Mr. italynstylion - how would compare these to your coniston^2s?

The cabs with the el166 and ert tweeters is more detailed and has better dispersion. One thing I will say is that the coniston^2 has a very nice stage presence. The side firing driver really brings life to the room. Bass response is good on both but more controlled on the el166 drivers really just because of the cone area advantage

Thanks - kind of what you'd guess I suppose. I like the side firing idea and the ambience it would provide even though it may make some purists cringe which I also find enjoyable.

Ehhh, to be honest I think it might be closer to "real" than a normal speaker. Live music, being sang or made with instruments, doesn't project in only one direction. So saying a speaker that projects in multiple directions is wrong by design doesn't seem to be 100% accurate in my book. I think that a lot of these different designs all have something unique about them that's beneficial and that's what makes them special.

I agree with that. I should have more correctly said those who consider themselves to be purists. I worked with a few of them at a high-end retailer in Houston back in the 70's. Their nostrils would flare at any attempt to add ambience. Of course they hated Bose but so did I ,not because of the concept but because they were junk and I had to fix (or totally rebuild) them.

Steve,

This system is bi-amped?

Nope, single pair of binding posts with a final impedance of 8ohms if I recall correctly. I don't have this set in my home anymore (gave them to a friend) so I can't pull the crossovers and look at them. My friend who did the design for the crossover has been very busy lately with work but I'm trying to catch him when he's got a free moment.

Is there any particular reason the mid-tweet is between the woofs? Thinking about moving the top woofer down and the mid-tweet above it and mounting another mid-tweet on top facing up. Thoughts?

Jimbro,

Probably to reduce lobing issues. Tweeter and woofer centers cannot be too far apart. Please refer to Planet10's post # 839 of following thread:

Mar-Kel70 in Sweden

If Dave is reading this please chime in.
