I noticed that as well. Jim recommends the tweeter go on the inside but to be fair whether it's on the inside or outside is just user preference.

OK, fess up. Who's upgrading?

Haha - that's awesome.

Some people intentionally position the tweeter to the outside. Whether it actually makes a difference I don't know.

Actually, I think the tweeters are positioned right. The first pic wasn't clear which side of the room it showed. This shows both SCSTs.

I dont think there is right or wrong, it does depends how far they are from each other. My initial set up have the tweet out, but after this post i have switched to inside and noticed a more focus center images. I think it depends on preference.
post #8318 of 9127
For optimum results , the speakers should be setup so that the tweeters are on the inside. In other words , for the right , the tweeter should be offset to the left and vise versa .

This was done to minimize diffraction artifacts


I just went by the notes from Jim , but people are free to do what they feel is best

Yea. here in FL that setup used a different pair of SCST's... I did something silly (well not really: they are my favorite speakers).

Cost managed to talk me out of the SS8's.. not because they were "not worth it" but because the money didn't exist.

You have a nice setup that's for sure , I listen to my setup and I'm happy, I also know this is the end for now because the next step is going to be big $$$ It just don't stop with the towers
then one needs the matching center .

Thanks. I'm loving my setup & can't wait to get it into a proper listening space & out of this one room condo. This is it for me for a while. Not really a 2 channel guy, I bought my first HTIB just a few years ago. It's amazing how quickly it escalated. Really the only place I can go from here is a dedicated HT geared toward high SPL and a separate 2 channel room based on a pair of something awesome like the SS8s. I prefer to keep it simple with my current setup. No regrets at all.

According to the product page the standard front ported is 5" wider and 1.5" shallower than the rear ported version. But these are custom speakers so if you can always alter dimensions to fit your needs.

This is a bit anal of me but when I ordered my center I paid the extra 50.00 for Cardas Premium posts in black so it would match my towers , when I unpacked it the Cardas Premium post plate was silver .
I'm going to have Jim ship me a black one

Yea, I had Jim make mine to fit in a 7" high, 10" deep space between a mantle and a fireplace. Came out great, it's almost as long as my 50" plasma. Front ported. I usually leave the grill on so the CC blends in visually better.

I remember you mentioning the dimensions but I hadn't seen pics. It looks really great, like a souped up sound bar.

How does having your speaker with the tweeter to the inside or outside have anything to do with difraction?
I thought difraction has to do with the cabinet edges, im not sure that placing your speakers have anything to do with it.
Placing the tweeter off center has impact on diffraction.
