“Decorator” Klipsch Cornwall

Happy New Year to all. Well, 2024 has led me down the Klipsch Cornwall path. I picked these up in a trade of gear. The tweeters were bad and have been repaired with the K-77 kits from Crites. Next on to the non original Woofers. Currently 15” CTS woofers are in the cabinet. I am unable to find any info on these. Huge square magnets. Everything other than current woofers is original. Now to my question, do I try to go original with K-33 used, or OEM replacements? Upgrade to Eminnence Kappas, or Crites 1526 woofers. Any advice is appreciated. Anyone update Cornwalls with any of the above options? Thanks in advance, Robert

I have some experience with the Eminence Kappa 15c. They are a common 4ohm replacement for Klipsch 15" woofers. The woofer is a pro quality woofer and has a strong bass output. I’m not real familar with the kt-33, but the lower midrange on these maybe a bit less defined that more expensive woofers, but given this project would probably get the job done.

My listening room is long and narrow 25 x12. I am unable to use length to my advantage. Near field listening at its best? These are currently driven with Advent 300 as a preamp to Dynaco ST70. Thank you for your reply

I have zero experience with Klipsch gear, but if you want to go the original driver route I have a lone K-33-E woofer that is yours for the taking (or cost of shipping from Portland, OR to wherever you are). It was, improbably, in a guitar amp I restored a few years ago and appears to be in good shape except for one or two dots of adhesive on the cone which are ostensibly covering up very minor tears.

Hello Forum members. After much back and forth, I replaced non original 15” CTS woofers w/ Parts Express OEM spec woofers. The difference was enormous. The low end returned, and the high end now didn’t over power the music. Thank you for your suggestions.
