1099/1299 question

What is the advantage of using the side by side mids when compression drivers on a seos 12 can play to 1100-1200 hz? Do the mids maintain pattern control lower? Was it so a cheaper 10 or 12" could be used that may not have as clean a top end as AE TD drivers?

I thought the reason for the design on the 1099 was primarily so it could be configured as a center channel.

Some others can give you better explanations I'm sure, but I've had 1099's setup as LCR for about a year now and from my estimation the mids do very light lifting overall. Compression driver is doing the serious heavy lifting and the dual 10" woofers are there for some clean but also not very impactful lower end. Absolutely gotta have subs for these, but with all this said, I could not be happier with them at the moment.

Part of me wishes I went with the 1299's because of their better midbass, but lack of available flatpacks and lack of power tools kept me away


Then again, with my mini marty, VBSS, and BOSS platform, I dont know that I would notice mumch of a difference with the low end.

10/10 would buy/build the 1099's again if I were to do it all over


However, I would go with HT or HTM line for surrounds rather than the V2 volt 6's I put together

The side by side mids are part of the 3 way design keeping the crossover point lower to help with the center to center spacing of the 10s and off axis response.

Hey Tyler, why would you not use the Volts again? Were they not able to deliver the output you're looking for?

I had not considered the Crossover frequency using 2 tens. As a TMM, it would have needed 2 crossovers for the 2 10's. As a TM, ultimate SPL is lower by 6 db or so.

The mids are mostly used in this design to help with the horizontal center problems experienced with a horizontal WTW and combing.

I'm also curious to hear your thoughts on the Volts.
