Default 7o's style rug

Hi Sprags,

Yes the rug is cool! The guy's house was amazing and room acoustics were good, the rug really helps reduce floor bounce.

By the way, the new Daft Punk album" Random Access Memories" is GREAT!!
Enjoy!
Derek.

not that i have anything against tarkuses, i even modeled one once.
Click the image to open in full size.

After a long slog (i do too many projects at once)

Its a pair of tri-amped speakers. used on my front channels(and stereo of course)
i call them "manticore" because i made tarkus before and spent tons messing with the crossover. if you look on the album cover art of "tarkus", manticore kills the tarkus.

tweeter: SEAS 27TDFC with 75uf film capacitor for safety (in case i make a mistake programming)
mid/bass: SEAS ER18RNX
woofer: CSS SDX10

tweeters and mid/bass powered by emotiva upa-500
woofers powered by emotiva upa-200

miniDSP 4x10(2x8 plugin)

the cabinet front is not finished but this is about the speakers. Im using a laptop to program the DSP with, while i make some changes to (this thing) http://imgur.com/a/R5PSO

yeah the phone us usually in the kitchen but i just got a different internet connection and had to get it out of the way.

I am really happy with this. it sounds fantastic, very clear, goes down as low as i can hear very nice sound stage, and lots of audiophool adjectives! and i can make any changes i like without buying new crossover bits.

other people have asked me if the emotivas should be stacked. here they are after being on with the TV on for a few hours and then loud music for a couple of hours.

not bad at all 28.4c is the hottest thing on the picture, and i still haven't put feet on the miniDSP to get it off the vents of the top emotiva.

a cool trick, if you do something like this, and keep your old center and rear channel powered by a reciever, is to adjust the PEQ on the midrange to be wrong in a similar way to your old speakers, and use that miniDSP preset when watching things with surround. it makes the miniDSP powered speakers sound close enough to the old ones that there is no strangeness.

i have:
preset 1: music. everything full flat and REQwizzed as best possible for my room. lots of bass extention, a bit of boost below woofers resonance, which is quite hearable.

preset 2: same as above but "neighbors home" bass is reduced and no "linkwitz" boost below woofer resonance.

preset 3: all out but with midbass altered to sound more like the little polks i have for surround and center speakers

preset 4: same as above but with "neighbor home" on the bass.

as for the emotivas themselves, not bad at all! the price was good enough to get them instead of building a bunch of chip amps or whatever. they have been great so far.

chlorofille: Dinesh what else is new? I see your MTMs. There is some speakers out recently which use TMT on the front and three tweeters at the back. Got a good review.

They are 8'' woofers but have surprising midrange clarity and quick decay. I have the 3Khz peak notched and a big inductor to start an early rolloff for baffle step compensation.
