Enjoy your further listening and report back. One thing though beast...you'll have to come up with another superlative other than 'absolutely'; I believe it attained the maximum number of allowable uses in the last paragraph.
Yea wow, I didn't really proof that post, terrible on my part. My apologies for the over-use and poor pontification, I was just MAD stoked at how impressed I was.

Maybe too close for complete summation?
Not sure, if I moved the mic a little lower, where it would be about right at the phase plug's height, there is a pretty serious dip at 1khz, at the LP, up close, it isnt as noticable, and the FR is about the same as what I have posted around 1khz, just the top end rolls off much faster at that point. Could it also be too much of that "lateral" treatment? Where should I start? Each panel up to the front row treats a first reflection point of one of the front speakers, the ones beyond that are just for looks and for the surround reflection points. I like a pretty heavily treated room, but I could possibly remove some of the further back panels and treat the front wall a little more if need-be.

Just out of curiosity, if you're not pushing the A&E woofers very hard, wouldn't other "lesser" woofers sound pretty close to the same? I'm talking about decent woofers from other manufacturers, not their lower end stuff.
Glad you like the waveguides. And you're right, having all of this come together so the DIY guys can get this level of audio gear for a fraction of the price is incredible. Don't forget the reviews for anything you ordered! Lots of people love this stuff......not so many take the time to write up the reviews though.
Where do you want me to review the stuff? I would be happy to
As far as the AE stuff goes, yes you could use a different woofer I would guess, but the distortion and linearity figures might suffer somewhat. The AE is just so friggin clean.

No flat pack, I just bought the front baffles, and cut the ports myself, and built the box around it.

Up top they are both very similar, but the soundstage is more uniform from what I remember. The sweet spot is the widest and most uniform I have ever heard. I can pick instruments out of the mix better so far and pinpoint their location on the screen. down low, since they are usable to 20hz full range, there is no comparison, they will walk all over the T-12's there. If I XO'd them at 80hz, which I plan on doing for movies, then my general consensus would be that I like the SEOS better, purely for the fact the more controlled directivity over the coax plays better with my room, and sounds overall better to me
