Nice blank Harvey! How are the ribbon tweeters working? And the ultra max 18s did you go sealed or ported what amp, room correction?

They are fantastic speakers. The only reason why I haven't gone DIY is because of the available tower kits featuring dome and AMT/Ribbon tweeters. Im an avid music listener, and theres just some things that ribbons have that the compressions don't. Now for movies and demanding levels, compressions for sure. But thats also one of the benefits of having a small room is I don't need as high sensitive speakers, or as much power.

Everything you see (subwoofer wise) is sealed. They are currently running on 2 iNuke 6000DSPs and will get a 3rd when the UM-18s come back in stock.

Current no room correction at all.

The towers with the ribbons are a kit? The tweeter looks similar to the Emotiva. What is the kit name looks awesome.

Those towers are Martin Logan Motion 60s, not a "kit" build. That tweeter is an AMT (Air Motion Transformer) - a folded ribbon, and not a true ribbon/RAAL tweeter that you would see in a Chane, Sierra 2, Philharmonic, Salk, or HTD speaker.

That's what I meant. In a down-firing sub the port will most likely end right above the driver, in a front-firing sub there may be a higher chance of the objects falling on the bottom of the enclosure and not on the driver. But don't take it too seriously, I was only trying to make a joke, anyway...

Lol most front firing have ports below drivers or even down firing so only varmints could get to it and they have lol like what they sold in the 70s habitrail for hamsters. Perfect port size lol. Another topic who didn't have the urge to poke a tweeter or dust cap when you were young? I guess that is where my fascination with audio started and bike riding lol

That is a rabbit hole which will generate more questions before you get valid answers. This isn't the right thread for that. Please start a new thread in this forum section labeled "Speakers" and you'll be better off.

This thread is chiefly about what speakers you have, really not for what should you get.

Wow-forgot about this post. Funny to revisit things four years later. Gone are the songtowers, selah audio center, hsu sub and denon AVR. I decided to do Atmos. Have a 5.0.4 right now, but the sub and rear surrounds are on the way.

- funk audio L/C/R
- salk song surrounds (surrounds)
- Boston acoustic in walls (Atmos)
- funk sub & rear surrounds (on the way)
- Anthem MRX 1120

I'm not shopping. I already own KEF R500/R200c/R100 in a 5.1 setup. I don't have to dream about LS50's, I could own them if I really wanted to. I'm very happy with what I have, thank you.
