@millercarbon The woofer is being 5 feet apart what is one of the factors are used to make the purchase of the Moab over the encore. Also the extra 2 dB of sensitivity. Might not get the resolution of the superior drivers in the encore though. And also, since my room is small, I don’t think I’ll miss the mid bass drivers, I don’t listen at super loud volumes anymore, I already have some age related hearing loss. That is on top of high frequency hearing loss from a right ear infection.
Should be an awesome combination with your tube amp. There are some comments that the speakers love current, or need high power to come alive, or things like that. Always take those with a big grain of salt. They just don't match my experience. Which with different speakers has been that amps sound the way they sound regardless of power. In other words I've had amps with less power that sound more powerful than amps with more power. Now granted with only 8 watts or whatever it is not going to play as loud as 300. Not saying that. But it will be interesting to hear your impression when playing within the same volume envelope.
