Pardon, must have been a "Senior" moment.

Now, back on topic. Think I finally got the Hsu High Pass Filter matched to the Subwoofer and Magnepan LRSs.
Will provide the final settings on sub for Music settings (thanks to Hsu Support) later.

I leave entire words out, which spellchecker has a difficult time catching. Oh gawd, old age. The only thing I can do better is fart.

What usually gets me is a correctly-spelled but incorrect word. Like "tanks" rather than "thanks". Spellchecker is fine with it. A grammar checker would probably catch it but I don't have one that runs in a browser. Or "he" all the times I type too quickly and miss the "t" in "the".

Here's an AXPONA19 Magnepan LRS Review that shows something I missed in the other photos taken there.

http://www.enjoythemusic.com/AXPONA_2019/Becker/Part5/

"...I've left the photo uncropped to give you a better idea of how the room was set up and how well these speakers fit into this modest size room. Note the large black panel on the right wall acting as a non-parallel absorber/diffuser..."

I didn't notice the diffuser in the other photos. Scotth3886 did you see it?
Did Wendell explain it? Just curious.

Another point made to show just how good the LRS sounded.
"... The real danger, as I see it, is that people wanting to get a taste of panel speakers might decide to upgrade everything else in their system before ever wanting to purchase a larger Magnepan. It's that good..."

Scotth3886,
Think I see it in your photo. On the right edge near the surge protector on the floor, you can see the bottom edge of the dark diffuser touching near the side of the surge protector...you agree?

I bought an amazon firestick over prime day solely to use the tidal app and now Im watching music vids while listening to tidal/LRS. I just started with a classical playlist and it really adds to the music seeing musicians in their positions playing instruments. not all vids do this, some just show a trippy video to go with the music...but I like it....time to explore the 1/4 million vids tidal has.

I came very close to buying JBL Studio 580, but then I got a couple of PMs saying to wait for the next time that 590s are on sale, which is now. I like the contrast of having hugely different speakers here, but isn't nine pair enough?

No, just means you're as weird as the other guy. Do you share the same island?

I was thinking you should go for ten to bring it up to a nice even number, but if you're an odd sort of guy then stop...

Or not; 11 is odd, and more than that is prime, seems like a better target.

I dunno, it seems to me that Scott is a little odd, but by his own admission, past his prime. So, he needs to get to at least 15 pairs, or stay at 9.

I'm ok now. I just watched the live reveal of the 2020 new mid-engine Corvette so now back to my other distraction. Too bad Vette owners, mostly, are such dicks.

Hi All,

I sent email to Hsu Support,

"...As Steve Guttenberg said in a review of Hsu VTF-1 MK2 he preferred clean, highly defined Bass for Music Listening. I too prefer that, so what Hybrid Tuning choice should I use on my Hsu VTF2-MK4 Crossover at 80Hz? My Main Magnepan LRS Planar Quasi-ribbon speakers at 80Hz via Hsu Bass Optimizer High-Pass 80Hz Filter from Emotiva PT-100 Preamp to Emotiva BasX A300 Poweramp..."

Tech Support replied..."You can try one port open, EQ2, Q 0.3."

They were right on the money. Electric Bass on Stereophile Test CD 2 sounds great!
Nice tight Bass sound, no booms or overhang. It's like I'm hearing it live!
For me, the Hsu VTF series subwoofer is the perfect compliment to the sound of the AMAZING (I think Bob Carver coined the phrase) Loudspeaker a.k.a. Magnepan Little Ribbon Speaker...little in size but a giant in performance!

See Attached results after adding Hsu High Pass Filter at 80Hz.
Very happy and I can stop tweaking now and as the Doobie Brothers once sang..."Listen to the Music"

Nope, the new midengined C8 introduced last night.

I'm not going to do one, but I did see a really nice 38,000 62 Fleetwood on ebay.

That way I could have the personalized plate 'FLEET' meaning either the car or I'm full of chit and need to do sumthin about it.

Also HSE BOAT and VESSEL are available too.

Too bad I'm such a tightwad

Look at this big gurl and sold for a lot cheaper than I thought it would

today I put one of my nad amps in bridged mode to trip....was listenening at -1.5db on avr for 45 min plus and shut down. one amp that tripped was over 160f while other was 115f....so obviously I dont recommend. still shopping for a new amp preferrably for front 3....but still undecided. it took 30+ minutes for the one hot nad amp to recover. I was jamming very loud, wonder if another amp would be huge benefit as I dont jam this loud often...well obviously wont be able to with my amps shutting down lol.

the question I think about is if a 200/400 wpc in 4 ohms can do better than what I have????I like listening loud at times and obviously. I know what my nad amps can deliver so if I buy new amp need to get same spl but with added sq I suppose. all the stuff at local dealer is $$$ stuff...which I like, just not going there.

torii,

This post from DonH50 was very helpful in my setup. Try it to see how it can help you make your decisions on how you would like to proceed with your LRS setup requirements

http://myhometheater.homestead.com/splcalculator.html
per DonH50 Post

torii as an example, here's my results using DonH50s link:

Magnepan LRS
Freq. Resp: 50-20kHz
Sensitivity: 86dB/500Hz/2.83v (1 Watt)
Impedance: 4 Ohm

Emotiva BasX A-300 Amp
300w/Ch at 4 ohms

Puts out 108.5 dB SPL at nearfield MLP 8.5feet from LRSs.
Being "hearing challenged" using Sound Level Meter,I set my PreAmp Volume at 85dB Peak before listening.

My music listening space is shared with Home Theater 4K Movie Viewing for Dolby Atmos 7.2, using Klipsch LCR FHL FHR SBL SBR and 2 subwoofers. (Action Movies can get pretty loud.)

I have some retro stereo gear dating back to the 70s. But the Magnepan's are a whole 'nother "ball-game". My first entry into the world of "High-End" stereo.
I discovered the LRS loved 4 ohms and high current. So I googled and found a review by Steve Guttenberg on Emotiva "budget" Amp BasX A300. Matched that with Emotiva PreAmp PT-100 and that put me in basement entry level of "High-End" listening.

Point is...I learned (a lot) from avsforum members, that the Maggies need their own dedicated Stereo system and lots of tweaking to show their stuff. As a final note, Stereophile review states..."When I set them up in my little 10' by 13' by 9' (130 square foot) room, they sounded dramatically more relaxed and fleshed out tonewise. It was immediately clear: the LRS prefers small rooms."

Good Luck (and good listening) on your quest torii.

the nad amps were bought with idea of them being surround amps as I researched an amp for front three. that was 3 years ago...I need to get off my butt and listen to some amps. or maybe spend a day or 3 setting up lrs proper with audyssey, amp gains, etc....or un bridge my amps and setup with one amp on focals and one for lrs. keep focals as speaker A and LRS on speaker B. or lastly just dont play so loud

yea, my body was numbed up when I played too loud. dont know why every so often I just need to jam. it sounds so clear and live. ofc not when I burn my hand resetting tripped amp due to so freaking hot lol. then reality strikes, did I just blow my amp...
