They will calibrate mics not purchased from them. At least they have in the past. But it costs a little more in the long run I think.

Is the UMM6 in stock? Sometimes minidsp is who holds them up.

I'd wait for the CSL mic. I have two and it's quite nice knowing they've been double checked and include polar information, etc. You can try both cal files and see how close they are and compare...

TBH, everything.

I'd wait for the mic and get measurements.

Probably availability. The SEOS 8 isn't available in plastic, so it would cost quite a bit to use in a design like that. The EOS was sitting on the shelf for cheap, so Jeff used it. You could ask...

As in, take out the EOS and put in a SEOS on the Fusion 8? No, you can't do that.

Thank, it's appreciated. I still like to make sure you're getting the most out of your speakers, so when you've got a chance we can sort through these things a bit. I don't have a Fusion 10 thread on...

Oops, I just responded to this same post in the 1099 thread. I thought you had the 1099s based on that post. Here's my post changes in RED to reflect the Pure 10.

Hi goonstopher.

First I'll address #2 (http://www.avsforum.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=2) . This comes as a bit of a shock to me as I've compared the 1099 to the 228HT (not the...

Super elliptical instead of elliptical. The differences are subtle, but real. Both have their pros and cons. One isn't automatically better. Except if buying a big WG the SEOS are a crazy price. Not...

3113dood, there are differing views on this. I tend to feel its best to play it safe and generally prefer to not pair huge woofers with small waveguides. Better to keep the sound within the waveguide...

Mtg did that one with the Celestion. I didn't mean it like you side stepped me, that's not what happened. My comment was to say I love 8" implementations. I still do.

If I can itch that upgrade-itis for you, it's not just about output. The Fusion 8 certainly can go very loud. It's also about directivity, clean at reference, lower port tuning, Etc. Going big isn't...

I'll get mine. The local tool store sells them. Only reason I bought from elite was it was a little cheaper. Once they refund my money, I'll go give my money to the guy who'll look me in the eye....

If thinking of the dewalt and upgrading the head, in the long run it would probably be worth it to buy a 16" Grizzly with helix. Unless you didn't have the space. That would be a monster of a machine...
