I feel somewhat silly mentioning this, but I am one of the SEOS pre-orderers and I ordered with the simple intention of two-channel listening, with hopes of an eventual expansion towards a subwoofer (and thus eventual 5.3) down the road. However, for myself (and many others I assume), cramped living conditions and WAF is difficult to work around, so my immediate goal is simply to better the Klipsch Fortes I am currently using with something of a) better audio quality (better directivity, elimination of horn honk, increased bandwidth) and b) better efficiency (I use a 10wpc tube amp). For those reasons, I have been considering mating my SEOS-12s to 15" woofers.
On that note, I'm curious about certain woofers that seem to never come up. I've been researching and some of the RCF woofers look great, specifically the MB15H401
, but because they haven't been mentioned before, I'm wondering what in the specs is wrong with it. It seems to have decent bandwidth (40-2000Hz), good xmax (7.5mm) and great efficiency (rated 100dB 1W/1M) for my stated goals. For the sake of future research, I'm wondering what about these specs I am missing that would preclude these sort of drivers from consideration.
And furthermore, is it silly that I am planning on using the SEOS design for something as pedestrian as listening to LPs?Edited by BBrinkman - 6/11/12 at 9:59pm
