I'll tell you what, I consider myself extremely fortunate. I know a lot of folks ended up losing money to these guys as they went out. Before getting much more diy capable, I had a very large deposit with them on a fully custom 7 channel setup...thousands....and it was tough, but I got every cent back. I think there are a bunch of folks running there stuff now who got a decent value and enjoy what they have, so enjoy away. I would not buy something that couldn't be repaired/sourced/replaced etc. I know that sounds funny based on the amount of diy stuff I have, but I buy enough backups of drivers, etc, JIC. The thought of having something become useless based on inability to source a single part scares the crap out of me.

Are there any recs on what type of tweeter to get to replace a dying one in the a6-6t6 tower? Would the same tweeter work as a replacement for the a6mtm center?

For eD6c, what adjustable mounts do you recommend and what locations on the back are safe to drill? I'm going to try a few on the ceiling for Atmos.

Do you already have them? I don't think they would be ideal for ceiling speakers since there dispersion pattern is narrow. I'm using them for my 4 surrounds and I want to eventually upgrade to something with wider coverage.

If you have them already though I can show you where I drilled mine.

Yup...I've got 11 of them so have to put them to good use. I had 5 from before, but then my BIL and sis wanted to move to in-walls, so I picked up their 6 I had originally put in as surrounds and installed in-walls for them recently... The eD6c dispersion is supposed to be 90°x90° per the specs I had saved from the good'ol days...hope it was accurate. I'm going to play around with angling them to get in the general Atmos recommended setup, but I'm not 100% on committing to the format either, so the final placement will change...being that DTS will also be releasing their own version of '3D' surround this year and they do have more leverage with majority of BD releases are usually carrying DTS audio tracks over Dolby.

My plan is to put 2 as Back Surrounds and 6 on the ceiling. Already using 2 for Heights. The S8's are going to continue Wide and Side Surround duties for now...That Wide channel is doing a great job in filling in between the LR and Sides in my room...really recommend this now for any room 15' or wider.

Btw, I'm running 3 of the eD6c as LCR right now...and man these sound very good...not as 'big' as the 212s, but paired with some great subs, these will rock most HTs...really lucky to still have these speakers...I'm going to ask Jonathan to ship me his switcheroo-panel nonetheless for the sake of R&D.

Can you post a pic showing the back of yours?

Here's some pretty old pictures, let me know if you want more up close. I flipped them upside down as you can see.









Hmm, that surprises me that they are 90x90. I took a pair over to Jonathan's to compare with his Mackie's and I thought they sounded very narrow in comparison. Also, I put them up front once and didn't like what I heard but it could have all been placebo!!

You are giving me hope that I should cross off surrounds from my upgrade list!!!

That mount looks really nice and compact...does it adjust and lock with a hex key? What's the make/model of the mounts?

I noticed a difference when I plugged them in, but I played with the crossover and have them at 150Hz right now...talk about mid bass ..If someone was to walk in, they wouldn't know the 212's weren't on right away...until you switch them back and then you can def tell the diff...The 'wall' of sound is not there...just like a 'band' of sound...and that heightened clarity of the 212's is lacking, but still clear as better horns should be...The volume also has to pushed to get them to as loud as the 212's would be 10db sooner. I have them toe'd in as much as the 212s and I have a nice sweet spot in stereo as my son is watching Sesame Street songs!

Definitely keep yours and save the cash...these are great for surrounds and spending any more is really not necessary. They match up with the JTRs really well.

Here you go. Wow, they were pricey when I bought them at 39, now they are 44. Still I really like them and like you see in the pics you can angle them or turn them how you like before tightening.

Oh, and yes a hex key tightens them. They are rated for 40 pounds but seem like they could hold more.

GAHH...that price...for each?!...Yuck man...Wish that price was for a pair...but the weight support seems to justify compared to others out there...but I need to hang 8...350...hmmm...

That is a lot, there has to be a better/cheaper option out there.

Well, add me to the list.

Last summer I picked up a few of the new eD Cinema Series 6 MTM cabinets and finally got around to building the crossovers and finishing them out this week (no small thanks to Chris Seymour for assistance building the crossovers).

I also just picked up four slant surround 6 cabinets to match that I will eventually finish up. I'm really in no rush on those, though. My room isn't big enough to use them for surrounds.

Does anyone know if it's possible to get replacement drivers? I assume not, it just stinks because I would have thought eD would have a warehouse full of them after they closed.

Need drivers for my A6-6T6

I like turtles.

I'm not going to claim to be an expert as I was pretty late to the game, but the way I interpreted all their communication at the end was that they had lots of boxes and no electronics or drivers to put in them.

The craigslist market around Iowa (where they were based) still shows a lot of cabinets available (that's what I bought).

I loaded mine with Faital Pro drivers from parts-express.com. The 6FE200 drivers sound great.
