Still waiting on my CNC wood from eD(subs). It might be a week or 2, hopefully a week. I will post pics and such when finished.

Never had 802 to compare at the same time, but they are a 1" exit and the others are 2" with the BMS a coax so not at all equivalents.

Thanks for the info A9X. I guess I will keep my eye out for a deal on 4590's sometime in the future.

Not yet, I also have purchased M&K S-5000's that were my favorite for a long time. I need to get re-acquainted with them just to see where I am now after 5 years.

On a completely unrelated topic...Why was Penn's thread locked? I didn't see any arguing or any bashing in there at all? I was going to post something about fluffy rabbits and baby squirrels.


Sorry MK I know this has nothing to do with your thread but yours are famous for going way off topic anyway.

I don't mind off topic stuff as you know. I will start a new thread when I build my F-20 and will also include the DR's and M&K's, hell, I will throw in the screen too.

I know why Penn is leaving but it was discussed in a PM and would rather have him say, not me.

Oh, I am not sure, but some were starting to throw jabs at AVS so that could have done it. Who knows. I see you are selling your kits. Anything planned next?

Gah! What the hell is going on around here? Penn leaves, Mal-x confirmed OOP, KW knocked his towers down, MKtheater is going full circle back to his classis MK gear...

So does that mean my massive LLT's will be back in fashion next year?


We need a morale injection here, me thinks. Quad f-20's should do some damage.

I want to hear them again just so I can properly place them in my own ranking order. I will have a JBL, DR's, and the M&K's. I will keep which ever sounds the best and the F-20's should be interesting.

Ahhh, I'm not bashing your move, James. Actually sounds like a good idea as you have made so many changes since you had those. Could be pretty humbling. See, for me, I've long been bored of my speaker system so I'll be more than happy to move them out when the time comes.

Very much look forward to you quad F-20's.

Last Ricci effort I saw was his LMS-Ultra based tapped horn last week. He has a MBM in the works too? Sweet.

He has a thread on it, should be on the 1st or 2nd page.

He also was finishing up his ported 21's.

No, I don't think they could due to BFM's rules or something.

I am personally hoping the M&K's sound the best because they will be the cheapest and smallest. You guys know I am not afraid to sell stuff so I will keep what I prefer the best. I XO at 80hz to my subs so it just has to give me the best cinema experience from 80hz up. Since the 5000's I have owned 888's, SHO-10's, jbl 3622N's, 3731 clones, and the 4675c's. I also auditioned QSC K-10's in my room. I have a whole bunch of notes that I wrote down comparing one speaker to another and using logic to compare the newer speakers to others but not side by side. Maybe the 5000's will blow me away since my room is well treated now since I had them before, who knows.

Very curious to see how the DRs perform, as I have never seen an independent measurement.....

You gonna build them yourself?

MBM's? No...I don't really believe in that. If either your mains, or your subs, or both together can't do what you need then one or both of them are your problem, but that is a whole other thread.

Yeah I am replacing the DTS10's with the LMS horns. Plus I have another set of >25hz pa type horns coming next that may replace the ported 21's.

I am having an authorized dealer build me 2 of them and let me try them and if I like them I will build 3-5 more for my 7.0 speakers. If I don't like them I can return them. So, yes, I will build them if I like them but before I do I needed to hear them first. I have high expectations for these.

I meant the 25hz and up horns. Sorry about that. Are you using your dts-10 clone box for the LMS drivers or are you using a new design? They were very impressive with your tests!!

No dts-10 clones here. I own 2 dts-10 kits. I designed the Gjallerhorn to replace them. It is a completely different driver/cabinet/fold/tune. The pro bin TH's I designed are based on the B&C 21's. The cabinet shop hasn't started on them yet though. Gotta get the funds together.
