I understand that that's the goal; I'm interested in why you think it's possible to achieve it.

Measurements look good?

Nathan, is it possible to use one of them as a CC and lie them down horitontally, or will that muck up the response?

Also, what size room are these recco'd for, and you mention a sealed vs ported option. Are you going to make them ported, and offer some sort of plug and way to adjust the x-over if needed to seal them? Or will it be either or (i.e., you'll just close up the box)? Probably a dumb question, and I'm guessing I'd want sealed given my multiple sealed sub setup.

Too bad you guys are out West, would love to compare them to my Sig S2s.

Not sure what you mean by "achieve". No I don't think it can be eliminated, the goal is to "reduce"

PBC, we may at some point do a center, with the tweeter vertical, midbass on either side. What we are doing first is an MT with a smaller/similar tweeter and the same 8" midbass. I would not recommend them for under 8' to LP, for that the new MT would be better, and still be capable if high output. We would build them either rear ported (as tested) or sealed if someone likes. Depending on where you plan to cross over ported or sealed would make very little or no difference.

Main LP would be about 13/14 feet from the speakers, though one couch would be 5 to 10 feet. I'm currently running dual AV15H dual opposed sealed subs. But would definitely need a center as I'm not a 2 channel guy.

The MT would be a great match as a center with the MTM's for L/R.

You don't understand this?

Maybe you're not doing what I assumed, which is to put in a bump in the response at some assumed freq, which if in the event it's different, will give you a bump there as well as the notch.

That is right, not doing that.

Nathan, if I may ask, is the broad midrange dip just part of your voicing preferences, or is there something I'm missing?
