still be done as a "custom project"... but it would be facing a similar adjustment as the BMR did. It would be great if this were so, as the 3s are easily a top notch speaker worthy of a continued existence!
Another note I'd like to add: When I auditioned the 3s at dude's home, he told me he had BMRs previously, but moved them on to a family member because he was worried about his kids toppling a 32# speaker off a stand onto themselves. His words, paraphrased: I love the 3's, don't get me wrong, but there are some things the BMRs do better. I think I am beginning to understand what he meant, and it may very well be in relation to my post discussing the set-up issues and the nature of the BG Planar as a dipole source. The BMR driver, being a conventional monopole source... it makes sense to me that this would be the reason for what he said. I am going to play around with A/B-ing the 3s and BMRs after I get these big boys dialed in a little better.
Regardless... Miles In The Sky
and In A Silent Way
sounded better than ever yesterday after resetting the 3's to the new position. I know many good things are still to come!
