Klipsch Cornwall III 70th Anniversary Edition (PIECE):
ON DEMO AT THE SHOP - In celebration of the 70th anniversary of Klipsch, exclusive limited edition Cornwall speakers are being manufactured in exotic Australian Walnut wood veneer. Australian Walnut (also known as Queensland Walnut) is grown in the coastal tablelands of North Queensland, Australia. The species varies in color, but is usually a pale golden hue highly contrasted with darker streaks of chocolate brown, grey, black, or even pink. Australian Walnut grain is moderately close and even and sometimes wavy, resulting in a wide variety of figure effects. In other words, every pair of speakers is visually one-of-a-kind.
Like all Klipsch Heritage speakers, the Cornwall III is a lifetime investment. Built to the strictest Klipsch standards, these speakers offer years of gratifying performance. Remember great sound? We do, too. The Klipsch Cornwall III enclosure is still made in the USA, by proud craftsmen in Hope, Arkansas. Just like Paul W. Klipsch (PWK) intended.
The 70th anniversary Cornwall is limited to a production run of only 70 pairs of speakers. Each speaker features a small plaque identifying its numbered sequence in the series and is hand-signed by the craftsman.
First introduced in 1959, the Cornwall III is a three-way design using horn-loaded compression drivers for the midrange and tweeter and a direct-radiating 15-inch woofer for the low frequencies. The Cornwall III is an excellent combination of wide frequency response, low distortion, and high power output. Within the Heritage series, only the legendary Klipschorn® offers more extended bass response.
NEW NAMEPLATE AND GRILLE
Each pair of Cornwalls feature vintage “script” style nameplates mounted to a beautiful silver luster grille cloth.
A matte-black riser base compliments the Cornwall’s Australian Walnut wood veneer enclosure.
BOOK-MATCHED WOOD VENEER
Klipsch only uses book-matched wood veneers for the Heritage series. The veneer leaves are kept in order as they are delicately sliced from the timber and precisely arranged to provide a mirror image at the splice joint — like turning the pages of a book. This gives each speaker a more aesthetically appealing and consistent appearance that is treasured more than any other cut of wood veneer.
Each pair of Heritage Series loudspeakers is grain-matched using wood veneer panels that come from the same timber. Each cabinet is carefully matched so that each speaker in the pair is practically indistinguishable from the other. The speakers move seamlessly together through the factory. Each finished product is inspected and labeled with sequential serial numbers, ensuring that the Heritage series speakers leave the factory as a meticulously crafted set.
