Ok. Didn't want to gym up the works with asking but did you build the Line Arrays yourself? Are those Bill Fitz designs?
Very interested in the design and their performance.
Beautiful room! Love the flat stone! Just brought home a sample and brochure myself.
Thanks in advance!!
I'm replying to your question here to enable others to see the answer if interested. Towards the beginning of this thread there is info on my LS9's and also in the DIY Gallery Thread

I would have enjoyed building these myself, but my finer woodworking skills can't come close to many on these forums. I designed/built my HT space so all speakers were visible when one enters. Due to that reason (and time of course) I sought out Ruben to build these. He has built hundreds of Danny Richie designs (among many others) over the decades and as they say, his work speaks for itself. I had the speakers wrapped in a charcoal colored leather to compliment the satin finish.
The LS9 and LS-C are designed by Danny Richie of GR Research
. As quoted above, my examples were built by Ruben. If you were interested in them, I would avoid seeking out Ruben though. I may have been the last person to actually get a finished product from him before he fell off the radar. Of course he already had lots of others $$$ before disappearing. The plans and components can still be purchased from Danny though for anyone wanting to assemble one of these themselves, or have someone else build them for you.
If you do any amount of music listening, you definitely cannot go wrong with these! I listen to a lot of music. Always in 2.1, although I will say that these line arrays reach down pretty far with plenty of authority on their own. On some music, I can bypass the LFE chnl and not notice any loss of impact, but who on these forums really wants to bypass the LFE....
. I cannot fully detail how incredible these speakers image when set up correctly! Holy COW! I dim the lights and close my eyes and would swear the center chnl is on. Then open my eyes and still think the center is on. The imaging is so precise. The other thing they do extremely well, which really comes as no surprise, is present a huge sound stage. Again, with eyes closed, you would swear the surround speakers were on. And with really well recorded sources, you actually "hear" things from somewhere other than the front.....
Having the amount of radiating surface area these 8' monsters have, movies can be reproduced at reference with ease, although I personally only listen at -15. They aren't cheap, but well worth the price of admission.....ESPECIALLY if you don't plan to hide them behind a screen.
If you have the talent to build and finish them right, they become much more reasonable to the wallet. There are one or two others on this forum which have LS9s and several who have it's little brother the LS6 (comparatively speaking since the LS6 is nearly 6' !!).
Hope this answers your questions.....
