So far, I appear to be the only person with these speakers. And I wonder what that says about them. Probably nothing I imagine, but I found it interesting to note a bunch of posts back that someone said that no one ever mentions Paradigm, when basically, that name sticks out all over the place, along with all the other usual suspects.

Mains: Energy C3's
Rears: Energy CR3's

Still need to buy the center and sub. Center will obviously be Energy. Sub is undecided. And I'm geared towards buying the Outlaw 950/7100 Combo. At the moment I'm using a pair of Rat Shack Optimus speakers being powered by an Onkyo TX-SV 515 Pro receiver. I refuse to hook the Energy's up yet. Not till I get my new pre/pro or w/e.

I'll definetely upgrade the mains when I move out of my NYC studio apt.

Who built your center? Which mid horn is that? Does the shape of the horn color the sound any differently than the horns in the mains?

The reason I ask is that I'm in a very similar situation. My mains are very similar to the Klipschorn and use the same drivers. I'm currently using the Klipsch center, but I think a larger center would sound better next to the larger mains. I also want a vertical speaker to prevent lobing. Do you mind me asking the budget for the center speaker?

Thanks!

I built the center myself. the cabinet is 42"w x 13,5"h x 15"d. Cabinet is made out of 3/4" marine grade oak plywood with complete internal bracing and wired with 12 gauge monster cable. I am using 2-Klipsch KV1089 10" woofers out of a Klipsch RF7, T35 horn tweeter(aka Klipsch K77), and a Klipsch K52 midrange horn with the 90°x60° Tractrix® Horn out of a Klipsch KLF30. Crossover is a 3-way, 2nd order (12dB) crossover with a 3 octave spread between crossover points. I used Metallized polypropylene capacitors in critical midrange and tweeter signal paths. 18 gauge inductors are used to keep DC resistance to a minimum. crossover points are 700/5600. There are 2- 4" flared ports in the rear of the cabinet

The only part I did not due myself was the front motorboard. I had a cabinet shop do the special rabbiting bscause of the shape of the woofer flange. I wanted to make sure everything was completely flush.

The trick is to make sure that the internal cabinet is braced very good, which I have done. I added 2 smaller horizontal braces. Once I install the acoustic foam to the inside this should do it. I would have prefered to use solid oak but the cost is so high and very hard to find in anything over 12"wide. I am not a big fan of MDF. It is discusting to work with and makes a mess. Yes it is pretty dead cabinet

This center sounds excellent. Measurments are 38hz to 17.5Khz 100db 1 watt input.

The off axis sound is exceptional!

Fronts: Vienna Acoustics Weberns
Sub: Hsu STF-1

When the credit card cools down I'll get a 3rd webern for the center channel. Then, after another cooling period, I'll get 2 Bergs for the rears and be done with it. Finally.

Sidenote: Still not sure if I should get the Vienna Acoustics Subson sub...but at twice the price of the stf-1 and the fact that I can't crank my system too loud (live in an apt) I think I'm good to go with the stf-1.
