They can get pretty satisfyingly loud. I place them above my 10F/RS225 TLs which sound big, and these sound surprisingly similar in scale and voicing. They lack the bass of course.

At 84dB 1m and 2.83v that’s 1w, if we go to 64w that’s 6 doublings at 3dB each or 18dB more. 84dB + 18dB = 102dB max.

They really are meant for small rooms or near field monitors - similar to the intent of the LS3/5A. For desktop computer or mixing monitors, they sound great. Very neutral and balanced voice and tone.

Hi xrk,

Great looking enclosures! I would agree with you that they are best for small rooms/nearfield use, in my case they also want big power amp with big reserve of power...

I end up buying Crown XLi800 for them, just great transparent sound form this entry-level crown... I would never imagine that PA Amp can compete with audio grade gear but you never know until you try it for yourself!

XRK, do you plan for a 3-way, the "Foamage" with the 8" Dayton TL ?
