Very thorough write up of the design and build, well done. I hope some people looking for LS3/5a style units like it.

Having used the TADs in my big horn system, I disagree. I don't think they're all that great, certainly not for the price they get. At the time I preferred the BMS coaxes in both the trax and...

I'm far more into things that will make a difference in performance than wasting it on stuff that can't be...

Never used the CD or flare, but the Klipsch K33 is a very average driver. A 2226 or TD15 would be a better choice.

Reading your new thread in DIY, it sounds like a set up/integration issue. I'm...
