Not impressed with LS3/5A both KEFs and B&W of same time sounded better. As for KK using LS3/5A for evaluating the subbass performance of various SS amps tells more about the level of sense in the man than the level of bass performance

A good replace is the "Studio 5FR" from Fane Acoustics, but not it's successor
Fane :: Fane Studio 5FR 4? ONLY 74.99

KEF B110 REPLACEMENT SP1003. FALCON F B110 8 ohm. PAIR. MADE IN UK.

Hi,

Though I tend to agree that the Vifa 5.5" P13WH-00-08 is the classic small mid bass.

rgds, sreten.

The Stirling crossover boards are indeed set up for bi-wiring.

If you don't like a delay circuit, my Scandivifias use the same drivers without such a circuit, but you have to use a truncated pyramid.

Figured I'd better post my results in contrast...

There was some HVAC noise present in the room where the measurement was taken, and the plot should be good to 500Hz or so....

You have to ask yourself if the LS 3/5A is so fantastic why are so many people so eager to unload them on ebay? An XT24 TG30-04 Tweeter & a Silver Flute W14RC25 in a reflex tuned slot labyrinth [my coin for an advanced wide band reflex tuning design] with this crossover

X over for prototype 001.jpg

will EAT an LS 3/5A in every performance criterion for breakfast forget it by lunch time & turn it into a nicely coiled stool just before dinner. This is my LOWEST performing speaker that would end up as a rear in my future surround sound system. Any takers for a blind listening test to compare your LS 3/5A to this in my neck of the woods? LS 3/5A'S are Nice speakers in the same way that a vintage Merc is nice, but compared to a modern Merc there is simply no comparison performance wise. But if you love that vintage sound go the Falcon they should give superior sound without the stupid S/H pricing for the original
Cheers the path
