NoXo, Amazing how two people so many miles apart have ended up with such similar systems, even down to the CD63SE ! When you play your AV system in 2 channel mode do you get the subwoofer supporting the FE206E BR's ? Looked at the pics ..... very nice walnut finish.

Puffin, Piano black finish can be an expensive option in the hi-fi shop ! I admire your patience, well worth the effort you put into it.

I was much lazier than both of you ! My listening loft is low roofed and has matt white walls and ceiling. My wife wanted these (large) speakers to 'disappear' so we painted them in white eggshell. When I say 'we' I mean she did it ! My friend has a digital camera, I'll see if I can post a photo some time soon.

Anybody weighed the FE206ES-R horns ? My bathroom scales claimed 75kg/165lbs. Does this sound about right ?

David, my FE206E`s are in the recommended horns and I sold the BR (Commonsense Audio MKII`s) boxes. With the NAD in 2 channel stereo, the sub comes in at 80HZ in all modes. It reduced excursion and improves power handling and sound quality. I guessed that my FE206ESR horns weigh about 150lbs, so 165 seems right. It is a small world, once you start talking.

If you're running SS into 206s, you'll be over-damping the drivers and causing the bass to roll off, so the 80Hz XO point to the sub[s?] sounds like a good plan to me.

You sold the Commonsenseaudio boxes? Heresy! They're wonderful you know. Really. And horns are terrible. By the way, custard is made from gelignite.

Hi Guys,
I finished painting my 208esigma BLH boxes. They're sitting there and waiting for the speakers to come. I changed my mind to order a pair of 208esigma and a pair of T90A supertweeter. I thought it might be better to go with the original with the box. Hope they will surprise me, and I really look forward to have them compare with my BIB 168esigma.
Albert

Agree with Planet10. Nice finish Albertli. I would be very interested to hear your comparison opinions.

blumenco. Yes I have modded 3 S.I's(well 4 really but I killed one). I thought I would have a bit of fun with the empty cases. Have a look at "supersonic" on Michael.mardis.com the wizard tweakers site. There should be a link here.

Albertli, beautiful job. I`m sure they will sound as good as they look. And Scottmoose, since I sold those BR boxes ($50.00 USD), less than I paid for the veneer, I don`t have anymore commonsense, so I build horns because they`re a challenging woodworking project.
