Klipsch Cornwall

Recommended Posts

I have a pair of Klipsch Cornwall speakers, type CBR, serial 35Y674 and 35Y675 in mint condition. I want to confirm how to identify the month and year the speakers were manufactured? 

 

Thanks

John

welcome to the forum John. klipsch used the letters  A thru Y   and Y was 1983

C-BR = Cornwall Birch Raw

Y = 1983

the 35 could stand for the 35th week, i don't really know or really cared about the week, just the year

That is about the time Klipsch was using the K-52-H mid driver (my '83 Heresys have K-52-H drivers).  Do your CWs have K-52-H or K-55-V drivers?  Just curious, some think the K-52-H driver sounds better.

35Y674 me and the 34674th Cornwall made since the alpha-numeric serial number system started.

Those were built a couple of months before I left in 1983, So it is HIGHLY LIKELY that I built them..
