    I have a pair of corner horns from I think 1981/82. They are made of Brazilian Rosewood.

    Just stunning!

    I picked the wood panels with my deceased husband in 1982. We went to the factory in ARKANSAS. They said ours would be made the week after because they were finishing up Emmie Lou Harris LaScalas .😃

    I don’t know the value and would be interested if you do.

     

    Frieda, I would strongly suggest you post an ad in the Garage Sale section with pictures.  Also be sure to let people know city & state where these are located.
    If someone on the board doesn't buy them, we all love to share great finds with others.
    Good luck!

  2. What did you use for your crossover?  I have a pair of KSM-1's that I want to do a similar build with and am still searching for ideas.  I was thinking of going to Crites for a 2-way crossover (possibly from their Cornscala).  I will possibly build new cabs and use the original motor board.

    I just picked up a pretty beat up set of KP-301’s. I have completely disassembled them and am sanding/ filling the cabinets to get ready for paint. They have 2 different crossovers. Speaker A has a KP-3.0A crossover while Speaker B has a KP-3.0B crossover. Both speakers have the correct K-79k tweeters and K57-k squawkers. Speaker A has the original K-48k woofer while the other has a JBL E140-8, which I plan on replacing . Does anyone know the difference between these 2 crossovers and if they are compatible and which one is the correct one for this speaker. The serial #s are 90012825 and 8932325 respectively. Thank you in advance for any information. Cheers!

    Pics!!  We need pics! :)

    Purchased the lot today, just got home with it.  Couple corners dinged up on the KG1’s but they sound good.  Forgot how much I enjoy the sound of KG4’s!  I haven’t hooked up the rest of it.  Selling some, keeping some.  

    Congrats!!!  I love it when a fellow board member scores.

    (not my ad)

    1990 Klipschorn -- $4200

    1992 Chorus II -- These are the desirable ones with 15" on back side -- $1500 These are in walnut with black cloth, and in exceptional condition for their age.

    1986 Cornwall II -- New Crites crossover with Titanium tweeters were installed recently. The change is astounding. The sound rivals the mightly Khorn -- $1500

    1998 KLF 30 -- If you like bass, these have it! Dual 12" woofers in each cabinet. Relatively few of these were made and therefore they can be very hard to find. $900

    KLF 10 -- cabinets are in fair condition. For $400, you can't go wrong. VERY strong bass from dual 10". Titanium driver installed recently.

    KLF 20 -- All original in good condition. $700

  6. I've refinished a few different pairs of speakers.  Heresy BR's that were painted grey, a mismatched pair of H1's (Fir Black and Oak) that had thick gooey black industrial paint. And pair of Oak Cornwall II's that were in super sad shape with huge gashes, burn marks and rings on top.

    I like black lacquer so I've gone black with all of them except a pair of HBR's that I lightly sanded and used Watco oil on.

    First one turned out ok, IMO. 

     

    No Randy, no staples, didn´t want them to be seen later. And i didn´t want to buy a stapler just for this. Just glue and clamping, starting with the large areas. The edges I "pre-folded" with clamps and a heat-gun, that made gluing around the edges easier for me afterwards.

    Great idea on pre-fold and heat gun!
    I've got new grill frames and fabric (from Crites) cut and ready to go.  The fabric is quite rigid so was wondering what to do.  Thanks!

    Hey new poster here.  I acquired two pair of heresy speakers from my wife’s uncle this past weekend. I am trying to figure out what series they are. I believe if reading the serial number correct they were made in 1983.  Any help appreciated!

    Can't go wrong with those!  Have you hooked them up yet?

    Like many others I am down the rabbit-hole of panning to build a pair of Cornscala "D Style". I chose the 2 way design to simplify the construction, design and availability of parts.

    Being based in Italy my main problem is finding crossovers for a reasonable price; with ALK and Crites both based in the US I would spend more in shipment + taxes than the actual product.

     

    Are there available (for sell too) some schematics/details shots of a crossover for a 2-way Cornscala (single crossover at 500Hz)? I am willing to DIY it.

     

    My components are:

    - Faital HF140 Driver

    - Faital LTH142 Horn

    - Eminence Kappa-15C Woofer (is there something from Faital or B&C that can compare?)

    Any help is much appreciated! Thank you

    Please post pics of the process!  I'm going to be doing the same project.  I'll be curious to see how you choose to do the cabinets.  Good luck!

  10. That would be like buying that new Ferrari and pulling the motor trying to find 3 more horsepower.
    IMO; Spend a considerable amount of time with them before trying to improve them.  Try a few different amp setups and room treatments.

  11. His valuation for his CW's is WAY high.  Cornwall in WV for only $1200.  Vintage Klipsch Cornwall Speakers - electronics - by owner - sale (craigslist.org)
    BTW; the CR2020 for $700 is an absolute steal.  I'd grab that and wait on some Cornwalls at a reasonable price.

    Take a look at these.  Says "must sell".  Maybe you can get them to $1800 (if they're decent condition). Klipsch speakers original Cornwalls - electronics - by owner - sale (craigslist.org)
