My last thought was to use them as "flanking sub" components in my new mains (think "love child of the Pioneer S-3EX and NHT 3.3"), but the depth needed for a side-firing 15" woofer made them visually out of balance. So instead the flanking subs are built around a pair of Aurasound NS12-794-4A's. So it's back to all Aurasound drivers (5, total) for the multisub system.
I briefly had an LMS Ultra, but it didn't seem to give me anything the Maelstrom-X Mk. I it replaced didn't, so I flipped it. (There were great deals on those things last time TC went bankrupt, and prices rose when the supply dried up.) I did later replace the Mael-X with an Aurasound NS18-992-4A, and likewise don't feel it gave me anything sonically that the Mael-X didn't, but I kept the NS18 because it looks a whole lot cooler than any other 18" drive-unit I've seen.Edited by DS-21 - 1/30/13 at 6:52am
