My swarm sub system is in The Absolute Sound !!
Thank ya’ll very much!Speakermaster wrote:   "Yeah it has been there for years, robert e. greene was the first to review and suggest looking into it and hearing it." Good call! The original version of the Swarm actually dates back to 2006, though ... 
My swarm sub system is in The Absolute Sound !!
"... and not a dollar spent on room treatments... :- " A distributed multi-sub system is more effective at smoothing the in-room bass than extensive and expensive bass trapping, according to acoustician Matthew Poes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?... 
Mixed Use Space - Advice for speakers placed close to back wall
I agree with mijostyn that the radiation pattern control of a good (low-coloration) horn would facilitate getting good spatial qualities with the speakers up against the wall. Early reflections are arguably the ones most detrimental to spatial qua... 
New set up in asymmetrical room - speaker placement etc
While we don't normally think of it this way, my understanding is that the audibility (and objectionability, if that's a word) of reflections is somewhat level-dependent.  One thought-experiment example would be a grand piano in the kitchen - it w... 
Help with Shortlist of Speakers! (SF vs Devore vs Others?)
Thank you very much for the additional information, jpearson3131. I suggest the Larsen 8 or Larsen 9 as candidates for your situation. Here is a review of the Larsen 9; the reviewer is a concert violinist (whose day job is high up in the math depa... 
Help with Shortlist of Speakers! (SF vs Devore vs Others?)
Thanks for providing so much information via your linked drawing and photos. What comes to mind is, speakers optimized to go up against the wall, of which there are not very many but they do exist. Larsen comes to mind. There seems to be a column ... 
My New Magnepan 1.7i's sound dull and lifeless on the top end...why?
Getting good measurements of large dipole loudspeakers is not trivial. By way of example, John Atkinson uses a fairly sophisticated quasi-anechoic measurement technique and you can see his frequency response measurement of the Magnepan LSR on this... 
Maggies with a subwoofer system - optimization?
Hi Tom, if I understand your situation correctly, there is no way to highpass filter the signal before your Krell amplifies it and sends it to the Maggies.   Theoretically you could roll off the bass going to the Maggies by placing a highpass filt...

I am under the impression that a piano moving company might be an option, but I have never used one.   
SOUNDLAB ULTIMATE 545
Pinotnoir, either the MA-1 or the MA-2 would work well with your speakers. SoundLab has shown with both models, and my understanding is that, of the two, they more recently showed with the MA-1s at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. By the way, congratula... 
SOUNDLAB ULTIMATE 545
I’ve been involved with SoundLabs since 1999 and in my experience Atma-Sphere amps are an especially good match with them. As a new dealer I was frustrated that SoundLab wasn’t giving me an amplifier recommendation. So I asked a different question... 
What is the most important component to consider while building a new system?
Amp + speakers + room = a "system within a system". These three need to work together well.  Not saying these are the most important individually, but imo their synergy is.  Duke 
Distributed Bass Array configuration
@scm asked, " When using the crawl method and picking the best spot for Sub #1 are you supposed to then power up Sub #1 while crawling for Sub #2`s best spot and so on with each sub thereafter....??" Yes. When doing the Crawl to set up a Swarm or ...
