One is ready for auditioning. I would have had the other done however the ceiling in my spare room fell down so I have that to contend with atm. Dammit.

Well I've kind of got a crude setup running with a weak second amp and a humming diy crossover. At tiny volume levels my cats **** themselves, windows took up rattling, I feel anti social and the waf has plummeted!

At sensible listening levels its already sounds fairly well integrated. The xo's I think are reducing the line level signal by quite a bit as the volume from the fr drivers is greatly reduced along with a slight reduction in detail in comparison to without the xo's. I'm not using a preamp though which may account for that.

I've put quite a bit of stuffing in the wooft's to tame them too. I think I may even need more but it'll start getting tight in there wiyh much more I believe.

I've been listening for a while now snd the results are pleasing. I realise now I didn't need much lf assistance over the bare alpair 7/mar-ken combo and subsequently I've had the wooft's turned a long way down compared to what they can deliver. They do integrate very well indeed to the point its very difficult to tell you're listening to 6 drivers in total.

The height is a problem. Its clear from the hot seat that they're high up with the sound coming down at you. Placing the mar-kens on their original stands with the wooft's next to them works well.

After all this I suspect I should have originally built a mar-ken with the new alpair 10 gen 3's which I presume would give more lf extension. Maybe with a nice high end tweeter to assist slightly...
