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!

And Oh what fling they will be!
grey9hound, where did you find the Encore specs?
That is what we hope for. Maybe they even prove themselves worthy of "forever".
MC, a RAW rolling paper or The ultra thin ZigZag is .015 thick. the cover to hold the papers is .08 thick..

You can measure it with WAX wire gauge.
You just need to stabilize the base insert the wire gauge between cabinet and base, and measure the width of the wire after a play session. It is as accurate as an accelerometer.
Just not, on the fly data.. That’s really helpful too.

It’s surprising how much EVERYTHING really moves, when we think it’s calm...

Oh no, SAM is moving amongst us, at 440 hz. LOL that's pretty fast, that's left, right, left,
440 times in a second.
Gotta be an X-File thing. Mulder...  SHE always called him MOLDER, it's MULDER, SCULLY!!!
Where are you.. all vibrating and everything at 440...in the desert....
Remember that... maybe it 14,000 hz, oh what the heck, what's a few thousand, hear or there. :-)

Chicken feeding time...

A 320 hz note relates to a cabinet motion of .1mm . Which would mean all cone wave launches above this frequency would be out of time with those below..so much for time alignment. Which tells us the cabinet must be kept still to actually achieve wave launch and time alignment. Tom
