  1. When you find 60 year old women attractive.😍
  2. @jimjimbo Jim, I'm in Georgia if you are still looking.
  3. With all the Cornwall's that have been upgraded, I thought it would be easy to find "original" X- overs. Jerry
  4. @loudnproud Thanks for the response, I prefer a match to the one I have. I have not seen a X-over marked as you describe. I would like to see a picture. Jerry
  5. I am in need of one original 'B' crossover. I will take a pair but really need just one. My Cornwall's are 1979's and I want to have original parts. Yes, a recapped x-over is fine, but my first choice is "as delivered from factory". Thanks, Jerry
  6. These are about as clean as one will find, and a price that will be hard to beat. Good luck!

    Stirling Engines

    I bought my "Hot Air" engine in 1977 when I was teaching Math & Science to 5th graders. (made by Solar Engines in Arizona) It still fascinates my 6 and 8 year old granddaughters. @Mallette The issue is low efficiency. In the 60% range I believe. I haven't read on this in years, not certain if there are other problems with the technology.
  8. The panel that needs replaced is small and easily accessed. If these were close to Georgia, I would be on my way to get them. Worst part of the repair is stripping the paint.
  9. @Maximus89 I also thought the price was very high. But in the end, I have exactly what I wanted, and the price was only $40 more than my budget. Jerry
  10. @Maximus89 Grill cloth came from 123Stitch.com I purchased the largest piece to cover my Cornwall's.($77.39)
  11. I purchased the Cornwall badges from him a couple of months ago. Maybe not perfect, only have seen pictures of original's to compare, so they look great on my refurbished Cornwall's. Klipsch used these badges on their Limited Edition Cornwall III's (The Irish Linen grill cloth looks good too too!)
  12. @Alexander A few months ago I also decided to try tubes. I listened to several different amps including a vintage Dynaco, a newly built VTA 120, a vintage Fisher 800B, Fisher 500C as well as a Scott 299. All of the above amplifiers will probably cost more than $500, but it is very likely you can find one for less than $1000. I purchased a fully rebuilt Fisher 500C, in part because it has the capability of powering 2 sets of speakers as well as a center channel. It also has a phono section and an FM receiver. I am very satisfied, but I am not getting rid of my Marantz 2285. As others have suggested, you need to listen to several amps before you make your decision. Good luck!
  13. EJ, Thanks for the note. I look forward to attending. I will see if I can find someone to come with me. Jerry
  14. @Jvitti1970 It would depend on what wood is under the black paint. If the paint was applied over a plywood surface, you may be successful. If it is applied over an MDF surface, you may not achieve the surface finish you desire. I seems that Klipsch used a pretty high quality birch plywood. The outer surface of Raw Birch cabinets I have worked on are free of defects. I have been able to do much sanding without finding flaws. The LaScala cabinet pictured in this thread required the removal of 6-8 thousandths of material. Even at that, some black paint remained in the deepest grain. I chose to leave some of the paint in the grain rather than risk damage by sanding thru the veneer. The result was just a little "patina" to the finish that I find very acceptable. You might experiment on the bottom of the cabinet and see what you find. Jerry
  15. This is helpful. Thanks
