Thanks for the kind words and glad you liked the post!
I finally have a good seed system (2.1) now to build upon, to recreate (and hopefully improve upon) the 7.1 system I created (and sold off) using Magnepans all around.
I am building DIY full range LCR speakers, open baffle, active crossover, quad-amped (an homage to Linkwitz' Orion but using different drivers, enclosure, amps and EQ)
The Valors will be used with these DIY mains but the crossover will be dropped down to 40, just to support the lowest octave of the dipoles.
At that point, I will be getting a dedicated LFE sub, probably a Phoenix (with ports stuffed) for the largest sealed 18" sub I can afford, EQed with the Antimode 8033.
