So i am thinking of replacing my SS50C by Goldenear Technology with one of their SCXL's as i like the idea of having lower mid range bass to handle dialog and sound.
The SS50C uses the Triton II's to do the heavy work, in mono. It sounds excellent, but when i auditioned the SCXL it seemed to add to what i can only describe as a hollower sound the SS50C was putting out. I still think the SS50C sounds better than the Paradigm Reference Series Center i had before.
However, i don't want to necessarily sell my SS50C. Could i use it as a surround rear mounted vertically? I know the tweeter is horizontal and the speaker terminals are horizontal, how much difference does that make versus a vertically mounted tweeter??
Keep in mind that the SS50C is a structurally "flat" speaker. Will it suffer from acoustic lobing??
Was listening to music tonight and noticed distortion coming from the left bass radiator. Which is odd because all of my bass goes to my subwoofer and my crossover is 150 hz.
Not sure what happened? Rest of speakers in system are functioning properly, including my titan 2's.
Do I take speaker to dealer??
Dealer emailed me this morning, looks like the SS 50 is going in for service. I will ask them this question when I take it in.
