Thanks!

I watched a few movies on it today and am thoroughly impressed. They sound so much better than the Polk monitor 30s that they replaced. For some reason YPAO set the crossover at 140Hz, I thought that sounded a little high. It also set all my speakers except the rear surround as large, I changed them all to small but I found it odd that the rears were not set large since they are the same as the side surrounds.

I am getting a Behringer USB audio interface tomorrow and plan to run REW somethime this week to get some readings. I know my mains -3 is around 35Hz, not sure about the center though it should be good well below 140Hz. Maybe REW will give me some answers.

I'm seriously thinking about getting three more for the front. Maybe by the time they come back in stock I will have enough money.

Those drivers look so blue in pictures!

Thankfully they don't look like that in person. I colored mine in with a sharpie though.

I now have 4 volt 8's as surrounds in slanted boxes and 3 more as LCR's in a different system.

Yeah, they don't look as blue in person, especially when the lights are dim. I still plan on making some grills this weekend to cover them up though. Hopefully the grills will look right, they probably would have looked better if the baffle would have been flat instead of rounded. I'm trying to figure a good way to match them up and not look too out of place.

wow, they sound that good as mains huh? they're nice and compact for sure... I'd be tempted to hang them as bedroom mains as I doubt they would beat my Cheap Thrill mains

Working on this for myself but thought I'd share. I'm going to make three for LCR fronts Ported looks the way to go for an 80hz XO.

Edit: just noticed that port resonance... More work needed on port size BRB
Edit2: that's better

Mine are also replacing the Monitor 30's that I had for surrounds. Until I can build my 10-99 fronts, my Volt 10's have been my mains for several months now. They do a great job and I cant wait to hear how they do as surrounds!
