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!

Yes but one sheet would easily do the internal brace behind each woofer in each speaker, and the crossovers. Unfortunately he wants $40 just for shipping. 
At rix,

I am sorry I misread your intentions of glowing praise.
Apology accepted. In the future, do try to work on your reading comprehension.
Yes and by claiming that your assumption regarding the drivers is correct and that Eric is "mistaken", that’s not calling him a liar. You’re helping to restore his credibility by sharing your (so far, unsubstantiated) opinion?

"You’re helping to restore his credibility..."

Has he ever lost it?
