First impressions is that the horn is way better than the ScanSpeak dome and I also expected this as I tested a set of Mundorf AMT earlier - just putting the AMT on top of a speaker also with ScanSpeak dome in the original speaker. Second most significant impression is the bass extend - it is enormous and very physical... not really surprising now that I am using dual 18" drivers and very big boxes. It really performs effortless.

The overall headroom makes the system capable of larger dynamic range without changing tonal balance and without increased distortion - at the moment the limiting factor is the things that didn't rattle with the ScanSpeak boxes, but now they do

My concerns of the midrange drivers are none existing any more - 18Sound 6NMB420 performs beautiful in this configuration and I have the option to cross them between 300Hz and 500Hz to the Sica 10" drivers. The Sica driver will never be overloaded in this configuration and I also have a wide crossover region to the sub - 60Hz to 100Hz or even more.

Hi Robert,

Good to hear that you are satisfied with the results. The speakers sure look nice! And yes, the Beyma TPL-150H is excellent - I wish they made a GIANT version of this drivers loading down to 500 Hz or so.....

Best regards
Peter

Just fill-in 2 x 18sound 6NMB420 like I have done - you can't hear the transition - it's very smooth here.
You have to pay me a visit some day

@ Peter - if you wait to June or July I am sure the system is finished by then. I have to concentrate on the High End Show in Munich from now on - so no more real fun till after the show.

Thanks Dan - I can give you the recipe if you like

Hi Robert,

No need to hurry! But next time I will get to "Nordsjælland" I may give you a call to see whether a brief visit fits into your plans. It would be fun! Good luck to you at the High End Show in Munich!

Best regards
Peter
