Elusive 1099 Suggestion
I've been lurking around looking for a project for a 5.1 HT setup. My original plan was to go with B&W CT 7.3 for the front but at $1500, I have a feeling I can DIY something that competes at a fraction of the price. I want something with clear vocals and something that I can use in a HT, strictly for movies (I have a nice setup for music already).
I've heard a lot of good things about elusive 1099 speakers, mainly following some notable builds here. The build looks fun, and the excitement of building something is satisfying. What can people who have experience tell me about this speaker and how does it compare with speakers in the $1,000 range? Is it something I can even compare it with? Will this be good enough for HT? Obviously I can't go to the store at test it out, but seeing that these speakers sell out fast, I presume it is very good for the money.
If not the 1099, what else can you recommend for HT mains?
