Guys :  the letter designation in Klipsch enclosure names, labelled "type" : what does it means ? 

 

I saw Klispsch Cornwall type CWO, CBR, CDBR and Heresy HWO,  HDBR, my Heresy I are type HBR...

 

Any of you have the key to this code, or is willing to direct me to the matching information source ?

 

Thanks in advance & Cheers,

Where there is many useful informations about codes used by Klipsch.

 

Well - you may already know it, I guess, but anyway it's not bad to share it... :)

The CDBR and HDBR were a particular build type for those speaker models, and they were both replaced by the HBR and the CBR which had identical motor-boards to the finely veneered versions of those speakers.  Actually, the Decorator versions had a better chance of surviving a long drop onto a front corner of the speaker, simply due to the box construction itself.  The Decorator versions had the top edge of the motor-board lapping over the front edge of the top panel, and the bottom edge of the motor-board lapped over the front edge of the bottom panel, then the front edge of the side panels lapped over both the motor-board and the top and bottom panels, which made the box stronger at all four front corners of the assembly for a drop test situation on any of those four front corners.
