I would really love to have Noesis fronts, but I just can't afford them. With a flat pack to put together like this, looking as good as they do, performing as well as they do.... damn. I'm very interested.
These seem to be an awesome higher end option for those willing to spend a few hours to finish the enclosure. Buying the flat pack from Erich would save a TON of time in cutting, assembly, and finishing. They aren't the Noesis, but at less than 1/4 the cost they will make you very happy.

F**king epic! Stuff those babies up, run full range and enable double bass. Profit.
Damn right! Dude, you're JBL midbass is going to be killer. You might want to turn your subs off from time to time to let them do their thing.

is it possible that xt32 is putting a lot of eq on your speakers 'under' their tuning frequency and setting them up for potential damage?
i didn't catch what the tuning frequency is on those enclosures.
i'm also pretty surprised that you were able to clip an ep amp on them with music. or, was that again with a ton of eq from xt32?
LTD - Audyssey didn't appear to add any boost really anywhere with these when I toggled it on/off. It did however tame some pretty nasty peaks around 100hz and 500hz IIRC. XT32 seems to work much better with mains for me than with my subs where it does little to nothing useful for me. They are tuned to ~46hz so my room is adding some decent gain down low.
When I did my initial test with the EP and it was tapping the clip lights during peaks, I hadn't run Audyssey yet and EQ was off. They appear to be able to take some power! The B&C driver is rated at 1100W program.Edited by Gorilla83 - 1/28/13 at 5:35am
