I haven't ordered them yet due to lack of money. However, I plan on getting some and running them full range for computer speakers

I was contemplating picking up a couple, but I just ordered a pair of Extremis 6s, so maybe I'll pick up a pair later, after the pre-order.

They look very nice, but I also ordered a bunch of Extremis. Adire is supposed to be releasing a lot of woofers in the coming weeks, so I will wait to see what they offer. I need the back pair of speakers in a HT setup, I believe these should be pretty good for that. Computer speakers too - good idea. I was thinking about some Auras for that, maybe I will reconsider.

Well, Adire better slow down before I have to default on my mortgage

I am looking at running these full range, but after running some tests filtering out everything above 13khz, I'm not sure I will be totally happy with the result. Anyone have any ideas for a tweeter to mate with these? I was thinking maybe something like the Seas 19TFF that's onsale at madisound (http://www.madisound.com/Sale%20Page...eas%20H586.pdf) or the Audax Gold Dome micro-tweeter (of which I've seen several versions, but little info) that is available for about the same price at Madisound or Solen. I wonder why no one has reported on this Audax micro, when the polymer version seems to get lots of use. Maybe that should be a sign to me.

One appealingly simple alternative would be to build them into fullrange boxes, then install a top-mounted tweeter if necessary - problem is, I'm not sure if there are any good top mounted tweeters, I've only seen Morel and Hi-Vi models, and haven't seen much info about either.

Add me to the "was going to buy them until the Extremis came out" list. I was also thinking of pairing them with the Seas 19TFF or the 19TAF that Tony Gee likes, they look like good choices to me. Creative sound solutions is also designing some MTMS and MT for the Wr125.

Count me in. I ordered 4. No firm plans yet, but I haven't built anything in a long time, and this looks like a good place to start.

RAW: Are those Koda 8's in the bass section? Looks nice.

I'd recomend trying them full range before you rule it out. As long as the intended application keeps them on-axis, I think you will be surprised at how well they do up high. You can always add a tweeter and crossover later if you aren't happy.
