Triangle Port/Cornscala - Sold

Recommended Posts

 

Cornscala horn speaker - ampsandsound Hudson
For sale is a new Cornscala 3 way horn speaker system. Selling off my newly built Klipsch style Cornscala's which are modeled after the famous Cornwalls and and built by staff at ampsandsoud. Exactly the same driver compliment as the ampsandsound Hudson. 

 

All parts are new. For those who don't know a Cornscala utilizes the best parts of a Klipsch Cornwall and a La Scala together.

Cabinetry is done with Baltic birch and utilizes biscuits and additional bracing for strength, reduce distortion and resonance. 3/4" Ply with ¼" MDF for a perfectly flat, no resonant surface. Each panel is 1" thick. All braces and back panel are secured with ¼-20 fasteners.
Black satin lacquer. Gorgeous on the eyes.

 

Low frequency driver includes massive direct radiating 15" woofer for bass. This is the same woofer use in the Klipsch 904 and in the Cinema line. The woofer's weight rests on its shoulder and not its face to increase rigidity and minimize basket flex. The additional double motor board around the woofer provides isolation and the rigidity needed for truly chest thumping bass.


 

Midrange horn is sourced from fastlane audio Eliptrac 400 with Fc@ 350 and being crossed @ 450hz. 
Midrange driver is the famous B&C DCM50, Paper Diaphragm material and incredible 400hz usable range. 

 

The Tweeter is fastlaneaudio Contrac (Conical Tratrix Horn) paired with B&C DE-10 Mylar diaphragm crossed and 5800hz will outside of the range of the human voice. 

Crossovers are ALK CSW-450 which is a custom licensed crossover, combining the AP12-450 and the cornscalawal high frequency section. This is a significant improvement over a stock cornscalawal as it proved a 12db 2nd order crossover on the bass thus providing tighter and faster bass response. 

 

All internal wiring is silver plated teflon. This is master piece of a project and far more than the sum of its parts.

Cabinet: 34"H x 24" W x 16" D
Weight: 145lbs/per cabinet
Frequency Response: 34Hz - 20Khz -3db, 98db
 Sensitivity
Willing to ship via road freight. Extensive experience transporting via road freight, reasonable pricing.

Guys, these rarely come up for sale; if you are at all on the fence, you'll regret not getting them while they were here.

 

I spent years trying to come across a good pair and regret the two I passed on.

 

Also, a friend of mine who has ordered these from Justin before swears by his shipping skills. Buy with confidence.

So I've just had the chance to listen to a set of Hudson style cornscalas that Justin built for someone else. I was really lucky to score these from the original owner, and all I can say is WOW. These things are AMAZING. In the past year I've had an all original (but very nice) set of '76 Klipschorns and an all original set of Cornwall IIIs (from 2015, I believe), and these speakers best the other two BY FAR. If you're at all in the market for a $4K+ set of speakers, I can't recommend these enough. I honestly don't think I will ever sell these, and I'm a guy who's on his third set of speakers in 12 months! They're simply outstanding. Considering this is the same price point as a new set of Cornwall IIIs, I think this is a solid deal. I really regretted selling my CWIIIs almost immediately and never thought I'd find anything I liked as much, but boy was I wrong. I can't see letting these cornscalas go after feeling that disappointment. These are keepers, no question about it.

 

This is a really solid buy. I honestly believe that. I am not affiliated with this sale at all, but I thought any users on the fence may want to hear an honest take. If I didn't like them, I'd just keep my mouth shut, but for anyone thinking about these, this is an awesome set of turnkey speakers at a really solid price considering the performance and build quality (my set are built like a tank).

 

Honestly, the only question I have is whether or not Justin can make me some cane grills!

 

For anyone wondering about my setup for the demo, my system was a Benz Micro Ruby cartridge mounted on a Clearaudio turntable. I used a Benz Micro phono stage and an Audion Sterling Anniv. EL34 H/W integrated tube amp. Literally the only changes I've made to my system over the past year have been a power cord for my amp, and I replaced the stock tubes with some nice NOS. I feel like the demos with all three speakers was pretty equivalent across this past twelve months.

Super kind words... thank you. I will say. I started out on this forum knowing next to very little. This forum st large, Dave Harris and ALK were instrumental... That and my wife being incredibly tolerant :-). She has come to accept that speakers are made, used and sold... Its a lot of the fun in it for me. 

Building 3-4 pair a year you get to try some stuff and learn a thing or two.

I am surprised that these have not been grabbed yet by some member here. Superb parts and build. A fine looking set of custom loudspeakers. Somebody make a home for these.

Surprised.

And if I thought you'd go for a trade I'd offer you my two pair of Heritage shipped to you to get a hold of those beauties.

Short on bucks, long on want!
