Now this one is a departure from the other versions of the Cornscala. This is a two-way. I had not really considered doing a two-way until recently when I became aware of the Faital Pro HF140 Driver. Drivers that can do a range off 400hz to near 20khz without a large amount of equalization are hard to find and the ones that can do that are very expensive...,that is, until the Faital Pro HF140 driver came along.
So, with a pair of these drivers being $550.00 and not having to have a tweeter, and being able to use a relatively simple passive crossover, this speaker becomes practical. The only other driver that I thought could do this before the Faital driver was the TAD 4002 at around $2500.00 per pair!!!
With testing here in our shop, we decided on 500hz for the crossover point. We get a frequency response conforming to about plus or minus 5db all the way up to around 20khz.
The following components are used.
Pair of Faital Pro HF140 Drivers $550.00
Pair of Faital Pro LTH142 Tractrix) horns $130.00
Pair of midrange horn/driver support brackets and pair of 1.4 inch gaskets $20.00
Pair of CW1526CF woofers $275.00
Pair of CS500 Cornscala Crossovers $250.00
Total for internal parts $1225.00 with the crossovers.

Pair of Style D Motorboards $210.00
Pair of Style D Grill Frames (cut from 3/16 hardboard) $60.00
Pair of complete (but unfinished and unassembled) cabinets $470.00. This would include the 2 motorboards, 2 grill frames and two cabinets.
For us to assemble the cabinets $75.00
We have Klipsch Heritage #7 Black grill fabric for $40.00 per yard (36 X 72 inches) plus $12.00 for shipping. We are not yet at the point we can install the fabric on the grill frame.
We cut the motorboards from Russian Birch. This is the same material from the same supplier Klipsch is using now for their birch cabinets.

PRICE COMPLETELY ASSEMBLED AND TESTED $1770.00
This would include both of the pair assembled with grill frames and picked up here at our shop. Shipping to you would be additional. We will place them on a pallet with padding and a plastic wrap coating for shipping. Weight is somewhere around 300 pounds ready to ship. If you have a commercial address for us to ship to, the shipping will be a lot less than shipping to a residence. We have also many times shipped to a FedEx Freight center near the customer for the customer to pick up there.
