They are kind of serious and would be full-on retarded to run permanently in any room of my house. I've only played them in my 30'x26' family room for about 20 minutes and yes, they can slightly
overload the room. They are the 'NET LIVE' models with internal Lab Gruppen power and full DSP
(both Lab and Tannoy are owned by the TC Group). Why do I have them? Because I fell in love with Tannoy gear the first time I heard it, and more importantly, have a head full of bad wiring!
I've mentioned a few times in the past couple years that I was considering cloning them; an opportunity presented itself for these and the old saying of "what the phuck" seemed like the best way to handle the temptation at the time.
They are a REAL beeotch to move though at 190 lbs. per, which doesn't work that well with my solitary audio hobby.
The longer term plan is to build a 4-pack of horn subs to go underneath each one and throw down righteous EDM tunes to groups of 500 or so in exchange for money. Right now, primarily because there is this giant stack of 10 LAB15's that has been sitting here unmolested for a few years, I'm leaning towards Lilmike's Microwrecker -- which is quite similar to a Danley TH-50 but will reach smoothly up to 160 Hz before encountering a big dip like the TH-50 has at a much lower point -- I can't find a curve sheet for the discontinued TH-50 and don't remember exactly where it's resonances start to get out of control, but it's upper -3dB point is only 70 Hz. 4 Micro's per side should be good to about 140 dB at 20 Hz, and mesh up well with the VQ's upper -3dB point. A pair of Othorns under each one would probably make more sense though (2 less cabs with the same output and about 5 Hz less extension), so I may sell the LAB15's and go that route.
