I see this a lot but I always saw it opposite since the 15 has a lower crossover point which means the CD needs play lower. At a certain point doesn't that limit output of the CD? Can the CD with a low crossover still exceed output of the 15 can do in the frequencies below it ?

here's a pic of my 1099's. The tower's are 54" tall and i have the waveguide around 39"-40". the center is below my 61" DLP.

I'm trying to imagine a Tempest as a center above my TV. TV is a 62" DLP, so depth isn't an issue at all, but it will be pretty high up. An 88 Special would be more practical, but I don't know how the side-by-side woofers work out is the listening area is near 90 degrees wide.
Again I would say any speaker that's using the SEOS-15 waveguide will give you a larger/wider soundstage over a speaker using the SEOS-12 waveguide.

I'm wondering about this as well. I suspect I'm getting really close to ordering some mains, and I've been holding off waiting on this update. Anxious to see how these turn out.

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

Like the big brother to the same ones used currently in FUSION 8 and FUSION 12 ?

I'm curious to hear about the FUSION 15 and if it sounds as good as the FUSION 12 or different and how the different crossover point effects output and sound quality.

I was leaning towards FUSION 12 but perhaps the 15 with the 15 waveguide is a smarter move for me.

Another question: Is there any other models that would be positioned above this due soon ? ALPHA 12 or ALPHA 15 ?

I hate to PM and bother him. I'll be patient and just wait for the update. I lost a pair of pro audio speakers in a basement flood and I have a claim going... I will replace them with something and I am not sure what yet.

The woofer that best fit the Fusion line was the 15" Deltalite and the design has been completed. There was some thought about using the Kappalite, but we just aren't sure there's a good enough reason to justify the $70 price difference.

The first idea was to use a different Eminence 15" because it's a fairly smooth performer and can dig pretty deep in a small enclosure. It sounds great, but 2 things that kept it from the Fusion line: it's a 4 ohm woofer and the lower cost put it too close to the Fusion-12. Plus I'm not sure how many people would be wanting/needing the Fusion models for full range use versus being used with a subwoofer.
