The bass was lighter but musical detail was strong. For example, you could actually here the subtle definition and nuance in a cello recital.

I've also head some nice ported reflex boxes recently using Alpair 6M's.

Much depends on what individual audio folks want from their low range. Personally, I'm likely never to use a sub. I know how they're designed and built. Subs are mostly air movers, essentially they are only pistonic with little (or none) actual radial emittance from their cone surface. However, if you're into heavy rock, house or similar music that generates a heavy rhythmic thumpy thumpy signal, then a sub is best for this purpose.

Hope this helps.

So if you don't use a subwoofer what do you use for movies and classical music or pipe organ? I was wondering if you found a new way to get (LF) with out a sub woofer? Mr. Jeff

Jeff, its not so much heavy, it is the other thousand speaker pairs already upstairs. I've been wondering about some sort of storage space so that we can reclaim the dining room.

finished veneering and applying a seal coat (4 actually) on my stand mounters. One more light sanding and then my final finish and I'll be in the home stretch!

Vaughn, from the pic it looks like the speaker is standing on an inverted base of a Microtower - or am I mistaken?

I'm impressed, you should be a detective! Those are some Microtowers I picked up on a whim.

I built a pair too, some time last year; so I recognized the profile of the base and the "legs".

Wow... didn't know that 21st century edition was faithful to the original to that level of detail. Looks like Dave and ChrisB did a thorough job!
