@ Perry , you should at least try the "Leonidas XO" on your set.
In my experience ( I did almost every XO possible) mini dsp sounds "artificial" ,
My XO topology is more "musical".

Quick and dirty open baffles made with my old CSS FR125 fullranges and long throw 8" woofers picked up at Burning Amp from Speaker Dude(thanks again!). The baffles are a shelf from the hardware store cut in half. A DCX 2496 handles the crossover duties.
They sound better than they should and can completely disappear. The bass is quite good but the bottom octave needed to be cut due to power and excursion limitations.
Also, they were much further from the wall when they were playing.

Hi Leon,

Unfortunately I missed this year X-fi show.

Although I follow the PAP speaker thing/project it took me some time to connect you (Leonidas) to the Leonidas XO, haha.

This is the cherry on the cake !!

just best of both worlds.

So now I have a reel custom design.

I wanted to stay within the PAP platform.
For the moment the AMT runs on an add-on XO for the Leonidas XO.

I will do a complete new Leonidas XO 3 way in future.

Enjoy the music everybody ( I do !!)

sinc. Leon.
Sucky decicion, mate. AMT suck b#@%s. At least my Beyma 150.

These don't qualify as OB as your upper driver is in a IB?

^?? Infinite Baffle is practically in-wall mounting. PSz has quite ordinary Open Baffle setup.

Hello Leon,

Took a look at the PAP link. My question now is: what exactly is the Clio measurement in picture 10 (of the picture show) showing?

Regards,

Eelco
