Jparker: Looks like we have similar systems. I also run a Yamaha amp with split adapter in the LFE for two subs. Works great...

I listen to all types of music including Classical, easy listening, country, pop, really everything except Heavy metal and Rap... One of my favorites is Enya on my system. The speakers disappear and I'm surrounded by mystic aural bliss.

One thing I've wondered about, and maybe you can share your experience on this - does the upfiring driver give an aural presentation on symphonic music that conveys more of the full size and scale of the experience rather than a miniturized version. Also have you experimented with the speaker placement enough to say how close to the wall the speakers can be placed without muddying up the sound? Thanks.

With the upfiring driver you get a more aural, wide open soundstage. I have the Alpair 2s in a simple BR enclosure and when comparing, they have a much more forward, narrow presentation then the Bi-poles. For critical listening and audio mixing ( my dad works in a recording studio) the single driver is better as it gives you a little better detail and focus. That's not to say the Bi-pole isn't detailed, it presents every nuance the same as the BR does... just with less focus. The Bi-pole excels in soundstage, dynamics and fills the room with music.

As far as speaker placement, I have mine 2 feet from the back wall and 3 feet from side wall with good results. I tried placing them 1 foot from back wall and didn't notice negative results... With the dual driver, it is not picky and makes it easy to place...

I don't want to hijack your thread and take up anymore of your time. I'll get 7.3s,10.2s and Fostex FE206Ens and try them in different size bass reflex just to give me a "general" idea of the speakers. The Fostex simply because I'm curious about the design. I will listen to Enya myself to see what is what. I'll just get all three and compare. That's what it is all about anyway. Thank you 11opas you have been a big help and your system an inspiration.

jparker,

The Fostex FE206En will not work well in a BR cab - it is designed for horns; the cabinets will be big and more complex to build. Also as this is the MA forum, the rules are not to discuss other drivers and designs - the main FR forum is for that.

11opas, sorry for OT discussion on your thread.

Hi Chris,

I love those MLTL's, just gorgeous! I know its a subjective question, but if you run them full range without the sub what sort of bass extension and quality do you get from them? I think they may do me nicely full range in a smaller room as I'm not a bass-freak!
