Sub users with a smallish sealed room (such as myself, in a 10H X 13W X 19D room) have the luxury of not needing the output of a pair or more ported subs. With the increased popularity of open floor...

One ID sub company went further than that when I called to ask about their biggest sealed sub, the SVS SB13-Ultra. I was definitely being lead away from that or any other sealed sub except in the...

I too planned on having Sean build me crossovers with premium parts. We snoozed, we loosed! Of course, any competent EE can build a x/o (as long as a schematic is provided), but Sean is known for his...

If you're going with only one Rythmik, if you have room for the slightly larger F15 (or even E15), you should consider getting it instead of an F12. It's only a little more money, and with only one...

Don, at what Hz are you going to x/o from the Maggies to the four F12's? If going mono with all four subs works to your liking, you could also try locating them for maximum anti-room mode...

By "switched", do you mean left for right, putting the tweeter strips on the, for instance, outsides, rather than the insides (or visa versa)? The different positions for Maggies in a room are mainly...

Don, your room is basically a LEDE (live end dead end) room, with your Maggies in the dead end, isn't it? That idea became somewhat popular in the 80's IIRC, Bert Whyte at Audio magazine writing...

As you are already in DIY enclosures, you could make new ones with the narrow width you like, and make them deeper and/or taller (to keep the desired 3-4 cu.ft. internal volume). It would be a shame...

Don't feel too bad. The Dahlquist speakers were relatively good for the time (1970's), but that's because most speakers back then were so bad, not because the Dahlquist were so good! I view them as...

I would not want to be the maker of a $1200-$2400/pr box speaker. Unless the listening room is just too small for a pair of .7's or 1.7's (or ET LFT-8's), there is no need to settle for the sound of...
