I think using the Process Monitor with PowerDVD method might work for this issue, since you would select the extended version to play then see what title that is in PM. Youtube "bluray obfuscation"

I don't see why you don't just use a TM (matching or not) on that top shelf? That's how my HT is at the moment. It's ideal sonically compared to MTM's on their side.

Why not consider the 18Sound CD's that were made for those horns? CD's and horns work as a system and slapping different combos together will get good sound quality only by freak chance.

That's the one! The polymer surround is what caught my eye. I know Paul W was looking for just such a driver - Ti diaphragm and soft surround - I should PM him, he'll probably try one out.

Larger diaphragms and lower Fs mostly. Some people are satisfied pushing 1" CD's down low, but I've heard issues in every speaker I've listened to that did that. And it often turns up as one (of the...

Interesting thread! I did a comparison (actual listening of high passed and level matched) of 1" CD's last year and it was very informative. But I think 1.4"/1.5" CD's are the way to go for the...
