FL/FR Medium-size Bookshelf to Team with 88 Special
Although I have yet to build the 88 Special, I think it looks like a pretty brilliant design idea. Might I interest any of the gallery and certainly the 88 designer to come up with a vertically orientated design to use as an accompanying FL/FR?
Although the other larger Fusion designs are said to be good with the 88, I can't help but be attracted to a design with an 8" woofer/SEOS-15/8" woofer vertical configuration. Or maybe SEOS-15 over two vertical 8" woofers?
Ideally, it would have a slightly smaller footprint than the Fusion-12 Tempest that would retain the high sensitivity and same CD as the 88. Yes, it would be a design that would require sub(s), but the somewhat smaller footprint would also be more friendly to built-in installations.
Very desirable about this vertical configuration would be that the woofers would also have very wide and smooth horizontal dispersion, along with the already awesome SEOS-15. Hopefully, the crossover would remain low like the 88. It seems to me that this would also be a design superior to the single woofer design of the Fusion-10.
