Maybe for Tool. Most of metal music is poorly recorded and sounds like crap on revealing speakers, at least to me. On the other hand, my friend have all Naim system with Naim Ovator 600 and two Rel subs at the end. Its rock and metal system all the way, very attractive for short listening but tiring for longer
Seems my metal days are over, its still Motorhead, Sepultura and Slayer for me. I have to check those bands you post
Well done! I built my FHs with Alpair 7MS drivers but this makes me even more tempted to put MAOP7s in... the cutouts are identical! I'd probably benefit more from a better amp, but that's a $3000 exercise instead of a $300 exercise.
I think you've illustrated perfectly the level of value these speakers provide. I think the $300 exercise is justified, as it creates the opportunity to build another speaker cabinet for whatever driver you don't end up using in the frugal horn. Of course, I'm already planning on doing this so I have an extremely biased opinion. Thinking about the Maeshowe from the Woden Design page.Now it seems I need to spend 1000’s on headphones to match my horns! I listened to Sennheiser HD800s at a shop many years ago and they were phenomenal, but again, 1000’s!
Got mine from Bob at Big Wood Studio's. Overall was good to work with despite a delay (He had to find a new CNC machine he had access to due to a change in his arrangement). He was really responsive in communicating with. Only thing I adjusted on mine was to chamfer the back of the driver cutout and roundover the two boards that connect internally at the vent.Very nice! Where did you order the flat pack from? Been away from this thread for a long time and forgot who is offering it.
