Re: Pi 7 Cornerhorns

not a very informative thread!

what is bad sounding on them? rest of system? placement of speakers? pictures of setup?

perhaps we can help you getting your setup much better if you answer the above questions.

i have pi1, his smallest and cheapest speaker, and that doesn't come close to sounding bad, its really a good speaker, especially when u take pricing into consideration!

i doubt that pi speakers topmodel sounds bad...

best regards

Re: Pi 7 Cornerhorns

They don't image very well and they sound very lo-fi. Coming from a ML CLS system and I would call my old system very accurate and musical (as long as I was dead center). Now everything is wrong. Boomy bass, vague distorted mid range and dead highs.
I have a Yamaha RX-A840 and YPAO makes it sound much better believe it or not! The XO were checked and the build quality of the boxes are second to none...
Playing with the Yammers PEQ now and learning REW.
Keeping my two REL SW out of the system until I make these things sound better.

Re: Pi 7 Cornerhorns

Have you tried moving the speakers around to get a better soundstage?

OOPs... have you moved your listening position to where it is where the 2 channels intersect? I know I have seen in the Klipsch Forums that the Cornerhorns can be difficult to get sounding right... Depending on your room.

Re: Pi 7 Cornerhorns

I loved my ML Sequels, and I really liked the CLSs that a friend had.... Totally different sound compared to my current setup.

Re: Pi 7 Cornerhorns

Trying to figure out how to use the Yamahas PEQ..
I think the REW program makes suggested EQ curves?

Re: Pi 7 Cornerhorns

Even though they are corner speakers... Have you tried moving them out a bit from the wall... Or are they already out a bit from the wall?
