Classix II vs Apollo vs Helix
Sorry if this has been covered before, but was wondering if anyone has heard all 3 of these and can comment on them. I've been asked to build a bookshelf in the 6.5"-ish range for relatives (they want something to match the decor, so I suggested a DIY build). Three different designers, but the only one I've heard/built has been a few kits from Carmody (which I like).
The Apollo looks like it'd be the best if not running a sub, but the 4ohm spec has me wondering just how demanding it is (due to also having very low sensitivity). If it's anything like the Elac UB5's that I have, it'll need a powerful amp (100WPC or more) to really bring out the dynamics.
I'm leaning Classix II since it seems to be a good all-around kit, but wanted to ask here first in case anyone had some insight.
