Wow how the time flies. Six years gone in a flash. Anyway, here is an updated picture of what my main system looks like now.

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

Here are some replica Klipsch Cornwall III's I just built from scratch. The cabinets are Baltic birch veneered in waterfall bubinga.

Re: Wardsweb - Feed the passion, live the dream

Nice! I believe I seen those and commented on the Klipsch forum already but beautiful work!

I've been collecting parts for a build myself, want to build a more tower like speaker, a stretched Chorus 1 with rear firing ports but I cannot for the life of me find the k-48 Chorus woofers, I even spoke with Klipsch parts this morning and they got nothing.

From what I've been able to tell the Cornwall woofers require a 6.5 cu ft cabinet where the Chorus woofers only require 4.5 cu ft. Having owned and loved the Chorus bass already and in an effort to keep the cabinets as small as possible would really like hold out for the k-48's.

Anyway sorry for rambling.. again, beautiful work, I can only hope my build comes out half as good!
