Thanks Hugh!

Specs for the beryllium tweeter says 90 watts for 100 hours: http://www.scan-speak.dk/datasheet/pdf/d3004-664000.pdf

And even though that is with an x-over, it still tells that this is a sturdy driver

All wiring is now in place, and I have connected and am playing with all NAKSA 100 modules - but still feeding them from the Behringer x-over. Treble/mid is still passive.

The NAKSA 100s certainly sound powerful, but are also somewhat rough-edged. But then they are straight out of the box, so ...

Hi Hugh,

Yep, that's what I'm expecting - based on other people's experiences

Right now just trying to run them as much as possible!

Cheers,

Jens

Hi Hugh,

Already improving

Even though the N100s are "just" powering the bass sections, there is an expansion of the soundstage. The other night, I was listening to a superb recording of the world's largest pipe organ, the Wannamaker organ at Macy's in Philadelphia, and I have never ever heard the room so well-described

I believe the limitation right now is the Behringer x-over, and I'm looking forward to getting the Groundsounds going!

Cheers,

Jens

Well since I was in the Wanamaker's Building a couple of months ago, I am curious what you think the room looks like that houses the organ. It is a department store and I never think of sound stage when I am there when the organ is playing. Usually, I only see and hear it near Christmas when they put on the organ and light show.

An odd story. My wife's best friend from her college days is the grand daughter of George Audsley who built the organ. He created some simple paper Christmas ornaments in star shapes and we have a few of them. My wife hangs them up on the tree along with the other baubles every year.

Jens, Ray,

this is interesting....... sound stage is such a difficult idea, isn't it?

Oddly enough I was taught to play the pipe organ at boarding school. I used to practice Bach for hours on a huge Wurlizter with four keyboards, amazing organ, even had a sound effects key that I'd had illicitly cut!
