Tekton Design Moab


Ordered a pair just now. In Dark Gray, to which Tammy immediately said, "Oh the Charcoal is beautiful!" Charcoal sounds better than Dark Gray (even though we are talking about the same color!) so Charcoal it is!  

My beloved Talon Khorus do still sound awfully good. It will be interesting to see how the Moabs stock out of the box compare with these tweaked and modded warhorses. Both the strength, and the weakness, of the Khorus is using the 10" woofer to cover so much midrange. Its a strength because it makes for a very smooth and cohesive sound. But its a weakness because its asking a lot of such a large driver to go so high. Talon makes up for it with their isobaric design. Mounted inside and directly behind the woofer is another identical driver facing the opposite direction. The idea is this relieves the front facing driver of having to compress the air inside the cabinet. This does allow for a much faster response, and is a big reason for the wonderful music the Khorus produces. 

I have a feeling however it is no match for Eric Alexander's ultra-low mass driver array solution. Only one way to know for sure. So we will just have to see!

Only thing is, at least with the metronome we know what event it is that we’re talking about. Tick-tock, tick-tock. That’s it. What event is it we’re talking about with PRAT? Oh sure everyone guesses it has something to do with the leading edges of transients maintaining their relationship with fundamentals and harmonics. I guess. You may guess different. Your guess is as good as mine.

That’s the problem. We can’t even agree on what it is we’re talking about. PRAT is gobbledygook. Sorry. But it is.

Cal91-the covid19 is a political Hoax. We do have viruses as well as other sicknesses that kill tens of thousands each year. Only the left are pushing the extreme shutdowns At this time, you can’t eat in a restaurant but you can protest and riot in groups of thousands touching and being very close to each other.

>>>>Uh, but this one is going to kill 200,000 and a great many of those deaths could have been avoided if we didn’t have so many coronavirus deniers and conspiracy theorists. That’s kind of the way it goes. People oft follow the wrong sheep. 🐑 🐑 🐑
Pithy? Full of pith? 😳

I do not understand much about measurements either.
"No one does...."

Dr. F. Toole might be an exception.

Thanks, that’s very comforting. 
The Northwest US seems to be a hotbed of conspiracy theorists and generally hostile and angry people. Maybe it’s because of all the rain, who the heck knows? At least it’s not a CCCP virus. Then we’d really be in deep kimchi.
