You must be referring to the two members who said their FV15HP's don't flex like mine after watching those videos? I captured the videos because there just aren't that many out there of the FV15HP in action and I wanted to show just how much throw they have because I think it's pretty cool looking. I also wanted to show how the drivers just stop on the dime. Like I said before, definitely way more noticeable with the silver cones.

Thanks for the kind words!

For sub placement in general or for putting subs flush with the mains?

In this case neither choice has anything to do with sound, it's all about where I can place them and aesthetics/cosmetics. For placement, there's a (the) door where I'd like to place one sub, and there's not enough space on the other side of the room between couch and wall for the other sub (it's a bit narrow). Vexing, as I could really use them there to help compensate a null. My room lost about a third of its volume (and nicely primed dimensions) when we decided to add a bedroom downstairs. The bedroom is/was much enjoyed by my younger son, and undoubtedly provides greater resale value than a larger media room, but I'm still bummed. One of the reasons for getting Rythmiks was the phase adjustment that would make it easy (easier, anyway) to place them where they'd do the most good vs. where they look best.

Brian will eventually benefit as I plan to get a couple more F12's and place toward the rear to help reduce those pesky nulls.

Placing subs flush with the mains, other than for looks, does not make much sense to me. The wavelengths are huge and most towers have woofers at the bottom so reflections are a non-issue (unless the subs are at ear level and causing the tweeters to reflect off them). I do it for looks just because it makes the front line (Maggies and subs) look nicer. Also one less thing to trip over.

My comment on reflections was meant to be general, e.g. don't put a big reflective boundary next to the tweeter at ear level, and not sub-specific. Long week, forgot where I was posting.

I've put in 80+ hours the past few weeks, new chips got back and aren't working quite right, aarrgghhhh... Should drop down to normal insane hours soon. I need some sleep, got a lot to play in the next few weeks and haven't had much practice time. Going to put my system to use this weekend to listen to a couple of versions of "Planets" (playing it in a few weeks and want to see how other principals did it) and watch the last Hobbit movie.

On topic: I lost my link to Toole's paper on multiple sub setups, anybody have it handy?

Thanks - Don

I do want to take another poster to task. Anywhere you have a setup like JT's that is a Man Cave. It doesn't have to be a dedicated space to be a Man Cave just a place where your manlyness can exude all around. His setup definitely does that. As to aesthetics and optimal speaker placement I have to add that rarely do the two coincide. Usually what "looks" the best doesn't sound the best and vicea versa that is just a fact. Now all setups (unless you are talking about high dollar designed as a blank sheet builds) are about compromises and what to each of of is acceptable. Whatever compromise you make either aesthetics or optimal speaker placement as long as the final result is good for the person who enjoys it everyday that is in the end what is truly important.

I have a dedicated space but had to make a lot of compromises when I built it, but who is to say that since I did make some compromises that my enjoyment factor is any less than someone who has spent 100k on their space. That is what makes this such a great hobby or passion. Run what you brung.

Oh and I would have to say a big HELL to the NO for glitter on the speaker cones. Just sayin.

Regards,

RTROSE

What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.
