Some meaningful upgrades, especially the new Tractrix mid-range driver, the heart and soul of any speaker. Unfortunately, the Cornwall is only 38" high thereby causing the mid-range driver to be directed below typical 'ear listening levels'.

You can remedy that by adjusting the rake of the speakers, I did that with my IIIís

That would defeat the primary advantage of Tractrix based horn speakers, controlled directivity. Less side wall, ceiling, and floor reflections is what separates Tractrx horn from round horn and common cone speakers. Reflections cause distortions to the original signal which lessens the quality of the listening experience.

Theoretically that sounds good but the proof is in how it sounds, I experimented with rake on my IIIís and it opened up the soundstage. I had no loss transparency, no loss of macro and micro dynamics, it improved the overall presentation, try it for yourself.

Yes........... new cabinet is 38" in height, likely to accomodate the new mid-horn. The old is 35.3". New is also 2# heavier at 100#.

I'm shopping for new speakers that I can place against the front wall in a new listening space. Would the Cornwall IV work if placed so........... ?

Corn=corner wall=wall They were designed to go in corners or against the wall.

I'd like to hear them but don't have the space for them in my room.

The IV's are the same height as the III's. This is a quote from the designer:
"They are actually the same height. In the old spec sheet, the riser was not taken into account. "

It explains why Adorama discounted the IIIís heavily several months ago.
