I'm gonna update the first post with a link to these posts and the measured impedance instead of modelled. Another schematic can be done. I suppose the XO is no secret. :p

Wait a minute,,, there were two of you from Kelowna? I didn't know that. Which one of you is the Production Manager who was interested in the blacks on the PJ? Trying to piece together faces.

The tricky part is the side by side woofers. The 1099 was almost a failure because of them. And based on the work Matt and Jeff had to do on the AE 6" and Cinema 88 respectively, doing a 1299 or 1599...

Hi Archaea,

I disagree that low passing a sub at 14hz and listening tells you much about the experience. Alternatively, you could high pass the playback at 14hz and see. Regardless, I've done...

Donny could probably answer that best. He also owns Fusion 8s. Hmm, maybe just his center, can't remember. He has heard the Tempest a fair amount I think also.
