I think it's a matter of a lot of factors JPA. One is the designer. I recall reading that the variations from designer to designer could be as great or greater than the differences between the actual parts (like DNA360 to 205)

So something like a FUSION 12 + FUSION 8 Rears + FUSION 8 MTM CENTER work really well together (all done by Jeff Bagby with like style crossover work).

In general the timber differences isn't a huge concern IMO. There was a really good explanation and thread about that in general around here recently I read, saying that essentially there is a million other things to consider and worry about before worry about the TIMBER match of one speaker to another. If remember where I'll dig it up, It was a post from a calibrator or Dennis or Nyal or something like that I remember but I can't remember which thread and person... lol. Too much AVS for me and too much reading, I'm starting to forget more than I know.

EDIT: Looks like someone snuck in just before me ^ Yup. What he said.

Bassment has the FUSION 8 and 12 BTW... if you want a real opinion. He's around here a lot (Jwagstaff) and I'd value his opinion.

Is Jeff doing the new Fusion 15 as well? The website has Matt listed as the designer for the new Fusion 15.

What about off-axis response? I understand you can EQ two speakers to have the same voicing, but if the off-axis response is different between the two, then you can only correct them at one axis. This seems like it could be a problem for a surround, but I don't know for sure.

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

Matt did it and said it's better than the old FUSION 15.

OFF AXIS is mostly a result of the wave guide and tweeter used.

Have these made it into the wild yet? I'm checking the site daily

So are the off-axis response for the various EOS and SEOS speakers similar?

I'd think that a design using the SEOS15 + DNA360 would be the same as another design also using the SEOS15 + DNA360 so yes.

And the old FUSION12 and 15 used the SEOS12, which is why the new 15 has the SEOS15 and got redesigned. So the answer is yes some SEOS15 are out in the wild, but it's still new so not many (yet) compared to the SEOS12.

Eventually I need to round up some finished photos from DIY guys to put on each page. so people can see what the finished speakers can look like. I can also put links to builds and things like that on each page now.
Just me being nit picking . I like to click on the leftcolumn regardless if there is a pop out menu or not. When I do with the Fusionnow there are so many items it is confusing would it be better if when youclicked on the Fusion link in the left column that the next page is only themain group (same as pop out menu) then when you click on an item it will itwill take you to the options like when you click on the pop out menu.
