Exactly. Cabinets are a significant cost, and usually the biggest single cost of a loudspeaker. Finishes also complicate the supply chain and further drive up costs.

That xpa-5 is a beast. I bet you're getting some great dynamics.

You got pics of your setup? :D

You may have heard something change. Every amp designer creates a slightly different product. But, without any sarcasm, I doubt it was a net positive change.

They are a very easy load to drive... easier than many speakers rated as "8 ohm nominal". The A5's impedance curve is very benign. It, literally, never dips below 5 ohms.

There are many popular 8...

Jon hit the nail on the head. There is a sub chamber in the base of the speaker cabinet. IIRC, the downloadable ARX manual on the product page has an illustration in it.

I'm really liking the mass loading of the enclosures. It's helping the A3rx-c even further bridge the gap between them and the A5's.

Now I just need to drive down there and pick up my A5rx-c's.

Gathering some impressions on the A3rx-c's with their bases mass loaded with about 22lbs of sand each. Next time, I'll use lead shot though as the juncture between the port and the top of the sealed...

Belden Ten white 10awg cable from BJC with their ultrasonically welded locking WBT banana connectors on each end. Got em for not much more than the cost of monoprice 12awg with good connectors.

I was able to fit just over 20 pounds of sand in the base of each A3rx-c. Simple enough to perform, though time consuming. Will likely use lead shot next time due to it being measurably higher in...

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....

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.
