So, three years is a long time to wait, and a lot of things have happened since the last post, some of it quite personal. I'll put it all up in sections, so if there's a bit you're not too interested in, its easy to skip.
, because hey, this is an audio forum.
I arrived at Uni with my Fostex & Tang Band FAST speakers: a bi-amped setup of a FE126eN and a W6-1139 a side, 500Hz crossover. They were used for parties occasionally in the shared area of the flat in first year, and then I bought a subwoofer - JBL GTO1214 in one of those pre-fabricated car sub boxes, since that was all I could get hold of at the time. Power was a Samson Servo-550 for that.
I used that lot for a while until I realised that the Fostex drivers have a lot of distortion when you increase the volume, which throws the sound well out of balance.
Found a pair of Behringer B2031P monitors and have been using those since. Much better for what I want, though they still...
