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!

Congratulations! The Moabs are very intriguing to me and I’d love to hear them. I was torn between buying those and the Klipsch Cornwall IV and ended up with the Klipsch. I hope you get many hours of enjoyable listening out of those bad boys!! 
Congratulations you are going to love them. I have a pair of the Ulfberhts and my only regret is that I didn’t get them in a custom color. Tekton Design speakers while they are a performance bargain can be very expensive to keep because they tell you exactly what the rest of your system is or isn’t doing.
Hey Millercarbon, I think you meant the quote below to be placed in a conspiracy rant on some political website:

In other words what the banksters and the Fed do now, The Matrix robots would be doing. But the banksters bankroll Hollywood, that’s way too much truth for debt slaves, and so instead we got a word salad shoot em up. ”

You know that you only want to open up those speakers to see if David Icke is hiding in one of them. Trolls used to steal other’s threads, now they steal their own. 
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.
I am purchasing a Pair of the Utah made  MOAB Speakers!
It is good to see all of the comments everyone has posted.
I broke the bank also to get a Parasound A21+ amp. Pairing everything up with my Marantz AV 7705.
New to the Audiophile scene. Can anyone assure me this will be a Good setup?? :)  I HOPE!  Thanks
