Just so -it won't fill a ballroom. ;) But it should do nicely in a smaller space if you want wideband, and you can add a quality subwoofer (or preferably two ;) ) if you want the sub-bass frequencies & added dynamic range.

I was considering building the FH3 with MAOP 7, again for metal music. Dual subs will be run. Moderate sized living room - only 9' ceilings.

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

I guess it depends what sub genre of metal you are talking about. Lots of bands I listen to can be found on 7Digital or HDTracks. The ML Motion 40 is not a slouch, and I listen to them for hours just fine. Tool sounds no better or worse than the other bands I listen to. I also wouldn't classify Tool as metal, but that's a different argument.
Metal I listen to: Periphery, Jinjer, Impending Doom, Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, Lamb of God etc. These bands are established and recording with every bit as state of the art equipment as anyone else. Major labels that pay them make sure of it.

Haha, I kinda figured it was that era you were refering to. Yea bands on big labels these days sound good, and assuming you appreciate instrumentals, all the more reason to have a speaker with excellent clarity and separation. Subs should be filling in the lower octaves anyway, for the full effect.

Waiting for the flatpak
 
Thanks everyone for all the information about the frugal horns. I've been lurking a while here and learned a ton.



I have a pair of MA Pluvia PHD and MAOP 7 running in now while waiting for the Mk 3 flat pak from Big Wood Studios. Bob is great to work with so far. Really excited to get these built up and paired with our Dennis Had amps! They only put out 6-8w, but have been pushing some Tannoy Mercury V1's (~86db spl) very, very well.



It's like being a kid again. Will report once built.


Cheers!
