The EX blows the Plus away in my 14.5X14.5X8 room with two openings. The Plus sounded awesome, but the EX adds that boot to your face.
I have only run them in ME mode. I played with the Plus for months in the different modes and preferred ME. I will play with the EX modes when the plug issue is resolved.
With the Plus, it seemed to sound different after a break-in period. I'm expecting the same of the EX.
Right now, I'm running them both up front between my display and front LR speakers. They complement each other well and seemlessly. I am going to try to move them to the sides of the room, but have to wait for my Tartan Cables to come in. After I try that, I am going to try the EX up front and the Plus behind (and closer to) the main listening position.
Eventually, I want another EX and will sell the Plus, probably to a buddy who recently bought a Hsu STF-2. We ran the STF-2 and my Plus together at my house, when his was freshly unboxed. The Plus fails to provide a lot of midrange the STF-2 played well. The Plus picked up where the STF-2 let off seemlessly and beautifully and vice versa. This was especially notable with music.
It would probably be smarter to sell the Plus and get a STF-2; we'll see.
I'm very dissappointed Outlaw discontinued their 10" line.
