Lets see, the Klipsch likely has a metal cone breakup that is not notched out ($) and a HF driver that is not attenuated enough which makes it stand out in the showroom. Both issues would give...

Jeez now that is a joke of a diy speaker. All the drivers are in parallel with each other which means system impedance is in the 2 ohm range or worse, which is why you cant find an amp that works. A...

The HT 18 is a better deal for sure. The dual 15"s will do 120db with 2k watts, and have a couple db more output below 22hz. The SI will also do 120db limited to 1400 watts. The dual 15"s should have...
