That's a great question of what's the issue(s) to be solved. It seems obvious at first, and the solutions seem obvious, until more digging is done.

Unknown or "spikey" demand is a challenge for...

The speaker is perfect (enough} for music and home theater if it meets your standards for each.

I wonder if Geddes will hear of this and replace reticulated foam with balled-up napkins to reduce HOMs?

Bass is less intuitive than high frequencies. Probably standing wave suckouts at listening position.

Move the speakers around more. Change left-right and front-back distances.

If that's really average metered, and didn't include peaks (depends on how the meter is set and its integration time), I wonder if it's including subs or the mains? If mains, that might be 10dB above...

Yeah I'm debating between SEOS Sentinel 15", Fusion Tempest, 88 Special (which doesn't seem to get as much attention for some reason?), and the 1099 for a center speaker.

Ok thanks. It is a fully finished basement (after finding mold in walls and reading for hours of buildingscience.com) with .25" Fiberock and luxury vinyl tile, air supply and returns, etc.

Full range means the speaker has to act like a sub, or at least 10dB lower: 105dB ref level at 20Hz is the sort of thing 12" woofers and 400w and a big box are used for. Sure looks like a sub.

Looks like the Vifa would require you to add a crossover. That would play a part in dispersion (where you cross over from woofer to tweeter). And then also the tweeter's waveguide. Do you know its...

I don't think coaxials have inherently wide dispersion. It's that their dispersion is even in all axes. Some coaxials have the woofer acting as a waveguide for the tweeter. Others have a horn for the...
