I don't know where to begin with my question, but this is regarding the Volt 6 and Volt 10 LX.
My system consists of the Elusive 1099 for the LCR, the Volt 10 LX in the ported flat pack for side surrounds, and then the Volt 6 in the angled flat packs, as my rear back.
These are hanging up in the back of my room. Here's some pictures of the setup to get an idea of room layout/placement to go with the question...
Volt 6 picture attached, rest can be seen here:
So I noticed lately, especially with some video games, and certain movies, the Volt 6 seem to lack vocal depth that I can easily hear from the front speakers and side surrounds. Is this more due to the smaller size of the Volt 6 speakers and or them being up high?
Would adding one of the passive Cerwin Vega subwoofers I have or add a 10" to 12" MBM to those channels help any, and sitting it on the floor along the same back wall? Eventually I plan to get a new Marantz preamp and utilize front and rear height on Dolby Atmos / DTS X / Whatever, but I don't quite know how things will go in that department.
Other than that, they sound great and go wonderfully with the LCR as far as timbre matching to my ears.
However, I don't know what it is about the Volt 10 LX, but only the midrange or low midrange and low end seem to match just fine, but something's off with my tweeters. I'm fairly sure I wired the crossovers correctly, but it doesn't sound right to me. I can tell the, apart from the 1099s and Volt 6 quite easily from it.
I don't believe the original Volt 10s I have (which are used in the living room for my parents) sounded like that, for the tweeters. I'm a bit puzzled. I find it very hard to describe, but the tweeters kinda sound more... Crispy and the upper midrange a bit lacking? The 10" drivers other than that seem to function rather well.
I'm hoping it's an easy fix either way for both cases.
