[NEW GUY ALERT] Tire Kicking: Cornwall IV & Heresy IV


Recommended Posts

Still allowing things to happen and also trying not to drive everyone crazy with my dysfunctions. 
I have to say that it’s amazing that one could have a 7” woofer rated at -3db @50hz and then hear a 12” woofer rated at -4db at 48hz with the only other difference being front vs rear port but the bass output is startling. STARTLING.
 

As the Quicksilver does phase invert I remembered at work that I didn’t reverse the speaker wires. Did that first thing home and I don’t know that I hear a diff. I also put a  piece of .65” foam board under the rear of each speaker to aim them forward more (vs up) and today the teeter seems far more assertive.

 

Duran Duran S/T (Original pressing)

The Cult Sonic Temple (30th Anny repress)

Sisters Of Mercy Vision Thing

 

All had very extended tweeter action.
 

I will probably run a sub as planned but holy crap man, if the Heresy makes this kind of bass I’d have been F—-ed with Cornwalls 😱

 

that’s it for now. In a week or two I’ll swap the Focals back in and then I’ll know.

 

thanks again ✌🏼

Ok so question here as while I’m enjoying the speakers now greatly, my set up is exposed posed by the Sensitivity.

 

while moving some connections on the preamp (turned off) I noticed some hiss from the speakers with just the amp on. When I flipped the preamp on that sound was almost completely eliminated but then while listening to either tv or records I get this quiet but audible super high pitched sound.
 

I feel like the amp really grips these speakers and so I’d ideally like to stick with it. I do feeL the gain on the preamp is way high and part of me wonders if I should try the Schiit Sys again and if good with it sell the Quicksilver (which is interesting that people love Quicksilver amps but not their preamp). And look at like a Herron VTSP-3. With the SYS I can’t run a sub though (obviously). 

 

Thoughts?

try a cheater plug (lifts ground) on either the pre or on the amp (or which ever unit has a three prong plug) that may deal with your hiss problem.
