Good point about the planars. Having narrow band individually will greatly reduce comb filtering for sure. My brother used planars for the big CBT's he built for their church in NC.

I haven't heard the LX521 but I use to own the Orion's. The Orion looks pretty strange too but maybe not quite as much as the 521. If you don't mind going DIY you could make a variation of...

I'm going to answer my own question. The mid bass drivers are 5.75" in diameter and the tweeter is 3.2". I got a used one directly from the manufacturer for $89 with free shipping.

Now I'm going...

No, I said the tweeter amplifier is seeing a full range signal on its input. Full range above 80 Hz in this case since a sub is being used below 80 Hz. The tweeter is seeing only the pass band set...

Yes, that's pretty much what I said. The only real value in bi-amping is in the case of active bi-amping. Passive bi-amping is useless as far as I can tell.

Actively bi-amp'ed speakers pretty much have to be designed that way from the start. They don't have passive crossovers so everything has to be done based on the particular drivers being used in the...

Correction: Full range above 80 Hz.

Passive bi-amp means you're using only the passive crossover built into the speaker. You still send 80 Hz up to the tweeter amplifier. Active bi-amp puts...
