Havent seen any Cornscalas builds for a while. and i have never seen any two ways so here is the pair i just finished. these are with all parts from Bob Crites including the crossovers.

the horns seemed kinda thin so i wanted to insulate them a bit. Got this idea here on the forums and it works great. That Gorilla tape is very thick. much thicker than your standard duct tape, but you can still rip it by hand. i applied it in 6-8" strips.

the horn driver is heavy and needs a support bracket. this is the brace a made for the support bracket. it also serves as internal bracing.

im really happy with how these turned out. they sound awesome with PLENTY of bass. I've had "tower" speakers that claimed to get down into the ~35Hz region before but these get there with major output. I have one more CS-1T to put together and i will have my setup done.

Awesome build! I am going to be building a trio of similar Klipsch based speakers that are 3 ways using B&C DE10TN 's for the tweeters with their stock horn, along with B&C DE85TN's for the mids along with the Eliptrack horns and quad Dayton Pro-10's for the LF.

But,

I am debating on doing a 2 way with a Radian 950PB for the mid-high frequencies, along with duel TC Sounds Epic 12's in each cabinet. Not sure on which horn I could possibly use with the Radian.

Edit: this post of mine was old, I have learned so much lately and now have several different directions that I want to go. I might consider building a pair of Corn-Scala's to try and compare to the Seos-12's that I am building, then which ever one I like the most, will be the one that stays. I have always been intrigued by the Corn-Scala designs.

i have been listening to these without any sound deadening material for a while and i decided i wanted to add some. i ordered some eggcrate type stuff from PE and some spray adhesive. the whole process was pretty easy after disassembling the speakers.

Some of the pics did not come out good. sorry. Heres another one of the horn with the driver attached.

Heres another one showing the bolts that hold the bracket for the compression driver to the cabinet brace. This whole speaker is built like a tank!!

What horns and CD did you end up going with? Which woofers are those? The CW1526's?

i thought so, being a fellow AK'er and all. yeah, most of the ones you see are three way.


Marty, these use the Faital Pro HF140 driver and the Faital Pro LTH142 Tractrix horn

I see u have 2 way horn. How does this compare to the la scala midrange and tweeter setup. U still got full midrange and crispy highs. Id be worried because its not the original 3 way setup?

I actually prefer these to the Lascalas. More balanced detail. Just a more natural sounding speaker. The midrange is smoother and the highs are as crisp as the material makes them. Bob Crites also says he thinks these sound as good if not better than the three ways.
