it is being attempted with the SEOS, i know there is a 8" version dedigned by Jeff Bagby that uses the EOS-8 horn between 2 of the Emenence 8s. its basicall a fusion 8 with an additional woofer
I "think" someone is doing something similar with the SEOS 12 but i may be wrong. i thought people said the design of the horn didnt really work for that alignment. Chopshop is doing something crazy with the SEOS 24

cool track man...thanks for that.

A few bass lines in there that alerted me to some resonate frequencies around my house, lol. Quite a few that rolled right through my floor boards.

The crash and hign notes jn the begining paired with the bass note is a speaker killer...... if you run full range there is a good chance the bass notes eats all the power and cant do the highs as crisp.... a great test.

It was about 85ish dB while playing the Chinese drum clip (one of the first). Due to the different sensitivities the received volume was wildly varying even after level matching with white noise....... it seems white noise wasnt a very good choice to use for level matching. So we fine tuned using the omni mic and the chinese drum track.

85ish db peak, max, or average on omnimic with chinese drums?
post #309 of 568
I dont recall.... Mike will have to answer that one once he gets the freq graphs up....

I don't think the Phil's could be said to be "warm" but they are more alive than neutral ..if that makes sense? And the clarity and sound stage are amazing.

I have not heard the Salk line... Are they warmer?

As for the Seos and Nesos...

Seos - I am using the Ascend CBM 170SE as surrounds right now ...and to my ears the SEOS beat them out. Not by much...but be enough for the price it gives me a good project to work on.

As for the Noesis... I thought they did sound forward and slightly warm. This was after a couple beers, a very long day and standing in the back for the first time... Was this not true?
No I would not say that the Noesis are warm at all. I have a feeling that you would like the Salk HT2-TL or the HT3. I was going to buy the HT3's until I came across the Noesis. I still would like to get a pair of the HT3's for a 2ch music system.

On the drums track we had it dialed in so that the track would average 85-90db throughout the entire clip.

1000%. A huge and very worthwhile upgrade. The size difference and moving it out from the wall is huge also. I really couldn't go any bigger from 16' back with my eyes. biggrin.gif

Mike - are you referring to the top, bottom, and either side of the screen? If so, yes and I started building out the panels. smile.gif

Never! This time I'm going to try to make it. biggrin.gif I'll see if any other members from Toronto are up for it too. I'll bring some Canadian alcohol for the group. It's nice and strong up here. wink.gif

Glad I could provide some inspiration. biggrin.gif

Thanks for doing this GTG. It is fun and informative reading all the impressions. It is very interesting how the high efficiency speakers seem to have so many fans, but most companies don't offer designs like that. One day hopefully I will get to listen to some JTR or Seaton speakers.

Any measurements posted yet? I read through the whole thread a week ago or so but did not see any yet.

Also, it is cool to see some companies eagerly participating. Even if not everyone loves every speaker, I think the overall publicity is a big positive for an Internet direct company.

You can almost guarantee RX-8 (Bill) will be their. He's from Woodbridge, so he's close to Toronto.
