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!

Interesting points about these 2 kind of springs..... Thanks...
mapman,

"Oh God, someone is now actually pitching for Machina Dynamica."

There are a few threads, as recent as a day or two ago, in which people talk about those springs. Some names I recognize. Regardless of your and my opinion about Machina Dynamica (which is quite similar, by the way), I think it is only fair to remind people about it when talking about springs. In some way, it may be reality check and the moment to expand the discussion.
squeak_king_77 ,  I appreciate your thoughts on the potential differences of the stacked wave springs and sorry if I came off as putting words in your mouth, completely not intended.

Rixthetrick, thank you as well for adding your thoughts.
Ok fine Glupson. You can recommend whatever you want as can anyone. Just be willing to live with the consequences.
mapman,

"Ok fine Glupson.  You can recommend whatever you want."
Hold on, I am not recommending anything here. Not even Moabs. Just reminding of options. I do not want to be guilty by association.
