HPotter: Is that a hole I'm looking at ..... on that beautiful floor ......... to route the power cords and interconnect? You must have a very good reason to do that!? No offense.

I run dedicated 30 A lines to both monoblocks and running thick wires on the floor would be inconvenient. I decided to run them in the basement so the hole had to be made. BTW I installed the floor myself so the damage wasn't that important.

The speakers are open baffle using Focal Audiom 12" and 15" woofers, Triangle midranges and Raven R1 ribbons. I made many speakers before but those are absolutely best sounding. I wouldn't make closed box enclosure again. The base is so natural and deep and there is so much detail to be heard. Midranges don't use crossover on the bottom, they go down naturally at around 80 Hz. I use active crossover on the woofer (based on Threshold crossover).

.... and you have "finalized" the placement of the speakers........ to drill the hole at that particular location? Location of speakers ain't going to change for a long long time, I suppose?

They've been standing in that particular spot since 1996.

Peter: Saw your pictures in Passdiy. I have to ask ..... what do you do for a living? Nothing to do with audio, right? The stuff you built looks better than commercial products!

That is probably because I don't do it for living.

Default Triangle midranges

Peter,
I am wondering which Triangle drivers you use in your impressive speakers. I have a pair of Triangle 13cm and a pair of 16cm. I will try to match one pair with Magnepan 40" true ribbons as soon as I receive my electronic xover. I am wondering if the T13 or the T16 will be best. Are the Triangles used with an open baffle as well?

I will use my REL subwoofer for bass. The T16, TZ200 triangle tweeter and REL Storm subwoofer made a wonderful combo with true to life pipe organ realism. I just built two Tripath amps that will enable me to bi-amp.

Guy
