  1. I think you might find that the bass response was curtailed more by the smaller cabs than the woofer change. I doubt the company will give you new inspection stickers for speakers that were remade into cabinets that did not match the original specs, and one of the three drivers being replaced. You should be able to lift the paper labels off the "new" cabs successfully. Google something like label removal chemicals or sprays.
  2. In that case, I would pass myself unless I needed a set for another room. Keep your eyes out for a reasonable pair of KG 5.5, that might be worthwhile for you.
  3. I should say something helpful... They look decent, some small dings on the risers. If they are $200 or less, they are a good deal IMHO.
  4. @Yukon888. Welcome to the forum. It would be good if we could see the serial numbers, that would help a lot.
  5. Wecome to the Forum. The repair you suggested will most likely be okay. If not, it needed replaced anyway... *<;o)
  6. I hope that there is another prodigy that @Chief bonehead can foster and teach, to bring up the next generation. PWK started something that will hopefully become a grand tradition.
  7. Here is a video where a guitarist plays a copy of the very first electric guitar built by the genius Les Paul: (LOTS of cool history!)
  8. That's funny. Leo Fender was friends with Les Paul, and had access to the research Les was performing in his creation of the world's first electric guitar. Gibson was waffling and not sure that Les Paul's creation would sell, so Fender came out with the first commercial guitar. Even though Fender was having a field day selling these things, Gibson still balked about putting their name on these guitars, so Les said "Put my name on it".

    The easiest way to do pictures is in my signature at the bottom of this post. If you have any questions, please let me know.
  10. Those beat my deal on Epic CF3’s for $100. I’m jealous (but not too much)...
  11. Have you been drinking red wine next to your speakers again, Randy?
  12. Set up your Cornwalls and follow geoff.'s advice. If you look at the bottom of my signature, there is a quote from Paul Klipsch. Most anything "bad" you will hear in other recordings are not a failure on the part of the Cornies, as explained by the man himself, PWK. Give your ears some time to get used to what you are hearing. It is a more faithful re-creation of what was recorded than any other speaker system in this price range. Another fantastic recording is "Owner of a Broken Heart". Play that at your normal volume, and you will fall in love.

    Wow, I haven't heard that one in years.

    The other issue is the fact that this is a Klipsch owned and operated site. Their playground, their ball and bat, their rules.
