Med. 2 Way + great acoustics are better than a super speaker or a sub


I got nothing more to say. :)

      Hello Erik,

     Are you referring to Lowther Medallion 2 speakers?  

     Why are you posting in code?  Cut it out, it's annoying and it taxes my walnut sized noodler.

Only in your imagination. :(
Eric, you ALWAYS have something to say ! lol   Any speakers in a room, that is acoustically well planned out to accommodate those particular speakers, with the proper listening seat, will always sound better than a megabuck system just thrown together, without any concern for the room acoustics. If this is what your are implying. I have followed your speaker kit build, and I appreciate you think highly of them, but for my ears, I will stay loyal my tweaked and updated Klipsch Lascalas any day of the week, and my room caters to them very nicely. I have a pair of powered subs that are wonderful from 50 hz down, to complete the package. YMMV. Enjoy ! MrD. 
This is not true.Another great thread!!!
Erik must be contentedly enjoying his system today 😀And feeling smug.
Sorry, what I meant to say is, given a choice, a medium sized 2-way in a great sounding room will outperform all other options in a poor room. 


That doesn't mean I don't envy those who can have it all. A mega speaker, with great acoustics, or a 2-way with great acoustics and a sub. :)

@noble100  Never heard them.

@douglas_schroeder  Please respond with personal experience directly related so we can enjoy your point of view more fully. 

Eric, you ALWAYS have something to say !

@mrdecibel  This past month I've left at least 3 or 4 threads here alone. Entirely.

Hah, but nope, it was more of a head slapping moment when I altered my room acoustics and repeated the "aha!" moment when it all sounds really good again.

Can't really comment on super speakers due to my limited experience, but I would go with a vintage class Ohio sub any day of the week over any single piece of hi-fi gear.  Sadly, even without the nuke missles, I'd have to dip into my retirement savings to afford the upkeep.
there are a awful lot of offal m2w that no amount of room treatment will ever make listenable
@ieales

Name a couple you don't like and a couple you do so we have some sort of frame of reference?

@erik_squires -  " Sorry, what I meant to say is, given a choice, a medium sized 2-way in a great sounding room will outperform all other options in a poor room. "

Agree 100%, with this caveat- any speaker design, in a great sounding room. will outperform all others in a poor room.
The room (and the setup) will determine AT LEAST 50% of the sound.
Erik, I know you are just as big a proponent of setup and treatment as I am, but it seems most aren't.
Way too many people spend too much on gear and not enough on treatment and a meticulous setup, IMO.
