Someday, I will own a pair of Cornwalls. I've been lusting after them for a while. 

 

Congrats PhoenixG on your awesome score:beerchug:

Finally, upgrade the crossovers, and hear just how much smoother they can sound.

The upgrades do add up, but the end result will be speakers that will smash most 10,000.00-15,000.00 speakers. As much as I love my xr7, they don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as my cornwalls. But my Cornwalls are heavily upgraded and are also the x-rare vertical driver version too. So not a fair comparison.

But I'm expecting delivery of something later today that are surppose to be just as good if not better. We will see! And oh yeah, the macs are just a magical paring with cornwalls even if they are overkill.biggrin.gif

Sooooooo, if I replace everything except the box and badges, then they become perfect?

HAHAHA! At some point, a "mod" becomes a build. I do believe you though. It makes it into a true "cost no option" design when you add that many mods.

True it can end up becoming a rebuild. I'll put it to you this way. It only takes one mod to get you hooked. Because each one bring vast improvements. The trick is, they sound superb as is, and the notion of getting a vast improvement with one little mod is too tempting to pass up. Just ask my other klipsch lover on here. I got him into the mods as well.

The crites tweeter mod along brings a huge upgrade to the treble. Just try it. It's not expensive, and is just one small mod.biggrin.gif

I made the mistake of listening to a pair of Cornwalls a while back, and now I want a pair :D. But I think my KG 5.2s are good enough to hold me over for a while.

Well the kef 107 arrived damaged:mad:. The ebay seller did a poor job packaging them, which is odd. ups is suppose to be picking them up in the next 24 hours and I'm to receive a full refund once that happens. But good luck to them getting ups to pay a claim on that.

 

My purchase of a pair of 107 is the main reason I wanted the 1280, so no I have all of this power and nothing to do with it.:rolleyes:

They were gorgeous speakers, it's a shame what happened to them.Well, I'm back to the drawing board. now my 1280 have no one to play with. I wanted these speakers sooo bad. Today is my birthday, and these would have made a great gift.

Thanks everyone. I just finished boxing up the 107s sadly. I must say, the build quality is just incredible. I tried to play them to get an idea what they sounded like, but only the mid/tweeter array worked. Put a dmm on the woofers and they all are shot. Now I can only dream of what my restored 1280/107 combo would have sounded like.

Happy Birthday Moody! Sorry to hear about your KEFs. I don't know why some people are so clueless about proper packaging. It isn't all that hard. Just laziness I guess.
