From my perspective, that makes them four-figure speaker wires. Cheaper to just buy Kimber or whatever than spend two hours futzing.

New NHT Classic line to replace Super Audio

Not exactly. The tweeter is different: a 1" dome in the new one and a .75" dome in the Classic.

The "Official" Outlaw 2200 Monoblock Thread

Sigh. Just breathe deeply and say the following three times:

"Test bench conditions are not use conditions."

OR, find a suitable 8 ohm resistor bank and a voltmeter, use a source to set one of...

That amp also doesn't have flat response into a resistive load. I think it's Tripath-based. So basically late 1990s Class D technology.

Is Tannoy still a choice compared with those high-high-end speakers?

You're question is backwards: how many "high high end" speakers are any good at all?

Hey Scott, I'm curious about your overhead speakers. There's a pretty big headroom drop-off from your surrounds to your heights: 8" 3-way to 5.25" 2-way. And obviously a gigantic drop-off from your...

If I can't see how your ring bracing concept applies to a box, drawing software won't help. Perhaps since you seem to have a concept, and know how to use drawing software, you could show us.

I mean a box is not a ring. Your scheme only accounts for four of the six sides. I'm having trouble seeing how it would work in a real box, where all six sides should be connected with bracing.
