  1. Might be a great opportunity for someone in California! They look to be in very good shape and the 90w Sansui is a very nice unit. 3 days left and sitting at only at $24 today. Stereo system | Live and Online Auctions on HiBid.com
  2. I have a pair of black Heresy IIIs I purchased new in 2010 from a retail audio store - very good condition (slight damage to veneer on the bottom corner of the front face; otherwise excellent condition). Would like to move up to Cornwalls (for many reasons, but the 15" drivers are the largest differentiator). Hoping to find someone with Cornwalls who is downsizing (moving into smaller space, SFA, finances, etc.), but not ready to completely give up that Klipsch Heritage sound ... trade my Heresy's plus cash for your Cornwalls. Will consider any model or finish. Thanks Bob
  3. Forte III to Cornwall IV I was lucky to get a trade in offer for full price on what I paid for the Forte III to upgrade to the Cornwall IV. It was a no brainer deal, so I had to take it up. Those that say the Cornwall is like a Forte on steroids aren’t wrong. They deliver a bigger presentation more effortlessly. The word I keep coming back to with the Cornwall is delicacy. Slightly ironic given the sheer size of these speakers. They are massive. But as large as they are, the craftsmanship is impeccable. The shift to a polymide compression driver in the midrange is immediately noticeable; the scale of the larger mid horn is perfectly complimented by the silky smoothness of that driver. Vocals and instruments are effortlessly natural, presented on a wide and deep soundstage. Imaging is tighter, particularly noticeable on good recordings. Bass is a bit different with the Cornwall. It’s bigger, cleaner and deeper, but initially feels weaker than the Forte. That might be due to the rear passive on the Forte creating extra bass reinforcement, or possibly the tuning with the passive or the prior crossover design creating a mid bass bump. However, the Cornwall feels more balanced overall and the bass feels more natural. Drums are ethereal. For double the price I paid for the Forte (it’s now priced higher), the upgrade was absolutely worth it. The music is bigger, more natural and lifelike, and more detailed. It’s more delicate and warmer, more nuanced.

  5. Hi everyone! I’ve been lurking for a bit and reading a lot around the forum. I’m looking to jump in with a WTB for Cornwall 1 or 2 or Chorus 2. I’m in the Washington, DC suburbs (MD) and work in Baltimore, so I am looking around these two areas. I’m aware of the one CW1 listed here already, but that is in flux. I’m also interested in @Laurie Cornwalls if/when she’s ready to sell. I figured it was reasonable to post a WTB just in case someone in the area is thinking about selling. Thanks for looking
  6. I just paid $900 for a pair of 1975 Cornwalls. I listened to them from a rather weak amp but it was still singing. the owner said his relative gifted it to him 2 years ago and it was taking up too much space. There is a 1inch chip on one side that is deeper than the Veneer. I wasn't sure if I should buy it, but realized finding a heritage Klipsch 10 minutes away while I was looking to find Forte or Chorus was a sign, so I pulled the trigger. The color is C-WO (oiled walnut?) What are the things I should look into when I bring this baby home? Did I get a deal or was it a ripoff?
  7. Hello, hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I need to convert my CW3 Crossover network to H3. The CW3 kit was originally bought to experiment with my cornscala. Couple of years ago I upgraded my Hersey 1.5 to H3, with CW3 Xover and K28, K53Ti and K107 Tweeters. And for a while I used a Autoformer to lower the mid and tweeter section by 3db. Now instead, I am using a RME DAC's EQ to lower mid and tweeter by 3db. But this only solves digital sources. I would instead like to make the network a proper H3 network. I checked with Michael Crites, he does not have the schematics of either. If any of you have schematics of CW3 and H3 and since both the H3 and CW3 are no longer in current production, could you share them ? BTW, I am in the process of building a top section cabinet (trapezoid) as I like the higher soundstage with the mid and tweeter on top of the cabinet. Thanks & Cheers
  8. Hello Gentlemen, I am seeking a pair of EMPTY Klipsch Cornwall Cabinets. Please contact me a 65AmpsLondon2 [AT] GMAIL DOT com. Thanks, bob
  9. Local guy has a pair of vintage "Export, Oiled Walnut" Cornwall speakers for sale, but neither of us know what they are worth. Hoping I can get a few price quotes here, I would appreciate it. These are original Cornwalls, right? Not IIs. One serial = 15S398. Does the "S" mean '78? The driver seems pretty faded. Anything to worry about? Thank you! Tom
  10. Hi there I am a complete neophyte when it comes to audio and speaker details so I apologize up front. My mother has a pair of Klipsch Cornwall speakers that my uncle bought in 1988 and she got when he passed away. She is getting ready to move and I am helping her minimize the items she needs to move. Anyway, would love to get some advice on 1. A reasonable price to sell 2. Any other information I might need to obtain on the technical side I have attached some photos but will get some with both of them in one pic, it’s too difficult for my 83 yo mom to move.

