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!

tallnotshort, That is cool
nwres - I am also in the Chicagoland area - Gurnee.  Your setup is wayyyy more superior than mine.  Nice pics.
tallnotshort - Thanks, but don't forget, You're the one with the Moabs.

I'm in Mount Prospect, not too far. Ping me if you want to share some tunes some time.
Added to the list. Thanks.

Pressed for time today, got a lot to do but wanted to snap some pics of the current setup before the ugly spring things Rick got me making. See if you can count all the tweaks. First one to correctly find and explain the mystery connection gets moved to the genius level audiophile list. The only clue I will give is to read the captions.
Hey now were talking!  They  look very nice in there!   Just don't let any kids near all those exposed soft dome tweets.
