Just a note for the next version of this reference guide - my 1984 Cornwall (1.5's) definitely have rear-mounted plastic midrange horns (stamped K-57-K on back of driver - presumably the K-601 plastic horn and K-52-K driver).  I've seen other people post about their plastic horns in late model (1984 to 1985) Cornwalls.  It seems that as some point, just prior to the Cornwall II release, a transition from aluminum to composite plastic occurred.  Pix attached.

My Heresy 1.5s have the same as well.

Great information here. Finally the information I have been looking for. 

I have a pair of La Scala's Type LS-BLS  W/S  Serials 8605379 / 8605380.

I know they were made sometime during in the last week of January or first week of February in 1986.

 

Am I correct in reading the type as -- La Scala Birch Lacquer Stain   Walnut/Stain

 

Thanks

This is a fantastic website of historical data. Thank you!!

I own many Klipsch speakers including a pair of 1979 Klipschorns up front with Chorus IIs in back.

S/N 14T863 & 64, Model # KC-BR indicates birch- raw. What does 'raw' indicate? Unfinished or oiled?

Would cab finishing have been done after leaving the factory? Thanks again.

Raw means they left Hope Arkansas with no finish or stain applied.  Anything that’s on them currently was done after they left the factory.
