But his room acoustics are different and they sounded better in his house. I have heard the Fact 3 just recently as well, both nice speakers.
Yeah; they're different Gar. I assume, neither the 12...nor certainly the 3; had anywhere near the (apparent) bass, of your C2s?
I say apparent
, because the FACT line is very tricky that way. The 12, is rated
...to 26Hz; the C2..."only" 28. Hell, my 3s are said to go as low as 35; but they don't sound it to me. And I'm used to (A)TL, having owned 2 pairs of PMCs previously. The FACTs are just a different animal, from the previous i
-series I owned.
FWIW...the C2 was always Jax's dream speaker. I knew I'd never have the room for them, to run like they should. But the transparency of the FACT line, is addicting. Just like I said, over in the Dyn thread; when I came off the Aerial 6Ts...the FACT 3s came across small, and thin by contrast.
But then...I started hearing all those little cues; and the far expanding soundstage, and it all became worth the trade-off
