Tekton Vs. DIYSG Vs. pro cinema speakers.

Hello fellas
I been really interested and intrigued in tekton flagship speakers very cool looking
Tekton 1812, ulfberht etc
Also jbl 4722 or something different
DIYSG 1899, and Titian 615lx
For 50/50 music,HT

The 4722 1899, Titian 615lx seem like beast but worried about them for music I don’t know if the tekton would have the advantage?

Most important attributes
Dynamics
Bigger then life sounding
Details
Smooth sounding not harsh

Might buy the lores wit the BE tweeters to try tekton out and 2channel listening.

There is a huge difference in the proposals and it would be difficult or impossible to find anyone that has actually listened to all three possibilities. The DIYSG Titan has all the makings of a fine LCR loudspeaker - constant directivity for less room interaction, wide dynamic range, high sensitivity, smooth frequency response, reasonably easy to drive... Matched with DIYSG Volt 8 surrounds and height channels, a very capable home theater is only $2500-3000 away. There is a considerable amount of work in assembling such a system. Each of the home theaters that I have constructed from DIYSG kits, a 5.2.4 system based on the Fusion 8 Alchemy/Volt 8 and a 7.2 system with the (now retired) Fusion 15 Sentinal/ Fusion 10 Pure/Volt10, took 30-40 hours for assembly and finishing. Purchasing the flat-pack cabinets and assembled crossovers should be considered mandatory for those without a fully equipped workshop. Achieving a level of finish most people would find sufficient for use in a darkened home theater environment (e.g. Duratex or vinyl wrap) is not very difficult or expensive. Wood veneers and high gloss finishes greatly increases the cost and complexity of such a project. The benefit is savings - a comparable system based on either the JBL 4722 or one of the larger Tekton designs would cost far more.

I'd buy the diysg kits and spend the remaining budget on equipment like processor and amplifiers.

Pioneer Elite SC-85 | RBH R-515 LCR | Morel Surrounds | DIY 12" Infinity Subs w/ Inuke 3000

2 CH - Realistic STA-2100D | Realistic Optimus 5-B (restored) | Marantz AT 6 | Sony CDP-CE375

I had the 1099s then sold them big mistake. I love diysg stuff. Looking for something that might sound best. The 1899s I realized don’t have a kit which is going to make it harder for me and more time consuming and take longing to get ready over the Titian’s but will they be worth the extra hassles and time over the titans in the end. The jbl s are bigger then titans but are ready to go plug and play pretty much. The tektons are definitely easier on the eyes then the rest. I have some equipment now I have a theater for now. Just looking for something in my living room that I can listen to music on and then eventually use in theater. I’m leaning towards the titans I think wondering if anyone has done upgrades to it? Maybe extra woofer or “better parts”?

You haven't heard the Titans and you already want to improve them?

If you find the Titans are not enough you can upgrade to Dual woofer Titans.

Upgraded in what way? I know I seen someone talking about BE CD? But some say it’s not worth the cost? What are you running now a days MK?
