Impressions are starting to show up in the G2G thread here http://www.avsforum.com/t/1468211/ne-spring-speaker-shootout-results-thread-april-13-2013/0_100
Personally i love them, (which is good) im very happy with my decision to build vs buy something. As pretty much everyone who has heard them says they are very clear and accurate speakers with great dynamics that will play to pretty insane levels if you want them to. the Fusion 8s are a fantastic little speaker, great clarity and detail out of a tiny footprint, We listened to them on Friday and Saturday and people seemed to enjoy the sound out of them. i think some were happily surprised with the clarity and volume in the high-end. they definitely need to be run with a sub .
we didn’t listen to the Fusion 10s but TBH they sound very similar to the 12s that I’m not sure we would have been able to tell the difference when not running full range
The 12s were run and so were Andrews 15s. With subs these do sound very similar as well. The 15 has a slightly deeper midrange due to woofer size and they can take more power. if we ran them both wide open i think the edge would have gone to the 15s as they just have more bass potential with a larger woofer. Both are tuned about the same, and will extend into or below 20Hz when run full range depending on the room. Phenomenal value for $ Spent. Clear and accurate, huge soundstage & amazing detail. Some commented that they can be a little bright. I would not disagree they can get there but it’s easy to keep in check with some EQing. They do sound different in Andrews basement vs my house, but still very good. Either setup would be able to fill quite a large space with ease
Actually I think once its nice I’ll take one outside and make a video
Many are curious as to how they compare to the JTRs and the Seatons. TBH the Noesis and Cat12s are in another league as they should be. However the SEOS designs get very close to 90% at a fraction of the cost. I feel they can definitely hang with the big boys but Jeff And Mark truly have something very special in their top end offerings. A blind demo between the SEOS Tempests & Sentinels, the smaller Noesis 228’s and the Cat8C’s could be very interesting.
