...my Klipsch Cornwalls literally blow away the Altec A-7-500-8's!!!!!
Some of you guys said that the Altecs are one of the best speakers of all time. No way.
I wasn't able to A/B the klipsch directly against the Altecs. But, I just removed the A-7's (they're sold) and replaced them with my beloved Klipsch Cornwalls.
I made the swap quickly so I could get a feel for the Klipsch against the Altecs.
The Altecs are ALL MIDRANGE!!!!!!!! They do that spectacularly well but they flounder when it comes to highs and even worse with the lows ...Plus, the A-7's footprint is ludicris for a home speaker. Not to mention they are ugly as sin! Grey boxes with an ugly horn bolted on top? No thank you!!!
Ahhhhhh, Welcome back my lovely Klipsch.