  12. Hello K-peeps! Thank you for allowing me into your inner sanctum, I’ve enjoyed learning about Klipsch while gathering info on the speakers I am selling for a friend, but most of all I’ve enjoyed seeing that people are still passionate and excited about hobbies and things they enjoy for fun. So thank you for that breath of fresh air and... I am selling a pair of floorstanding Klipsch Cornwall speakers, CWO (Cornwall Walnut Oiled). They have consecutive serial numbers: 23U771 & 23U772 and per those numbers they were built in 1980 (learned that here!) All parts are original but they’re missing the Klipsch nameplates on the grilles. Cosmetically they could use some cleaning & refinishing. The grille fabric is fraying in spots and the cabinets have some surface scratches and paint scuffs but there’s no structural damage. My friend tells me they work fine but I’m sure they could use some upgrades. They are located in Bremerton, Washington for you to pick up but delivery and shipping are possible options that we can discuss, depending on your location. Asking $1111 (because it’s my favorite number) /obo (because it always says that)😁 Thank you for sharing your time, knowledge and lovely community! ~Brandie B.
  13. Klipsch Cornwall Loudspeaker set Model Type: CD-BR. Original owner purchased (1979/80) from audiophile on Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak, Michigan. Sequential serial numbers (155616 & 155617). Both in working order one of the woofers needs to be looked at and/or serviced still works. Located in SE Michigan (Macomb Township) Call Andre @ 586-873-7929 Asking: $1,450.00 negotiable (local preferred or +shipping for out of state)
  14. Hi all! I’m right outside of Nashville looking to buy a center for my heritage setup. I’ve seen people on here that have built a 3-way center with a mid and tweeter taken from either a Heresy or Cornwall donor. I’m super interested in a build like that! If not I’m looking for an academy or KV-4. I’m running Cornwall L/R and forte 2 surrounds and a KV-3 center in my 5.1setup. Right now and it sounds pretty good, but for those of us that frequent this page, pretty good ain’t gon’ cut it! Thanks in advance! Bobby Bobby 2 2 Times Times!
  15. Hi! I am a happy Klipsch RF 7 ii owner for 5 years now. Now i am thinking on a serious upgrade to Klipsch Cornwall 4. I will use them for Music & Movies. My room is absolut 20 square meters. Is this an good upgrade? Best regards. Jonas.
  16. I have this pair of Cornwalls. The serials are consecutive. (3B63,3B64) Both are signed by the same people. They are the Vertical types (mid and tweet mounting) They have the K33J woofers. WHAT year were they made? Thanks for the HELP!
  17. Hey all, I’d love to find out about these speakers, what the models are, dos don’t etc... thanks in advance, new to hifi!! Sam
  18. SOLD-SOLD-SOLD I just purchased these. They took 3 months to get here. During that 3 months I have purchased a set that was designed for my Cornscalas and my listening habits specifically. I am sure you know about these already if you are reading this. I have about 1 Hour on them. I wanted to do a comparison with the other 2 crossovers I have. I paid $358.18 that included shipping and 3 months of wait time. I'll let them go for $325 shipping included and no 3 month wait time to the lower 48 states.
  19. I have a pair of Klipsch Cornwall III in East Indian rosewood for sale. They are 7 months old and are in perfect condition. Purchased from an authorized dealer. Original box and manual. Asking $2,500. Buyer to arrange shipping. Due to the size, I would prefer local pickup. Location: Plymouth, Massachusetts.
  20. Hi guys, Just want to ask, if you have to choose between Cornwall I or II, which one you prefer & why? Is it true that the CW I is easier to work with because all drivers are mounted from the back while CW II is front mounted? Both seller said they are in good working condition, so no need to upgrade Caps/Xover anytime soon, but I will do the upgrade anyway. Cosmetically, the CW I has few dings here & there and does't seat on riser while the CW II is excellent (from the pictures). I'm in a position that can not audition both CWs. Any suggestions & advices much appreciated. Thanks, Jimmy
  21. For Sale in Minneapolis, MN. Fantastic condition/sounding. All original drivers/Crites Crossover.
  22. Looking to buy a pair of Cornwalls (I II or III) near central Kentucky, ie: Ohio, West Virginia, Tennessee... Prefer stock (or close to it) in excellent condition with a wood veneer (original finish preferred).
  23. Looking to purchase a pair of vintage 1975-1981 Klipsch Cornwall I speakers with cabinets that are very good condition. I live in Chicago but willing to make the drive for the right pair. Thank you!
  24. I am trying to figure out my options for a new center speaker. My current setup is: Left front and Right front: Cornscalas Center KLF C-7 Left rear and right rear: La Scalas Atmos ceiling CDT 5800-C-2 Left and right surrounds RP-252 I feel my center is holding my system back and am looking for something that is more appropriate. Some options I am considering are: 1) Cornscala 2) La Scala 3) Cornwall Those are the obvious contenders. Would a pair of Chorus work too? Are there any other options I should consider? I keep looking for a single of one of those, but haven’t found one secondhand yet.
