It's great to see this thread's still going. Gotta say that many of you here are responsible for helping me successfully build the speakers that we enjoy on a daily basis. Thank you, the HT works just fine.
I built four Audax MTM's (titanium-dome tweeter version) plus the WMTW center as well as four Modula MT's (Seas 27TBFC/G version).
I've run both sets of speakers with music and movies (using the Audax center with the Modula's) and each has its benefits.
I'm no audio expert, but I think the "higher efficiency" Audax MTM's pack a bit more punch in movies. And the voicing does seem quite accurate.
However, the Modula MT's certainly do it for me in terms of SQ.
Instruments like horns, strings and piano are crystal-clear. The vocals of female singers like Sarah McLachlan and Diana Krall have unbelievable clarity and depth (I'm not exactly sure how to accurately describe this etherial
quality of female voices).
Guitar and Sax? Played some Larry Carlton Collection (Blues For TJ & Hello Tomorrow)
...and wow! Eagles - Farewell 1 Tour - Live From Melbourne
gave these puppies a fairly good workout as well. No problem for the MT's.
Presently I'm waiting for Jon Marsh to complete his design for an RS180-based WMTW center using an RS52 mid with either the Vifa D26NC55 or Seas 27TFFNC/G tweeter. He's also working on another variant (for his own HT system) using HiVi D6.8's instead of the RS180's. All of these would be designed around the stock PE MTM 1.0cu/ft cabinet whose baffle is 22"x9". So this center will be smaller than my current Audax WMTW.
Here's the thread:http://www.htguide.com/forum/showthr...2&page=1&pp=35
Once I've got an RS180-based WMTW center completed, I'll probably sell the Audax HT system.
Then I might be tempted build another couple of Modula MT's (non-BSC version) for L&R back speaker duty and perhaps a pair of RS180-based TMWW fronts (if Jon gets that design done).
I think I like building speakers!
Oh, if any of you James Bond fans haven't discovered the digitally-remastered Ultimate
series yet... they are phenomenal. We've watched a number of these, upconverted to 720P with the DTS 5.1 audio track pumping out great sound....lotsa fun!
