Yup, still using them. I love them.

To, some designs should be done. There was chatter about mine, but honestly the interest has been very little. Not many people wanna cut holes in their walls.

I'd eq below 3 or 400 hz from the LP. Simple, fixes your problem, and works. Ya, the sens will be lower than required, but oh well.


In the future, pick a speaker for this application ;)

That guy seems to have based his opinion on Wayne's misleading threads on his forum. He uses faulty measurements to endorse his own product. I use to be nicer about it, but that's pathetic.

I haven't had one in my hands, but the specs are killer. I made an MBM thread in the diysoundgroup subforum and have some comments on it there.

Was it audio circle? I think Wayne hangs out over there. He cherry picked some bad measurements and spouted off some bad info about the seos. Which was about it being to shallow and having ripples in...

Matt,

The last sentence clears up what you're saying. The first part of what you're saying goes against the grain of current audio research.

The 1099 is a forward sounding speaker, in every...

I like that they are quite sensitive (98db) and mounted inwall so they have no SBIR. They're also very accurate sounding. What I don't like is that I can't angle them.

They're DIY speakers.

Not like one would expect. I do listen on axis, and the HF tapers off very quickly when moving around, but for LP listening it's perfectly fine. I have had other horns that can't hold a stereo image...

Any way you can meld those pictures together in photochop or something? I've seen it done before when people ask these questions. I can't accurately tell where the lines connect.
