Default Tanken 1808 (Tang Band 1808)

I just wanted to say thanks to Dave Planet10 for his help with this and instead of writing everything twice ( I may be commiting a sin by doing this) want to post link to final outcome. Login

I am very happy with the sound. The drivers are getting easier and easier in the top end. I will need to look at a way to tame a little off the top, but the low end is great, better than my Fostex 225 Half Changs, and similar to my TB 1772 in the Half Chang. I will write more this weekend.

Yes they are subs, but they are for the kids theater and are not connected to the Virtue amp. They are just dedicated for the in walls (NHT 3 and 4 plus NHT 3 in surrounds/back.

You might be hearing the lift from 1.5khz to 3.5khz. I dare say most of us don't mind a little lift past 5khz. And at my low listening levels, it is required.

do you have any baffle step ?

Very nice looking speakers you have there !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Norman, you are correct on the plot graph, but when you look at 1k through 20k, there is a significant 11 db rise, which needs to be taken care of. There are things in the works to do this, but now i'll have to settle for what it is. I currently have NO bsc circut in there. I was looking at a 1MH and 3 ohm R later on. Need to order those parts.
