  1. Geoff. Thanks for one of the best follow-up posts I’ve ever seen. The rest of the story is priceless.
  2. Any update on this project? Anything you would do differently now?
  3. They were advertised as being in fair condition cosmetically, but good shape sonically. Interesting cabinet geometry, too. I gave them some thought because $800 seemed a real bargain, but I’m out of room and have too many unfinished projects at the moment.
  4. What are your impressions of these speakers? Any comparisons so similar Klipsch would be helpful.
  5. Making a little progress… Went with the aluminum SMAHLs in the decorator Heresy Is. While waiting for an Eminence woofer restock, I went with a Faitalpro 12FH 500. https://faitalpro.com/en/products/LF_Loudspeakers/product_details/index.php?id=151050100 This is pretty comparable to the Eminence Kappalite 3012 HO Neo. The 3012HO Neos are, as of this writing, very hard to find in stock. The crossovers have Sonicaps installed already, so I’ll leave them alone for the moment. The next step is the bass port. I’m going to cut new rear panels for the speakers to preserve the originals.
  6. Dave, Handles and pole mounts would be nice if you have them. I’ll PM for details. Thanks, James
  7. I’m trying to sort out bass port positioning between asymmetric corner placement and centered. I’m using a Kappalite woofer, rather than the deeper profile K-42, so there’s no issue with clearance between the woofer frame and the rear panel.
  8. Thanks for the reply. I should have realized from the earlier posts that he had picked out his woofer. Perhaps the Faitalpro recommendation will help others now that the 4 ohm Kappalite is out of production and is hard to find. I happened upon this thread via the Super Heresy 1.0 and 2.0 threads. It seemed logical that the big speaker could get the same sort of love. I recently became a Cornwall owner courtesy of an unexpected opportunity to pick up a Cornwall-Heresy HT system. I’m surprised by how much I like the Cornwalls. They have a presence that the (as yet unmodified) Heresies can’t quite match.
  9. Saibaba… Did you look at any of the Faitalpro drivers for the Cornwall upgrade? They have several that might be suitable for the Super Cornwall. The 15PR400 comes in 4 ohm and 8 ohm, covers 35 Hz to 4kHz, and has 100dB sensitivity. They are expensive here ($270 each), but could be cheaper in Italy since Faitalpro is based in Milan. I think this model is closest to the 4 ohm Eminence that’s out of production.
  10. I saw these in person on Wednesday and had the chance to listen to them as well as to listen to his upgraded Heresies. The Chorus IIs look good and sound great. Next owner should be very happy with these speakers.
  11. Update: Thanks to WCD for the contact info above... Dave doesn't have any 4 ohm Kappalite 15s... He does have a killer deal on some custom built 12 inch 8 ohm Deltalite IIs. Those could be a candidate for a Heresy upgrade, but I'd need to check the sensitivity. Fortunately, Cameron did have one 4 ohm Kappalite. My other one is on the way here from e-Bay. Cameron was thankful for the referral. Seems like a great guy to deal with, too.
  12. It's all Claude's fault... I'm looking for anywhere from one to three Eminence Kappalite 3015LF4 woofers. The 4 ohm units seem to be out of production, but they pop up from time to time on e-Bay. I'm in the DC area if anybody local has a set. Please PM me if you can help out. Best, James
  13. I'm curious about woofer selection, in part because Claude has a Super Cornwall thread that uses the 15 inch Kappalite 3015LF4 rather than the HO version that he recommends for the Super Heresy 2.0 I'm not trying to be a smarty pants, as I assume he's made the best choices for each speaker as regards sensitivity and interior volume of the speaker. 12 inch Light Weight Eminence Woofer Choices: Kappalite 3012HO vs Kappalite 3012LF vs Deltalite II 2512 Neo Eminence Kappalite 3012HO Neo 12" Driver Specifications: *Power handling: 400 watts RMS *VCdia: 3" *Le: 0.57 mH *Impedance: 8 ohms *Re: 5.5 ohms *Frequency range: 51-3,500 Hz *Magnet weight: 11 oz. *Fs: 51.5 Hz *SPL: 100.5 dB 1W/1m *Vas: 2.86 cu. ft. *Qms: 8.39 *Qes: 0.33 *Qts: 0.32 *Xmax: 6.2 mm *Dimensions: A: 12.38", B: 11.06", 😄 5.63".

I'm happy to order exactly what Claude thinks is right, but if there's an explanation...I'm all for it.
  14. Is the 8 ohm spec a deal breaker on the Kappalite woofer?
