70th Anniversary Limited Edition La Scala and Cornwalls (COMING SOON)

Recommended Posts

Can someone please show me the thread comparing the various Heritage speaker sizes together. I've looked and looked. Lost the place. 

Thanks.

Kinda gives me an idea what can fit in the other room. Didn't realize that the Cornwall's were bigger than the Bell's. Whoa.

Anyway, all about proportions. 

Thanks!

 

Where do the Forte fit size wise in that lineup?

Cornwalls are TALLER, not really bigger.

I think that marketing material photo is a bit misleading....you can of course find the dimensions on the web site.

Now that jimjimbo has pointed it out, it appears the images in that 1980's brochure picture were cut and pasted. The specs for the years of those speakers pictured indicate the La Scala is 35 1/4" tall, the Belle is 35 5/8" and the Cornwall is 35 3/4". The Klipschorn style B is 52" tall.

Thanks for clearing that up.

I was kind of shocked, not surprised, when Klipsch went from Baltic Birch to MDF.  I know it works just fine, but it that crap gets well, you find out real fast that MDF is simply thick paper.  Then, to charge the absurd price of $14,000, silly as hell.  Simply follows the Greater Fool theory.

You need to learn a little bit about engineered MDF...

I'm sure someone will correct me if I've got this wrong... But, starting with v1.5, wasn't the CW available from the factory with an optional riser? That might account for the difference in height. The photo might be accurate (?).

Not to make a big deal out of it, or anything; but, considering printing technology of the time (printers were using negatives and stat cameras, waxing type to paste-boards, etc.) I would say the image, as presented, is likely authentic. I did graphics in a print shop back then: As I look at the secondary and tertiary lighting, shadows, reflections... It would have been next to impossible to pull that off (no Photoshop)--and even if you did a great job--you still couldn't avoid 'leaving tracks in the snow' with that arrangement of objects in those lighting conditions...

 

In addition, it seems out-of-character for PWK. Its hard to imagine him tolerating less-than-accurate marketing and not being embarrassed by it. Its a matter of integrity. Just my 2 cents. Who knows...
