Pretty room!
Pretty gear!

Imo, way way way too live (reflective) for my listening tastes...

As far as a tapped horn - I'd be concerned about the delay time between it and the ESLs...

1. From what I can see in the picture, that beautiful room (and with pretty gear too) must be very echo'y. Hard to imagine me making speakers sound tolerable to me in that room, not least the MLs, to my ears.... I hope I have expressed my personal opinion of my personal taste in a manner which is consistent with forum standards of courtesy and respect for the fact that others may have very different personal tastes.

2. On motorcycle forums, we have a joke about anybody starting one more dreaded, interminable, inconclusive, and evidence-free thread about motor oils. That's not to say choice of motor oils isn't important but at some point, nobody has anything new to say on the topic. Correct me if I am wrong.

The photo is of "Wardsweb" room, he posts in many audio forums, including this one I think.

He builds some of his own equipment, a very talented person. I'm not sure that that photo represents the last word in room acoustic treatments. Maybe he changed it since the photo was taken.

In my opinion:

1. Seal bass is better tan ported, even for M/L stats.

2. Crossover going into the 500hz midrange is fine, adds some meat to the bones to the normally light or thin stat sound.

The original M/L Aerius did both these things, and I still like it over it's larger more expensive brothers.

One person has mated M/L stats (by-passed the woofers) to older larger Magnepan tympani panels which provide the bass. I do think they are on the right track.
This is my system with Martin Logan Summits (woofers disconnected) along side of Magneplanar Tympani IV bass
panels (modified) with Eminent Technology Trw-17 Rotary
subwoofer.
