    Re: New!!! Klipsch Cornwall IV .....

    Sean of Zero Fidelity reviews the Cornwall IV. I settled on tubes for now, Quicksilver Horn Monos to be specific. The softer treble of the Quickie balances the Klipsch's tendancy towards a zippy top end when using the 'wrong' amp. One other observation, I will be experimenting with pedestals to raise the speaker the tweeters are at or just below ear level and from 8-9 ft away in my listening chair, if I crouch down the presentation is smoother listening on the mid-horn's axis.

    Re: New!!! Klipsch Cornwall IV .....

    When I was using my father's '79 Cornwall's, I used a 0.75" thick strip of wood under the front part of the riser to tilt the speaker up a little (kinda like the Heresy's), and it did the trick. Then I did the ultimate tweak... Disconnected the midrange and tweeter completely and slapped a big ole' honkin' Altec 511B horn on top with a 902-8 driver on the back of it, and active crossover.


    And on that note, I love my little Heresy III's. Once they're blended in properly with a couple of stereo subs and have some tubes in front of them, they're sublime. I can only imagine what the new Cornwall IV's sound like.
