You can't... but if the surrounds are still holding together on your advents they would probably make good active woofers to augment the Fostex....

i've re-surrounded them last year. I have several drivers to make a suwoofer out of so i don't need to scrap the advents... basically what i'm asking is if these fostex speakers will be more detailed, more accurate, and have better imaging. in other words, will they sound better.

well, i have to say i'm all the more excited about this project

what do you think about using them nearfield and having a subwoofer cover the low end? could they work on a desk or near one if they are in a bass reflex design or should i just make floorstanding ones?

Sure they would -- sealed (or aperiodic if you want a smaller) box XOed to sub(s)

what x/o frequency and box size do you think would be good for that?

A box between 3 & 10 litres with an XO of 150 to 115 Hz....

wouldn't 110hz make the sub position directional? what do you think? would it be hard to drop the x/o to closer to 80?

possibly... the numbers i chose were based on the roll-off of the sealed sats.

It is nearfield -- there is likely a desk between you and the sub... most nearfields are XOing to a mono woofer at 150-250 Hz... a better solution is 2 woofers.

i guess i'll have to think about this more carefully. these boxes will be pretty big for a desk anyway. I don't want stand mounted ones because i'm going to make dedicated monitors. maybe i'll just make some nice looking angled floorstanders and stick them in the corner. i like some of the designs earlier in this thread .
