well i voted floorstanders but I'm not sure now.
Exactly! In this project, we want to know what YOU want from a speaker. This will be designed around that. If the group picks stand mounted, then we'll have to figure a way to get all of the remaining performance requirements in a stand mounted box. As of now,that's certainly possible. I chose this polling question early on as most people will add a speaker to their room and not build a room around a speaker. As the remaining polls are posted, the options will reflect what we've already chosen. I'm trying to be as analytical with this as possible. For instance if this poll was one of the last and we already picked ported or sealed and extension was chosen as 30hz, stand mounted would pretty much be a non reality...get where i'm going? The group chose 60hz, so we're not locked in to ported designs......yet. If the group chooses Pro, high efficiency drivers, then ported it will be as the only way to get to 60hz sealed with those is 18" drivers. I'd be amazed if anyone was really willing to live with that. But Hey, that's what this project is about...what the HT enthusiast wants from a HT speaker. I'm surprised floorstanding has such a strong showing as of now.
