  1. I would buy both try em out and keep the one you like best. The CW is not about the ability to go louder, thats not why its bigger. Bigger box adds a bit of realism to the sound imo. Hard to explain and can only be experienced. The obvious difference is the low end, the CW goes lower and its a clean low end. Good luck man let us know what you do!

  2. I have CW, my room is about 13x13, I like the huge soundstage. I think the biggest sound difference is the bass and like I said just even more real sound just due to the size. It would be hard for me to downsize now. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. Yea man pics, mine took an hour or two to kinda break in and let my ear adjust, i have not stopped listening. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  4. @Fido You got me in suspense! Hope all is well. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. In my opinion book match doesnt mean kinda close, which mine are not that. Its you split the wood and the two cut faces become the veneer, basically the speakers should be twins to within just a hair if any of variance. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. I do not follow, do you mean maybe the veneer was installed upside down? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  7. I agree with you. I am bummed about the possibility of having to get them replaced but if I get offered a discount I would jump on that. I think the value lies mostly in proper serial #'s, the veneer not being identical is somewhat minor. I will say though they are very interesting looking in my room, they really stand out as being different but because its just a flat color it actually looks cool. Like a couple tigers brithers sitting in the corner. If they matched identical it would actially be a bit less interesting. That being said im not suggesting non matched is better, but what I got is working for me, but I am not ok paying full price. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. I bet yours turn out just fine. Let me know how it turns out. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. Yes all that matches on mine. The backs match the serial numbers on the boxes. Same guys signature on mine too. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  10. This from the spec sheet on the website. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  11. Haha thats awesome. Im not that OCD, but I do like getting what I paid for. There is a certain amount of rolling the dice with the wood grain. How is the book match on yours? Is the monster on both speakers? Curious since you also went black ash. Black Ash Forte IV is what I had originaly ordered before changing that to CW IV. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. You made me think about how to get a better shot. Here is one of the left side of each speaker, I used Flash and it worked well. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. The sides are worse, but I could not get a good shot with the light I have. I will take more Saturday. But yea its two comepletely different veneers, the one with the tighter grain almost looks like oak on the sides. The one with the bigger hoops and bigger pores looks the same on the sides and is completely different. Like I said though I think I can live with it, but it is not what I expected when I paid. I also have a couple pair of Forte III's come through and I could not tell one speaker from the other due to the book matching. Take a look at the lines that run accross the top of on speaker, those lines do not exist in the other one. If it was one of the other wood types it would be easier to see, here all we have to compare is the wood grain because the speakers are basically satin black with no detail.

  14. I recorded with my Samsung 8 phone, use headphones and it will give you a sense. When the voice comes in the phone picked it up small but it almost sounds hes in the room trying to sing. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  15. Shakeydeal...dude...I never knew drums could sound this good from a speaker...for whatever reason, Metallica sounds insanely good on Klipsch Heritage Speakers. The experience is unreal. Klipsch is the best period, any of them, just get the highest and latest model you can afford at the time and you did good. As I typed this the next song came on...man the guitars...im so happy guys thats all I can say. I have a feeling the AHB2 with its non existant of even hint of a hiss pairs well with super sensitive speakers. Although I have never heard tubes, I have a feeling the AHB2 comes close to the tube sound because its so clear. Maybe there are some other benefits from it being SS idk.
