Summary: Once I realized that my Kilpsch Chorus speakers were over 25 years, I decided to purchase a pair of Cornwalls. My expectations of buyer’s remorse did not happen as these speakers sound so good and brings out a new dimension to both music and television shows.
Summary: I have owned my speakers (Infinity SM 152's) since 1991 and getting fantastic service and sound from them, but they have started to lose their edge lately and need some attention, so I figured it was time for a new pair of speakers. What I found was a wide variety of speakers for many different purposes.
Summary: For contemporary jazz my Cornwall 3's seem to be a perfect fit. The bass response is exceptional(10/10) and just what the doctor ordered when belting out Stanley Clarke,John Patitucci,Jacco,or Marcus Miller. The mid driver was a bit hot for my taste but perfect for rock music (9/10). I have mastered the mid drivers sound by recording my tracks in adobe audition with a slight mid-range cut. Treble is also great (9/10).
Summary: Everyone uses MDF now. It's because it doesn't resonate like plywood. The cost difference between MDF and plywood is not that great... especially the 1" thick MDF used in the La Scala speakers. Plus, MDF is harder on tooling... sparks fly from carbide blades when you're cutting it... that's the carbide coming off your blade. THEREFORE, unless you're moving the speakers a lot (using them in different venues), MDF is the way to go.
A real live speaker, power, projection,emotion....

Summary: As an owner of the Cornwall II's among other Klipsch speakers I own, this is exceptional. I bought my original pair back in 1986. Since then I have replaced parts, not out of need, but because I wanted them to always sound their best. In 2005 I replaced both crossovers (thank you Bob Crites), both midrange diaphragms and now I expect another 20 years of truly high quality sound.
Summary: Even though I don't own the new Cornwall III, I do have a pair of the Cornwall I. Purchased new in 1972 and still in perfect order today these speakers are awsome. Just be sure the sound going in is what you want. Because Klipsch will produce exactly what you give it. My kids and nephews have grown up around these speakers and without any doubt were the first choice for their own home systems today. But they are BIG, square and ugly.
Summary: No other speaker sounds or looks the same. If your a Klipsch fan this is one of Arkansas's best. If your not, you will be. Get some ear protection and make friendly with the neighbors. These babies will blow you away. Loud, super deep bass. Clear, accurate and clean. Ultra efficient, you don't need much to make these speakers howl. 3/4 inch birch plywood. Heavy, like speakers used to be. How else could something this small sound like a concert hall. Buy them at all cost!
Excerpt: A friend of mine bought a pair of Heresys in the early 80s and I have wanted a pair ever since. The Heresy III fully lives up to my expectations. Coupled with my vintage pioneer amp and Yamaha turntable I now have an awesome vintage system. Dust off your old records, hook up a turntable, connect your Heresys and have a ball.
