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'.

It explains why Adorama discounted the III’s heavily several months ago.

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........... ?

Heard the new Cornwalls at RMAF, they sounded very good: balanced, and fast articulate bass. They were in the corners of the room, so I think close to a wall would be ok.

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. "

That seems reasonable seeing that the III and earlier models had space between the mid-horn & woofer that is taken by the Tractrix horn in the IV. Wonder why they would bother to change the way that they present the measurements? Perhaps they got some feed back from someone who tried to fit a pair into a 36" high space and did not want that to happen again.

My size issue with Cornwall is the width. They will just barely fit into my listening room arrangement. I tried a pair of Cornscala D and could only adjust toe and distance from front wall. I felt I needed more placement flexibility to get them sounding their best. I bet tractrix horn will improve the Cornwalls as well as the other changes.
