Of course not, and hopefully folks here won't think I wasn't intending to imply otherwise. In spite of their inadequacy-inducing nature, I've always admired your huge... tracts of land.

...though I have had the occasional email suggesting that I should spend my time with my own kind, i.e. only post on HE forums, and let others of a similar audio desire come to me/us.
No ****?

How pathetic.

F them. From small speakers to large your input is MUCH appreciated. You double check math, offer suggestions, speak from your experience, etc... stay!

>>> since they assumed I was already mostly deaf from such a huge phallic symbol, with more than one woman wanting to know how many guns I owned...

lol. no ones asked about guns but they all can see my collection of fake guns and knives (for self defense practice), heavy bag, speed bag (which is in the listening room) and various striking pads. My kids and i love to hit stuff!

Yeah, that was a problem initially since I used separates rather than the typical receiver and with no remotes, all I could do was set it all up to turn off/on via the pre-amp's power button except the RTR.

Decor has never been an issue for me, though in my youth I was a 'neat freak', so the electronics, record collection, etc. area tended to look like something out of a mainstream magazine display. Plus, I didn't/don't much like looking at big matte gray or black cinema horn stacks any more than women do, so being corner loaded, they had a full width, ~ceiling height screen hiding them with the fabric chosen to either best blend to the wall's color or at least not clash with it. Even big horns don't intrude much, if any more than a corner china/curio cab and looks like one of today's corner panel absorber array.

Loud is Beautiful if it's Clean! As always though, the usual disclaimers apply to this post's contents.

I agree with Bigun. For most applications, a low power tube amp can work with the smaller 3 inch full rangers, like the tangband drivers. I have used a lowpower SET with them, and got descent volume in a near field setting. But the 5 watt GLOW single ended tube amp drives the Hivi and Aurasound 3 inchers to surprising volume levels. The miniwatt and the small Jolida EL84 push/pull have enough power also.

I like the better dispersion and flatter response of the small FR drivers to the sound of the larger full range drivers. I use a sub to augment at the low end, but let the full range drivers do their thing above 100 hz.

there is always that 8" radian co-axial driver.

use that on an OB and use another 8" driver to supplement bass. could even use it as a large bookshelf speaker.
It is not you... you are it.
