Klipsch Cornwall III Floorstanding Speakers

Cornwall III

Klipsch brings back one of their classiest speakers. The Cornwall, introduced in 1959, is designed to serve as a larger, full-range alternative to the Klipsch Heresy when used as a center channel between two widely spaced Klipschorns. It delivers full-range base response with sensitivity and output approaching the fully horn-loaded models. Klipsch brings back one of their classiest speakers.

Initially introduced in 1959, the Cornwall speaker was designed to serve as a larger, full-range alternative to the Heresy when used as a center channel speaker between two widely spaced Klipschorns. When it was discontinued in 1990, there was an outcry from consumers resulting in a letter-writing campaign and even a petition to bring back this storied loudspeaker. This famed speaker, now dubbed the Cornwall III, is back and better than ever. A three-way design using horn-loaded compression drivers for the midrange and treble and a direct-radiating 15-inch woofer for the low frequencies, the Cornwall delivers the full-range bass response of the Klipschorn® with sensitivity and output approaching the fully horn-loaded models.

I have owned and used so many speakers in my audiophile life. The Cornwalls have the typical big Klipsch sound. Deep bass and an accurate midrange. Highs are also good (better than the older Cornwalls).
I am purchasing these to be my last new speakers(I am in my sixties). Having been a Klipsch fan for years and owning all of the speakers in the Heritage line these fit in very well.
They are not perfect and do not have the detail and imaging on Martin Logan or Magnepan. Not even as accurate as the better B&W speakers. But for bang for the buck they are hard to beat.
