Haven't heard the prime towers. On HTS the original A5 was compared very favorable with the ultra tower. I'd expect the rx-c version to out class the prime version, though there's no way to know...

I'm not quite sure about your statement regarding the bass extension.... the A3rx-c is +/- 3dB from 55hz to 25khz, while the CX-10 is +/- 3dB from 57hz to 18khz. That would be basically identical in...

Uh, the total air mass that the triple split gap midwoofers can move would be very comparable to a much larger driver.

Also, a system's true efficiency is determined by its bass alignment....

Take a look at the Chane A3rx-c towers. Leaves plenty of coin for a sub.

When using the 5G Wi-Fi network, if you're able to select the wireless channel it uses, pick one of the upper channels (they start in the high 140's, IIRC). These are permitted to have a higher...

You and I fall into the same category. I'd rather get the fundamentals of the room and sources right without any DSP done other than some bass management if I'm listening in 2.1.

I understand, but their proximity to the other speakers and the TV stand will negatively affect virtually any loudspeaker's presentation of the sonic image.

Do you have the ability to move them out from the wall/TV/entertainment center a little bit? I've found that the soundstage improves substantially when you get them away from things.

It is interesting. Just be careful about clipping your amp. At 4 ohms, the EMPs could be demanding TWICE the wattage of the A3rx-c's during dynamic peaks..... and their midrange has no upper-end...

Hmm. The crossover is right around 2.2k..... And I'm seeing a lot of gain ABOVE that. That's all tweeter there.

And I've seen the native plots for the Arx tweeter in the rx-c series, it's very...

Gotcha. I tend to find more of a grille-off preference on the A1rx-c, A2rx-c, and A3rx-c..... And about a 50/50 split for the first gen A5.

Yeah, the quick transients of percussive jazz and rock really come alive after the break in. Also, the sound stage grows in width and depth.

That stands to reason. More drivers at a relatively equal system volume means less wattage to each driver.

I think the EMPs and the Chane lines might possibly offer the most quality and bang for the buck available right now.
