Another consideration with 8" drivers is listening volume. A pair of 8's may actually go almost as low as a 12, just not to the same SPL. Or, perhaps the dual 8's actually will play as loudly and...

The use of matched subs refers to sealed versus ported rather than to a mixing of models within either group. F25's and F15HP's, both being sealed, will work fine together.

For a lot of people (maybe most), the higher output above tuning makes the choice of a ported sub over a sealed the preferred choice. Those who use the sub(s) for both music and home theatre and/or...

If the FV15HP is as close to the F15HP as is likely, and you want ultimate flexibility for both music and theater, the FV seems like the way to go. They both share all of the same damping, phase,...

That's a great attitude! For your room I would try and find a pair of KEF LS50's to hear. I listened to them side-by-side with a pair of 1.7's last November up in Portland Oregon, and they held their...

If you're going to be in this house for a while, with this room for your system, I don't think Maggies (or any dipole) are the best choice of loudspeaker. Not only is there not enough room to move...

The one brand I would stay clear of if buying used is Adcom. The GFA555 (200W/ch) would seem ideal for Maggies (it's a high-current design), but is a notorious speaker destroyer. Its power supply...

One speaker you should try to hear are the Vandersteen 2's. They retail for about the same as a pair of 1.7's, I believe, and have a similar balance as well, but with the addition of ample bass. A...
