Hi everyone,

Apple's Dotmac service was down for a while this afternoon but it is back now.
So the site should be working again.
I can access it no problem.
However here is the url again just in case

With a down firing port like the Metronome has, would it be advantageous to put a hard reflective surface underneath such as a
marble tile?

It seems to me that a carpet would absorb the lower frequencies.

It's something I've thought about too with mine
but never got around to trying.

The sub fires straight down into the carpet and I
don't seem to be losing any bass power with that

Well I tried a 6 inch square ceramic tile pushed under the base arch of each Metronome directly under the port.

The bass firmed up a touch but the biggest improvement was to the coherence of the mid and top. Imaging, which was already excellent became even better and the sound stage increased in width. The speakers are six feet apart but the image is twelve feet wide!

I don't get how a ceramic tile can give this change in presentation but obviously I'm not complaining

Cool. I wish someone would put together a Metronome site like
the one Zilla made for the BIB. A place to gather all the tweaks and
build pix.

If you using the Metronome on a wooden floor then there should be no need for a hard surface under the port. Just my opinion as I don't really understand what is happening at the moment with the ceramic tile.

Scott's opinion is that providing the speaker is not too far out into the room then you should be able to get away without a BSC circuit.
