Very impressive indeed. I used to own a pair of the SC-V Bass Towers and never could get them integrated in my room so sold them. THAT was a mistake.
I went through a divorce about 6 years ago and sold most of my good audio equipment and sold my Dunlavy SC-VI's to a friend. After looking for years, he finally found what he believes is a better speaker in every way than his VI's and he had to spend over $50K to do so (Magico 5's). He sold me my VI's back and I could not be more pleased. I've only had them in place for a few weeks and, since this is my busy season, have spent very, very little time listening (bought some used Bryston 7B-ST's amps to drive them). I forgot how great they are and in my current room, the bass is much, much better than it was in my last room. (I had a 15 db bump at 65hz in my last room but room correction tamed it). As you can see from the following photo, they measure quite good in room. I used digital room correction and got rid of some bass ringing but even with out it, they sound quite good. The following photo is without correction and smoothed 1/6th octave. The blue line is my room and the other is from the room of the previous owner. His room was built from scratch and has ZERO bass ringing/overhang. Best room I ever heard. (I have not heard his Magicos yet),
Your phot is quite impresseive. I've tried to take some photos but with black grill covers in front of a black wall, they don't show up very well
I was a dealer for Dunlavy for 5 years and John custom built this pair for me. I had the fronts finished in the cherry but these speakers spent well over 30 hours in the Dunlavy anechoic chamber. I had owned a previous pair of VI's and these measured much better (there was too much time between the two pair for me to say these sounded any better !!)
For two channel, I use no subs. For HT, I used 4 Seaton SubMersive HP's.
Can we say "fun"?
Too bad John is not alive and active today. As awesome as the IV's, V's and VI's are, can you imagine what he could do with better drivers, better cabinet material , better crossover components and powered speakers?
