about as big as they get.
It runs SE driven by a 6EM7. I thought I'd build an amp with the biggest tube available.
There is still the GM100 to try.
have a look at my blog....

as for the FE206... don't know. I chose it because they'd match up pretty nicely on paper.
But then again... on paper the no baffles don't work either..

Just try it out, the sound is amazing.
Randy convinced me quickly to make a pair.
And since he already used wood, I thought brute steel would be the way to go.
I'll let the rust in the garden for a while, (without the drivers) I just love the the color of rusted irons and steel..

Default Orion 4

Major changes in the bass section. SL seems to prefer using the force cancellation of W-Frame dipole.

It is their first showing at RMAF 2010

Default Legis - the Peerless midwoofers:


Iím very interested in your line array -
What model Peerless are they, over what Hz range, how many (the picture is no longer available); and how are they wired, to run at what ohms load to the amp?

I heard the new Orions at RMAF, I thought they sounded really good (my first time hearing any version of the Orions). While I was in the room, SL mentioned that he's working with Seas to get woofers more appropriate for this role. He said something like "Don't go out and buy the drivers I have in here, I'm just using the best of what's currently available".

something that has always interested me with the orions how were the highs i.e. with the front and rear facing tweeters could you notice anything different?

Different compared to what? Like I said, this was my first time hearing the Orions. I never got to sit in the sweet-spot chair, but even from off to the side, they did one of the best disappearing acts of anything I heard at the show. The dynamics were excellent too.

The few times I was in there, they were playing orchestral classical music. I didn't hear any vocals, or drums / upright bass / stuff like that. So take my comments in that context. I thought the highs were great with the music I listened to. The bass was more than adequate, but maybe if I'd heard some bass guitar or drums or piano, I might have changed my mind on that.

Also, as you can see in the picture (which appears to be taken by a friend of mine, so I was in the room when this was taken ), there were no wall treatments, and I don't remember seeing any bass traps either. It was encouraging to hear how good these speakers could sound in a fairly normal hotel room, which is actually a pretty bad room. Most other rooms had at least bass traps, and drapes / rugs over the paintings, some actually had absorption / diffusion on the walls as well.

Fair enough, i was just asking in case you had heard some other dipole particularly ones that don't try to augment the tweeter and make it a kind of dipole arrangement. Thank for the reply.

Default my little aliens

Are done!!
and they sound terrific too!
They could do with a bit of suipport in the low.
I measured and under 80Hz there is not much going on anymore.
Might need to move my Klipsch eckhorn upstairs...
The high is taken care of by a fostex FE103 and the low by a 305.
The sound is absolutely amazing!!!




this is my listening, experimenting room.....
lot's of fun there
