Smaller speaker to replace Khorus in Tact system
I'm looking to replace my Talon Khoruses with a smaller, preferably floorstanding, speaker. Price range $3000-$5000 used.
I'm using a Tact 2.2x preamp/crossover and 2150 amp/DAC.
I don't need deep bass as I'm using dual subs (RBH 1010 driven by BC Evo 200.2 amp) crossed over at 250 Hz (with the Talons).
With the subs, I don't need the bass extension the Khoruses provide, so thought I'd look for a smaller speaker.
I've enjoyed the Khoruses, but my prefernce would be one that's less recessed in the mids, needing less correction from the Tact. Probably a 2-way, as the 3-ways usually cross over to the bass driver too low (Hz) for use in my application.
Will consider monitors, but tend to (aesthetically) prefer floor standers. I've considered Focus, and also Merlins, but not sure if the Bam would present a problem.
Since I'll probably purchase used, I won't go to a dealer to audition.
Any ideas welcomed.
