Ah - the good old battleship grey Cambridge Audio livery. It was panned by the reviewers, as were the buttons on the CD player (they described them as reminiscent of poking dead flesh). Very unfair, b

R5s arrived:  

I dunno, can i post this here? The leather was just an idea - making some matching wood pulls would be cool - maybe when things die down at M&O of course my speaker cables are too short

I'm hoping the next M&O joint is a turntable stand, with record storage underneath. I haven't discussed this with Milo yet.

Remember that you have a friend that can cut fancy shapes in wood that would be painful if done by hand...

I bet that sounds pretty good when the car isn't up on the gigantic hydraulic lift!

That's just additional room treatment.  Sedans are more laid back, SUV's a little forward in the mids, and 4x4's bass heavy.

What about hatchbacks?

Hatchbacks, I don't know about hatchbacks. I like hatchbacks, Joe wanted to ban hatchbacks. For 8 years Joe tried to ban hatchbacks. I stopped that. The country loves hatchbacks, but Joe tried to ban them. Now we have the greatest hatchbacks ever, that's because I stepped in and stopped it. I designed new hatchbacks myself. Some people think that was Ford and Chevrolet, but it was me. I made the greatest hatchbacks the world has ever seen. Joe wanted to ban hatchbacks, but I stopped that.

I don't know how handy you are, but if memory serves Ikea has similar legs for sale. Some 1/2" Baltic birch plywood, a sheet of Black laminate and you can create a very nice desk built to your specifications.

Definitely Ikea.  I want to say, Lack?  I know they will make a desk exactly like that in their custom shop, but I'm turboskint, so opt for their prefab options.

Edit:  no, definitely not Lack, but I'm not sure they still make the one I have.  Try here:

Yeah, that would work, but unfortunately they seem to have discontinued Fredrik. They do have some others that look suitable, if I can just find them in stock at one of the 2 Chicago Ikea stores.

Thanks though!

Has anyone listened to a system with the Acoustic Elegance dipole woofers? I was looking for a high Qts OB driver and ran across them.

I use the ones that Siegfried Linkwitz specified for the LX521 - the SEAS L26RO4Y XM004-04. Although this is a 10" effective unit, two are used in a W-frame firing in opposite directions and wired antiphase. The idea is that non-linear distortions are effectively cancelled. Two of the SEAS units has an effective radiating area rather larger than the 12" AE one.

One thing you have to watch with OB bass drives is wind noise (yeah, yeah!). So for large excursions, which you always have with the EQ needed for OB units, if the back of the driver is inadequately vented you hear a chuffing noise. That is entirely absent in the SEAS unit.

That is not such a big issue with drivers used in boxes, but for OB it is a biggy. Worth asking AE about this specific point before putting your hand in your pocket.

Why do you specifically want a high Qts by the way?

There is quite a lot about OB EQ on SL's website here https://www.linkwitzlab.com/models.htm

Regarding Qts, he makes the point that ~0.7 is desirable (hence your comment about high Qts I guess). But since you can EQ that as well, even with a low value.

Yeah, I would run them in a modified H-Frame which will behave like a Slot Load (so open back part of the H and the front part would be angled down into a wedge). The AE drivers are made for OB and have the desirable properties you mention plus sensitivity that can easily match a full range driver... even available in 16 ohm impedance.

I'd definitely go the M-frame route from that website. Sure you need two drivers per side, but you get the benefit of (at least to first order) distortion cancellation. These were mine during building maybe 5 years ago.

How directional are these? Specifically, if the solid sides “faced” the listener
