The only part of of the above I disagree with is the last sentence. I think that's a possibility, but not a certainty. I have it on my list to try sometime, as I have good examples of both on hand....

It's worth noting that TAD couldn't get veneered translam right, even with all of Pioneer's resources and fabrication capabilities. IIRC they recalled all of their TAD Model Ones!

The only result from that approach is pointless over-specification.

What's the basis for that assertion? They're just speakers. If anything, a narrower pattern requires a more live room to increase spaciousness.

But the bottom line is that such SPL falloff...

Outdoors or in an anechoic chamber. Not in a small room. The falloff in a small room is much, much less.

Actually, I think it's a great idea - if done for the right reasons.

Then cite one that is actually relevant and material to your argument, instead of waving your hands.



For movies, perhaps you're right. Movies require headroom from a sub, and that's about it....

It's ugly. There you go.

A Peerless XXLS12 woofer powered by an adequate amp in a well-tuned cabinet is just not a device that's going to result in much to complain about.

I've heard it between two Classic Threes, and disagree. Maybe for movies or TV, where sound quality is unimportant, it'll do fine. But for multichannel music...no thanks.

That's because there is no value in it. Indeed, 5kHz is IMO too high for room correction. 500Hz is about right. The great thing about ARC is that the user can choose a top-end cutoff lower than the...

These were sold maybe a decade ago under the "Final" name. Don't remember anything about them except for the treble beaming and colored midrange.
