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!

A couple of years ago I called Eric to ask about one of his product's. It was as if I was trying to talk with the Tasmanian Devil in the middle of a tornado, on methamphetamines while blindfolded. He actually was upset that I called.
Now, I understand that people get busy and all, but image and first impressions mean a lot.   It just didn't sit well with me.
I didn't purchase anything from him.
Great news. Imagine if everyone was like me, all logic and results oriented. Without all the emotionally immature people easily turned off by the least relevant things no telling how long I might have had to wait, or how much more it would cost.
devilboy , Sure, Eric is a speaker designer, a mad scientist type even. He does not farm out his calls to some offshore customer service center. Thank God, we would never get any real questions answered that way.
I would rather talk with the man and get exactly what I want and then some even if I needed to call a few times.
It would appear devilboy didn’t get any real questions answered, or get what he wanted.
There is no excuse for poor customer service. None.


Great news. Imagine if everyone was like me.
What a disturbing thought....
