The Sentinel's are animals.
I wasn't expecting a full on demo session upstairs with them, but I wasn't complaining at all!
Andrew dis-engaged the subs and let them rip. I remember him mentioning how capable they are when running full range, but honestly when I heard them at his April 2013 Speaker GTG I was left a bit wanting. Yes, they sounded good back then, but this time they were just a different animal. At under $500 shipped
I can't think of anything that can touch them for the price point. Running full range in a relatively large room, I could see a lot of people not really having the need for much more in the bass department either.
Andrew, do you think the Sent's could have possibly benefited from more power than the XLS was dishing out? I tried to find the bench test for the XLS2K, but it's OEM spec'd at 650wpc @ 4ohm.
Man, in hindsight it would have been the perfect opportunity to throw in Nathan's amp switcher in the mix to compare your XLS2K vs the EP4K.
Hummm, I might see if I can try that between my AVR and my Clone before I have to give it back to Nathan.
I hate this hobby...
