How sensitive are these speakers?

It depend on what head (globe) I use... for example, with the tweeter head I'd say 95db. The upper mid, 91db if your after a flat spl (+/-1.5db). The lower mid is still being tested...

I'm very interested! I'd love the tweeter & midrange combo as long as they're at least 93 dB or higher...

Cheer Thetubeguy1954. Put it this way, there more sensitive that MBL. I'm using a 20watt Class T amp to run them, not an issue!

I have a 40W/ch, Italian, Mastersound Reference 845 integrated, Parallel-SET amp which you can see an actual photo of at this link here:

Congrats On Your NAF 845 Purchase! - thetubeguy1954 - Speaker Asylum

I'd love to use your speakers above either an 18" Hartley driver in an Onken enclosure or perhaps an enclosure similar to the bass section of the Klipsch La Scala. What do you think/suggest?

They would look great on these however that wooden parts are going to be changed to Aluminium, so I don't know if that would deter you from a visual point of view?


Though the Omni builds have come a long way from when I first started, I'm still trying to gauge if there is a potential market for them?

Please post a photo when the wooden parts are changed to Aluminium so I can see. I don't believe it will bother me...
