What settings are you using? Looks like it's smoothed a bit and boosted all around.

Try experimenting with different Q values for the filters as well. Looking solid though man. Do you have a sweep with 5db jumps between intervals?

By the way Sibuna, great build and beautiful speakers. I have a quick question and was wondering if you could help me out. I have been reading a lot about the Tempest and Sentinel builds. I currently have the Klipsch KL-650 THX speakers for my front left, center and right speakers and was wondering how the Tempest or Sentinels would compare with the Klipsch THX speakers. I like the Klipsch but I feel I can get a little more dynamics, clarity out of either the Tempest or Sentinels for two channel and blu rays.

My listening is about 50% home theater and 50% music and I currently run a SVS SB13 Ultra dual subs. My movie preference is action and music preference is souther rock, folk, and country with a little hard rock as well. I'm a big fan of bands like Heart, Bruce Springsteen, Elton, Mumford & Sons, Gordon Lightfoot, Cat Stevens and Harry Chapin so as you can see quite a mix.

Thanks for any input.

Ted

so small update on this, Ive added another sub i took Popalocks Dual opposed Si 15 (SubM Clone) off his hands and put it squarely behind my couch. we conveniently now doubles as a massage chair when watching movies biggrin.gif

powering it with a Ep4K

I also got a new TV which might have been overkill

thanks. I really want to build a center channel but i only really have like 6 inches of height to work with in this current space, sounds pretty awesome without one but it can only sound better with one

about the EPs i have both of them running through that Panamax and ive never made it switch off, which at least IMO is somewhat impressive. actually EVERYTHING is running through it. now that i think of it

I'm still playing BF3 until the PS4 drops. Looking forward to those sights and sounds.

That's a lot of woofage in that small space. Nice graphs and response.

Amazing thread. I haven't been on AVS in a few years and really wanting to upgrade my system again with a set of these.

I guess my main question is what center channel would even work with the Fusion 10 that was horizontal and not vertical? The other question is the lady friend is a-ok with big-ish cabs, but they still have to look good. Anyone know of these speakers with a grill?

Thanks!

the Fusion 8 center should work and it comes in a horizontal config i simply dont have room for it. also i live alone so i get away with whatever

you can make your own grills if you want, i didnt care to, i just did the sbs to protect them from my cats which ignore them anyway

Those parts don't come in the kit right ?

You bought those separate ?

Home Depot has some, but you should call ahead to make sure. Mine only had 2x8's and 2x16's. No 2x2's.

FWIW speaking as a first-timer at DIY or Assemble it Yourself, I'd have been happy to have paid a few dollars more for barrier terminals and even some good color coded wiring and connections for speaker internals.

Not a big deal once I knew what I needed, but as a first timer that was a surprise. Radio Shack didn't even have the right barrier terminals.

Probably handled by linking to suggested parts on PE like with the binding posts?
