Klipschorn Wings

Recommended Posts

I have seen mentioned in random posts "wings" for the Klipschorn. Can someone here direct me to a link or thread that contains more info. I have a pair of '77 vintage Khorns and soon to be moving them into a new home with my first listening room. Thought about the possibility of adding the if there is sound agreement it is a worthy project. I can live with them easy enough "as is" but thought it might be a good time to work on em if it's worth the effort.

 

Thanks in advance!

False corners? I have full corners on the walls surrounding the Khorns...10" of steel reinforced poured concrete and 2x4 insulated walls with 5/8" sheetrock. I am not referring to false corners, I am talking about wings attached to the speaker to enhance the bottom end. There is a photo here somewhere, maybe the Pilgramage...

The corners you describe, if they extend out uninterrupted for about 48"on both sides, is all you need for your Klipschorns to perform properly, as long as they fit tight into the corners with no gaps.

Using false corners with the Khorns in the room corners enables the decoupling of the HF/MF (i.e., top hat) aiming requirement from bass bin-wall sealing requirement to be able to simultaneously maximize LF extension and improve imaging in-room, especially if you sit farther back from the crossing point of the Khorn centerlines.

 

Additionally, I recommend using some type of bass EQ boost in-room around 31 Hz--about 4-8 dB of boost at 1/3 octave filter width.  Some sort of measurement means to verify the resulting response would be quite useful in setting the final EQ parameters.

I agree with Chris but I'd add that while you are EQ-ing you need a sharp hi-pass filter in the chain to prevent overdriving. PWK suggested 28 Hz for the Klipschorn.
