These have been posted before -- the original prototypes -- but with other drivers, here with TangBand W5-1611/

I thought the design was intended to be corner loaded, yet I see few that are in the posted pics - has the corner loading recommendation changed?

Depends on the driver used (and the amount of damping). FE126 likes corners.

For instance, jon's (as in post #32) are now heavily corner loaded with reportedly large improvements in the bottom end (note that there is no longer apair of 15" woofers)

Default The room

Dave is correct that there is a huge improvement due to room form and function. In the first set up the 15's were not used, only for the theater that is in that room. I did add a Triad 10 inch in wall sub that I had extra and it filled the lower end perfect down to 20hz, BUT I am MUCH happier with the sound and frequency output in the bedroom withOUT the sub now. Its perfect. Thinking of adding a usb DAC to the passive pre and Decware amp. Anyone want a Triad 10 powered sub..

Jon
