If I went with Kharma-10s across the front, would you recommend matching the Kharma-8 for surrounds? I'm not sure if I'm going to go with box or in-wall surrounds yet (already have Sonance THX-LCR and THX-SUR in-walls I could recycle from my current theater), but I would assume the Kharma-8 would be a good match and up to the task.
Thanks for catching that. In my rush I copied the info from the original MTG-08 speaker, pasted it there, and obviously forgot to delete that part. But I fixed it. I contacted the 2 people that already ordered a pair to see if they want a refund. Of course the kits come with the ports, I just forgot to add those into the total cost. I'll leave it like it is until the few people that asked about them make up their mind. Changing the prices before they decide wouldn't be good.
The Karma-8 is getting a slight change from the designer. The box size for the other 8" models was identical, and it just so happen to be the same volume as the original MTG-08 speaker. So Matt reworked that speaker using the same woofer and CD, but with the EOS-8 waveguide and the slot ports to decrease the overall height of the cabinet. I'm going to try and get that photo posted this weekend with the other ones. Once that change is made, and Jeff Bagby puts the finishing touches on the 8" model he's working on, we'll be pretty good to go with only 2 speakers missing from the top tier.
There are some designs that I'll put in the "Other" category, and then I'll spend time tweaking everything and getting the write ups looking better. It all takes time. Yesterday I packed up 12 packages, today I did 14. Hoping to get another 5-7 done this evening and I'll be fairly caught up. I'm starting to see the need for help.
