Best I've heard (for midrange) is still the JBL LE8T in a mid-size vented box.

Hi Don,

It is my intention to have something worthwhile ready for the trip North to the frozen tundra of Vancouver Island. I've finished, well nearly anyway, my drywall/ painting project and only have some trim work around the windows, doors and etc., before I get my shop organized and can start on the "Secret Weapon Project!"

Best Regards,
Terry

Scott,

Your optimism is cheering, but IMHO... unwarranted.

I'm reminded of my youthful impression upon finishing Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, that I'd actually seen, in the living flesh, nearly every one of the characters he had written about.

Going back, perhaps a bit further, for some commentary on Politicians:

"Hark! Hark! The dogs do bark,
the beggars are coming to town!
Some in rags, some in tags.
And some in silken gowns!"

Extinct? I would say they're only in remission.


Best Regards,
Terry

OK, the bass is not great, for the time being I am running a subwoofer with them. But some day I will do something about that.... ;-)
I have a taller version, and if you can put up with the
height (72"), you will get more bass.

The vintage light cone drivers are inexpensive and overlooked. Grundig are my favorite so far. They are ugly but they sound so much better than the modern production speakers ie Audio Nirvana, Fostex, Dayton, JBL, Tangband and Eminence. They could be described as fast, real and emotionally involving.
