The right 2 way system with a compression driver would open up your ears and eyes. Small room, yes. Directness, yes. Much lower distortion, great dynamics.

All fullrange driver get some weakness points, it is reason
why audiophile prefer traditional 3 way design. The best
idea the using Full range driver in 500-10000 Hz region.
No any full range driver FRD coudnt compare with good woofer
Any whizzer cone coudnt compare with Air transformer to
produce good high, any thing else is the dreams. Also
all FRD get suckout in midbass, so if you add Sub is not solve the problem
Okay THANK YOU! :-)
Got the first box from Brian a couple of days ago and will post blog photos and pics soon. Packed like a labor of love, I'll say that!
Two more boxes to go. One heavy one with transformers due in a couple of days and a third after that with some tubes that were backordered.
No plans to dump my De Capos any time soon...
Open baffle fr (visa ton b200 imo) with 15" Hawthorne Augie... You run the visaton or fostex, lowther etc full range and connect a plate amp with pages and xover to the Augie. Game over.
I just came from listening to a $200,000 pair of SOTA speakers, and I prefer the 'cheap' ob. I've tried back loaded horns, various boxes etc. Once I heard single drivers I knew there was no turning back.... But. Always the but.
Google Gravity well of a dark star.
There are many ways to flog a horse so please don't flame me.
But no tannoys, or conventional speakers come close to the OB's in the areas that move me an make me irrationally wild and passionate about this hobby and music in general.
Augies. I swear.
