it has been found that there is an error in the crossover for these. easy fix. just flip the compression driver leads. here are some comments i have made since doing this:
im listening to them now. i have not had a chance to turn them up too high, but what i am hearing is pretty awesome. i will put them through their paces Friday.
i had a pair of La Scalas that i sold to fund a pair of Cornscalas because i wanted a pair of speakers that i could run pure two channel and the La Scalas just did not have enough bass. The Cornscalas had plenty of bass but i never grew to like the woofer/compression driver mix. it always sounded disconnected, like the cross over was too low. They had their moments of greatness, but it was few and far between. i missed my La Scalas
I have been listening to these full range, no sub, since thats how they will be at least for a while in our new house. They are totally capable for full range. They wont blow your hair back, but for music they are more than fine.
I dont miss the La Scalas anymore. These speakers are just so clear. so balanced. The La Scalas had their flaws. the mid-horn being the biggest as it gets wonky sometimes and of course they are a very big box for only going down to 60Hz, but they have such dynamic capability, it makes up for it.
The TDM/SEOS have everything as far as im concerned. they are perfect. if the TDX/SEOS speakers can keep this detail and have deeper bass, they must be amazing.
i dont regret not using the TDX however, because i still feel that if you want that much bass, a separate sub is more ideal.
