I'm relatively new to the site and I am curious as to who might have experience with the Excite X-12 speakers. What do you think about them and what have you used to amplify them with?
I ask as I am in the process of awaiting a used pair of the X-12 speakers. When they arrive my plan is to use them with an older Accuphase CD player and a Musical Fidelity A3.5 integrated amplifier. I do have the option of pre-amping out to a McCormack DNA-1 for the power amplification if desired. The X-12's will be mated with an R.E.L. Storm III subwoofer for the bottom end. The only iffy thing is the room which is 'big enough' (17' x 22' w/ceiling 8' front sloping to 12' rear) at about 3700 cubic feet with two good sized openings to other areas. I don't intend to blast it but... (and this is a temporary situation)
I bought the X-12's unheard based on my experience over the last 3-1/2 years with a pair of Sapphires that serve as my main speakers in Colorado Springs. Those, eventually, should be inhabiting the room the X-12s will be in (but I will have to retire and move first). The Sapphires run with an R.E.L. Britannia B1 sub crossed at about 28Hz and are powered by a (laugh if you must) Wyred 4 Sound STI-1000 integrated amp (which is far better than the McCormack was).
Anyhow, thanks for any thoughts or opinions any of you may have. I look forward to dropping in to this site in the future.
