Audio Nirvana Super 6.5. Actually, this one needs a smaller Vb than the standard, so it offsets the extra cost of the drivers. Which is nice.

Line length 133in
Zdriver 26.75in
Terminus area 105in^2

OK, for those of you with ballrooms and who listen in the farfield.

Audio Nirvana Standard 8. I've finally decided to say to hell with it, and given them the full line length needed rather than trunkating. Why compromise, I say?

Line length 170in
Zdriver 34in
Terminus area 168in^2

And for the Super 8, for those in need of 'help.' Perhaps, if you painted these 8in types in the classical style, you could get away with it by suggesting they are your new lounge pillars in the Egyptian, Greek, Roman or whatever style. You'll need a pretty tall chair, or a very big room though. ;-)

Line length 180in
Zdriver 36in
Terminus area 168in^2

Have fun!

Scott

Very nice. I find pine takes a coloured wax quite nicely too, and I've had good results with linseed oil. Although it's not much fun when the rags you forget to drop into a bucket of water suddenly take it into their heads to make like a match...
