For sure it was an incredible value, to where it seemed to me that a lot of high enders pooh-poohed it because it wasn't expensive enough.

I was referring specifically to a car door slam; other real events may be a different matter.



I meant to use amps that give more W/$ than the Crowns, and use Dirac in lieu of their DSP.

Thanks for the info, and I hope so too, though both Lexicon and JBL/Synthesis aren't usually what I'd call affordable.

That leaves Harman Kardon, which have tended to be rather buggy in recent...

I've used both epoxy and polyester resins; the latter is cheaper and requires less precise mixing.

Tap Plastics has what they call Super Hard epoxy.

Of course it's not really (it's still plastic), but it's a lot harder than regular epoxy.

It does seem as if an inordinate amount of the cost of a full system is the amps.

I wonder how more affordable amps coupled with Dirac EQ would compare.

125W can be sufficient for a system with a capable sub, as the big SPL from a door slam is at low freq.

With a XO at 80+ Hz, there are many satellites with 95+ dB efficiency that will reproduce...

Intersting data, thanks.

I'm puzzled that the sound power is more rolled off than both the on-axis and listening window, as it's a combination of both.

Since the elbows are out you don't need metal; I'd use Sonotube - light and well damped.
