Fixed the problem on the second cabinet - it was a bad solder joint on the crossover. I'm surprised anything was coming out of the tweeter at all. Very odd.
I did some measurements but later realized my wife bumped up the bass boost on the receiver. Can't remeasure at the moment. There are a bunch of hills and valleys under 100hz. I think some is from the bass boost and some is from the walls. I'd like to measure outside but i don't think it's ever quiet enough in my area.
DId some listening. They sound very good to me. Vocals in some Beatles tracks were sort of creepy - very natural sounding. I don't often do critical listening. It was kind of nice.
My first impression is that they sound better than my Zaph ZA3.5 towers, but I can't remember the last time i listened to music on those. I''d like to try to setup a side-by-side test.
Funny thing is, as someone pointed out in another thread, with all these DIY projects, i don't really know what to do with all my speakers now
Wanted to use them downstairs but one of our pets chewed the surround on the last pair of open-front speakers i left in that room
Nothing without a grill goes down there from now on.
