I was comparing the specs of the raw compact drivers - not with crossover's applied to them.

Full range can definitely work but it's more of a balancing act.
i would deff use subs with them...no doubt about that just thought from imax point of view cause all there speakers in the real imax theaters are full range

they're run full range, that doesn't mean they DO full range. There's just no crossover applied.

Full range means the speaker has to act like a sub, or at least 10dB lower: 105dB ref level at 20Hz is the sort of thing 12" woofers and 400w and a big box are used for. Sure looks like a sub.

So I say if you want each channel to act like a sub, be prepared to spend 2x on drivers, wood, more complicated crossover, and buy more external amps.

This is how it will finally play out.




I've placed them on my former surrounds to lift them a little off the front stage floor.
The CD is a little over ear height when I'm sitting and they sound AWESOME!
I've also raised my screen by approx. 8" and so I raised my center by that same amount too and it made a pretty decent difference in my center channel sound.
I had a major dip in the 100-200HZ region which helped tremendously.

I am now experimenting how to finish the front.
I am now considering covering all the front wall with insulation and building a screen of Spandex (white) for my screen.
All fun so I'll see what it gives.
What subs are those? Nice build

@Fatshaft do you notice any difference having the 1099's flipped the other way like that?

Not really except when I'm fully reclined then yes cause in the reclined position the cd is more than 18" above my ears.
Also when watching movies I can't really tell the difference that much.

I ONLY recline my seat when watching movies...I never recline the seat when listening to music.

I've done so many tests (several 1000's) with a mic and REW that what I've learned is not to take measurement to seriously.
It amazes me how much moving the mic one inch (left, right up or down) affects the higher frequencies so much!
So for that reason I rely more on my ears.

Measurements for low Frequencies I do rely on measurements as that stays VERY consistent whether moving the mic an inch (left, right up or down)
