Do you think that an OB would do in such a room? If so..what sizes would you suggest for the baffle and for the bass driver(s)?

Hi Roberto,

I must say you have quite a huge room and very high celings as well. Unfortunately I don't have much experience with Feastrex in OB configurations.. but I would think the Basszilla type approach would be fine in your room..

Black Dahlia Acoustics - Loudspeaker Kit Plans

Another approach you can look into is the Feastrex in the standard BR cabinet but add a subwoofer.. This combination if done right can also sound really good.

Cheers,

William

Hi Tuyen,

Thanks for the pictures.. I'm sure you had a great time with all those equipment there... I'm most curious about their power amplifer.. I think it's a quite a high power Single ended power amplifer... what your impression of that amplifer. Thanks

Hi Tuyen,

Nice! Are your Feastrex the D5nf alnico or the Nf5ex field coil?

Hi tuyen,

What are the dimensions of your speaker cabinets - are they the same as on the Feastrex Web Site?

Tom
