Great that you like them

You should notice the difference between 6 x 15" woofers per side and 36 SB65's

Any pics of the final in room setup?

Thanks! Pics and measurements will be coming when I get the space cleaned a bit also they are a bit too close to the side wall but this is the only place they can go.

Yes, big difference between the 36 SB driver, 2x15" OB, single 18" OB, 4x12" sealed ect. and 6x15" OB per side. The 6x15" OB per side simply sound different. Either room loading or surface area or both but they sound like unlimited OB subs+bass. It really is something. Clean is the word that keeps coming to mind, although since its OB I'm sure they are distorting, but it must be the good distortion!

Awesome build! Looking forward to further developments. Has a lot of potential to be a very high resolution system. Great choice on components.

How far off the back wall are these going to be? Some damping or diffusion behind the mids might get your imaging cleaner without detracting from the "boxless" sound. At least that's what I noticed when playing with open baffle.

Thanks for the tip! Currently they are 3 feet from the front wall but only 15" off the side wall (LA OB woofers closest to the wall, mids and tweeter on the inside). There is some bad stuff (TV and screen) between the speakers. It is a multifunction room so no choice here.

Had some dampling panels on the front wall behind the speakers but had to move them out as they were better suited in another location. I should order a few more or temporarily move them back for some testing. I do have damping on the side walls though.

If the woofer panels can be rotated the side nulls can be manipulated to try and mitigate the less than ideal placement. Worth some experimentation if you haven't already.

Thanks! I don't listen to music as loud as the next guy but when cranked there is no motor noise as far as I can tell. Cone movement is minimal when loud even with no High Pass filter installed on woofer section. My mic is not calibrated to absolute level but will get some distortion sweeps done at high SPL someday.
