Just looking at pictures of the new Cornwall IV makes me happy.

Me too. It's nice to see Klipsch finally going to an Axpona-type show. Relative to the myriad of "outrageously overpriced little boxes with little woofers" Klipsch Cornwall and Heresy stomps them on a "quality sound per dollar" basis. I've seen people charge $15,000 for a pair of bookshelf speakers that are bested by a $600 pair of Klipsch RP-600M's you can get on Amazon with free delivery to your door. Also please note that NO ONE in any audio company I know of ever talks about Intermodulation Distortion, for which, among other things, PWK received an AES Silver Medal of Honor.

My favorite is the Lee Enfield No. 4 MK1 which I shoot in the CMP matches.  But back to the CW4, I would love to hear an A-B with the CW1 (and with the Forte III).  I was never too keen on the CW3 mid horn.  I suspect the CW4 will be considerably smoother than the predicate models as you crank 'em up loud.

I agree, and I say.............FINALLY, a worthwhile upgrade that has existed since the Forte II's Tractrix Horn (kudos to Roy for that too). Too bad Roy had to wait so long to do these upgrades. Blame it on the corporate bean counters???

Dave Harris' Eliptrac 400 horns fit nicely in my Klipschorns. K400 upgrade? Check. Tractrix expansion. Check. 2" driver throat. Check.

A bit off topic, but I have a question for @Chief bonehead; are there any Klipsch changes you like? (He may not be able to answer me, or with a mysterious sentence of which he has the secret 😆)

 

It must be nice to be the Chief of speakers who have fans around the world (I'm in France) and tweak them, a bit like a Mustang or a Harley, lucky! 😎

I would think he likes the changes since he designed it :-)

Since @mustang_flht is French and his English is approximate, I interpreted the question as: Are there any DIY mods or tweaks to Klipsch speakers that @Chief bonehead likes. Not as: Does Roy like the changes Roy made.

If that was the question, then the answer may be interesting.

Yesss  😁 I thank @capo72 (Argggg !!! I can not highlight in blue) for his help, and yes my English is approximate:

So, you've measured an Eliptrac 400? If so, please share your data.

He obviously liked the rear ported Heresy idea that has been floating around the forum for a few years now...

Are you drawing a line from ideas on the forum to ending up in a Chief Bonehead design?

 

PWK worked on rear porting since at least the late 1950s.  The Museum has PWK's Port-O-Matic he designed and built for the testing of rear porting.   Roy was mentored by PWK. Roy has over a half-dozen patents in acoustics including  @Chief bonehead, none of which came from an idea floated on a forum.

 

Not sure what's obvious . . .

I think he can pretty much look at it and tell what the DI and the polars are going to be.  Who knows, he and Dave may have talked about it over a beer.

I thought the Khorn was the Corvette, and the Cornwall was the Camaro!

Then the Cornwall 4 must surly be the Firebird given its all new (s)porty flash!

So 1946 it would have easily have been the Chrysler Continental Coupe, 

 

A speaker introduced in "59 would probably be a Corvette.
