Hello Marco,

From memory such topology has been also used to give to the couple of bass loudspeakers a given radiation shape with a off axis of the radiation lobe.

Do you know if with the Everest DD66000 there is a left marked and a right marked enclosures?

Best regards from Paris, France

Yes there is! I own a couple on the iPhone. Even have the calibrated measurement mic for mobile phone that Parts Express sells. Super handy.

Dear Jean-Michel,

as far as I know, both enclosures are identical, and the crossover can be configured by jumpers behind the faceplate so that either woofer can operate as the 'helper' (1st-order low-passed at 150Hz).

By the way: I'm in Paris relatively often... I'd love to meet up for a 'friendly listen' sometime! And of course you're more than welcome to visit me here in London if/when you happen to be around.

Cheers,
Marco

In the baroque period there was a huge overlap. And I agree completely about the virtues of authentic baroque performance practice!

More about this later…

Indeed, it is so.
Yet, not having any formal education in music, I evaluate various interpretations only by my emotional impact, listening to various interpretations.

My favorite composer is Gustav Mahler.
So far, I prefer the conducting/interpretation of Georg Solti. I cannot say why it is so.

Generally speaking, I also prefer baroque performances with authentic instruments.

Barbirolli for me. If you haven' t listened to his Mahler interpretations, I recommend it.

Thank you.
I haven't heard Barbirolli so far. I'll look for LP's or CD's.

Gary Dahl
Hi Gary,

I found your post and thoughts on the subject to be very interesting. No apologies needed here!

Best Regards,
TerryO

Default Question for Gary

Hi Gary,

would you be willing to post your measured parameters of the GPA 515-16C mentioned in your post 10234? I cannot get the same simulated response as you do, so I want to check where I am making a mistake.

Kindest regards,

M
