klipsch cornwall iv upgraded crossovers

I own a pair of cornwalls, amazing speakers they are paired with MC452 power  and a MC 70 tube pre.I play cds only on a yamaha C2100. My question is I hear people talking about upgrades to the crossovers on the corns  and softening the horns with  sound tape . Do any of those changes work,one or the other and do they make it worthwhile. Would like input from anyone who has tried the upgrades and who they used


larryi, hearing the inside of the horn is a different matter entirely than what I am talking about. My favorite speakers are horns, but a too large of a horn, based on my listening position, will often lead to " hearing inside the horn ", which is another characteristic I am sensitive to. I cannot get used to it....that echo you speak of. Listen, I am not questioning your listening capability, nor your enjoyment. I prefer a " dead " material for a horn ( or I will deaden it ), and I truly prefer a horn that gets me further away from hearing that inside of a horn sound. Always, and my best, MrD.


I generally agree with you on horn coloration.  I was just pointing out some examples which don’t, in my opinion, fit the pattern.  While I would not pick the 16A as my horn, even if I had a room big enough, hearing it was an interesting experience.  
The big problem with currently available horn systems is the compression driver.  I don’t know of many that I like, as compared to vintage drivers, that are not crazy expensive.  I am not saying that modern horn/compression driver combinations are not good sounding, I just don’t find them as good as some 1930-70 drivers.  I particularly like Western Electric, YL, and IPC drivers from the past.

I feel like a little kid again playing that game. Remember you whisper into the person next to you after someone tells you something and boom it morphs into something else . What happen to Cornwell IV's crossovers ? I'm happy to see that a post from a year ago, has finally caught on. Thanks 

I bought Forte iv's instead of Cornwall iv's, because, to my ears, the Forte's had better bass. 

So... does anybody know of anybody that can upgrade Forte iv crossovers or  recommend what capacitors, etc. to use in an upgrade?


What about dampening the woofer baskets?  Think that would help smooth out the sound a little?  I know a lot of people have done the mid and tweeter.
