Oh, I'd try to take one for the team and pick up 4 more 18's , but it's looking like they are all out of the D2 SI's until...who knows.
I feel the same way about the speakers. have about $2500 tied up in my Revel 5 channel setup in the family room. They sound nice, but for $2500 I could probably build Sentinel lcr, minion rears and jsut put a little more effort into cab design and finish, and have a far superior performer.

Once we both have ours built we should get together and try running all 4 of them up front (2 per L/R). Stack on top of each other, disconnect the horn and flip one of them upside down. I can't help but wonder.
Not sure how much this would throw off the design characteristics, but a 2 x 15 design with a beastly compression driver would be nuts.
That is a great idea!! I'm in dude. If it throws things off, I'm sure we could figure it out. Not sure how big a diffeerence it would be, but won't know if we don't try it. If I had more xover design skill, I would love to do two of the B&Cs with one of the 1.4 bms coaxial CDs. I feel like its a Noesis rip off but it could probably be done for about $1200 including cabinet and be as sick of a speaker as you could want. I don't really know if the BMS is better than the Denovo from experience, but it would seem to be, in addition to the fact that its a coax. The only problem is that if we get one of these two woofer designs to work out, we are gonna have to start over with our LCRs

They are pretty sick looking in person. I have never had a driver of that design so its cool and different.
