Well, I see this thread has moved away from a less expensive Titan to a more expensive option. I'd love to have something like this for my LCR, unforunately, it's beyond my budget. I think a lot of people would be interested in something like I mentioned earlier - a cheaper, less intrusive, full range speaker.
I know I'm probably in the minority here, but isn't that the whole idea behind DIY? The idea is to get more performance than the price would suggest. I'm a member on DIYMOBILEAUDIO, and I know several others here are as well. That site is famous for having people using ultra-budget equipment ( especially speaker drivers ) and getting really good performance from them. I understand that the mobile environment is different than the home, but it seems the idea should work the same regardless.
Sorry for the semi-rant here. I know I'm not nearly as knowledgeable as most on this forum. So, if I stepped out of line, please let me know. Thanks all.
