dedicated all purpose space. Ready for anything.

    .

    Let's see what you got!
  16. I actually ended up selling them anyway. Either way they are gone and no longer available. Thanks.
  17. I was reading on an authorized Klipsch retailers homepage something about a new speaker coming soon to replace the cornwall III. I can't find the page, so no link to share. Just more rumors
  18. Today I got all the wood I needed for my next project. A custom made audio equipment rack. This one will go in the JBL theater room. It will not be like the last 2 racks I made that are sandwiched between Klipsch Chorus II's. I am planning for something a bit more toward the high end furniture look with this build. 60" height 25" width 20"depth with casters. 7 shelves plus the top.
  19. Thank goodness I am too far away to buy from you. That is quite a load of Klipsch you got there. I like how they are all matching. I am sure someone here could make them sparkle like new after giving them some love and hard work.
  20. https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/denavrx4400h/denon-avr-x4400h-9.2-ch-x-125-watts-a/v-receiver-w/heos/1.html My vote. Not loosing anything buying this one, except a warranty and some B.S you will never use or care about. If you look around, hold out for another 2 months, you will find the X4500 for about half price when the new models roll out. Happens every year, and is how I buy mine.
