  1. I had Crites rebuild the B-3 crossovers last week on my Cornwall 1's. Made a HUGE difference in clarity and tone. Nice clean Cornwalls you have there. Congrats!
  2. Thebes, why are people silly for offering up their opinions? By that logic you are also silly. Marantz 8b's would be great but I don't have $3,000 to spend on an amp. Good for you for finding one for $50. Newbie here so I don't know what any of this means. Care to give me the cliff notes? Or just tell me to get about a 35 watt amp and call it good. :) Thanks for the helpful input guys.
  3. Ok thanks for your input guys. I have my eye on several Marantz's, and really like the huge powerful 23xx series, but also enjoy having more money in my pocket ;). Is it possible to over power Cornwalls? Would 125 watts/channel be too much (as in the Marantz 2325)? Will do Thomas. I plan to put the crossovers back in then have a listen, then install the tweeters. I'll let you know how it goes.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm new here! I just got a pair of Cornwall 1's, later model with B-3 crossovers. I am having Crites re-build the crossovers and I am getting new Crites tweeters. They should arrive at the end of the week. I have been using vintage stereo equipment for a handful of years now but I am just recently learning about the terminology and how it all works. From my research, I learned about speaker sensitivity and that Klipsch speakers have high sensitivity so they don't need much power to get them to make sound. I have also read that I need to get an amp with wattage much more than the speaker wattage (not sure the correct terminology to use here). I want to get a 1970's 22xx or 23xx series Marantz receiver to power the Cornwall's. Any thoughts on which receiver would be ideal (or wattage range, watts/channel)? Thoughts on sound quality with a 1970's Marantz and Cornwalls? Thanks!
