I honestly really liked the new Cornwalls A LOT. But man $6500 is a big ask for a monkey coffin, where most expensive part looks like the veneer on 3 sides. Dealers will not budge. Probably breaks their agreement.

Pricing on everything has gotten really crazy all around lately.

No doubt about that Joe. Get the Crites plans and build a set.
I think they have plans. Bob"s son is great to deal with. It appears Crites will soldier on..

Joe, man that sucks...dont know what I'd do if I lost Jani...

Joe, since you were here last time I've tri-amped the K's.
I have a 700 B WOPL on the woofs, 400 WOPL on the mid horns, which are.now BMS 4592's and a Marantz 250 driving the ME 10 tweets. All this being fed by Ashly XR2001.electronic crossover....oh yeah...upgraded the pre to a Jeff Rowland Coherence II Ser II.
IT TOOK A lot of hash off the top end. Really crisp bass, smooth highs now. I couldnt be happier...a sub would be just muddy the waters
..

If ya ever get near Gillette would love to have ya here for a bit...
Horns done right are pricey.....but to me worth every.penny.
I also got a pair of Ohm F's. for the quiter moments. .
How’s the noise floor on all that? I don’t remember the WOPL being noisy- but I don’t recall it being dead-silent either

Yeah I noticed his prices bumped up about 20-30% too. Sniffer liked those but gave fair warning about spending all that bread on something not auditioned… and it’s a good point.

If go for the crites upgrades on these 5.5’s , the outcome could steer me closer- or away- depending on that outcome.

Hard a minor scare last night. Was listening to Chick Corea and I heard some some clipping on some piano peaks, left channel.

Made me think it was a bad tweeter on these speakers I JUST bought. Maybe something from the electronics.


Turned out to be in the recording.

Headphones sure are handy.

Found the big overall effect on the bass performance- it’s the taps on the Jolida amp…

Never noticed the changes on other speakers, but with these, the 4ohm taps make it sound more like comparable solid state amps I have here, bass boost is gone.

But the rest of it sounds not great.

So I’m sticking with the 8 ohm taps because it just sounds better to me. All that matters really.

A little fat on the bottom? Yes please
