musicality vs. dialogue abilities of DIY speakers
I keep looking at DIY designs like the Fusion Tempest 12 but since I can't hear the things in person, playing music through them concerns me. Why? Because the only thing I've ever heard with anything like a horn with music playing through them in a home setup is the Best Buy version of Klipsch. Those sound like ass with music. They have some ok midwoofers, but then there's this screaming harsh metallic tweeter sitting on top of them.
Likewise, I am halfway looking at things like the Denham MTM, which should sound great with music. Even thought about ditching DIY and going with some SVS's. What about with dialogue though? I have some similar Wharfedales and they sound like ass with dialogue, big muddy lower midrange and not very good upper midrange, plus you have to turn it up too loud and power them pretty hard to make everything out, it lacks detail with soft nuances which is a recurring complaint with SVS. But, blaring music sounds pretty good.
So, are these concerns legit or am I worrying too much? What would be a good choice for both music and dialogue if so? I want dialogue to be as clear as if somebody is sitting in the same room, I want a super wide sound stage with no tweeter hot or dead spots, I want strong and tight midbass for kick drums, I want the slightest whisper in a movie to be picked up, and I want huge sound without a screaming tweeter that is struggling to keep up, I want the ability to run 5-7 similar sounding speakers, and most of all I want the upper range to be smooth as silk, appearing that the tweeter and woofer blends in perfectly and all sound appears to come from one source and not like the cheaper Klipsch. Basically I want to listen to Rodrigo y Gabriela and think they are sitting 10 feet away. What speaker am I describing, or am I chasing a unicorn?
