1. post, link one, Western ... Sato... Klipsch

does sit really sound that way ?
well, I can hear its very 'dynamic', but ... is it good ?

I guess it is impressive for a tube amp to sound like that
but also reminds me a bit of the old days of hard sounding japanese transistor amps ... maybe with less distortion

to me it sounds too much like concrete basement acoustic
but is also why I ask, is that for real, does it really sound like that, or ... ?

The reproduction is good.

I don't see the relevance of the artist or music to this observation, but OK have let's have some fun.

The focal point of that song and my enamoration with those horns is the percussion.

I agree that stomp box would be fatiguing after a while.

EDIT: ..and the bass is boomy etc.

I must agree, they note that that LaScala goes to 20Hz.????Really?...just how long a horn does it take to get to twenty?, the length of a Bus I'd bet...? All the EQ in the world won't get that horn down that low.....As we know horns will drop like a rock past a certain point. There is no control of the waveform once it exits the horn...it is now dependent upon room geometries, making nodes here & there, if your lucky.
One can tweek it up one side & down the other but the math stays firm, no control...no propagation.

I suppose the whole point of the Sato horn, and the key of the system is exstreme sensitivity
combining with the Klipsch is probably very clever
but is it enough to keep up with Sato

how is such a system 'crossed' (xo) ?

A Yamaha D2040 audio crossover.

The lowest playing LaScalas I can find are ones like this one which is claimed to go down to 40-35Hz.
Ported Lascala project

I'm sure there are a lot of other woofer options that would play as good or better anyways.

yeah
but 'ordinary' ported means maybe 95db

and the Sato is what ... 115db

means that the 40hz bass is likely to be maybe 12db down
