Would that make it very suitable for OB?

The A&D R1524 was used in my: 'Volks-OB' without EQ and went down to about 40 Hz level.

Played side by side it is striking how similar AE IB15 and A&D R1524 sound giving a tight, clean bass of exellent quality.

Default Polarity

Albertli

The negative polarity for the tweeter is correct. The phase tracking is better and the current issue of the Vifa driver works much better with the reverse polarity configuration. John

Hello everyone,

How about Marantz receivers or particularly the PM8003 2 channel 75 wpc For the original Manzanita? I have a small office room with at least 24" from the corner/side walls.

Thanks!

Do the Manzanitas have problems with poorly mastered, overly loud rock and metal?

Default Marantz & Metal

Marantz 75 wpc receiver. For most listeners, in most domestic environments the Marantz should do just fine.

As for heavy metal music, with 100 clean wpc available, a pair of Manzanita's will deliver about 100 db of peak output from about 40 hz up. Or put another way, about 93-96 db continuous out put at a typical listening distance in a typical residential setting. Suspect that is not enough if you like it really loud!

Hope the above is of some help. John
