And there was that CW III with the Heresy mid horns. Which, Gary Gillum, former Klipsch Chief Engineer was puzzled about. I spoke to Bob Crites about the K600 horn. He purchased the old tooling from Klipsch and had his name molded into it. He said the horns were selling well, especially in Japan. When I got around to measuring my Cornwall 1's (still have them in storage), I found that original K600 horn, on the baffle, goes down to 500 Hz. I remember PWK telling me that after he designed the K500 for the Belle Klipsch, that he thought the K400 was longer than it needed to be. I always liked PWK's economy of design, which allowed the Klipschorn to "retain the crown" even after JBL came out with their more expensive version of a Corner horn, that sounds like crap in comparison.
