I bet you probably have so much sub now that the midbass is not on the same level.
The subs provide a heck of a lot of midbass, especially now that I've got them crossed at 100hz. I will see how they (the SHOs do with a pro amp on them. If I can get the same output like I do now at +5 or so with music and movies without compressing or distorting, I'll be a happy camper.
These speakers really are phenomenal considering the size and price. 99% of the listening zone they handle with ease and precision.

just make some Jubescalas and be done with it LOL
Keep in mind I was quoting measurements from 1M - at the listening position it's going to be a lot lower.

After a few test's plan on building dual delta 10s at 425rms into 4Ohms each. Dialing back the Danley's a little till that project is finished.
If find a suitable 4 ohm amp try testing with your sho's. Disconnect one of the horn's, then flip that box upside down and set on the floor. Stack another sho on top and wire them in parallel for 4 ohm. While not perfect it's a good test to see approx output of what''s possible.
I was thinking the exact same thing. I have an EP4000 sitting around collecting dust so I may as well give it a shot. I'll be going from like 130 watts to 450ish so that should help a good bit. Hopefully I don't melt anything.
Tomorrow morning my wife is out so seems like a good opportunity.
