They are in almost the same place as T2W was, a little closer to the wall and closer to eachother, but since they need running in I have not been so specific with placement, I do not use any spikes or other feet yet, I will try that out when they are ready for it. From what I hear now I think it will work just fine.

I am now testing a Pass Labs XA30.8 amplifier with D7. Sound is not at all good right now . The amp stinks of some kind of electronic smell and the speakers are probably not "ripe". I hear qualities but the bass is not working yet. I hope to be able to borrow the Pass as long as possible and let it "burn in".

Yes, but, I'm only asking about the bass/lower midrange, specifically - how did that part of the sound compare...

Also, the sound of different amps should be basically insignificant, relative to the differences between different speakers.

The bass got a little heavier when without stands, midrange not that much different.
Regarding amps, it is a big difference between the pass and my amp, very easy to hear actually. But also my new speakers are clearly more detailed and fast compared to T2W.
The XA30.8 got better the more I played it, but bass control was not optimal with D7. I think it wants more power to get that bass control I want.

I finally decided to get a XA30.8, it works quite good with D7. But just for fun I adjusted my tired2way speakers a little (I removed some of the wood material inside to get a bigger volume) for better bass balance. I then connected it to my pass labs amp and it sounds very good, much better now than earlier, in fact so good I wonder if the D7 will stay . To be honest I have also changed the speaker cables to the much better Chord Sarum and that also is part of the change. D7 plays more exact but not as relaxed as T2W, and I get more "slam" in the bass with T2W, I think that D7 may need more power than XA30.8 gives to get the same amount of "slam" but I really like the XA30.8. I will now live with the T2W in the system for some time and then change back to D7 again. What will the final verdict be I wonder....

Hello Salas .
Yes they have a few surprises built in it seems .
Maybe I should have taken your advice to build bigger speakers myself.
I will try some to me well known recordings and evaluate some things.
My biggest concern is the "beaming" from the woofer, I know it can be heard with some recorings, but maybe it is not very annoying now with better equipment, I remember listening to the ABBA singer "Agneta" it was easy to hear that "beaming", I will try it tonight. What is impressive to me is how good the T2W answers to better equipment.

What I heard as beaming was probably my old amp struggling with voices, with the pass it is not a problem anymore. I listened to the album "Super Trouper" and it works very good with the female singers.
