Haven't heard of it, but it sounds interesting.

WAF might end up being a critical factor, as these speakers may end up being a gift for my dad. My mother has historically been extremely critical of the looks of any audio gear in her living room.

They are moving to Kamloops (from Ontario) in the spring. Perhaps I should convince my dad to select a house with a man cave.

Cornu is French for 'shaped like a horn' A spiral version can be seen here, starting at post 45. Never heard anything like it. My version starts at post 101.

The Cornu looks great (anything could be done to dress up the "canvas" to match decor), seems extremely fun to build, and if it sounds as good as the descriptions it seems like a great project!

Mine are disassembled at the moment, whilst I make 'em pretty. First time in a while that I build something and put a finish on - if that tells you anything.

I'd need to figure out exact cabinet dimensions, etc. for EL70 drivers, without having to read MJK's mind-boggling stuff. Is there a simpler way of figuring this out?

(Perhaps the question is better asked in that thread)

I noticed that. Great guy. He even mentioned the EL70s as being a good candidate driver in an earlier post. I'll have to ask him what he thinks.

I find the highs from an tricked out pair of EL70's a bit recessed in the FH III cabinet so I can only imagine what it would be like in the Cornucopya.

Not sure this is what I would want, to be honest. Dave's comments in the Cornu thread indicate that the bass extension of EL70s in Cornu would be too much, and he recommends CHR-70s instead (as they are hotter and have less bass...)

What about an Alpair 7.3? Is there something in the specs that makes it not suitable for the Cornucopya?
